As well as delivering both digital video output and input with audio, the Elura 40MC is designed to handle two types of analog audio and video input and output: using audio/video cables (composite) or S-video.
The analog audio inputs of the Elura 40MC let you perform dubbing or insert editing from conventional audio sources such as CDs, cassettes, microphones or the soundtracks of other videocassettes. Mic Input on body
In addition to using the built-in microphone on the Elura 40MC, you have the option of plugging in an external microphone. Audio Dub
You can add stereo sound from another audio source or through the internal or external microphone. AV Insert
The Elura 40MC offers the option of adding new video from a VCR or another camcorder to a tape recorded in SP mode. Input can be digital or analog video and analog audio.
It's also possible to send an analog video signal from your TV, VCR or camcorder into the Elura 40MC and record it onto DV. (Great for making copies or preserving precious originals.)
Audio (and video) on a MiniDV cassette can be output to another camcorder or VCR. Audio Out
