A->D Codec? Lossy

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Editing DV Films : One Thread


I was about to buy the AG-DV1000 A->D converter when I asked them if the conversion was lossless. I was told that all DV conversion is 5:1 lossy in the conversion from NTSC to DV. Is this true?

If this is true, I will buy the thing. If not, and they are compressing more than they have to, I would like to know.

Please let me know, Ira
