How to handle a low quality video source?
Published:2014-06-26 16:37:52

Sometimes the video/audio source is of poor quality (high generation tape, old source, misadjusted tape, etc.) In this case, signal correction prior to duplication is needed. First, the problem should be defined with as much clarity as possible. If the image is very unstable, a TBC (time base corrector) should be installed between the source and the DA. If instability is minor, then a Sync or Black Burst restorer may be inserted in the signal path between the source and the DA. If the sharpness, brightness, contrast or color is wrong, a video processor should be installed in series with the signal path. This is done in the following way: Connect the output of the video/audio source to the input of the video processor. Connect the output of the video processor to the input of the DA. Connect all video acceptors to the outputs of the DAs. Use the controls of the video processor to correct and adjust the image. Please keep the following in mind: Always keep the video/audio sources as close as possible to the video processor. Always use a video processor with a screen splitter for fast and accurate enhancement.
