screen.(see “Menu operation procedures” on page 22)
2. Set the length of pre-recording.
Options: OFF (default), 1sec, 2sec, 3sec, 4sec, 5sec
3. Confirm the setting and return to the Menu Screen.
If the amount of time in recording standby is less than the set
time, that amount of time is recorded instead.
Using the synchronized recording
When the synchronized recording function is on, recording will
start automatically when a signal is input that exceeds the sync
LEVEL set in advance. After starting recording, recording will
automatically pause if the signal stays below the sync level for
the set STOP TIME.

Sync recording operation overview
When the sync recording function is on and the unit is in recording
standby, recording will start and stop automatically in response to
input source levels.
0When a signal higher than the sync level is input, recording
will start automatically. However, if a signal lower than the
sync level does not continue for at least one second after the
unit is put into recording standby, recording will not start
automatically even though input is detected.
In the above example, DELAY is set to 0msec (default). By
changing the DELAY item, you can change the point when
0During recording, when the signal stays below the sync level
for the amount of time set with the STOP TIME item, record-
ing will automatically pause.
Recording standby state
If STOP TIME is set to INF, recording will not pause automati-
cally even if the signal stays below the sync level.
0To disable sync recording, set the SYNC REC screen MODE item
