CONTROLS ON VIDEO CASSETTE RECORDERS

VCPs (video cassette players) lack a recording capability—they only playback tapes and lack the means to record. This means VCPs dispense with a lot of extraneous electronics, as well as the programmable record timer. As a result VCPs are a little less expensive than full-fledged recording VCRs. However they requirethe same level of mechanical maintenance as full-fledged recording VCRs. The controls on a typical VCP are depicted in Fig. 33.35.
