Hi, just wondering if anyone has a scrap BVW-10P-perhaps with duff heads. Basically i am after a power supply module that sits at the back of the machine. As usual Sony wants megabucks for spare parts.
Hi, anyone has a used BVW 300-P viewfinder's for sale. please email me.thanks
I am looking to purchase any PAL broadcast equipment.ie. VTR's Camcorder's Monitor's Test equipment.I am in the UK so when responding please state where youare from.
9/11/01Is a date that I'm sure will live in the memories of all Americans and rational peace loving people through out the world alike. What has happened here today is so shocking and unbelievable words fail to describe it. Thank you to all of our friends from around the world for your kind words of support and sympathy for the trajedy that our country has suffered today.
Hello, does anybody have any BVW-95P, BVW-96P or BVW-85P that they no longer require or are scrap. I might be interested if the price is right. The BVW-95/96 are side loading betas and seem to be redundent these days due to the advance of server technology. The BVW-85p is basically a 75 but with 2 channels of pcm audio (recorded on the track space of linear channel 1 audio). Only 220 machines were made and replacement heads cost about £1k more than that of a 75.
Note I forgot to include: It's probably in a broadcast series, as it is large, heavy, and has a very big viewfinder.
I'm looking for an old non-SP dockable Betacam camcorder from about 1985 or so. It's got a Sony 3CCD Camera head (very nondescript, just regular matte grey), and a large recorder with a horizontal tape loading mechanisim with a glass front with "BETACAM" in all captial letters stenciled onto it.

Im afraid that it can't be done, you can infact (on most editors) simulate a different timecode. On BVW machines it is possible (with a remote) to lace in a new LTC timecode, rewritting the VITC is something i never tried. Using the TC as an adress code works on your console works better and easier. If the Timecode strips are damaged, it is best to copy your work to another tape. Metal dies of fast on old UVWT tapes, using the metal evaporased maxell equivalants works better.
I have a UVW - 1800P recorder. Can someone please show me how to recorder new timecode on tape that has already been striped such that the picture and sound remain intact and only the timecode is recorded afresh?
I was asking that same question last week. I don't know what your views are on ITV Digital, but I live in Basingstoke, and my local pub is showing the football on ITV, I think you will find on here:http://www.itv-digital.co.uk/company/home/publocator/locator.htmlthat The Railway Tavern has one.Hope that helps.
Hey there, I'm due a long vacation at the end of this month, and am goin to stay with my parents in Andover, and as old fashioned as they are, they hate football. I'm looking to find out if there are any pubs in the area that are showing the UEFA, Nationwide, and Worthington Games. Does anybody know?
Hello,I am searching for a good condition - second hand - Ikegami HL-V55 with a standard lens mount. If anyone knows of any on the market I would be pleased to hear from them.
Anyone got an old UVW or early Betacam machine they not longer want (eg a machine only good for spares/repair that might be going fairly cheapish). Thanks, Keith.
I have some BVW-65 's (NTSC)card like DM-56,Vo-18,TBC's Etc.....Please let me know if you are interested in buying...

Greetings from Germany
I'm trying to find out more about a Betacam BVW-15nfl machine. Can anybody give me some help because I can't seem to find on this webpage. We are having a hard time to get coloured video out of it. Everything is in black an white and not very sharp.
Any suggestiond are very welcome!!!
Hi Simon You could try http://www.computervideo.net and follow the links to the mag forum. Camcorder User has a for sale page.RegardsCharles
Hi all, Could anyone tell me where i can get a DV camcorder for a good price, new or second hand? Useful links would be appreciated. cheers!
The UK uses PAL. And most small tv stations aswell as most professional outfits don't have the ability to playback NTSC Betacam SP. Besides looking horible NTSC to PAL conversion gives a lot costs. Since it's a commerical why not try 16mm film and working on avid (24fps) and mastering / bouncing to both PAL aswell as NTSC Betacam
Hello. I am producing a commercial in the USA for a client based in the UK. I am aware of the NTSC/PAL difference, and I'd like to know if the average consumer in the UK has the ability to easily switch between the two formats. My clients need to view the progress of the spot on a daily basis, so it is imperative that I know if they will be able to view VHS and betas on NTSC. Would you please help clarify the UK's video system for me so that I can schedule my project more accurately? I would be grateful for any input you may have.

