Sony PDW-HR1/MK1 (PDWHR1MK1, PDW HR1 MK1, PDW/HR1/MK1, pdw-hr1/mk1) XDCAM Field Editing Workstation with SxS Adaptor

The PDW-HR1/MK1, is the PDW-HR1 mobile deck with the PDBK-MK1 SxS Card Option pre-installed. The PDW-HR1 the latest addition to the XDCAM family, is a highly mobile field recorder. The PDBK-MK1 SxS Card Option enables you to review material recorded on either Professional Disc or SxS Card media. 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.
