Dubbing To A Video Unit Equipped With A

DV Connector (Digital Dubbing)

It is also possible to copy recorded scenes from the camcorder onto another video unit equipped with a DV connector. Since a digital signal is sent, there is little if any image or sound deterioration.

[To use this camcorder as a player]

1 Make sure the camcorder’s power is off.

2 Connect the camcorder to your video unit equipped with a DV connector using a DV cable as shown in the illustration.

3 Set the camcorder’sPOWER Switch to “” while pressing down the Lock Button located on the switch. Press 4to play back the source tape.

4 While watching the playback on the monitor, engage the DVconnector-equippedvideo unit’s record mode from the spot on the source tape you want to begin recording.

NOTES:

It is recommended to use the AC Power Adapter/ Charger as the power supply instead of the battery pack ( pg. 7).

If the remote control is used when both the player and recorder are JVC video units, both units will perform the same operation. To prevent this from happening, press the buttons on both units.

For Digital Dubbing, this camcorder can be connected only to one device at a time.

If a blank portion or disturbed image is played back on the player during dubbing, the dubbing may stop so that an unusual image is not dubbed.

Even though the DV cable is connected correctly, sometimes the image may not appear in step 3. If this occurs, turn off the power and make connections again.

If “Playback Zoom” ( pg. 68), “Playback Special Effects” ( pg. 69) or “Snapshot” is attempted during playback, only the original playback image recorded on the tape is output from the DV OUT connector.

When using a DV cable, be sure to use the optional JVC VC-VDV204UDV cable.

Random Assemble Editing [R.A.Edit]

Create edited videos easily using your camcorder as the source player. You can select up to 8 “cuts” for automatic editing, in any order you like. R.A.Edit is more easily performed when the MBR (Multi-BrandRemote) is set to operate with your brand of VCR (see VCR CODE LIST), but can also be performed by operating the VCR manually.

Before operation, make sure the batteries are installed in the remote control ( pg. 66).

SET REMOTE/VCR CODE

1 Turn off the power to the VCR and point the remote towards the VCR’s infrared sensor. Then, referring to the VCR CODE LIST, press and holdMBR SET, and press button (A) and then (B). The code is automatically set once you releaseMBR SET, and the VCR’s power comes on.

2 Make sure the VCR’s power is on. Then, while holdingSHIFT, press the button on the remote for the desired function. The functions the remote can control are PLAY, STOP, PAUSE, FF, REW and VCR REC STBY (you do not need to pressSHIFT for this one).

You are now ready to try Random Assemble Editing.

IMPORTANT

Although the MBR is compatible with JVC VCRs and those of many other makers, it may not work with yours or may offer limited functions.

NOTES:

If the VCR’s power does not come on in step 1, try another code from the VCR CODE LIST.

Some brands of VCR do not come on automatically. In this case, turn the power on manually and try step 2.

If the remote control is not able to control the VCR, use the controls on the VCR.

When the remote control’s batteries run out, the VCR brand you have set will be erased.

In that case, replace the old battery with a new one to reset the VCR brand.

R.A.EDIT

ON/OFF

For More Accurate Editing

Some VCRs make the transition from Record-Pauseto Record mode faster than others. Even if you begin editing for the camcorder and the VCR at exactly the same time, you may lose scenes you wanted, or find that you have recorded scenes you did not want. For a cleanly edited tape, confirm and adjust the timing of the camcorder against your VCR.

DIAGNOSING VCR/CAMCORDER TIMING

1 Play back the tape in the camcorder, then point the remote control at the camcorder’s remote sensor and pressR.A.EDIT ON/OFF.

The Random Assemble Editing Menu appears.

2 Perform Random Assemble Editing on Programme 1 only. In order to check VCR and camcorder timing, select the beginning of a scene transition as your EditIn point.

3 Play back the dubbed scene.

•If any images from the scene prior to the transition you chose for your Edit-Inpoint were recorded, that means your VCR moves too quickly fromRecord-Pauseto Record mode.

•If the scene you tried to dub starts in progress, the VCR is slow to start recording.

Sound is not heard from the speaker during Audio Dubbing. To hear sound, connect optional headphones to the AV OUT connector.

While an optional microphone is connected, the built-inmicrophone is disabled.

When editing onto a tape that was recorded at 12-bit,the old and new soundtracks are recorded separately.

If you dub onto a blank space on the tape, the sound may be disrupted. Make sure you only edit recorded areas.

If feedback or howling occurs during TV playback, move the camcorder’s microphone away from the TV, or turn down the TV’s volume.

If you change from 12-bitto16-bitinmid-recordingand then use the tape for Audio Dubbing, it is not effective from the point where16-bitrecording began.

During Audio Dubbing, when the tape moves to scenes recorded in the LP mode, scenes recorded in 16-bit

audio or a blank portion, Audio Dubbing stops ( pg. 91).

For GR-DVX10owners: To perform Audio Dubbing with a video unit connected to the camcorder’s AV connector,

first set “AV/S-VIDEO”to “IN” in the Menu Screen

( pg. 41). You can hear sound from the video unit using optional headphones.
