Sony rolls out next generation HDCAM SR technology

Sony Electronics is unveiling the next generation of its HDCAM SR production technology.

The products include the new SRW-9000 HDCAM SR camcorder with an upgrade path to 35mm imaging and file-based production, the planned delivery of new SR memory solid-state media and more cost-effective BCT-SR series tape pricing.

The new SRW-9000 camcorder combines the SR format’s image quality with the versatility of a one-piece camcorder. The full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution camcorder uses 2/3in CCDs with a 14-bit A/D converter and digital signal processing to capture up to 1080/60P images. An upgrade path for the SRW-9000 to a 35mm imager and PL mount will be available as an option.

Sony also is announcing SR Lite, the latest in HDCAM SR compression. SR Lite is a 220Mb/s data rate codec based on the open MPEG-4 SStP (Simple Studio Profile) and will be supported as an MXF wrapped file. Three transfer rates — 880Mb/s, 440Mb/s and 220Mb/s — will all be available in future HDCAM SR products.
