MiniDV to Digital Conversions

Video Capture - The Mighty Mini


Are you looking for a way to convert mini dv to digital formats? At Supaphoto, our expert technicians offer a mini dv tape transfer service that will backup and restore your old tapes. 

So many families have their family holidays, home movies, school plays on a variety of tape formats on video tapes. These sometimes include MiniDV. No problem there. We can convert it all. We love to help and will keep it simple in jargon free language. 

Typically you’ll elect for digital delivery through our Supaphoto Cloud where you can also share them with your family. You may also like the idea of a long-lasting, easy to use memory stick or a lovely DVD in one of our presentation cases.

Our MiniDV Transfer Process

Once your Mini DV tapes are received at our secure premises, we’ll ensure that they are safely logged onto our tracking system. Then, our dedicated team will carefully carry out an initial inspection to determine the condition and length of each tape.

Next, they will pass to our dedicated studio to inspect, clean and determine the length of each MiniDV tape.

Finally, your home videos will be passed to our video capture team who will carefully carry out the transfer using a mini dv deck, monitoring the output of the MiniDV to digital or DVD along the way in real time.

How well do Mini DV Tapes keep?

Mini DV tapes are recorded digitally. You should bear in mind that once digital corruption has happened, sadly, it simply cannot be restored. So the sooner you decide to convert MiniDV to digital or mini dv to dvd, the happier you’ll be. 

Your memories will live to see another day. We are passionate about our tape to dvd service and will do our best to ensure that each special moment is captured so that you can share them with future generations.

Convert Mini DV to Digital

Our typical video transfer service is to convert MiniDV into digital files in MP4 digital files. This has a few great advantages. Firstly it will typically play across most platforms – i.e PC,MAC, mobiles etc. Secondly you can easily share it with your family. Lastly, you can have great fun editing them if you wish.

Before you transfer your tapes to digital, you may already know that you can even upload them to your social media platforms or family tree sites as a lovely project that you can take your time over a cup of tea.

This offers you and your family the most versatility. Digital video files can be stored on a flash drive, hard drive, computer, device or in the cloud. They can also be edited, emailed, copied, uploaded and more. 

You may be interested to know that the DV uses digital data. When MiniDV camcorders were first launched, it was considered to be a great leap forward – forget your vhs player and recorder. 

It was relatively better quality over say video 8 or VHSc. However, the downside is that they are prone to degradation and digital corruption which can create problems with the audio and nasty video pixelation.

The tape is also quite flimsy so gets easily damaged. So the message is clear – don’t put off your project anymore – act now to save and preserve those memories.
