Sony PDW-R1 recorder/player

The PDW-R1 is a highly mobile field recorder. Its compact design is very similar to the existing PDW-V1 model, but the PDW-R1 recorder additionally provides other functionalities such as MPEG IMX/DVCAM recording, and a wider range of interfaces. Its extremely compact, lightweight body with AC, DC or battery powered operation makes the PDW-R1 ideal for use in the field as a pool-feed recorder, backup recorder, and compact recorder installed in an extremely confined space such as a car or helicopter. Furthermore, equipped with an RS-422A interface as well as other video and audio interfaces, this recorder can be used in both linear and nonlinear editing systems.
