FAQ and common situations:
What do I do with all of the videotapes I have? Accord can digitize all formats of videotape from Digital Beta, 1”, D2, D3 Betacam SP, DVC-Pro, DVCAM and Mini-DV to HD formats like, HDV, DVC-Pro HD, HDCAM, HDCAM SR and D5. All formats can be channeled to DVD, Firewire Drive, or ADAM.

I have tapes and hard drives taking up a lot of office space. Space is money. The less space you need to store tapes and hard drives translates to cost efficiency. By digitizing these tapes and putting the digital files on to the ADAM system you will not only access files easier, but save money in the process.

I spend hours looking for specific shots and footage. Once your tapes are digitized, all of your footage can be meta tagged and is available via the internet. You can conduct a search in seconds and view proxy files of your footage to pick the right shot faster than ever.

Everyone needs a different file format or CODEC- it drives me crazy. By storing all your footage on the ADAM system your sanity will be restored. The ADAM system allows you to promptly retrieve all of the files you need, including Pro REZ files for Final Cut editing, DNX files for AVID editing and Windows Media files

I have several stakeholders in projects are all over the world whom need to see rough cuts simultaneously. The Accord Digital Asset Management service is available anywhere in the world where there is an internet connection. Even if their internet connection is slow they can still view rough cuts via small size proxy files. This service offers you password protection with the ability for clients to make notes without complications. ADAM makes it simple.

I have thousands of tapes and hundreds of video files - can I afford this service? Accord offers packages including digitizing and storage for a low monthly fee. There are various options for you to select the package that best fits your budget and needs.
