Video Capture - The Mighty Mini DV Conversion

You may be wondering how to convert mini dv to digital, let us take the stress off your mind.

Once your Mini DV tapes are received at our secure premises, we’ll ensure that they are safely logged onto our tracking system. Then, our dedicated team will carefully carry out an initial inspection to determine the condition and length of each tape.

Next, they will pass to our dedicated studio to inspect, clean and determine the length of each MiniDV tape.

How Well Does A Mini DV Tape To Digital Keep?

Mini DV tapes are recorded digitally. You should bear in mind that once digital corruption has happened, sadly, it simply cannot be restored. So the sooner you decide to convert MiniDV to digital or mini dv to dvd, the happier you’ll be. 

Your memories will live to see another day. We are passionate about our tape to DVD service and will do our best to ensure that each special moment is captured so that you can share them with future generations.

Most People Choose to Transfer Mini DV To MP4

Our typical video transfer service is to convert MiniDV into digital files in MP4 digital files. This has a few great advantages. Firstly it will typically play across most platforms – i.e PC,MAC, mobiles etc. Secondly you can easily share it with your family. Lastly, you can have great fun editing them if you wish.

Before you transfer your tapes to digital, you may already know that you can even upload them to your social media platforms or family tree sites as a lovely project that you can take your time over a cup of tea.

This offers you and your family the most versatility. Digital video files can be stored on a flash drive, hard drive, computer, device or in the cloud. They can also be edited, emailed, copied, uploaded and more. 

You may be interested to know that the DV uses digital data. When MiniDV camcorders were first launched, it was considered to be a great leap forward – forget your vhs player and recorder. 

It was relatively better quality over say Video 8 or VHSc. However, the downside is that they are prone to degradation and digital corruption which can create problems with the audio and nasty video pixelation.

The tape is also quite flimsy so gets easily damaged. So the message is clear – don’t put off your project anymore – act now to save and preserve those memories. At Supaphoto we make customer service out top priority so keep you updated every step of the way, our  first step will be to see what video camera you used, then ensuring the video quality is advanced and finally (if your files are large)  seeing if you have a usb cable  to connect the hard drive to the screen.
