Clients benefit from skilled technicians capable of accommodating almost any technical need on the fly.

Quality editors can be provided to fit the specific need of the project. Be it straight cutting or graphic/effect intensive work, we have long list of trusted editors covering a vast range of experience. In addition, our extensive resources make it possible to assemble a wide variety of professionals such as camera operators, producers and other crew, for video shoots and production teams. Our clients have come to count on us for our service in handling projects that include TV commercials, corporate videos, web video content, music videos and feature films.



Aside from being a full blown editing facility, Miller Video & Film can also offer an endless array of format conversions, tape or digital. All equipment we use meets broadcast standards and includes HDCAM, Digital Beta cam, Beta SP, DVCAM, DVCProHD among others. Have a tape and you can't play it or don't know what it is? Just ask... chances are we can handle it and get it into a format you can use.

One of our most sought after services is our high quality standards conversion for NTSC projects with content headed overseas and for conforming tapes in PAL format to your NTSC project. Our Snell and Wilcox Alchemist provides the highest quality standard conversion possible using it's sophisticated Ph.C., or Phase Correlation motion compensation algorithm and it's patented CleanCuts technology.

We also handle digital formats such as QuickTime. Files can be easily transferred to tape or compressed to other formats such as Windows Media, RealNetworks streams, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, the HD capable H264 among many others. Need your video streaming on your website? We can create a version of your video that's optimized for the web and it's end user. Showing your video at a meeting or convention kiosk? We can help you get your video into a format that your laptop or PowerPoint presentation can handle without choking.

All transfers are done by trained techs who monitor your materials using broadcast quality waveform vectorscopes and color critical monitors. If there are illegal color, black or luma levels, we can correct them using high quality proc-amps. Our Alchemist includes color balance controls and vertical and horizontal enhancement features to help improve overall picture quality and sharpness on troublesome projects. Wherever possible, transfers are processed in the digital domain in order to maintain maximum quality. We can also provide high quality time base correction for older VHS and 3/4 tapes as well as other "funky" or antiquated formats.

Where many video production houses often neglect the audio aspect of client materials, Miller Video & Film takes care to optimize your audio for the analog and digital realm. We measure and meter every aspect of the signal chain in order to make sure no tape goes out over-modulated or distorted. We can also offer audio compression for program that may be too dynamic(i.e. really loud and then really quiet) using or TC Electronics Finalizer. This affectively decreases dynamic levels so you can print levels "hotter" to tape without worry of distortion. The process also improves the perceived volume of quieter passages. A rule of thumb for your production, should it be for broadcast, is to print audio to peak around 0vu(+2 or +3db for transient audio) for analog and do your best to keep it from going over -10 for digital. This helps to ensure that your tapes transfer optimally back and forth between the analog and digital domain. It's a common mistake to print all the way up to zero on a digital beta tape because, typically, your bars are set to -20 and this causes a 20db range between what's considered nominal gain and peak gain. Any analog source you record to using your bars as a reference, WILL DISTORT. Any broadcaster that doesn't have the luxury of checking bars to program is going to be irritated, to say the least. Printing audio to digital tape at such a hot level is not necessary because the noise floor of digital tape is much lower than analog tape and the extra signal to noise ratio is hardly worth the trouble it causes in the long run.


DVD

In combination with MPEG-2 compression, Miller Video & Film also offers DVD authoring. We can build your DVD from tape or QuickTime files and create menus using your graphics or graphics we create. Once your master is created, we can duplicate significant quantities using our DVD duplication towers. We provide all this and full-color printing on disc.

We also provide a real-time DVD alternative which uses our Pioneer PRV-LX1 DVD recorder. This is a great lower cost solution for one-off DVDs or DVDs not requiring menus and it doesn't sacrifice image quality.



Need to layoff your show to Digi-Beta? We can it bring right to your front door... and if you'll invite us in, we'll set it up for you as well.
