OVERVIEW SPECS IN THE BOX REVIEWS ACCESSORIES Q&A The Sony SRW-5500/2 HDCAM-SR Studio Recorder is a full-bandwidth HDCAM-SR studio VTR. The deck is used in conjunction with Sony's top-quality CineAlta line of cameras, to deliver the pinnacle in high-definition program ingest and transfer. The HDCAM-SR format has been widely accepted by top professionals as the HD format of choice due to Sony's commitment to providing the highest quality solutions for the most demanding cinematographers and HD broadcasters. The SRW-5500/2 is capable of recording and playback of both HDCAM-SR and HDCAM video formats. Additionally, the /2 upgrade adds 444 RGB SQ recording and playback, which means the HKSR-5003 board is no longer necessary. This--combined with legacy playback of Digital BETA (using the optional HKSR-5002 board) and a host of other pro features--makes the SRW-5500/2 the ideal solution for top-end HDTV, broadcast, commercial, and digital cinema production. HDCAM-SR Format The SRW-5500/2 player adopts the HDCAM-SR format and plays back 1920 x 1080 resolution high-definition signals using the MPEG-4 Studio Profile compression scheme with a very mild compression ratio of 2.7:1 (4:2:2), 4:1 (4:4:4 SQ) or 2:1 (4:4:4 HQ) and 10-bit color depth. It enables both full-bandwidth 4:4:4 RGB and high-quality 4:2:2 Y/Cb/Cr playback, delivering optimal picture performance to suit many different production requirements. HDCAM Format Recording In addition to the HDCAM-SR format, the SRW-5500/2 enables HDCAM recording and playback in all frame rates specified by the HDCAM format, including 1080/23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 30PsF, and 1080/50, 59.94, 60i. It supports the full editing capability of HDCAM format recordings, including independent editing of the four audio channels. 1 Legacy Playback Capability Using the optional HKSR-5002 board, the SRW-5500/2 can play Digital Betacam format tapes for more flexible operation. Internal Format Conversion The SRW-5500/2 is optionally equipped with a powerful internal format converter that enables many different types of conversion such as 3:2 pulldown, upconversion, downconversion, cross-conversion and color-space conversion. This powerful optional HKSR-5001 format converter board makes the SRW-5500/2 very versatile in post-production. Easy Management of Setup/System Menus The SRW-5500/2 offers a highly effective way to manage its System Menu. Up to eight groups of parameters in the System Menu and Setup Menu can be individually saved as bank memory onto the internal memory of the VTR. They can also be saved onto Memory Stick media, enabling them to be copied onto other SRW-5500 VTRs for quick and consistent setup of multiple VTRs. Furthermore, equipped with an Ethernet interface, the SRW-5500 allows operators to remotely view the setup parameters saved in the VTR's memory bank, and to select a bank they want to use through a PC. Frame-accurate Insert/Assemble Editing The SRW-5500/2 is capable of insert or assemble editing with frame accuracy. Each video and audio channel is independently editable, and users can execute precise editing on HDCAM-SR or HDCAM tapes in machine-to-machine or A/B roll configurations. Dual-sync Operation A unique feature of the SRW-5500/2 allows users to seamlessly integrate the VTR into a 59.94 editing environment. In doing so, users can directly perform insert editing--from a 23.98PsF master tape to either a 1080/59.94i or a 525/59.94i recording--without having to first dub the master to 59.94 format. Audio Output Channel Selection The SRW-5500/2 is equipped with a unique internal audio-output router, which enables flexible audio-output channel routing without the use of an external audio-routing device. Any of the tape's available channels can be assigned to the embedded HD-SDI (Ch 1-12) and SDI (Ch 1-8) audio-output channels. This feature provides the flexibility needed when recording audio to different tape formats. High-Speed Color Picture Search The SRW-5500/2 provides recognizable color pictures in Shuttle mode at speeds of up to 42 times normal playback for the HDCAM-SR format, and at speeds of up to 50 times normal playback for the HDCAM and Digital BETACAM formats. Long Recording Time on a Single Cassette Utilizing the technologically advanced HDCAM-SR format's high-density recording capability and compression technology, the SRW-5500/2 is capable of recording up to 155 minutes at 1080/24PsF and up to 124 minutes at 1080/59.94i or 720/59.94p on a single L-sized cassette. S-sized cassettes can also be used, offering up to 50 minutes of recorded material at 1080/24PsF and up to 40 minutes at 1080/59.94i or 720/59.94p. Confidence Playback Separate dedicated playback heads immediately follow the recording heads so that actual audio and video recorded to tape can be monitored while recording. Confidence playback can be used to verify the quality of a recording without interrupting production. Pre-read Editing The SRW-5500/2 is equipped with advanced playbac
