Subtitled "Hi-Quality Picture & Digital Sound", this disc is credited for manufacture and publication to "LaserVision Association Pacific" and made in Japan. It has no dialogue, only a music track, but song lyrics and the few on-screen titles are in Japanese.

Actual programme title apears to be "Jikan wa, LaserVision". Music is by Shigeaki Saegusa. There are 2 picture stop codes in chapter 8, at frames 47146 and 47251.

Chapter 9 contains test patterns as follows:

  • Dog head test chart, frames 47441-47590
  • Colour bar, frames 47591-47740
  • Grey scale, frames 47741-47890
  • White grid on black, frames 47891-48040

Music by Shigeaki Saegusa. Two sided inner sheet listing the contents of the disc, one side in English and the other in Japanese. It definitely looks like Beta SP.

Insert explains how each segment of the disc should appear on a television: example 'Frame 7021, Lighthouse, The vertical lines should be reproduced without distortion', and 'Frame 11271, Cactus, each thorn should appear naturally sharp'. Only eight chapters are listed on tbe back of the sleeve. Looks to me like the video on this disc is shot on Betacam SP.

I've uploaded copies of the instruction sheet that I have scanned in. Here is the English side and the Japanese side.
