    yes and yes.

    considering it's an antique, you'll find very little about it anywhere in
    cyberspace.

    what exactly do you want to know?

    Wondering of it adds too much artifacting to a signal to use on cable just
    doing straight cuts. I just need something that cuts fairly clean to switch
    3 composite DV cameras.

    it wasn't a bad switcher in it's day. quite clean on most things (forget
    chromakey!!). the only problem i see is genlocking it to your cameras?

    it requires sync for clean cuts...

    which cameras are you going to use?

    I'll be using one JVC DV-500 with sync but the others are consumer DV
    cameras. With it being composite I thought it didn't need sync. It takes RCA
    Jacks or S-video only.

    I'll only be using it for straight cuts to a master tape so my editing
    process will speed up instead of editing 3 different iso cameras which takes
    up a lot of time.

    This is the only one I have found that will take 3 cameras (which I need).

    The sync issue is new to be with this switcher since I though it was
    internal in the switcher since it's composite. I don't see where sync would
    go into this switcher.

    Thanks for the help.

    oopps. i think i might have confused us a bit! i was thinking of the old
    sony seg 2000, not the 1000, with which i'm unfamilar. however, that said,
    does it have inputs for sync? if not, you're probably fine using it as a
    simple composite mixer.

    anyway, to be safe, is there anyway of connecting a couple of cameras and a
    monitor to give it a test run?

    better safe than sorry...

    No input for sync. Composite only and I have no way to test it.

    I was hoping it would just do clean cuts...that's all I need, no dissolves
    or special effects (I do all that in post).

    Thanks for the help!

    Without all of the devices in the chain being synched together,
    I wouldn't expect to even get clean cuts. Some prosumer switchers
    have built-in frame synchronizers that will allow just about anything
    to be plugged in without an external source, but that gives you an
    extra A/D - D/A cycle, plus a frame or more of delay in the video.
    Most people wouldn't notice the loss of lip-sync at this level, but
    if you loose much more than that along the way, it does become
    quite noticeable.

    I don't know that specific switcher, but most switchers of that
    vintage had provisions to either provide it's internal sync to the
    other devices connected to the system, or (at minimum) the
    ability to receive external sync from the external source that is
    being fed to the other devices (sometimes both options are
    available.

    Neither of these options are of any use with consumer/prosumer
    cameras like the XL-1, or VX-2000. You need more serious
    pro cameras that have external synch inputs, plus you need a
    waveform monitor/vectorscope and an engineer that knows
    how to use them to get all of the cameras and other equipment
    matched up.
