Sony DVW-2000P (DVW2000P, DVW/2000P, dvw-2000p) Digital Betacam Studio Edit Recorder

Digital Betacam is in widespread use world-wide for the production of very high quality programme material. There is a substantial installed base of products and the format is readily accepted by many of the world’s most prestigious broadcasters. You can choose from a range of camcorders, studio VTRs, office players and a portable recorder for productions such as drama, natural history, arts, commercials or where you need to guarantee the best results for general TV programming.

The DVW-2000P is a Digital Betacam studio recorder/player which replaces the DVW-500P. It records and replays Digital Betacam component digital video, and packs high quality video performance, 4 channels of 20 bit digital audio and class-leading editing performance into a compact 4U chassis.


Fast familiar editing performance

  • Operators around the world are familiar with the editing features provided by the DVW-A500P. The same easy-to-use controls have been designed into the DVW-2000P. Assemble, Insert and Pre-read editing combined with smooth Jog and Shuttle control keeps the edit session moving at a rapid pace.

Long record duration onto digital tape

  • The DVW-2000P records up to 124 minutes onto a large Digital Betacam cassette and up to 40 minutes onto a small cassette. That's significantly more than the capacity of a Betacam SP VTR, and the pictures look better too.

Flexible signal interfaces

  • The DVW-2000P has composite and component analogue, and SDI inputs and outputs as standard. Audio can be input and output from the DVW-2000P via the analogue, AES/EBU or SDI interfaces which are a standard feaure of every machine.

Industry-standard remote control interface

  • The RS-422A control port allows control from a wide range of Sony and third party controllers. You can quickly connect the recorder to your favourite edit controllers for studio or outside productions.

Easy integration into existing cart systems

  • Digital Betacam VTRs are the ideal machines with which to digitise an existing Betacam SP "on-air" facility. The DVW-2000P is the same 4U height as the MSW-M2000P/1 Series MPEG IMX VTRs, and can be installed into Sony or third party cart machines with minimum disruption to your operation.

Audio "track bouncing" for speedy sound editing

  • Each of the 4 channels of 20 bit digital audio can be independently edited, and audio can be edited seperate to video even in pre-read mode. So, you can "bounce" audio tracks from channel to channel for complete flexibility in audio post production.

Automatic alignment after routine maintenance

  • Automatic alignment of the signal path after routine servicing is achieved via the Maintenance Menu of the DVW-2000P. This speeds up routine maintenance and keeps operational downtime to a minimum.

High Definition Up-conversion with optional plug-in board

  • In recognition of the continued increase in the number of High Definition productions, a plug-in HD Up-convertor board can be fitted into the DVW-2000P. This provides a 1080/50i output via HD-SDI when replaying Digital Betacam cassettes.

Memory Stick slot for rapid VTR configuration

  • A Memory Stick slot is located at the front of the VTR, and operational set-ups can be uploaded and downloaded to the DVW-2000P from the Memory Stick. This feature is especially useful to quickly reset to a standard set-up after VTRs are returned from hire.
