Significant Advantage
Perhaps the most significant advantage of the AP41 over other TBCs is its functional efficiency. The processing amplifier controls are prestable. Each control has a maximum useful dynamic range. Front panel buttons select different operational modes.
AP41-SW: AP41 plus Wide bandwidth Comb Filter.
AP41-SF: AP41 plus S-VHS output, Freeze Frame/Field, Y/C Adjustment and Strobe (16 speeds).
AP41-SP: AP41-SF plus Comb Filter (Full bandwidth in all modes) S-VHS output, Freeze Frame/Field and Strobe.

AP41-SP-U: AP41-SP plus upgradable to SDI output.

AP41-SP-D: AP41-SP plus SDI output.

AP41-VP: Composite Input/Output with wide bandwidth comb filter and no vertical resolution loss in frame sync mode.