Due to lack of serious response, I still have a Sony UVW1800P deck for sale,it has only 10 drum hours, 27 total hours & 133 threads it is in mint condition, boxed with the manual. I am now looking for the best offer over £3500. This is as low as I can go folks.
I am looking for Betacam SP 1400UVW or 1800UVW PAL.
I have a PAL version PVW-2800 VTR. I have heard of a company who makes a 4 audio channel mod kit for these machines. Does anyone know the name of the company and contact info (web site, phone number, etc)
Thanks in advance
How do I create a Betacam tape from a demonstration running on a PC. Can I output with software directly to a tape or do I need a special program. What if I have the demonstration as an AVI file? Any links to websites that discuss this subject would be appreciated.
...or just assemble insert audio pair 2 (3&4) (For-A edit controller) from the controller and reroute the audio cable's to the 3&4 XLRs
Try to insert the 4 channels all at once via the DUB plug. Special Pro tools and AES/EBU converters to analog Beta SP BVW machines can be rented. Why not work the entire project in a rented facility and dub to DVCPRO or Beta SX tape wich support simulations plackback of channels 1,2,3,4 at once. Also the 3&4 tracks can only be used for voice, since their bandwith is much smaller then 1&2...

I have a problem that probably either has a simple solution or is impossible!
I have been editing with a BVW 50 (player) and a BVW 70 (rec) for years doing simple assemble edit 2 ch audio stuff. Now I have a project that requires 3 ch audio (1 for voice 2 for music) I am baffled to find that the BVW 70 only seems to output channels 1&2 OR channels 3&4 not all four at once. If I lay down the music on channels 1&2 channel 1 is overwritten when I insert the audio on channel 3. I have tried many combinations but one channel always seems to get overwritten when I put on the voice track. I must be doing something wrong!
I know I could probably get round it with an audio mixer, but it is just for this one project and I don't really want to buy a mixer for a 4 minute edit!
Any tips and tricks would be appreciated forever.
Where shall I look for a Used Beta SP on the cheap?I was thinking under £1000:BVW35 with component cables. (can the BVW35 be a good studio deck?) or UVWs.PVW 2600 and up.
I know of a few scene files for the HL-45W and the new DVCPRO/DVCAM machines. Since i do not own a MMC card reader here is a short overview of settings used (On a HL-V79W): Film (whitelevel SMPTE standard), Film 2 (whitelevel IFC standard), ENG (ENG whitelevel, transpose and chromo synced to look like a BVW 400), EFP (The HL-V55 look), Drama (Orginal preset from the MMC slot on the HK-466s) and Walter (My own, calibrated to equal the Philips LDK150). I do now about these MMCs sold by dealers for use with digital film project, and the settings for SMPTE can be obtained from an SMPTE test card and an SMPTE test DVD (Audio + instructions)
I look for used Betacam SP UVW 1400 recorder/player.
I own an Ikkegami HL45 (not the HL45W ) And am looking for some scene files. I have a couple that I am willing to share although, the truth is that I haven't found any I like better than the factory setup.
I would like a "Sony Look" scene just to satisfy my over chroma-ed clients.
I have one called "hot rod" which is OK but not great. Redder reds and a little more chroma.
And one called "film look" which mostly is a little soft and slightly muted color saturation.
Using Final Cut Pro 2.0, Gport RS422 serial controller with composite input to offline with a PVW 2600p. after log & capture the burnt-in timecode is offset by sometimes 1 or 2 frames. But it is very inconsistant. Even after calibrating the timecode the captured video is offset.
There is no reference going in or out of the player. Is this a syncing issue & if so how do I get around it?

