MiniDV to Digital
Video Transfers: MiniDV to Digital
MiniDV is a digital video format, developed in the late 1990s as an alternative to analog formats like Hi8 and Video 8.

This format was popular for several years, but it eventually fell out of favour as consumers chose to transition to DVD-based camcorders and digital cameras. The last MiniDV camcorder was produced in 2010, and since then many people who have used this format have found themselves wondering what to do with their old tapes.

The answer is simple: don’t wait to transfer the footage to a digital format. The transfer process will bring your MiniDV footage into the digital age—allowing you to view it on a computer, share it with friends and family members, or even upload it onto the internet.

How Does the VideoMedia Transfer Process Work?
VideoMedia's digital transfer service allows you to quickly and easily convert your precious MiniDV, preserving the quality and integrity of your videos.

To ensure that your memories are preserved in their best form, our technicians will at first carefully inspect each tape for damage or degradation.

The next step is digitizing your footage. Our technicians use state-of-the-art technology to transfer your MiniDV tapes into digital format. Special attention is given to the preservation of content so that every aspect of your videos is preserved for you to enjoy. 

Once your tapes are digitized, your newly converted digital file will be loaded onto your choice of USB key, external hard drive DVD, or other devices of your choice. You’ll receive your original MiniDV tapes back along with your freshly minted digital files.

My mom passed away back in 2008 and I randomly found this tape VHS with no way of knowing what was on it, so I needed a service that was able to convert it onto a CD or USB, anything. I am so happy I found this VideoMedia. There were able to transfer it flawlessly and now this is the last footage of have of my mom on camera, I get to see her and hear her voice. I'm so happy I have this footage forever now. The service was great and Michel was so kind :)

J'ai fait mettre sur 3 clés des vieux films et des diapositives qui dataient de plus de 35 ans et vraiment ils ont fait un job exceptionnel.  Ils sont très professionnels et le service impeccable, d'autant plus que les prix sont plus qu'abordables.  Un gros MERCI.
