At Scuba Tech Inc. video tape duplication is a daily
activity. We have 10 SVHS duplicator decks. Our decks are fed from a variety
of sources to permit duplication from most of the popular video formats.
Each source is time base corrected and monitored with a waveform and vectorscope
for exacting specifications. Audio is processed through a variety of equalizers
and volume levelers for superb stereo sound. Our distribution system
is Y/C capable allowing the highest video quality permitted with VHS,
especially when sourced from component betacam SP masters.
Additionally, we are capable of performing minor editing
in our duplication rack, a feature many duplication houses are incapable
of doing. In this process we can perform simple butt edits between split
masters because our duplicators are equipped with rotary erase heads and
can be cued up from frame accurate locations. No rainbow glitch or snowy
burst where these junctions or edits occur. We can feed the video sources
through a non-linear editor and add simple graphics and titles in the
duplication process. This is popular with producers wishing to send
out a screener tape with the words "SCREENER" added to the copies.
Split masters without a trace of the edit point?
No need for fades where the masters are split. Not a problem here. We have
two betacam SP feeder decks that are controlled by an edit controller.
The decks may be switched frame accurately for a seamless junction between
a two master sourced program. This allows us to duplicate T-160's with
a continuous non-stop program from 2 betacam SP 90 minute masters.
We also now source directly from our non-linear editor
for quick multiple VHS copies from a video edit project before we on-line
the master tape. This is popular with some of our post clients when they
need several VHS copies of an edit session "in progress" for
-----ANY SOURCE----------TO ANY DESTINATION---
No video is complete without proper labeling. We can provide
custom page layouts duplicated with simple laser printed avery style through
full color photographic quality full page slip covers and avery stick ons.
Page layouts and label designs are priced as a service separately, however
simple cassette avery label layouts for laser printed labels are included
with the price of cassette labeling. We can capture stills from your video
to print on the label which makes for a fine looking product.
