You can still see all customer reviews for the product. Top positive review. Reviewed in the United States on October 31, For years, I've sought a usable solution for converting videotapes to digital video. I've tried a number of units ranging from cheap don't bother with them to moderately expensive still lots of problems.
The ADVC is the first and only unit I've used that converts lengthy videotapes without losing synch between picture and audio. It is flawless. I have used it with computers running an Intel Dual Core 2. The results are perfect on every machine.
Perhaps best of all, the ADVC has tools in its own hardware to work a number of adjustments on the incoming signal. If your tapes are worn or poorly exposed or just old, this capability effect changes can be a lifesaver.
I haven't had a need to use these capabilities yet, which are by the way, controllable by Canopus supplied software. The supplied manual is on the terse side, but it does explain what you need to know. In any event, with controls like these, you're going to learn by experimentation. Yes, the unit is expensive. Very expensive. But it you want digital copies of your videotapes that will match or even exceed the originals if the originals are sub-par and want video and audio that are perfectly synched, I know of no other option.

Zero setup with iMovie 06 and iDVD I use it some with iMovie 11 too. This is a prosumer deck. The time code function is alone worth the price if you have old analog footage. ADVC is for anyone who wants to do editing and is concerned about quality of color and speed, for the novice it is an incredible gizmo that will restore VHS tapes to a state close to the original fixing midtones, highlights and shadows on the fly.
Not only can you simply convert analog to digital you can actually manipulate the signal going in if you want to. I decided against sending my tapes via an online service to get converted to a DVD and bought this particular device.
I did this so that I could have digital copy of the video files. I decided to purchase this device over much cheaper analogue to USB devices because I have heard that those devices do not correct for audio syncing issues like the AVDC I have had this device for about a month now and have had no problems with it.
I also feel the software that comes with the device is pretty cool. You can adjust for brightness, contract, saturation hue and sharpness level, before you capture the video feed to your computer. At least for me, I found this very useful because it allowed me to not edit so much in video editing software.
Overall I think this is a great product and I would recommend this product to anyone especially if it is more cost - effective to buy the device to convert analogue to digital than to get it done via a service that does.
Initially purchased a Pinnacle product that was a complete waste of money. My objective was to capture old VHS tapes but the quality on playback was poor. The picture would tear occasionally, OR jitter. This product was mentioned many times and it WORKED straight out of the box, however the instructions could be much better.
Worthwhile playing with the settings in the ADVC software before actually capturing digitally. Because improvements in video quality were easy to achieve with the old VHS tapes I was converting. Managed to improve white on wedding video, and no frames dropped.
Obviously you can not improve the original capture, but in my opinion you can restore to at least the original quality. I have the less expensive version of this unit at home and needed one at my work. I am glad I did. It has more controls than my ADVC unit, so that I can adjust video and audio as I am copying videos from one format to another. I don't think I have explored all of the adjustments that I can make to my videos yet, but the unit is doing what I need to have done.
I am very happy with this unit. It is doing exactly what I needed perfectly. I am getting high quality transfers to my computer of my old VHS tape home movies recorded back starting in I ended up setting all of the noise, color and contrast corrections to minimal effect settings after playing around with them.
I decided that I wasn't sure how to set them or that I liked the effects and figured I could do all that with movie editing software later. Some of my movies taken indoors with insufficient light had a greenish cast but the single hue control on the ADVC did not correct it satisfactorily.
I think separate RGB controls would be needed but again I can correct that in my movie editing software. My main concern was to get a good transfer quickly because the tape was deteriorating and I didn't want to chance damaging it by trying different settings and multiple playbacks. Maybe later I can play around more with the controls once I have a first transfer of everything secured.
My main concern was instability in the time base due to tape stretching over the years that was causing the video to break up and "hook" at the top; the internal time base correction of the ADVC corrected that nicely. The digital output is Firewire IEEE which is fine because that is the connection I have on my computer that my my present digital video camcorder uses and my DV capture software uses. Once I upgrade to a newer computer I will need to add a Firewire card to continue using this product since Firewire connections seem to have been dropped on recent computer models.
You need it if you want to digitize analog video. Will even get around old VCR copy protection and hold horizontal sync when everything is tearing. Thank you. Did the job that I wanted it to do. Converted all my old video to digital so that I could publish online. Straightforward with no glitches to date. One person found this helpful. Works as advertised, allows for a lot of enhancement of the video.
I did not buy it because of audio issues, but was very impressed that the audio is much improved. Price is a bit high, but sometimes you have to pay more for better technology.
