Converting Video Tape Digital quality control

Matching the definition used for conversion is very important!

Only DpsDave gives you a choice.

Definition is the measure of the quality of the digital movie

Using low definition conversion on a high resolution tape will degrade the movie quality.

Using high definition conversion on a low resolution tape doesn't hurt a thing.

What definition Do I Need?
