Sony announces XDCAM HD

September 21, 2005

At IBC2005, Sony announced XDCAM HD. The format pairs high definition picture quality with the workflow benefits of the XDCAM Professional Disc production system.

XDCAM HD delivers the advantages of nonlinear, file-based working. Users can choose among three MPEG Long GOP recording bit-rates: 18-, 25-, or 35Mb/s.

The XDCAM system’s rich file management and metadata capabilities transform workflow efficiency — from in-the-field acquisition to studio-based production and playout.
