operate in this fashion. It is not a bet that I would be willing to make.
In a believable way.
Just so we know how a camcorder adds date/time it's done after the fact to the analog video since many want it off or on depending on their needs.
To add a corrected date time after the fact we only need a date time generator and a GENLOCK box.
Here's what the camcorder does internally:
1. Produces analog video and
2. Overlays it with date and time plus other info as set by the controls on the camcorder.
If we had the wrong date time in the camcorder when we recorded and we wanted to produce a tape with the right date time we can do that with.
1. The analog output from the camcorder.
2. A video source with the new date time.

This is very cheap to implement and along with now common off the shelf tools is much easier than it was prior to 2000 when we first did this frame by frame.
