The HVR-1500 is an HDV source feeder/recorder positioned at the top of the Sony HDV Series. Inheriting the design concept of the market-acclaimed DSR-1500AP, the HVR-1500 offers the same convenient features that professional users demand, such as quick mechanical response, multi-format DV playback and a rich set of professional video/audio interfaces ranging from analogue to digital SDI and AES/EBU.

The HVR-1500 can also be used as a Standard Definition DVCAM recorder, in which case the same editing facilities as the DSR-1500AP are offered.

  • Switchable Recording - HDV 1080i/ DVCAM/DV and 60i/50i

    The HVR-1500 can be switched between HDV 1080i*, DVCAM and DV (SP)** recording modes, providing full flexibility to record in either standard definition or High Definition depending on your production needs. In addition, it can be switched between 60i and 50i modes, eliminating the need for two separate VTRs, one for each standard.

    * In HDV mode, editing capabilities are not available

    ** The HVR-1500 supports DV (SP) mode only; DV (LP) mode is not available. Assemble or insert editing is not supported in DV (SP) mode.

  • Playback Compatibility with DV (25 Mb/s) Family Formats

    For operational versatility, the HVR-1500 is designed to play back DV (25 Mb/s) family format recorded tapes without a mechanical adaptor and without having to switch playback modes on the menu. DVCPRO 25 recorded tapes (M-size cassettes) can also be played back.

  • Long Recording Time

    The HDV format adopts the same track pitch and tape speed as the DV format, thus offering the same recording time - a maximum of 276 minutes when recording on a PHDV-276DM Digital Master standard cassette tape and 63 minutes when recording on a PHDVM-63DM Digital Master mini cassette tape.

    The DVCAM format adopts a wider track pitch than the HDV/DV format (15 micrometers compared to 10 micrometers) and offers a maximum recording time of 184 minutes on a PDV-184N standard cassette tape and 40 minutes on a PDVM- 40N mini cassette tape.

  • Down-conversion Capability

    The HVR-1500 has a built-in downconversion capability that allows 1080i recordings to be output as 480i and 576i signals from the i.LINK and SD-SDI interfaces.

    These signals can also be output from the analogue component, composite, or S-Video connectors. This allows 1080i recordings to be edited using non-linear editing systems running DV editing software or to be viewed on an SD monitor.

    When down-converting the 1080i recording, the aspect ratio displayed can be converted from 16:9 to 4:3. Display modes can be selected from Squeeze or Edge crop.

  • HD-SDI Interface

    The HVR-1500 provides an HD-SDI output*, capability, through which 1080/60i or 1080/50i HDV recordings can be output in normal playback and search modes. Time code and audio signals are embedded in this HD-SDI output. This interface allows operators to integrate HDV footage and assets easily into existing HD-SDI-based editing systems such as the HDCAM and XDCAM HD systems.

    * HDV signals fed to the HVR-1500's i.LINK interface cannot be converted and output from the HD-SDI interface. The i.LINK input signal must be recorded to the HDV tape first. DVCAM/DV playback signals cannot be up-converted for HD-SDI output.

  • SD-SDI Interface

    The HVR-1500 also provides SD-SDI input*/output capability. Time code and audio signals are embedded in the SDI signal. This allows the HVR-1500 to connect with a wide variety of digital equipment including SDI-based editing systems.

    * SD-SDI signals fed to the HVR-1500's SD-SDI interface cannot be up-convereted to HDV signals for recording to tape or to HD-SDI signals for output from the HD-SDI interface.

  • AES/EBU Interface

    For professional digital audio needs, the HVR-1500 offers AES/EBU digital audio inputs/outputs.

  • i.LINK Interface

    The HVR-1500 is equipped with a 6-pin i.LINK* interface. This allows it to transfer digital video, audio and command signals (in HDV, DVCAM and DV format) to a compatible VTR or non-linear editing system via just a single cable.

