We can also convert your tapes to Mpeg2 -MKV if required. For editing and archiving Brismedia offers the highest quality transfer to digital available. The DV-AVI format offers the benefits of being usable on both Windows PC’s and Apple Mac and as its not a heavily compressed format like Mpeg2 or MP4. It is also a far more responsive (no catch up delays)digital file format for video editing and offers the best quality. The downside of DV - AVI is the file size which is about 15 gigabytes per hour for standard definition footage. To ensure you can view / edit the DV- AVI format here is the link to our sample file Click here.(Files are on our older website copyvhstodvd.com.au)Please note, we do not supply support how to edit digital video files as this is such a huge topic.
