BVW Series Betacam

The BVW-75 is the established workhorse of the analogue Betacam SP machines. It is an edit master recorder/player that incorporates Dynamic Tracking and a Built in Timebase corrector for perfect noise free playback. It also boasts four channels of audio, ( Two AFM, hi-fi, audio tracks and two Linear tracks) plus a VITC (Vertical Interval Time Code) that allows accurate timecode reproduction at all times in conjunctions with the LTC reader.

The internal construction uses plug-in cards and makes maintenance and set-up access easy and a fully featured JOG/Shuttle edit wheel is available on the pullout sloping front panel to enable edit control of the local or a remote VTR.

There were two versions of the Time Base Corrector with different specifications. Known as TBC-8 and TBC-12 the latter is preferable as it has enhanced performance.
