Peripherals

What exactly are peripherals? When it comes to creating a DV editing setup, peripherals are typically items such as a scanner, a CD-R or DVD-R drive, or some external hard drives. Peripherals can also be devices not common for a computer, like a DV camera, a VCR, or even audio equipment, such as cassette decks or DVD players.

Playback and Monitoring

Peripheral devices, such as VCRs and DV cameras, are essential for DV editing to make both DV and VHS copies of the final movie. VHS is the preferred format for delivery, as a majority of your audience will be using VHS players. You can always create a DVD as well, but those playback devices are not quite as common as VHS yet. However, with very strong DVD player sales, the format is becoming much more popular. In addition, almost all computers are now sold with DVD drives. If you edited your project in DV, you should store the master on DV cassette by doing a direct FireWire connection to the camera or DV VTR. This way, you are pretty much just moving digital data from the computer to the tape, making an exact digital copy of your work. You can also make copies from the DV tape to analog formats with excellent quality.
