What We Do For You:

We work with 3 types of moving images:

  1. Movie Film Images: 8mm, Super8, and 16mm -- both sound and silent.
  2. Video Images -- Originaly shot on Movie Film, later "transferred" to Video
  3. Video Images -- Orginaly shot on Video Cameras (Analogue and Digital)

We can ReMaster ™ each of the three types of moving images "better than the original" -- or you pay nothing. Read How Video Can Be Better Than The Original below.

As a Computer Scientist and Master Photographer, I have ReMastered ™ some of the great movie films of last century. Read World Class Film and Video ReMastering ™ below.

My Digital Image Archive Guidlines are adapted from National Archives and Records Administrations (NARA) and by The Library of Congress (TLC). I haveI exceed NARA and TLC guidelines by the use of Virtual Video file technology and Logical/Virtual Drive technology.

As you will see, I provide much more than a "video conversion" service, giving my clients the highest video quality and preservation -- money can buy.

We specialize in two types of moving images:

  1. Images that orginate from movie film cameras
  2. Images that originate from video cameras.

-- which includes virtualization of Movie Films in 8mm and 16mm formats.

We ReMaster ™ your old legacy video media -- using " Video Liberation ™ " Technology -- which is far superior to last century's " Video Capture " technolgy. "

I am so confident that our Video Liberation ™ and ReMastering ™ services are "better" than the original video (that you send me), that I insist that ALL our clients

  1. Compare their video -- BEFORE enhancements
  2. To their video -- AFTER enhancements --
  3. BEFORE THEY PAY -- for our ReMastering video services.
  4. Clients who do NOT see a difference, DO NOT PAY for enhancement services!

I can say this, and I do this -- because I want to "earn your business" -- not "get it".

"Video Capture" companies -- using LAST CENTURY technology -- do NOT offer side by side -- "BEFORE and AFTER Comparison Viewing -- to prove what they promised -- much less insist upon it -- before payment!

This is one of many things...

We do it; and they don't.



Liberated ™ Video -- is NTSC interlace video that is ReEngineered ™ -- one video frame at a time -- full-frame, full-resolution -- as modern Full Frame Progressive Scan Video.

After Color Enhnacement, the ReMastered video is visably " better " -- sometimes profoundly better -- than the original video.

If you have any video on digital tape or DVD disc -- if you demand the best money can buy -- at any price -- you definetly want me to ReMaster ™ it!

The primary product of our Liberated ™ ReMasted ™ video, is a "Full Frame, Full Resolution" Progressive Scan Digital Master File -- which is Universally Compatible with both Mac and PC computers.

ReMastered ™ Liberated ™ Video is then RENDERED (not RIPPED) into many secondary video products -- rendered as Partial Frame Progressive Video -- all of which are superior to the original video.

Your HDTV or UHDTV will love it!

You will love streaming it -- and sharing it -- anywhere, anytime, with anyone -- on any device -- using virtually any major Internet browser -- using your www.FlixR.us password .

Yes, we do it; they don't.

Examples of secondary HD Optical Disc products are Dual-Pass Rendered

NOTE: According to the National Arcives and Records Admnistration (NARA) Recordable DVD and Blu-ray discs are NOT "archive worthy" media for long term storage of video images.

Examples of Disc-IMAGE products:

  1. DVD Disc-IMAGE files
  2. Blu-ray Disc-IMAGE files

Yes, we do it'; they don't!

Examples of Streaming Video WiFi products are

We offer Extended Memory Video card adaptors for iOS and OTG devices

We offer SSD and Hard Drive Libraries -- as"Virtual Drives" -- compatible with both Mac and PC

  1. Movies N-a-Flash Drives
  2. Video Archive Drives

Yes, we do it; they don't!


Capture " Video -- also called "Rip and Capture" -- is, shamefully, still used by most Movie Film Transfer and Video Tape Conversion companies today.

The primary video product of " Rip and Capture " -- is a DVD disc -- which is inferior to the original video -- because the DVD is a " ripped " in a " single-pass " -- as the vidoe (tape) is played, in " real-time " . Video "ripped" to DVD is the LOWEST quality video the DVD video standard will support.

DVD discs are imfamously fulll of digital errors and block errors -- which polute any video " ripped " from the DVD - because DVD recorders were never standardized.

Because of "recording errors", video "master" files " -- made from recordable DVD discs -- are inferior to

  1. the "ripped" video on the DVD and
  2. the "orginal" video on the originating video tape.

Yes, "digital generation loss" is very real .

As for the "logevity of a DVD disc...

Any "dye based" DVD disc is 'unstable" -- accoring to the National Archives (NARA). Once activated , the "dye" in a recordable DVD disc continues to degrade.

are burned on non-standardized DVD recorders -- which are NOT certified for "archive recording". The "data longevity" of these discs is implied -- by words like "gold" and "archive" on the packaging; however "data longevity" is NOT warratied in any writing -- by disc manufactures nor by "video archive" companies. Longevity claims refer to "shelf life" of the disc -- to the "data life" of your video.





  1. ReEngineering ™ VIDEO -- ORIGINALLY FROM VIDEO TAPE includes
    • RGB Color Enhancement and Restoration
    • RGB Color Smear Reduction
    • Converting old Interlaced Video into modern Progressive Scan Video .

  2. ReEngineering VIDEO -- ORIGINALLY FROM MOVIE FILM includes

We are the only company in the US that offers Post-production Enhancement Services for Digital Video made ("captured" or " transferred") from Movie Flilm.

NOTE: There are limits to what we can offer when working with VHS tape that is NOT a "professional copy" -- like a homemade "copy of a copy".


BEFORE and AFTER Comparative Viewing

For a difference you can see, we show you

  1. BEFORE video improvement images and
  2. AFTER video improvement images
  3. on your smart phone or computer
  4. Using Flix R dot Us at www.FlixR.us -- our video distribution website.

Note: You may share your www.FlixR.us link and password -- with friends and family -- intitially as H.264/MP4 " smart phone " proxy video.

YOU Pay -- As YOU Approve:

  1. We ReMaster your project in " econmical qunatities " -- roughly 1 or 2 hours at at time.
  2. You pay for each segment -- ONLY after you veiw and approve each segment via www.FlixR.us .

YOU Are In Control:

  1. You may stop your project -- at any time -- for any reason.
  2. If you disapprove a production segment of your video, and we can not remedy the problem
  3. you pay nothing for that segment and your project is halted.

Other Video Products You Receive:

  1. After final payment -- for ReMastering ALL segments of your projects,
  2. we create secondary video products from your "Approved" ReMasterd Files.
  3. Liberated ™ Secondary Products Include:
    1. A www.FlixR.us webpage subscription -- for Internet viewing and downloading
      1. includes 1080p video -- for HD Internet steaming; and,
      2. includes 300p video -- for smart phone streaming.
    2. Liberated ™ Disc-IMAGE files -- to make your own optical discs include
      1. DVD Disc-IMAGE files and
      2. Blu-ray Disc-Image files (if discs are ordered).
  4. Traditional Optical Disc Products Include:
    1. Physical DVD discs (from DVD Disc-IMAGE files) and
    2. M-Disc DVD Discs -- if ordered (from DVD Disc-IMAGE files).
    3. Physical Blu-ray Discs -- if ordered (from Blu-ray Disc-IMAGE files) and
  5. Mass Storage Drvie Products
    1. Comprehensive Library Archive Drive (all video files) and
    2. Movies N-a-Flash ™ Drive (MP4 and DVD Disc_IMAGE files only)

IMPORTANT NOTES: Optical Discs

DVD Disc-Image Flles:

If you do NOT order physical DVD disc -- YOU STILL GET -- DVD Disc-Image files -- ANYWAY.

We have invented a new DVD Flash Drive technology -- that allows you to play DVD Disc_IMAGE files from a flash drive.

Instead of giving family members physical DVD discs, you can optionally give them a Movie N-a-Flash ™ Drive that contains ALL videos as MP4 files AND as DVD Disc-IMAGE files. Yes, they can even " burn " their own DVD discs, if they want to, using our On-Board Tutorial. A computer with a DVD burner is required.

Also, down the road, many people find they want to make (burn) physical DVD-R discs -- or even physical M-Discs DVD discs -- for themselves or for someone else.

Making an M-Disc is a priceless option -- we want to give you and your family -- especially if you feel a real threat exist from

  1. an EMP Nuclear Attack or
  2. a CME Solar Event.

Finally, many Mac and PC computer apps play DVD Disc-IMAGE files

  1. either as ISO files
  2. or as Video_TS files.

We DO provide you with a media player app that plays DVD disc-IMAGE files -- on all your drives.

Blu-ray Disc-Image Files:

If you do NOT order at least one set of Physical Blu-Ray discs, we do NOT make Blu-ray Disc-IMAGE files. Many computers can NOT play Blu-ray Disc-Image files -- unless you add / buy specialty software and specially hardware.

Also, you MUST have a Blu-ray Disc burner -- to make physical Blu-ray Discs. To make M-Disc Blu-rays, you must have an M-Disc certified / enabled Blu-ray Burner Drive.

