ADVC300 - Bi-directional Analog / Digital Video Conversion

The ADVC300 is the ultimate bi-directional analog to digital video converter unit for the video enthusiast.

Three-year parts and labor limited warranty

Featuring high-quality image enhancement technology including digital noise reduction and image stabilization using Line Time Base Correction (LTBC), ADVC300 instantly cleans, stabilizes and preserves old VHS and Hi8 videos in clean DV format. Supporting Windows and Mac OS, ADVC300 is compatible with all widely used video editing applications including Canopus EDIUS, Final Cut Pro®, Avid Xpress® DV and Adobe® Premiere® Pro.

Bi-directional Analog / Digital Video Conversion
> Convert VHS, S-VHS and Hi8 analog videotapes to DV and back in one
   simple step
> Ideal for capturing and exporting analog video from leading video editing and    DVD authoring applications for Windows and Mac OS
> ADVC300 can be used as a stand-alone bi-directional analog / digital video    converter without needing a computer
> ADVC300 is compatible with all widely used DV and analog cameras and
   decks. High-quality component video output* is ideal for monitoring video using a    broadcast monitor

*Component output from ADVC300 requires a DV1 – BNC connector, sold separately

Intelligent Input/Output
ADVC300's intelligent usability allows for easy setup and connection in any video environment. Front and back I/O connectors provide analog and DV signal pass-through and ensure that connecting cables is neat and simple.

ADVC300 features color bar reference signal output and advanced analog input control software for adjusting brightness, contrast, saturation, hue and sharpness.

Proven DV codec Technology
At the heart of the ADVC300 is Canopus's proprietary DV codec chip providing the industry's best picture quality preservation during analog-to-DV and DV-to-analog conversion.

Clean, stabilize and preserve analog video
ADVC300 employs advanced 3D Y/C separation, 3D noise reduction and Line Time Base Correction (LTBC) functions for perfect frame synchronization. Poor analog source video is filtered and stabilized prior to DV conversion. ADVC300 is also ideal for “cleaning” old analog video and output back to analog tape.

Advanced image enhancement features
> 2D/3D Y/C separation - 2D Y/C separation separates Brightness (Y) and
   Chrominance (C) from the composite source signal by one frame. ADVC300's
   3D Y/C separation separates by cross-referencing each frame with the frames
   immediately in front and behind, further refining and improving the overall image
   quality. (NTSC only)

> Digital 3D noise reduction – Eliminates noise in the analog video signal by    detecting noise based on the characteristics

> Digital 3D frame synchronizer – Stores incoming signals into a frame buffer to    supply a stable, synchronized signal to the DV encoder chip
> Digital Line Time Base Corrector (LTBC) – Detects images with strong horizontal
   jitter and employs powerful correction methods to repair the jitter

> Digital Auto Gain Control (AGC) – Automatically adjusts the input video level
   for a clearer picture

Locked Audio Support
Other converters can lose audio/video sync when converting longer segments of video. ADVC300 supports locked audio when converting from analog to digital, assuring perfect audio and video synchronization.

Long product life
The broadest video equipment and editing software compatibility ensures ADVC300 provides a long product life and a high return on investment.
