MACROVISION INTRODUCES VIDEO TILT CORRECTOR; VTC-100 CORRECTS TILT DISTORTION OF TRANSMITTED VIDEO SIGNALS

 LAS VEGAS, April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Macrovision introduced its VTC-100 Video Tilt Corrector today at the National Association of Broadcasters trade show. The VTC-100 is an operator-controlled video line tilt correction unit for use in terrestrial microwave, satellite and other transmission circuits which require compensation.
 Adjustment of the VTC-100's panel controls provides two-stage compensation to eliminate frequency response problems that cause pulse distortions in a video signal path. Separate controls allow alteration of bar tilt and time constants. By-pass switches enable the user to remove the complete correction network from the signal path at any time.
 The VTC-100 is useful in minimizing video-scrambling artifacts caused by low-frequency response deviations associated with microwave and satellite links between a line cut-and-rotate or video scrambler and descrambler. The system can also improve pulse response of other video equipment, such as VTRs and VCRs. "Companies that strive to achieve the highest quality standards in their video operations will find the VTC-100 an effective and easy-to-operate compensation system," said Whit Jackson, Macrovision's vice president of Video Encryption Technologies.
 The VTC-100 chassis contains provisions for up to four separate tilt compensation units allowing for equalization of four independent video sources simultaneously. The system is compatible with PAL, NTSC and SECAM video formats and is supplied in a 19-inch rack mount form occupying one unit of panel height. The VTC-100 is priced at $1,200 (US) for a single-tilt compensation unit and chassis. Each additional tilt compensation unit in a single chassis is $400. Systems are available 30 days ARO.