Optical Disc Technology " Death " Shift:

Last but not least, all optical discs are in the final stages of a technology " death " shift -- in favor of Internet Streaming video. We all saw this type technology shift -- with " mucic CD discs " -- and now we are seeing it with Movie DVD discs. As all DVD--R discs and M-Discs are tied to the Movie DVD disc player industry, the market life of ALL optical discs is smoltering.

Most new computers do NOT even include optical discs drives any more. DVD disc drives are now a " special order " -- as an external USB optical drive.

For these reasons, we now provide Internet Streaming subscription service -- www.FlixR.us -- available to all your friends and family -- for private, password protected Internet streaming -- and video downloading.


Flix R dot Us at www.FlixR.us

World Class Video Preservation ™

We follow modern video preservation standards recommended by

  1. The National Archves and Records Administration (NARA) and
  2. The Library of Congress (TLC)

We disclaim DVD discs as being " archive worthy " media; which violates NARA and TLC guidelines. Instead we give you " virgin " DVD Disc-IMAGES -- rendered from your ReMastered " master files " -- to make and refresh your own DVD discs -- as often and as long -- as you wish to use DVD discs.

We never " rip " and " capture " video -- from master files -- onto a DVD disc -- bypassing the dual-pass rendering process (more later).


You Now Have A Choice

" Liberated " Video Files: 2020's Technology

  1. Universal Compatibility with all computers and all storage devices; and,
  2. The " new video formats " of decade 2020 -- and into the foreseeable future; and,
  3. The " new standard " for long term video preservation strategies -- recommended by NARA.

" Captured " Video: 1960's Technology

Captured video -- stalled around 1960. Captired video is NTSC video that has been bound -- or imprissoned -- in a specific medium - like a DVD disc or VHS video tape.

In the past, the only way to " re-create " the video is to " rip " the video off the medium -- which results in profound loss of image detail -- and

And yes, I can prove -- using data from a Library of Congress Optical Disc Longevity study -- that " copying " one optical disc -- to another optical disc -- especially DVD discs -- creates (results in) an inferior " digital product " -- with more digital artifacts in the " new " disc -- than the original (old) DVD disc (being copied). The " new " disc is actually " more aged " -- due to new digital errors -- than the " old " , original DVD.

Bottom Line:

Video is still being " captured " by most companies -- whether using " telecine manchines " or " tape to disc " copy decks.

" Captured video " is the very reason you are reading these words now -- because you recongnize

  1. your video will be lost WHEN
  2. your VIDEO MEDIA goes bad or becomes obsolete.

In layman's terms, you have a big problem -- because

  1. your priceless video is " imprissoned " or " captured " by
  2. your video tape or video disc or movie film; and,
  3. When your tape or disc movie film goes " bye bye " --
  4. so goes your images -- forever!

UPDATE: Obsolete video " container files " , like AIV-1 and AVI-2 files -- is a very serieous " capture " issue, too! Also, many " modern " video FILE formats -- of last decade -- are in a Technology " Death " Shift -- this decade! Add to that, many " professional " video file formats -- NOT in 16:9 format -- are endangered species.

THE VIDEO WORLD -- IS A DANGEROUS WORLD!

Your friendly neighborhood drug store -- or " big box " store -- " ripping " and " stripping " your video -- to DVD discs -- will be the death of your video.

The absolute worst thing you can do -- in 2019 -- is RE-CAPTURE your video -- or movie film images -- usinging last century technology!

Instead, Liberate ™ YOUR Video -- For EVER! ™


1960's Technology: Video " Capture "

The following are " keywords " you will see on the websites of outdated studios.

The Common Thread:

" Rip and Capture " technologies create video -- inferior to the original images.


" Rip and Capture " technologies " imprison " video -- onto physical media -- which is tied to proprietary " player " technology -- and creates cross-plateform " generation loss " .


" Rip and Capture " technologies re-create " interlaced " video -- with " blended frame " degregation. They do NOT re-engineer video as Dual-Pass Progressive Scan video -- with descrete " predictive frame " enhancements.

Bottom Line:

These companies can NOT offer BEFORE and AFTER video comparisions; thus,

They can NOT offer " money back gurantees " -- if video is not BETTER than the Original Video.

 

BUT DON'T BLAME THESE COMPANIES!!!!!

Uneducated people...

Uneducated people do NOT know who NARA is -- much less know that NARA banned the use of recordable DVD discs -- for archive purporse -- way back in 2007!

Uneducated people do NOT know that " big business " and " small business " ignored NARA guidelines -- due to PUBLIC DEMAND -- and have created the largest, unparalleled loss of video and photo data -- since the invention of all photo image technology combined.

Most people never use their DVD player any more, much less know if it even still works. Most people not only do NOT ihave a DVD player connected to their TV sets, but would be hard pressed to tell you where the have it stored -- if they even know if they stll have it!

Why would any of these people have their priceless home videos " captured " to DVD discs!

This website educates and alerts people -- they now have a choice!


Liberated ™ Video -- " Liberated " Video

Liberated Video is NOT the digital video of your old grand fathered PC--- like obsolete Windows AVI files.

We are not talking about video of last decade, but the new video evolving this decade -- which is sure to be the standard of the 2020 decade..

Liberated Video is the Video of

* What We Do For You

What We Do For You:

We Digitally ReMaster ™ 3 Types of Moving Images

  1. Video Images -- NEVER on MOVIE FILM
  2. Video Images -- PREVIOUSLY from Movie Film
  3. Movie Film Images -- STILL on MOVIE FILM

We offer 3 types of services to make these 3 types of moving images look better than your original --
Or your money back!

How can we prove our work is better?

We create BEFORE and AFTER video images -- for you to decide -- for you to see -- the difference we make -- between

  1. what your send us and
  2. what we send you.

We call this call our 20/20 ™ Service-- which we explain below.

Video Images -- PREVIOUSLY from Movie Film:

We offer a world class service in ReMastering ™ movie film images -- which are NOW on

  1. video tape,
  2. digital tape,
  3. optical DVD or Blu-ray disc, or
  4. stored as ANY video file.

These video images -- PREVIOUSLY from Movie Film -- were " film transfered " -- or " telecine scanned " -- by other studios.

Our former clients get excellent results from digital video -- PREVIOUSLY from Movie Film -- transfered to MiniDV tapes -- which have been excellent archive mediums since 1999.

Because of our past accomplishments and state-of-the-art technologies, we can ReMaster " video -- PREVIOUSLY from Movie Film -- better than the original video,

Video Of Inferior Quality (in our opinion):

YesVideo, Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Costco and " like " services are not in our league of video quality -- on many levels -- most especially in Post-production Services; however, many of our clients send us DVD discs made by these companies -- to ReMaster ™ and Liberate ™ .

Our 20/20 BEFORE and AFTER comparisons leaves no doubt of our superior quality.

Once we saw the dramatic difference we could make in low grade digital video -- and how much people seemed to appreciate the difference -- we were convinced to accept the low grade video.

NOTE: Many readers are shocked to learn that the National Archives(NARA) banned the use of DVD discs for archive purposes -- starting in October, 2007 -- an have sustained that decission. The only exception has been M-Disc silicon technology

Readers who want to save their video -- from their old DVD discs-- before the DVD disc goes bad -- should run -- not walk -- to their recordable DVD-R discs -- made by these companies -- to confirm that they can still play their DVDs from beginning to the end. Then they should rush them to us -- to salvage thier high risk video on DVD discs.


Video Images -- NEVER on Movie Film

We routinely " salvage " video -- on DVD disc -- made by these companies; and we make their video better. We prove it is better -- with BEFORE and AFTER video -- which is proof of our better quality -- or your money back!


Movie Film and Video FROM Movie Film:

We restore the motion and color distorted images -- caused by Telecine Scanners -- when movie film was " captured " to video -- using out dated " film transfer " technology of last century.


Relative to ALL Video and Movie Film Images:

Audio Media:


We Work With VHS, VHS-C, and S-VHS, However,

We can not offer a Money Back Warranty for VHS, VHS-C, S-VHS tapes. These last century tapes are considered " video salvage " and ANY images salvaged from these tapes should be considered as " resurrected " from the dead.

Reasons are MOST VHS tapes are copies of other multiple copies or because they were re-recorded in VHS LP (Long Play) mode -- which destroyed the quality of the old analogue images. These tapes are full of snow and streaks and color artifacts.

Another reason is many VHS tape have been " eaten " -- and damaged -- by a VHS tape recorder -- before we ever receive them. This is because most VHS recorders have fallen into disrepair -- with bad " pinch rollers " , broken " rubber belts " , and " worn-out feeder / ejector trays.

The ferric oxide and adhesives on many of these tapes are now breaking down. In some cases the ferric oxide is sluffing off of their polymer backing; and, in other cases the adhesives are bleeding through the ferric oxide, causing the tape to stick to itself -- within the tape winding.

Nonetheless, we have been very successful in restoring most VHS tapes -- " better than the original " .

