    What format / media do you archive all your video (raw and edited)? I
    was thinking of back onto tape as a digital recording but after
    pulling some old tapes, I've noticed some degradation (non-digital
    recording). OK, they could have been stored better but they weren't
    abused either.

    Can you store a pure digital signal/image/whatever onto CD-R's or
    DVD's?

    Any other ideas?

    You can, but it would take allot of media for that. I would go the removal
    hard drive route. A 80gig drive will hold about 8 hours or so of raw
    footage and they're pretty cheap, will last longer than tape.

    8Mbps VBR mpg-2 will look near identical to DV with slightly
    dimised Editing capabilities.
    Type 4 DVD-RAM 9.4GB in catrdige is probably the safest
    optical media for archivals.
    Avialble for less than $1/GB online.

    Thanks for the follow up. In some ways I almost miss film.
