The XDS-PD2000 is the top level model of the XDCAM Station range. It supports the operation with all SxS cards types and formats, including Memory Stick and SDHC cards when corresponding MEAD adaptors are used, plus supports all XDCAM Professional Disc models in all recording formats and modes.
The XDCAM Station is a professional media station with built-in storage and interfaces for both Professional Disc media and SxS memory cards, enabling hybrid operation in an XDCAM workflow. It features better support for multi-task operation, networking, and other IT functions. Adding the XDCAM Station to an XDCAM workflow makes file-based operation much more convenient and efficient.
MP4 and AVI files generated by the PMW-EX series recordings, when transferred to the internal SSD, are converted to MXF format, while all MXF recordings generated with PMW-500 series are maintained in MXF mode. The Internal 500 GB SSD and 1Gigabit Ethernet connection allow multi-user simultaneous access and a total of about 16 Hours of continuous recording in HD4:2:2 @ 50Mbps.
The internal 4th generation Professional Disc Drive allow partial transfer of materials or full backup from the XDCAM Disc to the internal 500 GB SSD. Furthermore, materials from internal SSD can be also partially copied to the XDCAM Professional Disc. Simultaneous operation of baseband recording and playback or slow-motion is possible. Editing while recording (growing file editing) mode is also possible.