What You DON'T Know about DVD Discs WILL HURT YOU

If you think your video on DVD is permanent, THINK AGAIN!

There is a huge difference between

  1. Commercially Pressed Movie DVD discs -- mass produced by the millions -- and
  2. Recordable DVD discs - used for small quantity videos -- for businesses and individuals.

The first is permanent; the second is very temporary!

PROOF:

In October 2007, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) banned the use of recordable DVD discs -- for archive purposes -- in all Federal agencies. This decision was never reascended -- with good reason.

Download it and read it for yourself -- then send it to people you care about.

National Archives Newsletter:_Pacific_Currents_October_2007_Vol_1.pdf.zip

DVD failure is not the fault of recordable DVD discs. The fault is the DVD Recorder Industry -- was never standardized!

The Final Report of the NIST / Library of Congress Optical Disc Longevity Study revealed that because all DVD RECORDERS are non-standardized, many DVDs burned are on the brink of failure -- before they even stop spinning -- in the DVD RECORDER!

NARA recently placed the data life of some DVD recordings -- at LESS THAN A YEAR!

Much more on this later - and in the Site Map below (See How Pigs Fly and DVD Longevity Soars!) .

What is Liberated Video™?

Eniee Edit:

Before you get covered in Geek Speak ™ , here's the bottom line:

Captured ™ Video is " soooo last century! "
Liberated ™ Video is happening now!

" Liberate " your video; Don't " Capture " it!

(End Einee Edit: ...back to the Geek Speak!)



Video ReMastering ™ and Liberation ™

You are about to lean what Video ReMastering ™ and Liberation ™ are all about and why they are so important to you, your company or family.

Old video " capture " technologies " lock your video-- and you -- into old, dying technology. This limits you -- and your use of your video. " Captured Video " also places a death sentence on your video -- with expiration dates that come at you like stars at warp speed (see Star Wars and Star Trek). The National Archives(NARA) now warns that some DVD discs can last LESS than 1 year!

Examples of " capture video " are digital video tapes, video discs, and video files.

Don't panic...

YES, we still make M-disc, DVD disc, and Blu-ray discs; but...

OPTICAL DISCS
(AND VINYL RECORDS)
ARE " REALLY, SOOO LAST CENTURY " !

REALITY CHECK:

Part of our business is -- Liberating ™ Video -- from optical discs and digital tapes!

Yes, in 2018, many " digital videos " -- tapes, discs, and video file formats -- are now obsolete.

For Example:Old AVI video files (more later)

Don't Worry; Be Happy!

As a Computer Scientist and Video Archivist, Einstein and I can guide you through the waste land of dead and dying

We are not going to rip-out your DVD/Blu-ray player; but ...

We will prepare you for the new 2020 decade -- with our 20/20 ™ Video Services (pun intended).


Modern Video is Liberated ™ Video -- NOT " captured " video

Liberated Video is YOUR video -- ReEngineered ™ as many types of strategically selected " free state " video files.

In a word, your video is Liberated ™ -- " DIVERSIFIED " .

We create

We warn you about being " captive " by

that that might thwart your goals for a really " future compatible " mix for your video archive.

Liberated ™ Video is Unverally Compatible -- Meaning...

Liberated ™ Video plays on

Liberated ™ Video can be stored on

Liberated Video really can survive

" CAPTURED " VIDEO CAN'T DO ANY OF THE ABOVE!

Still want ONLY a DVD -- for about the same price -- as all the above!


What IS " Captured " Video?

Captured Video is any video that permanently " imprisoned "

  1. by a physical medium AND
  2. by a physical medium player.

If you have ever lost video

then you know how the life of video -- is tied to the physical death of MEDIA and/or the MEDIA PLAYER.

Other " captures " are not so obvious like

Neither of these format would be " a good idea " to " pass on to the next generation " -- unless you make special equipment arrangements -- and provide education -- for their use. As you can see, these special constraints create a " captive " user and " captive " video.

Last, but Not Least, there are Technology DEATH Shifts!

This is probably the reason your are reading my website. When technology changes -- whole industries disappear -- seemingly -- over night!

We laugh about the old guy who suddenly wakes up and realizes he can not get his VHS video player fixed -- and now all his VHS tapes are useless!

BUT, don't laugh too hard -- or too long; do you realize the same thing is NOW HAPPENING with DVD discs?!

Video on demand via the Internet -- like Netflix, Amazon Fire -- have been eroding the DVD market for years now, but hold on to your hat!

JUST THIS PAST YEAR -- YouTube -- started killing both cable and satellite markets!

The big NEWS is THE NEWS! That is to say, subscription News -- like Fox Cable News and " like " programing -- is FREE -- on YouTube. FREE NEWS is the reason many people are now dumping Dish TV, Time Warner, Cox TV, etc.

In fact, there is very little broadcast video feed, once it is broadcasted, that does not find a home on YouTube!

This is a MAJOR technology DEATH shift!

So -- say good bye to any video -- " captured " to " Soo, really last century " -- physical media.


Any video medium you own is " captured video " .

For Example:

8mm Analogue Video Tape:

VHS Analogue Video Tape (half inch)

Digital Video Tape:

Optical Discs:

Obsolete or Proprietary Video Files

Yes, video files -- THAT ARE NOT UNIVERSALLY Liberated -- can imprison video. If you own any of the video files above -- and find them hard -- if not impossible -- to use, then you know what I mean.


Captured Video ™ -- is imprisoned video.

The life of " captured video " is directly

Many video files (and video media) are bound to (captured to) a brand of computer or to a brand of video player or to a brand of software. Apple owners know this fact well-- and so do PC owners.

Examples of captured video:

DVD discs, Blu-ray discs, all tapes, many out-dated Liberated files -- like AVI;
all proprietary files -- like Apple ProRes, and all native video files -- without digital wrappers.


technology DEATH shifts are the greatest " killer " of " captured video " .

technology DEATH shifts takes place when an entire Industry disappears OR changes everything!

For example, last decade...

  1. the Video Tape Industry disappeared;
  2. the CD Music Industry has disappeared,
  3. Mac and PC computers " changed everything " video
  4. NOW the DVD disc Industry is DISAPEARING.

Even if you OWN a perfectly good video medium, it is " dead " to you -- if you have no way to " play it " . If you own a tape deck that eats tapes; or if your disc player skips or gets stuck; or if you have an old Windows XP machine or Mac G4 or G5 -- then you know what I mean.

Einee Edit: Getting kind of depressing here... THINK FUN THOUGHTS -- like chasing C-A-T-S!
DD: OK, Einstein, I'll discuss the bliss of Liberated Video ™ ...


Liberated Video ™ -- is free state (i.e., liberated) digital video -- with the potential to live Liberated For EVER! ™ . The video is self-contained -- with no need for any one physical medium. It is cheap and easy to duplicate -- thousands of times -- or more!. After that, each of those thousand or more video files, has the potential to be duplicated -- another thousands times -- or more! On and on forever!

Universally Digitally Compatible and Universally Digitally Transportable " digital container " .

The antonym (i.e., opposite) of a " free Liberated state " is a " captured physical state " .

The life of the Liberated Video ™ is NOT imprisoned by the death sentence (damage or technology DEATH shift) of any one video medium.


Einee: Geek Speak Edit:

Example:

Think of Liberated ™ Video -- as you -- free to travel -- Liberated anywhere, Liberated anyway -- in a car or in a pickup truck, or in a helicopter, or in a plane or in a boat, etc.

In stark contrast, think of " Captured Video " -- as you -- in prison -- for life -- on death row. (The END)

 

End Einee Edit (your welcomed!)


Video Liberation ™ :

Liberation ™ is a process that liberates video --

Think of your video -- itself -- as " one thing " -- and think of the medium (i.e., physical disc, tape, etc. it is stored on) -- as " another thing " .

The two " things " are no longer " bound " (i.e., captured) one to the other.

Liberated Video ™ is " free " of any one medium -- and compatible with all media.

Liberated ™ Video is -- Liberated For EVER! ™

In a " free digital state " , video becomes Universally Compatible with the largest possible number of

  1. storage mediums -- like DVD and Blu-ray
  2. storage devices -- like SSD and hard drives
  3. computer platforms -- like Mac and PC
  4. Liberated cloud drives -- like iCloud and Dropbox.

To Share or Clone Liberated Video ™ Files:

You -- or your clients or family members --
can just Drag-N-Drop ™ Liberated Video ™ Files to

  1. ANY storage medium
  2. ANY storage device
  3. ANY computer platform
  4. ANY Liberated cloud drive

Liberated For EVER! ™


Video Reproduction (Digital Cloning) -- Key to Long Term Survival

Bottom Line:

Liberated Video ™ can be reproduced (i.e.,digitally cloned) -- cheap and easy -- scores, hundreds, thousands -- or millions -- of time.

NOTE: The terms " copy " " transfer " and " duplication " ALL technically allow for the end result video to be of a lower quality than the original video. Digital Cloning, on the other hand, does NOT allow for variance in quality.

