Now it’s easy to check shots captured with
any HDV or DV camcorder while you’re in the field, in
a hotel room or in the office. Sony today announces the
world’s first HD Video WALKMAN – the portable solution for
viewing HDV and DV tapes while you’re on the move.
Packed with professional features, the
versatile GV-HD700E plays back HDV as well as miniDV tapes
(SP and LP). Its ability to record HDV1080i/DV signals from
an external source also makes it ideal as a back-up deck for
professional videographers covering weddings and other
The clear, bright 7-inch widescreen (16:9)
LCD offers a resolution of 1,152K (800x480x3[RGB])
dots for monitoring video and still images. An All-scan
function ensures that 100% of the recorded frame area is
displayed on the LCD monitor for accurate reviewing of
shots. Up to six
LCD panel setups can be stored and loaded at
any time. The on-screen position of displayed timecode can
be moved to any of six positions according to user
preference. The screen folds down when the GV-HD700E is not
in use for maximum portability.
The HD Video WALKMAN is generously equipped
with interfaces for recording and playing HDV1080i and
Standard Definition DV video from a range of sources. An
HDMI output allows HD viewing on any connected HD-ready TV
It’s also the first Video WALKMAN supporting
x.v.Colour. Based on the new xvYCC standard, x.v.Colour
almost doubles the gamut of colours that can be displayed
accurately on an xvYCC compliant display. HDV tapes recorded
with x.v.Colour can be replayed with x.v.Colour
signals available via HDMI and i.LINK outputs. x.v.Colour
signals can also be read via the i.LINK input, and
x.v.Colour information is passed through to the portable
deck’s HDMI output.
A separate HD/SD component output is
provided in addition to the HDMI output. An i.LINK port
allows direct recording and playback of HDV and DV signals,
while analogue video and audio can be recorded and monitored
via S Video and RCA input connectors. In addition, still
images can be captured from tape (HDV or DV) during playback
and stored onto Memory Stick.
For convenient operation, any of fourteen
commonly-used functions (including search, index mark and
playback zoom) can be assigned to three function buttons.
There’s also a Status Check mode that gives a handy
on-screen confirmation of key Audio, Output, Assign and LCD
For extra versatility the GV-HD700E can be
used with InfoLITHIUM L and M Series batteries. Supplied
accessories include an AC Adaptor, wireless remote
controller, component cable and AV Multi Cable (without S
