An ideal bridge to integrate the benefits of hard-disk based operation for DVCAM users.
Professional Video Production is now seeking more lower-cost equipment that will bring increases in production efficiency and reductions in running cost, due to the diversification in service and programme contents in alignment with the advent of the DTV era.
Sony introduce the DSR-DR1000AP which is the first simple DVCAM hard-disk recorder in the low-cost range. It takes full advantage of benefits of disk-based recording while maintaining the same operational feel as a VTR.
It enables quick and easy handling of recording contents through random access and offers simultaneous recording and playback facilities, allowing the recording to be available immediately for playout and other feeding purposes without interruption. It also offers DMC (-2.0 to +2.0) and network capability for file transfer.
Offering a new level of operational convenience and enhanced creative opportunities, the DSR-DR1000AP provides lots of possible applications such as sports reply, playout of 'spots' (commercial insertion), feed editing at broadcast stations, simple back-up disk server and material transfer through network.
Compact, simple & low-cost
The half-rack size DSR-DR1000AP delivers full benefits of disk-based recording in the low-cost range, such as random access and simultaneous recording & playback, with simple operational feel like a VTR.
12-hour DVCAM recording with loop recording capability
Equipped with a 160 GB internal hard disk drive, the DSR-DR1000AP can store up to 12 hours of DVCAM stream video and four channels of audio. The unit also features loop recording, providing an ideal solution for news, medical or security applications, astronomical surveillance and so on.
Affordable package for slow-motion reply
Used with RM-280 external remote controller, the DSR-DR1000AP is an ideal affordable solution for slow-motion replay application such as sports live. It provides instant replay with a couple of variable speeds in a very simple operation on the control panel of RM-280.
Easy handling of recording contents with high quality
The DSR-DR1000AP enables easy handling of recording contents such as clip segment playback for playout of designated video segments, offering simple VTR-like operation with a jog/shuttle dial. The machine also offers the convenience of high-quality digital jog sound, and smooth slow-motion playback over a wide speed range, +/- 200%.
Simultaneous recording & playback
The DSR-DR1000AP can simultaneously record and playback, allowing a recording to be available immediately for sports reply, playout and other feeding purposes without interruption.
File transfer capability through i.LINK & network
The DSR-DR1000AP supports up to 4x real time file transfer via i.LINK SBP2 protocol into a compatible non-linear editor. It also includes Ethernet connectivity (100Base-T) allowing it to be connected to a LAN or WAN environment. This allows the transfer of DVCAM/DV files across a network between two locations.
With its wide complement of digital and analogue interfaces, the DSR-DR1000AP is equally at home configured for today's production requirements. The unit has i.LINK, SDI, AES/EBU audio and Ethernet connectivity as well as analogue interfaces such as component, composite, S-Video, analogue audio and Time code I/O.
