HDCAM format
The HDCAM format uses the same 12.65-mm width
tape as the conventional Betacam series. It provides
high definition images, offering up to two hours of
recording. For video signal compression, prefiltration
and coefficient recording technologies are used.

Audio
High-precision digital signal processing
and range of interfaces
The digital signal processing uses HD 4:2:2
component video signals complying with SMPTE
292M, which are converted into parallel data and then
compressed into HDCAM format.
The audio signals are based on AES/EBU format, and
are subjected to digital signal processing without being
compressed.
The unit is equipped with a high definition to standard
definition (HD to SD) downward converter, and has
the following interfaces as standard equipment, for
ease of connection to different external devices.
• SD analog composite signal output
• SD analog component signal output
• Analog audio signal input/output (4 channels)
• HDSDI SMPTE 292M input/output (HD digital
video/audio, 4 channels)
• SDI SMPTE 259M output (component digital video/
audio, 4 channels)
• AES/EBU serial digital audio input/output (4
channels)
• SDTI SMPTE 305M input/output (HDCAM video/
audio data) (Option)
• Time code input/output
• CUE audio input/output
Video
High quality four-channel audio
Control (CTL) track
Time code track
a) Supplemental Automatic Tracking signal
High quality 20 bit/48 kHz AES/EBU digital audio is
supported. There are four digital audio input/output
channels, and four analog audio input/output channels.
High-performance heads and compatibility
functions
Recording and playback of SDTI
compressed data (optional)
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 HDCAM recording and
playback heads, the unit is equipped with Betacam SX
playback heads and analog Betacam DT heads, for
compatibility with existing recording formats. The
VTR automatically detects the recording format of
tapes when they are loaded, so that no menu settings
need to be made when changing formats.
This unit can be fitted with SDTI input/output
complying with SMPTE 305M, and can therefore be
used for transferring HDCAM data, audio data,
metadata, and so on to a VTR or nonlinear device via
an SDTI interface.
Multifunction control panel
While built in a compact 4U size, this unit has a front
panel which provides a wide range of functions while
maintaining existing operability.

Chapter 1
Overview
The HDW-2000/M2000/M2000P is a high-definition
(HD) digital videocassette recorder based on the
HDCAM 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.
In addition to HDCAM format recording and
playback, the HDW-M2000/M2000P can also play
back tapes recorded in the digital Betacam, MPEG
IMX, Betacam SX, and analog Betacam formats.
1-1 Features
Basic operation buttons and jog/shuttle
dial
Chapter 1 Overview
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.
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.
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. You can select
cut-in, fade-in, fade-out, or cross-fade.
Downward converter function
High quality variable speed playback and
digital jog sound function
In HDCAM format playback, the dedicated playback
DT heads allow smooth, noiseless playback. During
Betacam SX playback, noiseless playback is achieved
through unique multihead playback technology.
In slow motion operation, the digital jog sound
function provides the same ease of operation as for a
conventional analog VTR.
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.
1-2
Chapter 1 Overview
The unit has an HD-to-SD downward converter
function, and can output standard definition SDI,
analog component and analog composite signals even
while playing back an HDCAM format tape.
Upward converter function (HDW-M2000/
M2000P only)
The HDW-M2000/M2000P features a standard
definition to high definition (SD-to-HD) upward
converter as standard equipment. This allows highquality HD signals to be output even when playing
back tapes recorded in formats other than HDCAM.
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
Chapter 1 Overview
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.
Rack mounting
Using the optional RMM-131 Rack Mount Adaptor,
you can mount the unit in a standard EIA 19-inch rack.

Adjusting the audio recording levels
To use the emphasis function
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
–20 dB indication for an input of +4 dBm).
To add emphasis to the analog input audio signal or
analog playback audio signal, set the EMPHSS to ON
(see page 9-6).
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.
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.

Setting a user bit value
The user bit values recorded on the time code track
provide for eight hexadecimal digits, which can be
used to hold the date, time, or other information.
Use the following procedure.
4-1 Recording
• To synchronize to LTC data contained in the
HDSDI signal input to this unit:
TCG (F1): SDI
PR/RGN (F2): LTC
• To synchronize to VITC data contained in the
HDSDI signal input to this unit:
TCG (F1): SDI
PR/RGN (F2): VITC
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 (LTC and VITC) present in the
HDSDI signal input to the unit
Chapter 4
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.
Setting PR/RGN (F2) to PRESET when TCG (F1)
is set to EXT or SDI has the effect as setting PR/
RGN (F2) to LTC.
To synchronize the internal time code generator to an
external signal, use the following procedure.

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.
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
PR/RGN (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.

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 any edit point can be deleted or corrected

This refers to editing using as the player an external
device which cannot be controlled remotely through
the REMOTE1-IN(9P) connector. For example, you
can record a color bar signal from a signal generator in
the joints between the scenes of an already completed
tape.
Carrying out standalone editing

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 9-7).
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 F2 (OUTREF)(see page 9-7) in
function menu page 4 to REF, and set item 309 in the
extended setup menu to AUTO1 (see page 10-15) 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 F2 (PB/EE) in function menu HOME page to
PB.

Set the F6 (PREREAD)(see page 9-7) in function

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

Selecting the Instance Number generation
method when inheriting UMIDs
If you choose to inherit the UMID contained in input
signals, almost all of the information in the UMID is
copied without change, but the Instance Number
changes to a value which indicates that “this UMID is
a copy”. The new value can be generated from a 16-bit
pseudo-random number with the addition of the
number of copies (1 byte), or it can be generated from
a 24-bit pseudo-random number. Select the method
used to generate the Instance Number by using setup
menu item 654 UMID GENERATE METHOD.

For details, refer to Section 1-17 in the Installation Manual.
11-2 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
10 seconds.
Follow the instructions with the cleaning cassette
carefully, as inappropriate use of the cleaning cassette
can damage the heads.
Note
You cannot use the BCT-5CLN cleaning cassette.

11-4 Moisture Condensation
Chapter 11 Maintenance and Inspection
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 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.
ALARM indicator
If moisture condensation occurs, “ERR-10”
appears in time data display area 1.

11-5-2 Maintenance Timings
Chapter 11 Maintenance and Inspection
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
Maintenance Manual Volume 1.
