This is a big problem for billions of people and millions of businesses!

"Recordable DVDs" are the DVD discs that

My tutorial, How Pigs Fly and DVD Longevity Soars deals with the "Lies and Statistics" behind DVDs that are used to defraud the public (that's YOU)!

Both tutorials are "MUST READ TUTORIALS" -- which you may want to bookmark and share -- with friends and family -- to protect their 16mm film, 8mm film and video tapes, too!

The PROBLEM:

DVD Discs are last decades' technology...

According to both

Recordable DVDs

Yet billions of DVD discs are sold as "archive media" -- obstructing NARA archive guidelines for 16mm, 8mm film and video tape transfers.

NOTE: We sell thousands of DVDs, even "archive gold" type DVD discs -- but we do NOT sell DVD discs - as being "archive worthy". DVD discs are NOT achive worthy.

BOTTOM LINE:

The Solution:

Solid State DVD™ Archive System

Welcome to this decade with ...

Solid State DVD™ -- SSDVD™ -- Archive Systems
featuring Solid-State™ DVDs

SSDVD Archive Systems EXCEED Standards of the

  • National Archives and
  • The Library of Congress!

Instead of

  • Archiving TO DVD DISCS --
  • which are NOT archive worthy
  • according to The National Archives and The Library of congress;

SSDVD Archive Systems, save

  • the ENTIRE DVD DISC --
  • as a DIGITAL IMAGE (a digital picture of the DVD disc)
  • to both Solid State and Mass Storage devices.
  • There IS NO PHYSICAL DISC
  • until you decide to burn one
  • from the Virtual DVD Disc-IMAGE.
  • Meanwhile, you can
  • Play the DVD Disc-Image -- just like a disc; or
  • Copy the DVD Disc-Image -- to share with family
  • from a tiny little Solid-State™ DVD
  • which we also call a "Player-Drive"
  • which is our descriptive name for the product line.

SSDVD Video Archive™ System

  • FOR "JUST A LITTLE MORE"
  • THAN "JUST DVD DISCS"

Important Note: To have a "true archive" you must have 4 (four) copies of the master files. Most people buy the "basic" system -- and duplicate it to another 3 (three) SSD or HDD in their family. More later.

The Foundation of your Virtual Video Archive™ System

  • is what we call Digital-Film™ Master-Files™
  • Your Home Movies -- which have been Image and Color Enhanced for HDTV.

Your Digital-Film Master-Files are used

  1. to make ALL "other video formats" in your Archive System, and
  2. to make all physical "video products" and
  3. to make you Virtual Video Archive™ System itself.

Each video format targets a set of functional uses -- according to the "needs" of different family members.

Some video formats targeting preservation and editing.
Some target use with HDTV.
Some target legacy technology (like DVD players).
Some target Internet use.
Some target the need of cheap and easy sharing (distribution).

With a Virtual Video Archive™ System you can make ALL the products below --
as many as your entire family will EVER need -- FOREVER!

Last, but not least, these product are FUN and EASY -- to USE and to SHARE!

 

SSDVD™ System Components -- for your family!



SSDVD Archive Player-Drives™ (pictured above)
THE FOUNDATION OF YOUR ARCHIVE SYSTEM

  • Play video - using an On-board Media-Player™
  • Copy video - to make more SSDVD™ Player-Drives™
  • Burn video - for SSDVD™ Player-Drives™ that have DVD Disc-IMAGEs™ -- to make old fashioned DVD discs - which we all love!
  • Each SSDVD™ has a SSDVD™ Player-Drive Tutorial™ to learn how to do ALL the above,
  • Each SSDVD™ Player- Drive has a Strategic Video Archive Plan -- to perpetuate the Family SSDVD Archive System.

Unlike "Portable" SSDVD Player-Drives (below), these "Archive" SSDVD Player-Drives stores large video Master-Files like

  • Digital-Film Master-Files
  • Primal Master-Files
  • Blu-ray Disc-IMAGES Master-Files

Portable SSDVD System Components

These SSDVDs™ are all full-function Player-Drives™. "Portable" Player-Drives originate from you SSDVD™ "Archive" Player-Drive™ (above) and "Portable" Player-Drives do everything the "Archive" Player-Drive will do.

