Features Benefits:
HDCAM format HDCAM format: high picture quality, long record time of up to 124 minutes, compatible camcorders available.
Built in Down Conversion Built-in down-conversion: 1080i HD recordings can be simultaneously output in Standard Definition; HD material can be used in today's standard definition environments; SD output allows selection from squeeze, letterbox, and edge crop modes.
Metadata Handling Metadata handling: Ancillary date can be recorded in a dedicated portion of the vertical interval; this "metadata" can be used for user-defined data. Can also record UMID (Unique Material Identifier Data) as part of the Metadata stream.
Pre-Read Editing Pre-read Editing: Allows applications such as titling with a single VTR or A/B roll with just two VTRs.
Telefile System Tele-File System: This VTR is equipped with Sony's Tele-File system allowing the VTR to read the data directly from a Tele-File label attached to the video cassette; the labels allow easy cataloging of information about the video, including shot marks, scene numbers, and script information.
