NBC News to test Sony professional optical disc system

NBC News will use Sony's new XDCAM professional disc system in a pilot test program this spring prior to the system's use for the network's coverage of the Summer Games in Athens.

The XDCAM professional optical disc system achieves workflow innovation by recording both a high-resolution original and lower-resolution, but frame-accurate, proxy audio and video. From the camcorder, or mobile deck, ENG and EFP teams will transfer the proxy information to laptop editors or back to the studio at up to 30 times faster than real time, so producers can immediately start writing scripts or editing programs.

Field engineers can transfer the high-resolution footage either as video or as a data file over IP networks. In the case of compact decks or studio decks, this proxy material will transfer at up to 50 times faster than real time.