For Example: Duplicating or Copying one DVD to another DVD ALWAYS creates an inferior DVD. This is because the recording is not standardized -- and creates " recording errors " mixed in with your video. Copy a DVD -- copies old errors and long with video data -- and adds to that, new data errors -- leaving the resulting " new copy " CLOSER to data block failure -- than the old original DVD disc!

The only way to " clone " a DVD, is to use the same Liberated DVD Disc-IMAGE ™ to burn two DVD discs.

The great thing about Liberated ™ Disc-IMAGES is, they CAN be " cloned " thousands of times, to any media -- for the next thousand years and beyond! And every one will be identical!

Theoretically, a DVD burned in 2018, using a cloned Liberated DVD Disc-IMAGE ™ , will be the same as a DVD burned in 3018.

Thus the life of the video -- is multiplied -- by the number of times the Liberated video is reproduced -- with each Liberated video replication having its own as free state -- its own independent life -- as Liberated Video ™ .

The replication of the exact same Liberated Video ™ -- a free-state digital file -- can go on and on --
Liberated For EVER! ™


Liberated Video Is Extremely Portable

All streaming video via the Internet is Liberated Video.

Examples of Liberated video: Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime, Roku, PlayStation VUE, etc.

Our NetFlixR.us ™ Player gives YOU a way to give your family, friends, or clients SECURE / PRIVATE Internet base video.

At risk of repeating myself, Liberated Video is transportable (digitally clonable) on

  1. ANY storage medium
  2. ANY storage device
  3. ANY computer platform
  4. ANY Liberated cloud drive

Liberated For EVER! ™

*True-to-Life™ Speed and Motion

DIFFERENCE: True-to-Life ™ Speed and Motion

Movie Film -- and Video FROM Movie Film -- can offer two different experiences -- from the exact same footage -- playing at different speeds.

For Example:

Ten years ago, the video above -- " captured via Telecine Scanner " --originally ran too fast -- 25% faster -- than you see it now. Ten years ago, Grandfather looked like a " bucking bronco " -- trying to kill his grandson.

Today -- after being ReMastered using DAI ™ Technology -- and forever more -- the clip runs at True-to-Life Speed with True-to-Life Motion. You can now see for yourself how how careful and gentle Grandpa was -- and how much he loved his grandson.

DIFFERENCE: Why True-to-Live ™ Motion IS Important

When VIDEO images, from movie films, move TOO FAST -- faster than live action -- then the experience of " almost being there " -- to re-live special moments -- with family, friends, or colleges -- is lost -- lost forever!

In the first half of LAST CENTURY -- the era of " movie film " -- Speed/Motion Distortion -- was NEVER part of original movie film " viewing experience " .

However, in the second half of last century -- the video tape era -- " telecine scanners " were invented -- to convert movie film images to video images.

Telecine Scanners Were An Imperfect Technology

Telecine Scanners introduced

  1. crude motion distortion,
  2. gross color distortion,
  3. black & white distortion
  4. duplicated frames,
  5. sound distortion, and
  6. interlaced linear artifacts
  7. into video images

that were NOT in the original movie film.

In the era of 4K UD HD displays, these imperfections are amplified beyond the obvious -- into the obnoxious!

Speed/Motion Distortion:

In layman's terms...

Speed/Motion Distortion was/is introduced
by old fashioned " telecine film scanners " .

For video from 8mm and 16mm silent films

A " telecine scanner " -- last century technology -- crams

For video from Super 8 films

A " telecine scanner " -- last century technology -- crams

Right now, your VIDEO Images (from movie film) are too fast, too.

Speed/Motion Distortion WAS NEVER IN YOUR ORIGINAL MOVIE FILM.

DAI ™ and Liberation ™ corrects Speed/Motion Distortion.

YOU HAVE A CHOICE:

Why would anyone accept crude motion distortion -- in 2018?

Maybe watching movie film run too fast -- is funny -- for a couple seconds or minutes -- but it is NOT funny for hours. It is certainly not funny -- every single time -- you want to re-visit the images, and savor the emotions, of your movie film images.

Now -- if and when you want " funny " -- there is the speed control button -- on your video player control.

Speed/Motion Distortion

Bottom Line:

Your images deserve the dignity and respect of True-to-Life ™ Motion.

Your movie film images do not deserve to be " laughing stock " footage -- forever!

With DAI ™ Technology, you can reverse the Motion Distortion of last century's Telecine Technology Imperfections -- to have:

* How Can Video Be Better Than The Original?

How Video Can Be Better Than The Original

See for yourself below.

We use the latest digital technologies to re-engineer your video to the highest quality standards that modern video format technology supports.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Our " goal " is " better video " .

Progressive San Video -- is NOT a " goal " -- that necessarily means video is " better " . There are types of video -- and conditions of video -- and generations of video -- were Progressive Scan ReEngineering ™ is NOT recommended.

 

Interlaced Video is NOT bad video -- especially if we can make it better -- than a Progressive Scan alternative -- especially in the presence of video animation and high speed motion -- from antique video images -- that are faster than the scan rate of 30 fps.

We are both artist and scientist. Where the two meet is a judgment call -- when wisdom to know -- when TO and -- when NOT TO -- ReEngineer ™ to Progressive Video -- is part of the experience we bring to your video.

Many times BOTH video scanning solutions -- Interlaced AND Progressive -- make the best solution for a client's needs.

As such, we reserve the right to make the creative judgment call -- when TO and -- when NOT TO -- ReEngineer ™ to Progressive Video.


Digital Algorithmic Interpolation ™ (DAI)

DAI™ (i.e., Digital Algorithmic Interpolation) is our proprietary technology.

DAI™ is used to ReMaster ™ video from Interlaced Video to Progressive Scan Video -- retaining both horizontal and vertical resolution of the original video.

DAI makes high grade video -- like Video8, Hi8, Digital8 (D8) and MiniDV -- look almost like movie film.

Better yet, DAI makes video --
which originated FROM movie film --
look LIKE the original movie film.

For Example:

Interlaced to Progressive Scan using DAI™:


Original Full Frame of Tiny 8mm Film

Before DAI™: 400 Zoom - see flags above

After DAI™: 400 Zoom

True-to-Life ™ Motion and True-to-Life ™ Speed


Video After DAI

DAI™ is used with video -- that originated FROM movie film.

DAI™ allows us to use modern video synchronization technology that gives your video True-to-Life ™ Motion and True-to-Life ™ Speed.

DAI™ eliminates the need for last century Telecine Film Transfer Technology -- still used by most companies -- which...

  • Distorts both speed and motion of the moving images
  • Distorts images with INTERLACED video
  • Distorts images with
  • Distorts images with 3:2 pull-down " motion judder "
  • Distorts color with Bland and White Color Correction (NOT!) which forces some random color to white and some random color to black and distorts all other colors between black and white to funny color.

None of these distortions were in the original movie film -- and

  • most of these distortions can be removed or minimized from your video FROM movie film.

Important Exception to Progressive Scan:

  • When interlaced video is has been heavily edited with many animated graphics, it is sometimes best to leave the video as 720i (interlaced) video. In such cases we reserve the right to NOT convert video to Progressive Scan video.

Dual-Pass Rendering ™ (DPR)

DPR (i.e., Dual-Pass Rendering ™ ) is a two-step (i.e., dual-pass) rendering method used for commercial grade partial-frame video like MPEG-2 (i.e., DVD Liberated Disc-FREE™ Disc-IMAGE ™ ) and H.264/MP4 (i.e., Blu-ray Liberated Disc-FREE™ Disc-IMAGE ™ ) video files.

DPR compresses video (from your ReMastered ™ video master files) into video that can be conveniently used on the Internet and on Optical Discs -- with video quality that rivals the ReMastered ™ video master files.

DPR creates additional video frames (see picture below)

  • To smooth motion on 4K/UD/HD displays and
  • To add resolution to objects in motion -- so that they retain their original shape.

For Example:

  • A flying ball -- looks like ball (not a bird);
  • A flying bird -- looks like bird (not a ball).

Above: Dual-Pass Rendering Using Group of Picture (GOP) Analysis

Dual-Pass Rendering analyzes a Group Of Pictures (GOP) to create more detail in your moving images. After an " Analysis Pass " , the two center frames would be created -- for smoother motion and additional resolution of motion -- using Dual-Pass Rendering.

Video and Film Capture:

On the other hand, " capturing video " -- is " STRipping™ video " .

Video Capture Equipment -- like Telecine Scanners or Tape-to-DVD recorders -- use Single-Pass Rendering. There is no " Analysis Pass " ; Thus, single-pass rendering omits (i.e., STRip out) the two center frame of video -- creating a stark motion -- by today's standards.

Bottom line:

What was impossible last century -- is unacceptable this century. You should NOT be accepting or paying for " video capture " STRipping services.

Video Liberation ™ -- using DAI™I and DPR -- is the new standard for video quality.

