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 differnet specifications. Known as TBC-8 and TBC-12 the latter
is preferable as it has enhanced performance.
