Video and Audio Inputs and Outputs

As well as delivering both digital video output and input with audio, the Optura 200MC is designed to handle two types of analog audio and video input and output: using audio/video cables (composite) or S-video.


Audio Inputs
The Optura 200MC's analog audio inputs 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 Optura 200MC's built-in microphone, 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.


Audio Dubbing


AV Insert
The Optura 200MC 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 is also possible to send an analog video signal from your TV, VCR or camcorder into the Optura 200MC and record it onto DV. (Great for making copies or preserving precious originals.)


Audio Outputs
Audio (and video) on a MiniDV cassette can be output to another camcorder or VCR.

Audio Out
Audio output is accomplished via the same ports used for input. Video outputs include composite and S-video.

Headphone Terminal (Adjustable level)
The Optura 200MC's headphone jack has a volume adjustment for monitoring sound during shooting, performing sound checks, or listening to the sound through stereo headphones during playback.

Video Inputs and Outputs

Analog Line-in

As well as delivering both digital video output and input, the Optura 200MC is designed to handle two types of analog video input and output: using audio/video cables (composite) or S-video.

Composite/S-Video Input and Output
Using audio/video cables (composite) or S-video, it's possible to send an analog video signal from your TV, VCR or a camcorder into the Optura 200MC and record it onto DV. Similarly, you can output an analog signal via either the composite or S-video cables to an analog device such as a TV or VCR.
