The DVW A500P is the most fully-featured VTR in the Digital Betacam line-up. It records and replays component digital video using small and large Digital Betacam cassettes.
The DVW A500P can also replay Betacam and Betacam SP cassettes, allowing analogue material to be easily replayed into digital systems. 
The robust construction of the DVW-A500P, it's 4 channels of 20 bit digital audio and it's high quality video output have also made it a firm favourite for linear "on-air" playout.
The DVW-A500P is also the ultimate VTR for digital capture and play-out of SD (Standard Definition) material from Non-Linear editing and compositing suites.

High quality pictures for your prestige productions 
Digital Betacam was the first recording format from Sony to use data compression of the digital video signal. A very mild compression ratio was chosen to ensure that picture quality remains extremely high, especially for productions requiring complex multi-generation editing. Today, Digital Betacam equipment is in widespread use for productions where the best quality output is a mandatory requirement. 
  
16:9 operation for widescreen programming 
Widescreen production has been on the increase for a number of years, and the ability to record 4:3 or 16:9 pictures - automatically - ensures a long shelf-life for your programme. 
 
Top quality digital audio 
4 channels of 20 bit 48kHz digital audio are provided as standard on every Digital Betacam VTR, and each channel can be independently edited. So, you can be sure that your programmes will sound as good as they look. 
  
Easy migration from analogue infrastructures 
You can replay your Betacam and Betacam SP cassettes from the DVW-A500P. That keeps revenues flowing from archived material, and makes it easy to incorporate analogue material into your digital edit. 
  
Peace of mind even for the toughest operating environments 
Digital Betacam recorders and players are in continuous use feeding thousands of "on-air" channels 24 hours a day. Their operation has been well proven over many years, and provides the peace-of-mind you need whatever the application. 
  
Familiar operation and design 
Retraining technical and operational people can be a time-consuming business. The operational controls and mechanical design of the DVW-A500P are familiar to operators and engineers worldwide, keeping training costs to an absolute minimum.

What content providers need to know about OTT
Hiren Hindocha As OTT (Over-The-Top) technology has gotten more mature and established robust standards over the years, the concept of OTT monitoring is gaining popularity. With customer expectations soaring, it’s vital for OTT providers to deliver superior quality content. To deliver Quality of Experience (QoE) on par with linear TV broadcast, the entire system, starting from ingest to multi-bitrate encoding to delivery to CDN must be monitored continuously.

Using Wireless Transmission
Jeremy Benning Wireless acquisition is a staple of live sports, entertainment and reality shows where cable free capture permits shots not previously possible, for health and safety reasons, and gives the camera-operator greater artistic licence to roam. The same is increasingly true of narrative drama where cinematographers are keen to work handheld or Steadicam where that helps tell the story. Any equipment which frees their movement and time by being lighter, easier to use and reliable in performance is going to tick a lot of boxes.

Keeping it remotely real
Reuben Such Everyone wants to do more with less. Always have, although it could be argued that doing more with more is something to aspire to, not many have that luxury. So let’s stick with the prevailing winds of doing more with less, and not just doing more, but doing it remotely, particularly in terms of production. Remote production, in particular, is getting a lot of attention in the field these days, but not so much in terms of the remote operation of fixed studios.

Sony HDC-4800 Review
Andy McKenzie First announced at NAB 2016, the Sony HDC-4800 is a studio camera system capable of shooting 4K/UHD at up to 8x or full HD at up to 16x. With a price point upwards of £250,000 it is a very high-end product with a wide feature set. In Sony's own words, "This is the future of live production, designed to satisfy the storytelling aspect of modern sports production.” Deliveries began in mid 2017 and, after careful preliminary evaluation, we invested in several systems for our hire fleet ahead of the FIFA World Cup in Russia.
