1-1 Features

The MSW-A2000/A2000P/M2000/M2000P/2000 is a digital videocassette recorder based on the MPEG

IMX format.

This 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 or analog Betacam format a)

.

Furthermore, the MSW-M2000/M2000P can also playback tapes recorded in digital Betacam format.

a) The MSW-2000 does not support analog Betacam format.

High-performance heads and compatibility playback function

The newly developed high-performance heads and dynamic tracking (DT) technology provide highdensity recording and playback in narrow tracks with 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.)

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-precision digital signal processing and range of interfaces

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 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

Control (CTL) track Time code track a) Supplemental Automatic Tracking signal

Chapter 1 Overview

1-1

1-1 Features

High image quality MPEG-2 intraframe encoding at 50 Mbps.

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.

Basic operation buttons and jog/shuttle dial

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.

Time data display

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

1-2

Chapter 1 Overview

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 functions

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.

Remote control function

This unit can be controlled from an external remote controller or editor through an interface complying with RS-422A (serial 9-pin). Since two remote control connectors are provided, you can also control a number of VTRs simultaneously.

Additionally, a parallel (50-pin) interface is also fitted as standard, supporting easy external control through the parallel interface.

Wide range of editing functions

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.

Rack mounting

Using the optional RMM-131 Rack Mount Adaptor, you can mount the unit in a standard EIA 19-inch rack.

For details of rack mounting, refer to the Installation

Manual.

DMC editing

This allows automatic editing with a varying playback speed memorized beforehand for an edit segment.

Split editing

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.

Adjusting the audio recording levels

When carrying out audio recording at a reference level

Leave the REC controls pressed in. The audio signals will be recorded at a preset reference level (a reference

0 dB indication for an input of +4 dBm).

Manually adjusting the recording levels

For each channel, press to protrude the REC control in the upper control panel, and adjust so that the audio level indication is 0 dB for an average volume. Carry out the adjustment in E-E mode.

For details of selecting the E-E mode, see the description of the REC button in the tape transport control section (page

2-11) and the PB/EE setting in function menu HOME page

(page 8-3).

To change the display range of the audio level indications

Press the DISPLAY FULL/FINE button (see page 2-

4).

To use the emphasis function

To add emphasis to the analog input audio signal or analog playback audio signal, set the EMPHSS to ON

(see page 8-6).

When the signal to which emphasis has been applied is played back, it is automatically subjected to deemphasis processing.

Using the emphasis-deemphasis processing enables the dynamic range to be improved by reducing highfrequency noise.

4-1-2 Recording Time Code and

User Bit Values

There are three ways of recording time code, as follows:

• Setting an initial value, then recording the output of the internal time code generator

• Recording the output of the internal time code generator synchronized to an external time code generator

• Recording the output of an external time code without modification

To monitor the simultaneous playback of the recorded video and audio signals

Set the CONFI to ENABLE (see page 8-3) to light the

CONFI indicator. It is now possible to simultaneously monitor the video and audio signals being recorded.

To set an initial value then record the time code

If necessary, change the settings in function menu page

To synchronize the internal time code generator to an external signal

Use this method to synchronize the time code generators of a number of VTRs, or to record the playback time code signal from an external VTR without deterioration of the signal waveform.

In this case the RUN and DF settings are ignored.

You can synchronize the internal time code generator to either of the following external time codes.

• The time code output (LTC) of an external time code generator or external VTR connected to the TIME

CODE IN connector of the unit

• The time code (VITC) present in a video signal input to the unit

• The time code (SMPTE RP188) present in an SDI signal input to the unit

• The time code present in an SDTI-CP signal input to the unit

To synchronize the internal time code generator to an external signal, use the following procedure.

• When synchronizing to an external time code output (LTC):

Connect the time code output of the external time code generator or external VTR to the TIME

CODE IN connector.

• When synchronizing to the time code (VITC) in an input video signal:

With the VID.IN in function menu HOME page, select an input video signal containing VITC.

• When synchronizing to the time code (SMPTE

RP188) in an SDI signal:

With the VID.IN in function menu HOME page, select SDI.

• When synchronizing to the time code in an SDTI-

CP signal:

With the VID.IN in function menu HOME page, select SDTI.

Perform the following settings in function menu page 1.

• When synchronizing to an external time code output (LTC) or the time code (VITC) in an input video signal:

TCG (F1): EXT

TCG (F2): REGEN

VITC: ON (when recording VITC)

TCR: LTC or VITC according as you are synchronizing to LTC or VITC (If set to

AUTO, LTC is used.)

• When synchronizing to the time code (SMPTE

RP188) in an SDI signal:

TCG (F1): RP188

TCG (F2), VITC, TCR: Any setting

• When synchronizing to the time code in an SDTI-

CP signal:

TCG (F1): CP-LTC

TCG (F2), VITC, TCR: Any setting

Note

When the TCG (F1) is set to RP188 or CP-LTC, when settings of the TCG (F1) and VID.IN

conflict with each other, or when the input signal selected with the VID.IN is not present, the

TCG (F1) setting display flashes.

This starts the internal time code generator running in synchronization with the external time code generator.

