When high quality is your top priority.
Digital Betacam is in widespread use world-wide for the production of very high quality programme material. There is a substantial installed base of products and the format is readily accepted by many of the world’s most prestigious broadcasters. You can choose from a range of camcorders, studio VTRs, office players and a portable recorder for productions such as drama, natural history, arts, commercials or where you need to guarantee the best results for general TV programming.
The DVW-2000P is a Digital Betacam studio recorder/player which replaces the DVW-500P. It records and replays Digital Betacam component digital video, and packs high quality video performance, 4 channels of 20 bit digital audio and class-leading editing performance into a compact 4U chassis.
Digital Betacam was the first recording format from Sony to use data compression of the digital video signal. A very mild compression ratio was chosen to ensure that picture quality remains extremely high, especially for productions requiring complex multi-generation editing. Today, Digital Betacam equipment is in widespread use for productions where the best quality output is a mandatory requirement.
Widescreen production has been on the increase for a number of years, and the ability to record 4:3 or 16:9 pictures - automatically - ensures a long shelf-life for your programme.
4 channels of 20 bit 48kHz digital audio are provided as standard on every Digital Betacam VTR, and each channel can be independently edited. So, you can be sure that your programmes will sound as good as they look.
Digital Betacam recorders and players are in continuous use feeding thousands of “on-air” channels 24 hours a day. Their operation has been well proven over many years, and provides the peace-of-mind you need whatever the application.
Retraining technical and operational people can be a time-consuming business. The operational controls and mechanical design of the DVW-2000P are familiar to operators and engineers worldwide, keeping training costs to an absolute minimum.
