MITSUBISHI S-VHS PC-VCR IS INDUSTRY'S MOST COST-EFFECTIVE SOLUTION FOR DESKTOP VIDEO PRODUCTION

 NEW ORLEANS, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The Professional Electronics Division of Mitsubishi Electronics America is demonstrating the HS-U67/PC-VCR, the first reasonably priced multimedia desktop peripheral that combines the outstanding picture quality of S-VHS with frame- accurate time code compatibility with serial remote control. The HS-U67/PC-VCR was developed in a joint marketing venture with GSE Electronic Systems, Inc. Mitsubishi and GSE demonstrated the capabilities of the HS-U67/PC-VCR at INFOCOMM.
 The HS-U67/PC-VCR is designed for use with video editing systems and is particularly suited for multimedia applications (desktop video production, interactive learning, and professional presentations), permitting both video editing and specific-point access similar to CD-ROM technology. All of the functions of the HS-U67/PC-VCR can be controlled from an MS-DOS or Macintosh computer through an RS-232C interface, via any of the many programs available for PC-VCR video editing.
 The PC-VCR also has an industry-standard RAPID(TM)-based time code reader and generator developed by GSE that allows it to perform functions found only on more expensive professional editing recorders. With the patented GSE Rapid time code system, the HS-U67/PC-VCR interleaves time code with normal synchronization pulses on the tape. This allows the PC-VCR to quickly and accurately locate a single video frame, an absolute requirement for effective video editing. The remote control capabilities of the HS-U67/PC-VCR are not limited to simple command of basic tape-transport functions. Nearly all of the operations of the HS-U67/PC-VCR can be controlled by the computer, including programming, tuner control, input/output selection and antenna selection, and timer.
 The picture quality of the HS-U67/PC-VCR is superb, with horizontal resolution of more than 400 TV lines, thanks to the inherent capabilities of S-VHS and signal processing circuits for drop-out compensation and detail enhancement. The HS-U67/PC-VCR's features include on-screen programming, a 181-channel tuner, eight-event/ four-week timer recording, an 11-bit drive system, twin digital auto-tracking, frame advance, slow play, hour meter, high-speed and quick search, Hi-Fi audio, remaining time indicator, intro scan, two antenna inputs, rapid-start transport, and many others. In addition to composite video and S-video inputs and outputs, the HS-U67/PC-VCR has inputs for A/V network, microphone and headphones. The HS-U67/PC-VCR is built to withstand rugged use and has a die-cast aluminum chassis.
 The HS-U67/PC-VCR comes with demonstration software, a serial cable, and an informative instruction manual. Because it is still in development, a list price for the HS-U67/PC-VCR has not been established. However, the unit will be available in the second quarter of 1993.
