Sony Betacam SP BVW-50 portable recorder/player with built-in TBC.

The BVW-50 may be operated as a standalone Recorder/Player/Feed Machine or when interfaced with a 26-Pin cable to a camera system as a field recorder. Confidence playback allows simultaneous playback of audio and video during recording. The BVW-50 is provided with a Sony 9-pin remote control interface (RS-422) which allows connections to Betacam SP studio VTRs so that it can be used as a player VTR.

When used with metal particle tape videocassettes, the BVW-50 conforms to the Betacam SP recording format with its wide luminance bandwidth, improved signal-to-noise ratio, and other superior key parameters. When used with oxide tape videocassettes, recordings conform to the conventional Betacam format.

Although the BVW-50 provides a recording and playback time of over 90 minutes and has a built-in TBC capability, its power consumption has been drastically reduced. The BVW-50 incorporates a front access mechanism, and this has enabled the BVW-50 to have a one-piece top panel made of high strength diecast magnesium with no moving parts.

Standard broadcast video output can be obtained directly from the BVW-60 with no additional time base correction required. For easy maintenance and service the BVW-60 is provided with comprehensive self-diagnostics.
