Can anyone verify if Canopus's claim of locked audio (http://www.canopuscorp.com/ppt_advc100.htm) (perfect audio & video syncing) is unique only to their product?

I've used the first Director's Cut (not the Take 2) for 8 months so far and I haven't noticed any audio lag.

OTOH, I've never captured more than 30 minutes of DV at a time...

You'll notice that the DCut is conspicuously absent from their comparison chart.

Final Cut Pro has something similar called auto-sync compensation that marks an audio block to a corresponding frame so that if your capture audio drifts, it will match it up when that clip is moved into the canvas. When I used to use built-in a/v for capture, it would be obviously out of sync at 1 hour+, and FCP always fixed it.
