Panasonic MiniDV VCR - Panasonic AG-DV2000
The AG-DV2000 is a DV-format VCR that offers easy, single-VCR editing with superior Digital picture quality. Utilizing a professional transport mechanism based on DVCPRO technology, the deck assures quick response time and outstanding reliability.
- Digital Video format offers over 500 lines of horizontal resolution, three times the bandwidth of S-VHS Analog VCRs and significantly higher S/N ratio, to provide stunning Video performance.
- Digital Component Video recording dramatically improves color rendition and accuracy, while reducing color smear.
- PCM Digital Stereo Audio offers a choice of either: two 12-bit/32k Hz stereo tracks for near CD sound quality, or one 16-bit/48k Hz stereo track for DAT quality recording.
- Allows high-density, high-quality DV recording in both SP mode and extended LP mode. In LP (1.5x recording time), you can record up to three hours on a single cassette.
- The AG-DV2000 records onto DV cassettes that can be played back in DVCPRO decks, such as the AJ-D230H and AJ-D650, with the optional cassette adapter.

- Complete Analog compatibility with two sets of Composite and S-Video inputs and outputs and two sets of stereo Audio inputs and outputs.
- Built around the same aluminum die-cast chassis and transport mechanism used in DVCPRO VCRs. The rugged casing protects the high-precision mechanism to assure tape travel reliability, head tracking and durability. The mechanism also assures extra-quick search and response times, and accurate editing of scenes.
- Advanced reel drive technology provides faster tape travel without damaging the tape. It improves control at all travel speeds and provides extra-responsive jog and shuttle operations. It also offers Super Linear Slow, an incredibly smooth and natural 11/5x slow motion playback.
