HITACHI SHOOTS AHEAD OF THE COMPETITION.

While everybody else was busy walking about a solid state color video camera, Hitachi was buy inventing one.

Our VK-C1000 weighs less than 4 pounds, it’s compatible with VHS and Beta formats, and it’s more reliable than video cameras with tubes.

The picture quality is incredible. No sticking. No lag. None of those bothersome streaks of light you get when you pan with ordinary cameras.

Hitachi’s VK-C1000. It’s more than solid state. It’s solid state-of-the-art.