"Portable" Player-Drives are much smaller and therefore ONLY store "end-user" video files -- like DVD Disc-Image video and Social-Media video.



"DVD Disc-Image" SSDVD Player-Drive

  • For Movie Film Transfers Clients ONLY.
  • For PC and Mac
  • For distributing and sharing your entire "movie film" collection
  • as DVD Disc-Image files and MP4 video files.



"Social-Media" SSDVD Player-Drive™

  • For Video Tape Transfer Clients ONLY
  • For PC & Mac
  • For distributing and sharing your entire video tape collection

Dirty Little Secret YOU SHOULD KNOW:

Archiving means long term preservation of movie film and video IMAGES -- while also preserving functional use.

No organization does this better than the US National Archives and Records Administration (also called NARA).

  1. NARA oversees the management of ALL federal records; and
  2. NARA "establishes policies and procedures for managing (ALL) FERERAL RECORDS, and ASSISTS (ALL) FEDERAL AGENCIES (like The Library of Congress -- also called LC) in carrying out their records management responsibilities...".

These standards are "The Minimum Standards" for the entire "Archive Industry" -- and NARA offers these standards for the public.

For Example: One month after the Final Report of the famous NIST/Library of Congress Optical Disc Longevity Study,

  • NARA "established policies" on optical discs --
  • BANNING ALL CD/DVD OPTICAL DISCS for "archive purposes" --
  • for 'managing ALL federal records".

This BAN was adopted -- and echoed -- by the Library of Congress(also called LC)-- to this day; and, to this day,

BOTH ARICHVE INSTITUTIONS advise the public, and public archive services, to BAN the use CD/DVD optical disc "for archive purposes".

Why? "The Study" proved optica discs could last upto 45 years (using very special controls)!

Read When Pigs Fly and DVD Longevity Soars! It is a good laugh -- that is on you -- and your pocket book -- if you do NOT read it!

Warning: The NIST/LC Study is used to FRAUDULENTLY to sell optical discs as archive media -- in my opinion!

Decide for yourself -- if NARA and LC -- and I -- have made the right call.

NARA's Archive Guidelines Should Be YOUR ARCHIVE GUIDLINES!

Your home movies are -- "The Times of YOUR LIFE!" -- your Family Archives. They are more important -- to your family -- than than even the National Archives. They deserve no less a level of preservation -- than NARA provides for The National Archives.

Reference: National Archives Newsletter for their Pacific Archive Division

What if ALL MY home movies are already on DVDs? Yikes!

All home movies -- originating from video tape or movie film -- now stored on DVDs -- including "archive gold" type DVD discs -- are Endangered-DVD™ videos.

Most of these DVD are approaching 2 to 5 years old -- which makes ALL video on these DVDs -- Endangered-Video™!

You need to run, not walk, to check your DVD discs -- to see how lucky you may or may not be.

DVD Re-Mastering & Archive Services: We can save your Endangered-DVD™ videos, make them better than the original DVD, and convert them into our Virtual Video Archive™ System.

  • This will allow you to make as many new DVDs as you want, and preserve them -- as DVD Disc-Images -- on your Archive Player-Drives.
  • This will also give you many alternatives other than DVD -- freeing you to new forms of DVD technology (see products above)-- of moving into this decade's video technology.
  • There is so much more you need to know about this subject to protect yourself, your family, and your business.

Our Guarantee of Quality

We we guarantee your video images -- from film or legacy video -- will be Better Than the Original film or legacy video source -- or your money back!

To back that promise, our clients "pay as they approve" their video in their own homes.

Our re-mastering process earns your video the name -- Digital-Film™ -- as each frame is not only better than the original image -- due to post-production color and image enhancements for HDTV -- but because each frame is a Progressive Scan Frame -- a stand-alone-picture -- just like "frames of movie film -- "The best it can be -- for HDTV".

A little Primer on 16mm film, Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) and Super 8mm movie film
1) Identify Standard 8mm movie film or 16mm movie film you have, and
2) Basic "film Transfer speeds" for your film.

The following tutorial on 16mm film, Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film), and Super 8mm movie film -- which will help you both identify and date the
16mm film, Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film), and Super 8mm movie films that you have -- for film transfer.

