Description: QWERTY keyboard-layout based remote control for titling and editing. Though too small to touch type on, and lacking even 1 key rollover, makes MD titling much quicker. Works only in conjunction with the modern MD decks: MJ-L1, DHC-MD99/ MD77/ MD5/ ??, CMT-M11C, MXD-D1, and MDS-S37/ JE500/ JE510/ JE700/ 503/ J3000/ JA30ES/ JA50ES. A picture of the layout is available.
Variants: RM-D20P was introduced in 9/1998 and appears nearly identical to the RM-D10P
Availability: Nic Boyde once carried this unit.
Compatibility with MDS-302/303/S30/S35: Trying the RM-D10P with the S30 (small-box version of the MDS-302), this is what happens: (1) MD function keys (play, pause, stop, etc.) work. (2) Edit zone keys (erase, divide, combine, move, etc.) do not work. (3) "Name" key works, but the alphanumeric labeling keys do not work. -Stuart Kiang