    * i.LINK is a trademark of Sony used only to designate that a product contains an IEEE 1394 connector. Not all products with an i.LINK connector will necessarily communicate with each other. For information on compatibility, operating conditions and proper connection, please refer to the documentation supplied with any device with an i.LINK connector. For information on devices that include an i.LINK connection, please contact your nearest Sony office. DVCAM/DV signals fed to the HVR-1500's i.LINK interface cannot be up-converted to HDV signals for recording to tape or to HD-SDI signals for output from the HD-SDI interface.

  • Analogue Interfaces

    As standard, the HVR-1500 provides analogue output interfaces for video and audio. These include composite, component and S-Video (Y/C) outputs and two channels of audio output (via XLR connectors). Using these interfaces, the HVR-1500 can act as a source feeder for an analogue editing system and as a simple playback viewer in various applications such as broadcast station studios, OB vehicles and production offices. By installing the optional HVBK-1505 Analogue Input Board, a full range of analogue video and audio inputs also become available, allowing a smooth transition to digital systems.

  • RS-422A Control

    The HVR-1500 is equipped with an RS-422A interface, which is the industry standard for professional editing. This allows the VTR to interface with other Sony VTRs, editing controllers such as the Sony RM-280 Editing Controller and non-linear editing systems.

    The RS-422A offers frame-accurate insert and assemble editing in DVCAM mode. It can also be used for source feeding* in HDV mode.

    * The availability of frame-accurate control is dependent on the connected editing controller. For information on compatible editing controllers, please contact your nearest Sony office.

  • HD and SD Reference Inputs

    The HVR-1500 accepts both HD and SD reference signals.

  • Time Code Input/Output

    The HVR-1500 has a time code input/output capability to synchronise time code when making tape copies.

  • Built-in Signal Generator

    Equipped with a built-in signal generator, the HVR-1500 can generate colour bars or black burst for video and a 1-kHz tone or silent signal for audio. These signals can be recorded to tape when the HVR-1500 is operating in DVCAM or DV mode* to create a pre-striped tape prior to editing. They can also be output from the analogue and digital interfaces to adjust other equipment in the system.

    * Recording these signals to tapes in the HDV format is not available.

  • Quick Response Mechanism

    Quick mechanical response is an essential requirement for professional video production. The HVR-1500 provides this feature by using a reliable direct reel and drum motor mechanism. Fast forward and rewind speeds are an impressive 85 times normal play speed. In HDV mode, the colour picture search* speeds are ±8 and ±24 times normal play speed and in DVCAM mode they are between -60 and +60 times normal play speed. In editing environments, where speed and time are critical, this mechanism reduces the frustration editors often feel when they are searching for specific scenes.

    *The colour picture search function can be controlled through the RS-422A interface.

  • Tape and Head Cleaner for Reliable Operation

    The HVR-1500 incorporates a tape cleaner that adopts a high-grade sapphire blade. This tape cleaner helps prevent signal dropouts by cleaning away particles that accumulate while the tape is running. The recorder also incorporates a head cleaner to maintain the performance of the drum heads. These cleaners improve the reliability of recording and playback.

  • Built-in 2.7-inch LCD Monitor

    The HVR-1500 is equipped with a 2.7-inch* colour LCD monitor with a high resolution of 211 K dots. This allows operators to view the input source during recording and check the playback picture in a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. It can also display the 4-channel audio level meters and time code, as well as setup menus for video, audio and VTR settings. Three different display modes can be selected.

    * Viewable area, measured diagonally.

  • Auto Repeat

    The HVR-1500 has a convenient auto repeat function. This enables the VTR to automatically rewind the tape to either the beginning of the tape or to a user-defined index point and to start playback again from there. Repeat start and stop index points can also be defined by setting time code values.

  • Picture Search (in HDV Mode)

    With an editing controller, such as the Sony RM-280 Editing Controller, the HVR-1500 provides a convenient colour picture search function for HDV recordings*.

