Features

Overview: The JX-S555 lets you switch among up to five A/V sources, with outputs to an A/V receiver, video monitor, or other video display or recording device. In addition to composite video and analog audio, the JX-S555 has provisions for optical digital audio, S-video, and component video connections. It is possible to dub from any of the five inputs to either of the two outputs (three audio).

Composite Video to S-Video Conversion: Y/C separator circuits convert incoming composite video signals to S-video signals, so signals from composite video sources are passed to the S-video and composite video outputs. This feature is convenient for dubbing from a composite video source to an S-video recorder, and, if your TV or monitor has an S-video input, signals from S-video and composite video sources can be passed to your TV or monitor using a single cable. 

S-Video to Composite Video Conversion: While incoming S-video signals are sent to the S-video outputs, they are also converted to composite video signals and sent to the composite video outputs. This feature allows signals from S-video sources to be sent to devices with composite video inputs, so it's convenient for dubbing from an S-video source to a recorder equipped only with composite video inputs. 

Loop Protect: This feature prevents the signal from outputting to the source component.

Dubbing Lock: Dubbing Lock prevents accidental operational mistakes while dubbing as well as a monitor select function for watching a video program while recording another.

  • Power
