The DVW A500P is the most fully-featured VTR in the Digital Betacam line-up. It records and replays component digital video using small and large Digital Betacam cassettes.
The DVW A500P can also replay Betacam and Betacam SP cassettes, allowing analogue material to be easily replayed into digital systems.
The robust construction of the DVW-A500P, it's 4 channels of 20 bit digital audio and it's high quality video output have also made it a firm favourite for linear "on-air" playout.
The DVW-A500P is also the ultimate VTR for digital capture and play-out of SD (Standard Definition) material from Non-Linear editing and compositing suites.

High quality pictures for your prestige productions
Digital Betacam was the first recording format from Sony to use data compression of the digital video signal. A very mild compression ratio was chosen to ensure that picture quality remains extremely high, especially for productions requiring complex multi-generation editing. Today, Digital Betacam equipment is in widespread use for productions where the best quality output is a mandatory requirement.
16:9 operation for widescreen programming
Widescreen production has been on the increase for a number of years, and the ability to record 4:3 or 16:9 pictures - automatically - ensures a long shelf-life for your programme.
Top quality digital audio
4 channels of 20 bit 48kHz digital audio are provided as standard on every Digital Betacam VTR, and each channel can be independently edited. So, you can be sure that your programmes will sound as good as they look.
Easy migration from analogue infrastructures
You can replay your Betacam and Betacam SP cassettes from the DVW-A500P. That keeps revenues flowing from archived material, and makes it easy to incorporate analogue material into your digital edit.
Peace of mind even for the toughest operating environments
Digital Betacam recorders and players are in continuous use feeding thousands of "on-air" channels 24 hours a day. Their operation has been well proven over many years, and provides the peace-of-mind you need whatever the application.
Familiar operation and design
Retraining technical and operational people can be a time-consuming business. The operational controls and mechanical design of the DVW-A500P are familiar to operators and engineers worldwide, keeping training costs to an absolute minimum.
