Model Details

The HVR-1500A is an HDV™ source feeder/ recorder*1 positioned at the top of the Sony HDV Series. Inheriting the design concept of the market-acclaimed DSR-1500A, the HVR-1500A 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 analog to digital SDI and AES/EBU. The HVR-1500A also offers HD-SDI input/output and RS-422A control capabilities, bridging HDV source footage and assets with high-end HD formats and HD editing equipment. In addition, with the optional HVBK-1520 board installed, the HVR-1500A has a range of conversion capabilities that allow DV recordings to be up-converted to 1080i or 720P signals, and 1080i HDV recordings to be cross-converted to 720P signals. This allows operators to integrate DV and HDV source footage and assets into the same HD editing system, and gives them the flexibility to choose between either a 1080i or a 720P system. The HVR-1500A can also be used as a standard definition DVCAM™ recorder, in which case the same editing features as the DSR-1500A are offered. The HVR-1500A is certainly the HDV recorder of choice for environments where robustness and functionality are prime concerns.


Notes on the difference between Sony HVR-1500 verse Sony HVR-1500A:
- The Sony HVR-1500 can play back but cannot record DVCPRO 25 signals.
- The HVR-1500 can play back but cannot record 720/30P signals. When 720/30P recordings are played back, their signals are converted to 720/59.94P signals.
