Thread: Does this hardware exist?

    Default Does this hardware exist?

    I am a novice/intermediate prosumer editor. I have a need for a piece of equipment, but I don't know what it's called or if it exists.

    Basically, I want a tape deck for my DV tapes through which I can do all my batch captures. I don't want to use my camcorders anymore, since (A) they are typically being used and (B) I don't want the to put the wear and tear of fast-forwarding/rewinding on the camera itself.

    Do you know what this equipment is called? Also, if you have a suggestion of a good, cheaper priced model, I would appreciate that as well.

    Thanks so much.

    Yes -and me too.

    Two soloutions - consumer dv decks do appear on e bay but thay are sought after and usually go for around 500 quid. Pro decks are way too expensive for most of us.

    Sony make a very popular small portable player with a screen - this is the soloution I am after as it is more 'prosumer' and goes for 250 to 400 s/h, and it's portable - will dig out the model number and post it if you cant find it.

    The other soloution is to get a cheap camera and use that for capturing - nowhere near so cool.

    Also check JVC, I remember seeing a deck they brought out a few years ago, it might have been a combi deck with VHS included. Useful for digitising analogue tapes, it might have had Firewire on it aswell.
