HD/SD-SDI output allows duplication to a deck with HD/SD-SDI input, for example an XDCAM or HDCAM deck.
Multi-format Playback/Recording Capability
The HVR-M35E supports HDV native progressive recording modes and has a 60i/50i switchable function, so it can playback/record:
The HDV720p(24/25/30p) tape playback is available for a simple viewing.
* No i.LINK output for HDV720p
Dual-size Cassette Mechanism
The HVR-M35E accepts both standard and mini size HDV, DVCAM, and DV cassettes without using any special adaptor. Standard size cassettes allow recording times of up 276 minutes and can also used by most DVCAM/HDV shoulder-mount camcorders including the new HVR-S270E. Sony DigitalMaster™ is the highest specification and most reliable tape for HDV, DVCAM and DV usage.
Four Channel Audio Data Playback
The HVR-M35E can play back the four-channel audio data in HDV1080i format recorded by the HVR-S270E. It can also play back the four-channel audio data in DVCAM format. The four-channel audio data is embedded in the i.LINK and HD/SD-SDI output, or is output through the AES/EBU audio connectors.
The HVR-M35E can convert material from HD down to SD, and output the SD video signal through its i.LINK, SD-SDI, analogue component, S-video, and composite connectors. This allows users to edit recorded material with a compatible nonlinear editing system using current DV editing software, as well as record SD signals to an external VTR.When down-converting these signals, the aspect ratio displayed can be converted from 16:9 to 4:3. Display modes can be selected from Squeeze, Letterbox, and Edge Crop. Letterbox output is not available from the i.LINK connector. For HDV recording with four channels audio data, the audio data in the down-converted DV signal is selectable from either 1/2ch or 3/4ch.
The HVR-M5E is compatible with both 50 and 60 Hz use - providing greater user flexibility to make and edit productions on a worldwide basis.
HDV/DV IN TC
The HVR-M35E is equipped with HDV/DV IN TC, enabling time code synchronization with external equipment - ideal when dubbing tapes or recording to tapes with material edited by nonlinear editing systems.
2.7-inch LCD Monitor
A 2.7" wide LCD panel with monaural speaker enables operators to check 16:9 aspect pictures images, audio level meter and set-up menu."Clear Photo LCD plus" technology further improves the visibility of previous LCDs, offering more detailed and colourful reproduction of objects in dark or bright places.
The DUPLICATE PLUS function makes it easy to copy video and audio from a VTR or camcorder onto the HVR-M35E – along with the original time code. Operators simply connect the two i.LINK devices together via their i.LINK interfaces and press the DUPLICATE PLUS and PLAY buttons on the front panel of the HVR-M35E. Copying will then begin.
Edge Crop Adjust
The HVR-M35E is able to adjust the edge crop position when down converting from HD (16:9 aspect ratio) to SD (4:3 aspect ratio). By displaying the edge crop marker on the monitor, you can check the crop position on the LCD monitor before down converting.
The HVR-M35E has an Auto Repeat function that enables it to repeatedly play back a program. In addition, the HVR-M35E has a Custom Repeat function that allows operators to set a repeat number of times, a repeat interval, and a start time of repeat.
Time code settings
The time code can be preset using any number in H/M/S/F (hours/minutes/seconds/frames), for accurate tape-position information.
Other than the default functions, frequently used functions can be assigned for convenient and customized operation.
