What formats can I use in the lab?


We can import audio/video to our workstations from the following sources:

  • DVD (multi-region)
  • miniDV
  • Video CD (VCD)
  • Audio CD
  • Audio Cassette
  • Vinyl record (33 1/3 or 45 rpm only)
  • Existing video files (mpg, mpeg, avi, mov)
  • Existing audio files (mp3, AAC, WAV, AIFF, Ogg Vorbis)

We do NOT have equipment in the lab to import:

  • 8-Track tapes
  • 78rpm vinyl records
  • Betamax
  • D8 (Hi-8, etc) tapes
  • DVCPro
  • Flash videos like those from YouTube, Google Video, etc.
  • Full-sized DV tapes or DVCam tapes
  • Super-8 tapes
  • VHS-C

If you bring your own camera or video/video deck that has an S-Video or RCA output, we can most likely patch it into our system and allow you to import your video to edit.

If you do not see a format specifically mentioned above, please ask us.
