Get an external 500GB hard drive with purchase of Sony XDCAM®
studio deck via mail-in rebate.

Here's a deal to remember. Purchase the PMW-1000 XDCAM HD422 SxS® Memory Recorder/Player deck between October 1, 2013, and December 31, 2013, and receive by mail Sony's new portable 500GB hard drive ($179 value) at no additional cost.


The PMW-1000 HD422 recorder/player deck provides a wide range of AV and IT interfaces including HD-SDI, SD-SDI, HDMI®, and composite outputs. This half rack deck is able to play and record baseband video and provides legacy playback of FAT formatted SxS cards with .MP4 and DV-AVI video files created by XDCAM EX camcorders. The RS-422 interface and Gigabit Ethernet enables the PMW-1000 to be used as a player deck for linear editing and a feeder deck for non-linear editing.

Equipped with a USB 3.0 interface, the PMW-1000 can easily connect to an external hard drive like the PSZHA50, enabling users to offload content directly to the USB HDD without a PC or other devices. This capability helps reduce storage costs and increase efficiency during studio or field operation.

With its shoot-and-ship capability, Sony's new PSZHA50 portable hard drive is the ideal way to transport content after a shoot or edit. Its reinforced protective case provides one of the safest, fastest, most convenient ways to transfer important audio, video, photo, and data.
