Sony DSR-1500AP DVCAM 2080 Tape hours SN 0403219
The DSR-1500AP is a DVCAMTM Editing Recorder that offers many significant advantages in professional video
With its wide range of interfaces from analog to digital, the DSR-1500A can be configured to meet a broad
range of user requirements.
Its applications range from simple source playback for viewing purposes to highquality source feeding and recording for linear or nonlinear editing.
The DSR-1500A is contained in a compact, half-rack design, making it ideal for installation in OB vehicles,
desktop editing systems or in locations where space is at a premium.
A key advantage is its playback compatibility with DV (25 Mb/s) family format, including consumer DV (SP
mode) and DVCPRO. This capability enables the DSR-1500A to be used in a broad range of applications.
- A range of versatile interfaces is available, allowing flexible analog and
digital system configurations. Users can choose from this range of
interfaces to configure the DSR-1500A to their individual requirements.
These various interfaces enable the DSR-1500A to function as a
compact, high-performance professional editing VTR.
- 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 computer-related products.
- LINK is a Sony trademark used only to designate that a product is equipped with an IEEE
1394 connector. All 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.

- 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 SMPTE 305M.
- 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.
