Reflecting market demands, employing higher standards of technology and using the experiences of the DSR-2000P, we will innovate the DSR-80P by introducing new line-ups, DSR-1800P. With all these excellence and innovations available, the DSR-1800P will be a major workforce in video production fields by satisfying those highly professionals.
The DSR-1800P provides excellent performance in an editing environment. It has a full range of analogue and digital interfaces, a responsive search dial function and many other powerful features. A key advantage is playback compatibility with DV, DVCAM and DVCPRO (25 Mb/s).
This product comes with the full PrimeSupport package. That’s fast, hassle-free repairs, a helpline offering expert technical advice, and a free loan unit while yours is repaired. Plus the peace of mind that Sony is looking after your equipment – and your business.
The DSR-1800P automatically detects DV, DVCAM and DVCPRO tape formats.
The DV formats include not only DVCAM and DV but also the DVCPRO format. Three cassette sizes utilised for these formats. All these tapes can be played back in the DSR-1800P without any special mechanical adapter.
The editing functions such as digital slow motion, jog audio and DMC are all available for all DV tape formats. Superb jog audio lets you easily handle all the DV tape formats as direct editing sources. This means that, even when using DV or DVCPRO recorded tapes as editing sources, there is no need to dub to other, higher, formats.
Pictures recorded in a 16:9 aspect ratio include a wide aspect ID located in the VITC. The DSR-1800P can record or erase this ID. For example, if you don’t want this ID signal to appear on a TV display, this ID can be erased. If the video signal passes through an editing or effects system this ID signal is often removed. The DSR-1800P can re-record it.
Due to a newly developed filter colour blurring during baseband dubbing (e.g. SDI or analogue component) has been significantly reduced.
Until now frame delays in all DV VTRs have made audio dubbing very difficult. However, due to newly developed digital processing and pre-read technology the DSR-1800P has achieved the perfect synchronisation of video and audio.
The DSR-1800P incorporates an internal signal generator. This generates either colour bars (100% or 75%) or black /burst signals for video and a 1 kHz tone or silence for audio. This function is convenient for recording a pre-striped tape prior to editing.
The DSR-1800P incorporates a built-in Jog/Shuttle dial on its front panel. This enables highly responsive operation, especially when searching for editing points.
For ensuring reliable editing conditions, the DSR-1800P is equipped with a channel condition monitoring function. Three levels of error rate are indicated with a tri-colour (G/Y/R) indicator. This is effective for all DV formats (25Mbps).
