IT ape Conversion
with the Worldwide
One of the most useful functions of the Worldwide
VCR
VCR is the combination
of tape duplication and
system conversion, more simply known as "Tape Conversion". This allows the user to copy, for
example, a SECAM tape and simultaneously convert it to PAL or NTSC. This is particularly useful for
duplicating home video camcorder recordings and sending them to friends or relatives abroad.

Hi-Fi Audio System
To provide true Hi-Fi audio sound with video entertainment and, at the same time, compatibility with regular
VHS tapes, your VCR employs a new(y-developed audio recording system.
Hi-Fi audio signals (2-channel) are recorded deep into the tape's magnetic coating and the video signal is
recorded on top of the audio signals in a shallower layer. At the same time, another audio head records linear
audio signals (monaural) onto the normal audio track. With the Audio Dubbing function, it is possible to erase
the old monaural soundtrack and record a new one.
