Unfortunately, the unit lacks some essential editing features, taking the HR-DVS1U out of the running as a serious linear editing system. A picture is worth? The S-VHS video quality of this deck is beautiful, and digital is, well, digital.

The advanced tape transports are robust, and control function response from the remote works well. The remote configuration is logical and easy to decipher with clearly divided task areas. All functions are accessed by remote and on screen menus.

Those added to the hardware are standard tape transports, dub direction, tape dubbing, insert edit, audio dub, deck selection and eject. You are required to go through menus to select and configure input preferences.

Indubitably The dubbing features are easy to use. Just hold down the Dub button for two seconds to activate the dub function, and let the machine do the rest. In Normal Dubbing mode, our edits were clean and accurate. The only drawback of this dub function is that the playback deck keeps rolling after the record deck is commanded to end the dub.

After the record deck stops, you have to select the playback deck before it will receive any commands from the remote. Monitoring must be done through the analog audio outputs.

Additionally, the unit lacks a mike input. These omissions make us think that although JVC added the audio dub feature they do not really expect it to be used to any extent. We were disappointed to find that only one of the decks can be recorded to at a time, so you cant record simultaneously from an outside source. This is an automated editing feature based on an edit decision list EDL , served on eight program pallets with eight events per pallet for a total of 64 edits.

We found that the transition effects use a freeze frame at the end of the first clip. To perform a random assemble edit, you put the S-VHS deck in record pause at the in point. Bring up the random assemble edit program list. Enter the opening transition effect i. Next, add the transition effect that will take you into the next shot. This feature is very accurate, usable and addicting.

The EDL and batch editing are nothing new, but it is great to see these functions available at this level. Happy Couple? At this price we would have liked to have seen audio metering and monitoring, a mike input and user definable preroll for audio inserts. Although we take exception with some of the omissions in the hardware layout of the HR-DVS1U, we do feel this integrated deck will find a happy home with many Mini DV videographers.

The editing features alone will foster creativity. The transports seem hardy and we feel they will withstand the rigors of editing for years. JVC is definitely on the right track with the HR-DVS1U and with a glance at the professional edit decks in their roster they could make this family of integrated format decks untouchable.
