At TechHelp Ottawa, we do video digitizing the right way! We use only the best equipment available such as high quality digital Mini-DVD cameras that are compatible with the North American NTSC format.
We have also invested heavily in state-of-the-art computer software for digitally capturing Mini-DVD content for conversion to MP4 video files. There is an additional fee for digital capture of high definition (HD) content.
MP4 files can be edited for audio and video properties. Just ask us.
• If you’re a Mac computer user, plug in the USB stick, use Finder to locate the USB stick, and double-click on the file you want to play. MP4 files open in the QuickTime app.
• If you’re a Windows user, plug in the USB stick, use Windows Explorer to locate the USB stick, and double-click on the file you want to play. MP4 files open in Windows Media Player or any other 3rd party media player that you’ve installed.
You might want to download and install the VLC app which is a good alternative to the above for playing MP4 files on ether Mac or Windows computers. WEBSITE: https://www.videolan.org
NOTE: Some Mini DV tapes produce high definition images with an aspect ratio of 16 X 9 (compatible with new HD widescreen TVs).
NOTE: Sound restoration techniques can be applied to MP4 video files as well. This is particularly effective in reducing consistent background noise such as fans, air conditioners and hum, and in enhancing voices. Ask us to explain.
When playing these same disks on a DVD player, however, this bottom line—produced by the NTSC video signal—is hidden from view because of over-scanning. Similarly, the electronics of Betamax players hides this skewed line through over-scanning.
Mini-DV tapes that are converted to MP4 video files are cropped at the bottom so that this line is not present.
