Sony HDW-M2000P HDCam Studio VTR Digital Video Betacam Cassette Recorder Player. IN GOOD CONDITION AND IN FULL WORKING ORDER. Versatile workhorse HDCAM Studio VTRs with 24P-recording/playback capabilities.With the rapid spread of HD in video productions, the HDW-M2000P Series provides a cost-effective and feature-enhanced HD solution focused on streamlining the migration process to full DTV operations. This is the latest HDCAM Series of products from Sony that have revolutionised the world of movie making since the first model was introduced in 1997. In response to increasing demand for 24P-based HD programme origination, the HDW-M2000P Series accommodates recording at frame rates of 23.98PsF and 24PsF to serve as a cost-effective entry to CineAlta operations. The capability to output the converted 720P signals allows even greater flexibility in your operations.
Other quick and easy functions enable frame-accurate editing, high-speed picture search as well as the smooth sync of audio signals with pictures. The continually improving line-up of the HDW-M2000P Series allows you to select the most appropriate HDCAM VTR for your operational and budgetary needs. With easy maintenance in a wide yet affordable price range, each model offers different combinations of BETACAM format playback capabilities.
All products operate in multiple modes, including 59.94i, 50i, 29.97PsF, 25PsF, 24PsF and 23.98PsF. A wide choice of models with high quality and operability for which the HDCAM format is renowned ensures the HDW-M2000P Series offers an economically balanced solution for HD programming.
Down conversion is not available for tapes played back at 23.98 and 24 frames. The HDW-M2000P Series high-definition VTRs are not only affordable but they also provide a smooth migration path into the world of HDTV. A choice of five models suits budgetary and operational needs. As well as HDCAM recording/playback, the HDW-M2000P Series VTRs are equipped with backward playback capability for current half-inch tape formats.Playback-compatible formats vary by product. Superb picture quality with high reliability and robustness are inherited from the BETACAM Series. The HDW-M2000P adopts proven HDCAM format and state-of-the-art HDCAM compression technology to record high-definition component digital signals. This excellent compression scheme maintains a high 140 Mbps video bit rate (data rate on tape of 185 Mbps).
The HDW-M2000P Series enables both insert or assemble editing with frame accuracy where each channel of video and audio signal is independently editable. You can execute precise editing on HDCAM tapes in machine-to-machine or A/B roll configurations.
Audio and image in sync. The editing process is made easier by accessing recognisable colour pictures in shuttle mode at speeds up to +/-50 times normal playback. With the digital jog sound mode you can quickly and precisely establish an editing point while monitoring digital audio signals, which means they remain in absolute sync with the pictures. Smoother audio mixing at edit points. Like all Sony half-inch professional formats, the HDW-M2000P Series features Digital Audio Crossfade.This enables previously recorded audio signals to be read in advance using pre-read heads and then re-recorded onto the same track after being mixed with the input audio signal. Metadata generally consists of user-defined data indicating when, where or by whom the material was created. The HDW-M2000P Series allows you to record UMID metadata on tape when the VTR performs dubbing, editing and copying through up/down conversion. Up to 255 bytes x3 packets of metadata per field can be recorded and transferred to other devices via HD-SDI or SDTI. Dynamic Tracking playback capability provides high-quality pictures over a range of -1 to +2 times normal playback speed during playback of HDCAM tapes, -1 to +3 times for BETACAM/BETACAM SP/MPEG IMX/Digital BETACAM tapes, and -1 to +2 times for BETACAM SX tapes. Built-in up and down converters. In addition to the HDCAM format you can play back a variety of legacy SDTV VTR formats. Each format is reproduced in its corresponding vertical resolution for output signals in 1080i, 576i and 480i. Built-in up and down converters take programmes in SDTV for HDTV transmission and down-convert HD formats as super-sampled SD images.
This super-sampled HD origination produces standard-definition 480 and 675-line NTSC/PAL signals that are superior to those originated in standard definition. Interlace and progressive switchable operation with 24P mode. Recording and playback of the HDCAM format is available in 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i, 1080/29.97PsF and 1080/25PsF frame rates. The HDW-M2000P Series also enables legacy playback of both 480/59.94i and 576/50i on the same deck, making it extremely effective for international programming.To meet the growing demand for 24P programming all HDW-M2000P recorders offer 23.98PsF/24PsF recording, as well as conversion to a 25PsF signal (with the appropriate time-code conversion for 24P creation). For further enhanced flexibility, the HDW-M2000P Series range can output the converted 720/59.94P signal from the 59.94i or 29.97PsF playback. The frame rate of the source tape cannot be converted at the output between 1080/59.94i and 1080/50i or between 480/59.94i and 576/50i. Playback of a 576-line analogue BETACAM tape on the HDW-M2000/S2000/M2100 (NTSC model), and playback of a 480-line analogue BETACAM tape on the HDW-M2000P/S2000P/M2100P (PAL model) is for monitoring purpose only. Down conversion and/or pull-down of tapes played back at 23.98PsF or 24PsF frame rates are not provided.
Long recording time on a single cassette. The HDCAM formats high density recording capability and compression technology allows the HDW-M2000P Series to cover a wide range of programming, including news, sports and production. A long maximum recording time of 124 minutes is available at 1080/59.94i, with 149 minutes at 1080/50i and 155 minutes at 1080/24PsF for each L cassette.Small cassettes can also be used to provide a maximum of 40 minutes at 1080/59.94i, 48 minutes at 1080/50i and 50 minutes at 1080/24PsF. Digital audio and Dolby® recording. The HDCAM format allows you to record four channels (two AES/EBU stereo pairs) of non-compressed digital audio (20 bit at 48kHz). Further options available with the HDW-M2000P Series are the ability to record non-audio data streams in the audio recording area by packaging data within an AES/EBU wrapper as well as recording Dolby-E and Dolby AC-3 data (non-audio) streams on the audio tracks. Dolby and the double-D symbol are trademarks of Dolby Laboratories Inc. Compact design and low-power consumption. The lightweight and compact 4RU-size design means the HDW-M2000P Series models weigh just 23kg (50lb 11oz), which is 12kg (26lb 7oz) lighter than the HDW-500 HD Video Recorder. Compactness and low-power consumption are ideal for both studios and outside broadcast vans. 4RU size = 427 x 174 x 540 mm (16 7/8 x 6 7/8 x 21 1/2 inches). The HDW-M2000P Series features a wide range of interfaces, including HD SDI I/O, SDI output (D1 component), SDTI I/O (optional requires HKDW-102 SDTI interface board), analogue component output, analogue composite output (NTSC/PAL), digital audio I/O (AES/EBU), analogue audio I/O and audio monitor output (2-ch analogue). The HDW-M2100/M2100P player provides outputs only. The compact yet comprehensive control panel on the HDW-M2000P Series help you quickly get the most out of the product. The design and functionality inherited from the BETACAM SP VTRs is supplemented with a multi-function display on the control panel that provides comprehensive information and quick access. Each of the four audio channels has its own dedicated control knobs and meter displays.
An optional HKDW-101 control panel enables you to control VTRs simultaneously from the same panel. Easily accessible plug-in boards for most of the circuitry of the HDW-M2000P Series facilitate quick and easy maintenance. The drum assembly design utilises an upper drum mechanism and auto adjusent function for simple, low-cost maintenance that drastically reduces the time required to undertake periodic drum replacement. This is the same design used in MPEG IMX VTRs and BETACAM SX recorders. H12 : Drum Hours r 6681.
