Sony PMW-1000 SxS recorder

Enhanced XDCAM HD422 workflow for linear and non-linear operations

The compact, affordable PMW-1000 SxS memory recording deck has two SxSExpressCard™ memory card slots providing a wide variety of HD and SD recordings and playback, including 50 Mbps XDCAM HD422. The half-rack size recorder has SD / HD-SDI interfaces and Gigabit Ethernet (1000BASE-T) interfaces for non-linear network operations, as well as an RS-422 interface and jog/shuttle control to allow “linear like” ingest and editing.

XAVC HD support for PMW-F55 and PMW-F5 cameras

The PMW-1000 also supports 100 Mbps XAVC (1080/29.97p/25p/23.98p/59.94i/50i)* recordings on SxS media and allows easy XAVC HD playback and monitoring, making it an ideal recorder/player to work with the PMW-F55 and PMW-F5 CineAlta cameras. It also allows high-speed recorded content from both cameras to be played back in slow motion.

* 4K is not supported.

Smooth SD to HD migration

The deck supports a variety of SD record and playback standards, including DVCAM record and playback and MPEG IMX and DV playback to make the smooth migration from SD to HD as easy as possible.
