The Versatile DVCAM Recorder For Professional Editing

1. The DSR-45AP is best used as a player/recorder in a nonlinear editing suite. When used in A/B roll editing, the DSR-45P can be used as a source feeder. The DSR-45AP cannot perform insert or assemble editing nor does it have a synchronization capability.


2. i.LINK is a Sony trademark used only to designate that a product is equipped with an IEEE 1394 connector. All products with an i.LINK connector may not communicate with each other. Please refer to the documentation that comes with any device having an i.LINK connector for information on compatibility, operating conditions, and proper connection.

As digital videocassette recorders evolve, they give users more tools to get the job done quickly and properly. The DSR-45AP* is a new versatile DVCAM digital video recorder that is perhaps the best in its class. Place the DSR-45 in a small to medium sized production house to create an ideal system for both nonlinear editing and linear A/B roll editing as a source feeder.1 Whether editing weddings, corporate training videos or cable television programs, the DSR-45AP gets the job done in a timely manner with professional results. Its i.LINK™2 interface allows seamless integration into compatible DV-based editing suites.

In addition, analog component connectors allow the unit to accept and transfer high-quality video and audio. For external control, the DSR-45AP comes standard with RS-422A and RS-232C interfaces. Equipped with a 2-inch3 built-in LCD, the DSR-45 displays information including; audio level, system status, and the working image as they are needed. The DSR-45 is the videocassette recorder of choice for small to medium-sized production houses.

*In the following text, "DSR-45" refers to both the DSR-45 (525/60 model) and the DSR-45P (625/50 model).

Up to four independent, high-quality, audio channels

The DSR-45 provides two selectable audio channel modes; a two-channel mode with 48 kHz/16-bit

recording and a four-channel mode with 32 kHz/12-bit recording. Thanks to its PCM (Pulse Code Modulation)

digital stereo recording system, the DSR-45 offers superb digital audio performance with a wide dynamic

range and an excellent signal-to-noise ratio, comparable to CD-quality audio.



Playback Compatibility with the DV (25 Mb/s) Format ,Dual-size Cassette Mechanism
The DSR-45 has a dual-size cassette mechanism, which accepts both mini and standard size DVCAM and DV cassette tapes without any special adaptor.

The DVCAM format maintains playback compatibility with the consumer DV format.4 This compatibility allows the

user to play back DV recorded tapes on the DSR-45. Such versatility is quite advantageous to users working with DV

cameras for their great portability and long recording times.

The DSR-45 has a dual-size cassette mechanism, which accepts both mini and standard size DVCAM and DV

cassette tapes without any special adaptor. This innovative feature allows the four different types of

cassette tapes to be used without the cumbersome process associated with additional mechanical hardware.


Capability of Recording in DV(SP) Format

Should you require a longer record time than what is available with the DVCAM format, the DSR-45 is capable

of recording in the DV format. In this format, a standardsized cassette records up to 270 minutes.

Versatile Video and Audio Interfaces


i.LINK Interface
The DSR-45 is equipped with a 4-pin i.LINK (DV) interface based on the IEEE 1394 standard.

The DSR-45 is equipped with a 4-pin i.LINK (DV) interface based on the IEEE1394 standard.

The i.LINK interface provides a digital link from the DSR-45 to a variety of compatible equipment including Sony DVCAM VTRs and

third-party nonlinear editors. Signals including video, audio, time code, and control can be transferred through

this I/O with virtually no degradation of image or sound quality. In addition, when the DVCAM cassette with IC

memory is loaded into a DSR-45, the ClipLink(tm) data recorded on the cassette memory can be uploaded to a

nonlinear editing system.6



Analog Component Input/Output and S-Video

The DSR-45 provides a full range of analog video inputs and outputs; component, composite, and S-Video inputs

and outputs are all available. The DSR-45 can also be used as a signal converter. Component, composite, and

S-Video analog signals can easily be converted to and from i.Link digital signals.

REF Input
The DSR-45 has an external reference input for synchronized playback with other VTRs.

RS-422A Interface
Equipped with an RS-422A interface, the DSR-45 can perform as a source feeder or a recording unit in a professional A/B roll-editing system.

RS-232C Interface
The DSR-45 is equipped with an RS-232C control interface allowing basic VTR functions to be controlled from a PC.

Built-in LCD Front Panel Monitor
The DSR-45 is equipped with a 2-inch high-resolution color LCD monitor that can be menu set-up to display working images, audio levels and system status while editing.

The DVCAM Format,  For Excellent Picture And Sound Quality


The DSR-45 uses the DVCAM format, the professional extension of the worldwide standard DV format. The

DVCAM format uses 8-bit digital component recording with a 5:1 compression ratio and a sampling rate of 4:1:1

(for 525/60)/4:2:0 (for 625/50). The unique compression algorithm provides excellent picture quality and superb

multi-generation dubbing performance.


Long-duration Recording Capability

DVCAM videocassette tapes come in two sizes: standard and mini. A maximum recording time of 184-minutes is

possible with a standard size cassette (PDV-184ME), while the mini cassette (PDVM-40ME) allows up to

40-minutes. Although the tape is relatively narrow, 1/4-inch (6.35 mm), and the cassette compact, these

long recording times are achieved by using Sony advanced ME (Metal Evaporated) tape.
