Elmo TransVideo TRV-16


On offer is ONE (1) used Elmo TransVideo TRV-16 film-to-video conversion machine, as shown in the photos (actual unit.)

This unit is basically functional; however, we are listing it as "non-working" in since it requires service and is not peforming to manufacturer's specs. Known issues:

  • The CCD video module is producing a mediocre image with somewhat weak coloration.
  • The plastic spindle hub on the rear reel arm is cracked (the spindle is still rock-solid at this time but may eventually become unstable if the crack progresses.)
  • The belts require replacement.
The chassis, motor, and general mechanicals all seem very good. Film feeds smoothly in both directions. The controls work as they should. The lens and film gate on this unit appear to be stock, unmodified, and in excellent condition.The optical audio is clear and bright (we could not test the magnetic.) Cosmetically there is a bit of superficial surface wear -- mainly on the decorative metallic plating on the front panels -- but no cracks, fractures, or other significant damage. There are no asset ID engravings or markings.

It may be fine as-is for basic applications such as running non-archival conversions of black and white footage, we suggest the buyer would want to have this machine overhauled & upgraded to hi-res video, which -- though not cheap -- is still a very cost-effective way to end up with the kind of video output that only a fully integrated telecine unit can deliver. One company that advertises professional TransVideo upgrade services on its website is Urbanski Film, located near Chicago.

The screenshots above are unenhanced digital photos of the analog video signal from this machine as displayed on a large-screen HDTV, with all picture adjustments set at neutral/default.

Sold as-is and configured exactly as you see it in the photos, along with a copy of the basic instruction manual. Nothing else is included. Both the film-illumination and exciter lamps are functioning at this time, however we cannot guarantee the filaments will be intact upon arrival. Note that this machine is permanently hardwired for 120VAC power only.

Please read the important information below before offerding. This sale may end at any time, so don't plan on waiting til the last minute!
