Test Media

This area used to provide test files for Drastic software, but the links have all been removed, since the files were ancient and hence not particularly useful.

Combining Multiple Audio/Video Channels

Drastic Digital Disk Recorders that include more than one channel of HD or SD I/O (VVW 5002/3/4, VVW 7002, Typhon 2) may be used to combine some or all of the inputs and outputs into a single control channel. In this state only one channel appears to the RS-422, GUI or network control system, but when media is recorded or played, two or more channels of I/O are run locked together.  Please note:  This article has been superseded and it is here for reference only.

Up And Down Converter Setup
