- LINKTM Interface Standard on the DSR-1500A is the i.LINK
interface which is based on the IEEE 1394 standards. The i.LINK interface
enables a single cable to simultaneously carry digital video and audio signals,
as well as data and control signals, with virtually no quality deterioration.
This simple connection offers an ideal solution for interconnecting the
DSR-1500A with i.LINK-equipped compatible nonlinear editing systems and other

- Digital Interfaces (DSBK-1501 Digital Input/Output Board)
The optional DSBK-1501 Digital Input/Output Board provides the DSR-1500A with
SDI*, SDTI (QSDI™)* and AES/EBU digital audio interfacing. Using SDI provides a
direct video/audio I/O between the DSR-1500A and digital equipment such as
Digital Betacam™, MPEG IMX™ and Betacam SX™ VTRs, while the AES/EBU capability
provides an interface to digital audio mixers and so on. This interface
flexibility ensures upward compatibility throughout the broadcasting system.
The SDTI (QSDI) allows virtually degradation-free transfer of both video and
audio signals between the DSR-1500A and other SDTI (QSDI) interface equipped
compatible video equipment and nonlinear editing systems.
- The SDTI (Serial Data Transport Interface) is defined as
- The SDTI (QSDI) is the DV compressed signal interface which
is defined as SMPTE 322M. *Either SDI or SDTI (QSDI) is selectable by menu.
- Analog Interfaces (DSBK-1504 Analog Input Board) With the
optional DSBK–1504 Analog Input Board installed, a full range of analog
interfaces – composite, component, S-Video (Y/C) and two channel analog audio
(via XLR connectors) – is provided.
