EDL Commands

1.0GENERAL INFORMATION

Using an internal Edit Decision List (EDL), the Pioneer PRV-LX1 DVD Recorder can control an external VTR via RS-422A or IEEE-1394 to perform batch recording from tape to disc. This function, called Auto Capture, can be accessed through the PRV-LX1 Function Menu. While the command structure and format of the EDL is unique to Pioneer, an EDL file can be created from a simple text file that is saved with an *.EDL extension. The EDL file can then be imported into the PRV-LX1 EDL library.

This document provides guidelines for building your own edit decision lists. The next section shows an example of an EDL with a description of each line. The last section discusses each segment of an EDL line entry. Please read this document completely before creating EDLs for the Pioneer PRV-LX1.

Wait instructions

For changing source tapes

1.2Creating An EDL for the PRV-LX1

The EDL file can be created with a word processing application. Save the document as a text file (.txt) then change the file extension to .EDL so that the PRV-LX1 recognizes the file. For additional information about importing EDL files, please refer to the section entitled, Importing Image Data, Edit Lists in the PRV-LX1 Operating Instructions.
