Digital Betacam Recorder DVW-2000 Series DVW-M2000 DVW-M2000P DVW-2000 DVW-2000P DVW-M2000 DVW-2000 A New Plateau of Digital Betacam Studio Recorders Delivering Proven Picture Quality and Reliability Together With Added Flexibility and Scalability Since the introduction of the Digital Betacam format in 1993, Digital Betacam products have been widely accepted by a number of customers such as video production houses and broadcasters around the world. Its outstanding picture quality, multi-generation capabilities, and proven reliability have made the Digital Betacam format a standard for high-end video production applications. One decade after its launch, Sony has further evolved its range of Digital Betacam products by enhancing their flexibility, scalability, and operability - the result is the new DVW-M2000 and DVW-2000 Studio Recorders. These recorders inherit all the advantages of previous models, DVW-A500, such as superb picture quality and outstanding video performance. What's more, the DVW-M2000 VTR also provides powerful playback capability for all Sony 1/2-inch standard-definition format tapes*, allowing for continuous use of important archive materials and acquisition tools. Furthermore, a plug-in HD upconversion option allows these VTRs to output HD signals of 1080/59.94i or 720/59.94P (DVW-M2000/2000), or 1080/50i (DVW-M2000P/2000P). This is possible not only from Digital Betacam playback, but also from the playback signals of other compatible formats** such as the BetacamTM and MPEG IMXTM formats, providing a very smooth migration to future HD operations. Further advancements such as metadata handling capability, flexible audio operation, and a compact body design are all incorporated in these VTRs to increase their operational convenience. The new DVW-2000 Series of Digital Betacam VTRs will continue to offer top-quality SD recording, while allowing use of SD archives and bridging the way to future HD operations. *The DVW-2000 model records and plays back Digital Betacam tapes only. **Upconversion from SD formats other than Digital Betacam is possible only on the DVW-M2000 model. In this brochure, "DVW-M2000" and "DVW-2000" refer to both NTSC and PAL models. 2 MAIN FEATURES DVW-2000 Series VTRs Line-up Model Name Record Playback DVW-M2000/M2000P DVW-2000/2000P Outstanding Picture Quality of the Digital Betacam Format DVW-2000 Series VTRs use component digital recording, which provides superb picture quality, multi-generation capability, and editing performance. The use of a very mild compression ratio produces picture quality that is equivalent to baseband signals. Powerful Legacy Playback Capability (DVW-M2000) Optional HD Upconversion Capability* One of the distinct advantages of the new DVW-2000 Series Recorders is the optional HD upconversion capability, providing 1080/59.94i or 720/59.94P (DVW-M2000/2000), or 1080/50i (DVW-M2000P/2000P) HD outputs. Furthermore, the DVW-M2000 VTR can output these HD signals when playing back any of its playback-compatible formats. This option allows smooth migration to today's and future HDTV operations. *Requires the optional BKMW-104 board. The DVW-M2000 VTR provides the powerful capability to playback all Sony 1/2-inch SD formats including Digital Betacam, MPEG IMX, Betacam SX, Betacam SP, and Betacam formats, allowing users to continue to utilize archive material. Furthermore, this allows a flexible choice of acquisition tools, ranging from analog Betacam and Betacam SX to MPEG IMX formats. This VTR can also be used as a multi-format feeder in the editing suite, minimizing the amount of equipment needed. 3 MAIN FEATURES Compact Body Design and Low Power Consumption All VTRs in the DVW-2000 Series feature a compact 4U design* and weigh only 23 kg (50 lb 11 oz) - 12 kg (approx. 