With the first High Definition (HD) broadcasts already launched in Europe, programme-makers are enthusiastically embracing the exciting business opportunities of better-looking, more seductive pictures.
Whether you’re shooting a prestige
commercial, a flagship television drama series or a corporate
production, High Definition gives the opportunity to capture your
audience’s imagination with a vastly improved on-screen look
and enhanced international marketability.
Definition format is right for you ?
Sony offers three High Definition format options, all delivering a balanced blend of features and performance that’s tailored to a wide range of real-world production needs and budgets.
|1||HDV||The affordable entry
point to the world of High Definition.
With Sony HDV, the benefits of High Definition programme production are at last accessible to everyone. Offering an ideal migration path from DVCAM to entry-level HD production, HDV records pictures at 1080 line resolution onto a standard DV format cassette. As well as reducing camcorder size and weight to around that of ‘prosumer’ formats, use of this smaller cassette size cuts media costs. It also allows dual-format HDV/DVCAM recording and playback with the same camcorder or VTR editing deck – reducing hardware inventory requirements, storage and transportation costs. Furthermore, it’s easy to incorporate HDV material into the HDCAM world via an external converter.
A step up in quality from DVCAM, HDV makes it even more affordable for programme-makers to experience the
benefits of HD without a big price premium.
