The DSR-1600 is the successor model to the DSR-60. Implementing the innovative, high standard technology featured in the DSR-2000, the DSR-1600 boasts improved jog audio, slow motion and editing performance.Two major features of these models are the built-in jog/search dial and its multiple format playback capability of DV (SP only) and DVCPRO 25.This unit has the ability to automatically accommodate all 25 Mbps cassette sizes, and do not require a cassette adapter or menu setting changes for playback of these formats.The unit also has a full range of both analog and digital interfaces. The availability of the SDI interface ensures a migration path to Digital Betacam, Betacam SX and SDI-based systems. The SDTI (QSDI) interface enable a quality deterioration-free transfer between the DSR-1600 and DV compression-based systems. One new option for this line is the i. LINK™ IEEE-1394 DV I/O connection capability, which is useful for transferring digital video from the DSR-1600 to DV I/O equipped VTRs and nonlinear editing systems.

The DVCAM format uses 8-bit digital component recording with a 5:1 compression ratio and a sampling rate of 4:1:1. The DV compression algorithm provides excellent picture quality and superb multigenerational performance.
The DSR-1600 provides excellent PCM digital audio performance with a wide dynamic range and an excellent signal-to-noise ratio. There are two selectable audio recording modes: 2CH mode with 48 kHz/16-bit or 4CH mode with 32 kHz/12-bit.
The DSR-1600 offers excellent playback compatibility with DV family formats (25Mbps). The DV family formats include DVCAM, DV (SP mode only) and DVCPRO 25*. These tapes can be played back and utilized directly as editing materials with +/-0 Frame accuracy.*Playback signal of DVCRO recorded tape is not available via SDTI(QSDI) and i.LINK interfaces.
Triple-positioning cassette compartment automatically accepts DVCPRO M-size cassette tapes in addition to standard and mini size cassette tapes of DV, DVCAM and DVCPRO. Cassette insertion is done without the need for an external adapter, or the need to set the playback format mode before use.
A highly responsive Jog/Shuttle dial is built in on the front panel. This feature is ideal for searching for desired edit points.
The DSR-1600 offers a variable speed playback function with a range of -0.5 to +0.5 times normal speed. Play back of digital noiseless slow motion pictures and jog sound is also possible within this range. This enables the fast and accurate locating of edit pointson the tape. This feature is available for all DV (25Mbps) format recorded tapes.
The DSR-1600 is equipped with an RS-422A remote control connection to interface with the other compatible equipment. i.LINK based control is also available by installing the DSBK-1803 board. Frame accurate editing is possible through either interface.
By utilizing a DMC-capable editing controller, the DSR-1600 can vary the playback speed for a certain section of a tape in the range of -0.5 to +0.5 times normal speed. Segments can be stored in memory for playback at the same speed. NOTE: DMC is not available through i.LINK and SDTI(QSDI) due to minute speed video data processing capability.
By integrating the DSR-1600 into a non-linear editing (NLE) system which supports ClipLink operation, the VTR is able to send ClipLink information data onto the NLE unit, providing great efficiency throughout the editing process.
The DSR-1600 is equipped with Process Control for both analog and digital outputs in order to obtain highly stable video signals. With Process Control, the video level, chroma level, hue, Y/C delay Sync phase, SC phase and Set up (black) for composite, S-video, component and SDI outputs can be controlled through the VTR menu. These features can also be adjusted from an external TBC remote controller through Video Control port (D-sub 15-pin) on the rear panel.
The DSR-1600 supports time code in the sub code area on a tape, and also VITC through all video signal interfaces. VITC output is achieved by inserting the signal into the vertical-blanking interval. The time code in sub code area can also be output as VITC.
The DSR-1600 has a three-color channel condition indicator, with each color representing a particular error rate threshold level. This function enables operators to quickly recognize the condition of a VTR or tape for more reliable editing operation.
The DSR-1600 is equipped with a built-in signal generator, which can generate color bars or black burst for video, and 1 kHz tone or mute signal for audio. This is very convenient for creating pre-striped tapes before editing.
The DSR-1600 is equipped with a universal powering system that can accommodate AC 100V to 240V, 50 or 60 Hz . A built-in regulator switches the unit to the appropriate voltage automatically. This allows the DSR-1800/1600 to be used worldwide without the need for a transformer.
Auto repeat function is available through the VTR menu. Time code can also be set as start and stop points.
