JVC's new SR-DVM600 is a digital video recorder/player that incorporates the MiniDV and DVD formats with the added advantage of a 40GB hard disk drive. The compact SR-DVM600 also offers a number of very efficient editing and dubbing functions such as six-way recording. Whether used for media duplication or archiving of both analog and digital footage, this product is the ideal choice for professional applications seeking optimum performance and value.

Key Applications
The SR-DVM600 will produce a professional, high-quality DVD with smooth video edits, chaptering, and menu backgrounds regardless of the original video source material. What's more, the SR-DVM600 simplifies DVD disc creation of finished video material in a highly professional manner with-out the necessity of complex PC or editing skills. Here are some system examples of the SR-DVM600:

Various Recording/Playback Formats
The SR-DVM600 records and plays various DV, DVD and CD discs as well as transferring them to and from the Hard Disk Drive (Please refer to the specifica-tions for further details).

Compatible Video Sources DV IN: Digital hardware (NLE system with DV out, player/recorder with DV out). Y/C or Composite IN: Analog hardware (VHS/ S-VHS deck, VCR with YC or composite out). MiniDV Cassettes.

Multi-format Capability (DVD)
The SR-DVM600 is capable of recording and playing back different DVD for-mats. These include recording & playback of DVD-R, DVD-RW, and DVD-RAM as well as playback of +R or +RW.

Auto Error Correction System (MiniDV)
Reduces annoying block noise that may occur when playing back DV and DVCAM™ tapes.

DVCAM Playback (MiniDV)
The SR-DVM600's MiniDV deck is capable of playing back DVCAM format tapes recorded on small DVCAM cassettes. Recordings can be dubbed to either DVD or HDD, preserving the high quality of digital video and professional DV sources.

IEEE 1394 Interface
The standard IEEE 1394 bus interface pro-vides direct connection to NLE systems or to a PC for downloading, editing and archiving.
NOTE : Functions may vary depending on the NLE software used.

Video Output Terminal with BNC Connector (Composite)

External Wired Remote Terminal
For extra convenience, connect up an external wire remote controlled to enable additional controls such as playlist/title direct selection for HDD or DVD, and direct playback speed selection.

Auto Repeat Playback Disc Authoring
The Auto Repeat disc authoring function is very convenient when constant or repeated video play back material is required such as for digital signage or storefront demos.

Last Function Memory and Mode Lock
The SR-DVM600 is fully equipped with additional video editing functions designed to improve efficiency in the professional production environment. For example, Last Function Memory stores the last function performed in the mem-ory and always resumes operation from that point while Mode Lock helps to protect against unintentional erasure of recordings.

Bit-rate Optimizer for HDD to DVD Recording
This system analyzes the content as it is recorded on the HDD and then assigns optimum bit rates — low for simple scenes, high for complex scenes — to ensure optimum picture quality while calculating disc capacity.

Selectable Recording Times and Data Rates
Depending on the application, the most appropriate recording time and data rate can be selected. Copying of synchronized-edited material from HDD to DVD is normally performed in real time (1x). However, the SR-DVM600 can cre-ate copies at eight-times normal speed (8x)*. This means that by copying the synchronized-edited recording first to the DVD-R, then back to the HDD, and finally dubbing it at normal speed, reproduction of DVD discs can be performed up to eight times faster.
*When copied to DVD-R at the maximum recording speed: 64 times in FR480 mode.

18 Pre-installed Background Patterns (DVD)
For added convenience, the SR-DVM600 provides 18 pre-installed background pat-terns to add originality to your DVD video production.

Extended Recording with High Resolution Pictures (DVD-RAM/DVD-RW/DVD-R VR mode)
Horizontal resolution in the LP (4-hour) mode of a conventional DVD recorder is approximately 250 lines (1/2D1) but the SR-DVM600 provides more than 350 lines (2/3D1). Content that is longer than 2 hours can be recorded on a disc without any loss in picture quality.

Super MPEG Processors
  • Pre-processor (HDD/DVD)
    When recording from analog sources, a noise reduction process is applied before MPEG-2 encoding to guaran-tee superior quality images.
  • Post-processor (HDD/DVD)
    Several noise reduction features work together to provide the best possible image. Block noise reduction suppresses "block noise" caused by MPEG-2 compression, Color DigiPure reduces 3D color noise, and the "Hadamard" noise reduction eliminates "mosquito noise" from any DVD.
