Using camcorder pass-through vs. ADVC device for Sony Vegas capture/external preview
on Jul 17, 2015 at 11:52:56 pm

Hi all,
I have been offered a functional Sony DSR-PD150 and would like to use it as a DV pass-through device for capturing from and outputting to analog devices. Is anybody still using pass-through on a camcorder and would like to comment on the signal quality when compared to a dedicated capture device like the Canopus ADVC devices? Thanks in advance.

It should be just as good as the ADVC-100 but not as good as the ADVC-300 with TBC. If you weren't going to spend the money for the ADVC-300 or you don't need Time Base Correction, then go for it. It should work great.

Thanks John, I did expect that camcorder DV pass-through would perform a bit under the ADVC devices but I do hope that the camera being a 3CCD model, the quality of its converter should be good.

You're welcome. Lots of people use a DV cameras pass thru for analog conversions so you should be fine.
