Broadcast Tape Transfer Services | Convert Tapes to Digital
Broadcast tapes are professional video tape formats used for television or motion picture production due to their superior picture and sound quality. Unfortunately due to the magnetic structure of the tapes, especially Betacam, Digibeta, DVCPRO, DVCAM, these become prone to deterioration with decay happening within 5 years with loss of quality as time goes on.
