Newbe Looking to Move Laser Discs to DVD
on Aug 12, 2004 at 5:23:39 pm

I have been a hobbyist with digital video but never had any real need before. I am now looking to get more serious and have a goal. I have a fairly deep collection of Laser Discs prior to making the change to DVD. I am not interested in re-purchasing the collection on DVD. I am looking for the best way to transfer the media to DVD for convenience of playing the movies. I have been unsuccessful with using a Dazzle video capture devise and editing with Adobe Premier to copy down to a DVD.

I am looking for help in both equipment and software to accomplish my goals.

Any and all help would be great!

It's my first time to hear about ADS Pyro products, I read a lot of good reviews about it, maybe you can use this to convert your laser discs to dvd

I bought a Panasonic DVD video recorder model DMR-E75V. I records DVD's from VHS tapes and vs versa (as long as the tapes are not record protected). You can use line-in and connect a Laser disc or Beta tape, or any other video input. The machine transfers the movie from VHS to DVD in real time, then it goes through a finishing process that last about 2 minutes. It will also record TV directly to DVD.
Your problem may be the recrod protection on the laser disc, if it has one.

THe player that I have is old enough that there is no hardware protection. However, with the laser discs you have to switch sides and in many cases swap discs. So I need to do some editing to make a clean movie prior to formatting it to DVD. The software is not the issue, what I am truely unhappy with is the quality of the picture through the capture hardware I have used to date. I have only used a few products and they are low end and there appears to be a reason why they were cheap. I will invest the money but do not want to invest money in equipment that will not return the investment.
