JVC Professional DVD-R And S-VHS/VHS Dual Deck, Model SRMV40US

The SR-MV40US is designed for use in educational institutions, video production studios, corporate and government installations. It simplifies the DVD recording process and allows archiving of existing S-VHS and VHS libraries to DVD with a single push of the button. Its built in IEEE-1394 connector provides an easy connection to popular editing systems from Apple®, Adobe®, and Avid®.

Unlike consumer models, an Automatic Finalize function simplifies and speeds up the DVD creation process. And, DVD's can be authored with the option of "full-repeat" (loop mode) for kiosk-type POS and museum applications.

  • One-Touch recording from tape to disc and automatic disc finalization for simplified operation
  • Professional MPEG2 encoding, time base correction, and 3D noise reduction for superior picture quality
  • Direct recording from DV and NLE sources via IEEE-1394
  • IEEE-1394 compatibility with major NLE platforms (Avid®, Adobe®, Apple®) (record only)
  • Dual tuners for simultaneous broadcast and cable recording to S-VHS/VHS and DVD-R
  • Mode lockout function to prevent tampering in public areas
  • RF output to simplify distribution and compatibility with existing televisions and display networks
  • A wide range of input and output connections (Composite I/O, YC I/O, Component out, IEEE-1394 in, etc.) for system compatibility, control and to maximize picture and sound quality.
  • Rugged commercial design with BNC video connector, 3-prong power cord.

The SR-MV40US is a commercial grade dual deck that offers pro features not found on consumer models!

The SR-MV40US is the convenient way to make a smooth transition from tape to DVD media. Especially suited for use in corporate, educational and religious organizations, this product will reduce the space taken up by tapes and let you easily create a long-lasting DVD library. What's more, it gives you a choice of three DVD recording media: DVD-RAM, DVD-RW, and DVD-R. If you're looking for a convenient dual deck DVD recorder, JVC's SR-MV40US is the intelligent choice.


DVD discs made on the SR-MV40US can be played back on virtually all DVD players provided that they have been "finalized." On typical consumer DVD recorders, this function is often hidden within a menu structure making the process difficult and increasing the possibility of delivering an "un-finalized" disc to a customer. The SR-MV40US offers a unique "auto-finalize" feature that creates a fully compatible disc when you finish recording. It's now easier than ever to hand your customer a finished product!

Auto full repeat discs can be made
Auto Repeat is very convenient when DVD discs are used in unattended displays such as wedding receptions, store kiosks, storefront demos or at trade shows. The SR-MV40US lets you create disks that will play (loop) repeatedly for this purpose.

Simultaneous recording of two TV channels
When there are two TV programs you wish to record on different channels being broadcast at the same time, the twin tuners found on the SR-MV40US will allow you to record these two separate channels onto DVD and videotape simultaneously.

RF Outputs
Especially useful for educational institutions, the SR-MV40US features RF output that enable you to easily connect TV sets in class room via only one RF cable.

Live Memory and Live Check functions
Ideal for school track and field events, Live Memory function lets you playback scenes to check any performance. With the DVD-RAM's rewriting capability, video can be recorded from a camcorder to the DVD-RAM, enabling simultaneous recording and playback. Viewing missed scenes will not interrupt the recording. The Live Check function displays real-time images in a sub-window.

Remote control code input terminal
The terminal for a remote control code input is located on the rear panel to enable remote control operation of this device by third party vendors in the future.

DVD and S-VHS/VHS playback
Commercially available DVDs and S-VHS/VHS tapes can be played back on the SR-MV40US.

Super MPEG Processors

  • Pre-processor (DVD)
    When recording from analog sources, effective noise reduction is applied before MPEG-2 encoding to guaran-tee superior quality images.
  • Post-processor (DVD)
    Several noise reduction features work together to clean up the image. Block noise reduction cuts "block noise" caused by MPEG-2 compression, Color DigiPure reduces 3D color noise, and Hadamard noise reduction eliminates "mosquito noise" from any DVD.

Last function memory
The SR-MV40US memorizes the last function in its memory and resumes operation from that point. Even if the power is turned off at the end of the day, mode settings remain valid and will be automatically recreated, making this feature especially handy for use kiosks and trade shows.

Mode lock
Another handy feature for unattended operation is the Mode Lock feature. Simply pressing on the remote control enter button for more than 5 seconds will disable all operation keys to prevent inadvertent operation.

Time counter display
The SR-MV40US displays time counter information, which is indispensable while editing or dubbing recordings, on both the DVD and S-VHS decks.

IEEE-1394 connection (DV input)
Signals from external DV sources and NLE systems can be recorded via the IEEE-1394 terminal. These signals are converted in real-time to an MPEG-2 signal for DVD and analog video signal for VHS. The SR-MV40US is compatible with all popular non linear editing systems including those from Apple®, Adobe®, and Avid®.
