Canopus Announces Advanced DV Converter for DV EditingADVC-100 supports NTSC, PAL, S-video and composite video formats and features the award-winning Canopus DV codec (October 11, 2001)
To deliver the highest quality video, the ADVC-100 features Canopus's DV codec technology, which is found in Avid's Xpress DV software and the full line of Canopus DV capture cards. On the audio front, the ADVC-100 is the first inexpensive DV converter that supports locked audio when converting from analog to digital, assuring perfect audio and video synchronization. For greater convenience, the ADVC-100 provides a 4-pin DV jack on the front panel, a 6-pin FireWire jack on back and analog input connectors on both front and back.
"The ADVC-100 addresses the issues, major and minor, such as video quality, audio/video synchronization and convenient connections," said Robert Sharp, vice president of marketing at Canopus. "Other converters can lose audio/video synchronization when converting from analog to DV on long clips. Our locked audio feature combined with the Canopus DV codec, delivers the highest-quality video and audio output - with perfect synchronization. Add the convenience of both front and back panel connections and an affordable price, and the ADVC-100 is the perfect choice for video editors."
The ADVC-100 will be available in December 2001 from Canopus authorized dealers for a suggested retail price of $299.
