AVCHD/DV/Photo Time Stamp

Description

Visual AVCHD Time Stamp (vATS), Visual DV Time Stamp (vDTS) and Visual Photo Time Stamp (vPTS) are tools to add date and/or time stamp to the captured AVCHD video files, DV AVI video files, or JPG photo files.

For AVCHD High Definition (HD) Videos NEW!

When videos recorded on an AVCHD camcorder are captured into AVCHD files on a PC, the time codes (date/time when the tape was recorded) are transferred along with the video/audio data to the files. But the time codes are not visible when you view the AVCHD files. When you use video edit tools (e.g. Windows Live Movie Maker) to convert the AVCHD files to other files, the time codes get lost. By using vATS, the time codes are extracted from the AVCHD files and superimposed onto the videos. This way the date/time will be visible when you view the stamped file, consequently other files made out of the stamped files will have date/time displayed.

vATS works for AVCHD format files only, and work on Windows 7 and Windows 8.

For DV Videos

When videos recorded on a DV camcorder tape are captured into DV AVI files on a PC, the time codes (date/time when the tape was recorded) are transferred along with the video/audio data to the files. But the time codes are not visible when you view the DV AVI files. When you use DVD author tools to convert the DV AVI files to DVD files, the time codes get lost. By using vDTS, the time codes are extracted from the DV AVI files and superimposed onto the videos with high quality. This way the date/time will be visible when you view the DV AVI file, consequently the DVD you make from the DV AVI files will have date/time displayed.

vDTS works for DV AVI format files only, it does not work for MPEG-I or MPEG-II format files.

For JPG Photos

For most of today's digital cameras the photos are saved in JPG files. The date and time at which a photo is taken are stored along with the image in so called EXIF format. Such date and time information can be viewed on a PC once the JPG files are transferred from the digital camera to the PC. When you make a hardcopy of a digital photo by using a color printer or by sending it to a photo lab, the date and time do not get printed on the hardcopy photo. By using vPTS, the date and time are extracted from the JPG files and superimposed onto the photos. This way when a hardcopy is made from the JPG file, the date and/or time will show up on the photo.

vPTS is designed to work for JPG photo files only, it may work for EXIF conformed TIF photo files, but not for photo files of other formats.
