Create an end-to-end MPEG environment with

Sony MSW-2000 Series MPEG IMX Studio Editing VTRs

As the broadcasting industry has entered a digital networked environment, users have become aware of the significant benefits of consistent MPEG compression throughout the entire production process. MPEG-2 – the selected standard for DTV distribution thanks to its quality, cost-effectiveness, and efficiency in transmission – has naturally become a strategic choice for use in a variety of production and postproduction applications.

Sony’s response to this is the MSW-2000 Series of MPEG IMX™ VTRs, operating on MPEG-2 4:2:2 [email protected] at

30/40/50 Mb/s, I-frame only compression. This family of VTRs offers four studio recorders and two players, each optimized for environments where picture quality and operability are of prime concern.

A distinct advantage of these VTRs is their powerful legacy playback capability of Sony standard-definition

1/2-inch tape formats*. This not only protects vast quantities of archive material, but also allows continued use of those all-important acquisition tools, for a smooth migration into an open MPEG environment.

■ ■ Shot-Mark Handling

These VTRs can scan tapes with shot marks and automatically detect their positions.

After scanning, a list of all the marks can be displayed on a monitor, allowing easy cueing to any mark.

■ ■ UMID (Metadata) Handling

In the MSW-2000 Series, special care has been given to metadata handling in order to increase production efficiency and to provide utmost convenience in media asset management systems and material distribution systems. In general, metadata consists of user-defined data indicating when, where, or by whom the material was created, and a variety of other data describing the material content.

Among such metadata, UMID, as standardized in SMPTE 330M, is a globally unique identifier used for the identification of picture/audio material and data. UMID is automatically generated within compatible equipment such as VTRs and camcorders during each recording.

MSW-2000 Series VTRs provide the facility to automatically generate and record UMID on tape while dubbing and editing. This recorded

UMID is used in subsequent processes from editing and archiving and on to distribution, bringing efficiency throughout the entire program production process.

■ ■ Easy maintenance

Most of the circuitry of MPEG IMX 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 an auto adjustment function used in BETACAM SX VTRs. This helps to drastically reduce the frequency of periodic scanner replacement.

■ ■ Easy Integration into Flexicart™ and LMS Systems

These MPEG IMX studio VTRs can be used in

Flexicart and LMS systems. Integration is quick and easy.

The Sony e-VTR is a network-capable MPEG IMX VTR, which enables 1/2-inch tape-based content to be integrated into common Ethernet network environments. The Sony e-VTR lineup consists of the MSW-M2000E recorder and MSW-M2100E player, which offer Ethernet capability as standard, and four other MSW-2000 models, which offer this with an optional e-VTR board (BKMW-E3000).

The e-VTR allows video and audio files to be sent and received across a standard network, enabling flexible material exchange all over the world. Many other network features, including remote monitoring and the use of

Proxy Data derived from tape or live sources (e-to-e) are also available with the e-VTR.

The file format used for network transfer is MXF (Material eXchange Format), an approved SMPTE standard

(SMPTE 337M) for the interchange of audio-visual material and associated metadata between compatible production equipment.

The e-VTR provides the following features:

■ ■ Network File Transfer of All

Sony 1/2-inch SD Assets

The e-VTR can convert material recorded on any playback-compatible 1/2-inch tape format to the MXF (asynchronous) file-based format, for exchange of tape material across an Ethernet network environment. This allows MPEG IMX, Digital Betacam,

Betacam SX, Betacam SP, and Betacam materials* to be easily sent and received as data files through the network.

The e-VTR compensates for the different bit rates of the tape format and network bandwidth by intelligently controlling the tape playback and using a buffer memory to output the data according to the available network bandwidth.

MXF files can be transferred while playing back the tape, and also during recording.

The file transfer can be performed between two e-VTRs, or between an e-VTR and other

MXF-compatible devices such as the Sony

XDCAM series of products.

This network capability makes it possible to send footage from the field to the studio immediately after the shoot, or to easily share material among production staff at multiple locations. This removes the delays associated with the physical delivery of tapes, and reduces the use of costly satellite transmissions.

*Playback-compatible formats vary by product.

■ ■ Easy File Transfer Operation

The e-VTR allows file transfers to be easily accomplished through two types of operation:

PC-based Operation

File transfer can be performed via a simple drag-and-drop operation using the supplied e-VTR Manager software running on a compatible Windows PC. The intuitive GUI allows operators to perform the file transfer while browsing a low data-rate stream of the material on the PC to determine the in/out points of the transfer segment. This method is particularly convenient when e-VTRs are installed at a different or remote location.

VTR Front-Panel Operation

Another convenient way of transferring material is to set the in/out points from the e-VTR’s front panel during tape playback, and then send the designated material segments on the fly. This is similar to twomachine editing, and does not require the use of a PC. Operators can view a fullresolution image on a standard video monitor, which enables them to make a precise decision on which material to transfer.

■ ■ e-Monitor Function

By connecting a PC to the e-VTR network, operators can browse a low data-rate stream of any tape material loaded in any e-VTR residing on the network. By running the supplied e-VTR Manager software on the PC, tape transport controls such as

PLAY, REW, and FF are provided. This unique feature allows operators to visually check the material content first, and then send it across the network – saving time and keeping network traffic to a minimum.

■ ■ Generation of Low-resolution

Proxy Data

Another effective way of viewing material stored in a networked e-VTR is “Proxy

Data browsing.” Proxy Data is a lowresolution audio/video stream copy of the tape material, available from the e-VTR’s

Ethernet connector. Using MPEG-4 compression, Proxy Data is provided at a low bit rate of 2.0 Mb/s (1.5 Mb/s for video and 0.5 Mb/s for A-law compressed audio). Proxy Data can be sent across any standard network from an e-VTR to a PC’s hard disk drive, and replayed locally on the supplied e-VTR Manager software.

Operators can use the Proxy Data for many different purposes: as material to show for urgent client approval; as ‘work material’ for off-line editing; or as catalog pictures in an archive management system. Furthermore, the Proxy Data can be used on-air for emergency breaking news, when only low-bandwidth transmission paths are available.

The availability of Proxy Data frees the e-VTR from being constantly accessed by users wishing to browse material. Once the Proxy Data is copied to a PC, it can easily be sent to other production staff or uploaded to a specific contents server for access by multiple operators.

■ ■ Remote Monitoring of e-VTR using a Standard Web Browser

The e-VTR allows a variety of key maintenance information to be displayed on standard web browsers such as

Microsoft Internet Explorer and Netscape

Navigator. This includes “Hours Meter” information, as well as logs on errors, warnings, and channel condition.

This capability allows operators to remotely monitor the status of multiple e-VTRs from a single PC, for proactive and efficient maintenance operations.

The e-VTR also supports the industrystandard SNMP protocol, allowing further advanced remote monitoring using the

Sony MMStation™ Remote Monitoring software.

■ ■ Metadata Transfer

The e-VTR can send metadata together with AV streams by wrapping them into an MXF file. Metadata originally recorded on tape loaded or metadata stored on an external data server can be wrapped into the output of MXF file. The use of an external data server allows operators to transfer much larger-sized metadata along with the AV material over a network.
