QVC adds Sony HDCAM HD422 PDW-HD1500 optical decks
QVC is continuing its upgrade to tapeless HD production with the installation of Sony’s XDCAM HD422 PDW-HD1500 optical decks in the control room at its Studio Park headquarters in West Chester, PA. The network will primarily use the decks for the production of its live broadcast.
The PDW-HD1500 decks will be used to enhance QVC’s control room operations, allowing its 50 operators to realize a seamless transition from the remaining Digital Betacam equipment currently in use.
QVC currently uses a range of Sony HD broadcast and production technology, including HDC-1500 HD multiformat studio cameras and an MVS-8000A production switcher.
