For sale: DataVideo DVK-100 TBC [SOLD]
Updated: Sold!

If you have excellent quality sources, this is what you want.
Or if used in conjunction with an ES10/15 for passthrough, this is what you want.
PM if interested.

But please be aware of what this item is, and can and cannot do. :old:

This unit was recently discussed here:, and it behaves almost exactly as I expected. It is not actually a TBC, but a chroma key box with added TBC functionality based on the DataVideo TBC-5000. In fact, it's supposed to be used in tandem with a 5000. It does not behave anything like a DataVideo TBC of yore, the 100/1000/3000/etc units.

Used alone, it is a weak TBC, weaker than other suggested TBCs. It is not suggested for using alone, and can eve degrade the video signal.

But when used with a Panasonic ES10 or ES15 for passthrough, it works quite nicely. These are complementary units. You get the TBC(ish) line/sync performance from the Panasonic, and then the DataVideo corrects whatever the Panasonic does not correct. For example, defeating copy protection (aka an artificial video error).

Works also great for Hi8.
Can confirm a DVK-100 works great for Hi8 captures with ATI 600 USB or AVerMedia CE310B cards and using VirtualDub: without it frames will be dropped and inserted, esspecially at the start and end of separated clips. Including it results in zero frames dropped/inserted. With my (untrained) eye I do not see any difference in picture quality between using the DVK-100 or not.
