JVC's new SR-VS20U is perfect for post-production facilities, video production studios, newsrooms, educational, corporate and industrial applications.

This breakthrough VTR offers "One-Touch" dubbing without cables between the MiniDV and S-VHS/VHS formats, with the touch of a single button. The SR-VS20U also allows editing or dubbing to or from either format quickly and easily.
