Does any one remember a JVC KY320 tube camera. If so, can you tell me if this was a 2/3 inch camera or if not what size lens did it take.

Hi.. I was wondering if anyone knows out there if there are any other units that the DUR-28 head is compatible with besides the VO-8800... Just pulled one out of a dead unit that had only 100 hours on is and thought of saving it for another machine if possible.. THanks..

Hi everybody

We are some people here in Denmark who have been happy working with the U-Matic system for many years. Now we work with computer-editing and with systems based on BetacamSP. We have to move to another location, and in our cellar we found some of our loved equipment - we have carried it through storms and water and the gear have helped us coming home with a lot of good stories, good pictures and we sometimes had to say "Thank God for the BVU110 - without it, we would have come home without anything". Some of it have been very helpfull during editing - we feel, we know the location of every buttum.But we dont have room for it anymore - check our web-site and see, if you need any of the items. Some more might turn on there.

YoursIvan Cordes

Hello. I'm a newbie to U-Matic, and I had a couple of questions. Maybe you people can answer them. I just got ahold of a Sony U-Matic VO-5850. It apparently hasn't been touched forseveral years, and I'm trying to incorporate it into my Edit System.

1. The picture rolls, as if it doesn't have synchronization. Is there a way to fix this?2. I don't get any audio out of the machine, except when I record things on the machine itself. The audio seems to have a 60Hz tone in it as well... but that may be my equipment. Regardless, I don't see any audio on the meters. I get video, but again, it's rolling.

If this can/cannot be easily fixed, or if you have any advice, please send it my way. I'dlike to keep this machine, but if it does't work, then I'll junk it.

P.S. I'll look on E-Bay, but where do you think I could find a service manual for this?

Thanks, -- Tbirdsaw

Hi guys, I'm looking for a manual on a Sony VO-9850P recorder. I have been given the task of working out how to connect up this recorder to a SGI Personal Iris, a Lyon Lamb MINIVAS controller, and a PAL genlock encoder 606P. Unfortunatly there is little documentation on these devices, and even less on how they used to be connected (they were all connected and working, but no-one is left who remembers how). If anyone has information on these devices I would be grateful for a clue.

Regards John Syer
