Abstract

Video technology has now reached a level of sophistication that allows easy digitization. Digital video can be easily edited, reproduced, incorporated into databases, and posted on intra- and Internet sites for clinical use and demonstration purposes. Numerous methods exist for the production of digital video. This article synthesizes and simplifies the available methodologies in order to easily choose the technology that is the most appropriate for the movement disorder specialist's end use. Depending on available resources, issues such as cost, ease, and time to conversion are discussed. In addition, our experience with the use of one of the methodologies is briefly presented. © 2001 Movement Disorder Society.
