The Telechrome-JVC 2-Head Video Tape Recorder is quite unusual and different when it is compared to other VTR's. It has a number of features not found in any other video tape system of recording. Some of these are as follows: 1. Ability to obtain pictures with the tape running slowly, standing still, or even running in reverse for obtaining special effects. 2. Ability to simultaneously record, monitor, and playback while recording, allowing optimum recording adjustments to be made while recording and also, at the same time, being able to make sure the picture is "in the can". 3. There is inherently no horizontal banding, scalloping, skewing, or venetian blinding of the pictures because of the recording method used. 4. Because of the design philosophy, first cost as well as maintenance costs are drastically lower than transverse type head recorders; lower priced individually replaceable heads, lower tape costs, simpler circuitry as well as a processing amplifier not being required. 5. The great ease in obtaining still frame pictures allows precise editing to be done.
