Otari MX-5050 B II

The MX5050 BIII has long been the standard in 1/4" two-track analog recorders. It features an optimized three-head design and transformerless balanced inputs and outputs to provide superior frequency response, low distortion and high signal-to-noise performance under the most demanding conditions. Record setup adjustments can be made from the front panel, and a convenient built-in oscillator provides test tones for calibration/maintenance.

The direct drive capstan motor is servo-controlled, and an integral microprocessor governs tape handling, including dynamic braking, motion sensing and transport logic. A built-in mini-autolocator provides three one-touch cue-point memories, search zero, and a repeat function. The tape timer display shows tape time in Hrs/Min/Sec., as well as tape speed in inches per second and percentage of tape speed. Capstan speed can be varied by +/-20% in 0.01% steps using the built-in "pitch" control. Timecode editing using a synchronizer is accomplished via the 37-pin Otari standard parallel interface.
The extremely rugged mechanical construction includes a 1/4" deckplate with cast aluminum side panels and steel support members. All circuit boards are designed to swing out or unplug for quick service access.
* Positive-action transport controls
* Balanced transformerless XLR I/Os
* DC capstan, Quartz PLL servo-controlled
* Built-in mini-autolocator
* Built-in test oscillator and external oscillator input
* Variable pitch control (+/-20%)
* Front panel record setup adjustments
* 1/4" deck plate with cast aluminumside panels and steel support members

Videonics Edit Suite A/B Roll Edit Controller Model AB-1 $200
  • Controls Four Play VCRs
  • Store up to 250 Scenes
  • RCTC, VITC, and LTC Time Code Support
  • Work with Sony LANC(Control-L) Panasonic 5-Pin (Control-M) RS-232C, RS-422A VCRs
  • Jog/Shuttle for Precise VCR Control
  • SN-AB-025968

Edit Suite gives you the professional editing and multiple VCR 'ontrol capabilities you need for an incredible price. Compatible with both consumer and broadcast-level VCRs, Edit Suite fits easily into a wide range of applications, from weekend videography to professional off-line editing. It reads all major time codes and has a 250 event memory. The computer interface allows you to download and upload Edit Decision List (EDL) data for multiple project management. You can also export industry standard CMX files.

Edit Suite controls up to four play VCRs and one record VCR. When connected to the Videonics MX-1 Digital Video Mixer, it operates an A/B/C/D roll editor. Edit Suite may also be operated with other multiple source, GPI-compatible mixers. When used without a mixer, Edit Suite functions as a cuts-only random assemble editor.

Edit Suite interfaces with Sony LANC (Control-L), Panasonic 5-pin (Control-M), RS-232C, and RS422A protocols. An IR wand controls record decks without these capabilities. If you upgrade your equipment, Edit Suite adapts. It supports advanced features of professional VCRs.

The Edit Suite EDL holds up to 250 scene events. A simple cut-and-paste operation allows you to rearrange scenes within the production at will. You can also add or delete scenes at any time.

Editing with time code increases the accuracy and repeatability of your edits. Edit Suite reads several major time code formats, including Rewritable Consumer Time Code (RTC), Vertical Interval Time Code (VITC), and Longitudinal Time Code (LTC).

The jog/shuttle wheel allows both precise and coarse VCR control. The weighted center portion allows frame-by-frame control. The outer portion provides graduated speed positions between pause, two forward, and two reverse detents.

Edit Suite has two independently programmable General Purpose Interface (GPI) triggers. The first may be used for a mixer connection and second for any other GPI-compatible device such as Videonics TitleMaker 2000 or a special effects generator (SEG). GPI events may either be fixed or relative In/Out tape address triggers and placed anywhere within and EDL.

Edit Suite's computer interface allows you to export EDL data files to your computer disk for storage. If you want to work with a stored EDL, just import it back into Edit Suite. This feature makes it easy to work wit multiple projects and to maintain an EDL data archive.

With Edit Suite, you can spend the majority of your post-production time refining your production without the constraints imposed by expensive on-line suites. Simply assemble your production off-line using Edit Suite. Once the production is finished, a CMX-compatible file may be exported to your computer and taken to an on-line suite for final assembly.

Features like Preview and Review have previously been found only in more expensive editors. Preview allows you to audition edits before committing them to tape, and Review automatically plays back the last recorded edit for verification. When productions call for special editing effects, Edit Suite is ready. With properly equipped VCRs, Edit Suite supports Insert edits (audio-only, video-only, or both) and Split edits, where the audio is offset from the video. In addition, Edit Suite does automatic match frame edits when necessary.

Even with Edit Suite's high level of sophistication and functionality, it maintains a user interface which is simple and elegant. All EDL "events" are stored in non-volatile memory and appear in sequence on a backlit, 40-character LCD making them easy to read under all lighting conditions. A streamline key layout provides reduced operational complexity compared to similar units.
