Capturing Laserdiscs through Framemeister?
#1
So I'm kinda interested in retro gaming besides movies and I've stumbled upon this unit - Framemeister. It does a great job for playing retro consoles on new TVs. I was wondering if anyone ever tried plugging in Laserdisc player into them? The unit itself is very pricy and I don't think I'll get one anytime soon.

I'm skeptical that it could have an upscale algorithm that doesn't have any equal in the software realm. For realtime playback it sounds nice, but for capturin I don't quite see the purpose (yet?).

It doesn't even need to upscale actually, from what I understood, TV/Capture devices producers use low-end components for old inputs such as RGB/Composite. This unit actually has very high quality components that get the best out of your console. Upscaling is just an option in it's settings I think.

Oh, I see. So the appeal are good A/D converters? Why not then, if they are actually better than the equivalent in capture cards. Though I find it strange that an expensive capture card would use cheap components, but I suppose it's thinkable.

Do you know how these are for capturing VHS? Is there an internal TBC?
