Guys if I had a car I would have picked this one in France myself.
:shock:
But since I don't maybe someone else will add this one to his/her collection.

From the laserdiscarchive site.....


Pioneer in the U.S. has begun selling the VDR-V1000 "LaserRecorder", a two piece rewritable laserdisc recorder/player. The device functions in CAV in analogue NTSC format with digital audio but offers slightly extended playing time over the current NTSC laserdisc standard. The VDR-V1000 can record and play 57,600 frames or 32 minutes of video from a disc side. The discs are protected in caddies, as is normal for recordable systems.
The product is being targeted at the professional market as an editing or programme making tool. The discs have a claimed erase/record potential of 1,000,000 cycles and the audio can be encoded both separately from the video or simultaneously. Pioneer claims the product is the first device to let producers perform real-time, non-linear editing with absolute accuracy.

Pioneer has also launched a PAL version of its re­writable laserdisc recorder/player aimed at the programme editing market. Editing on laserdisc has been popular for several years, the rapid access of the disc being an ideal way of rehearsing different mixes of scenes that, once finalised, can be imitated when editing the actual videotape, or in the case of movie systems like EditDroid, the film.

The VDR-V1000 makes use of two lasers making it possible to instantly write to any part of the disc. While one laser is reading the other is searching so there need never be a blank screen. The VDR-V1000 sells for around £25,000 and the blank discs for £800.


Someone may end up with a very interesting machine, if bagged by an lddb user please let us know how it all goes.

Cheers.

I was eyeballing that one but shipping would be a killer - even within Europe :evil:

one or two members here had maintained a VDR-V1000 collection, and at least one of them had eventually offloaded theirs a few years back.

IIRC, one of them had gotten theirs from NASA or something, and it had been complete with instruction binder and four or so discs.

bear in mind that neither the recorder, nor it's caddy-encased glass "LD-RW" are in any way compatible with standard LDs or players...

Same problem here. If it wasn't for the weight I would have been all over it.

@tasuke

I am aware that it isn't compatible with commercial LD players.
