An infrared wireless remote control unit was also optionally available. This was the difference making it the V-8700 model.

It took the form of a bolt on unit mounted to the right hand side of the VCR and plugged into the front remote connector. The remote was effective up to around 7m to 10m and weighed 85grams.
