Product Specifications

Enjoy your featured production on a VCR that enables you to see and hear the difference. JVC's Compact VHS VCR gives you the choice of excellent quality with a new compact, lightweight, sleek design. The picture stabilizer allows for increased viewing enjoyment so you can sit back and watch the show. Isn't it nice that you are now able to watch, listen and enjoy to your fullest potential? It features 4 component digital signal processing with Luminance Noise Reduction, Horizontal Aperture Circuitry, Vertical Aperture Circuitry, Variable g Circuitry and Animation and Timelapse. Animation lets you shoot video a frame at a time to make drawings and objects "move" on the tape, while Timelapse automatically records at set intervals so you can catch rare scenes, like a flower blooming, on tape (SP mode only via optional remote control).