In Technical Terms:

Group Of Pictures (GOP) Analysis of Predictive and Bi-predictive frames in a Dual-Pass Rendering would include the CREATION OF THE TWO CENTER FRAMES (above) and would add more resolution to video motion.

Why this is important to you, follows:

  1. Hand-held camcorder video -- with rapid and unstable motion -- like home movies -- CAN BE more stable. We can now slow down this motion -- to more enjoyable speeds. Key to this process is Dual-pass Rendering -- which fills in the gaps with additional " smoothing " frames.

    Last century technology -- with single-pass rendering -- makes " hand held " motion worse -- complete with eye strain and headaches.

  2. Video that is ReEngineered ™ from Interlaced video -- into Progressive Scan Video --preserves the vertical resolution of the image -- on today's High Def and Ultra Def displays.

    Last century's single-pass rendering Tape-to-DVD Combo Recorders can NOT do this.

  3. Video -- that originates FROM movie film -- is both interlaced and moves too fast; but " True-to-Life Speed and Motion " can be restored -- as Progressive Scan Video -- for today's 4K/UD/HD displays.

    Last century's single-pass film telecine scanners can NOT do this.
    Last century's single-pass Tape-to-DVD Combo recorders can NOT do this.

What This Means To You:

A ReMastered ™ DVD -- that is the highest quality -- the MPEG-2 Video Standard will support -- because it INCLUDES Predictive and Bi-predictive frames -- as Progressive Scan video.

Same for H.264/MP4: ReMastered Video


The Opposite of ReMastering ™ Liberated Video ™

Most video capture services -- calling their services many things.

  • " Film Transfer Services " or
  • " Video Copy Services " or
  • " Video Duplication Services " or
  • " Video Transfer Services " ,. etc.

In the end, What You Get with other Studios:

  1. a STRripped ™ DVD disc -- as interlaced video
  2. a mp4 file -- Ripped ™ from the DVD disc
  3. a lie -- that your DVD disc is " archive worthy "

What You Do NOT Get

  1. A full-frame master file -- say nothing of Progressive Scan master
  2. A DVD Liberated Disc-FREE™ Disc-IMAGE file -- to make more DVD discs
  3. A Flash Drive --- with all you DVD Liberated Disc-FREE™ Disc-IMAGES on it

Single-Pass Rendering -- or Ripping™ Video

Creates an intermediate, full-frame video file. File content is limited to preserving only the first and the last original frames of video -- above.

There are good ways and bad ways to Rip ™ Video. Using Composite video (i.e., RCA) is bad. Using S-Video or Component RGB is better.

Ripping ™ video is a gateway from last century technology -- into digital technology. However, Ripping video can NOT create the two center frames of video nor create progressive scan video.


Single-Pass " STRipping™ " Video

STRipping ™ video is the counterfeit of Ripping ™ video.

Strips-out much of the original video by reducing " original video frame " to only a part of the original frame -- called a " partial frame " . This is also called " lossy compression " .

STRipping video is used to " capture video " to one DVD disc " on-the-fly " -- in " real time " .

Referring to the picture above, the fist frame -- and only parts of the last frame -- are used. The two center frames never happen. This is the lowest quality video the MPEG-2 Standard will support and still work.

Effects on Video Tapes & Movie Film:

All Tape-to-DVD combo recorders use Single-Pass " STRipping™ " .
Most Telecine Machines use Single-Pass " STRipping™ " .

Real-Time Video Capture is usually STRipped ™ to a DVD disc.

Since " STRipped video " means you don't get all your video, you are " robbed " of much of your original video images -- video that you think you are paying -- to have saved.

Since there is no Video Analysis and Frame Predicting Pass, the two center frames -- Predictive and Bi-predictive frames -- are omitted -- or " STRipped-off " .

Since these frames " should have been there " , the customer -- paying for a high quality DVD -- is " defrauded " . Finally, when this video is displayed on HDTV or UHDTV, the motion in the video is " jerky " and " objects in motion " have distorted shapes.

Companies advertising " Telecine Machines " or " Tape-to-DVD Transfer " are advertising they offer inferior video -- and assume the public is too dumb to understand.


Dual-Pass Rendering ™ Video (DPR)

Dual-Pass Rendering (DPR) is complex. There are smart ways and default ways to do it.

The way we do it -- takes longer and is harder -- but gives you

  1. The first and last " original frames " above -- as Progressive Scan Video
  2. Plus the Predictive P-Frame and the Bi-predictive B-Frame above.

We start with Digital ReMastering -- creating master files using DAI. The advantage is, DAI creates all the original and predictive frames above -- as " full progressive frames " -- of digital video.

Having the most -- and the best -- video information to work with -- prior to DPR -- gives you be best images -- and most (i.e., resolute) images possible!


Summary:

A Film or Video " Capture " -- " STRips ™ Video "

  1. STRips video of both original and potential image quality:
    1. Compressing Whole Original Frames to Partial STRipped Frames
    2. Omitting Liberated Video Predictive P-Frame H.264/MP4 Video
    3. Omitting Liberated Video Bi-predictive B-Frame H.264/MP4 Video
  2. Omitting Full Frame Master Files -- in Progressive Scan Video
  3. Omitting Dual-pass Rendered Liberated Video Products
    1. Omitting Liberated DVD Disc-IMAGES ™
    2. Omitting Liberated Blu-ray Disc-IMAGES ™

What This Means To You:

Video of lesser quality -- than your original images!

* What is Movie Film ReColorization ™ ?

What is Movie Film ReColorization™

The difference between ReColorization ™ and ordinary Color Balance is, ReColorization ™ can actually change one color at at time -- retaining the natural -- " true color temperature " -- of all other colors. Colors which are already " good " , stay good, colors that need ReColorization ™ can be changed -- one at a time -- as needed.

We have a specialty service that ReColorizes ™ images -- from movie film -- whether the images originate from the original movie film, or whether the images come secondarily from VIDEO -- that came FROM an old " movie film transfer " or " movie film capture " .

We have a high degree of success from the latter, if the video is digital video or analogue video from 8mm Hi8 or Video8 video tape.

We can also apply ReColorization ™ to any video footage -- shot on camcorders -- whereby we restore color in " bad lighting " situations. Like images under florescent bulbs, images in some low-light settings -- like in a church chapel, or bright sunlight, etc.

What You Want To Avoid

Old fashioned Telecine Machines utilize Black & White Balance -- also called Auto Color Correction. However, unlike the name implies, In the end, the color is never " correct' -- say nothing of " natural " .

Why.

In nature pure white is only found in a few flowers, not in natural sunlight.
In nature shadows are NEVER pure black.

Nonetheless, White Balance -- forces some random color-- like sky blue -- that is NEVER white -- to become white; and Black Balance -- forces some random shadow that is NEVER black -- to be black.

But that is NOT the BAD NEWS!

The BAD NEWS IS, ALL colors shift -- at random -- to be some artificial color compromise;. and the subtle tones and shades of the original movie film is lost .

For example, the yellow sunlight on a sidewalk becomes harsh grey and white. The subtle blues and reds and yellows of Sunsets and Sunrises -- become muddy orange. You can see the difference in the example below -- which you may want to watch again as a " review " .

You may have seen this clip above, but you may find it helpful for review.

Video Preservation & Liberation
Very Important!

* What is a Video Archive System?

What is a Video Archive System?

A video archive system is a " method " -- not " a thing " -- for preserving Liberated Video content.

Our Liberated Video ™ Archive System ™ incorporates many existing computer hardware technologies -- without relying on any one of them -- to protect video content -- long term.

The key to video preservation is

  1. Cheap and Easy Reproduction
  2. Cheap and Easy Migration
  3. Cheap and Easy Use.

For example:

We ReMaster and Liberate (i.e., diversify) your video content for...

Cheap and Easy Reproduction

  1. " Liberated " master files,
  2. " Liberated " disc images, and
  3. " Liberated " compressed video files.

You (or we) can then spread (i.e., diversify) your " Liberated Video ™ Products " (i.e.,via file cloning, sharing and storing) -- over many technologies -- for...

Cheap and Easy Migration To...

Finally, the Liberated Video is available -- anywhere, anytime --- you are.

Cheap and Easy Use

Using -- the same video content -- on many media technologies -- is possible -- ONLY because Liberated Video ™ files, themselves, are self-contained, diversified, and can exist -- independent of any one computer hardware technology.

* Bottom Line on Video Preservation

Bottom Line on Video Preservation

For purposes of archiving (i.e., preserving) video, there are two distinctions:

  1. " Captured Video " -- imprisons video on one medium -- can not survive a technology DEATH shift.
  2. " Liberated Video " -- frees video from any medium -- can survive many technology DEATH shifts.

Liberation ™ is the reason, Liberated Video ™ Products have the highest probability of survival -- in a raging sea of many technology DEATH shifts -- over time -- Liberated For EVER! ™

Because Liberated Video ™ files are self-contained and universally compatible, Liberated Video ™ files can be adapted

The archive " method " (i.e., Video Archive System) spreads -- the same video content --

The same video content -- can survive -- many technology DEATH shifts.

