Sony DSR-1500AP DVCAM VTR - RS422 - Also Plays DV & DVCPRO. Now includes firewire interface as standard

Sony DSR-1500AP features

Playback capability of DV(25 Mb/s) format recorded tapes The DSR-1500AP has an excellent playback compatibility with all DV family formats (25 Mbps). This includes DVCPRO. Tapes of all these formats can be played back in the DSR-1500AP without any special mechanical adapter or menu selection.
Excellent Digital Slow Motion
The DSR-1500AP boasts excellent, noiseless, slow motion within the range of E.5 to +0.5 times normal playback speed, in increments of 1%. This range is effective for all DV formats (25Mbps) - DV, DVCAM and DVCPRO.
Excellent Digital Jog Sound
The DSR-1500AP offers excellently smooth and clear performance of jog sound within the range of E.5 to +0.5 times normal playback speed, just like an analogue VTR. This allows easier searching for editing points especially within interviews. This is available for all DV formats (25Mbps) - DV, DVCAM and DVCPRO.
DV (SP) Format Recording
The DSR-1500AP, with consumer DV recording capability (SP only), facilitates non-linear editing users to distribute the contents in consumer DV format. A standard-size DVCAM cassette, which in DVCAM mode records 184 minutes, can record for up to 276 minutes in DV mode. Similarly a mini-size DVCAM casette can record for up to 60 minutes (DV mode). In addition, recording in Auto Function (dubbing via i.LINK or SDTI) enables an accurate copy of audio, video and time code.
Improvement of multi-generation dubbing quality
Due to a newly developed filter colour blurring during baseband dubbing (e.g. SDI or analogue component) has been significantly reduced.
16:9 Aspect Ratio
Pictures recorded in a 16:9 aspect ratio include a wide aspect ID located in the VITC. The DSR-1500AP can record or erase this ID. For example, if you don’t want this ID signal to appear on a TV display, this ID can be erased. If the video signal passes through an editing or effects system this ID signal is often removed. The DSR-1500AP can re-record it.
The DSR-1500AP supports not only LTC timecode conforming to the EBU format but also Vertical Interval Time Code (VITC) through all video signal interfaces. VITC enables video and timecode signals to be copied with just a single BNC cable via either the composite or SDI interfaces. It also allows users to record other timecode data in the auxiliary data area of the VITC which is especially helpful for off-line editing.
The DSR-1500AP supports the ClipLink function. Being integrated into a NLE system with Sony EditStations, the DSR-1500AP plays an active role by sending the ClipLink information data onto the EditStations to provide great efficiency through the whole editing process. Also, the DSR-1500AP has a capability of full tape dubbing with ClipLink Log Data either through i.LINK or a combination of SDTI (QSDI) + RS-422A.
Internal Signal Generator
The DSR-1500AP incorporates an internal signal generator. This generates either colour bars (100% or 75%) or black /burst signals for video and a 1 kHz tone or silence for audio. This function is convenient for recording a pre-striped tape prior to editing.
Reduction of mosaic noise in panning pictures
By improving the DCT motion detector, the DSR-1500AP offers improvements in the picture quality especially when viewing panning pictures.
Picture quality in Slow motion
Employing the same Y-Add filter as that been used in Digital Betacam or Betacam SX VTRs, the DSR-1500AP offers smooth digital slow motion picture by greatly reducing vertical jitter. This ability of the DSR-1500AP is particularly apparent in the range of less than 0.5 times normal speed.
Auto Repeat function
The DSR-1500AP has an Auto Repeat function that enables continuous playback between user defined IN and OUT points.
