"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

Bi-directional Analog / Digital Video Conversion
– Convert VHS, S-VHS and Hi8 analog videotapes to DV and back in one simple step
– Ideal for capturing and exporting analog video from leading video editing and DVD authoring applications for Windows and Mac OS
– ADVC300 can be used as a stand-alone bi-directional analog / digital video converter without needing a computer
– ADVC300 is compatible with all widely used DV and analog cameras and decks. High-quality component video output* is ideal for monitoring video using a broadcast monitor

Intelligent Input/Output
ADVC300's intelligent usability allows for easy setup and connection in any video environment. Front and back I/O connectors provide analog and DV signal pass-through and ensure that connecting cables is neat and simple.

ADVC300 features color bar reference signal output and advanced analog input control software for adjusting brightness, contrast, saturation, hue and sharpness.

Proven DV codec Technology
At the heart of the ADVC300 is Canopus's proprietary DV codec chip providing the industry's best picture quality preservation during analog-to-DV and DV-to-analog conversion.

Clean, stabilize and preserve analog video
ADVC300 employs advanced 3D Y/C separation, 3D noise reduction and Line Time Base Correction (LTBC) functions for perfect frame synchronization. Poor analog source video is filtered and stabilized prior to DV conversion. ADVC300 is also ideal for “cleaning” old analog video and output back to analog tape.

Advanced image enhancement features
– 2D/3D Y/C separation - 2D Y/C separation separates Brightness (Y) and Chrominance (C) from the composite source signal by one frame. ADVC300's 3D Y/C separation separates by cross-referencing each frame with the frames immediately in front and behind, further refining and improving the overall image quality. (NTSC only)

Locked Audio Support
Other converters can lose audio/video sync when converting longer segments of video. ADVC300 supports locked audio when converting from analog to digital, assuring perfect audio and video synchronization.

Long product life
The broadest video equipment and editing software compatibility ensures ADVC300 provides a long product life and a high return on investment.
