This type of machine is a high-end solution for capturing, archiving and transferring data from one medium to another.
With this device, you can hook up just about any piece of analog equipment and view a myriad of media files. Its an all-in-one media center for those looking to simplify workflow and save desk space. Upon first look at this machine, we were really impressed with its features and capabilities.
However, we expected to find more cables because the SR-DVM has so many different kinds of input and output options. This was a disappointment, because it meant we needed to spend more money on cables to take full advantage of all that the device had to offer.
On the back are component video-out connectors YPBPR that allow connection to a high-end television for better picture quality and progressive viewing mode.
A serial port allows connection with a computer, projector or any other device that uses an RSC cable. You can use these two audio outputs for connecting to your home stereo system or for digital audio dubbing.
All together, the DVM packs a very impressive array of options for capturing, viewing and transferring digital media. We were able to hook it up to our television easily, using just the RCA cables.
Next we slipped in an old DV tape and started to watch some footage. The playback was seamless, and recording footage from the tape onto the GB HDD was done with a simple navigation of menus, using the controller. We did have one qualm about the design of the menus. They werent awful, but we felt, for the price, the machine was a bit lacking in the user-friendly department.
The highest quality is DV, which comes out to about 18 hours of record time. The difference in all these settings is the Megabits Per Second Mbps capability. For example, the DV setting transfers data at 25 megabits per second, while the LP setting transfers at just 1.
A higher number means more information is transferred per second. This produces a better picture quality, while the opposite holds true for the lower numbers. Now, you do not just simply choose the highest setting for best picture quality; you must wisely choose the right setting for each kind of footage. For example, if you have footage of some fast action like a sports game, you would want to use DV or XP.
This is because lots of action means that the image is drastically changing from one frame to the next and so uses up more information per second.
A shot of someone talking with a static background uses less information because, more or less, the picture doesnt change. So what all this means is that, if you have a simple shot where not much changes, you can use a lower setting like SP or LP and not lose video quality. Combine all that with a GB HDD, and you have a machine that allows you to transfer data to various types of media fairly easily. Using the controller that comes with your SR-DVM, you simply press dubbing, and up pops a menu with all the dubbing options the machine provides.
They decided that it would be nice if you could do editing and file management right on the device. Some nice features include the ability to create clips from footage you captured on the HDD, using the divide function.
You can also categorize your footage by titles, category and playlist. It is a very efficient machine for archiving all your media data. If this is what you need, then it definitely wont be a disappointment. The question is, of course: is this what you need?
This is definitely a professional piece of equipment which is designed to make life easier when you have to deal with multiple media formats and data transfers.
So make sure you do some research and exhaust your other resources first like your home computer before you start throwing down the cash for this record deck. SP: Approx. LP: Approx. EP: Approx. XP: Approx. FR Approx. It saves space and creates an easier workflow, but it comes at a high price. Wayne, NJ pro.
JVC SR-DVM700 Brochure & Specs
Many instructions, immediately after the purchase, go into the trash along with the box, which is a mistake. If you do not want to read brochures every time concerning a JVC SR-DVM or other products, it is enough to read them once only - just after buying the device. Then you can put away the manual on a shelf and use it again only in a situation where you're not sure whether you perform maintenance of the product appropriately. Once a year, clean the closet where you keep all your devices manuals and throw out the ones that you don't use. This will help you maintain order in your home base of manuals.
