Hi does anybody have/ or know of anyone/any place that sells second hand beta sp players and/or dvcam players/cameras? What is the price range on these secondhand products genaraly?
any help would be much appreciated!
Dear all, My question isn't Betacam related. However, as there are a number of "video veterans" on this board, I hope to get some help. I purchased a JVC BY110 three tube camera on eBay. It seems that it has a slight burnin (hope this is the correct English word for it) on one of the tubes. I've noticed a small grey spot in the middle of the camera image. I've heard that there are some techniques to remove this spot without having to change the whole tube. Something like filming a particular colour or grey card for a couple of minutes. Anyway, I really hope someone is able to help me :-) Thanks a lot & greetings from Austria,

Hi folks I need to access on the web information (including tech specs) for Sony BVW600 camcorder. Can anyone help,please. Thanks
Has anyone ever modifed a BVW-75P (or similar) to playback ordinary betamax tapes? I dont think its possible without extensive modification, as betacam is component and betamax is composite. Also, there is the different carrier frequencies and tape speed differences to contend with!Just curious i guess.
Does anyone know the RS232 commands for a Sony BetaCam PVW 2800?

Well, the TV systems are different. American VHS uses NTSC, PAL VHS uses PAL. American NTSC uses 525 lines and PAL uses 500 (I think). Also, the power systems are different. We use 60hz, they use 50. Someone from the PAL system correct me if I'm wrong. Plus, VHS is yucky. Come on over to the Betamax chat page and we'll help you see the light. :)

have substantial number of sony beta 750 tapes and several hd500 tapes--also two 750 units with bad transports--no usa back up --so have gone to svhs
To my knowledge the principle of AFM on Beta is the same as the FM audio on VHS recorders.So it is analog and uses compression, expension, pre-emphasis and de-emphasis. I can tell you more about the FM audio used on the VHS system but maybe there is someone out there that knows for sure if the AFM on Beta is the same as the VHS FM audio.
I'm looking for an in depth description of how the AFM audio tracks on Beta SP decks is recorded. Is it digital data recorded during blanking or modulated analog data. Also is it recorded longitudinaly or helically scanned.

I have recently acquired a BVT-500 to work with my 5850/RM-440 set-up.The problem I have is that the output signal ever so slowly scrolls, about 2-3 lines a second. And not smoothly but in little jumps. It happens both in DUB and Composite outputs.I can't find any adjustments in the manual. Suggestions anybody?
