  • Peak Performance VCR note

    To all interested BIOMCH-L parties:

    During the past months there have been several messages from Peak users
    regarding the Panasonic AG-7300 series VCRs. The subject of these messages is
    centered around how worn parts in the VCR's tape transport system affect the
    Peak software. The tape transport is the mechanical device that threads the
    videotape into the VCR and across the video drum head. After prolonged use,
    many parts of the tape transport system will begin to wear. Specifically, tape
    rollers, guides and capstans. These parts must be replaced when they become
    worn or tape stretch, tape edge curl as well as other malfunctions may occur.
    The Peak software makes use of the Panasonic AG-7300 series VCR's editing
    features to position the video tape. The VCR is designed for this type of use
    and is well within the performance specifications of the deck.

    We have been working with Panasonic engineers to compile a set of VCR
    maintenance and care guidelines that will help users better understand how Peak
    uses the VCR, and, more specifically, information on how to keep the VCR in top
    working order and what to tell service technicians when having the VCR serviced.
    If anyone would like to have a copy of this guide they can contact Peak directly
    and we would be happy to send it to them.
