Digital Betacam is in widespread use worldwide for the production of very high-quality program material. There is a substantial installed base of products and the format is readily accepted by many of the world’s most prestigious broadcasters. You can choose from a range of camcorders, studio VTRs, office players, and a portable recorder for productions such as drama, natural history, arts, commercials, or where you need to guarantee the best results for general TV programming.

The Sony DWV-M2000P is the most fully-featured VTR in the Digital Betacam line-up. It replaces the DWV-A500P, which for the last 10 years has been the de-facto tool for standard definition productions of the highest quality. The DVWM2000P records and replays Digital Betacam component digital video. And for the first time in a Digital Betacam VTR, it also replays Betacam, Betacam SP, Betacam SX and MPEG IMX cassettes.

The DWV-M2000P pack's high-quality video performance, 4 channels of 20-bit digital audio and class-leading editing performance into a compact 4U chassis. 

Technical Details

Features :

  • Fast familiar editing performance Operators around the world are familiar with the editing features provided by the DWV-A500P. The same easy-to-use controls have been designed into the DWV-M2000P. Assemble, Insert and Pre-read editing combined with smooth Jog and Shuttle control keeps the edit session moving at a rapid pace.
  •  Long record duration onto digital tape The DWV-M2000P records up to 124 minutes onto a large Digital Betacam cassette and up to 40 minutes onto a small cassette. That's significantly more than the capacity of a Betacam SP VTR, and the pictures look better too.
  • Flexible signal interfaces The DWV-M2000P has composite and component analog and SDI inputs and outputs as standard. Audio can be input and output from the DWV-M2000P via the analog, AES/EBU, or SDI interfaces which are a standard feature of every machine.
  • The industry-standard remote control interface The RS-422A control port allows control from a wide range of Sony and third-party controllers. You can quickly connect the recorder to your favorite edit controllers for studio or outside productions.
  • Easy integration into existing cart systems Digital Betacam VTRs are the ideal machines with which to digitize an existing Betacam SP "on-air" facility. The DWV-M2000P is the same 4U height as the MSW-M2000P/1 Series MPEG IMX VTRs and can be installed into Sony or third-party cart machines with minimum disruption to your operation.
  •  Audio "track bouncing" for speedy sound editing Each of the 4 channels of 20-bit digital audio can be independently edited, and audio can be edited separately to video even in pre-read mode. So, you can "bounce" audio tracks from channel to channel for complete flexibility in audio post-production.
  •  Automatic alignment after routine maintenance Automatic alignment of the signal path after routine servicing is achieved via the Maintenance Menu of the DWV-M2000P. This speeds up routine maintenance and keeps operational downtime to a minimum.
  • High Definition Up-conversion with optional plug-in board In recognition of the continued increase in the number of High Definition productions, a plug-in HD Upconverter board can be fitted into the DWV-M2000P. This provides a 1080/50i output via HD-SDI from Betacam, Betacam SP, Betacam SX, MPEG IMX and Digital Betacam cassettes.
  •  Memory Stick slot for rapid VTR configuration A Memory Stick slot is located at the front of the VTR, and operational set-ups can be uploaded and downloaded to the DWV-M2000P from the Memory Stick. This feature is especially useful to quickly reset to a standard set-up after VTRs are returned from hire.
