The DVStreamer family of products  provides basic functionality to save and restore files to/from digital video tape using DV or Digital8 video recorders connected to a PC through an IEEE1394 (Firewire) interface.

The recorded data, protected by an error detection and correction scheme, is inserted/extracted in the video stream transmitted/received to/from the VCR. For DVStreamerBasic and DVStreamerPRO 2.x Releases, the storage capacity is 8.7 GB on a one hour tape running at normal speed, and 13.1 GB using the LP mode, which gives normally quite good results. In the unprotected mode (available through the "More options" form), the capacity is 10GB at normal speed, and 15GB in LP mode.

DVStreamer products support NTSC and PAL video formats. NTSC is used in North-America, PAL in the rest of the world. There is a specific executable for each version. The two versions cannot be installed at the same time on any given PC as this would cause resources conflicts.

Our products are "on-line" products which directly read the data files and insert (or extract) them in a live video stream sent to (received from) the camcorder.

  • Windows98SE, ME, 2000, XP and 2003 Server support

  • Specific versions support NTSC or PAL standards

  • Save or restore multiple data files in one recording session.  
  • No file size limit (only limit is the tape length available and operating system limits i.e. 4GB for Windows98 FAT32)
  • Data is protected by error detection and correction scheme.
