I run a student TV station, which still runs on U-Mat. Most of our machines are starting to show degraded picture quality. Does anyone have any servicing manuals/tips. Is it worth trying to do it ourself, or best to take it elsewhere? If so, how much should we look to pay? (We are in central London)

Thanks in advance,

Dave

Hi, i think it would be a great idea to open a site for 1 inch tape!, i myself have 2 1 Inch Cintra Machine's, Cintra is an east-german professional standard build by Robotron Elektronikwerke. Yep the same guys that made stazi telephone bugs, stazi computers etc. I Believe cintra is the best analog 1 inch system, with separte R,G,B-channels and a higher tape speed then sony's 1 inch system. It's better then U-matic or Hi 8 or even M-II!.Only editing takes up a lot of time.Does anyone have spare parts for Cintra machines (i.e. Robotron CV20's)

Hi folks,

I've a load of tapes recorded on a Sony Portapak back in the early '70s which I'd like to convert to a current format.

Someone gave me a VTR which will probably play the tapes, but I've no compatible screen.

Can anyone recommend a PC video card which might be programmed to capture the composite video which (if I recall correctly) is 405 line monochrome.

Thanks for any helpful suggestions.

Hi,I'm a total novice with these u-matic tapes but i want to supply an advertising company in my country.I presently stay in Indonesia,so can you please tell me a)the nearest place to buy it around here and the price I should expect for one.b)if it's adviseable to buy it in Europe than in Asia 'cos it's actually going to Africa.Thanx in advance.

Hi Mark,

As Tom said standard composite video outputs and inputs are available on all Umatic machines; As a non-Linear source they work just fine and the lack of Y/C connection really is just a moot point.

The Y/C on the dub jack BTW is very different from S-Video; In theory it should be possible to fit a Y/C socket but I see no need to bother myself.

As a shooting source even low band Umatic is a good alternative to SVHS. Though the resolution is theoretically akin to VHS, good tv pictures are not dependant on lines alone...

I shoot a lot of _Very_ low budget stuff and only resort to SVHS when ahndling difficulties preclude the use of a Umatic portable..

Like Tom says ..go for it!

Sorry guys, mistyped my email on last message. A thought just occured to me, why not have a page for one-inch? I know it's not exactly a format most would consider for use in their desktop video system(machines over 70Kg!) but it's still a damn good performer and goes for much the same prices as U-matic.

Hi Mark, all U-matic decks have composite video in and out on BNC connectors (socket adaptors are only a quid if your card takes video via phono). More recent decks do have a YC socket but unfortunately this is different to S-Video. Most low-bands have phonos for audio in and out together with three-pin cannon sockets. Hi-bands only seem to have cannons so you may need to wire up a few custom leads. U-matic gives far greater pictures than S-VHS. It's also far more stable, hard wearing and can go a lot more generations - and it's cheap. Go for it!

I am currently doing some non linear editing on a miro capture card,using S-VHS as a source. I'd like to be able to go from a 3/4 source into the computer, but I'm not sure if that is possible to do with my system. The only inputs into my capture card are either composite or S-VHS. Can I use a 3/4 U-matic with this computer editingsystem? Any info would be great.Thanks! [email protected]

Hi Keith,

The CR 6600 is a much later model than the 6060 .. It's actually quite a sophisticatedmachine with Direct Drive drum and capstan, servo reel system, microprocessor logiccontrol of the transport. It has 5X search in both forward and reverse and can assembleedit although I don't think there's a flying erase head. It would normally be teamed with aCR 8200 to form an edit suite ..the 8200 being the editor.

All in all a very good machine; top loading, possibly one of the last of that ilk. Quitepretty. Could be anything up to 20 years old. For serious use stick to later Sonys if youhave a choice but these _are_ nice! Don't pay too much for one though; These are old top loaders; most Sony 5 7 and 9 series you see are vastly overprices and these old JVCs fall way behind..

Hi, I have just launched a Text-tv service and would like to use some U-matic players/recorders i have with the text-tv server. Does anybody know, if there's software wich could "jump-start" the playbuttons and also run text-tv! (the guy who has to go to our studio in the middle of the night to paste in the video stuff is getting a bit grumpy!). I also have a For-A editing machine wich i use for day-time programming (with PVW/BVW series Beta), wich has a 9 pin "CTL/B - IN" and 2 9 pin "CTL/B - OUT" connectors wich are not in use, could i "hot-wire" the For-A to get the U-mats to "jump-start"?

GreetZ and Congratulations on a support site wel done!

Dan,

Sadly, probably not, unless your player has been modified to playback highband tapes.

That said you have a good camera and recorder there; good edit suite too. It might just be possible to acquire the highband conversion or find an highband machine that will act as play in. Of course your 5850 is low band so the end result will be low band, that's no great hardship though and you may well be able to upgrade later...

Sony Compatibility?

Hello,

Being a new enthusiast I thought I might draw on your expertise. I just received an old school Sony 5850, 5800 and Sony 440. Will I be able to edit the footage we shoot from a DXC 3000 and BVU 150 on this system? I am not clear as if SP format and the highband Umatic equipment are compatible. Any help would be great.

Excellent site!

Cheers,

Dan

Hi,

I am a volenteer at a student TV station. We currently have a number of VO-2630 machines which need valuing for internal and insurance purposes. As far as I know they are in pretty good condition. Does anyone know how much:a) it would cost to replace themb) they would actually be worth if we were to try and sell them (hey, do people still want these?)

