My boss, who has been recording broll, shows, events, etc. for 25 years, is wanting to digitize his library of 5000 or so tapes (a combo of VHS, SVHS and DVCAM). Of course I get to be point man for finding the equipment/cost analysis. We figure that we will use an old G4 Mac Pro with Final Cut Pro to capture the footage via firewire 400. He recently got a very solid professional SVHS deck with SVHS and composite outputs. While we could run it through a Sony DVCAM deck, experience has proven that while this is good for short clips, it isn't the best for longer clips or for older tapes that would benefit from a bit of boost/help. I'm wondering what the best option would be for a analog to digital converter - not caring so much about price, caring more for quality (the ones I see mentioned on the forum usually have the "it is adequate for the job" and I am looking for "the best quality" option) Figure we will capture to an internal 1 or 2TB hard drive and then once it is full transfer to an external drive for backup (keeping both and the original tapes) Thanks!
