Model Description:
XDCAM MPEG HD422 Field Recorder, HD recording at up to 50 Mb/s, 1080i & 720P Rcd, HD/SD

Model Details

The PDW-HR1, the latest addition to the XDCAM family, is a highly mobile field recorder. Its design is similar to PDW-R1 SD Field Recorder, but the PDW-HR1 provides a lot of additional functionalities. Firstly the PDW-HR1 supports all the XDCAM formats as standard, including the frame rate of 23.98P in 1080i mode and SD (DVCAM and MPEG IMX). Also new concept GUI for EDL-based editing and direct DVB-ASI output provides the field operator more flexible workflow. Its compact, lightweight body makes the PDW-HR1 ideal for use in the field as a pool-feed recorder, backup recorder, comact recorder installed in an extremely confined space such as a car or helicopter and simple field editor by itself.
