It can be t e used for checking the contents of the recorded tapes, determining editing r points, or playing demonstration tapes. As such, the functions required for 1 C h a tape editing are not provided on the DVW-522/522P. p t e O r 1 v O The DVW-522 can be used in the NTSC color system while the DVW v e e r v 522P can be used in the PAL color system, though they adopt component r i e v w format. i e w Chapter 1 Overview 1-1 1-2 Features 1-2 Features 1-2-1 Digital BETACAM Format The DVW-522/522P adopts the newly developed Digital BETACAM C h format as an extension of the BETACAM/BETACAM SP format. The a p t Digital BETACAM format makes the best of the available recording area e r 1 to achieve high-quality digital recording while keeping analog BETACAM O v e tape playback compatibility. The following are developed for this purpose: r v i e • Coefficient recording system w • Powerful error correction system • High-quality precision heads and drum with dynamic tracking (DT) heads • New automatic tracking system These enable 120 minutes or more of playback time with Digital BETACAM (when using L-size cassettes), while the cassette size of the Digital BETACAM is exactly same as the normal BETACAM and BETACAM SP. Note The DVW-522/522P is designed exclusively for playing back digitally recorded video cassette tapes. Tape format The video and four-channel audio signals of each field are recorded onto the tape with six helical tracks, using a slightly slower tape speed and three times faster drum rotation speed than the conventional BETACAM and BETACAM SP formats. The Digital BETACAM format has three longitudinal tracks: a CTL track, a time code (LTC) track and a cue audio track, identical to the conventional BETACAM and BETACAM SP format. However, the conventional audio channel-1 track is deleted and used for expansion of the helical tracks. The larger drum diameter enables optimum digital recording, while analog BETACAM playback compatibility is maintained by specially developed time base corrector circuits. 1-2 Chapter 1 Overview 1-2 Features 1-2-2 Advanced Playback Functions C High-quality digital playback h a p t e r 1 The DVW-522/522P adopts a component digital video system and four O v channel digital audio playback system which, along with an advanced error e r v i correction and concealment system, provide superb video and audio e w playback quality. Note The DVW-522/522P outputs only analog composite signals that have undergone digital-to-analog conversions. Noiseless playback with DT heads The DVW-522/522P’s playback DT heads allow you to perform noiseless playback at any of 54 speeds, ranging from –1 to 3 times normal speed and including still-picture playback. Built-in time code reader Time codes and user’s bits are read by a built-in 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%. Chapter 1 Overview 1-3 1-2 Features 1-2-3 Ease of Operation C Set-up menus h a p t e r 1 The initial settings of the VTR operation mode is easily done using the O v lower control panel. e r v i e w Easy-to-use front panel All important controls are located on the easy-to-use front panel, which can be angled as necessary. The front panel can also be completely detached for use as a remote control unit when used with the BKDW-510/511 Control Panel Extension Kit/Control Panel Case. Digital hour meter Three different kinds of hour displays and one cycle count display are supported; 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, a self-diagnosis menu causes the VTR to analize the cause of any malfunction which occurs, then display the relevant error code in the time counter display. Easy-to-maintain plug-in boards The VTR uses plug-in circuit boards to simplify servicing and inspection. Mountabiliy in standard 19-inch racks The VTR can be mounted in an EIA-standard 19-inch rack. For rack mounting, refer to the Maintenance Manual Part 1. 1-4 Chapter 1 Overview 1-3 Optional Accessories 1-3 Optional Accessories 1-2 Features The following accessories can be used with the VTR. BKDW-510 Control Panel Extension Kit C h a p t e r Enables the control panel of the VTR to be detached and used as a remote 1 O control unit connected to the main unit with a supplied cable. v e r v i e w BKDW-511 Control Panel Case Provides protection for a detached control panel being used in a control console. References • Maintenance Manual Part 1 Provides information necessary for users to install the VTR and its peripherals and to maintain the VTR and its optional equipment. • Maintenance Manual Part 2 (available on request) Provides additional information to fully maintain the VTR.

6 STANDBY button Pressing this button in other than standby mode makes it light and places the VTR in standby mode. Since the head-drum rotates in standby mode, the tape can thus start sooner than in non-standby mode. When you press this button while in standby mode the button extinguishes, the VTR exits standby mode, the tape tension is released, and the drum stops rotating. If more than eight minutes (factory preset time) elapse while the VTR is in standby mode, the VTR automatically exits standby mode to prevent tape and head clogging. 7 SERVO indicator Lights when the drum servo and capstan servo lock. 8 EJECT button Ejects the cassette. Resets the display when CTL codes appear in the time counter display. 9 PLAY button Starts playback. !º STOP button Stops the tape (stop mode). In stop mode, the tape is wound around the head-drum, but the head-drum continues to rotate. The VTR enters stop mode whenever you load a cassette.

However, since there are no reference signal connectors on the h a p VTRs, complete synchronization between the two VTRs cannot be t e r 4 obtained. P l a y b a c Note k Set the system so that jog/shuttle mode playback does not start unless you press the JOG, SHUTTLE or VAR button first. Doing this prevents the VTR from accidentally entering search mode during capstan override playback. For details on setting the system in this way, refer to “3-2-1 Items That Require Setting for Operations” on page 3-2. 1,2 1 Capstan override playback Chapter 4 Playback 4-7 4-1 Preparing for Playback 4-2 Playback 1 To adjust the playback speed, rotate the search dial while holding down the PLAY button.

M a 1 Insert the cleaning cassette. i n t e 2 Press the EJECT button simultaneously with the PLAY button. n a n Head cleaning starts. c e After head cleaning continues for five seconds, the cleaning cassette is automatically ejected. Note Perform Step 2 immediately after inserting the cleaning cassette. If you do not, the cassette will be ejected after two or three seconds and no head cleaning will be done. C h a p t e r 5 M a i n t e n a n c e Chapter 5 Maintenance 5-1 5-2 Moisture Condensation 5-1 Removing a Cassette When Tape Slacking Has Occurred If you suddenly move the VTR from a cold location to a warm one, or use the VTR in a very humid place, moisture in the air can form on the head drum or tape guide. This is called moisture condensation. If you play a tape under these conditions, the tape may adhere to the drum where moisture has collected and become damaged. If moisture condenses on the head-drum while you are operating the VTR, the AUTO OFF indicator lights and the error message “Error-10” appears in the time counter display. C h a p t e r 5 M a i “Error-10” appears in the time counter display. n t e n a n c e When moisture condensation has occurred When this error message appears, the drum and capstan motors stop and the cassette is automatically ejected. The drum then starts to rotate again to dry the surface of drum. Once the moisture has evaporated, the error message disappears. If the AUTO OFF indicator lights and “Error-10” appears immediately after turning the VTR on Leave the VTR turned on and wait until the indicator goes off. Inserting a cassette is not possible while this indicator is on. When the indicator goes off and the error message disappears, you can use the VTR. If you move the VTR from a cold to a warm location Leave the VTR turned off for about ten minutes since some time is needed for the condensation-detection mechanism to work. 5-2 Chapter 5 Maintenance
