(In Stock)
Price: $595

Hours of use: Operation 29572, LCD 5, power on 14T. So while the operation hours indicate it was left powered on in studio in standby, it was actually only used for a very low amount of times in terms of LCD and actual usage. This is set up in a rack configuration, so it has rack ears but no rubber feet. Cosmetically this is more rough than average. There is scuffs, scrapes, and small dents on top cover and some on front panel. The cap for preview button is missing (though can still be pressed with a paperclip or similar). There is several areas of rust/corrosion on casing because was used in a coastal location, though this is purely cosmetic and does not affect circuit boards at all (just cosmetic spots on metal casing). All major functions, features, and connections are thoroughly tested in excellent working order. This is not the prettiest recorder out there, but it works solidly and is well tested.

DVD-RP82 DVD player w/ SDI mod
More Info

S/N: KS2JA001587
Used. Cosmetic 7/10

(In Stock)
Price: $75

The Panasonic DVD-RP82 is a DVD player that plays DVD-Audio, DVD-Video, DVD-RAM, DVD-R, CD-R, CD-RW, and MP3- and WMA-encoded CDs. Quick Replay jumps 10 seconds for easy recaps. Progressive-scan video output. Dolby Digital and DTS surround-sound decoding with 6 analog-audio outputs and an optical digital-audio output. Variable zoom converts widescreen images to full-screen on 4:3 TVs. Outputs include component video, composite, s-video, surround 5.1, coaxial, optical.

But what really makes this special is it has had a professional SDI mod installed. This modification upgrades this to have a SMPTE 259M serial digital interface. The modded SDI connection bypasses the D/A and A/D stages and sends a digital 480i & 576i signal directly into your video processor. The result is a much more detailed picture with richer colors and NO video noise.

This is a region 3 player (Southeast Asia / South Korea / Taiwan, parts of East Asia including Hong Kong) which should play NTSC and PAL discs. It has significant cosmetic scratches and paint wear on top and faceplate. It is also missing the jog/shuttle knob (though jog/shuttle can still be operated by fingertip). No remote included. Tested in good working order, including SDI output.

Used. Cosmetic 8/10

Also can do 3:2 pulldown with the optional HKDW-104 board (which is included here). Editing features inherited from the HDW-2000 such as DMC, audio split, pre-read, and audio cross-fade.

Cosmetically clean with only minor external wear, mainly on top cover. Clean tape transport/path. Shows signs of recent roller replacement.

These internal batteries are often old and not recently replaced on used examples of these, so this is important for a unit to be reliable. No channel condition errors. All functions, features, and connections are tested in excellent working order with small and large HDCAM cassette sizes, as well as Digibeta and MPEG IMX tape playback. This will ship in a hard foam-lined transport case. The case is well-used and shows cosmetic wear and writing on it, but is suitable for protection in shipping and transport.

SRW-5800 HDCAM SR recorder
More Info

S/N: 10049
Used. Cosmetic 8/10

(In Stock)
Price: $6,750
This is a SRW-5800 HDCAM SR studio recorder, loaded with the three major options - HKSR-5001 format converter, HKSR-5802 HDCAM/digibeta playback, and HKSR-5803HQ advanced HQ 4:4:4 880Mbps processor board.

The SRW-5800 is the top-of-the-line most recent HDCAM SR VTR - a master format for movies, commercial productions, high-end TV, archiving, HD broadcast, etc. This is the only SR recorder that can work with 880 Mb/s high data bit rate and 1080/60P and 50P recording (unlike the SRW-5500). This records in HDCAM SR only (not HDCAM). The HDCAM SR format uses MPEG-4 Studio Profile with visually lossless compression. Powerful error-correcting technology and high-peformance heads with auto tracking technique allows for very reliable recording and playback. The SRW-5800/1 is capable of recording uncompressed audio, which makes it a vital tool for high-end audio archiving while being able to record non-audio data such as metadata information. 12-channel audio signal is recorded in 48-kHz 24-bit format. 1080 formats include 59.94i, 60i, 50i, 23.98PsF, 24PsF, 25PsF, 29.97PsF, 30PsF. Also has 720/59.94P and 50P. Additional features noiseless playback at variable speeds, confidence heads, advanced time code features with time code input/output, independent audio level control, tele-file memory label system, capstan override function, remote control operation, frame accurate assembly/insert editing, digital jog sound, signal generators, fine tuning of almost any parameter you can think of, and much much more.

The included HKSR-5803HQ option board makes the full power of this unit shine with its 880Mbps bit rate. Allows 4:4:4 full bandwidth signals in SQ (440Mbps BRR 4:1) and HQ (880Mbps BRR 2:1). Can do 60P and 50P at 4:2:2. Playback is now possible of 3D tapes record by SRW-5800 or SRW-1. Further allows 2x transfer to a specific server over HD-SDI dual link. Note this is dual-link compatible (3G-SDI is not available because this is the original SRW-5800 deck installed in it, not the SRW-5800/1). Meets the demands of high profile video studios, compositing suites, and digital mobile units. Ideal for purposes such as chroma keying, due to the massive amount of color information provided through its data stream. 4:4:4 footage is much easier to color correct during post.

This also has the HKSR-5802 HDCAM and digibeta playback option board installed. Can upconvert from digibeta to HD-SDI. HDCAM formats supported include 23.98P, 24P, 25P, 29.97P, 30PsF, 50i, 60i, 59.94i. If you have HDCAM and/or Digibeta tapes to play, you can use this SRW-5800 without the need for a seperate HDCAM and Digibeta deck!

Lastly this has the HKSR-5001 format converter option. Allows the deck to convert HDCAM and HDCAM SR to a wide variety of frame rates, resolutions, and color bit rates. Change HDCAM SR full color sources to 4:2:2 compressed HDCAM as well as convert 1080i to 720P cross conversion. 4:4:4 to 4:2:2 and 2-3 pull-down conversion capability. Adds tremendous versatility to your SRW series deck.

This has the three major options installed, making this a very powerful unit. Low original hours of use compared to most: Operation 4894, drum 1648, tape 1250, thread 4020. A few areas of paint wear on top, but overall in clean cosmetic condition. The latest firmware is installed, so it has all the feature improvements and bug fixes that entails. This also has had recent maintenance, including transport cleaning, adjustments, and replacement of the NVRAM batteries. These internal batteries are almost always dead or near-dead on these, causing malfunctions in the unit and not properly storing settings. When correctly replaced and reset, the unit will now work correctly and reliably. So this has not only been properly serviced and maintained, but fully tested in good working order with both HDCAM and HDCAM SR tape, with no functional defects or channel condition errors noted. All major functions, settings, features, and connections were tested thoroughly - not just a brief attempt to see if it plays a tape. This is a fully tested and maintained deck with all the option boards, newest firmware, and low original usage. There may be a cheaper unit out there, but you would be hard pressed to find a better example. This is a tremendous value for a fully loaded excellent condition SRW-5800 sold and tested by a knowledgable seller.
