SOME DO’S AND DON’TS ON THE SAFE
USE OF EQUIPMENT
This equipment has been designed and manufactured to meet international safety standards
but, like any electrical equipment, care must be taken if you are to obtain the best results and
safety is to be assured.
DO read the operating instructions before you attempt to use the equipment.
DO ensure that all electrical connections (including the mains plug, extension leads and interconnections between pieces of equipment) are properly made and in accordance with the manufacturer’s
instructions. Switch off and withdraw the mains plug when making or changing connections.
DO consult your dealer if you are ever in doubt about the installation, operation or safety of your
equipment.
DO be careful with glass panels or doors on equipment.
DON’T continue to operate the equipment if you are in any doubt about it working normally, or if it is
damanged in any way — switch off, withdraw the mains plug and consult your dealer.
DON’T remove any fixed cover as this may expose dangerous voltages.
DON’T leave equipment switched on when it is unattended unless it is specifically stated that it is designed
for unattended operation or has a standby mode. Switch off using the switch on the equipment and
make sure that your family knows how to do this. Special arrangements may need to be made for
infirm or handicapped people.
DON’T use equipment such as personal stereos or radios so that you are distracted from the requirements of
road safety. It is illegal to watch television whilst driving.
DON’T listen to headphones at high volume, as such use can permanently damage your hearing.
DON’T obstruct the ventilation of the equipment, for example with curtains or soft furnishings. Overheating
will cause damage and shorten the life of the equipment.
DON’T use makeshift stands and NEVER fix legs with wood screws — to ensure complete safety always fit
the manufacturer’s approved stand or legs with the fixings provided according to the instructions.
DON’T allow electrical equipment to be exposed to rain or moisture.
ABOVE ALL
— NEVER let anyone especially children push anything into holes, slots or any other opening in the case —
this could result in a fatal electrical shock;
— NEVER guess or take chances with electrical equipment of any kind — it is better to be safe than sorry!
DO NOT attempt to insert foreign objects into the connectors, as this can lead to
electric shock or fire. If an object is accidentally inserted, unplug it and contact your
JVC dealer. Be especially careful with children.
If during use you notice that the VIDEO CAPTURE DOCKING STATION is damaged,
unplug it and contact your JVC dealer. Use of the VIDEO CAPTURE DOCKING STATION
under these conditions can lead to fire or electric shock.
DO NOT attempt to repair or modify the VIDEO CAPTURE DOCKING STATION. Doing
so may result in malfunctions or injury. If a problem occurs, contact your JVC dealer.

What is video capture software ?
Video capture software is a type of application program that allows you to capture video
images from camcorders and VCRs and store them in personal computers running under the
WindowsT operating system. These images can be transferred from the video source to the
computer via a standard RS-232C communication interface. By processing the captured
images with commercially available image editing software, you can create your own unique
and highly personal illustrations and graphics for incorporation into everything from postcards
to newsletters and Internet homepages. What’s more, you can also use your computer to edit
your original video recording and produce a fun-to-watch, professional-looking video program.
What is JLIP ?
JLIP* stands for Joint Level Interface Protocol, a new communication protocol which allows AV
units equipped with a JLIP terminal to be controlled by a personal computer.

OPEN & CLOSE (Basic Operation Procedure)
The Video Capture software can be started up in the same way as any other program running
under Windows. The procedure differs slightly depending on whether you’re using WindowsT
3.1 or WindowsT 95.
Preparation
•
•
•
•
Turn on your computer.
Turn on the video source units (such as camcorders and VCRs).
If you want to capture a still picture from a recorded tape, load the tape into the video unit.
If you want to capture an image from the data stored in the JLIP Video Producer Software, be
sure to load the disk on which the image is stored.
Close any programs that are running. You cannot run other programs simultaneously with
the Video Capture software.
With WindowsT 3.1, open the group of application icons in the Program Manager and
double-click the application icon you want to launch.
With WindowsT 95, click the [START] button on the taskbar, and the Program menu
appears on the screen. Move the mouse pointer over the program entry you want to run
and click to start the program.

INITIALIZATION

INITIALIZING JLIP
The first time you start the Video Capture software, JLIP initialization is required. This sets which
of the computer’s COM ports (connector into which the RS-232C cable is plugged) is connected
to the JLIP Video Capture Docking Station. The initialization window automatically appears the
first time you start the software after installation. Do not forget to carry out this JLIP initialization
procedure. The JLIP must be initialized again whenever you connect a new image source or
other unit to the JLIP Video Capture Docking Station.
1. Start the JLIP Video Capture software.
2. The "JLIP Initialization" screen automatically appears.
3. Select "COM Port".
•COM1 through COM4 ports are available. Check to see which COM port is connected to
the JLIP Video Capture Docking Station and select it.
4. Select "Transfer Rate".
•Normally select 38400.
•38400 may not be available on some computers. When transmission errors take place
during use, switch to 19200 or 9600. Image data transmission will be slower at these
speeds.
5. Click "OK" .
Call up the "JLIP Initialization" window and check the connected units.

able: "JPEG (9. jpg)" and "Bitmap
(9. bmp)". Refer to "Picture Data
Format" below for details.
TRANSFER DATA
Full image data can be captured and transferred in two different formats.
Picture Data Format
● JPEG (9. jpg)
• This is the default setting. If you do not set Picture Format, image data is captured in this
format.
• JPEG (Joint Photographic Expert Group) is a leading standard defining the compression and
decompression of still colour pictures.
• The quantity of transferred data appears smaller because the images are compressed. This
results in a shorter transfer time.
● Bitmap (9. bmp)
• Transfer time is longer when you use this format because there is no data compression. The
benefit is that picture quality is maintained with no deterioration.
• Bitmap is a data format representing characters and graphics with combinations of pixels.
Full image data resolution is 768 x 552 pixels with 16.77 million colours (24-bit colour).
Index image data resolution is 80 x 60 pixels with 16.77 million colours (24-bit colour).
Capture Mode
● Frame Picture
• This is the default setting. If you do not set Picture Format, images are captured in this
mode.
• Since a frame consists of two overlapping 1/50 sec. images (one 1/25 sec. image forms a
field), it is unstable when capturing fast-moving motion pictures.
● Field Picture
• While a field contains only half the data of a frame — meaning that vertical resolution is
half that of a frame — images captured from a fast-moving motion picture are more stable
than when captured with "Frame Picture".
