Canopus ADVC-700 Broadcast-quality Bidirectional Analog/Digital Video Conversion - £1189.00 xvat 


ADVC700 is a bidirectional analog/DV video converter with Canopus® PerfectSync technology to ensure impeccable conversion of every frame. A 19-inch breakout box with component video, composite, S-Video, and balanced and unbalanced audio I/O, ADVC700 offers high-end features including LTC input/output and RS422 signal conversion for professional VTR control.

Perfect Signal Synchronization: Canopus "PerfectSync"

ADVC700 not only incorporates the same video conversion technology present in the entire ADVC family of products, providing excellent reproduction of the source video footage, but also features PerfectSync technology. PerfectSync controls and synchronizes the transfer rate of IEEE 1394 communication with an external reference signal. This prevents skipped and duplicate frames and produces perfect conversion of all frames during analog/DV conversion.

Many of the current analog/DV converters adjust the output by skipping and/or duplicating frames in order to synchronize the DV signal to an external sync signal's frame frequency. In these converters, there is no guarantee that all input frames will output to DV accurately without frame repetition and/or frame drops. Since ADVC700 is primarily designed for studio environments, frame accuracy is essential for accurate offline/online editing. With PerfectSync, this is assured.

VTR Control by AV/C-RS422 Conversion
ADVC700 converts DV device control signals to RS422, to control an external VTR. Such control makes it possible to take in data from professional VTRs such as Digital Betacam from any standard DV editing software that features DV device control.   Click Canopus ADVC 700 if you wish to check stock before ordering.

Professional Video System Input
Reference input and LTC input/output can be utilized to create a professional video editing system with editors or switchers.

  • Reference Input
  • LTC input/output
  • Reciprocal TC conversions (LTC, VITC, DV TC)

Analog Video Input Filtering
ADVC700 also features built-in analog filtering technology to improve the quality of analog video input during conversion. Filtering options include 3D Y/C separation, 3D noise reduction, 2D Y and 2D C noise reduction, black/white gain adjust and horizontal/vertical outline enhancement.

At the heart of ADVC700 is the innovative Canopus DV codec chip, providing the industry's highest picture quality preservation during analog-to-DV conversion and locked audio support for perfect audio and video synchronization at all times.

Advanced Usability
ADVC700 is quickly configurable. The front-side dial and LCD display feature controls for Video and Audio I/O selection, aspect ratio, audio sample rates, audio delay, reference sync, RS422 control, color bar output, PerfectSync adjustments and more.

ADVC700 can operate as a stand-alone device not requiring a computer, while keeping any preprogrammed settings.
