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.
