Q. Can you edit with old video formats?
A. Yes, we can handle older video tape formats, from VHS, SHVS, Hi8, DVCPro, Betacam sp, Digital Betacam and Umatic. If you have a library of archive footage on old formats, we can work with them, and it’s worth considering getting them transferred to an updated digital format. Tape degenerates over time unless stored in climate controlled facilities. But a more immediate problem is the difficulty of finding facilities with video tape machines to play older video formats.
