About the time code A tiem code is recorded on the tape to search for scenes easily. Your VCR records the time code during recording. Press DISPLAY to check the time code. Hour, minutes, seconds, and frames appear on the monitor screen or on the TV screen. 0:00:00:00 is recorded at the beginning of the tape. If there is a blank portion on the tape, however, 0:00:00:00 is recorded after the blank portion. You cannot rewrite the time code later. The time code of your VCR is a drop frame system. It may skip some frames to adjust the time code.

Sony is teaming its Digital8 video system with the compact convenience of the Video Walkman style. The Digital8 camcorder line has successfully helped consumers make the transition to digital videography. Ideal companions to the Digital8 camcorder line-up, the new GV-D200 Digital8 Video Walkman unit is backward compatible allowing for HI8 and 8MM tape playback. The lightweight and convenient Video Walkman units offer 20-segment assemble editing without the need for a PC or a professional studio. This allows videographers and home video buffs a convenient, uncomplicated way to assemble up to 20 scenes automatically. And, with such features as crystal clear still/slow motion and frame-by-frame advance, finding the perfect frame on the fly is easy. The GV-D200 model incorporates the i.LINK (IEEE-1394) digital video interface, which provides a seamless digital link between the Digital8 Video Walkman units and most IEEE-1394 digital video enabled camcorder, digital VCR or PC ensuring pure digital video quality with virtually no generational loss. The Digital8 Video Walkman VCRs are also fully functional playback and record decks, so videos can be viewed and enjoyed with any TV. 2X playback zoom allows for high-speed playback in forward and reverse, and playback zoom enables you to zoom into selected areas of the video for a superb editing option. For true portability, the optional NP-F960 battery provides up to 13 hours of playback. Sony's exclusive AccuPower meter continually displays the battery time remaining in minutes. S-Video connection offers superior video signal transfer by reducing "dot crawl, " which is commonly seen as distortion around the edge of the recorded video signal. Composite A/V provides the versatility to connect to virtually any other video device. When recording, Digital Noise Reduction helps to reduce chromatic noise by up to 20 percent. Time Based Correction replaces the video signal with a clear sync pulse. Thus timing errors that are commonly seen as jitter in home videos are corrected.
