Sony announces March ’06 XDCAM HD introduction

Sony will introduce a high-definition version of the XDCAM optical technology in March 2006.

An HD version of the XDCAM system will let producers combine HD resolution with the same IT-based workflow enhancements available in the current XDCAM system. The XDCAM HD will be compatible with the PFD-23 professional disc media used in the current XDCAM system.

XDCAM HD products, featuring one camcorder and two decks, will offer users the ability to record 1080i video at three data recoding rates: 18-, 25-, and 35Mb/s. The XDCAM HD camcorder will also feature 24P acquisition and native recording capabilities and be able to record four channels of 16-bit, 48kHz uncompressed audio.

The XDCAM HD products record high-definition content to Sony’s Professional Disc media using an HD MPEG-2 Long GOP video compression codec. With the XDCAM HD system, users will be able to record up to two hours of content on the optical media.
