  • About the high-speed playback mode

    When the audio output channel is set to 1ch playback in the Customize panel, it plays back in the high-speed playback mode. Because the load of CPU is reduced in the high-speed playback mode, it is suitable for the playback of DVCPRO HD and AVC-Intra contents.
    However, in the high-speed playback mode, the spanned clip which is generated when the target P2cards are changed during recording can not be played continuously. And it takes 0.5 seconds or more to change clips to another.
    In addition, it is likely to be waited for tens of seconds when there is not enough performance of the personal computer for the decoding of DVCPRO HD and AVC-Intra contents. The image is not displayed, and the black or white picture is displayed during the waiting time.
    When the voice memo play concurrently with the clip, the high-speed playback mode is not used.
    In case of the high-speed playback mode, when the selection clips are changed, or when the playback begins and it ends, the black picture or half updated view area might be displayed.
    The audio only can be heard during playing back.
  • Language:Japanese, English,Chinese(automatic recognition)


  • In full screen mode, you can not pause and move the frame foward or backward.
    When there are very many clips in the BIN area, the thumbnail might not be displayed.
    If the clip is made by Edit Copy Function on P2 products, the timecode display on the view area and timeline scale might not be updated properly, when the clip has discontinuous time code in the contents.
