Digitising MiniDV video tapes

Digitisng MiniDV video tapes is actually the wrong term. Mini DV format is already digital, but the question is how to turn those already digital video tapes into a convenient digital file that can be stored on a computer, tablet, phone or USB stick and played back on a TV screen? Well, it is not so straightforward as one can guess. The thing is that transfer of MiniDV videos between Mini DV camcorders and computers had to be done using the already obsolete Firewire interface that modern-day computers do not support anymore. Another way is simply capture miniDV video as analog using RCA cable and video capture cards. But this is wrong. Digital video is douwngraded to analog in a camcodrer first and then capuured and digitised again by the video capture card. This method is lossy and is definetely not recommended.

Here, at the National Video Centre we maintain high-quality Firewire adapters that can be used with modern-day PC systems and we can do the job properly, transferring Mini DV video tapes as high quality lossless avi DV video, the same as is on actual Mini DV tape.
