The go-anywhere, do-anything digital videocassette recorder.

Because a quick turnaround is essential in professional video production, it's important to ensure your editing equipment won't slow you down. The new DSR-1500AP DVCAM Editing Recorder from Sony offers a host of professional features and built-in flexibility. 

Various optional interface boards let you configure the DSR-1500AP to suit a range of video applications, from simple playback to high-quality source feeding for linear or non-linear editing. Its space-saving, half-rack design makes it ideal for installation in OB vehicles and in desktop editing systems.

Play back compatible with DV formats, the DSR-1500AP also ensures an easy migration path to more sophisticated systems.

  • Automatic DV format change

    The DSR-1500AP automatically detects DV, DVCAM and DVCPRO tape formats.

  • Playback of three sizes of DV, DVCAM and DVCPRO cassettes

    The DV formats include not only DVCAM and DV but also the DVCPRO format. Three cassette sizes utilised for these formats. All these tapes can be played back in the DSR-1500AP without any special mechanical adapter.

  • No need to dub up to other higher formats, which is often required on other DV VTRs

    The editing functions such as digital slow motion, jog audio and DMC are all available for all DV tape formats. Superb jog audio lets you easily handle all the DV tape formats as direct editing sources. This means that, even when using DV or DVCPRO recorded tapes as editing sources, there is no need to dub to other, higher, formats.

  • i.LINK interface as standard

    The DSR-1500AP is newly equipped with i.LINK interface as standard (optional on the DSR-1500P).
    The i.LINK interface enables a single cable to simultaneously carry digital video and audio signals as well as data and control signals, with no quality deterioration. This simple connection offeRs an ideal for interconnecting the DSR-1500AP with i.LINK equipped non-linear editing systems and other computer-related products.

  • Consumer DV (SP) recording capability

    Should you require a longer recording time than what is available with DVCAM format, the DSR-1500AP can also record in Consumer DV format (SP only). A standard-size DVCAM cassette can record for up to 276 minutes, while a mini-size cassette records for up to 60 minutes.
    In addition, without any rewiring, an edited program can be recorded directly with DV format for distribution purposes.

  • Compact design

    At only half-rack size (3U high), the DSR-1500AP fits easily into a variety of user environments. Often used as an editor or feeder machine in desktop nonlinear editing systems, it can also be installed in confined spaces such as OB vehicles.

  • The wide aspect ID (16:9) can be recorded or erased

    Pictures recorded in a 16:9 aspect ratio include a wide aspect ID located in the VITC. The DSR-1500AP can record or erase this ID. For example, if you dont want this ID signal to appear on a TV display, this ID can be erased. If the video signal passes through an editing or effects system this ID signal is often removed. The DSR-1500AP can re-record it.

  • Minimised video degradation

    Due to a newly developed filter colour blurring during baseband dubbing (e.g. SDI or analogue component) has been significantly reduced.

  • No Generator required to record a pre-striped tape

    The DSR-1500AP incorporates an internal signal generator. This generates either colour bars (100% or 75%) or black /burst signals for video and a 1 kHz tone or silence for audio. This function is convenient for recording a pre-striped tape prior to editing.

Original KVM or KVM over IP
Jochen Bauer Will the technology used in broadcasting solely consist of IP devices? For years, IP has been entering all areas of life. Especially control room applications as they are typically deployed in broadcasting benefit from the IP revolution in many ways. But an “IP-only broadcast world” is not yet here. Nevertheless, the trend clearly moves towards IP transmission, even though a large part of content production still uses traditional transmission paths. And therefore we continue to live in a hybrid world, using both original and IP-based technology. KVM experts Guntermann und Drunck still rely on both original KVM and KVM-over-IP™ to be able to offer their customers the best of both worlds.

To Remotely Go - TVFutures
Michael Parsons One of my biggest concerns as an academic responsible for the education of hundreds of students is the ‘appropriateness’ of much of the technology we purchase and implement within the curriculum. The last few years have seen tremendous change in all sorts of technologies, and the broadcast industry is just one sector that has seen some significant leaps in innovation.

Undercover Remote Production
David Bradley

It’s only taken 20 years and it seems that Remote Production is finally coming of age, but it now requires far more cameras than anyone envisaged back in the last century!

The move to remote production is one of the unstoppable trends of 2019 and moving into 2020. Our CamBall cameras pioneered remote working as early as 2003 with sport and wildlife programming using remote production for many years with incredible results.

Keeping the Show on the Road

The Future of Broadcast Connectivity
Jamie Adkin The use of KVM equipment has been essential to meet the evolving needs of the broadcast industry for many years. Over that time, many in the industry have recognised the importance of using IP-enabled KVM to break down technological barriers and enable real-time access to visuals wherever and whenever they’re needed. These components are vital parts in live production environments in particular.

Keeping Pace with the Content Revolution
Kevin Fitzgerald These are uniquely challenging times for broadcasters and their technical teams. Not only are they having to negotiate the move to IP-based infrastructures and the introduction of new formats and techniques such as 4K and HDR, they are also having to generate more content than ever before to support OTT and web services as well as traditional linear broadcast.

Why MADI is Still Relevant
Stephen Brownsill While the original idea for MADI was to cater to a very narrow recording studio application, the standard remains a viable go-to multichannel audio technology. Beginning as a standard in 1991, MADI was first introduced to the world as digital production was beginning to come of age. MADI was put together in 1988 by Solid State Logic, AMS-Neve, Sony (DASH) and Mitsubishi (ProDigi) as a way to transport up to 56 channels of digital audio between large-format audio consoles of the day and digital multi-channel tape machines via 75-Ohm coaxial cables. Both tape-based machines have long since disappeared from the equipment landscape.
