The Pioneer Videodisc Player Now Allows You To Enjoy Audio and Video High Fidelity In The Comfort of Your Home.
You've probably already heard Pioneer high fidelity audio components. Now you can see it as well as hear it with Pioneer's VP-1000 laser-optical videodisc player. The system uses a laser beam to detect the signal record on the videodisc. There is no physical contact between the pickup and the disc itself so, unlike an ordinary phonograph record, there is no abrasion and no wear on the disc or the pickup. Even fingerprints or dust on the videodisc surface will not interfere with the reproduction of a quality picture or audio because the laserbeam is focused 1.1mm under the disc surface.
High Fidelity Stereo
Both standard (CAV) and extended play (CLV) videodiscs can be played on teh VP-1000 which automatically detects these videodiscs and plays them accordingly. The standard play disc provides a maximum of 20 minutes playing time per side and also allows you to utilize the freeze-frame and slo motin features of your Pioneer videodisc player. The CLV disc ovvers a maximum playing time of one hour per side.
Random Frame Access
Easy to Use
"The Pioneer VP-1000 laser-optical player incorporates a wide range of features most requested by consumers during Pioneer's national experience with technology demonstration," said Ken Kai. "They include freeze frame, scanning, the ability to call up by frame number any given frame on the disc (random access) and slow motion. These permit the Pioneer player to be used to meet a wide range of educational and information needs of consumers."
