DataVideo TBC-5000 Time Base Corrector - 4 input- TBC [TGP-1396]

Used. Refurbished, in top working condition! - A very high quality time base corrector (TBC) for improving the quality of video signals! Use this time base corrector when transferring tapes to digital. It will give an added "purity" and stability to the signal, and reduce the shimmering or wiggling you see in vertical lines (such as a doorway frame or flagpole). If you're a stickler for details, this will bring out the best in your tape-to-digital transfers!

Four outputs allow you to process four video sources independently, with the one piece of equipment! It's like owning four time base correctors!  If you choose, you can also program it to switch four inputs to one output.
