The DVW-M2000P is the most fully featured VTR in the Digital Betacam line-up. It replaces the DVW-A500P, Digital Betacam is in widespread use world-wide for the production of very high quality programme material. There is a substantial installed base of products and the format is readily accepted by many of the world’s most prestigious broadcasters. You can choose from a range of camcorders, studio VTRs, office players and a portable recorder for productions such as drama, natural history, arts, commercials or where you need to guarantee the best results for general TV programming. The DVW-M2000P records and replays Digital Betacam component digital video. And for the first time in a Digital Betacam VTR, it also replays Betacam, Betacam SP, Betacam SX and MPEG IMX cassettes.

This machine packs high quality video performance, 4 channels of 20 bit digital audio and class-leading editing performance into a compact 4U chassis.

Features include:


  • High quality pictures for your prestige productions Digital Betacam was the first recording format from Sony to use data compression of the digital video signal. A very mild compression ratio was chosen to ensure that picture quality remains extremely high, especially for productions requiring complex multi-generation editing. Today, Digital Betacam equipment is in widespread use for productions where the best quality output is a mandatory requirement.
  • 16:9 operation for widescreen programming Widescreen production has been on the increase for a number of years, and the ability to record 4:3 or 16:9 pictures - automatically - ensures a long shelf-life for your programme.
  • Top quality digital audio 4 channels of 20 bit 48kHz digital audio are provided as standard on every Digital Betacam VTR, and each channel can be independently edited. So, you can be sure that your programmes will sound as good as they look.
  • Easy migration from analogue infrastructures You can replay your Betacam and Betacam SP cassettes from the DVW-M2000P, to keep revenues flowing from archived material.
  • More choice for multi-format playback In addition to the ability to replay analogue Betacam cassettes, the DVW-M2000P can also replay Betacam SX, MPEG IMX and Digital Betacam tapes. So all 625/50 standard definition Betacam-family recordings can be incorporated into your Digital Betacam edit.
  • Peace of mind even for the toughest operating environments Digital Betacam recorders and players are in continuous use feeding thousands of “on-air” channels 24 hours a day. Their operation has been well proven over many years, and provides the peace-of-mind you need whatever the application.
  • Familiar operation and design Retraining technical and operational people can be a time-consuming business. The operational controls and mechanical design of the DVW-M2000P are familiar to operators and engineers worldwide, keeping training costs to an absolute minimum.
