Hi everyone, it's been a while.
I'm at the point where I'm thinking of giving the PC a rest for video capture. My old setup is wearing out, it's time to move on. So I'm considering finally making...

Indeed, I was actually looking at Signvideo and Studio 1 (also before Signvideo) proc amps today, there's a couple on eBay. Wondering if they would be PAL-compatible also? Would be ideal as they also...

Not ideal, but for 1 hour of capture, the difference only amounts to 3GB when compared to 2 channel audio.
What concerns me more is the 10-bit pixel format.

Managed to purchase the Vidicraft PRC-100, waiting for it to arrive then I'll post some more tests.

Also, some questions for those in...

Understood, indeed the timestamp shouldn't be affected if it was a camcorder issue. Can't say I've noticed anything like that on my JVC VCRs but doesn't necessarily mean it's not there. Panasonic...

Based on my own JVCs, I find they all work just about if not the same in regards to picture and levels (tracking differs though). Lowering whites down to light-grey to accommodate superwhites, as you...

msgohan,
I always assumed this kind of AGC was caused by the camcorder at time of recording, rather than how the VCR is reading it. Commonplace in my experience, actually the tape I posted screen...

Sanlyn,
Thanks for posting your hardware / capture info. It doesn't look anything out of the ordinary however so I don't see how the ES10 issue could've been omitted. If you still own it though...

Spot on, I've experienced just the same. I don't think any one of my devices outputs the exact same range of luma. The DR-M10 though, as I said, is the best of the lot at reading levels. I bought a...

I'm sorry but I don't know what to tell you, this is the conclusion myself and others have reached. Using a proc amp after the ES10 will not restore the luma it internally clips off. That's just how...

Yes good question. I've read quite a bit on them at Gleitz but a bit difficult sometimes since I rely on Google Translate.

Based on what premiumcapture said though that is worrisome. I was...

For all intents and purposes, the DMR-ES10 is the line TBC, the frame sync (a function of external/full TBC) and the capture device all in one. The levels the ADVC...

Hi,
Been a while since I've posted here, hope you're all well.

Currently my setup includes the DMR-ES10 in passthrough for its monster TBC. The most rock-solid line correction and frame sync I've...
