Streamlining Your Workflow with unique Hybrid Recording Solutions from Sony
Speed, reliability, operability, and versatility are key concerns in any video production.
The HVR-MRC1K Memory Recording Unit from Sony offers stunning innovations for all aspects of the production process - from acquisition to editing, and on to material archiving.
The HVR-MRC1K consists of the HVR-MRC1 main unit, HVRA-CR1 cradle, cold-shoe adaptor and an i.LINK cable. Extremely compact and lightweight, the HVR-MRC1K can be mounted on a HDV™/DVCAM™ camcorder, thereby?converting it to a 'hybrid' recording system with CompactFlash® solid-state memory and tape. It allows the user to record video on a tape and CompactFlash (CF) card simultaneously.
The widely available CF card can be used to offer secure recording, removable media convenience, high durability against external vibration, and high-speed file transfer to a computer. It is possible to record for about 72 minutes on a 16-GB CF card
Simultaneous HD and SD recording allows the recording of HD material to tape and SD to CompactFlash media. Giving the flexibility to shoot for today's SD production and HD value in the future
The HVR-MRC1K allows the use of tape and/or non-linear recording media, giving you the ability to produce a reliable backup recording. HDV or DVCAM tape-based users can therefore move gradually to IT workflow with this hybrid-operation.
Files for quick editing and tape for archiving - this means you can immediately access a movie file for streamlined NLE work, while keeping the master source tape in a safe place.
