Don't buy those swabs. Those are not like the regular chamois swabs seen in other marketplaces. You will notice it once you have them with you. You can damage your heads permanently. Use a piece of...

You need to color correct both in analog and digital stage. I do all the color correction with FCP using Apple ProRes. You need to use scopes, this is mandatory. A calibrated monitor won't prevent...

Yes, those are fantastic machines but $2,500 is way out of range. I'm a Beta collector and I don't see anyone paying that much for these machines. Not even close. Even for the better ones.

Where did you get that info from...? I have 2 ES10's (EC-S + EG-K -Germany-) and another ES20 and I haven't experienced those issues using the AV4 input/output. Is that source reliable?

Cropping does not affect quality in any way… it just messes with the original aspect ratio, unless you crop the image using the right proportions. You want to crop and pad to do it properly.

Again, a MV scrubber doesn't care about the image information part of the signal. It only cares about the first 20 lines. That’s where all these fake pulses are. There’s no A->D->A conversion done as...

There's no image processing done with the MV scrubber. That's not what it was designed for. It's purpose is to restore the vertical blank interval (which is where the Macrovision signal lives) so the...

That rewinder is a POS. Not only does it not clean the tapes, it stretches the tapes badly. If you value your tapes, you want to buy a high quality rewinder.
