Sony will introduce four new option boards for its XDCAM HD Professional Disc system to extend the system's capabilities next month at NAB2006 in Las Vegas.
The PDBK-101 network board delivers GigE capabilities for users in networked environments. The PDBK-102 allows input and output of 25Mb/s HDV streams (MPEG-2 transport streams) for interfacing with HDV products or HDV-based nonlinear editors via an i.LINK (IEEE 1394) port. The PDBK-103 offers an HD analog component input and RGB input. The PDBK-104 provides SD-SDI and SD composite inputs for HD upconversion recording capabilities.
The Sony XDCAM HD family of optical products includes the PDW-F350 and PDW-F330 camcorders and PDW-F70 and PDW-F30 decks.