Is anyone familiar with the DME450? I have just got a used one and am having a couple of minor problems;
I can't reverse the effect direction. The switch in the mainframe appears to do nothing - and the DME doesn't recognise adding + 3000 to the effect number.
The black level on the outgoing bus is slightly higher than the other bus, therefor when I line up the DME to do an effect after normal editing - I get a jump just cut before the effect. I have managed to drag the Video Level and Chroma level/phase to the corrct position, but am still getting high blacks and a slightly lower detail level.
Any help much appreciated.
Cameraman wanted for Manchester based firm, filming football, so obviously this is mostly saturdays, kit supplied, training given if needed.
I don't know much about betacam even if I'm workin' with them every day, but I wanna know how much it costs a second hand betacam, a very used one.
I have a Panasonic NV-EX1, but no manual.
Can anyone help with either an original manual or a photocopy please?

I am looking for the RS-232 pin configuration for the Sony beta-sp uvw-1400ap please can you help
That's a real neat price for a betacam machine. One last tip on the HC300 try to get a good lighting set. The HC300 is not that very good in low level light. A good HL-series machines goes for at least DM 20.000. The HC300 was marketed in 1994 as a machine for pro use (presentations, industrial, law enforcement) and for low end broadcasting (news, local tv, cable television etc). It's a good peace of hardware. I saw a few of these machines with PVV's and Hi8 dockables. The ZDF and ARD in Germany where very big fans of these machines, as i recall
thanks for your anwer. Yesterday I bought this combo for 4500 DEM ($2000). I love the nice pics. If have more oney in future I'll think about the HL from Ike. Thanks alot
The HC300 is a professional camera, and is useable for broadcast but i would not use it on pure broadcast work. It can be compared a bit to the BVW-300P but it is nowhere close to a good DSP cam. If you like ikegami (just as much as i do) you could best invest in a used HL-V55 or a BVV5P/HL-55 HL-57 or HL 59 combo. Especially the 59 is very usefull since it has a 10 bit noise reduction and good low lux pictures. All the HL-55 and up machines offer FIT ccd's, if you want something else instead of an ikky. You could try the BVW-400P, BVP-300P with BVV5 Hitachi Z-one-D (with BVV) or a Panasonic F-WV800 with a BVV5.
dear sir: i have problem with a uvw 1800 p ,when i make play i see "banding" over the withe portion of the video signal ¿wich problem cause this? also i wish to learn how i can repair this defects.tank you in advance david morales
Sorry, forgot to tell the editor is in France, Alsace, but I can deliver from here up towards North of Denmark and to Norway as I do the trip very often.
Hi, I have a Sony BVE - 800 editor for Sony Betacam (SP) that I'm no longer using. Anybody need this ? Supplied with printed cards for 1 player and 1 recorder, but 1 extra plug-in card can easily be put in to support a second player. Excellent condition. Very clean.
Any offer welcome.
I could buy a Ikegami HC 300 / BVV5ps combo. I read much about the BVV, but I don't know much about the HC300. Is it a good camera? I want to make ENG work with it. Is it like the Sony 300??Next Question. Have a BVW 40 and want to create or buy a DUB ---> 3 component cable. Have anyone the pin layout of the DUb Plug?
I'm looking to buy a Sony UVW1400. I only need a player, but if you have a recorder at the right price then I'm interested! Thanks - DS Nottingham UK
I think that an ERROR 09 on a uvw deck means a capstan error, i don't know for sure. I had it once with an 1800 deck when i wanted to get in pre roll status. I had it send to sony and had it up and working 4 days later
hi sexy talk to me i gift u something
I have no luck finding a list of error codes. I have Error 9 on the machine and I have no idea what that means.

