> Proven DV Codec Technology
   At the heart of the TwinPact100 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 and Enhance Analog Video
TwinPact100 employs advanced 3D Y/C separation and 3D noise reduction
   functions for enhancing analog video quality. Poor analog source video is filtered    prior to DV conversion to provide better quality video.

> Advanced Image Enhancement Features
- 2D/3D Y/C separation – Separates the Y/C (S-Video) signal to RGB using       chronological information between signals (applicable for NTSC only)

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

> Locked Audio Support
   Other converters can lose audio/video sync when converting longer segments of    video. TwinPact100 supports locked audio when converting from analog to digital,    assuring perfect audio and video synchronization.
