Q- Why is very important to use high quality equipment when converting tapes from NTSC to PAL system or vice versa?
A- This process is far more complex than putting 2 VCRs together and converting from one system to another. As a brief explanation, it is a process to convert 525 TV lines to 625 European TV lines. If the proper equipment is not used when converting the video, motion artifacts may occur, brightness and color temperature will change and as a result the colors will shift. We use the same high end converters as in some major TV stations which helps to eliminate the above problems. Our genlock capability converters allow us to adjust vertical and horizontal parameters, and the time base corrector (TBC) will correct time base errors which normally occurs when transferring analog signals to digital format
