Hi all,
I'm looking for a time base corrector, where is it possible to buy one (preferably in Australia or a company that delivers to Australia)? Also, is there a particular model that you would recommend? So far I've found that New Media and VideoGuys in Australia have the TV One 1T-TBC Time Base Corrector for 600 to 700AUD plus delivery. The AVT-8710 Time Base Corrector is available from Amazon.com.

I have several available, and I'll ship to Australia. I'll PM you in a bit.

You don't want a new 1T-TBC or CTB-100/AVT-8710. Both are Cypress TBCs, and use the same flawed chipsets. Frames randomly freeze. This is covered in the DOA thread. Anything made after 2010~2011 has this flaw. Only older versions of those are decent, are not sold new, and are not sold much second-hand.
