    Years ago, I bought a DPS Perception board. It was one of the first high end
    video editing boards. It used a custom hardware codec and output a file with
    the extension .PVD. I have many years of work with this board saved on disc
    and data tape but without the actual board is there any way to transfer this
    information to any codec that I can use today (MPEG, AVI, Quicktime etc)????
    Has anyone out there solved this problem?

    Not sure if this will help, but check out
    (DPS was bought out by Leitch a few years back). Have a look for the DPS AVI
    Codec - it's a free download and here's part of the blurb on it:

    The DPS Avi Codec is a reference codec that uses the DPS Software Codec to
    generate AVI files that can be used by any program that can accept AVI's.
    This is similar to the original DPS Perception AVI Codec, and allows users
    to make "Virtual AVI files" that can be used in applications that cannot use
    DPS files.

    The AVI codec is a reference codec, which means that it is actually creating
    a DPS file, and pointing the Video section of the AVI to the correct frames
    of the DPS file; the video frames are not stored in the AVI file itself. The
    audio is kept in the AVI file.

    Since this release uses our DPS Software Codec, you can use it on a system
    without the hardware installed. To use the codec, you must have
    DPS_Software_Player 1.5 or later (also available on the Leitch web site at installed.
