About DVCam Tapes:


DVCAM stands for Digital Video Camera and was introduced by Sony as their professional DV format.  It is a robust variant of the DV format targeted towards professional videographers.   DVCAM uses a faster recording speed than DV which gives it the ability to do a frame accurate tape edit, a slight reduction in picture artifacts due to tape defects, the ability to pre-set time codes, locked audio to prevent audio sync issues.  DVCAM also uses up about 3 times the amount of tape as standard DV.  A DVCAM  can be recorded onto a standard DV size cassette 4 7/8 wide by 3 1/16 high and 9/16 deep or onto a miniDV cassette 2 9/16 wide by 1 7/8 high and 7/16 depth.


 Why transfer DVCAM to DVD?



DVCAM tapes degrade over time and your video memories are in danger.  In fact DVCAM tapes start to have noticeable degradation after just 5 years.  For more information about how DVCAM tapes degrade over time and how to store DVCAM tapes check our our How to Store and Care for Video Tapes article.




DVD Advantages are numerous.  DVDs are digital and can be copied without any quality loss.  You can easily playback DVDs making it easy to enjoy your DVCAM home videos.  Unlike a DVCAM tape DVDs don't have to be rewound and you can easily watch your favorite family memories over and over.  Plus DVDs take up less space than DVCAM tapes so you have plenty of room for more family video memories.
