How We Do It
digital tapes are output from our Sony DSR2000 professional
decks through the SDI connections directly into our
DSR2000 DVCAM editing recorder is designed with exceptional
editing capabilities, multi-format playback compatibilities
and professional high-quality images. Since these decks allow
us to output SDI we don't need to do any analog to digital
conversions keeping your video in its native format.
MPX3000 is Spruce's real-time encoder for MPEG-2 and MPEG-1
video encoding, and AC-3 Dolby Digital 2 channel audio encoding.
Since the encoder is real-time there is no need to first encode
the audio and video into an AVI or QuickTime file and then
transcode that file into a DVD compliant MPEG2 and AC3 file.
Many cheaper encoders first encode the video into one of the
above formats and then convert the file to a DVD compliant
Than The Competition
others don't compress the audio into an AC3 file leaving it
as a PCM audio file which is much larger than digital AC3
file. This requires you to lower the bit rate and quality
of the video file to fit both the MPEG2 video and the PCM
audio onto the DVD. The real-time encoder not only saves time,
but it allows us to create higher quality DVDs. As the audio
and video are sent to the computer the MPX3000 encoder compresses
the audio and video directly into into DVD compliant files.
have designed our own encoding program based on the Spruce
Technologies SASI engine to control all aspects of the encoding
process. The computer tells the deck when they should begin
to play and when to stop the video tape. The computers also
automatically adjust the bit rate for your video based on
the length of your movie. This allows us to provide you with
the highest quality available.
