MPEG IMX format
The MPEG IMX format uses the same 12.65-mm
width tape as the conventional Betacam series. This
economical format uses 50 Mbps high image quality
MPEG-2 compression, and offers up to three hours of
recording.
The video signal compression, as in the Betacam SX
format, uses MPEG-2, and compressed data can be
passed directly without loss of quality, not only to
VTRs, but also to other devices with MPEG support,
such as nonlinear editors or servers. There is thus high
compatibility with the next generation of digital
television formats supporting MPEG-2.
The audio tracks allow up to eight channels to be
recorded, and this also provides future extensibility for
multichannel, multilingual broadcasting, data
broadcasting, and so on.

high reliability. In addition to the MPEG IMX
recording and playback heads, this unit is also
equipped with Betacam SX format playback heads,
digital Betacam playback heads, and analog Betacam
DT heads, to provide compatibility playback functions,
and allowing a wide variety of recorded resources to
be used effectively.
(Note that the compatibility playback functions differ
depending on the models covered by this manual.)

Chapter 1 Overview
Chapter 1
Overview
The MSW-2000-series models are digital videocassette
recorders based on the MPEG IMX format.
Each unit uses large scale integrated circuits for signal
processing, and has a simple internal construction,
allowing it to provide functionality at least equivalent
to a conventional VTR in a compact (4U size),
lightweight, and low power consumption design.
It not only offers recording and playback in MPEG
IMX format, but can also play back tapes recorded in
Betacam SX format, analog Betacam format or Digital
Betacam format.
1-1 Features
Chapter 1
Overview
High-precision digital signal processing
and range of interfaces
High image quality MPEG-2 intraframe
encoding at 50 Mbps
The MPEG IMX VTR digital video signal processing
uses 4:2:2 component video signals complying with
ITU-R Rec 601/SMPTE 259M, which are compressed
with ISO/IEC 13818-2000 MPEG-2 compression.
While supporting a wide range of input and output
signals, all of the VTR internal processing is digital,
providing high stability and reliability.
The audio signals, similarly, are based on AES/EBU
format, and are subjected to digital signal processing
while still uncompressed.
The video signal compression uses MPEG-2
intraframe encoding conforming to 4:2:2 Profile @
Main Level, with a 1:3.3 compression ratio; the data is
then recorded with a bit rate of 50 Mbps. With the
highly efficient MPEG-2 compression, the image
quality is high enough to withstand a range of editing
and dubbing operations.
The recorded MPEG-2 data can be passed directly to
other nonlinear systems, allowing optimum editing
with no loss of image quality.
The following interfaces are standard equipment, for
ease of connection to different external devices.
• Analog composite signal input/output
• Analog component signal input/output
• Analog audio signal input/output (4 channels)
• Serial Digital Interface SMPTE 259M input/output
(component digital video/audio, 8 channels)
• AES/EBU serial digital audio input/output (8
channels)
• SDTI-CP SMPTE 326M input/output (MPEG video/
audio data)
• Time code input/output
Network interface function (MSW-M2000E/
M2000EP only)
The MSW-M2000E/M2000EP is equipped with an
Etherneta) connector, enabling the VTR to be added to
a 10/100/1000Base-T network to transfer video, audio,
and metadata as MXF files. You can use MXF data
received over the network to record video, audio, and
metadata onto cassettes. MXF (Material Exchange
Format) is a file format that stores video, audio, and
metadata in a single package. It enables
communication between network devices such as
VTRs and servers.

