In 1996 Sony introduced the Betacam SX, not as a replacement to the Digital Betacam, but a more affordable alternative. Unlike the DigiBeta’s uncompressed video, Betacam SX uses a compressed video format called MPEG-2, while still maintaining a high resolution.

Around this time, due to the increasing number of Beta formats available, Sony began to colour code their tapes to easily differentiate formats between each other. BetacamSX is often found coloured a bright yellow.

ARCHIVAL VS. BROADCAST GRADE?


While both Broadcast Grade & Archival Grade transfers at Digital Treasures make use of the same capture hardware, each service offers a variety of delivery options and additional assets.

Archival Grade clients can choose to receive files at 2K or 4K resolution, or in the original resolution and non-square aspect ratio of the source format. Codec options include H.264/5, ProRes, Avid DNX, and Blu-ray.

For clients converting content for streaming providers or television broadcast, this new tier of service is focused on delivering to the exact standards of online distributors, including packaging of closed captions and additional audio languages.

ABOUT DIGITAL TREASURES


Photo of the front of the building

In 2014 Digital Treasures went fully commercial and became a part of the Digital Treasury Group (DTG). DTG is exclusively focused on being the highest-quality provider of full-suite media conversion and archiving services nationally. We operate under a fully integrated ‘lean’ business model utilizing industry best practices for providing low-cost/high-value digital solutions to the commercial, institutional and retail marketplaces. Our infrastructure has been purpose-built to (1) mitigate all potential risks associated with the handling and processing of a high volume of multiple media formats and (2) ensure the delivery of a best-quality digital solution fit to the client’s specific requirements. Our methodology is based upon 10 years of dedicated media conversion and archiving experience coupled with 15 years of leading-edge corporate experience resulting in the creation of what we know to be the “best in class” provider of these services in Canada.
