HDCAM recording and playback
HDCAM uses intra-frame DCT compression using a compression ratio of about 7:1. There are four channels of 48kHz digital audio at 20-bit resolution.

Multiple recording frame rates
The HDW-S280/1 can record and replay at 1080/50i, 59.94i, 23.98PsF, 24PsF, 25PsF and 29.97PsF. Selection of each format is via a set-up menu in the recorder.

Compatible replay of standard definition digital cassettes
Both 625/50 and 525/60 Betacam, Betacam SP and Betacam SX cassettes can be replayed.

Built-in up and down converters
The HDW-S280/1 has a built in HD to SD downconverter and a built-in SD to HD upconverter. Downconversion allows tapes shot in HDCAM to be output in standard definition for subsequent post production or distribution. Upconversion allows Betacam and Betacam SX material from tape to be output from the HDW-S280/1 in high definition.

Simple editing operation
Assemble and back-space editing are provided by the HDW-S280/1. Please note that absolute frame accuracy cannot be guaranteed during editing.

AC, DC and battery operation
The HDW-S280/1 can be operated using mains AC power. It can also accept 12V DC power from an external DC power adapter, and can be run using batteries.

Built-in LCD monitoring
An LCD monitor is built into the front panel of the HDW-S280/1. This can be used to view the video signal input to the recorder, the video signal being replayed from tape or the operational menus of the VTR.

Compact chassis
The HDW-S280/1 uses a half rack width chassis for portable operation, or for installation into locations where space is limited. The HDW-S280/1 can record and replay small cassettes only.

Remote Control
The HDW-S280/1 can be operated using an external controller via its 9-pin interface.
