Sony XDS-PD2000 XDCAM Deck Professional Disc drive
The Sony XDS-PD2000 supports the operation of all SxS card types, including Memory Stick and SDHC cards, using MEAD adaptors. It also supports all XDCAM Professional Disc models in all recording formats and modes. The internal 512GB Solid State Drive (SSD) and the 1Gigabit Ethernet connection allow a total of about 16 hours of continuous recording in HD422 50Mbps and multi-user simultaneous access to the AV content.
Hybrid XDCAM workflow
The Sony XDS-PD2000 XDCAM Station is a professional media station with a 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 operations, networking, and other IT functions. Adding the XDCAM Station to an XDCAM workflow makes file-based operation much more convenient and efficient.
