Part of the affordable Betacam SP 2000 PRO series, the PVW2600 is a versatile editing player that is easy to integrate with the BVW series of products and peripherals as well as other editing systems. Featuring built-in TBC, built-in TC reader, 24 times picture search, RS-422 remote interface, Y/C output and component video (Y, R-Y, B-Y) outputs, the PVW2600 combines superior picture performance with flexibility and control. In addition, it will playback Betacam or Betacam SP recorded tapes, with playback times over 90 minutes.
High speed picture search
Built-in time base corrector
Built-in time code reader
High audio quality
Longer playback time
RS-422A serial interface (9-pin)
Following outputs: Y/R-Y/B-Y, composite video, U-matic DUB signal, S-video
TBC remote control
Picture search can be made at various speeds over a range of up to 24 times normal speed in forward and reverse by using the search dial mode incorporated on the unit. A recognizable color picture can be obtained at up to 10 times (24 times in monochrome) normal speed in forward and reverse. In the jog mode, tape movement accurately follows the rotation of the search dial in both directions.
Provided for versatile editing system expansion and flexible system control.
This format uses component recording, for which the chrominance signals (R-Y, B-Y) are time compressed and recorded on one track, using the CTDM (Compressed Time Division Multiplex) system originally developed by Sony, while the luminance signal is recorded on a separate track.
Thanks to the tape speed of the format and the adoption of the proven Dolby C-type NR, the PVW2600 offers high quality audio with a wide dynamic range even at high frequencies, minimum distortion and excellent S/N ratio.
Both L-size and S-size cassettes are accepted, giving playback times of over 90 minutes and over 30 minutes respectively.
A superior quality output video is obtained directly from the PVW2600, with no additional time base correction required. Advanced, high quality digital dropout compensation also ensures consistent picture performance.
The reading capability of both VITC and LTC to the SMPTE format, together with user bits, is standard.
A built-in character generator is provided, allowing characters to be superimposed on either the signal from Video Output 3 or the Monitor Output. It displays either time code reader data or CTL timer data. VTR function status, including shuttle tape speed, can also be displayed by accessing the setup menu. Furthermore, error number and status can be automatically displayed when the error is detected. Character display is On/Off switchable from the subcontrol panel. When the unit is operated under the setup menu mode, the initial setup menu is automatically displayed from the character generator.
