The Sony PMW-RX50 XAVC Portable SxS Card Recorder is a compact deck that supports Sony's 10-bit XAVC Intra-frame and Long GOP codecs at resolutions up to 1080 59.94p/50p. To suit a broad range of needs, the deck also supports MPEG HD422, MPEG HD420, and standard definition codecs such as MPEG IMX50 and DVCAM. It features dual ExpressCard 34 media slots, which can be used to record footage from the 3G/HD/SD-SDI input to SxS memory cards. You can also insert SxS cards from your camcorder and use the built-in 3.5" LCD for field review of footage.
In addition to the SDI input, the deck also features a detachable Audio Input Box for inputting and recording two channels of XLR audio. SDI, HDMI, and i.LINK video outputs are provided for monitoring or ingesting footage into your NLE system. There is also a USB 3.0 port for copying clips directly to an external hard drive. To facilitate easy integration into existing workflows, the recorder is powered using the same BP-U series batteries and AC adapters as Sony's XDCAM handheld camcorders.
