This is a bundle of used videography equipment that was given to me by my brother. I have not had the chance to learn to use any of it. From what I can tell it looks like all the parts and pieces are there.
Here is a description of all that this bundle contains:

VIDEONICS DIRECTED PLUS
The Personal Movie Maker
With DirectED PLUS, anyone with a camcorder can make great videos! More than just a video editor, DirectED PLUS adds spectacular titles, graphics, and special effects to your videos.
DirectED PLUS turns your camcorder and VCR into an automated editing studio! It allows you to turn your camcorder footage into polished productions-by remote control!
Start by making a copy of your original. Then use the Videonics remote to mark and name your favorite scenes. DirectED PLUS will remember thousands of scenes!
Make a simple production from the scenes in one original. Or go Hollywood, using scenes from many originals, arranged as you’d like, with dazzling special effects! You’re the director and the producer with DirectED PLUS!

Use graphics to add flair to your videos! DirectED PLUS includes 20 brilliant graphics and you can add more with Videonics Graphics Libraries. Choose graphics designed for family occasions, weddings, travel, business, or other uses.
DirectED PLUS provides 17 different cuts, fades, and wipes.
WORKS WITH YOUR VCR!
DirectED PLUS works with the equipment you already own. It’s compatible with all videotape formats (VHS, Beta, 8-mm, Super VHS, etc.) and equipment from most manufacturers. All you need is a VCR with wireless remote control and a camcorder or second VCR.
EASY TO USE!
DirectED PLUS comes with a simple wireless remote control. Choose what you want to do from on-screen menus. Everything is detailed in a clear, easy to read manual. And a touch of the red “HELP” key provides an on-screen explanation.
Once you have maked and arranged your screnes and added titles and graphics, DirectED PLUS takes over! It tellyou what to do and when. Een if a movie takes hours to produce, DirectED PLUS manages the whoe task-all you to do is insert the correct tapes, rewind, and press PLAY.
The quality of your movies will be outstanding. All movies are made directly from the original tapes, not from a “working copy”. The graphics, text, backgrounds, fades, and wipes are digitally generated by the built-in video computer so they’re crisp, clear, and colorful.

Recoton “Producer Series” V615 Stereo Color Processor
The Recoton “Producer Series” V615 Stereo Color Processor sets new standards of technical excellence and ease of use as it allows you to produce up to four high quality video tape copies simultaneously from one original. Unique in a single F.C.C. approved unit, controls and functions normally found in broadcast studio units costing literally thousands of dollars more.
These controls and features allow you to control the color, contrast, tint, detail, and stability of video tapes you wish to duplicate or record off the air.

VIDEONICS VIDEO EQUALIZER
3 CHANNEL AUDIO MIXER
Add music or narration to your videotapes. Three controls allow you to independently adjust the sound from a microphone, a music source, and the original videotape. Music and VCR sound channels are stereo.
Position the movable split-screen line in an area of interest. The right side shows the enhanced and corrected image; the left side shows the unaltered image for comparison.
Advanced capabilities give your videos a professional touch. Convert the screen to black-and-white. Colorize the black-and-white image for special effects. Switch to color negative. Create color bars for repeatable, accurate settings.
Use the sharpness control to sharpen the edges of objects for clearer video copies. A separate, independent control reduces the snowy effects of video noise. The noise reduction and sharpness circuits are all digital, for the best possible picture.
Works with all VCRs and camcorders. Works with all video formats-VHS, Beta, 8mm, Hi8, Super-VHS, and ED-Beta.
Brightness and contrast controls provide better adjustment than those on most television sets. Use these controls to “fade to black.”
Color and Tint:
Boost the color to punch up dull video. Reduce it to subdue overly vivid scenes. Use the tint control to shift the colors in the entire scene-warm up a blue picture, adjust the white balance, remove an orange tint, etc.
Two outputs for more flexibility. Allows you to make two recordings at once.
Adjust some of the colors in a scene without affecting others with the digital colorizer. Use the “paintbrush” controls to position an on-screen “target” on the color you want to change. Use the “size” control to determine how many colors you want to change -a narrow brush affects only a narrow range of similar colors, a wide brush affects only a narrow range of similar colors, a wide brush affects more of the screen. Then adjust the re-green-blue color controls. You have full, independent control of all three of the primary television colors.