Picture (Above) shows examples of "small format" movie film s

16mm movie film,
Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) (also called Standard 8mm movie film ) and
Super 8mm movie movie film.

16mm was invented before Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) and Super 8mm movie films. 16mm movie film was made from "hand-milled "Silver halide -- the grains of which were very large compared to later films. Although 16mm is 4 times the size of Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) and Super 8mm movie film, the resolution of the film is comparable to that of Super 8mm movie film and some later dating Also, 16mm movie film was shot and run at 16fps in the early 1900's. Modern versions of 16mm movie film are run at 24 fps -- which actually makes 16mm movie film a "hybrid" format -- with one foot in the "small format film industry" and one foot in the "large format film industry".

It is because of this dual role of 16mm movie film, that 'Film Transfer Mills™ can "get away with" talking about film and equipment in broad terms and then implying that what is "good" for large format films -- like captures with "irregular pull-down patterns" -- is likewise, "good" for "small format films". In truth the converse ONLY is true, that what is "good" for "small format films" -- like synchronizations at "15fps" -- is also "good" for "large format films" -- but NOT VISA VERSA.

Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) and 16mm movie film

Rough Dating of Movie film :
16mm movie film - silent -- 1923 to Early 1960's.
16mm movie film - sound - 1935 to present.
Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film), Standard 8mm movie film -- Late 1932 thru 1990s.
Super 8mm movie film -- Introduced in 1965 to present.

Correct film Transfer Speeds:
Silent 16mm film - silent -15 fps or 16 fps (with exceptions) with 40 frames per foot
Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) film - silent -15 fps or 16 fps. with 80 frames per foot

NOTE: Film Transfer Mills™ transfer this at 20 fps
Introducing a 20% "real-time" distortion - 12 minutes lost per hour.

Super 8mm movie film

Super 8mm movie film was "Shot" usually 18 fps; commercially 24 fps and has 72 frames per foot
Super 8mm movie Movie cameras and projectors had "variable speeds".

Correct film Transfer Speeds:
Super 8mm movie film "Silent", 18 fps
Super 8mm movie film "Sound", 18 fps OR 24 fps.
NOTE: Film Transfer Mills™ transfer this at 20 fps
Introducing a 10% "real-time" distortion - 6 minutes lost per hour.

Super 8 Film Sound for Film Transfer (Click to Refresh Pictures) NOTE: Super 8 Sound film has "magnetic "Sound tracks glued on both edges of the "under-side" of the film which looks like 2 copper colored stripes (see above).

Holes Along the Edge of the film (see picture above) :
The size of the holes are the same for both 16mm movie film and Standard 8mm movie film.
Some 16mm has only one set of holes -- like Regular 8 film.
Spacing of the holes in 16mm movie film is different than Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) -- also called Standard 8 film.

Super 8mm movie movie film has smaller holes - less than half the size of Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) movie film. Spacing is different.
Correct film Transfer is very different for each.

Reels or Spools (see Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) pictures below):

Hole in Center of Reel or Spool:
Early 16mm and Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film): the hole in a spool was
1) the size of a number 2 pencil -- on one side of the spool -- and 2) square and roughly the same size -- on the other side of the spool.

Later, 16mm spools standardized with a square hole.
Later, Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) spools standardized with a round hole -- with a notch on one side of the reel or both.

Super 8mm movie spool: The hole in the spool was the size of your "pinky finger" and round on both sides of the spool.

8mm Film Boxes of "double 8" for <b>8mm film</b> Transfer (Click to Refresh Pictures)

Standard 8mm movie film , 95 percent of the time, is on a grey plastic, 3 inch spool and came in a Yellow cardboard box -- for mailing.

Double 8 movie film came in a yellow box roughly 1 inch thick.
Single 8 also called Standard 8 came in a yellow box roughly 1/2 inch thick.

Both types of films -- collectively -- are called Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) or Standard 8mm movie film and, before 1965, usually fond on little grey plastic reels -- with excepts around 1942 (see history below), and 1965 (more follows)..

Super 8 movie film (introduced in 1965) was sold and processed on 50 foot spools -- which were usually a blue cover with a white plastic spool.. Rarely covers were also red, yellow, green, black, and white.

