B.E.S.T. Picture System
The B.E.S.T. (Biconditional Equalised Signal Tracking) system checks the condition of the tape in use during playback and recording, and compensates to provide the highest-possible playback and recording pictures. You can set âB.E.S.T.â to âONâ or âOFFâ to your preference ( pg. 37).
The recorder assesses the quality of the tape once you initiate recording. DURING B.E.S.T.
The recorder assesses the quality of the tape once you initiate playback.
â The recorder spends approximately 7 seconds assessing the condition of the tape, then begins recording.
â The recorder adjusts the playback picture quality based on the quality of the tape in use. â B.E.S.T. is active during Auto Tracking. âBESTâ appears blinking on the recorderâs front display panel.
â With HR-J670/671/672/673/674/470/472EU: The B.E.S.T. system works for both SP and LP modes only after a tape has been inserted and the Record mode is first initiated. It does not work during recording. With HR-J270/272EU: The B.E.S.T. system works only after a tape has been inserted and the Record mode is first initiated. It does not work during recording. â The B.E.S.T. system does not work while Auto Satellite Programme Recording is in progress ( pg. 30). â In the case of timer recordings, the B.E.S.T. system works before recording is initiated. â Once the cassette is ejected, the B.E.S.T. data is cancelled. The next time the cassette is used for recording, B.E.S.T. is reperformed. â Pressing the recorderâs 7 button while âBESTâ is displayed does not start Instant Timer Recording ( pg. 21).
â When watching a tape recorded with âB.E.S.T.â set to âONâ, it is recommended that you leave B.E.S.T. on during playback as well. â When watching a rental tape or one recorded on another video recorder, or when using this recorder as the player for editing, set B.E.S.T. to your preference ( pg. 37). â âBESTâ only appears at the beginning of automatic tracking. Even though it doesnât appear after that, the B.E.S.T. function is operative.
Since the B.E.S.T. system works before recording actually starts, there is a delay of approximately 7 seconds after 7 and 4 on the remote control are pressed, or 7 on the recorder is pressed. To make sure you record the desired scene or programme in its entirety, first perform the following steps: A Press and hold 9 and press 7 to engage the Record Pause mode. â The recorder then automatically checks the condition of the tape and, after approximately 7 seconds, re-enters Record Pause. B Press 4 to start recording. If you want to bypass the B.E.S.T. system and begin recording immediately, set âB.E.S.T.â to âOFFâ ( pg. 37).
