Sony DVCAM DSR-80P Digital Videocassette Recorder, Used

Condition: Good

3 months warranty

The DSR-80/80P is a/-inch digital video cassette4recorder that uses the DVCAM digital recordingformat. This system achieves stable, superb picturequality by digitally processing video signals that areseparated into color difference signals and luminancesignals (component method).The DSR-80/80P unit is equipped with the variety offunctions that are needed for videocassette recordersand players used in professional digital video editingsystems. It supports the ClipLink™ functiondeveloped by Sony Corporation for highly efficientvideo editing. When connected to a SonyEditStation™, the unit serves as part of a powerfulnon-linear editing systemThe unit is also equipped with a full-fledged analoginterface to support hybrid systems that combineconventional analog equipment with digital equipment.The DSR-80/80P's main features are described below.DVCAM FormatDVCAM is based on the consumer DV format, whichuses the 4:1:1 component digital format, and providesa1/-inch digital recording format for professional use.4High picture quality, high stabilityVideo signals are separated into color differencesignals and luminance signals, which are encoded andcompressed to one-fifth size before being recorded toensure stable and superb picture quality.Because the recording is digital, multi-generationdubbing can be performed with virtually nodeterioration of quality Non-linear editingThis is an editing method that uses video and audiosignals that have been digitally encoded and recorded ona hard disk as digital data. When compared withconventional (linear) editing methods, non-linear editingoffers vastly improved efficiency in editing operations,such as by eliminating tape transport time.1).Wide track pitchThe recording track pitch is 15 µm, fully 50 percent wider than the DV format's 10-µm track pitch. Thanks to this feature, the DVCAM format sufficiently meets the reliability and precision requirements of professional editing. High-quality PCM digital audio PCM recording makes for a wide dynamic range and a high signal-to-noise ratio, thereby enhancing sound quality. There are two recording modes: 2-channel mode (48- kHz sampling and 16-bit quantization), which offers sound quality equivalent to the DAT (Digital Audio Tape) format, or 4-channel mode (32-kHz sampling and 12-bit quantization). Playback compatibility with DV format A DV cassette recorded on a DV-format VCR can be played back on this unit. (Cassettes recorded in LP mode cannot be played back.) Choice of two cassette sizes The unit can use both standard-size and mini-size DVCAM cassettes.

• According to cassette size, it automatically changes the position of the reel drive plate.

• The maximum recording/playback times are 184 minutes for standard size cassettes and 40 minutes for mini-size cassettes.

Digital interfacesThe unit provides the following two digital interfaces.

• SDTI (QSDI): This interface enables SDTI (QSDI)-format video, audio and time code signals to betransferred between this unit and the Sony EditStationat normal speed.

• AES/EBU interface : This interface enables AES/EBU-format digital audio signals to be input andoutput.As an option, you can also use the SDI (Serial DigitalInterface) as an interface for D1 (component) formatdigital video and audio signals.Analog interfacesThe unit also comes with analog interfaces enabling itto be connected to analog video and audio equipment.

• Analog video : These interfaces include a componentinterface (can be switched to RGB), compositeinterface, and S-video interface.• Analog audio : 4-channel input and 4-channel outputare both provided.Facilities for High-efficiencyEditingThe unit provides an abundance of functions thatenhance editing efficiency and precision.........................................................................................................................................................................................................1) QSDI is a type of SDTI.SDTI is the name of a standard interface established asSMPTE 305M.This unit uses SDTI to transmit DV data, and the input/output connectors are labeled "SDTI(QSDI)".6Chapter 1 OverviewSupports ClipLink functionIn response to commands sent from the EditStation,index pictures that are recorded on tape or ClipLinklog data that is recorded in the cassette memory can betransferred to the EditStation. The EditStationoperator can then efficiently use these pictures anddata in a preliminary editing session.For more information about the ClipLink function, refer tothe "ClipLink™ Guide" also supplied with this unit.Internal time code generator/readerThe unit contains a time code generator/reader whichcan generate and read longitudinal time code (LTC) inthe SMPTE format (DSR-80) or EBU format (DSR-80P), to ensure frame-accurate editing.When the unit is equipped with an optional DSBK- 130/130P Time Code Input/Output Board, it can output the time code read from tape as analog (LTC) signal, and receive externally generated time code (LTC). Remote control The unit can be operated by remote control from an editing controller that supports the RS-422A interface or from on optional SIRCS such as the DSRM-10 or SVRM-100A. High-speed search function The unit has a picture search function that allows you to view color picture at playback speeds up to 32 times normal speed in forward and reverse directions. When remote-controlling this unit in shuttle mode from an editing controller or a remote controller, you can search at any speed in the range 0 (still) to 32 times normal in both directions. You can also search frame-by-frame in jog mode. At search speeds up to 5 times normal, you can also hear playback audio. In indicator and menu indications, however, the "SDTI(QSDI)" name is shortened to "QSDI". In the remainder of this manual, the short form ("QSDI") is used. 2) SIRCS (Sony Integrated Remote Control System) A command protocol to remote control Sony professional videocassette recorders/players.
