Archival quality vs. when to settle? #digitizing_video #digipres (part1)
So I've been practicing capturing video using ffmpeg. I'm hoping to offer a vhs digitization service at my library as part of our digital archive. Have been practicing at home with my $12 capture card and the TBC (thanks @ashley ). Have been successfully capturing video in ffv1 with md5 frame hases. Now I'm starting to wonder, WTF do I do with all of these 1's and 0's??? I'm estimating I'll have 1.5 TB of video.
