Description
Built-in Digital TBC eliminates even small amounts of jitter, skew, head impact error, and color blurring. Digital Noise Reduction (DNR) processes Y and C signals separately to boost S/N ratio, thereby minimizing noise during playback. Digital Logical Comb Filter uses an advanced 2-D system for complete Y/C separation, resulting in reduced color and luminance blurring . Switching Noise Masking effectively eliminates noise from head switching . Four Audio Channels (2 stereo Hi-Fi, 2 linear with Dolby Noise reduction) .The Intelligent Quest Mechanism delivers precise, high-speed operation, and reliability . The dual-loading system achieves high-speed response while protecting tapes and heads from damage . 32X High-Speed Search . Jog/Shuttle Dial helps you find exact edit points with the touch of a dial .

Precision and reliability are boosted for improved picture quality. Digital processing also helps maintain uniform picture quality during editing. Color blurring is virtually eliminated by the CAC (Chroma Aperture Compensation) circuit and expanded chroma bandwidth. Color uniformity is also assured, thanks to the Digital Field Forward APC circuit which raises chroma S/N. processes Y and C signals separately to boost S/N ratio, thereby minimizing noise during playback.

3 Dimensional Digital TBC eliminates even small amounts of jitter, skew, head impact error, and color blurring. Its precise time base correction is invaluable for A/B roll editing, as well as other professional editing operations.

Amorphous Video Heads with higher magnetic coercivity than conventional ferrite heads. Improvement in color reproduction is significant. IQ Mechanism delivers precise, high-speed operation, plus the reliability that professionals demand. Large capstan spindle (8.9 mm in diameter), the AI Capstan Control System allows high-speed search at 32X normal speed. Jog/ Shuttle feature helps you find exact edit points with the touch of a dial.

With the NTSC 525 16:9 Wide Aspect System. Internal time code generator/reader allows LTC/VITC recording (AG-DS555 only) and playback, making for high-precision time code editing. The AG-DS555/ AG-DS545 permit accurate editing with VITC. In addition, two linear audio channels can be used. The AG-DS555/AG-DS545 come equipped with an RS-422A 9-pin serial interfaces. This provides an easy way to expand your system via connection to Mll and other serial control systems.

4-Channel Audio features two hi-fi stereo audio channels with a dynamic range of 90 dB, as well as two linear audio channels with Dolby NR. Each audio channel has its own input (AG-DS555 only) and output with individual channel-level setting capability. Reliable XLR connectors are used as the audio input and output jacks to help assure high quality sound during editing.

Other Features Audio Split Editing lets you set the edit-in and edit-out points separately from those for video. Insert Editing and Assemble Editing, OSD
