A special Bang & Olufsen feature was 'spontaneous videotaping'. If you wanted to record the programme you were watching it was simply a matter of pressing 'record' twice on the remote control handset - and the VCR would automatically find the right channel and start taping.

You could with Beocord VX5500 play back in slow motion all the way down to still. You could use the picture-in-picture module with the VCR and the B&O TV on which you had it linked up to and it was also possible to keep your video tapes organised. By using a graphic 'notebook' you could name every video tape you record. Then you use the Beolink 5000 or Beolink 1000 terminal to simply order up the number of your recording.

Colours: black or black/white
