Description

Sony HDCAM-SR VTRs - the RGB 4:4:4 full-bandwidth high-definition VTRs at the top of the Sony HD VTR lineup - have been well received, especially in movie-making, commercial productions, and high-end television production applications, due to their unprecedented picture quality and system functionalities.

As HD-based programme origination has become more commonplace, demand has steadily escalated for increased levels of quality criteria: even more video bit rates, higher frame rates, and greater format flexibility.

Reflecting these new criteria, Sony has announced a new HDCAM-SR studio recorder, the SRW-5800, capable of recording at an amazingly high video bit rate of 880 Mb/s. The new SRW-5800 HDCAM-SR Studio Recorder is equipped with the same key features* as the SRW-5500 and SRW-5000 recorders in the series, but exclusively provides the outstanding capability of 1080/60P and 50P recording through the use of 880 Mb/s data rate. The 1080/60P and 50P recording system is equally ideal for origination of progressive-based programmes, 720P programmes, and high-quality slow-motion programmes.

With the support of an extensive range of signal formats, including 1080/60P and 50P, plus outstanding system versatility and reliability, the SRW-5800 HDCAM-SR Studio Recorder should be the universal choice for high-end content creation today and in the future.

Features

HDCAM-SR Format - For Exceptionally High Picture Quality Recording
The SRW-5800 recorder adopts the HDCAM-SR format, which records 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) and 10-bit colour depth. It enables both full-bandwidth 4:4:4 RGB and high-quality 4:2:2 Y/Cb/Cr recording, delivering optimal picture performance to suit many different production requirements.

Twice-speed Material Transfer*
The SRW-5800 allows 4:2:2 material to be transferred to servers and nonlinear editing systems at twice the normal speed using a standard Dual-link HD-SDI interface. This is achieved by playing back tapes at 880 Mb/s (double the normal 440 Mb/s speed) and transferring the data using two linked HD-SDI cables. This capability can greatly reduce the time required for material transfer.
*This feature will be available during 2008

Multiple Frame Rates
With the SRW-5800, the entire range of both interlace and progressive frame rates are available, ranging from 24-frame progressive imaging, to 60-frame interlace for high-end HDTV production applications. This includes 60P, 59.94P, 50P, 60i, 59.94i, 50i, 30PsF, 29.94PsF, 25PsF, 24PsF, and 23.98PsF.

720P Recording Capability
The SRW-5800 recorder can also record in 720/59.94P or 720/50P formats, meeting different needs for DTV programmeming and transmission.

12-channel Independently-editable Audio
The SRW-5800 recorder offers up to 12 channels of 24-bit audio at 48 kHz in both 1080- and 720-line recordings, to meet the most demanding audio recording requirements in digital content mastering.

The SRW-5800 can also record non-audio data streams within the audio recording area by packaging this data within an AES/EBU wrapper. 

Furthermore, the SRW-5800 can accept AES/EBU data with 44.1, 32-kHz audio, or unsynchronised with video in audio tracks.

Legacy Playback Capability
The SRW-5800 recorder can play back HDCAM and Digital Betacam format tapes for more flexible operations

Internal Format Conversion
The SRW-5800 is equipped with a powerful internal format converter that enables many different types of conversion such as 3-2 pull-down, up-conversion, down-conversion, cross-conversion, colour-space conversion, and P-to-i conversion. This powerful built-in converter makes the SRW-5800 very versatile in post-production.

Easy Management of Setup/System Menus
The SRW-5800 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-5800 VTRs for quick and consistent setup of multiple VTRs.

Furthermore, equipped with an Ethernet interface, the SRW-5800 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.

Other Features
- Long recording time: up to 155 minutes on BCT-124SRL cassette 
- Frame-accurate insert/assemble editing 
- Digital jog sound 
- Confidence playback 
- Large 6.4-inch type* colour LCD that displays both playback pictures and various information

Let Sony Ci make the Cloud work for you

We’ve all heard about the Cloud, and how you need to be on it, or in it, to keep ahead in media production. What we’ve not all heard about is how to actually get there and how simple it can be for media companies to make it work for them. If you’re reluctant to make the leap, consider the experience of ITN Productions, the London-based bespoke production hub producing creative and commercially valuable content for the corporate, commercial, broadcast and digital sectors.

What is the JT-NM Tested Program
Bruce Devlin - new The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show 2019 has come and gone with the usual onslaught of product announcements, launch parties, demonstrations and the usual high-density crowds preventing any high-speed movement between halls. The IP showcase, this year, featured a JT-NM tested program. If you're unfamiliar with the JT-NM, then it's worth checking out their website jt-nm.org where you can find out about the work being done to coordinate the different aspects of building an inter-working ST 2110 eco-system. The JT-NM tested program catalogue can be downloaded from the website and it highlights a series of tests that were performed prior to NAB on various products to see how they performed against the written standards upon which the ST 2110 eco system is based.

IMF Adoption
Howard Twine The Interoperable Master Format isn’t new. It’s been around for more than six years. Despite this longevity, the broad adoption since the publication of SMPTE 2067 has been pretty slow. This is perhaps more because of the age old mantra “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it,” than the ease with which many could interpret the standard. However, it is safe to say that movie producers blazed a trail in using IMF for original content delivery. Perhaps the key is that those early adopters didn’t have any significant tape based infrastructure that had been modified for file-based working when receiving content. So, many longer established content distributors have the immense resources to create the vast array of versions required to address the ‘version issue.’ This being how do you get the same content to look good on the back of an aeroplane seat headrest or an iPhone in the back of car as well as a good old TV set. Over time these resources have been diminishing and many organisations recognise that they have to adopt workflow automation to survive.

State of the Nation - If Winter Comes
Dick Hobbs - new Here’s an important fact that might get lost in all the noise of the moment. HBO’s Game of Thrones, which is relentlessly covered in the press as well as being talked about by its fans, is not actually terribly popular. The opener of the current (and last, thank goodness) series attracted a consolidated audience of about 3.5 million – that includes 2.7 million who watched the first showing at 2am, plus those who watched it at a more civilised hour, or who recorded it. Informed comment seems to be that those who watch on catch-up at some time in the following week or so might add a million more.
