What aspect ratio are videos digitized to?

Given the nature of our digitization process, all video transfers will be in 4:3 aspect ratio, regardless of the original aspect ratio.

The majority of tapes are natively 4:3, so they will look just as they did when originally recorded. In some rare cases, newer tapes may have been shot in 16:9. We are not able to convert the finished files to 16:9.
