The right time to Digitize Media lying on your tapes is “RIGHT NOW”

Legacy DV Tapes

A number of Broadcasters are sitting on a huge pile of valuable media lying on legacy Tapes. The need to digitize them has been growing stronger over the years. We have reached a point where further delays in Digitization could punch a huge hole in your pocket.

Digitization costs increasing graph

Observing industry trends one thing is clear – in the past couple of years the cost of digitization is increasing exponentially. This could be due to the following reasons

  1.  Discontinuation of VTR manufacturing by major vendors.(Source). With this we have to rely upon used VTR’s, they will be difficult to find as days progress.
  2. Since most of the Broadcast Environments are now File based, the Manpower expertise to hande legacy tapes is fast diminishing and becoming an rare expertise.
  3. As tapes are getting old the chances of data corruption are higher, this in turn will need restoration which will be an additional burden. Restoration is a manpower intensive hence a costly affair.

The RIGHT TIME to digitize media is right NOW
