Betamax Videos


  The Multi-connector was a combined Audio, Video and Remote Control connector. It was incorporated on Betamax VCR's which were included in Sony's Profeel series of monitors and accessories. The concept of a single connector carrying Audio and Video was later to reappear in the SCART or Peritel standard. This unlike the Multi-connector was bi-directional.

The plug is usually wired with four individually screened cables. One for each signal, Audio L, Audio R, Video and CTR-S.

The connections of the Multi-connector are as follows:

1Audio out left

3Audio out right
4Audio ground
