Makers

CineAlta

_ a name that proudly symbolizes the bond between cinematography and Digital high-definition imaging. It distinguishes a Sony family of products and systems that offer new levels of creativity in the production, postproduction, and exchange of motion pictures. It also brings together the quality of

24-frame cinematography with the real-time capabilities, efficiency, and flexibility of Digital high-definition technology. And it stimulates the convergence of Motion Picture Film and Digital high-definition production on a global basis.

CineAlta products, delivering cinema-quality pictures at selectable frame rates, are simplifying International Program Exchange by minimizing the need for standards conversion.

They are also opening up entirely new possibilities for international co-production.

Movie making has been liberated by the creative empowerment of the cinematographer. It is facilitated by real-time

HD image evaluation on-set, instant replay of full-color high-resolution digital “takes,” real-time image optimization while shooting, a 50-minute shooting load, and most importantly, by the significant cost-benefits associated with this digital medium.

CineAlta products provide a seamless bridge between 24-frame film originals and a final 24P digital master, giving each frame of film a one-to-one correspondence with progressive

HD frames. The CineAlta environment readily interfaces with the computer graphics world, liberating postproduction. And the final liberation is achieved through the direct color conversion of progressive 24P masters to film, and to a host of other international digital

HDTV and SDTV distribution formats.

HDCAM-SR VTRs – Solid

Today’s Environment

Today, content is distributed in diverse formats and via diverse channels such as D-Cinema, cell phones and international content syndication. In this environment, it is critical that the content owner produces and stores valuable content at the highest possible quality levels, in order to guard against multi-compression artifacts and to prolong content longevity. It is also important to store prime content on optimum media. Video tapes remain the most cost-effective, and extremely reliable, digital storage medium. The Sony HDCAM-SR™ VTR – at the pinnacle of the Sony digital HD VTR lineup – meets all of these vital criteria, and is the best possible choice for today and tomorrow, and a solution that is worth more than the investment itself.

Digital Cinema Innovation

The epoch-making launch of the Sony HDW-F900

CineAlta camcorder introduced a new, innovative way to produce movies using 24-frame-based video.

Today, a number of films are produced digitally using this method. Premium digital cinema cameras including Arriflex D20, Panavision Genesis™ and Sony

F35/F23 cameras all record on the HDCAM-SR portable VTR. 3D live action content such as features and concerts are also recorded onto HDCAM-SR recorders with 3D camera rigs based on Sony camera technology.

The combination of RGB imaging and the operational convenience of real-time recording and playback has empowered cinematographers and directors to create images that could not be achieved with traditional technologies.

SRW-5000

Choice for Today and Tomorrow

TV

Over 5000 units of HDCAM-SR VTRs are in use worldwide. Key factors in this widespread adoption are visually lossless compression (4:2:2) and

12-channel audio recording. Also, despite extremely high bit-rate HDCAM-SR recording, these decks are extremely robust, and as equally bullet-proof as other

Sony 1/2-inch VTRs such as the proven BETACAM

® and Digital BETACAM. In fact, a host of stations now go on-air directly from the HDCAM-SR deck. In nonlinear-based environments, the HDCAM-SR deck plays a vital role, enabling high-speed material transfer at twice normal speed between the deck and servers or nonlinear editing systems via a

Dual-link HD-SDI interface. Yet, transfer via the HD-SDI provides much higher levels of QoS than via normal computer networks, which are vulnerable to unpredictable network traffic problems.

Looking Ahead to the Future

For years, Sony has had a vision of providing a total

1080 50P/60P production tool set ranging from camera and switcher to VTR and display. With the latest remarkable developments in consumer display technology, the general public can now watch 1080

50P/60P progressive imagery in the living room. Due to limitations in aerial transmission bandwidth, it’s likely that 1080-interlaced and 720-progressive transmission standards will co-exist into the foreseeable future. With this in mind, Sony is giving on-going support to 1080 50P/60P-based production as the ideal production solution for premium content such as sports, concerts and documentaries.

For ODS (Other Digital Stuff: alternative content to feature movies) – and in particular the recently discussed large-venue screening issues including digital cinema – HDCAM-SR products offer key capabilities such as extreme image quality and

12-channel audio.

Last but not least, 4K digital projection has been making in-roads into premium theaters. In future, 4K content production will grow rapidly. However, right now, 4K Digital Intermediate is an engineering challenge for post-production facilities that are struggling to secure processing/network bandwidth/ storage space. HDCAM-SR VTRs provide the solution with outstanding capabilities such as 4K uncompressed data recording onto tape, and conversion of 4K image file recording to HD video recording. These capabilities serve to significantly lower the barriers to handling 4K image files.

