DW-F1600 offers multi-format recording flexibility as standard - including SD recording and a frame rate of 23.98P in 1080 mode.


The foundation of the PDW-F1600 deck incorporates the features of the PDW-HD1500, and acts as more than just a file-based recording deck. With its insert/assemble editing capability, it can be used as a recorder in a linear editing system - just like a conventional VTR.


IT/Network Friendly


In the Sony XDCAM series of products, recordings are made as data files in the industry-standard MXF (Material eXchange Format) file format. This allows material to be handled with great flexibility in an IT-based environment - easily available for copying, transferring, sharing and archiving. All these operations are accomplished without the need for a digitizing process.


File-based data copying allows for degradation-free dubbing of AV content, which can be performed easily on a PC. The file-based recording system also allows for material to be viewed directly on a PC, simply by linking it to the XDCAM unit via an i.LINK connection. This works in just the same way as a PC reading files on an external drive.


The PDW-F1600 XDCAM HD422 deck comes equipped with IT-friendly, computer-based interfaces. These include an i.LINK interface supporting File Access Mode as standard, and the Ethernet interface.


Easy Maintenance and High Reliability


XDCAM HD422 products use the same platform as the XDCAM products in wide use around the world. They share the advantage of no mechanical contact between the equipment and the recording media, achieving both a high level of durability and a long media life. XDCAM HD422 products also offer the same high resistance to shock and vibration as other XDCAM products.


Powerful Nonlinear Recording


The XDCAM HD products use a large-capacity nonlinear optical disc for recording, called the Professional Disc media, which Sony has developed specifically for professional recording applications.


The PFD50DLA and PFD23A are 12-cm, reusable optical discs. The PFD50DLA is a dual-layer disc with an overwhelming capacity of 50 GB, while the PFD23A is a single-layer, 23-GB disc. The large capacity of the PFD50DLA makes it possible to record up to approximately 95 minutes of high-quality MPEG HD422 material.


The Professional Disc is highly reliable and durable because it experiences no mechanical contact during recording or playback, and is packaged into an extremely durable and dust-resistant disc cartridge.


Non-contact recording and playback also makes it an ideal medium for long-term storage of AV assets. Whereas traditional tape archive systems must be rewound on a periodic basis to remove magnetic powder debris, the Professional Disc completely eliminates this process.


Its reliability has already been demonstrated by the huge number of XDCAM products deployed worldwide since 2003.


Highly Streamlined Workflows


At the same time as recording its high-resolution video and audio data, the XDCAM HD products also record a low-resolution version of this AV data on the same disc. Called "Proxy Data", this is much smaller in size than the high-resolution data (1.5 Mb/s for video and 0.5 Mb/s for audio).


Because of its lower resolution, Proxy Data can be transferred to a standard PC at an amazingly high speed, and easily browsed and edited using the PDZ-1 Proxy Browsing Software (or other compatible editing software offered by many industry-leading manufacturers). What's more, with the PDZ-1 software, it can be converted to the popular ASF format for playback on Windowsâ„¢ Media Player, providing dramatic improvements in production workflows. Proxy Data can also be viewed directly on a PC without data transfer using an i.LINK (File Access Mode) connection, and can even be sent over a standard Ethernet network.


The overall flexibility of Proxy Data means that it can be used for a variety of applications, such as immediate logging on location, off-line editing, daily rushes of shooting on location, client approvals, and more.


Metadata


 

All XDCAM HD422 products are capable of recording a variety of metadata, which provides a huge advantage when searching for specific data after an initial recording has been made. Information such as production dates, creator names and camera setup parameters can be saved, together with the AV material, on the same disc using the supplied PDZ-1 software. This makes it possible to organize and search through all recordings effectively. One particular metadata, called EssenceMarkâ„¢ (Shot Mark), is a convenient reference that can be added to desired frames to make them easy to recall in subsequent editing processes. Clipflag* is another convenient metadata which users can add to their desired clips as "OK", "NG" or "Keep".
