Model Details

SONY MSW M2000 MPEG IMX™ Digital Recorder, 50Mb/s MPEG-2 data compression, ½” tape transport, Memory Stick slot.


Enabling the present, protecting the past.

MPEG IMX is an established family of disk-based and linear products from Sony for the production, playout and storage of programme material at up to 50Mb/s MPEG-2 4:2:2P@ML.

The SONY MSW M2000P/1 MPEG IMX Studio Recorder combines the high picture quality of 50Mb/s Intra-frame MPEG-2 data compression with a rugged and reliable ½” tape transport.

Designed for programme productions such as drama, sports and natural history, the
MSW-M2000P/1 provides eight channels of uncompressed digital audio, making it ideal for multi-lingual and multi-channel operation.

In addition to compatible replay of Betacam SX cassettes, the MSWM2000P1 can also replay Betacam, Betacam SP and Digital Betacam tapes, providing an elegant migration of existing systems to the open world of MPEG-2.
The picture quality you need for the most demanding programme productions
MPEG-2 4:2:2P@ML data compression at 50Mb/s intra-frame is used for recording and replay of the video signal. This compression standard has been recognised by the European Broadcast Union (EBU) as one of the compression families upon which future broadcast systems should be built. Not only does it provide the picture quality required for programmes such as drama, natural history and sport, but it also offers superb multi-generation editing performance for complex productions.

Audio performance for the new digital broadcast era
For multi-lingual or surround sound applications, there is often the need to record more than the usual four channels of digital audio common to most devices. With the ability to switch between 4 channels of 48kHz AES/EBU digital audio at 24 bit resolution, or 8 channels at 16 bits, you can optimise the audio quality and number of channels for each programme production.

Widescreen operation for future-proof recordings
With widescreen production now the norm rather than the exception, the ability to record 4:3 or 16:9 pictures - automatically - ensures a long shelf-life for your programme.

Easy migration from existing infrastructures
You can replay all your existing Betacam, Betacam SP, Betacam SX and Digital Betacam cassettes into a 50Mb/s MPEG-2 digital environment, generating continued revenue from archived material. Compatible replay of Betacam SX tapes brings the option of incorporating Betacam SX material into your 50Mb/s MPEG-2 programme.

Peace of mind even for the toughest operating environments
Betacam SP, Betacam SX and Digital Betacam recorders are in continuous use feeding thousands of “on-air” channels 24 hours a day. You can relax in the knowledge that the same meticulous design standards have been built into MPEG IMX Studio Recorders.

Familiar operation and design
Retraining technical and operational people can be a time-consuming business. The operational controls and mechanical design of the
MSW-M2000P/1 have been derived from existing recorders such as Digital Betacam, and will be familiar to your technical and creative colleagues.

Big reductions in the cost of maintaining your current edit suites
Users everywhere are looking to reduce the long-term cost of running analogue edit suites. With the MSW-M2000P/1, cost reductions can be realised from day one. Not only do MSW-2000P/1 Series machines offer stunning picture and sound performance, but the rotary video heads cost significantly less and are quicker to replace than those on your Betacam VTRs.

Freedom to mix and match products from all your favourite suppliers
All the video interfaces you expect from a broadcast recorder are provided as standard on the MSW-M2000P/1. Additionally you can transfer MPEG-2 data at 50Mb/s without signal degradation via the Serial Data Transport Interface – Content Package (SDTI-CP). This interface is common to a wide range of products from many manufacturers, so you can easily integrate the MSW-M2000P/1 into your current or new system with total confidence.
525/625 switchable for international operations.
Material can be recorded and replayed by the MSW-M2000P/1 in 525 or 625 mode, and your 525 and 625 Betacam, Betacam SP, Betacam SX and Digial Betacam tapes can be replayed.

Uncompromised editing performance.
Betacam-family VTRs have been setting the standard for fast accurate linear editing for many years, and we have incorporated all your favourite features into the MSW-M2000P/1. That means: assemble editing; insert of video and any of the eight channels of audio independently, editing to +/- 0 frame accuracy, pre-read, variable speed replay from –1 to +3, superb jog audio performance and picture search at up to 78 times normal speed.

Streamlined design for installation where space is limited.
The MSW-M2000P/1 measures just four rack units in height – a reduction of 20% compared with conventional Betacam SP VTRs. That’s especially useful for installation into Outside Broadcast vehicles or smaller edit suites.

Easy integration into your existing Sony Cart system.
You don’t need to replace your existing Sony LMS and Flexicart to migrate your operation to MPEG-2. The MSW-M2000P/1 can be installed at minimum cost, bringing the peace of mind of ½-inch linear “on-air” operation without the need for a painfully large investment.

“Shot Mark” system to speed up the editing process.
The MSW-M2000P/1 can recognise “Shot Marks” on an MPEG IMX and Betacam SX cassette. These marks can be added by the camera operator during shooting, and are used to indicate which shots are "good" or "bad". This allows the editor to quickly locate good material on a cassette, to really speed up post-production.

Memory Stick slot for rapid configuration.
A Memory Stick slot is located at the front of the MSW-M2000P/1. This new feature can be used to store the operational set-up parameters of the machine. This feature can be especially useful where a large number of machines have to be configured identically, perhaps at a hire company where recorders need to be configured back to default settings upon return from hire to customers.

Lossless transfer of MPEG-2 data via the Serial Data Transport Interface – Content Package (SDTI-CP)
The Serial Digital Transport Interface – Content Package (SDTI-CP) lets you transfer
MPEG-2 4:2:2P@ML data at 50Mbps Intra-frame between recording devices without any degradation of picture quality. Furthermore, SDTI-CP has been standardised by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) as SMPTE 326M, and its use is becoming widespread.

Longest ever record duration from a Sony ½” broadcast recorder.
The MSW-M2000P/1 provides a record duration of up to 220 minutes on a single cassette. This provides the duration necessary for long productions, and makes MPEG IMX great for the distribution of feature films. No other ½” broadcast recorder from Sony has ever offered this duration of recording. Even with a small cassette, up to 71 minutes of material can be recorded.

Metadata ready.
The use of metadata is set to revolutionise the generation, storage and management of programme content. The MSW-M2000P/1 has been designed to operate in the broadcast systems of today and tomorrow, and space has been reserved within the recording format for the storage of metadata. Furthermore, metadata (UMID) can be input and output from the MSW-M2000P/1 via the SDI and SDTI-CP interfaces, and can be read via the 9-pin connector.

High-speed data transfer from MPEG IMX cassettes.
High-speed transfer of data from MPEG IMX cassettes was an optional feature in the MSW-M2000P. With the new MSW-M2000P/1, this feature is provided as standard, bringing increased efficiency to the programme production process.

Easy maintenance

Most of the circuitry of MPEG IMX VTRs is arranged on plug-in boards to allow quick and easy maintenance. The drum assembly has been designed for simple, low-cost maintenance by adopting the upper drum mechanism and an auto adjustment function used in BETACAM SX  TRs. This helps to drastically reduce the frequency of periodic scanner replacement.
