  • 1Description

The PMW-1000 provides outstanding MPEG HD422 picture quality as well as an uncompromising eight-channel (HD-SDI), 24-bit audio recording capability, all packed in a compact half-rack-size deck.

Versatile input and output interfaces: RS-422 9-pin remote control interface to be used as a feeder for linear editing
Gigabit Ethernet for high speed file transfer for network operation
HDMI monitoring output for more flexible operation on any occasion
USB interface for connection to an external USB HDD enables users to copy clips directly to a USB HDD without employing any other devices; helping to reduce storage costs, and means that users can make copies and backups simply and quickly. 2
