Betacam SP UVW series
From Encyclopedia PRO
The Betacam SP UVW series was the first series of budget machines. Heralded as 'Betacam for the masses' the launch of the UVW series brought the Betacam SP format within reach of many who until then had been unable to afford the high cost of the Betacam SP UVW series machines. The UVW machines lack many of the advanced features of the BVW series, such as AFM audio tracks, Dynamic tracking and VITC (Virtical Interval Time Code).
