The TBC-5000 Time Base Corrector/Matrix Switcher from Datavideo is a four-channel unit that is well suited for small studio setups and simple switching applications where video signals may need to be stabilized or synchronized. It is designed to accept either composite (BNC) or S-video (Y/C) inputs and replace poor time base signals or sync track errors in videotape playback.

It can also be used to allow synchronization of up to four asynchronous video signals when used with a house-sync, genlock, or blackburst signal generator. This solution is ideal for use in setups with other products such as the Datavideo DVK-100 standalone chromakey solution, an analog-to-digital converter, or an analog video capture card.

This unit is a genlock time base corrector with four inputs and four outputs
The matrix switcher is controllable via RS-232
It offers three mode settings:4 inputs/4 outputs, 4 inputs/2 outputs, and 4 inputs/1 output
Cascade two TBC-5000s to achieve up to 8 input and 8 outputs

      Comments about Datavideo TBC-5000 Time Base Corrector/Matrix Switcher:

      I needed a minimum of four TBC-Framesync for our ENG truck to time-up cameras. Before could only use one camera and No live production capabilities to have multiple cameras. Datavideo's TBC-5000 fit the bill for multiple function and compact design for any ENG truck.
