■ Place of Installation
Do not install this unit in a location exposed to direct sunlight as this may deform the cabinet or damage the LCD screen.
■ Liquid crystal displays
• While 99.99% or more of the pixels on an LCD screen will function normally, 0.01% may either be dead or constantly lit (seen
as red, blue or green dots). This is not a malfunction.
• There may be some unevenness on the screen depending on the image displayed.
• Wiping or rubbing the LCD screen with a rough cloth may damage it.
• Leaving an unchanging image on the screen for a long period of time may create a temporary afterimage (burn-in).
• LCD response and brightness vary with ambient temperature.
• In a high-temperature and high-humidity location, the LCD panel characteristics may change and result in uneven image quality.

This unit provides a thumbnail screen for managing clips. A
clip is a single data item that contains video, audio, metadata
and other additional information. Normally, a clip is one shot
generated from the start of recording until recording stops. A
shot that spans multiple P2 cards is handled as a single clip.
The thumbnail screen shows a list of thumbnails. Each
thumbnail, which is the first frame of each clip, represents that
clip. These thumbnails allow you check and also perform the
following clip management operations.
• Play back, copy, delete and repair clips
• Insert text memos in clips
• Check and delete text memos
• Display and delete markers
• Format P2 cards
• Show clip property
• Show P2 card status
◆ NOTE:
• Thumbnails are generated from part of the captured video and
therefore appear rougher than the actual video.
• Thumbnail screens are output also via the VIDEO MONITOR
connector but may run off the screen depending on the type of
monitor that is connected.

Audio V Fade Function
This section describes the differences between audio processing provided by setup menu No. 731 (PB FADE) settings. Setup
menu No. 731 (PB FADE) settings make it possible to perform audio V fade or cut processing between clips and events during
clip selection and playback or play list playback.
Described below are examples that illustrate the differences in processing.
These examples involve a clip that spans multiple P2 cards and a second clip generated by edit copy.

Condensation
Condensation occurs due to the same principle involved when droplets of water form on a window pane of a heated room. It
occurs when this unit or a card is moved between places where the temperature or humidity varies greatly or when, for instance:
• It is moved to a very humid place full of steam or a room immediately after it has been heated up.
• It is suddenly moved from a cold location to a hot or humid location.
• When moving the unit to locations such as these, leave it standing for about 10 minutes rather than switching on the power
immediately.
Maintenance
• Use a soft cloth to clean the outside of this unit.
• For stubborn dirt or stains, wipe the unit with a cloth that has been lightly dampened in well-diluted kitchen detergent and
wrung out thoroughly. After wiping off the dirt with the damp cloth, finish it off with a dry cloth.
◆ NOTE:
• Do not use alcohol, benzene, thinner or any other solvents as they
may discolor or damage the coating of the unit.
For Long and Trouble-Free Operation: Condensation

• Before starting any maintenance work, switch the power to off and, holding the plug, unplug the cord from the socket.
