Review of Mini-DV to DVD Service
"Superb ... as you know we used another firm before but these DVD's are superior and ironically cheaper than the other company"
Jason Peel - Wirral
"Dear Joan. The order was great, it was the first time my children had seen my grandad, so thanks for the excellent work. I would recommend your Mini-DV service to anyone. Thanks once again"
Angela Dunbar - Edinburgh
"Thanks for tranferring my tape, my DSR-1000 machine gave up the ghost a long time ago and sadly I was ripped off on Ebay when I buy the JVC GX95 camcorder"

Mini DV and DV family of Cassettes
Digital Video, known as DV, was launched in 1995. There are three main formats in this video group. The two marketed for professional use are DVCam and DVCPro, the domestically marketed is the Mini-DV. This family of video tapes were smaller and much easier to handle than any of its predecessors.
Let's do a short review on the Mini-DV Tape.
Due to their size and cost, the DV video tapes could be transported by news reporters. They no longer needed a camera crew, just a camera man with a DV camcorder and either Mini DV, DVCam or DVCPro tapes. And so they were born, reporters that could film their own news clips. Many video enthusiasts were successful in obtaining short Documentary contracts and Movies for TV cable networks.
Although they were developed for the domestic market as a replacement for VHS tapes, but with much higher quality, the large DV tapes are almost non existent in the domestic market, and are only used in professional settings.
Due to its cost and size, Mini-DV is the most versatile and popular cassette format in todays camcorder tape market. Mini DV was very popular as many contained FireWire connections allowing Mini DV to be transferred to AVI and then subsequently to MPEG for DVD.
The main manufacturers of Mini-DV video cameras were Panasonic, Sharp, JVC and of course Hitachi. Mini-DV digital camcorders are still widley used today due to their digital electronics there is little difference between these and the DVD camcorders.
