Sony J-30_SDI (J30, J30SDI)Sony J-30/SDI Player with i-Link (firewire) output (replaces J-3/SDI) - Plays Betacam - SP - SX - Digital Betacam (DigiBeta) & MPEG-2 IMX formats
Sony has updated its J-Series compact videotape players with a variety of new features, including the addition of an i.LINK IEEE-1394 interface as standard. The new J-30 and J-30/SDI models are planned to be available from April 13th, 2004 and will replace the current J-1, J-2 and J-3 models.
Since its introduction in 2001, the J Series has proved to be phenomenally popular as a desktop player used by broadcast producers and journalists for material viewing, logging, and source feeding to servers or nonlinear editing systems.
The addition of IEEE-1394 connectivity enables professional users to more easily operate in a DV environment. All standard definition, half-inch Betacam format tapes, dating back some twenty years, can now easily be converted to a 25 Mbps DV signal and transferred to a compatible DV device via a single digital interface cable.
Playback formats supported by the J-30 models include Betacam, Betacam SP, Betacam SX, Digital Betacam and MPEG IMX. During cassette loading, each format is automatically identified for playback, so no menu settings or switching is necessary. And despite their compact size, the J Series Compact Players can play large-size as well as small-size cassettes. The players can also be easily switched between 525/60 and 625/50 playback modes, enabling operation in international environments.
