Building on its experience with VCR , Grundig machines featured a Betamax-style loading ring to gently pull the tape around the video heads in a ‘U-wrap’ over all three generations of their recorders, which was effective, simple and economical. All the machines featured a “Goto” button whereby a specific tape-counter number could dialled in and the machine would speed off and find it. However, the cassette – as well as the adaptor – left the tape noticeably exposed to mishandling. Instead of this conventional approach Philips took the inivitive step of adding a selection of tones which were recored on the same track as the video signals themselves. Video video tapes were know as the Video Compact Cassettes and were modelled on the audio Compact cassette which Philips had given to the world over twenty years earlier.

It v2000 video a flip-over v2000 video fractionally bigger than a VHS cassette, which could record up to 4 hours on each side.

No real attempt was made to disguise this machine; it even v2000 video the classic Grundig unfathomable timer, and peculiar tape transport legends such as “Tape” which meant “Stop” and “Cassette” which meant “Eject”. Furthermore, there were initially some compatibility issues with the tape v200, allegedly even with the lap synchrony, if cassettes recorded with Philips equipment were to be played on Grundig machines.

V2000 video the machines featured a “Goto” button whereby a specific tape-counter number could dialled in and the machine would speed off and find it. The tape path was a M-wrap type with erase and audio heads placed before and after the v2000 video respectively.

Although the VR had an identical feature set to the VR, it had more v2000 video common electronically with the VR which had extra “Trick-play” facilities such as noise-free picture search v2000 video still pause. Cables pulled pins along tracks in order to pull the tape into the transport path. Technically this would have been a major challenge to enable a single head drum to scan both ‘sides’ of the tape at the correct angle.

The feature made v2000 video V format unique in its day was the abscence of a control track.

The feature was also able to provide perfect noise free still and picture search by adjusting dynamically v200 angle between the head and tape vkdeo compensate for the changes caused by the variation in angle between the drum v2000 video the video tacks. In Grundig started development and production of VHS recorders alongside V, v2000 video in Philips announced that it would discontinue the manufacturing of Video recorders, focusing instead on VHS exclusively.

They were roughly the same size and v2000 video as their older relatives and had the same “slopey front” v2000 video, however, inside they were far more advanced. Like the other systems Long Play mode it doubled recording v20000 by having the linear tape speed. The new machines were operated with all-electronic soft-touch buttons, and a microprocessor was used to control the tape transport, the clock, the counter and the timer.

The end of v000 detection was achieved by an optical v2000 video which detected a reflective strip v2000 video to the inside of the tape at either end. Retrieved from ” https: The video head tips were able to move and so track correctly by virtue of the fact that they were mounted on piezo-electric crystals which were controlled by a varying voltage applied across them.

Although Video was technologically superior to the competition in v22000 ways, it could not compete with VHS and Betamax’s key advantages:.

A long play mode was also introduced albeit v2000 video XP for eXtended Play. Second and third generation Philips drives replaced the cable-pulled pins with a reliable lever mechanism.
