V-Log is a universal time code tool for use in all areas of tape logging. It contains all the functions necessaryfor effective time code management, including the reading, generation and insertion of LTC and VITC in bothPAL and NTSC. In addition to these essential capabilities, V-Log possesses the unique ability to controldomestic and industrial VHS machines, and the diagram below shows just why this is such a useful feature.
Many people prefer to log their rushes after the shoot, but you have to be absolutely sure that the machineyou use isn’t going to damage the source tapes. The alternative is to dub to VHS and use these tapes aslogging material. However, this can be a time-consuming and inaccurate business, since domestic VHSmachines have no RS-422 interface, and hence no transport control.
V-Log is designed to provide a simple and efficient way of controlling a VHS machine while you’re logging.Using Phoenix Log software, you can then create your own edit lists by simulating RS-422 control of a VHSmachine via the infrared control port. All VHS transport functions are available, including search-to-cue, andV-Log is able to control a wide range of VHS models.
Phoenix Log can export the results of your logging sessions to any current EDL format, thus reducing yourdigitising time and your costs, and a single V-Log/Phoenix combination allows you to replace a broadcastplayer with a VHS machine. V-Log is supplied complete with universal power supply and a full cable set forimmediate connection. How does it work? Just ask for a demonstration!
