Sony to extend XDCAM HD features with four new boards

Sony will introduce four new option boards for its XDCAM HD Professional Disc system to extend the system's capabilities next month at NAB2006 in Las Vegas.

The PDBK-101 network board delivers GigE capabilities for users in networked environments. The PDBK-102 allows input and output of 25Mb/s HDV streams (MPEG-2 transport streams) for interfacing with HDV products or HDV-based nonlinear editors via an i.LINK (IEEE 1394) port. The PDBK-103 offers an HD analog component input and RGB input. The PDBK-104 provides SD-SDI and SD composite inputs for HD upconversion recording capabilities.

The Sony XDCAM HD family of optical products includes the PDW-F350 and PDW-F330 camcorders and PDW-F70 and PDW-F30 decks.
