BeoCord V3000 VHS VCR

Large photo

Manufactured: 1992 - 1994

Beocord V3000 was designed to match Beovision LS5500 in looks and budget in order to allow video programming directly on-screen. It permitted eight programmes to be recorded up to one year in advance and had a superb quality slow motion and freeze facility. It also had twin speed recording and playback.

With the assistance of the Beolink 1000 remote control terminal you could handle complicated programming of the video recorder in the easiest possible way - direct via a menu on the TV screen. Beocord V3000 also had Bang & Olufsen's uniquely fast access to taping any programme you were watching at that moment.

Press RECORD twice on the Beolink 1000 terminal and the VCR would automatically find the right channel in its memory and commence recording your TV programme. It was a fast mover too, having two winding speeds in both directions for picture search. Four video heads ensured that you obtained still pictures and slow motion in choice quality. Sound quality was in mono.
