Thanks to its newly developed MPEG HD422 codec, the XDCAM HD422 Series provides high-quality video and audio recording capabilities, with an image resolution of 1920 x 1080 and eight-channel 24-bit uncompressed audio.
Now, Sony is proud to announce a new addition to the series - the PDW-F1600 deck. The PDW-F1600 offers multi-format recording flexibility as standard - including SD recording and a frame rate of 23.98P in 1080 mode.