    * In HDV mode, audio jog search is not supported and video jog search is supported in forward mode only.

  • Picture Search Using Menu Keys

    The HVR-1500 provides a picture search function via the menu keys on its front panel. By pressing the relevant keys, forward and reverse search of 8 and 10 times normal play speed is available in HDV and DVCAM/DV modes, respectively. The menu keys also allow frame-by-frame picture search, as well as slow-motion playback.

  • Assign Button

    Functions frequently used for VTR operations can be assigned to an ASSIGN button located on the front panel of the HVR-1500.

  • Digital Slow Motion and Jog Sound (in DVCAM mode)

    When used with an editing controller, such as the Sony RM-280 Editing Controller, the HVR-1500 can provide excellent digital slow motion and jog sound for DVCAM recordings. It offers variable speed playback within the range of -0.5 to +0.5 times normal play speed. This allows operators to locate editing points quickly and accurately using noiseless slowmotion playback pictures.

  • Audio Level Control

    Audio levels can be adjusted via the control knobs on the front panel. In recording mode, the input audio level of the analogue XLR, SD-SDI, AES/EBU and i.LINK* interfaces can be adjusted. In playback mode, the analogue XLR, SD-SDI, HD-SDI, AES/EBU and i.LINK output audio levels can be controlled.

    * In HDV mode, the input/output audio levels cannot be adjusted.Technical Specifications

Looking for the Silver Lining
Harry Grinling According to the World Meteorological Organisation, there are 10 different types of cloud, each of which can be divided further into sub-types. They range from the cirrus, the thin floaty clouds which generally serve only to make the sky look beautiful to the towering, all-embracing cumulonimbus which can deliver fearful quantities of rain – the biggest cumulonimbus clouds can contain 50 million tonnes of water.

NAB Intelligence
Bruce Devlin - new It's that time of year again. 06:30 on road bikes on the Las Vegas Strip with a merry bunch of folks who believe they look good in lycra. As we pedal West up the hill towards Red Rock there will be stories of the year just gone and questions about what to look for at the show. I, for one, will be attending the Devoncroft event to check up on who is spending what and where. I will then look forward to the topics that might be buzzing around the halls. I predict there will be many displays of Machine Learning hiding under the banner of Artificial Intelligence. Some of these will show better picture quality, others will show personalisation engines, some will be improved search tools and yet more will be synthesising pictures and motions to replace reality with and Artificial reality that's more compelling for the viewer.

4k and HDR Wireless Camera Transmitters
David Edwards Across the globe, live events represented over 50 percent of the most watched TV programs last year. However, big budget episodic shows are impacting live TV and the way viewers want to see their content. Viewers are demanding the same quality of production for live event broadcasts as they see in pre-recorded TV series and films. Producers of live content are looking to new, immersive and cinematic mobile camera views to better achieve these results. This presents a challenge to live production teams as these new camera views and angles must match the quality of the rest of the production -  the demand for mobility means that the cameras need to be wireless.

Keeping Your Post Prodction on Track with Subclips and Search Bins
Alex Macleod

For my 2nd Kit Plus article I thought I’d try and build on the theme of my first, and that’s one of making sure things are organised at all levels of your post production projects.

Last time I talked about trying as best as you can to stick to the ‘two week rule’, making sure that the names & locations of every asset you import, and every bin & sequence that you create in your project - will make sense to you regardless of how long it is you spend away from it.

TV Futures - The Shadowing Experience
Daniel Jones My name is Daniel Jones, and it is no accident that I’m currently studying BSc (Hons) Television and Broadcasting at the University of Portsmouth. Since completing GSCE media studies I have been constantly questioning what I watch with questions such as, “Wow, how was that filmed?” or “That looks amazing, I wonder how long that took?” It should come as no surprise that I made it a big focus of mine to get myself some real work experience to give myself some answers to these production questions.
