Sorry, but this is mumbo-jumbo.  It has nothing at all to do
with tape speed, but with the frames not synchronizing.  The
device which makes this possible creates genlock, by using
a frequency generator to synchronize the two video feeds.

I don't think these are commonly available for camcorders.
They are, of course, readily available for professional