Igonre all that BS I just said. I'm now bothering to read my sources. Still, how many hours does the D30 have on it?
Bing! What sort of condition is the D30/PVW1 combo in? What lens does it have? How many hours on the recorder? Battery system included? How does the D30 compare to a DXC35?
Following my earlier message from northern england, a few of us are having to go sx so camera equipment for sale includes1 Hitachi Z1B Camera / Sony Bvw 5 Sp Recorder £37502 Hitachi Z1C Camera / Sony Bvw 5 Sp Recorder £57503 Sony D30 widescreen / Sony Pvv1 sp recorder £75004 Sony 300p Camcorder. £4000. Any SX Equipment for sale.???
Thanks for the info. Any more detail on this thing would be more than welcome because it sounds just about right (not so cheap as to be crappy, but not so expensive it's impossible).
A IEE 1394 to component (or even DUB socket) is present on some models of Sony's new DSR-line. But then again who want's to spend money on those machines when you just need a converter. Norman Electronics from Canada builds a machine wich converts IEE 1394, SDI and the Panasonic D5 plug to a Betacam/M-II 3 BNC component connector. They sell just under a thousand dollars, have well shielded outputs and also convert audio, wich is outputted with XLRs. I do know that their's a NTSC/PAL switch on it, but i do not know anything on it's availability here in the EU. I saw it on a show once. norman.com is owned by company wich makes virusscanners... so i'm affraid it's going to be a search!
Does anyone have any experience with conversion of 1394 to component? I'm looking into a Betacam SP deck and it seems a shame to spend several grand on a deck to feed it S-video, which is the best analogue my NLE will do. Datavision have a Magic Black Box which claims to do this. Does anyone have any experience with it?
Its Yahoo.com of course not what ive spelt. Anyone had experience with Sx, in one way im happy they want sx rather than digi.
Hello from the North of England, I have some sp equipment for sale,Ive kindly been given a months notice from my "bosses" that they require sx now, so I know have for sale. Hitachi Z-One B camera , with Fuji 16x lens, with Bvv5 Sp back end.Vinten pro tripod. £5000.00 (british pounds not that euro stuff) . Happy filming
Well audio dubbing would go o.k. on a UVW1800P. With a small edit controller and (maybe) a capture board on your PC running Adobe premiere you can edit video on your PC. A decent editing set up would cost around $2500 for a good UVW1800, $1000 for a good captureboard (Miro DV500,DC1000 ,etc). When doing voice overs remember to have a good speach cell and use a good mic .One of those horrible Sennheiser MD421 won't do, try to get a capicitator mic such as a AKG C3000 or Sennheiser MKH series. For a complete working soundstudio ,with active monitors, broadcast qaulity 6 channel mixer, Optimod TV limiter/effector, digital PC(SPDIF) to XLR interface, and a capicitator mic) you will need around $4000 to 5000. Don't forget that most pro/broadcast soundcards need to have XLR out, since PCs have an enormous magnetic audio coupling function, try to keep the AD conversion outside (i.e. breakout box or a SPDIF/optical to XLR converter). Happy editing!
That's a tricky chunk of electronics. You need a Magic Black Box, which is my designation for any item of equipment I don't know how to build, which does something useful. If you catch Computer Video magazine this month there's a MBB which will convert from component to 1394 digital video. Ideal for your application.
Hi I have a small sound studio, running Cubase5, Soundforge5 on PC, with all the basic equipment needed to record, master etc.I am totally new to the Beta scene and would like to know what would be the most cost effective way for me to have a Beta system up and running. Would it mean syncronising my current set up to a Beta machine, with a TV screen? I have no idea! I would like to be able to do voice-overs/music to existing beta material, master it and have it ready for the client in Beta format.Any info would be much appreciated.ThanksCraig
can anyone give me an idea of how to convert the component output from my BVW-15P to YC? I have already routed the Y,B-Y,R-Y from the multipin contact to 3x BNC and the levels seem OK when connected to the component input on my Sony monitor. But as I want to use the machine to transfer archive SP tapes into a Sony GVD-900 DV recorder with only YC in, there I am.
Best regards and hope some of you have an idea.Amund
I think that you're in the wrong "chatbox", this is a forum on the Betacam professional video format. The only gold object in my possesion is a goldplated 50 years of make celebration Neumann U 87 microphone..
