The SRW-5800 records 1920 x 1080 resolution high-definition signals in the HDCAM-SR format 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) and 10-bit colour depth. It enables both full-bandwidth 4:4:4 RGB and high-quality 4:2:2 Y/Cb/Cr recording.
The SRW-5800 recorder provides its recording capability at a high data rate of 880 Mb/s, which was only previously available on the SRW-1 HDCAM-SR Portable VTR. Thanks to this high bit rate, high-quality can be recorded in two different modes: 4:2:2/1080/60P and 50P mode, and 4:4:4 High Quality (HQ) mode. The entire range of both interlace and progressive frame rates are also available, from 24-frame progressive, to 60-frame interlace for high-end HDTV production applications.
Includes 60P, 59.94P, 50P, 60i, 59.94i, 50i, 30PsF, 29.94PsF, 25PsF, 24PsF, and 23.98PsF. Full range of conectivity avaliable audio and video SD/HD.