Simply put, choosing HDCAM-SR VTRs means that the future is protected.

Building an Innovative Workflow with the

SRW-5800 Network Capability

The SRW-5800 provides a highly advanced network capability with the addition of the optional HKSR-5804 board*, introducing a new network-based workflow to the DI (Digital Intermediate) domain, along with higher levels of efficiency.

This capability comprises a variety of unique and powerful functions, such as DPX file conversion to and from the HDCAM-SR

HD video format, as well as 2K (2048 x 1556)/4K (4096 x 3112) uncompressed data recording. Giga-bit Ethernet is supported on the SRW-5800, allowing fast transfer of even the large files.

The SRW-5800 mounts a shared drive over a GbE network. In this case, no special driver software or application is required, and the major operating systems including Microsoft Windows

® ,

Linux ® and Macintosh ® are supported. Users can simply utilize a normal Internet browser for control.

DPX File Import/Export

The SRW-5800 in this configuration can create DPX files while playing back an HDCAM-SR tape, and can directly transfer these files to PCs, workstations or servers on the network. Conversely,

DPX files from a networked device can be recorded to the

SRW-5800 in HDCAM-SR video format. These capabilities eliminate the need for external video to data conversion interfaces.

4K/2K to HD Resizing

The SRW-5800 recorder allows 4K/2K files transferred from other devices to be resized to 1920 x 1080 and recorded in HDCAM-SR format.

4K/2K Uncompressed DPX Data Recording

The SRW-5800 can also record uncompressed 4K/2K DPX data as image data onto an HDCAM-SR tape. It can record DPX data of flexible image size on the tape, from HD to Maximum up to 4K full-aperture (4096 x 3112) size. These tapes are therefore a suitable interchange medium between DI facilities. While ingesting data files from the tapes users can monitor the 4K/2K images on an HD display thanks to the resizing function.

HDCAM-SR Technology

The HDCAM-SR format is based on cutting-edge technology. It is not a rehashed and repackaged technology solution developed in previous decades. The HDCAM-SR format has been designed to maximize the data-transfer rate without sacrificing any operational features. It’s a design you’d expect from a Sony 1/2” tape format, with all the useful playback and editing features common to existing

Sony tape formats. And although the SRW-5000/5500/5800 features and capabilities have seen great improvements, the physical size and the power consumption of the VTR remain modest enough to achieve easy portability. In order to meet the format’s mission-critical requirements, every aspect of magnetic tape-recording engineering and digital-signal processing technology has been carefully reassessed and integrated. Even with these great technological improvements, anticipated system operating costs are reasonable.

Creating Visually Lossless Images:

The MPEG-4 Studio Profile (SP)

Yet another industry first from Sony is an integrated video encoding/decoding chipset that conforms to MPEG-4 SP (Studio

Profile: ISO/IEC 14496-2:2001-1). The Studio Profile was created to specifically address the requirements of high-resolution image-production applications. It is free from GOP (Group Of

Pictures) structures, and is scalable in its pixel count (SDTV, HDTV,

Film-resolution data), bit depth (10- or 12-bit) and color resolution

(component or RGB). In order to achieve maximum compression efficiency, the HDCAM-SR format resorts to intra-frame compression for progressive images. Intra-field compression is used for interlaced images. Special attention has been paid to multi-generation dubbing performance and, in common with industry-standard Digital BETACAM VTRs, the SRW-5000/5500/5800 is capable of consistent dubbing without using a separate interface for a native stream. This is only possible thanks to the high performance of the MPEG-4 SP, which offers reproduction of visually lossless images.

More Data, Same Long Running Time:

The New Footprint

Each picture frame consists of 24 helical tracks (or 12 tracks per segment/field) in which data is shuffled to protect the recording from occasional burst errors. Recordings are further protected by highly robust error-correction and concealment techniques perfected through years of Sony digital-VTR development. Thanks to the finer track pitch and shorter minimum recording wavelength, the data-packing density of the HDCAM-SR format is 3.5 times that of the HDCAM format. Frame-accurate editing is guaranteed by the intelligent allocation of pilot signals for precise head-to-tape tracking.

More Power, More Stability:

The New Tape Formula

A newly developed, ultra-fine-grain magnetic particle used on

HDCAM-SR tapes creates the very thin magnetic layer required to achieve a minimum recording wavelength of 0.29μm. This minimum wavelength allows the tape to hold more data and increases the tape transfer rate, resulting in increased performance. Not only that, but stable and consistent playback results are provided through a new proprietary manufacturing process that minimizes tape deformation. What’s more, because the tape medium is designed with a highly rigid new base film material treated with antioxidants, the HDCAM-SR tape is also ideal for archiving purposes.
