S-VHS Hi-Fi Editing Recorder/Player, SP, YC, TBC, DNR, RS-422

Model Details

The AG-DS555 is a sleek editing VCR and player offering high-grade editing functions and smooth, easy operation. It features built-in digital TBC (time base correction), 4-channel audio and an IQ (Intelligent Quest) mechanism for the precise, reliable operation professionals demand.


  • Built-in digital TBC eliminates even small amounts of jitter, skew, head impact error, and color blurring
  • Digital Noise Reduction (DNR) processes Y and C signals separately to boost S/N ratio, thereby minimizing noise during playback
  • Digital logical comb filter uses an advanced 2-D system for complete Y/C separation, resulting in reduced color and luminance blurring
  • Switching noise masking effectively eliminates noise from head switching
  • 4 audio channels (2 stereo Hi-Fi, 2 linear with Dolby Noise Reduction)
  • Super-VHS and amorphous video heads with higher magnetic coercivity than conventional ferrite heads
  • IQ (Intelligent Quest) mechanism delivers precise, high-speed operation and reliability
  • Dual-loading system achieves high-speed response while protecting tapes and heads from damage
  • 32X high-speed search
  • Jog/shuttle dial helps you find exact edit points with the touch of a dial
  • 16:9 wide aspect compatibility
  • Built-in time code generator/reader
