Video to DVD & HD Blu-Ray

Video to DVD TransferThere’s been so many different video formats over the years that it’s tough to keep track!  We’ve got you covered though as we offer video to dvd transfers on many video types, big and small.

Using our Professional Video Capture Decks we can capture your video tapes and convert them to a cleaner digital format, transferring them onto DVD or to a computer video file for you to edit yourself. Using time based correction our system can improve noise reduction, image stabilization and overall preserve your treasured memories.

We also cover some high definition formats and even offer HD upscaling for those interested in the current tech!

Introducing the Teranex Processor for maximum quality video transfers to DVD or Bluray

Now in operation at ANU Media is the extremely powerful Teranex Convertor helping us push those old memories even further, producing stunning results in upscaling analogue video to HD as well as sharpening images on SD transfers. Matched up with our Time Based Correction units we’re doing our best video transfers yet…


Video Transfer

Analogue video to dvd transfers.

Analogue video tapes are captured through our video decks which make use of 3D Y/C separation, 3D noise reduction and Line Time Base Correction features to help enhance and restore old analogue video.

Advanced Image Enhancement Features

Advanced Image Enhancement Features.
2D/3D Y/C separation - 2D Y/C separation separates Brightness (Y) and Chrominance (C) from the composite source signal by one frame. The 3D Y/C separation separates by cross-referencing each frame with the frames immediately in front and behind, further refining and improving the overall image quality.

Digital 3D Noise Reduction

Digital 3D Noise Reduction.
Eliminates noise in the analog video signal by detecting noise based on the characteristics.

Digital Line Time Base Corrector

Digital Line Time Base Corrector.
Detects images with strong horizontal jitter and employs powerful correction methods to repair the jitter.

Digital Tape Transfers

Digital video to dvd transfers.

Digital tapes are captured via our capture decks over firewire connections retaining the full quality of your footage.

Image wise there’s normally nothing much to be done other than a touch of colour correction and some room for standard cut-and-move editing.



HD Video Transfer

HD Video

High definition video to Blu-Ray, ProRes or MP4.

HD is becoming the standard in today camcorders with most now coming with internal hard drvies, slots for SD cards or both.

The quality of HD does vary between cameras but ANU Media can transfer the full quality footage to Blu-Ray or to an external hard drive in ProRes/MP4 for you to edit on your computer.


Video Upscaling

SD video upscale to HD.

Every household seems to have a HDTV these days and those old VHS tapes just don’t cut it anymore! Using the powerful Teranex processor we can now offer next level hardware based upscaling, producing the most crisp image we can achieve from old analogue tapes. Matched up with a TBC unit, we’re able to achieve a steady, sharpened and full 1080p upscale on older video formats. Just like with our cine film transfers though, a lot of analogue video was filmed in 4:3 aspect so black bars are added at the side of the image so that the image isn’t stretched/squashed. Examples on out upscales will be available shortly…
