Equipment for Sale
All equipment is pulled from a working environment and guaranteed not D.O.A. unless otherwise noted.
All items plus shipping (via the carrier of your choice. ) or available for pickup.

DPS TBC-III Digital Time Base Corrector and Proc. Amp $100.00
This is a frame-store (infinite window) time base corrector that was used with a NewTek Video Toaster video editing system. It will work with any NTSC video signal in any video setup. It's in excellent condition and fully functional.

This card can be powered via any ISA slot in a PC (or it can be installed in an ISA slot in an Amiga computer.) It doesn't actually use the computer, it just draws power from the slot to run the card. It is remote controllable via a serial port from an Amiga or a PC (either the one that is powering it or a different one) or via an optional hardware control panel. I have the PC and Amiga versions of the control software and will include it with this card. I also have a copy of the owner's manual and will include that also. The serial connection to these units can be daisy-chained for control of multiple units from one host computer.

Here's a link to some more information I found on the web:
