Product Details - The Sony GV-D800 makes digital video more portable than ever. This handy video walkman acts as a digital VCR, recording footage from TVs or camcorders onto Digital8 cassettes, while also letting users view digital video on the included 4-inch active matrix LCD screen. As an extra bonus, the device also lets users edit Digital8 video while on the move without requiring an expensive laptop computer. The editing function offers a simple way to assemble up to 20 scenes automatically, and then play them back with such features as frame-by-frame advance and slow motion. Editing is enhanced by the 2x playback and playback zoom, which allows the editor to zoom into a selected area of video for closer inspection.
The GV-D800 takes advantage of digital technology advances to ensure playback with up to 500 lines of resolution and three times the color bandwidth of VHS tapes. Digital video also offers significantly less video noise and deterioration. The GV-D800 is also backward-compatible with older Hi8 and 8mm recordings, letting users watch previously recorded material in either SP or LP modes. The device is no slouch from an audio perspective, either, with 16-bit recording capability that offers the same high-quality sound as a compact disc. In addition, it lets users transfer the recorded signal via iLink to a compatible digital video device so they can add narration or a music soundtrack without disturbing the original sound.
The GV-D800 offers several inputs and outputs for efficient component connection, including S-video and composite video inputs and outputs, an iLink (IEEE 1394) DV input and output, and a Super LaserLink wireless connection that transmits audio and video wirelessly via infrared to an optional LaserLink receiver at a distance of up to 26 feet. The LaserLink system reduces the need for long video cables or clumsy adapters. In addition, the device is compact and lightweight, measuring a mere 5.87 x 2.62 x 5.38 inches (W x H x D) and weighing a bit over 2 pounds.
Power Adapter, Battery and Recorder
I ordered this machine to record my old 8 mm tapes of my kids. It operates quite easily out of the box. The picture on the LCD was nice and clear and it connected to my TV with ease. It looks like a high quality product and the price was good. I am very happy with it so far.
