Digital vs. Analog Video – No Contest

Sometimes, the advantages of one technology over a competitor aren't clear-cut – such as with VHS vs. Beta. But in other situations, one technology is the clear winner. When it comes to digital vs. analog video, there is simply no contest.

Digital camcorders use the binary language of computers. The signal is made up of 0's and 1's… yes or no… on or off. This type of signal is clearer and less corruptible than analog. Digital video signals can carry more information than analog, too. This means the resulting images are richer, clearer and sharper than analog video could ever hope to be. Finally, digital camcorders are “plug and play” – all you need is the software.
