PDW-F1600 XDCAM HD422 recorder and player

Sony PDW-F1600 XDCAM HD422 Series provides high-quality video and audio recording capabilities, with an image resolution of 1920 x 1080 and eight-channel 24-bit uncompressed audio.

For highly streamlined workflows you can use Proxy Data. Such proxy would be much smaller in size than high-resolution data (1.5Mb/s for video and 0.5Mb/s for audio).
The overall flexibility of Proxy Data means that it can be used for a variety of applications, such as immediate logging on location, off-line editing, daily rushes of shooting on location, client approvals, and more.
This player is ideal for transferring footage into non-linear workstations.
