The Sonu U-Matic Series 5 Lowband machines didn't facilite a timecode track - only the VO9*** and BVU series machines did. What people used to do was to allocate one of the audio tracks to timecode striping and then use a reader to pick it up. This was often used in offline editing of 1" C and BVU/BVU-SP tapes. Lowband U-Matic machines only used Control Track, unless they were modified by companies like Hamlet of Chesham.

Other Europe OEM models are alsohighly possible to produce for your demands if you can send me a sample. Lower production costs is ensured as we have production locations in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia.

After having been a user of Low Band U-Matic since 1976 - and an editor for TV jobs using a pair of 2750's with a Convergence ECS-1B edit controller between 1977 and 1980 (followed by a brand new VO5800 +5850 combo), I now have a massive archive of Lowband UMatic, BVU abd BVU-SP camera original masters, edit sub-masters, edit masters and general intermediate stuff that I need to digitise to DV and into NLE for archiving. I have the option of hiring a VO9600 (PAL), but the duration required for the hire would make it uneconomical, so I'm on the lookout to buy one such machine instead.

If anybody has, or knows of the availability of, one in good condition I'd be interested to know. One recently went for £100 on eBay, and that's the kind of money I'm looking to spend (bearing in mind that my old VO5850 cost £2,999 in 1981).

Any info most welcome.

george "I bought two VO-8800 "perhaps your supply doesn't provide enough juice or has a too high impedencei've had the same problem with my 8800 and a 6800 and it turned out the impedence of my supply was too high (i've added a big elco an voila)

I bought two VO-8800 Sony U-Matic recorders from two different sellers. They have the same thing in common. WHen I put a tape in one, it does not load the tape, it just sits there and clicks. Any idea?

Is the "SP" format backwards compatible with a VO5850 recorder?
