To Coast Guide New York's Palladium with its 25- monitor video banks. 54 Video July 1987

he cool fire has arrived at the hot nightspots. Television screens, once used in bars only to beam out Friday night fights or Sunday after- noon ball games, are now the prime sourc- es of entertainment in some of the coun- try’s hippest dance clubs and late night music venues. In fact, any club without video these days seems strangely quiet and a little bit dull. Drinking in high tech surroundings, gazing at your amour with one eye, and checking out the flickering images overhead with the other—that’s entertainment in the ’80s. We asked veteran clubgoers and top VJs—“video jockeys,” the people who cre- ate, edit, and program videos in clubs— across the country for their favorite haunts. The following are the top ten video bar recommendations from coast-to-coast (and a few miles beyond). Since opening two years ago, this vast gathering trough for Manhattan’s celeb elite has become known as the granddaddy of video clubs. With its dramatic, spectacu- larly lit interior architecture—imagine the Emerald City built around a gymnasium on the planet Dune—and the 25-monitor video banks roaming freely above the crowd, it’s a mecca for the visually over- stimulated art and show biz bunch. Head VJ Tima Surmelioglu blends tapes by neo-ex- pressionists such as Eric Fischl and David Salle with ambient images and found foot- age from public domain sources. Because the DJs and VJs work at separate controls, the music and the video images don’t al- ways relate, but Tima and her crew try to match the rhythm of the visuals to the tunes. Getting inside the club to see the video set-up is the hard part: One out of every three would-be patrons is turned away by the attitude-heavy doormen. Wherever you gaze inside this pristine, white-walled temple to television, you see screens—34 constantly active monitors line the entrance hall, stack up beside the small stage, and sit in huge blocks near the July 1987 Video 55

The pictures split, combine, swirl in and out, and overlap to the exact beat of the music. The guys in the booth know exactly where to find every tape in their continually updated, computer-inventoried library. { There’s nothing extraordinarily creative about this popular Georgetown hangout, but a selection of the latest rock videos attracts tube-hungry college crowds. The music leans toward progressive with some go-go and rap mixed in on weekends. Two 8-by-10 foot projection screens beam onto 56 Video July 1987

(Lumet almost instantly abandons the possibility that she might have done it.) Ten minutes into the film, the only mys- tery remaining is whether Fonda’s coif- fure is a wig or just a dye job. The charac- ters uncover nary a clue, and when the denouement finally comes, the twist that gives the killer a motive feels unearned. Most of Lumet’s best work (12 Angry Men, Dog Day Afternoon, The Verdict) eschews personal statement, but he’s usually good for a creditable formal work- out.

This VCR is very easy to use. 88 Video July 1987 Performance. The VC-799U delivers 240 lines of horizontal resolution with a very good video signal-to-noise ratio of 44,2 dB unweighted and 47.4 dB weighted. Chroma AM S/N is 47.6 dB and chroma PM S/N is 46.7 dB, both outstanding. The noise-free special effects work well. The overall picture quality rating is very good. The deck offers only linear-track stereo recording and playback, so -3 dB frequency response is limited to between 125 Hertz and 10 kiloHertz, with the rated frequency response within -5 dB. At LP high end response drops to 8 kHz and at EP -3 dB range is 160 Hz to 5 kHz. Audio S/N is 44 dB, 4 dB above Sharp’s rating, and the total harmonic distortion is 1.8 percent, for an audio rating of good by linear track stan- dards. Conclusion. With ratings of very good for picture quality, good for audio and ex- cellent for ease of operation, we rate over- all performance as very good. You can get better performance with digital special ef- fects and hi-fi audio, but at a higher price. If you’re shopping on a budget you may be willing to make these compromises. If so, this $750 VCR is well worth considering. p>

Videotests TOSHIBA Toshiba Toshiba’s CX3077 delivers a big, bright picture at a price: $2,500. Monitor/Receiver ‘4 KawKeaKKKhKKK The arrival of DEDAo ALL-AMERICAN Toshiba’s 30-inch CX3077 monitor caused a lot of ex- citement at our of- fices. We were all impressed with its size, brightness and high picture quality but not so thrilled with the sound of its internal speakers. It is also moderately flexible with two video and two RF inputs. One of the jacks loops through, making it easier to select cable channels with the remote. Automatic balanced color (ABC) and a vertical comb filter save some work in making picture adjustments, but we wish the remote had a few more controls for picture and audio features. Description. The 136.7-pound CX3077 measures 28 inches high by 29-1/8 wide by 17 deep, with a 4-1/2 inch projec- tion around the neck of the picture tube.

There are RCA-type pin jacks for stereo audio line in, two stereo audio/video in- puts, and two stereo A/V source outputs. The source outputs can loop into the source inputs. Two sets of A/V output jacks deliver the processed input to a VCR or monitor. Inverse output jacks deliver whichever signal is not being processed. Operation.

Videotests Conclusion. The Sony XV-C700 Video Multi Color Corrector is an ideal fix- the-picture box with features not found on other consumer processors. It also offers some basic wipes and fades and fairly flexi- ble audio mixing. Its suggested price of $700 is a little higher than some competi- tive products, but when it comes to cor- recting flaws in irreplaceable footage it may well be your only option. We recommend it highly. VW] DON’T BE A DROPOUT!
