what is the name of the sony cable needed to work with the sony va-300 or va-500 playback adapter through the uvw-100? ??
CIRCUIT NEEDED: I have a particular need which requires me to interface the zoom socket (8-pin) on a Betacam SP's Fujinon lens into some custom electronics. Does anyone know the pinouts of the 8-pin zoom-demand socket, or (even better) have a circuit to a Fujinon zoom demand control from which I might be able to extract some information to help me design some suitable interface electronics? I'd be happy to share the finished product with anyone else who needs to control the zoom fuction remotely. Thanks.

Hi. I need to buy a betacam in PAL system. Also, I want a very good offer for a television production car system. Please everybody contact us.Marius
RE: SONY BVW-85P, i think only about 220 of these machines were manufactured and i think it was launched in 1990. The heads i am told are about £700 more than an ordinary 75. The PCM data is recorded in the track space of channel 1 linear audio and there is an additional motor on the transport near the audio stack. As far as compatability goes, there shouldnt be a problem but ch1 audio will be sacrificed if using PCM on a recording. The rf envelope will have to be good, otherwise you may get clicks on the PCM.
I'm looking for a PAL Betacam player (recording is not vital) Any advice on where to buy one secondhand (reconditioned).
Any help would be appreciated.
I´m searching for a well operatingPAL Betacam SP Player (any type).But price should be about $1000,- (that´smy problem)

hello,how to connect a betacam uvw 1400 and a macintosh G4 in a final cut pro applications? Which connector can i use? Is it possible to control the timecode? Thank you.
I would like to know what is the exact betacam sp resolution (I think it's about 800 x 576 pixels).
Does anyone know something about Sonys BVW-85P (75 with PCM). I have some questions: Could I record on the 85 and playback on any other BetaSP machine? How much would a new upperdrum cost? Does anyone has a picture of these unit? Thanks
Hey what's up all!! I'm doing a research on the Betacam SX and I need some some circuits plans so if anyone knows where to get some on the net, it'll be very much appreciated...

Hi i am after a cheap DEC-20P card for a BVW-75P. If anyone has one kicking around or in a scrap machine, please get in touch. Thanks.
Heyas! On the bottom of a betacam tape, there's these three little what look like knockouts between the reels and closer to the front of the tape. The three are shaped sort of like a "T" -- a long one in the center and shorter on left and right. I was just curious as to what these are used for. Betacam oxide tapes work great in betamax decks but the latter's tapes don't have these knockouts. See picture w/ scans of both tape bottoms:
howmuch BVW-D75PS upper drum?.......

I need to know the serial commands (in binary) required to control the Betacam deck via RS422/RS232 port. Typical commands would be those for STOP and PLAY. I cannot findsuch technical information please help.
I have a Thompson 50p for sale for 6000 uk pounds, and a bvw 75p, tbc12 for 6500 uk pounds. Let me know if anyone is interested.
I was wondering if anyone knows how to set up a Sony BVW-75P Betacam SP to sync with a Protools 24mix rig using a MOTU AV midi timepiece.
I need to record some audio for a friend onto his Beta video, but I obviously want to use a Protools system which is currently available.
Do I need to strip the Beta tape with SMPTE, or is there another way around this, IE using the timecode XLR's in the back of the betaplayer. If so, how would I go about using such a method.
Many thanks for your time,
I am helping a colleague set up a SONY UVW-1600P connected to a PC. Can anybody tell us what the COM port settings should be for the RS-422 connection.

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...

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.

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.
