Sony J-H3

o reduce the size and cost of HDCAM off line editing

This machine is the first in a line-up to improve the flexibility, and seriously reduce the cost, of transferring your HDCAM rushes to your on line suite.

This is achieved by a unique combination of small size (same as J series) combined with every useful connection from downconverted SDI, analogue standard definition to i-Link.

A downconverter is included as standard, and it can handle both large and small HDCAM cassettes at 24PsF, 25PsF or 29.97PsF. 24PsF recorded tapes can also be played back at 25P with time code conversion.

  • Compact and cost effective HDCAM tape playback

    Despite the compact body design, both small and large HDCAM cassettes are handled in a most cost effective viewer and off line feeder with every interface needed.

  • Wireless remote

    Simple FF/REW/PLAY/STOP/EJECT/SEARCH are supported. Search is ± 5 times.

  • Audio monitoring

    This is conveniently by both XLR and RCA phono jacks, as well as a headphone jack. Either tracks 1 and 2, or 3 and 4 can be monitored. The HDSDI and SDI have embedded audio and VITC

  • i-Link interface

    Total plug and play functionality to any 1394 equipped PC.
