Title: Moving-image data recording/reproducing apparatus for simultaneously recording/reproducing a plurality of moving image data items using a plurality of recording/reproducing means

Abstract: A moving-image recording/reproducing apparatus for recording/reproducing a plurality of moving images by using a plurality of moving-image I/O passages includes: a plurality of moving-image recording/reproducing devices and a switch device for selectively establishing a connection between the plurality of moving-image I/O passages and the plurality of moving-image recording/reproducing devices. The apparatus further includes a control device for controlling the switching operation of the switch device, wherein the control device performs the recording/reproducing of the moving images input/output from each of the moving-image I/O passages by allocating the moving images to each of the moving-image recording/reproducing devices in accordance with an instructed sequential order, and controls the switching operation in such a manner that a plurality of the moving-image I/O passages are not allocated concurrently to the same moving-image recording/reproducing device.
