Transfer a MiniDV video tape (up to 2 hours) to DVD or digital video file!
DVD: Videos can be combined together (up to 2 hours) on a single DVD to save on the amount of final DVD's produced.. DVD includes interactive chapter menu screen and scene selection for easy browsing through your video. Includes labeled DVD disc and jacket cover.
Digital: Edit your videos yourself, share them online with family and friends, or digitally preserve your memories for the future by converting to digital file (AVI or MP4) on USB flash drive, external drive, or to an FTP cloud drive.
AVI vs MP4 - Both formats can be edited in any video editing program
AVI files: These type of files are the highest quality, non-compressed digital video files that we generate and transfer to USB or external hard drive. The average hour long video generates an approximate 21GB size file. These type of files may be too large in size for some FTP Could drives, and most Smart TVs and devices do not support streaming or playing AVI files. Some MAC computer systems will need to download VLC Player in order to view AVI files.
MP4 Files: These type of files are a compressed, very high quality digital format that is about the 1/3 of the size of AVI files. The average hour long MP4 avi file is about 7GB in size. These type of files are more compatible direct playing off the USB drive on Smart TVs and for streaming on wireless devices. Both Apple computers and PC computers can playing MP4 files without the need of a special media player.