Chapter 1 Overview
High quality eight-channel audio
High quality 16 bit/48 kHz digital audio is supported.
There are eight digital audio input/output channels, and
four analog audio input/output channels.
To support even higher quality recording and
playback, there is a four-channel mode using 24 bit/48
kHz encoding. Thus this unit is eminently suitable not
only for multichannel applications, but also for high
quality audio editing.
Recording and playback of SDTI
compressed data
This unit is fitted with SDTI-CP input/output
complying with SMPTE 326M, and can therefore be
used for transferring MPEG-2 data, audio data,
metadata, and so on to a VTR or nonlinear device.
Newly developed multifunction control
panel
While a compact 4U size, this unit has a front panel
which provides a wide range of functions while
maintaining existing operability.
Basic operation buttons and jog/shuttle
dial
Wide range of editing functions
Time data display
DMC editing
This can be selected to display a CTL counter value,
time code value, or time code user bits. It can also
display edit points and edit durations.
This allows automatic editing with a varying playback
speed memorized beforehand for an edit segment.
Split editing
Menu-based control interface
The time data/menu display shows not only various
values and settings, but also the pages of a menu
system for commonly used functions. You can use the
function keys and MULTI CONTROL knob to easily
change settings.
Other operation settings, including interfacing with
external devices, can be set from the control panel by
the same type of setup menu system as on a
conventional VTR.
Eight-channel audio level meters
The unit has independent audio level meters and
recording/playback level controls for all eight
channels. The level meters are on the control panel, so
that when the panel is used remotely from the main
unit it is still easy to check or adjust the audio levels.
In insert editing, this allows editing with the audio IN
and OUT points to be displaced from the video edit
points.
Preread editing
This allows you to play back prerecorded video and
audio material, edit it by applying effects with an
external device, and then rerecord in real time on the
same tape.
Cross-fade editing
In audio editing, to avoid unnatural effects at edit
points, you can fade the audio track. The setting allows
you to select fade-in, fade-out, or cut-in.
Tele-File functions
High quality variable speed playback and
digital jog sound function
In Digital Betacam or MPEG IMX format playback,
the dedicated playback DT heads allow smooth,
noiseless playback from –1 to +3 times normal speed.
In analog Betacam compatible playback also, similar
dedicated DT heads allow noiseless playback from –1
to +3 times normal speed, and in Betacam SX format
compatible playback, special multi-head playback
technology allows noiseless playback from –1 to +2
times normal speed.
In slow motion operation, the digital jog sound
function provides the same ease of operation as a
conventional analog VTR.
Tele-File enables data writing/reading between
cassettes with memory labels and VTRs. It increases
the efficiency of operations such as recording,
playback and editing, and source data management.
Chapter 1
Overview
1-3
Overview
By combining two units, you can carry out both
assemble editing and insert editing automatically. All
of the necessary editing functions are provided to set
and amend edit points, to preview and review results of
editing, and so on.
Chapter 1
The basic buttons and jog/shuttle dial for VTR and
editing operations are provided in the conventional
VTR layout, ensuring continuity with conventional
operating panels.
1-1 Features
Remote control function
Chapter 1
Overview
This unit can be controlled from an external remote
controller or editor through an interface complying

5-1 Automatic Editing
5-1-1 Overview
Editing mode
You can carry out DMC editing in both editing modes.
In insert editing, split editing is also possible.
Using CTL to interpolate time code values
When you are using time code values as edit point
addresses, the time code must be recorded on the tape
in correct time sequence (i.e. the sections must be in
strictly ascending time order).
If the time code values are all in correct time sequence,
then if there are any discontinuities in the time code,
the unit allows them to be interpolated using the CTL
counter.
Recording time code
For automatic editing, regardless of the TCG (F1) and
TCG (F2) settings, time code is recorded continuously
from the previous time code recorded on the tape.
The following flowchart outlines the sequence of
operations in automatic editing with two VTRs.

Previewing the edit segments (page 5-7)
Amending edit points as necessary (page 5-6)
Carrying out automatic editing (page 5-8)
Checking the editing results as necessary (page 5-9)
Using an editing control unit
When controlling this unit with an editing control unit,
set an edit delay on the editing control unit so that cut
in and cut out instructions are output 5 frames before
the actual edit point.
Notes on video output to the monitor
In E-E mode, the video output of the unit is delayed by
the time for video circuit processing with respect to the
input video signal (8H).
Unlike the playback operations described in Chapter 4,
for playback to be carried out in editing mode with
both the player and recorder specified, you can use
setup menu item 701 to delay the SYNC phase,
delaying it by 8H.
Using setup menu item 610, it is also possible to record time
code according to the settings in the function menu.

and OUT and recorder audio IN and OUT). However,
as soon as you set five points, the system automatically
calculates and sets the remaining three points.
Specifically, once you have set three of the four video
edit points and two audio edit points, the remaining
three edit points are set automatically, regardless of
whether these points are for the recorder or player.
In the figure below, the edit points shown within boxes

5-3-5 Preread Editing
Video and digital audio signals already recorded on the
tape can be used as an edit source for insert editing.
This type of editing is called “preread editing”, as this
unit uses the preread heads to read the signals in
advance from the tape.
The signals read out can be send to a mixer for mixing,
and can be recorded either on the original channels or
on other digital audio channels.
For preread editing, set the PREREAD to ON (see
page 11-8).
Press the RECORDER button, turning it on.
Use the search dial in jog or shuttle mode to find
the editing start point (the recorder IN point), and
stop the tape just before this point.

Notes
• In preread editing, if an input video signal is used as
the reference signal for the output video signal, this
forms a feedback loop. To prevent the occurrence of
feedback, set the OUTREF in function menu page 4
to REF, and set item 309 in the extended setup menu
to AUTO 1 so as to use an external reference signal.
• When the preread mode is selected, to prevent
feedback due to the loop connection, whatever the
editing mode of this unit, no E-E video output is
available.
When the PREREAD is set to OFF after preread
editing, however, if the loop connection remains and
an E-E signal is output, feedback will occur.
To prevent this, select PB mode for the video and
digital audio channels in all the modes before the
preread editing, as follows.
Set PB/EE in function menu HOME page to PB.

