I have a very unique recording of historical value (for us) I have to rescue on DV.
There are many technical errors on the Tape which I can't change and would therefore accept.
But the DV-Deck produces complete dropouts and much heavier errors as there are visible on my source VHS tape. I guess the "sync" is lost or something like that. Whats the way to get I over to DV as it looks when viewed on a simple VHS player. There you've got flashes but no complete dropouts.
In effect you need a Time Base Corrector to achieve this. There are many products on the market that can take an analogue source and give a stable DV output via firewire to feed into a none linear editing system or even a DV camera. There are equally as many that can give an analogue output too.
We regularly use an ADC 100, which has analogue (composite and s-video) in and out and DV in and out.
