Chapter 9. Delivery of Master Recordings > Recording a Mix on a VTR

Recording a Mix on a VTR

Even though many video layback operations are performed in a video post-production facility, it is preferable to lay back the audio yourself if you have access to a compatible video tape deck. Sony Digital Betacam is the current industry standard, though analog Betacam SP is still widely used. Laying back audio to videotape decks requires SMPTE synchronization and compatible audio connections.

Synchronization can be as simple as feeding analog SMPTE into your SMPTE to MTC converter and allowing Pro Tools to lock to that incoming time code. The Machine Control option can provide another level of functionality by allowing you to remotely control the videotape deck. Either way, Pro Tools and the videotape deck must be in perfect sync when laying back final mixes. This requires hardware that will resolve the speed of Pro Tools to the VTR. Refer to Chapters 3 and 4 for more detailed information on synchronization.