26 lb) less than the previous model, the DVW-A500 VTR - while incorporating additional functionalities. They also achieve low power consumption of 200 W (DVW-2000)/220 W (DVW-M2000) which is much lower than that of the DVW-A500 VTR. *427 x 174 x 544 mm (16 7/8 x 6 7/8 x 21 1/2 inches) DVW-A500 DVW-2000 Series Long Recording Time The DVW-2000 Series VTR's long recording and playback times allow recordings of up to 124 minutes on a large cassette and up to 40 minutes on a small cassette. Versatile Interface The DVW-2000 Series VTRs come equipped with a wide array of interfaces as standard. These include SDI I/O, analog component I/O, digital and analog audio I/O, and time code I/O. Analog composite I/O and a 50-pin parallel remote interface are also included as standard. By adding the optional BKMW-104 board, HD-SDI output is available. This allows DVW-2000 Series VTRs to be easily integrated into a variety of systems. High-quality Digital Audio DVW-2000 Series VTRs provide four-channels of independently editable, 20-bit digital audio. DVW-M2000 Front Panel 4 COMPREHENSIVE EDITING FEATURES Frame-accurate Insert/Assemble Editing DVW-2000 Series VTRs enable insert and assemble editing with ±0 frame accuracy. This allows precise editing on DVW tapes in machine-to-machine or A/B-roll configurations. Pre-read Editing Capability These VTRs are equipped with advanced playback heads to enable pre-read editing. This provides single-VTR titling, audio mix/swap, and voice over with no delay between video and audio. In addition, A/B-roll editing with two VTRs is available. Digital Audio Jog Sound These VTRs provide complete reproduction of four channels of digital audio in Jog mode during normal playback speed, whether forward or reverse. This feature is helpful for quickly and precisely establishing an editing point while monitoring the digital audio signals, which remain in absolute sync with the pictures. High-speed Picture Search DVW-2000 Series VTRs provide a high-speed picture search capability: * Digital Betacam tape: ±50 times (in color) * MPEG IMX tape: ±78 times (in color) * Betacam SX tape: ±78 times (in color) * Betacam SP/Betacam tape: ±35 times (NTSC)/ ±42 times (PAL) (up to ±10 times in color) Variable Speed Playback DVW-2000 Series VTRs provide variable speed playback, from -1 to 3 times (in Digital Betacam/MPEG IMX/Betacam SP/ Betacam format) or from -1 to 2 times (Betacam SX format) normal speed. Dynamic Motion Control (DMC) Functionality Equipped with Dynamic Motion Control functionality, these VTRs provide programmable slow-motion playback. This can be controlled via the control panel of the VTR or from an external controller such as a Sony BVE Series Editor or DTR-3000 Slow Motion Controller. DVW-M2000 Rear Panel 5 EASY OPERATION Easy Setup Using "Memory Stick"TM Media Equipped with a Memory Stick slot inside their front panels, the DVW-2000 VTRs provide Memory Stick functionality, which allows setup files to be saved on and recalled from a Memory Stick media. These files can later be copied onto another DVW-2000 Series VTR, enabling quick and consistent setup of multiple VTRs. "Memory Stick" Slot Metadata Functionalities DVW-2000 Series VTRs can handle various kinds of metadata, which can be used in subsequent production processes to drastically increase productivity: * Shot Mark handling capability, for quick cue-up to user-defined shot points * UMID capability to automatically generate and record UMID - the globally unique material identifier used for the identification of picture/audio material (standardized in SMPTE330M) * Built-in Tele-FileTM module to enable cassette content information to be written to or read from a Tele-File label (Optional: MLB-1M-100) Easy Maintenance Most of the circuitry of DVW-2000 Series VTRs is arranged on plug-in boards to allow quick and easy maintenance. The drum assembly has been designed for simple, low-cost maintenance by adopting the upper drum mechanism and auto adjustment function used in Sony MPEG IMX and Betacam SX VTRs. This helps to drastically reduce the frequency of periodic scanner replacement as compared to previous Digital Betacam models. Another advanced tool for easy maintenance is the optional BZNW-1000 ISRTM Proxy Software. This runs on a standard PC, and enables remote maintenance and monitoring of the DVW-2000 Series VTR over an Ethernet network*. *To connect DVW-2000 Series VTRs to a network, an RS-232C/Ethernet hub is required. For recommended models, please contact the nearest Sony office.
