At TVDATA, we’re excited to announce that we have embarked on a significant project to digitize our entire archive of analog Betacam SP tapes, which spans up until the year 2015. The tapes in our collection come from various sources, providing a rich and diverse range of content. This bulk digitization process allows us to offer faster delivery of high-quality footage to our valued clients.
However, this process also comes with certain legal and ethical responsibilities. Specifically, our footage often includes close-ups or interviews involving individuals for whom we do not possess individual model releases. As per Russian copyright law, the rights to such content can be claimed by the models or directors involved for up to 70 years after the content’s creation. You can read more about this aspect of Russian copyright law on our website. This aspect is reflected in the pricing of our digitized footage. Our commitment to adhering to copyright laws and ethical practices necessitates added measures, but we believe they are crucial to providing our clients with high-quality, legally sound footage.
