Medical DVD Recorder
Rewritable DVD+RW Media
A Powerful DVD Recorder for
High-quality Medical Image Recording
The Sony DVO-1000MD is a DVD recorder
designed to comply with medical safety
standards*. It combines outstanding picture
quality with a long three-hour recording time
and operational features optimized for
medical applications. Using DVD+RW discs
for recording, the DVO-1000MD offers the
full benefits of removable disc media.
Recordings can be made without the
cumbersome operation of searching for a
blank area of media and without worrying
about overwriting other recordings. And,
needless to say, they can be randomly
accessed for instant replay.
The DVO-1000MD also incorporates the
ability to record patient data on the disc,
making data management much easier in
subsequent diagnostic procedures.
With outstanding image performance and
convenient features, the DVO-1000MD DVD
Recorder is the ideal choice for a wide range
of medical applications such as ultrasound,
endoscopy, and radiology.
* IEC60601-1, EN60601-1, UL60601-1, CAN/CSA-C22.2 No.601.1
The DVO-1000MD DVD Recorder adopts the
DVD+RW format, an established DVD format offering
re-write capability on inexpensive DVD+RW media.
This feature provides playback compatibility with
many DVD players. While other DVD formats require
a “finalize” process after the recording which can
take a considerable amount of time – the DVD+RW
format eliminates this, reducing the wait time to
eject the disc for subsequent diagnostics.
Another advantage of using DVD disc media is its
long life. This makes it ideal for long-term archiving
of recordings, which is a fundamental requirement in
medial applications. Also, thanks to its physical size,
DVD media offers great space-saving benefits over
conventional VHS cassette tapes.
High-quality Digital Recording
The DVO-1000MD employs MPEG-2 video
compression to capture images with high picture
clarity – an essential criterion for medical image
recording. Its real-time VBR (Variable Bit Rate)
encoding automatically allocates the appropriate bit
rate (the amount of data used for recording)
according to the picture content in real time, thus
optimizing picture quality while effectively utilizing
disc space.
The DVO-1000MD also records audio signals in the
Dolby Digital Stereo format for excellent sound
Long Recording Time
The DVO-1000MD provides a long recording time of
up to three hours on a single disc. Three recording
modes are available, depending on the picture quality
and recording duration required:
HQ Mode*:
Approx. 60 minutes
SP Mode:
Approx. 120 minutes
LP Mode:
Approx. 180 minutes
* In HQ Mode, CBR (Constant Bit Rate) encoding is used.
Quick Random Access by
Title and Chapter
The DVO-1000MD makes records as ‘titles’ –
recording segments from when the REC button is
pressed until the STOP button is pressed. Within a
title, you can set “indexes” to images of interest by
pressing the PAUSE button during recording – you
can even set automatic index marking with a predetermined interval. A segment between two index
points is handled as a “chapter”.
When playing back the disc, quick access to the top
of a title or chapter is possible with the press of a
button. You can also quickly access a desired title or
chapter simply by selecting it from a list that is
instantly displayed by pressing the “LIST” button.
These powerful random access capabilities
significantly speed up the process of reviewing
recordings after the examination.

High-speed Color Picture Search
The DVO-1000MD offers ±3 times normal-speed
playback as standard. Using the optional control
panel SVRM-100A, ±10 times normal-speed playback
becomes available with easy-to-use Jog/Shuttle dial
operation. Furthermore, a maximum ±30 times
normal-speed playback is possible from other medial
equipment connected via the RS-232C protocol.
A Variety of Repeat Playback Modes
In addition to normal playback, three repeat playback
modes are available:
• Repeat between two desired points
• Repeat of the chapter currently played back
• Repeat of the title currently played back
Various Data Recording
In conjunction with medical equipment, the
DVO-1000MD can record various types of
information related to the examinations onto the
DVD disc. Data such as disc/title names, patient data
of up to 2 KB (per one title), and scale data can all
be transferred from connected medical equipment
via the RS-232C interface for recording onto disc.
A Variety of
Remote Control Interfaces
For remote control from other medical equipment,
the DVO-1000MD DVD Recorder supports the
RS-232C protocol – widely used in the Sony
SVO-9500MD S-VHS Medical VTR. Two remote
control units are also available as options: the
SVRM-100A and FS-20. A USB 2.0 (Full Speed)
interface is also provided.
A Wide Range of Interfaces
The DVO-1000MD is equipped with a wide range of
interfaces including analog composite, S-Video and
analog audio I/Os, and an audio monitor output. An
i.LINK™ (DV) input is also provided to achieve highquality digital video recording with minimal signal
* i.LINK is a Sony trademark used only to designate that a
product is equipped with an IEEE1394 connector. Some
products with an i.LINK connector may not communicate with
each other. Please refer to the documentation that comes
with any device having an i.LINK connector for information on
compatibility, operating conditions, and proper connection.
Quick Recording Using
an Internal HDD
The DVO-1000MD is equipped with an internal HDD
(Hard Disk Drive) so that recording always starts the
moment the record button is pressed. The
DVO-1000MD first starts recording to its HDD while
the inserted DVD disc is initializing itself for
recording. Once the DVD disc is ready to record, the
DVO-1000MD starts writing onto the DVD disc using
the data temporarily stored on the HDD. This
mechanism, not available on typical DVD recorders,
makes it possible to start recording right after the
DVD disc is inserted, as well as when resuming the
unit from “stop” mode. In addition, the HDD can
also be used for data recovery in the unlikely event
that a recording fails on the DVD disc*.
* Data recovery must be conducted by a Sony service representative.

Newly Developed DVD+RW Disc for
Medical Operations
Sony has developed a new, highly reliable DVD+RW
disc, the DPW120MD, tailored for the specific
demands of medical recordings. To achieve the
higher reliability required for medical recording, every
DPW120MD disc is subjected to thorough testing for
its write/read performance. The disc has a robust
hard-coat protective layer, allowing it to be antistatic
and highly resistant to scratches and stains.
If unwanted stains do occur on the disc's surface,
the hard-coat protective layer allows users to simply
wipe them off.
Another unique
feature of the
DPW120MD is its
disc surface that
can be easily
written on, even
by a ballpoint pen,
which is very
convenient for practical use.
disc. When playing back the video on a PC, a PC’s
mouse wheel can be conveniently used to
rewind/fast-forward the video.
With its easy-to-use GUIs, the DVD InfoEditor
software makes browsing operations easier and
faster compared with tape-based operations,
significantly improving the efficiency of the review
■ Info Clipper
This application provides a video-editing capability
with simple and intuitive GUIs. Users can easily edit
video as desired without any special expertise in
video editing. The edited video can be saved as an
MPEG file onto desired media such as DVD-R,
DVD-RW, CD-R, or a hard disk drive - a powerful
feature that's ideal for presentations at conferences
and lectures. It also makes it possible to convert a
desired video frame into a still picture in JPEG or BMP
* DVO-1000MD can only play back video that was recorded in
the recorder. Newly edited discs from this software cannot be
played back on the DVO-1000MD.
Supplied Editing Software Canopus DVD InfoEditor Software
The DVO-1000MD recorder includes a copy of the
DVD InfoEditor software, an application for browsing
and editing, which has been developed by Canopus
Co., Ltd.
The DVD InfoEditor software consists of two
applications — “Info Editor” for browsing disc
content and “Info Clipper” for video editing.
■ Info Editor
This application allows users to browse disc content
including video, disc/title names and comments on a
PC. It also allows users to make additional
comments about the contents, edit the disc/title
names, and then write them back to the original
