Does the Asiva process require the video source material to be of a certain quality or format?
The Asiva system stores and processes everything internally in 10-bit D1 (NTSC or PAL). Analog to Digital converters and other equipment allow virtually any video tape source format (e.g. HI-8, MiniDV, DVCPro, BetaSP, Digital BETACAM, etc.) to be converted to D1 for input to Asiva. We have successfully worked with HI-8 source material on up the format ladder to D1 source.
