Home VCRs are not designed to produce high quality copies of video tapes and you will usually get poor results when making copies of your favourite tapes. By adding a small amount of high frequency boost to the video signal, this degradation can be reduced and a better copy obtained. Picture quality & stability can be further enhanced by removing the "piggyback" information that broadcasters and videotape producers sometimes add to the basic video signal, eg. vertical interval test signals (VITS), Teletext and a range of other "extra signals". The stabiliser feature of this unit is designed to remove as many of these extra signals as possible to produce a cleaner, better quality PAL composite video signal for recording or viewing. Mains plug pack and RCA cable supplied.
This nifty little device used to be widely available for right around a hundred bucks both online and locally at places like CompUSA, Best Buy, etc. but seems to have almost completely disappeared during the past couple of months.
My guess is that the movie studios probably exerted huge legal pressure on Sima, due to the fact that word was getting out to too many people about just how effective this thing really is!
