Industrial Laserdisc Player

The CLD-V2600 is the latest innovative LaserDisc player from Pioneer. It is designed especially for use in demanding professional fields where videobased instruction and communications are rapidly growing. 

Offering functional versatility, easy operation, and long-term durability, the CLD-V2600 plays laserdiscs, audio CDs, and CDV discs. It can be operated by remote control, barcode, or computer -- or with the extensive controls right on the front panel. To meet the needs of applications in areas as diverse as education, training, merchandising, and public access information, this popularly priced model is packed with a host of new features such as a 2-speed shuttle dial control, an S-video terminal, a front panel display, and a headphone jack with volume control.

RS-232C Interface for Computer Control

The RS-232C Interface allows the CLD-V2600 to be connected to virtually any computer, including IBM, Macintosh, Apple II, or Amiga brands. In addition, the CLD-V2600 responds to the same standard command protocol as that used for Pioneer LaserDisc player models CLD-V2400, LD-V2200, and LD-V4400, so programs developed for these models can be used with little or no modification. This protocol for Pioneer players is sup-ported by dozens of multimedia authoring systems.

The CLD-V2600 LaserBarcode system conforms fully with the latest industry standards, and provides an easy way of remotely operating the LaserDisc player. Use an optional LaserBarcode reader to scan any barcode, and the CLD-V2600 will execute the playback commands encoded in that barcode. In the classroom, courtroom, or boardroom, anyone can make use of the barcoders incorporated into thousands of instructional and presentation support materials. In addition, barcode creation computer software, such as Bar'n'Coder, enables you to generate your own barcodes in order to integrate existing resource materials with videodisc-based presentations.

CD Audio Playback

Capable of Playing Five Kinds of Discs

In addition to playing both 12" and 8" laserdiscs, the CLD-V2600 is capable of playing standard 5" CD audio discs and 3" CD singles. It will also play 5" CDV format discs.

This laser disc player was not used in any laser disc games from the factory.  Using the Laser Ace Conversion Card, this player can be used in many other laser disc games, but performance is slightly slower than other models.  For more information on which games it will work with, see the Laser Ace home page.
