Our Clients Say...

We began using 5 Star Media a few years ago after having a few poorly taped (and overpriced)  videos done by other providers. 5 Star Media went above and beyond our expectations - great quality, timely production, and best of all a competitive price.

Hi 5 Star Media,

Thank you for doing those videos for me.
They are so precious.
It was exactly what I wanted. When I go over my other VHS ones I may have a couple more for you to do. Thanks a million.

Videocapture is the process of converting an analog video signal—such as that produced by a video camera or DVD player—to digital form. The resulting digital data are referred to as a digital video stream, or more often, simply video stream. This is in contrast with screen casting, in which previously digitized video is captured while displayed on a digital monitor.

Process

The video capture process involves several processing steps. First the analog video signal is digitized by an analog-to-digital converter to produce a raw, digital data stream. In the case of composite video, the luminance and chrominance are then separated; this is not necessary for S-Video sources. Next, the chrominance is demodulated to produce color difference video data. At this point, the data may be modified so as to adjust brightness, contrast, saturation and hue. Finally, the data is transformed by a color space converter to generate data in conformance with any of several color space standards, such as RGB and YCbCr. Together, these steps constituted video decoding, because they "decode" an analog video format such as NTSC or PAL.

Special electronic circuitry is required to capture video from analog video sources. At the system level this function is typically performed by a dedicated video capture card. Such cards often utilize video decoder integrated circuits to implement the video decoding process.
