View Full Version : Fwd: VCR showing both fields : summary

Last week I asked about field capable VCRs.
The bulk of the responses recommended the Panasonic AG-7350
Other choices were Panasonic AG-4700, AG-6200, MD-830, AG-DS840,
AG-DS850, and DV2000, which is a miniDV VCR.
Note : Not all of these models are still being made.

For more information on field capable VCRs, here is an explanation
from James Carollo:
>NTSC video requires that fields 16.7ms apart be interlaced into odd
>and even fields
>(odd fields are the odd numbered scan lines, even the even numbered
>scan lines).
>Presented together, they comprise a frame, 33.3ms apart (30Hz). Most consumer
>and industrial level VCRs present slow-motion as individual fields, but they
>skip either the even or odd field. For example, if they begin with an odd
>field, then the correponding even field is shown next, but then all
>successive fields are even (sequence odd, even, even, even, ...). You have
>to get into much more expensive broadcast or animation decks to be field

Thanks to all those who responded.
