DVCPRO Digitisation - DAMsmart

Two decades of history

Launched in 1995, DVCPRO is one of two professional variations on the industry-standard DV formed used by high-end broadcasters. In plain English, this means that in the last two decades, a significant portion of invaluable broadcast news has been recorded and stored on DVCPRO tapes.

Now that the world is digital, accessing and preserving this historic content is becoming an increasingly pressing concern for those that hold DVCPRO in their archive. It’s now been five years since Panasonic stopped selling equipment using videotape, rendering the content held on these tapes inaccessible.

Reconnect with your content

At DAMsmart, we can clean, repair and digitise all varieties of DVCPRO tapes including DVCPRO25, DVCPRO50, DVCPRO HD and DVCPRO Progressive. All of our video digitisation systems and workflows were developed in line with global best practice, from our purpose-built equipment to our maintenance to the quality control of your digital archives, and we are committed to recovering your content in the highest possible quality. We can also deliver a range of digital files to address your needs for preservation, production and access.

Why DAMsmart?

“Digitising and preserving the irreplaceable interviews that make up the Australians at War Film Archive was a critical matter, not only for us, but for all those who will want access to these astonishing personal records now and well into the future. DAMsmart was our first and last choice for this project because of their integrity, efficiency and complete care of the client’s valuable assets. The project was completed on 4me and on budget and it’s hard to ask for more.”
