Use this method to manually enable edit control. Edit control is defined as the precise enabling of individual, or a set of, record tracks on a VCR; for example, a video-only insert edit, where only the video record head is enabled and a new video signal is recorded—the audio signal is left as is. Use this method to control "on the fly" editing on machines that have this feature.

DV Implementation
