Tagged: mini DV date code
I have a box of my old mini DV tapes with the gold contacts on them
I remember reading that the dat and time would be recorded on those contacts.
Fastforward to 2019. I found a Souny GV-D900 and will be digitizing my tapes through Premiere CS5 on my Win 10 PC.
My question is how to I recover/find/display the date/datecode?
Any help would be appreciated.
As far as I know, all data — video, audio and metadata — is stored on the miniDV tape. The “gold contacts” are just that: contacts.
Some decks, the Sony DHR-1000 for example, are able to display the metadata. This includes date and time as well as various camera settings.
