Hello Adom –
this is not a suggestion. This is an ORDER. You will not transfer your AJ-HD1400 tapes to a DVW-A500. Video tape is over. You will transfer to a digital format, using a capture card from a company like AJA or Blackmagic Design. You will store this media on a hard drive on your computer, or a cloud site that you can access from anywhere in the world. If these are unacceptable solutions to you, then you will purchase an LTO drive from a company like MagStore or MLogic, and transfer the data from your AJ-HD1400 tapes to drive, now onto an LTO tape in the LTFS file format (software from companies like Hedge or YoYotta or Imagine Products). Now, you may say “well – I do not want to do this – I want to transfer to a Sony DVW-A500.” YOU WILL NOT DO THIS, or I will have you fired. Videotape is over. I will contact your boss, and you will no longer be employed. No one who is responsible would do this in 2020.
STOP IT. Transfer to a digital format. I command you. Who am I to speak to you this way ?
I am Bob Zelin