Thanks

JAMES!!! At last someone like myself! I'm a collector of un-loved production kit in the UK. We'll have to set up an international charity for the rescue of people's electronic cast-offs :-)

My driving lessons are already booked for the summer, so in the not-to distant future I'll be able to pick up dead and dying kit from anywhere in the country. Low-bands, BVUs, Oxide Betas, One-inch, tube cameras, mixers, TBCs, monitors etc... They'll be a full on my website which I'm rebuilding at present.

A little off-topic folks, hope nobody minds too much.

Panasonic F10 or F15 camera wanted. Must be in good working order.VCR or PSU not really required though if one's thrown in it mightbe a nice sweetener

Will pay up to £100 for F10, £120 for F15. No offers above theseprices; the cameras just aren't worth any more! UK only, I'm locatednear Edinburgh and will travel as far as Newcastle or Aberdeen.

Happy to pay in folding fun tokens so long as I get at leasta handwritten receipt; Personal purchase so no VAT or paperworknonsense ..I just want a receipt in case the thing turns out to benicked or summat.

We are using a For-A time base corrector a FA-430P... The TBC is from a few years ago and there is no manual avaliable... Could one of you please help me with that ?

I'm a owner of a VO-4800PS, I've seen a lot of Questions on (service-) manuals. I think you can find them for a good price here:http://schaltungsdienst.deThe online-database is quite a experience, but they have what you need. I'm satisfied about the manuals that I get from their.I don't know, if they have the docs of the NTSC-Machines.Good LuckReiner Müller Erlangen, Germany

You need a 5850 as your edit recorder. A 5800 can do a sort of assemble edit usingthe pause button but it's not great; no flying erase head as far as I know.

Hi people, i am after a Sony BVU-800 NTSC for a friend (London based).I know the chances of this are probably slim as we are in a PAL country but i am posting this message on the off chance. The machine must be NTSC as it is to be used with a pcm device. Thanks in advance.

Re manuals. I think it's unlikely you will find a copy as a .pdf file.Even today, sercive manuals are still copy-righted unlikey to me madegenerally available. You best bet is probably to find some one who has anunwanted manual which they can let you have.

Thankyou Steve,

For the information, I cannot seem to get to the wizoo.com sitetoday but I will try later...

I am sure there are many music guys out there who have put somethingtogether for a TV company on low-band... who need to sync up to aMIDI sequencer for music starts and stops.

I will keep investigating.

Thanks again

Glyn.

Glyn,

The only way I can think of to sync to a low band is with a MIDI time code generator, like a JL Cooper MTC/SMPTE generator. This would work if say, dialogue and sound effects had been recorded together on audio track one with the video signal and track two (often re-recordable) was left empty to hold a sync signal.

You could then theoretically write MTC to the empty track and build up MIDI sequences along with the footage and sound already on the tape.

The whole thing would then have to be mastered to a second VCR adding your audio work to the original.

To find out some more (much more than I know!) visit:http://www.uni-karlsruhe.de/~un7d/info/game/doc/mtc.htm

I haven't actually tried this myself but if anyone has, it would be good to hear from you. Hope this is helpful in some way.

Does anyone know of a production house which sells umatic (BRS) 10 minute tapes as well as dubs them for a low price. Right now I am paying $5 for both dub, tape, and black hard case. By the way my tapes are evaluated; one pass.

Thanks everybody.

Hello all U-matic folk...

I would like to compose music for TV & film companies. I met up with a TV composer by chance a couple of weeks ago who advised me that I need to invest £ 200 -£300 on a Low Band U-Matic recorder...as this would be the format that I would be working too. So my questions arewould anyone have a low band u-matic recorder which I could sync mysequencer too, that I can buy & what is the time sync format that is used.

Any advise would be welcome.

Regards

Glyn

I have a Sony BVU800P player/recorder with a small defect. In playback mode the TV picture is shaking up an down the TV screen (it looks as if vertical sync doesn't function correctly). Playing back the same tape on a different machine doesn't show the problem, so the original recording is OK. Recording a stable video signal also results in a shaking picture, but then 'frozen' on the tape (verified with a correctly functioning machine). When I playback a tape by using the Jog/Shuttle mode, I do not encounter the problem (vertical sync seems to be OK).

Is there anybody who recognizes this problem? Any clue what could be wrong with the machine? Any suggestions for repair?

Regards,Nick Koper

Steve,

I don't have access to my old Umatic catalogues at the moment but I don't think the 5630is an editor. Edit machines have a flying erase head ..an extra head on the video head discwhich erases the video track a tad before the new one is laid down.

Many VCRs (of all breeds) will do a 'sort' of assemble edit quite well,but the lack of a flying erase head means that the old track is simply overwritten by the new ..and there are traces of the old left behind...

This leads to the sort of fluttering-coloured bands yousee at the edit points...

On the other hand if your machine is a proper editor thenyou should always work on a blacked tape in insert modeNever assemble edit unless you really have no choice (i.ehave come to the end of a blacked section) The reason forthis is that it ensures a continuous and stable sync track..

As for that 7 pin cable ..i don't think youcan connect the machine to anything otherthan another VCR or a TBC via that outlet..

It _doesn't_ carry Y/C in the form that we would normally understand it.

It carries Y and the C component in the form of the 'colour under' signal.

Matt.

I can confirm that Paul's software works seriously well and cancontrol all sorts of lovely toys with indecent accuracy.

We're very lucky to have Paul Here as a member of the list, apart from being an utterly decent sort of a bloke his softwareis beautifully engineered. An example of how it should be done!

...you don't fancy developing some NLE software which would release usall from the dreaded windoze do you Paul ;-)