6-1 Overview
Shot marks are indications at desired points on a tape
which enable faster cueing.
Types of shot mark
This unit supports the following three types of shot
mark. This chapter describes recording start marks and
post marks, treating them as varieties of shot marks.
Writing on a camcorder,
etc.
Recording start mark Automatically written at the
start of recording.
Writing on this unit
Shot mark 1 and
shot mark 2
Written by a manual shot
mark operation during
recording or editing.
Written by a button operation during crash
recording or assemble editing. A menu setting
determines which of three types of mark is
written: shot mark 1, shot mark 2, or post mark.
Post mark
Not written
(Written only on this unit)
Written by a button operation during playback,
while stopped, during a search, or during
recording (crash recording or assemble editing).
Shot mark type
Written or not according to a separate menu
setting for each recording mode (crash recording,
assemble editing, insert editing).
For each mode for which the setting is “ON”, the
mark is written automatically at the start of
recording.
First, the shot mark functions of this unit are described
in simple terms.
This unit reads in shot marks written on a tape and
stores them in memory. (To a maximum of 200)
Once this data is stored in this unit, it is preserved even
when the power is turned off.
Writing and erasing shot marks
For recording start marks, a menu setting determines
whether or not they are written each time recording
starts. Shot mark 1, shot mark 2, and post mark types
can be written at any point on a tape, and also erased
or rewritten.
Shot mark list operations
On the monitor, you can display a list of the shot
marks read in by this unit, select required shot marks,
delete shot marks, and so on. You can also add a
memo mark (#) to a shot mark in the list.
During tape playback, you can add virtual shot marks
to the list. This is not written on the tape itself.
Cueing up to shot marks
By selecting a desired shot mark from the shot mark
list, you can cue up immediately to that position. By
means of a button operation, you can also cue up to the
shot marks adjacent to the current tape position (index
function).
Shot data display
When the tape includes shot data (camera, time, and
other information captured at the time of shooting),
you can read this in, and display the details on a
monitor. It is also possible to display the shot mark list
and shot data simultaneously.
Sorting shot marks by cassette
When the tape includes shot data, this unit recognizes
which cassette each shot mark comes from. You can
therefore sort the read-in shot marks by cassette in
time code order.

7-1 Overview of Tele-File Functions
Memory label
Newly developed IC
In Tele-File, data is managed in units called “clips.” A
clip consists of the following data items, whose
settings can be displayed and changed.
• Cue point
• Write protect
• Mark
• Recording start point
• IN point
• OUT point
• Take number
• Cut number
• Scene number
• Comment
Data library management with handy
reader/writer
An optional handy reader/writer (supporting Memory
Stick) is available to facilitate data library
management.
Chapter 7
The Tele-File system employs a newly developed
memory IC with the following features.
• Thin design: With a thickness of 0.5 mm, the IC can
be attached to cassettes as a memory label.
• Memory capacity: 1 KB (user area, rewritable)
• Data transfer speed: 100 kbps
• Security functions: Reading and writing
authorization can be controlled through multiple
passwords and permission settings.
Data management in clip units
Chapter 7 Tele-File
Tele-File is a non-contact data carrier system.
Tele-File increases the efficiency of data management
and operations such as recording, playback, and
editing by enabling information to be exchanged
between VTRs with data reading and writing functions
and cassettes with Tele-File labels.

14-4 Moisture Condensation
When the unit is suddenly moved from a cold to a
warm location, or used in a very humid place, moisture
from the air can condense on the head-drum. This is
called moisture condensation. If the tape is run in this
state, it can adhere to the drum. To prevent such a
condition from occurring, the unit is provided with a
moisture detecting function.
If moisture condenses on the head-drum while the unit
is in use, the ALARM indicator lights and “ERR-10”
is displayed in the time data display area 1.
Z
If this happens, the drum and capstan motors stop and
the cassette is automatically ejected. Then, the durm
starts to rotate again to dry its surface. In this state, the
unit is not operable. When the moisture has
evaporated, the error message disappears and the
ALARM indicator goes off.
If “ERR-10” appears and the ALARM indicator
lights immediately after powering the unit on
Leave the unit powered on and wait until the error
message disappears and the indicator goes off.
While the indicator is lit, you cannot insert a cassette.
When the indicator goes off and the error message
disappears, you can use the unit.
Chapter 14 Maintenance and Inspection
If you move the unit from a cold to a warm
location
Leave the unit powered off for about 10 minutes, in
order to give the unit time to detect moisture
condensation.

If moisture condensation occurs, “ERR-10”
appears in time data display area 1.

Use the following table as a timing guide for checking
and replacing components of the unit.
These intervals are not guaranteed lifetimes; the timing
for replacing components depends on the particular
conditions of use. In particular, depending on the
degree of dirt contamination and abrasion, pinch
rollers and cleaners may require replacement earlier
than suggested by this table.
Note that an arrow in the table means that the
component to be replaced is part of the assembly the
arrow points to, which must be replaced as a whole.
For information on severe conditions (frequent threading/
unthreading) or how to replace components, refer to the
