HDCAM SR format is Sony's highest quality production format, delivering RGB 4:4:4 full bandwidth High Definition for unprecedented picture quality.
As HD-based programme origination has escalated for feature films, HDTV and post production, HDCAM SR has become the natural choice for the interchange and delivery of HD content due to the virtually uncompressed picture quality, 12 audio channels, exceptional reliability, double speed transfer and many other advanced features.
The success of HDCAM SR has naturally led to a requirement for a playback-only ingest VTR - the SRW-5100 Studio Player.
The SRW-5100 is equipped with almost all the same key features as the SRW-5800 apart from recording and network file transfer capabilities. The SRW-5100 does fully support 880 Mbps playback supporting all SQ and HQ modes, dual channel (3D), 444 mode and X2 transfer speed to certain NLE.
A new option introduced with the SRW-5100 allows HDV output for simultaneous offline ingest to a non-linear editor via i.Link
