West German Radio (WDR), one of Europe’s largest television broadcasters, has placed the biggest order in the history of the new Sony XDCAM production system.
The order includes 127 PDW-530P camcorders, PDW-1500 193 recorders and PDW-V1 167 viewers.
WDR in Cologne began planning for the conversion to file-based video in mid-2003 and launched initial tests in April. In June, the administrative board of WDR made its final decision to purchase the XDCAM.
