The HVR-1500A Digital HD Videocassette Recorder is the successor to the HVR-1500. In addition to its robust functionality, HD-SDI input is pre-installed on the HVR-1500A. As an HDV™ source feeder/recorder the HVR-1500A is positioned as the high-end HDV deck in Sony’s HVR series. Inheriting the design concept of the market-acclaimed DSR-1500A, the HVR-1500A offers the same convenient features that professional users demand, such as quick mechanical response, multi-format DV playback, and a rich set of professional audio/video interfaces ranging from analog to SDI and AES/EBU. Additionally, the HVR-1500A offers HD-SDI input/output and RS-422A control capabilities, bridging HDV source material and assets with high-end HD formats and HD editing environments. With the optional HVBK-1520 board installed, the HVR-1500A has a wide range of capabilities such as up-converting DV recordings to 1080i or 720p signals and cross-convert 1080i HDV recordings to 720p signals. This allows operators to integrate DV and HDV source footage and assets into the same HD editing system and gives them the flexibility to choose between either a 1080i or 720p system.
