HDCAM video tape recorder with CineAlta record feature and MPEG IMX and Digital Betacam playback
HDCAM uses intra-frame DCT compression using a compression ratio of about 7:1. There are four channels of 48kHz digital audio at 20-bit resolution.
The HDW-D2000/20 can record and replay at 1080/50i, 1080/59.94i, 1080/25P, 1080/29.97P, 1080/23.98P and 1080/24P.
Both 625/50 and 525/50 MPEG IMX and Digital Betacam cassettes can be replayed.
The HDW-D2000/20 has a built in HD to SD downconverter and a built-in SD to HD upconverter. Downconversion allows tapes shot in HDCAM to be output in standard definition for subsequent post production or distribution. The downconverted image can be squeezed or cropped within the VTR for display on a 4:3 monitor.
Assemble, insert and pre-read editing is provided. When used in pre-read mode, the HDW-D2000/20 can be used to insert titles into video material using a single VTR.
The HDW-D2000/20 has DT (Dynamic Tracking) heads as standard. Broadcast quality pictures can be replayed in the range -1 to x2 speed from HDCAM tapes, and from -1 to x3 speed when replaying MPEG IMX and Digital Betacam cassettes.
Selecting edit points is easy with the HDW-D2000/20. Pictures and sound can be searched at up to x50 normal speed.
The HDW-D2000/20 uses a 4U chassis design, in common with MPEG IMX VTRs and the new DVW-M2000P series Digital Betacam VTRs.
Both Dolby-E and AC-3 are handled as standard.
