The JVC RM-G820U brings sophisticated features and high performance to tape-based editing systems.

JVC RMG820U Description:

The JVC RM-G820U brings sophisticated features and high performance to tape-based editing systems. In addition to all of the standard features associated with traditional cuts-only edit controllers, the RM-G820U adds audio monitor level control, variable motion control when using a D-9 (Digital S) VTR and Pre-read editing when using a Pre-read capable VTR. The RM-G820U is the ideal controller for the BR-D85, BR-D92 and other Digital-S VTRs.

JVC RMG820U Features:

Pre-Read Editing
When editing with Pre-read capable VTRs (like Digital-S, DVCam, HDCam, D-2 and Digital Betacam) the RM-G820U features A/B style editing with only one source machine. (The record machine itself acts as the second source machine.) In Pre-read mode the controller allows the record VTR to play back a signal while simultaneously recording a new signal in its place. This technique allows for the creation of multiple layers and effects using only two VTRs.

VTR Compatibility
The RS-422 (9 pin) interface allows the connection of a wide range of VTR format types.

Variable Motion Control (VMC)
When editing with D-9 (Digital-S) VTRs the RM-G820U supports Variable Motion Control (VMC) editing and seven event motion memory.

Edit List Management
Built-in memory allows the storage of all data for each edit up to 99 events. Edit Decision List (EDL) management functions include the creation of a comprehensive edit list that can be recalled and performed automatically as well as Renumber and Ripple. An optional keypad (SA-K80U) can be added for easier data entry.

Control External Equipment
Four GPI (General Purpose Interface) pulse outputs with variable timing allow programmed triggering of external devices such as a special effects generator, video switcher, character generator or audio mixer.

Easy To Read Display
Two independent eight digit LED counters display all edit data in either the TC (time code) or CTL (control track) mode for the player and recorder as well as error messages and elapsed tape time.

Accurate and Precise Machine Control
Two jog/shuttle control dials move the tape in the same direction and at the same speed as the dial is turned for frame-accurate location of edit points. Jog mode can also be used to trim edit points and to enter edit location data manually.

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.

How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covered.

How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.

Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.

What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.

Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.

May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covered product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.

Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
