XDCAM Essentials Video Series

Master the universe with the Sony XDCAM production system, by discovering how industry leaders are going tapeless, not masterless.

Just how good is Sony's XDCAM® production system? Ask a current owner. That's what we did, reaching out to leading broadcasters, major production companies, pro sports franchises and government agencies. They told us about file-based workflows. Robust equipment. Beautiful pictures. And they raved about rugged, reliable, affordable masters you can hold in your hand.

That's because Sony optical camcorders save your assets directly to a cartridge-encased disc. And XDCAM memory camcorders offer a clear path to an optical master. This advantage is even more powerful with the introduction of Sony's 12-disc optical data cartridges and drives. They write Terabytes of data at a time and protect you with 50-year archival life. Even with the passage of time, your masters will be looking as good as new. Sony's XDCAM system. It's the perfect master everyone seeks.
