Video - Standards conversion


Any 8 or 16mm film source can be transferred to either full HD or 10-bit SD digital and either kept as a file or printed to tape (DigiBeta, DVCam, Betacam etc).


Converting between a different numbers of pixels, pixel shape, resolution and frame rates in video pictures is a complex technical problem. The international exchange of TV programming makes standards conversion necessary and in many cases mandatory. Vastly different TV systems emerged for political and technical reasons. Electricity supplies varying at 50 Hrz or 60 Hrz demand that conversion is vital.

Using industry standard technologies, conversion is carried out to provide video with no degradation of quality, no flicker or dropped frames or noticable color washout.

Video - Re-version video

Most HD and SD video sources can be re-versioned for use on the internet, larger displays or inclusion on BluRay or DVD for European, American and Asian distribution: HD formats - 720p, 1080i and 1080p, SD formats - MPG, FLV, WMV, QuickTime, YouTube compatible etc.

Charges are calculated based on the following:

  • Length and format of your source material
  • Length and number of 'clips' (sections of video to be used)
  • Format of source material
  • Number of export formats required.
  • Number of exported data rates (Multiple file sizes for the user to choose based on their internet connection: 56k modem, ISDN or Broadband)
