    How to convert HD movie from DV tapes from camera

    I had one party and the camera man just recorded all the videos on mini DV tapes. Now he promised me that he will give me HD 16:9 1080p DVD for videos

    But i am confused how he will convert tapes to HD. Aren't he has to use HD cameras for that not tapes. or he is lying to me

    Is it possible
    Please de-reputate me

    Some HD cameras use tape, some use SD or some other form of solid state but you can record 1080p on DV tape.

    No he is not lying,

    there are many formats within miniDV tapes that allow for HD recording.

    the HDV format is one such format, it is mpeg2 datastream.

    However, if he gives you a DVD, it would have to be a "data DVD" and not playable in a DVD player. Unless your DVD player supports additional codecs such as mpeg4.

    I hope that helps.

    Usually you have to import the data via IEEE1394 (FireWire).

    This is then encoded into mpeg2 and then finally "authored" to DVD.
