Equipment

Video digitization (Note: The video digitization software is currently out of order. We apologize for the inconvenience.)

  • mini-DV (through use of a provided camcorder)
  • VHS and S-VHS
  • DVD player

Audio Digitization

  • Audio cassette player
  • Turntable

  • music from USB device

In addition to these 2 workstations, the SMS has a device for capturing and digitizing 8mm film. Due to the fragility of 8mm film, film is only handled by the user / owner of the material not the SMS staff, and it's at the user's own risk. Note: The 8mm film digitizing device is currently out of order. There is no estimate on when (or if) it will become available again.

Software

Additional information

  • Please see an SMS consultant before using a capture station for the first time (for proper operating instructions).
  • If you have a different video format, like Hi-8 or Digital 8 or a camcorder that records to mini-DVD disks, you must bring in your camcorder with AV cables to route through our system for capture and digitizing.
