Super versatile with compatibility with worldwide PAL/NTSC frame rates (1080, 720, and SD) - and up/down/cross conversion between formats. 6 P2 slots, which allow continuous recording for extended times and hot swapping. Pro connections include: HD-SDI, SD-SDI, AES/EBU, XLR audio, time code, RS-422A, RS-232C, analog composite video, headphone, USB, LAN, eSATA 3Gbit. Additional features include: 4.3" LCD display, comprehensive editing control panel (editor GUI, AV independent edit, insert edit, overwrite edit, editcopy function), jog/shuttle dial, varicam speed effects, text memo, shot marker, clip metadata, direct capture from external VTR, waveform/vectorscope display, gigabit ethernet for FTP transfers (FTP client function, FTP/Samba server function, HTTP server function, and WWW browser function).

This wasn't used by the previous owner, so arrived with almost no usage on the meter (0 operation, 0 LCD, 5 power on). It has some scratches on top cover and rear due to transportation in the facility, but not from actual usage. So internally it is new, but shows some minor wear on exterior. This sold new at most retailers for around $23,000. So this is a steep savings indeed. This is the big daddy of P2 decks, a rare find in this kind of nearly un-used demo condition.
