Sony XDS-PD2000 (XDSPD2000, XDS/PD2000, xds-pd2000) XDCAM Deck / IT Server

XDCAM Deck / IT Server with two SxS memory slots, professional disc drive & 500GB SSD

The XDS-PD2000 supports the operation of all SxS card types, including Memory Stick and SDHC cards, using MEAD adaptors.It also supports all XDCAM Professional Disc models in all recording formats and modes. The internal 512GB Solid State Drive (SSD) and the 1Gigabit Ethernet connection allow a total of about 16 hours of continuous recording in HD422 50Mbps and multi-user simultaneous access to the AV content.

Hybrid XDCAM workflow
The XDCAM Station is a professional media station with a built-in storage and interfaces for both Professional Disc media and SxS memory cards, enabling hybrid operation in an XDCAM workflow. It features better support for multi-task operations, networking, and other IT functions. Adding the XDCAM Station to an XDCAM workflow makes file-based operation much more convenient and efficient.

Increases functionality with Professional Disc drive
The XDS-PD2000’s internal 4th generation 4G Professional Disc drive allows partial transfer of materials or full backup from the Professional Disc to the internal 512GB SSD. Furthermore, materials from the internal SSD can be partially copied to the Professional Disc. Simultaneous operation of baseband recording and playback or slow-motion is possible. Editing while recording (growing file editing) is also possible.


  • Supports all XDCAM storage formats
  • The XDS-PD2000 brings the XDCAM Professional Disc optical memory and XDCAM EX SxS solid state memory workflows together in a powerful ‘bridge” solution. The XDS-PD2000 supports all XDCAM and XDCAM EX file formats, codecs and metadata, effectively offering complete format transparency. It also supports industry-standard VDCP, ftp and CIFS protocols.
  • Supports 4th generation 4G Professional Disc drive and Quad Layer discs
  • The XDS-PD2000 supports the new high-speed DCHS optical drive. It handles the Dual Layer disc (PFD50DLA), Single Layer disc (PFD23A) and Quad Layer disc (PFD128QLW). Handles SxS Pro, SxS-1 and card adaptors for memory sticks and SDHCs. The 4G drive and Quad Layer discs offer larger storage volumes and higher access speeds. They are ideal for archiving large quantities of material.
  • Multi-tasking internal storage operations
  • The 512GB Solid State Drive (SSD) internal storage is capable of multi-tasking when carrying out certain tasks. This increases interoperability and overall efficiency when working with Network Production systems.
  • Familiar VTR-like user interface
  • The layout of controls on the XDS deck follows industry-standard conventions already familiar to most users. This makes it easy to use, configure and integrate into the overall workflow.
  • Enhances network functionality
  • The XDS-PD2000 allows users to access growing volumes of files from non-linear editors without file transfer, offering high-speed file transfer and multiple access via a network. The XDS-PD2000 offers 8 clients for file transfer and 8 clients for network control.
  • SD / HD cross-conversion
  • The XDS-PD2000 supports SD and HD as standard with up-conversion record, and up/down/cross-conversion playback.
