Panasonic NV-5110 EIAJ-2 Video Cartridge Player
This is an EIAJ-2 format, 1/2 inch Color Cartridge Video Tape Player. Shown, on the left, with two tapes and an EIAJ 8 pin video monitor cable. The signal recording format is identical to EIAJ-1, it's only the cartridge that makes this one different. Running time is only 30 minutes and the tape must be entirely rewound before it can be removed from the deck. This makes viewing multiple tapes time consuming if you take into account the time it takes to rewind each tape. Because the NV-5110 contains a complex threading system and a captive take up reel, tape jams are extremely difficult to clear. The picture, on the right, gives a clue to the complexity of this type of system.