Most importantly, video functionally -- becomes part of -- video preservation. Cheap to reproduce and easy to use video -- becomes critical to its own survival.

On the other hand, a video -- in a lock box or safety deposit box -- is doomed.

Bottom line: Spreading video around

  1. means spreading video risk
  2. means spreading video survival rate
  3. means sharing more joy with more people!

FOOT NOTE:

Most people think a recordable DVD disc is an " archive medium ". That is NOT true.

The National Archives and Records Aministration (NARA) banned all dye-based recordable optical disc -- for archive purposes -- in all Federal Agencies -- back in 2007. NARA advised the pubic -- to do the same.

NARA may have banned recordable DVD discs because the DVD disc recording industry never "standardized' DVD records; and most DVD recoredings are so polluited with data errors -- the DVD discs are approaching block failure -- immediately after the DVD is recorded.

NARA may have banned DVDs because the "dye" in recordable DVDs is unstable -- once activated -- and only slight aging of a "near failing" recorded disc -- pushes most DVD recordings into failure.

Avocates of the DVD industry may dispute "why" NARA did what they did; however, no DVD advocate can dispute "what" NARA actually did -- in 2007. NARA definitely banned DVD recordings for archive purposes.

The Library of Congress followed NARA's advice.

IBM made similar decissions.

Wal-Mart, Costco, YesVideo and may other "video preservation" companies, in my opinion, seem to obstruct NARA warnings to the public.

(P) = Physical Products

* Overview Of All Video Products

Overview Of All Video Products

Liberated ™ and Physical ™ Video Products

" Physical " means -- a product exists in a " physical or material " state.

Example:

" Liberated " means -- a product that exist in a " digital or energy " state.

Example:

As you can see, " digital energy " -- at 60Hz per second -- can " act like " physical matter " - - a hammer -- and put you on the floor!

Granted, this a rather crude example, nonetheless,

Example:

 

People can get confused when we offer them both the Physical and the Liberated version -- of the same product.

For Example:

The product we call a DVD -- is produced as both a Liberated Disc and a Physical Disc.

In the world of commercial video production, the Liberated DVD -- also called a " disc image " -- is created using, what is called " Dual-Pass Rendering " . More on what this means later.

The Liberated DVD -- Disc Image -- is then " burned " onto light sensitive layers of the Physical DVD -- to produce what all of us traditionally think about -- as being a DVD -- a physical DVD Disc.

As you can see, without the " disc image " the disc platter is worthless as anything more that a coaster for your coffee cup.

Providing a client with a Liberated DVD empowers them to " burn " as many Physical DVDs as they could ever dream of having.

But -- if you make and share many copies of the " Liberated disc images " -- and those " Liberated disc images " are shared -- into the future -- the video can last -- Liberated For EVER! ™

Bottom Line: It is a good idea to spread both types of DVDs around your friends and family -- and give them permission -- to pass them forward -- Liberated For EVER! ™

But this is only the beginning of what you can do with Liberated Vide ™ o files . Liberation takes the digital standards far beyond the limits of a physical products.

When a Liberated Disc Image -- is " repackaged " onto a new physical technology - new Physical Video Products -- new uses emerge -- for (an old) DVD standard.

You can just let your imagination run wild! I did! So have Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon!

For Example: The Liberated DVD disc image can also be copied to a flash drive, hard drive, the Internet -- and the Liberated DVD video can still be played -- just like a Physical DVD disc.

Imagine being able to play your entire collection of DVDs -- from a flash drive -- and copy the flash drive to any ones computer. We call that product DVD N-a-Flash ™ drive.

Using a DVD disc image via a " cloud drive " gives the viewer a Netflix or YouTube " like " experience; however, using MP4 video is more efficient with limited bandwidth. That's what our NetFlixR.us ™ Player is all about.

Bottom line: Liberation of a diversified " Liberated ™ Video " library opens the door to new uses for video -- and allows us all to still keep our (physical) DVD discs -- for as long as we want to use them.

    * Why DVD Discs Are NOT Archive Worthy

    Why DVD Discs Are NOT Archive Worthy

    Recordable Optical Discs (i.e., includes DVD-R, DVD-RW, CD-R, BD-R, etc.)

    In 2005, the findings of Canadian studies revealed Recordable Optical Discs failed data life longevity tests -- and were unreliable for archive purposes. Recordable discs of all kinds failed profoundly.

    In, 2006, research by IBM confirmed Canadian findings.

    In 2007, The National Archives & Records Administration (NARA) -- the governing agency over all Federal Archives and Archive Regulations -- banned the use of dye based recordable optical discs (i.e., like DVD-R) for archive purposes in all Federal Agencies.

    At that time, NARA and the Library of Congress began to advise the public to NOT use Recordable Optical Discs -- for long term storage. More on this later.

    Download it and read it for yourself -- then send it to people you care about.

    National Archives Newsletter:_Pacific_Currents_October_2007_Vol_1.pdf.zip

    FACT: A DVD disc

    This is because optical disc recorders are not standardized.

    Proof: As reported in the NIST / Library of Congress Optical Disc Longevity study -- Findings: 2007

    Reasons for Data Errors Are Related To

    Add to that fact, that writing errors -- on even the most expensive off-the-shelf disc -- are prevalent due to " wobble " or " yaw " or " imbalance " (i.e., just like on a tire on your car). A spinning spiral -- with a " wobble " -- is formula for disaster (see below-right).

    Bottom line, since everyone -- is in fact using " non-standardized " optical disc recorders -- even with the newest, most expensive recordable DVD discs -- there is still no guarantee of better " data longevity " .

    According to NIST/Library of Congress Optical Disc Longevity Study, every optical disc RECORDER Manufacture is -- " doing their own thing " -- to record optical discs. As a result RECORDERS are typically polluting DISCS with recording errors -- pushing data blocks -- up to the brink of failure -- before the disc is even finished being recorded (i.e., burned).

    Scratches, pollution, handling, moisture, raw light, etc. -- push these discs -- over the brink -- some times in just a few months -- years before the disc should theoretically fail.

    This is the difference between " shelf life " of an unburned disc -- in contrast with " data life " -- of the DATA on a " burned disc " .

    It is not the DISC's fault, but the DISC RECORDER'S fault. Nonetheless, recordable DVD disc are the victim of short lived data -- and so are you -- if you rely upon them.

    Bottom Line on dye based optical discs:

    NIST/Library of Congress Optical Disc Longevity Study proved that is was POSSIBLE - but not PRACTICAL -- for recordable optical discs to have a long " data life " --

    but only under very expensive and very controlled conditions.

    For this apparent reason, The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) BANNED the use of recordable optical media -- one month after the NIST/Library of Congress Optical Disc Longevity Study -- FINAL REPORT!

    Due to no fault of their own, dye based optical discs -- like DVD-R and Blu-ray BD-R -- should NOT be used as archive media -- according to the National Archives (NARA) -- with good reason.

    Why This Is IMPORTANT To YOU

    When catastrophic disaster strikes, people start looking for " The 3 P's " .

    1. People
    2. Pets
    3. Pictures

    I know this first hand.

    Morbid Emotional Loss: The loss of moving pictures (video) is second only to the death of a person or pet. This is because moving pictures -- to the minds eye -- emotionally -- suspend the perception of reality. Video has become the last link with dearly departed loved family and friends.

    This lost is " heart felt " and -- emotionally -- very real " pain and suffering " . The loss of video is psychologically a " second death " .

    Example:

    I know this pain personally, I lost hours and hours of video of my Grandmother and other family members in a studio move. Its not like I had even watched the video for years, but every once in a while I could, and did, watch parts of the collection. More importantly -- I always knew I could -- any time I wanted to, just go home to Grandma's house.

    However, when I realized the collection was GONE -- and even the option to watch it was gone, I panicked! I experienced sudden, profound emotional loss. This was a shock and surprise to me. But that was only the beginning!

    After searching unsuccessfully, I began to experience deep emotional mourning. Just thinking about the loss of the videos rekindled grief of loved ones -- gone for decades!

    This pain drove me to look obsessively -- every time I had a few spare momments. I couldn't help myself. I actually got on my knees and Prayed that God would help me find those videos!

    I never realized how important " old family movies " were to ME! And I was in the business!

    I must sincerely give thanks to God, that months later, I did find -- and did ReMaster -- my own video heritage from old DVDs -- but many of DVD had gone bad!

    Over a year later, I found, and ReMastered, the last missing videos -- from a crashed hard drive -- which I had " hung onto " . Amen.

    To this day, those videos are the only link I have -- with most of my family. As an only child, you can realize what this means to me. I know I do! They are priceless -- and backed up -- several times! With Love and Thanksgiving!

    So, now you know why -- I know -- what I do for you -- is important -- and a sacred trust. Amen.

    For Business Loss of Video is Commercial Loss:

    Video supplements " labor " in training and " talent " in advertising. Businesses no long need " live training " for many purposes.

    The loss of video means this training and talent must be re-created -- at the cost of time and money -- to once again promote the interests of the company.

