The PDW-HD1500 will record and replay XDCAM HD 50 Mb/s 4:2:2 data onto 50 GB Dual-layer Professional Disc. With interfaces including i.LINK and Ethernet, the PDW-HD1500 can operate at the heart of small or large scale file-based networked systems. VTR-like JOG/shuttle operation and video interfaces including HD-SDI and SD-SDI also makes the PDW-HD1500 ideal for operation in more traditional vide-based installations.

The PDW-HD1500 has been designed to increase the appeal of XDCAM HD for high-end applications such as drama, documentary and natural history and for mainstream entertainment programmes that required a prestige quality look.

File-based acquisition onto Professional Disc, with thumbnail and proxy operation will also make the PDW-HDW-1500 ideal for networked applications where speed of production is a critical.
