    Sony PDW-HD1200 Professional Disc Recorder

    Smooth migration to tapeless, file-based HD operation
    The Sony PDW-HD1200 single laser head (drive) Professional Disc recorder provides a wide range of AV and IT interfaces including HD-SDI, SD-SDI, i.LINK™ and Ethernet. The high-performance disc recorder has less features than the PDW-HD1500 but maintains the same field-proven operability, making it an ideal companion to the affordable PDW-680 Professional Disc camcorder. 

    The PDW-HD1200 provides outstanding MPEG HD422 picture quality as well as an uncompromising 8 channel (HD-SDI), 24 bit audio recording capability, all packed in a compact half-rack-size deck. With its unique ability to support three different power sources (AC, DC, or battery power), its large 4.3-inch* LCD, and its built-in speaker, the PDW-HD1200 performs as a versatile and high-quality recorder suitable for both in-house and field operations.

    HD and SD recordings and playback for a broad range of applications 

    The PDW-HD1200 can record and playback in MPEG IMX and DVCAM formats in the SD domain as standard. Additionally, it is equipped with an up/down converter, which is highly useful when employing both HD- and SD-format materials in mixed operation. What’s more, the RS-422 interface and Gigabit Ethernet enables the PDW-HD1200 to be used as a player deck for linear editing and a feeder deck for non-linear editing. 

    With innovative high performance and sophisticated operability, the PDW-HD1200 is an affordable yet highly reliable recording tool for a broad range of HD production applications.