About that same time (1965), Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) began to appear spooled onto white plastic reels with blue covers, too.. The hole in those spools was the size of a number 2 pencil or standard pen. Most easily confused with Super 8mm movie film.

ATTENTION: : It is very common for Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) to be on a Super 8mm movie spool and Super 8mm movie film, on a Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) spool -- by mistake of family members. When in doubt , look at the film itself and the size of the holes in the film -- not the spool.

HISTORICAL NOTE - TO HELP DATE AND IDENTIFY: Earliest Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) or Standard 8 film was called Double 8, because it was sold as 25 feet of 16mm movie film. It was called a "25 foot Double 8".

The tell-tell oversized, yellow box contained a tiny back metal canister -- sealed with black cotton tape -- to protect the brown, unexposed 16mm movie film inside.

The 16mm movie film was "double exposed" -- in 2 passes. Each pass -- exposing the entire length of the 16mm wide film -- but only exposed an Standard 8mm movie film wide strip along the length of the16mm movie film.

The cameraman would shoot one pass and then flip the 16mm movie film in the camera -- to shoot the second pass. This accounts for the "flashes of yellow light" half-way through early Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film)s.

At the time of film processing, the 16mm movie film was developed and then split down the center -- thus creating 2 strips of Standard 8mm movie film. . The two ends of the (now Standard 8mm movie ) film was glued together in the center and spooled onto a 50 foot spool of Standard 8mm movie film (shown below). This is nice to know if you need to date reels of film.

1) (left top) aluminum or black metal reel (not shown) (pre-WWII), or
2)(center bottom) a cardboard reel (WWII), or
3) (right top) a grey plastic reel (post-WWII)

The Double 8: Standard 8mm movie film reel of film was shipped back to owner in the same oversize yellow box -- now twice the length and half the width of the original 15 foot reel of 16mm movie film.

NOTE: Many times the cameraman would forget that the film had already been exposed and flipped -- and would expose the same edge twice. Thus "double exposures" were created on Double 8 film.

TECHNICAL NOTES (VERY BORING)
ON MOVIE film TRANSFER SYNTAX AND SEMANTICS:

The " tech note" below is on film transfer semantics on 16mm film, Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film), and Super 8mm movie film. Most readers have some "flavor" of Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) or Super 8mm movie film. Therefore, I do not specifically state the words "16mm movie film " -- every time I mention Super 8mm movie film or Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) -- when talking about film transfers to DVD or Master Files. Instead, I just talk about Regular 8, and Super 8mm movie film to video film transfers -- with the ASSUMPTION THAT ALL PRINCIPLES APPLY TO 16mm movie film AS WELL.

The same applies to visual and non-visual illustrations -- using Standard 8mm movie film or Super 8mm movie film or film transfer. Illustrations about Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) ALSO APPLIES to SILENT 16mm movie film -- as Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) -- (see photos above) in may cases IS SILENT 16mm movie film -- "SPLIT IN HALF -- DOWN THE CENTER" literally.

A 16mm movie film transfer can be much more complex than a Standard 8mm movie film or Super 8mm movie film transfer -- because 16mm movie film was used domestically, commercially -- as 16mm silent and 16mm sound -- and shot at 1 of 3 speeds -- even early century 1900s. Also 16mm movie film is OLDER and usually is in some stage of "vinegar syndrome". After you get a film transfer quote, you are advised to call me about your 16mm movie film for a free 16mm movie film transfer "evaluation and consult".

I use Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film) or Super 8mm movie terms -- for example:

Super 8mm movie film to DVD,
Super 8mm movie film transfer,
Standard 8mm movie film to H.264,
Super 8mm movie film transfer,
Single Standard 8mm movie film to HDTV Blu-ray,

film to Flash Drive,
film to Hard Drive,

ALL these film transfer phrases refer to some "film to video film transfer process" of converting film to digital video unless otherwise stated specifically..

Even though my film transfer terminology may be specific to a stated gauge of film -- Standard 8mm movie film (Regular 8mm movie film), Super 8mm movie film, or 16mm movie film -- you may expand any reference to any gauge of film into a generalized concept that can be applied to all small film formats -- and film transfers -- UNLESS OTHERWISE STATE D
