HDCAM compact player with multiple interfaces, including i.Link and HD-SDI
The J-H3 has an HDSDI output as well as analogue Y Pb Pr connectors. The built in downconverter supplies SDI and composite outputs, while the XGA computer output feeds a standard PC monitor. The downconverted signal is also provided as as i-Link (IEEE 1394) interface for a DV feed with audio, timecode and remote control of the J-H3
(Requires optional HKJ-101 i.Link interface board). DV based off-line editing has become an industry norm. In order to bridge the gap between HDCAM tapes and DV, the J-H3 can be equipped with an i.Link connector by installing the HKJ-101 i.Link interface board.
DV video (525/625 depending on SDTV output), audio (2ch or 4ch), timecode, and machine control can be communicated between the J-H3 and a non-linear editor via a single IEEE1394 connection.
Note that machine control is effective for material capturing purposes only, and frame accurate editing is not supported. Tape-to-tape editing between an external VTR is not supported. Crash-recording via i.Link is possible.
The J-H3 has an XGA computer output (regular mini 15 pin D-type), so you can display RGB pictures at 1024 x 577 pixels (that is, letterboxed from the native 1024 x 768) on virtually any computer screen or projector. Timecode and safe area markers can be superimposed.
The J-H3 supports 24P, 25P (50i) and 29.97P (59.94i) frequencies. Original 24P tapes can also be played back at 25P with time code conversion and sound (pitch is 4% higher). Both the original 24P and the converted 25P timecode can be superimposed on the outputs. In addition there is a 23.98 PsF playback mode that has a 3:2 pulldown engine to provide 59.94i output (in 1080 and 525)
In addition to analogue and digital interfaces, the J-H3 also adds features necessary for frame accurate downloading. Included are a reference input (HD and SD), LTC time code output and an RS-422 connector for locking to an external recorder or non linear editor for straight playout applications.
