Model Details

The SRW-1 HD Portable Digital Video Recorder and SRPC-1 HD Video Processor are the newest members of the CineAlta™ product lineup and form the first Sony full-bandwidth 4:4:4 (RGB) portable VTR system adopting the HDCAM-SR format. The SRW-1/SRPC-1 offers virtually lossless 1080-line high-definition recordings at multiple frame rates on the HDCAM-SR tape media. The SRW-1/SRPC-1 connects to its companion HDCF950 portable camera via HD-SDI dual link or optional optical fiber cable to create a convenient, portable full-bandwidth 4:4:4 (RGB) image capturing system. The SRW-1 can also be configured with the HDWF900 HDCAM camcorder to record HD 4:2:2 component images. The SRPC-1 processor unit provides a variety of video-processing functions and houses an array of input and output connectors, including HD/SD signals, 12 channels of digital audio, and 4 channels of analog audio. The processing functions include 2-3 pull-down insertions for 525 down conversion, and RGB 4:4:4 to Y/Pb/Pr 4:2:2 color space conversion. The system is capable of operating in three recording modes. SQ (standard Quality) providing 440 Mbps video payload to tape in both 4:4:4 or 4:2:2, HQ (High Quality) mode allowing for 2x speed recording yielding 880 Mbps to tape with a 2:1 compression ratio in full band RGB 4:4:4, and 3D mode where two separate 4:2:2 HD SDI inputs can be recorded simultaneously to the same tape, providing an efficient means of recording stereo full bandwidth 4:2:2 images for 3D productions. Each stereo channel is recorded at 440 Mbps with the benefits of full error correction to both channels.

High Quality HD Field RecordingWhen connected to its companion HDCF950 camera, the SRW-1/SRPC-1 creates a high quality portable HD image-capturing system. With full-bandwidth RGB 4:4:4 and top-quality 4:2:2 Y/Pb/Pr 10-bit recording capabilities, unprecedented picture quality meets the needs of the most demanding applications in movie-making, commercial production, high end television production and digital-content mastering.
Double-Speed RecordingThe SRW-1/SRPC-1 is equipped with a unique double-speed recording capability, which doubles the drum rotation and tape speed and therefore achieves a data transfer rate of 880 Mbps.
Multi Frame-Rate 1080 HD Recording and Playback The SRW-1/SRPC-1 supports both multi frame rate recording and playback using 1920 (H) x 1080 (V) active pixels.
720P Recording and PlaybackIn standard configuration, the SRW-1 can record in 4:2:2 720/59.94P format.
Long Recording TimeThe SRW-1/SRPC-1 is capable of recording up to 50 minutes at 1080/23.98P and up to 40 minutes at 1080/59.94i or 720/59.94P on a single S-sized HDCAM-SR cassette.
Single Fiber ConnectionDue to the implementation of an all-digital transmission system incorporating the latest optical technology, the cable connections of the SRW-1/SRPC-1 remain simple and clean. The single-cable transmission system carries all required lossless RGB signals from the HDC-F950 camera to the SRPC-1 Processor and then records them to the docked SRW-1 VTR.
RS-422 InterfaceThe RS-422 Sony 9 pin interface allows editors to control the SRW-1/SRP-1 remotely. Connecting to the server via an HD-SDI dual-link connection, the SRW-1/SRPC-1 acts as an on-line feeder, smoothly transferring the recorded material to the post production operation.
Detachable Control PanelA detachable control panel provides operators with a comfortable VTR operating environment.
Built-in Tele-File Read/Write CapabilityThe SRW-1/SRPC-1 has a built-in Tele-File feature to allow auxiliary information to be stored on a tape label containing an IC chip.
Internal Format-Conversion CapabilityIn addition to RGB 4:4:4 and Y/Pb/Pr 4:2:2 conversion, the SRW-1/SRPC-1 possesses a wide variety of format-conversion capabilities ranging from HD to HD and HD to SD.
