Sony PDW-HD1500 XDCAM HD422

The PDW-HD1500 is the most highly specified recorder within the XDCAM HD line up, offering file-based HD acquisition onto optical Professional Discs.

  • High definition recording using MPEG-2 422P@HL compression at 50Mb/s data rate
  • 8 channels of digital audio
  • VTR-like JOG/shuttle operation and video interfaces including HD-SDI and SD-SDI

The PDW-HD1500 was designed by Sony to increase the appeal of XDCAM HD for high-end applications such as drama, documentary and natural history and for mainstream entertainment programmes that required a prestige quality look. File-based acquisition onto Professional Disc, with thumbnail and proxy operation also make the PDW-HDW-1500 ideal for networked applications where speed of production is a critical.

The PDW-HD1500 records and replays XDCAM HD 50 Mb/s 4:2:2 data to/from a 50 GB Dual-layer Professional Disc. With interfaces including i.LINK and Ethernet, it can operate at the heart of small or large scale file-based networked systems. VTR-like JOG/shuttle operation and video interfaces including HD-SDI and SD-SDI also makes the PDW-HD1500 ideal for operation in more traditional video-based installations.