    Bottom Line:

    If you have recordable DVD discs older than 5 years old, you should run, not walk, to watch your home movies or company training tapes -- beginning to end.

    If they are still in good shape -- but " captured " to DVD -- for archive purposes -- get them to us ASAP; we can " liberate " them -- and YOU -- from their " medium of captivity " -- and the technology " death " shift now taking place -- the DVD Industry.

    We can provide both the technology and strategy to preserve your DVD video -- " for real " --
    Liberated For EVER! ™

    We can also provide you with DVD disc images of your DVDs -- so YOU can " burn " as many DVD discs as you, your company, or family will EVER want or need.

    If your DVD disc have problems, call us, we may have a solution.

    If your DVD discs don't work, we can at least try to salvage something.

    In the last two cases, we can add your name to our growing list of people -- with dead DVD video -- who were never warned of NARA Guidelines nor the risks of relying on DVD discs for archvie purposes.



    Buyer Beware: Two Standards of Service

    When a CLIENT pays for a video conversion, it is wrong to only put the video on a temporary DVD -- and to NOT TELL the client thier only copy of their video is on a temporary DVD.

    But, this happens everyday to THE PUBLIC.

    The Commercial Standard

    In the commercial video world EVERYONE KNOWS that a contract for creating a DVD -- includes both a " master file " and a " DVD disc image file " . There are very good reasons for this. Recordable DVD disc are full of recording errors(inferior video) and Recordable DVD discs are temporary.

    In the commercial video world, EVERYONE KNOWS NARA Guidelinee. Obstructing and disregarding NARA Guidelines on behave of a client

    • Will damge the client's video
    • Will damge the cleint
    • Is Gross Neglegence
    • Could be fraudulent.

    Master files and DVD disc image video files are " production assets "

    • considered " part of the DVD "
    • considered more important than the DVD itself
    • required to backup and protect the client's DVD investment
    • required to edit and recreate new DVD's in the future
    • required to make other non-DVD video products

    Commercial Clients can bring legal action against a " negligent " act -- like not providing a them both the " master file " and " Liberated disc image " -- associated with making a physical DVD disc.

    The Public Standard

    Why should the " commercial standard " -- that protects a company like PBS -- not apply to a " single woman " or " black man " or " poor minority family " -- to protect them, too?

    Is not their family history on video " priceless " to them -- and an important record of life in America?

    It is certainly more important than a training video or a info commercial -- which have the protection of law.

    Yet companies and corporations " obstruct " NARA warnings to the public and " disregardt " NARA Guidelines -- every day of the week -- selling Recordable DVD discs for " archive purposes " -- to the public -- ever since October, 2007. More on this later.

    Next time you are at the Wal-Mart or Pharmacy photo department, ask them if they follow NARA Guidelines. See if they are selling " archive " or " gold " DVD discs.


    Where We Stand on Standards and NARA Guidelines

    We have always treated commercial and consumer clients equally -- just because it is the right thing to do.

    We have always given every client " full frame " digital master tapes and digital backup tapes since 1999. After that, we moved to " full frame " master tapes and hard drives, now we promoting Progressive Frame Liberation, drive cloning, and media diversity -- as the best way to preserve video.

    Our Progressive Frame Liberation ™ exceeds NARA guidelines.

    I offer proof on what I say below.

    * M-Disc and EMP and CME Events
    EMP = Electromagnetic Pulse or
    CME = Coronal Mass Ejection

    M-Disc and EMP and CME Events

    M-Disc theoretically could protect -- data -- in an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) or CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) apocalyptic event -- assuming there is no radioactive fallout.

    Non-organic Blu-ray BD-R discs MIGHT offer some protection however, BD-R discs use a Copper-plated Silicon. Copper is a wonderful conductor of electricity. For that reason, I would not bet on a BD-R surviving an EMP.

    Also consider, an EMP or CME would wipe out all regional optical disc players (i.e., without Faraday cage protection). Even with Faraday Cage Protection, an optical disc player will subcoma to " rubber rot " within 5 to 10 years -- as will all rubber replacement parts -- like rubber wheels and rubber belts.

    Bottom line, an M-Disc -- with no way to play it -- offers " data only " protection; and thus offers only hope, that the video will one day, decades later, will be seen again.

    Therefore, for the sake of hope alone, M-Disc should be considered as a Crisis Management Medium for any Archive System.

    Technology DEATH Shifts: How Ignorance Kills

    * Technology DEATH Shifts Destroy Most Video

    technology DEATH shifts Destroy Most Video:

    Because most video is " captured video " , a technology DEATH shift, is like a shipwreck -- with video " sinking with the ship " .

    For example, the video tape industry has gone away -- its wrecked. All video -- captured to video tape -- is, figuratively, sunk! The optical industry (i.e., DVD discs, Blu-ray discs and M-Disc) is now going away, too! Video captured to any optical disc -- is sinking with the ship.

     

    Liberated Video -- with a Video Archive System (i.e., methodology) -- being shipwrecked in a sea of drifting technology -- means there is a method for Liberated Video to collecting one piece of driftwood (i.e., technology) -- then the next -- and the next -- until there is a technology raft -- keeping the Liberated Video afloat -- Liberated For EVER! ™

    Survival of the video is what is important; the survival of the any one medium -- is not important.

    * Cautions About M-Disc Optical Discs

    Cautions About M-Disc Optical Discs

    We love M-Disc -- for dooms day video preservation -- but...

    M-Disc had great promise for data longevity, however, M-disc is an optical disc -- dependent on optical disc players. M-Disc is now caught in a technology DEATH shift -- the decline of the optical disc players and dye-based optical disc in general. I hope M-Disc and M-Disc players find a market niche, for your sake -- and mine, but the odds are not good.

    Good News:

    Ironically, DVD Liberated disc images (i.e. used to make physical M-Disc and DVD-R discs) will most likely be with us for decades. This is because DVD Liberated disc images will work -- just like a DVD disc -- with video controls, subtitles, chapters -- from both flash drives and from the internet. Since it cost nothing to duplicate a DVD Liberated disc image -- who needs a physical disc? All this is why, after all, the new " emerging Liberated video technologies " -- are displacing optical discs and disc players -- in yet another " technology DEATH shift " .

    When to letting go...

    of Physical DVD technology -- is a matter of timing -- and if a client has DVD Liberated disc images -- where they can use them -- the chance of missing physical disc will have minimum impact.

    This is why we invented DVD-N-a-Flash ™ Drive -- as a transitional device -- between Physical discs and Liberated discs -- giving you the ability to " burn your own " -- as you need.

    National Archive Standards And DVD Discs

    * Why NARA Is Important To YOU!

    Why NARA Is Important To YOU!

    In the United States, the most authoritative Archive Organization -- with the best " Video Archive System -- is the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

    1. NARA not only " archives media " but also both regulates and enforces Archive Standards for the Federal Government and all Federal Agencies. If you don't believe me...

      Example of NARA Archive Enforcement : In 2016, NARA challenged Hilary Clinton's method of archiving State Department documents -- which triggered an FBI investigation.

    2. NARA also offers Archive Guidelines for Archive Institutions like The Library of Congress the Smithsonian.

    3. Finally, NARA offers Archive Guidelines for commercial archive services and private individuals.

    Our Archive System Follows NARA Guidelines by

    1. Using NARA Video Diversity Guidelines
      1. using diverse Video file formats
      2. using diverse Physical Media types
    2. using NARA recognized " archive worthy " media, and
    3. informing clients -- of dangerous archive media --
      like recordable DVD-R discs
    4. informing clients -- about emerging technology --
      like M-Disc, Liberated disc images, and Liberated containers
    5. phasing media now obsolete by technology DEATH shifts

    We Exceed NARA Guidelines by

    Using Liberated Video

    1. as a stand-alone product
      1. like DVD Liberated Disc-FREE™ Disc-IMAGE ™ files
      2. like Blu-ray Liberated Disc-FREE™ Disc-IMAGE ™ files
      3. like Liberated ™ Master Files

    Using a Universally Compatible Logical Drive within a physical drive GUI Media Interface
    as part of the Archive -- for Universal Compatibility across

      1. all media types
      2. all data storage devices
      3. all computer platforms (Mac and PC) and

    Using (suppling) an Internet video distribution platform
    for global video distribution and optional download

    Called Liberated Video ™ NetFlixR.us ™ Player and Website Back-door ™

    Using Diverse Physical Video ™ Products
    as " host " -- to our " guest " Universally Compatible Logical Drive within a physical drive ™ Drives

    1. Hard Drives
    2. Solid state drives types -- including
      1. Flash Drive
      2. Memory Cards
      3. Micro Memory Cards
      4. SSD drives
    3. M-Disc

    Using Temporary Media -- for non-archive use
    with NARA warnings and cautions regarding their use.

    * Were YOU Defrauded and Damaged Before?

    Were YOU Defrauded and Damaged Before?

    Did a pharmacy or " big box " store " capture " your movie films or video tapes -- onto DVD discs?

