The Sony HKSR-5003 4:4:4 RGB Processor Board is an optional accessory interface board for SRW-5000 and SRW-5500 VTRs. When installed, it offers the ability to record and play back uncompressed 4:4:4 full bandwidth signals via the dual link SDI connections on the HDCAM SR deck. This board intrinsically meets the high demands of high-profile video operations often required by HDCAM/HDCAM SR studios, compositing suites, and digital mobile units.
Provides 4:4:4 RGB record/playback capability in HDCAM SR format; 4:4:4 recording is competitive with 2K data for high-end archiving and digital intermediate workflows
4:4:4 color resolution is ideal for compositing purposes such as chroma keying, due to the massive amount of color information provided through its data stream
An increased level of latitude is also a benefit to higher color resolution; this translates into footage that is a lot easier to color correct during post sessions
