Pioneer LD- V4300D
specifically for the interactive video and multimedia markets, Pioneer's new
LD-V4300D laserdisc player brings the heavy-duty PAL/NTSC product to a new low

Pioneer's new machine lists for £995-00 + VAT.
LD-V4300D is Pioneer's

signal-to-noise ratios respective≠ly. Digital audio performance is specified as
a 2OHz-20KHz frequency response (+1dB) with a S/N figure of 102db. Analogue
audio has the same response qualified by a 12dB tolerance and a signal-to-noise
times for the player are good with a nominal 1 second search time for any frame
on a CAV disc. An 'almost instantí jump up to 50 frames either side of the one
in play is also claimed. CLV access is given as a maximum of 6 seconds.
external synch lock to allow the player to be synchronised with other video

adaptor (the DA-V1000). A front socket can be connected to a bar code reader
(for use with certain interactive/training type programmes, which use the
