Hi,

Addendum - I'm only asking about this here because I haven't been given a manual. I'm also fairly sure the heads are shot, or at least grossly clogged, which I can do something about.

Thanks for any input.

Hi,

I'm in temporary posession of a PVW-2800P, and it's doing something I don't understand.

This problem looks like a sync problem, with the incoming signal. While the TCR display is in the right place (ruling out a monitor sync issue) the image behind it, including VITC that the 2800 is generating, is out of vertical lock.

Further, a blue line extending most of the way across the display, is visible between the top of the VITC and the bottom of the picture, visible above it.

The machine also occasionally complains "ERROR 02 - REEL TROUBLE 002", often when rewinding to the start of the tape using the shuttle dial.

Does the blue line mean anything, and can anyone suggest a fix for the situation?

Phil

Hi,

BVW-35 again. It's got a connector for a camera cable. Presumably the component video inputs are available on that?

All BVW 70 /75s i know of are older then 8 years and have been used on a daily basis so 4000 hrs of use is about regalur. Most companies using these machine have done headdrum replacements and mechanics service as adviced by sony. Most of the BVW 70 /75s have been replaced by Digital Betacam and Beta SX systems due to many broadcasters getting digital discbased broadcast servers and digital NLE's. Their asking price for BVW's can be an amazing $2500 or even more then $7000 depending on service state, age and ofcourse the managment of the guys you're buying it from. State owned national broadcasters are tend to sell these machine at lower prices then commercial broadcast facilities companies

Hi,

Thanks for the info. I've been told to check if the '35 will regenerate timecode and insert edit. I'm probably not worried by either function, but I want to be armed with all the info I can get. Decent performance when shuttling up and down IS important, so an edit capable deck would seem sensible.

So, a deck would actually do 4000 hours and still be worth buying if it had been used for straight playback?

Also, slight confusion: BVW would be a broadcast deck, UVW would be industrial. Is this necessarily a problem? I was told to check "if it allows full range Beta SP singals or it cuts them down a la UVW1800 ". So the 1800 might not be right. Presume this is the difference between a "UVW" and a "BVW".

As you can probably gather, this is my first real broadcast toy - I've been Mr. MiniDV thus far.

Thanks again,

Phil

Hi,

Blast, I've just discovered that the BVW-35 has composite input only. This is no good - ideally I'd like S-video. What do I have to buy to get that?

Thanks all,

Phil

Well a BVW 35 would do o.k. If you are willing to sacrifice 2 audio channels you could try and get a UVW1800P instead, wich works great with NLE's and RS422... A lot of hours depends on the what the machine is used for 4000 hours on a machine wich just does playback all the times is less of an impact then a machine with a 1200 hours of frame accurating editing. As for head replacements/ machine servicing you might want to check out kgc in germany at http://www.kgc.de they service betacam decks at reasonable prices.

Hi,

It's becoming obvious that I need Beta SP facilities in my mainly DV-based suite. I was considering the BVW-35, which LRC inform me goes for around £1500-1600. Can anyone comment on this machine, and whethere I'm shooting myself in the foot by not buying a more capable model? I'd really only be using it to get material onto the NLE or another more accessible format. Is there anything to watch out for when buying this machine used, how many hours is "lots", and how much do replacement heads cost?
