The Sony HKSR-5103 Advanced Processor Board is an optional accessory board for the SRW-5100 player. When installed, it offers the ability to play back HDCAM SR formats with uncompressed 4:4:4 full bandwidth RGB signals. Aside from its compatibility with 1080/60p, 1080/50p, and 720p, this board enables play back of HDCAM SR formats recorded in 880Mbps. 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 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
