No abnormal channel condition errors or other issues noted. All functions, features, and connections are fully bench tested.

(In Stock)
Price: $595

Ideal for mobile trucks, broadcast studio, production facilities, non-linear editing systems, line/studio recording, editing, synchronizing dailies, transmitting, archiving, and more. Supports 10-bit 4:2:2 AVC Intra 100/50 for the utmost in quality. Also works with DVCPROHD, DVCPRO50, DVCPRO, DV. 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.

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.

AJ-HPM200 mobile P2 recorder
More Info

S/N: C2TBA0006
Used. Cosmetic 9/10

(In Stock)
Price: $775
The AJ-HPM200 / AJ-HPM200P is a mobile P2 HD recorder/player. Operates in master quality AVC intra (100/50) as well as DVCPRO HD/50/25 and DV in worldwide PAL/NTSC frame rates. Not compatible with AVC Intra 50P/60P at 1080 or AVC Intra 200 / AVC Ultra. This is the newer replacement to the AJ-HPM100, adding features such as: enhanced editing functionality, full-frame rate playback from external drives, live up-conversion of video inputs, e-sata and giga-bit ethernet interfaces, 24p time code input for production applications, and AVCHD compatibility (with optional AJ-YCX250G). Additional features include up/down/cross conversion, six P2 slots, waveform monitor, 9" LCD, jog/shuttle wheel, eight 16-bit digital audio channels with 5.1-channel surround and audio faders, headphone/speaker output, gamma conversion for cinema production, varicam speed effects, clip metadata function, and much more.

The clamshell design and durable construction make this ideal for rugged field use, though it's equally at home in the studio. This can be powered with regular AC power or via 4-pin XLR power supply or battery with 4-pin XLR output.

Connections include: HD-SDI, component/composite, IEEE 1394 (DVCPRO/DV), AES/EBU, USB2.0, RS-422A, XLR audio, time code, and more. The P2 Mobiles playlist function enables speedy cut editing of up to 100 events (or a 24-hour timeline).

The AJ-HPM200 features an all-new editor GUI. It can simultaneously display player-side (source material) thumbnails or a preview screen on the left side, a recorder-side (timeline) preview screen on the right side, and the timeline at the bottom. This allows smooth, intuitive operation for users familiar with nonlinear editors and users accustomed to conventional DVCPRO laptop editors.

Excellent cosmetic condition with few signs of wear, obviously taken very good care of. Clean LCD screen. Operation 5211 and power on 563 (which is not high usage for this solid state recorder without moving parts). Does not have the back connector cover, was removed for convenience and easier access to connections. All functions, features, and connections thoroughly tested and in good working order.

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.

More Info

S/N: 12749
Used. Cosmetic 8/10

(In Stock)
Price: $1,275

The HDW-D1800 is a HDCAM studio editing recorder. Unlike the HDW-1800, this model can also playback tapes in Digibeta and MPEG IMX formats. Capable of 60i (59.94i), 50i, 29.97PsF, 23.98PsF, 24PsF. 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. Also features built-in down converter, up to 3 packets of VANC metadata recording / playback, non-audio recording such as Dolby-E or AC3, confidence recording, and color LCD panel (which can display audio levels, time data, menus, and playback/recording picture). Connections include: HD-SDI, SD-SDI, RS-422, analog XLR, composite, component, time code, AES/EBU, and more. This is a full-sized robust studio deck.

This includes the HKDW-104 board which provides 3-2 pull down and 720P output. Low/moderate hours of use: Drum 1274, Tape 916, Thred count 2879. Cosmetically clean with only minor external wear, mainly on top cover. Clean tape transport/path. Shows signs of recent roller replacement. This just had the NV-RAM internal battery replaced, so this will function normally without error codes and maintain setting changes. 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.

J-H3 HDCAM 24P cinealta player
More Info

S/N: 10490
Used. Cosmetic 8/10

(In Stock)
Price: $725

The Sony JH3 HDCAM Cinealta tape deck can playback just about any HDCAM interlaced and progressive scan format, including 60i, 50i, 25p, 30p, and even 24P (unlike the J-H1). Other features include: HD-SDI & SD-SDI serial digital interface as well as analog output, NTSC/PAL multi-standard, computer display output for analog RGB at XGA resolution, 3:2 pulldown, RS-422 control, XLR audio output, timecode output, tele-file support, and ability to operate in a horizontal or vertical position. Has an internal downconverter (to SD-SDI, component, or composite). This compact deck should meet most HDCAM playback needs, whether for reviewing footage, archival, or as part of a NLE editing system.

This includes the rare HKJ-101 i.link / firewire option. It supplies a 6-Pin connector and outputs DV component digital video.

This has some cosmetic scratches on top cover, but no damage. Hours of use: drum 4693, tape 4187, thred 7578, operation 13414. While this may seem like high drum hours at a glance, these are extremely robust units rated to at least 6,000-8,000 drum hours before more major parts like the drum assembly, reel motor, capstan motor, etc would need to be replaced. So it really is likely only about through half it's life with many hours of reliable usage ahead of it. This just had a complete minor servicing done including all the internal parts, elevator, and tape path cleaned and lubricated where needed - as well as the pinch / cleaning rollers replaced. We have loads of experience with tape decks and J-series players and specialize in properly testing them and making sure all functions/features work properly. This is in excellent working condition with no faults noted with any feature or condition of playback.

PMW-EX30 XDCAM EX recorder
More Info

S/N: 130232
Used. Cosmetic 7/10

(In Stock)
Price: $675

The PMW-EX30 deck is a XDCAM EX solid state memory recorder, capable of MPEG HD recording at 35 and 25 MB/s - the perfect compliment to camcorders such as PMW-EX1, PMW-EX1R, PMW-EX3, PMW-320, PMW-350, etc. This doesn't work with XDCAM HD422 like the PMW-50, but can use XDCAM EX recordings from cameras such as PMW-100, PMW-160, PMW-200, and PMW-500. Equipped with two SxS PRO memory card slots, the PMW-EX30 deck can record up to 140 minutes of HD footage using two 16GB SxS PRO memory cards (in SP mode). Around 120 minutes in HQ mode. Can use 32GB cards to double these record times. Supports recording and playback in 29.97p/25p/23.98p mode, and 29.97PsF/25PsF/23.98PsF. Great for dubbing to other format/media such as HDV, XDCAM HD and HDCAM, and feeding to nonlinear editing systems. Many use this as a video assist in conjunction with the Red One camera. The PMW-EX30 deck is equipped with a wide array of interfaces including HD-SDI input and output, HDMI output, HD analog component, and downconverted SD outputs (SD-SDI, l.link, component, s-video. composite). Built in 3.5" LCD monitor. This is the more recent version of this, with the USB upgrade connector available via hatch at top cover.

This has the newest firmware installed, allowing it to work not just with SxS Pro cards but also SxS-1, MEAD-SD01 / MEAD-SD02 SDHC card adapter, and even XQD ExpressCard Adapter QDA-EX1. This shows heavy cosmetic paint wear on the top cover, especially on one side. The front faceplate and LCD is in good condition. Including power supply. 1467 hours of use on meter, which is reasonable usage on a solid state recorder such as this. Tested in excellent working order.

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.
