DVW-2000 Series
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.
DVW-2000 Series VTRs Line-up
Model Name
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
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.
Compact Body Design and Low Power
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
*427 x 174 x 544 mm (16 7/8 x 6 7/8 x 21 1/2 inches)
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
Frame-accurate Insert/Assemble
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)
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
Easy Setup Using "Memory Stick"TM
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
* 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
* 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.