Once the internal time code generator is synchronized with the external time code generator, even if the external time code generator connection is removed, the internal time code generator continues to run.

4-2-3 Dynamic Motion Control (DMC) Playback

Overview

DMC playback allows you to vary the playback speed for a certain section of a tape, in variable speed mode

(from –1 to +3 times normal speed for digital Betacam playback, from –1 to +3 times normal speed for MPEG

IMX playback, from –1 to +2 times normal speed for

Betacam SX playback, or from –1 to +3 times normal speed for analog Betacam playback), and store the varying speed in memory for later playback at the same varying speed.

For example, during a live broadcast of a sporting event you can set the start and end points of highlights while recording, and then provide immediate DMC playback of those highlights.

During DMC playback the tape moves as shown in the following figure.

5-1 Automatic Editing

This section describes how to carry out automatic editing with this unit and another VTR connected to the REMOTE1-IN(9P) connector.

Sequence of editing operations

The following flowchart outlines the sequence of operations in automatic editing with two VTRs.

Selecting the editing mode (page 5-3)

5-1-1 Overview

Editing mode

Assemble editing

This is the editing mode in which successive portions of the edited result are recorded on the end of the already completed section.

The CTL signal, video signal, audio signal, and time code are all newly recorded on the tape.

Insert editing

In this mode, new material is recorded at an intermediate point of an existing recording.

The CTL signal is not recorded. The video signal, audio signal, and time code signal can all be independently recorded.

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.

Using setup menu item 610, it is also possible to record time code according to the settings in the function menu.

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.

Split editing requires a total of eight edit points: four video edit points (player IN and OUT and recorder IN and OUT) and four audio edit points (player audio IN 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 are already set. The other edit points (recorder audio

OUT point, and player audio IN and video OUT points) are set automatically.

Note that, regardless of whether it was set manually or automatically, any edit point can be deleted or corrected later.

7

Press the STOP button to stop the recorder playback.

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 8-8).

Chapter 5 Editing

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.

1

Set PB/EE in function menu HOME page to PB.

2

Set the PREREAD in function menu page 4 to ON.

3

Make the necessary connections for the preread editing.

4

After selecting the desired insert editing mode, carry out the preread editing.

5

When the preread editing is completed, remove the connections.

6

Set the PREREAD to OFF.

7

Check that no loop connection remains.

Note

It is not possible to carry out a preread editing when

SDTI-CP input/output signal is selected.

6-1 Overview

This unit can record shot marks or use shot marks recorded in MPEG IMX or Betacam SX format.

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

Shot mark type Writing on a camcorder, etc.

Recording start mark Automatically written at the start of recording.

Shot mark 1 and shot mark 2

Post mark

Written by a manual shot mark operation during recording or editing.

Not written

(Written only on this unit) post marks, treating them as varieties of shot marks.

Writing on this unit

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.

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.

Written by a button operation during playback, while stopped, during a search, or during recording (crash recording or assemble editing).

Modifying and erasing on this unit

Possible

First, the shot mark functions of this unit are described in simple terms.

Reading shot marks

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Memory label

Data management in clip units

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

Newly developed IC

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 library management with handy reader/writer

An optional handy reader/writer (supporting Memory

Stick) is available to facilitate data library management.

Select the signals to be regenerated when the time code generator is in the regeneration mode (i.e., when the function menu item TCG (F2) is set to

REGEN).

TC&UB :

Both the time code and user bit signals are regenerated.

TC:

Only the time code signal is regenerated.

UB:

Only the user bit signal is regenerated.

Select the signal output from the TIME CODE OUT connector during normal (

×1) speed playback in the following cases:

• For tape playback when the function menu item TCG (F1) is set to INT and TCG

(F2) set to REGEN.

• For preroll or postroll playback during automatic editing with the tape.

TAPE:

During tape playback, the playback time code signal is output without regeneration. (The time code values do not correspond to the video output.)

REGEN :

The playback time code is output after regeneration.

AUTO:

Can be selected with MSW SY software version 4.0 and later.

The operation with the AUTO setting is as follows.

• The playback timecode (LTC) signal is output delayed, to coincide with the output video signal.

• Operation is independent of the internal timecode generator settings or editing state.

• The output video signal and LTC are only accurately synchronized for normal speed playback.

• If the edit preset is turned on or off, the delay changes, and therefore the timecode will be discontinuous.

10-1 Removing a Cassette When Tape Slack Occurs

Occurs Occurs

For details, refer to Section 1-17 in the Installation Manual.

If tape slack occurs in the unit, it is necessary to remove the upper lid and sound baffle. This job should always be entrusted to a technician who has undergone service training.

10-2 Head Cleaning

To clean the video heads and audio heads, always use the special-purpose Sony BCT-HD12CL cleaning cassette.

If you insert the cleaning cassette, it is automatically ejected after a head cleaning operation which lasts for

5 seconds.

Follow the instructions with the cleaning cassette carefully, as inappropriate use of the cleaning cassette can damage the heads.

Notes

• When carrying out head cleaning without using the automatic cleaning function, be sure to eject the cleaning cassette after use in order not to damage the heads.

• You cannot use the BCT-5CLN cleaning cassette.

10-4 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.

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.

10-5-2 Maintenance Timings

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
