1-1 Features 1-1-1 Features of the DVW-A500/1, A500P/1, 500/1 and 500P/1 The DVW-A500/1, A500P/1, 500/1, and 500P/1 Digital Videocassette Recorders adopt the Digital Betacam format, and are differentiated as follows: • The DVW-A500/1 and DVW-A500P/1 are capable of playing back analog Betacam and Betacam SP format cassette tapes. • The DVW-500/1 and DVW-500P/1 are not compatible with either the analog Betacam or Betacam SP formats. The DVW-A500/1 and 500/1 can be used in the NTSC color system while the DVW-A500P/1 and 500P/1 can be used in the PAL color system, though they both adopt a component format. Digital Betacam Format The DVW-A500/1 series and DVW-500/1 series adopt the newly developed Digital Betacam format as an extension of the Betacam/Betacam SP format. The Digital Betacam format makes the most of the available recording area to achieve high-quality digital recording, while maintaining analog Betacam tape playback compatibility. The following have been developed for this purpose: • Coefficient recording system • Powerful error correction system • High-quality precision heads and drum with DT® (Dynamic Tracking) heads • New auto tracking system Together, these allow 120 minutes or more of recording time on half-inch Digital Betacam (L-size) cassettes the same size as those for conventional Betacam and Betacam SP. Overview of digial signal processing Digital video signal processing is based on the 4:2:2 component digital D-1 format and CCIR 601 standard quantization. In addition, the data rate is compressed with the coefficient recording system. Digital audio signals are processed in full bits conforming to the AES/EBU format. Input interface The component serial digital interface, conforming to SMPTE 259M/EBU T.3267/CCIR 656-III standards, handles component video signals and 4-channel digital audio signals with a single BNC coaxial cable. Both analog component signals and composite signals (with the BKDW-505/506) are digitized into CCIR 601 standard parallel data. Audio data from the AES/EBU digital interface or A/D converted data from analog input can be selected for recording. Bit rate reduction encoder Video data are suppressed to about half by a newly developed coefficient recording system, whose key processes include field shuffling, blocking, DCT (Discrete Cosine Transform), quantizing, and variable length coding. ECC encoder The outer ECC (Error Correction Code) is added to the compressed video and audio data, followed by the inner ECC, ID data, and sync data. The Reed Solomon code is employed in this error correction system. Channel coding Video and audio data with the ECC added are recorded in the form of serial data. The Digital Betacam format adopts a scrambled NRZI channel coding system that is superior in off-track and noise characteristics. Playback signal processing The playback digital data are equalized by auto EQ circuits and error-corrected by powerful inner and outer ECC, which can correct most data disturbed by noise and dropouts in the reproduced signal. Data that cannot be corrected further are compensated by error concealment circuits. Output interface Component video data are converted into serial data and multiplexed with audio data, then output in the serial digital interface format. For analog output, component video data are D/A converted into an analog component signal, while they are encoded into composite digital, then D/A converted into analog composite signal. For audio outputs, the AES/EBU digital interface and D/A converted analog audio are available. Chapter 1 Overview 1-1 C h a p t e r 1 C h a p t e O r 1 v O e v e r r v v i e w i e w

1-1 Features Advanced Recording and Playback Functions C High-quality digital recording h a p The DVW-A500/1 series and DVW-500/1 series adopt t e r 1 component digital video and a four-channel, 20-bit O digital audio recording system using an AES/EBU v e r format with a wide dynamic range. A digital signal v i e w processing system that includes an advanced error correction and concealment system that are unique to digital Betacam provides superb video and audio quality, while the adjusting and setting of a built-in digital video processor ensures the output of precise and stable video signals. Playback compatibility with analog Betacam and Betacam SP (DVW-A500/1 series only) The DVW-A500/1 series provide playback capability with tapes recorded on the Betacam SP VTRs, so that Betacam users can upgrade to a digital environment while enjoying continued access to the enormous analog Betacam archives. Noiseless playback with DT heads Using the playback DT heads, you can perform noiseless playback at 54 speeds ranging from –1 to +3 times normal speed, including still-picture playback. Noiseless playback is also supported in the case of both digital and analog Betacam playback. Video and audio confidence heads Video and audio confidence heads enable you to play back video and audio signals on channels 1 to 4 while recording, to check the quality of the recording. Internal time code generator and reader The internal time code generator allows you to record LTC/VITC time codes and user bits together with video and audio signals. Time codes and user bits are read by the internal time code reader during playback. Computer servo system Computer-controlled servo motors provide direct drive for the drum, capstan, and two reels, enabling quick and accurate tape access. Capstan override function You can adjust the playback speed by ±15% to ensure synchronization between, for example, two VTRs playing back the same program. 1-2 Chapter 1 Overview Independent level controls The recording and playback levels of each of the four audio channels can be set indepenently during monitoring of audio level meters. Features for Ease of Operation Compact, lightweight, low power consumption The VTR is small and light enough to be used in outside broadcast vans or in EFP (Electronic Field Production) assignments. Remote control operation The VTR has a serial RS-422A 9-pin connector to allow control of the VTR by an external control unit through RS-422A communications. The VTR also comes with 9-pin REMOTE1-IN(9P) and OUT(9P) connectors to support bridge connection of multiple DVW-A500/1 or DVW-500/1 series units or other VTRs equipped with 9-pin remote connectors for simultaneous operations. Furthermore, by using the optional BKDW-509 Parallel (50-pin) Interface Kit, you can control the VTR from an external control unit with a parallel interface. Digital hours meter Three different hour displays and one cycle count display are supported, showing total elapsed time since the VTR was turned on, total drum revolution time, total tape running time and total number of threadings and unthreadings. Self-diagnosis When enabled through the maintenance menu, any malfunction causes the VTR to perform self-diagnosis, after which it displays the relevant error code in the display. Easy-to-maintain plug-in boards The VTR uses plug-in circuit boards to simplify servicing and inspection. Mountable in standard 19-inch rack The unit can be mounted in an EIA-standard 19-inch rack. For rack mounting, refer to the Installation Manual. 1-1-2 Features of the BKDW-515 The BKDW-515 Control Panel provides six menu screens corresponding to the six operation modes to allow fast and easy adjustment of necessary settings, as well as the ability to store menu settings to a memory card for later recall.

If both VTRs are identical in model and optional accessories, the entire IC memory card contents are read and applied as is. If the VTRs differ either in model or optional accessories, the following will occur: • Settings for those items that are common to both VTR A and VTR B are read (i.e, items that are common to most VTRs and unaffected by series or configuration differences). • Settings that exist on VTR B but not on VTR A remain unchanged. For example, if VTR A is a DVW-500/1 and VTR B is a DVW-A500/1, the analog Betacam playback settings on VTR B are not changed by data input from the IC memory card. • Settings for items that exist only on VTR A are not read. • Settings for items that exist only on VTR A and have been assigned to the PF1/2 menus are not read, and the respective function buttons do not appear in menu display on the BKDW-515 attached to VTR B.

1) Drop frame mode In order to compensate for differences between time code values from the time code generator and the actual time, the drop frame mode causes the time code generator to omit the first two frames (frame 00 and 01) in each minute except the tenth. 2) Non-drop frame mode A mode of advancing the time code in such a way that the difference in frame values between real time and the time code is neglected. Using this mode produces a difference of approximately 86 seconds per day between real time and the time code.
