MicroMVMicroMV was a proprietary videotape format introduced in 2001 by Sony. This cassette is physically smaller than a Digital8 or DV cassette. In fact, MicroMV is the smallest videotape format — 70% smaller than MiniDV or about the size of two US quarter coins. Each cassette can hold up to 60 minutes of video.

micromv tapeThe MicroMV format does not use the highly popular DV format. Instead, it uses 12 Mbit/s MPEG-2 compression, like that used for DVDs and HDV.

Conversion Process

We ensure the best quality in every single process of the conversion. All conversions are done on professional high end players with 1:1 digital transfer. Video and audio signals are transmitted on thick cables with gold plated connectors. No power source is placed near the players. All these are to reduce the interferences into the electronic signals so as to capture the signal in its original form as best as possible.

Unlike analog conversions, no video quality is lost during the conversion to AVI as MicroMV records the video and audio data digitally.

Encoding of video to formats such as MPEG is based on the AVI captured file. The encoding is done using production quality conversion settings, which requires much more CPU processing power but gives a slightly better end result. We utilize quad core processor workstations to process your videos. If you need MPEG2 format, encoding is not needed as the video in a MicroMV cassette is already encoded in MPEG2 unlike other DV camcorders.

With all these, we always ensure audio and video synchronization is maintained throughout the whole process.

If we notice any major faults in the video, we will ask you before proceeding. At this point, you will not be charged a single cent if you decide not to continue with the conversion. Common major faults we've encountered are

  1. Badly damaged taped (we do not convert these)
  2. Snapping / tearing of tape