    Willful obstruction and noncompliance to NARA guidelines -- in commercial archive services -- for commercial gain from the public -- is grounds for gross negligence -- if not public fraud (in my opinion).

    In October 2007, NARA banned the use of recordable CD and DVD discs for long term storage of Federal records and images -- advising the public to do the same.

    Similar guidelines were previously made by IBM (2006) and disclosed a by Canadian optical disc longevity study (Released as an International Study in 2005).

    In regulating archive standards, NARA rejected the NIST / Library of Congress Optical Disc Longevity Study Findings (released Sept. 2007). NARA banned the use of all recordable optical discs from all Federal Institutions -- one month after " findings " were released.

    Details which you can read at https://www.archives.gov/records-mgmt/newsletter/currents/2007-october.pdf

    National Archives: Current Public Advisory:

    Recordable (DVD) optical media have widely varying life expectancies. It is not entirely uncommon for some discs to become unreadable in less than 1 year. Relying on recordable discs to last for generations is probably not viable.   

    SOURCE: https://www.archives.gov/preservation/formats/video-condition-assessment.html      

    Burned (recordable CD-R, DVD-R, BD-R) discs make use of an organic dye layer in order to record data and are typically less reliable because this dye is more susceptible to degradation over time. Recordable CDs, Blu-rays, and DVDs have proven to be fairly unstable over time, and are deemed a bad choice for long-term preservation.

    Source: https://www.archives.gov/preservation/formats/video-important-characteristics.html

    NARA General Website: https://www.archives.gov

    One NARA publication is Pacific Currents -- where they release " guidelines " items of " public interest " . National Archives: Pacific Currents by Year and Month.

    Bottom Line:

    Any " archive service " -- pharmacy or " big box " store -- selling recordable DVD disc as a medium of archive -- is defrauding the public -- in my opinion. The only exception is M-Disc.

    Modern Archive Methods For YOU

    * Archiving: This Century: This Decade

    Archiving: This Century: This Decade

    No digital media is " archive worthy " beyond 5 years -- according to the National Archives.

    Recordable Optical Disc:

    Recordable DVD discs rated sometimes LESS than a year by National Archives (NARA).

    M-Disc would be an exception to this HOWEVER, M-disc is tied to the Optical Disc Industry -- that is now in an irreversible technology DEATH shift. I predict that In 5 to 10 years, there may be no way for a consumer to play an M-Disc -- except on used equipment purchase on E-bay or on expensive " commercial grade " equipment acquired via niche market suppliers.

    How To Archive Your Video:

    According to NARA, Video Reproduction and Diversity is the only way to protect video.

    I interpret that to mean:

    We exceed NARA Guidelines by Adding Liberated Video
    to NARA's Physical Video Media Guidelines. This give our clients

    Our Strategy Multiplies Video Security by Use of

    For Example: Which offers more video security

    1. A Physical DVD disc and
    2. A backup DVD disc
    3. Checked both once a year

    or

    1. Have all of the physical DVD you could ever want and
    2. never worry about checking them because they can all
      1. be stored on
      2. be burned from
      3. be played from
      4. be cloned from
      5. any of the following sources:
        1. DVD Liberated Disc-IMAGES on a Clonable Flash Drive and
        2. DVD Liberated Disc-IMAGES on a Clonable Hard Drive and
        3. DVD Liberated Disc-IMAGES Downloadable from a Website or Cloud Drive and

    A True Archive Must Accessible Components

    For Everyday Use as

    Diversity by Replication:

    Bottom Line:

    Liberated Video ™ adds a new dimension to Archive Sciences

    Liberation allows video to be archived globally (literally) -- fast and cheaply -- to many locations -- from the Internet.

    Example of Commercial Video Archive Systems:

    The same applies similarly for Amazon Fire Stick; Apple TV, YouTube and the list grows daily.

    Take Netflix for Example: Netflix maintains on-line streaming for over 100 thousand Liberated video movies. Netflix has Liberated video disc images -- to record and to replace millions of Recordable DVD discs -- which they still mail to clients.

    To protect their investment -- Netflix has a Liberated video archive system -- with strategic redundancy.

    These companies plan to be around for a long, long, long time.

    How About the Little Guy:

    You and your family or organization deserve the same product diversity, product function, and product protection -- on a smaller scale.

    Liberated Video™ Archive System™

    Preservation is no long about " storage media "

    technology DEATH shifts take place when the supply and demand for new technology displaces an older technology.

    A technology DEATH shift happened in the Music Industry -- when Internet distribution of music -- displaced CD music discs.

    A technology DEATH shift is now happening in the Video Industry -- displacing Physical DVD and Blu-ray discs -- with Internet distribution of Liberated Video -- on demand.

    Examples: Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, PlayStation Vue, Hulu, Roku.

    technology DEATH shift is also displacing cable TV and satellite TV -- with YouTube now offering premium news and programming -- for free. For example, Fox Cable News is free on YouTube.

    So, look at me -- adapt -- I now offer NetFlixR.us ™ -- a combination of your video and my own video app -- currently as a secure back-door to any website.

    technology DEATH shifts have wiped out the analogue tape, digital tape -- and now, the optical disc -- industries. Even M-Disc -- rated to last 1,000 years -- is now caught in a technology DEATH shift -- making it an irrelevant technology. More on M-Disc later.

    According to NARA Guidelines

    NO DIGTAL TECHNOLOGY CAN SURVIVE technology DEATH shiftS!

    * New Age Video Preservation Strategy

    New Age Video Preservation Strategy

    No one digital MEDIA, like hard drive or DVD, can save your video.

    The new digital preservation strategy is the same as the preservation of life itself -- successful reproduction and diversification.

    Gone are days -- when only a MASTER TAPE and MASTER TAPE BACKUP; HARD DRIVE and a BACKUP DRIVE -- is enough. technology DEATH shifts defeat an entire industries -- almost overnight.

    A recent example is what is now happening to the Video DVD disc industry. Once you use Netflix or Amazon Fire -- you will never go back to using a DVD player! Where did all the video rental stores go? For that matter, where did all the Music CD discs go?

    As for " disc " technologies in general, solid state drives -- and cloud technologies -- are flooding, yes, DROWNDING OUT -- these technologies -- from the consumer's perspective.

    The only way your Liberated Video ™ Library can survive is digital replication -- across a strategically DIVERSIFIED field of media -- including the Internet.

    Diversity defeats technology DEATH shifts -- when replication alone fails! But both reproduction and diversification are required -- in an ongoing process -- indefinitely -- for the survival of a species -- or a video archive -- to survive.

    That's why having only a DVD between your video and oblivion is a strategic guarantee for extinction.

    The New Age of Video Preservation Strategy requires more than just a few hard drives -- hidden in the closet and safety deposit box -- where no one can ever use them. Hiding video in these " time capsules " guarantees that no one will ever see them -- or care.

    Sharing is Key to Survival:

    The New Age of Video Preservation Strategy requires SHARING VIDEO. Video preservation now requires your participation -- in actively sharing your videos -- on diversified media -- which makes your video AVAILABLE -- anytime, anywhere -- to anyone you choose --- or even to anyone who might choose to care about your video.

    Having your video -- literally " at your fingertips " -- at a moments notice -- and being able to share it -- any where, anytime, with anyone -- is key to its survival.

    For example, our most popular Liberated Video ™ Product is NetFlixR.us ™ -- a Netflix / Amazon Fire / You Tube " like " video experience -- anytime, anywhere -- on your smart phone or computer or home entertainment Internet portal.

    To this end, we have developed a Liberated Video ™ Archive System ™ --- For Life ™

    The following sections are a review of this system.

    * Summary of Our Liberated Video™ Archive System™

    Summary of Liberated Video ™ Archive System ™

    An archive system protects your video.

    Our archive system protects your video Liberated For Ever! ™

    1. Making your video cheap and easy to replicate
    2. As " diversified " (different types of) video formats

    Cheap:

    Mass data storage devices (media) are the cheapest they have ever been -- and getting cheaper every day! As of 2018, a 1Gb hard drive only cost $50 to $60 and 128Gb Flash Drive $30 to $40.

    Coping YOUR video onto someone else's drive -- COST NOTHING!

    Easy:

    1. Our Liberated Video ™ Library & Cloning™ Drives
    2. -- hard drives, flash, memory cards, etc. --
    3. ALL Include a Universally Compatible DRAG-N-DROP ™ Interface "
      1. Between the physical media (like hard drive and flash) and
      2. Your Liberated Video ™ files
      This means you can easily work with
      1. any PC or Mac using
      2. any operating system and
      3. with the Internet.
    4. We have culled both media types and video file types (that are now obsolete -- due to technology DEATH shifts -- or technically advanced beyond the scope of a client's ability to use them) -- so you don't have to!
      1. Why saddle yourself -- and the future generations -- with technology -- which will only be " a pain " , if not impossible, for them to use?
      2. For example, AVI files are NOT archive worthy files! AVI files -- once a standard video container file -- is now dysfunctional in many situations on Windows platforms, and
        AVI file have never be compatible with Apple products.
