HDCAM BETACAM TAPE TO DVD TRANSFER SERVICE

WE TRANSFER YOUR HDCAM BETACAM TAPES TO DVD, BLU-RAY OR MOV / MP4

HDCAM Betacam Tapes to DVD, Blu-ray, or USB
HDCAM Betacam tapes are most commonly seen in the professional studio environment. We can currently convert six varieties of Betacam tapes: Betacam, Betacam SP, Digital Betacam, Betacam SX, Betacam MPEG IMX, and HDCAM. We can even repair most Betacam tapes FREE of charge.

Also, if your HDCAM Betacam tape is under 5 minutes in length, then we only charge £10.00 for the conversion!

We hope to add the ability to transfer HDCAM SR format tapes in the near future.

HDCAM tapes

HDCAM tape history

HDCAM is a high-definition video digital recording videocassette version of Digital Betacam introduced in 1997 that uses an 8-bit compressed 3:1:1 recording, in 1080i-compatible down-sampled resolution of 1440×1080, and adding 24p and 23.976 progressive segmented frame (PsF) modes to later models. The HDCAM codec uses rectangular pixels and as such the recorded 1440×1080 content is upsampled to 1920×1080 on playback. The recorded video bit rate is 144 Mbit/s. Audio is also similar, with four channels of AES3 20-bit, 48 kHz digital audio. 

Like most videotape formats, HDCAM is no longer in widespread use and Sony officially discontinued the format in 2016.
