ANALOG/DIGITAL TAPE CONVERSION GUIDE: https://tinyurl.com/ConvertTapes Transfer your DVCam, DV / miniDV & HDV tapes before they degrade! Deck control and transfer are through 4-pin Firewire. Features a handy LCD display, allowing you to see what is being transferred without hooking up a monitor, a timecode display, and also access various settings. The heads are regularly cleaned and maintained. Many other decks available, as well as miniDV and Digital8 retro camcorders, and handy a 9” CRT broadcast monitor. I can also capture or convert your material for you. NOTE ON TIMECODE BREAKS: because of the thin/narrow tapes and how they are recorded and stored, the DV format is highly prone to timecode breaks. When capturing over Firewire, the playback stops when it hits one of these breaks. This is not the fault of the deck, but the tape itself. It will happen with any deck, and causes many headaches when capturing. The only ways around this are 1) the very time intensive process of manually advancing over the breaks and capturing as separate clips, 2) telling your software, like Adobe Premiere, to ignore the breaks and create new clips when it finds them, or 3) send the analog outputs to a DV converter (lossy) or ProRes A/D converter, and capturing without timecode. I highly suggest renting one of these converters when you rent the deck. Please contact me and I will help you determine what you will need. Lots of other lighting, camera, production, post, and audio equipment available. PLEASE VISIT MY PROFILE FOR CURRENT MEET-UP / DELIVERY OPTIONS AND BUNDLE SPECIALS.
