While researching this report I could not help but think of the movie 'Poltergeist' especially the part where the little girl was sitting in front of the TV saying "They're here". When Kara brought up this subject after watching an episode of 'Ghost Adventurers' it was very interesting to me. While ITC seems to encompass the whole electronic/technical ways to record paranormal happenings, this report is basically just about the video. I cannot explain exactly how the theory works, except it is very much the same idea as EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena), but using video equipment instead. And like EVPs, it takes sifting through the evidence afterward since it is not seen while the investigation is happening.

Instrumental Transcommunication (ITC) means that the messages coming from beyond will be received and/or stored by use of technical means.

ITC is the use of tape recorder, TVs, radios, computers, telephones, and other technical devices with the intent to get meaningful information from beyond in such forms as voices, images, and text.

EVP experimenting produced the first ITC contacts using a tape recorder and a simple microphone. Later on there occurred ITC contacts via telephone, computer, fax, special devices and so on.

The big advantage of ITC is the possibility to prove to others that something uncommon takes place. Not only the receiver of the messages, for example the medium, but also others could become a witness of these contacts. Almost everybody who is really interested in that phenomenon can get and with persistence will get EVP.

ITC is a method for attempting to record spirit or trans dimensional images on your TV using a video camera. The equipment needed are:

•    video camera
•    TV
•    cable to connect them
•    computer and software  (optional)

There are two methods for experimenting with ITC: the feedback method and the static method.

Feedback method
Connect the video camera directly to your television so that the TV is showing what the video camera is capturing. Set the video camera on a tripod or table of the appropriate height and aim the camera directly at the TV screen. Start recording.  This creates a video feedback loop and will result in some weird light patterns and images on the screen.


Tip: Be sure to lower or turn off the TV volume so you don't also have an audio feedback loop, which can be very loud and may even damage your speakers.  Watch the feedback. Some researchers claim to have seen faces and other images in this feedback. Because you're recording it, you can review the tape later.

Static method
For the static method, the video camera does not have to be connected to the TV.  Instead, tune your TV (or cable box) to an off-station, one that just shows static. (Some TVs show a blue screen on off-channels, so you may have to experiment to get a static screen.) Point the video camera at the static screen and record for as long as you want. You can watch for images while you're recording or watch the playback. The playback will allow you to pause or freeze-frame when you think you see something.

To best analyze the video, download it to your computer. This will require that your computer has video-capture capability and such software as Microsoft MovieMaker or Ulead Studio Pro, just to name two.

Capturing the video on your computer allows you to analyze it frame by frame. You can capture screens and zoom in on them to see if you can find any weird images or faces.  Some can be very small and need to be enlarged or seen on a large screen.

There were reports of even doing this procedure with crystals, water drops, and other such things.

I think this would be good to try in a particular active room where we could set this up for short period of times. I think short bursts of video, or maybe during a evp session, would be a great experiment to see if it provides us with additional evidence. While I am unsure if this is something we could show our clients as proof, i think it would be a cool thing to see how and if it works for us.
