High-speed, High-capacity Removable Storage
The SRMASTER Series adopts the SRMemory card as its recording media. SRMemory cards are unique in the industry for achieving a guaranteed read/write speed of up to 5 Gbps, and offering a storage capacity of up to 1 TB, all within an exceptionally small, light-weight form factor. Unlike other general purpose IT memory cards and SSDs, SRMemory card guarantees the data throughput thanks to Sony's proprietary memory control algorithm. With this extreme recording/playback capability, SRMemory cards are ideal storage devices for applications including 3D production and high frame rate 4K digital cinematography. A single SRMemory card can simultaneously record up to three 3D camera rigs and stunt replay from any one of them.
Mastering Quality Files
SRMASTER products employ the MPEG-4 SStP (Simple Studio Profile) image compression scheme that's also used by the HDCAM SR VTR product range. Fully tested and proven, SStP is an intra-frame/field visually lossless compression algorithm that records 10-bit or 12-bit RGB or 10-bit 4:2:2 image files which can be edited natively by many leading nonlinear editing platforms.
As well as existing SR-HQ (880-Mbps) and SR-SQ (440 Mbps) modes, SRMASTER products support an additional compression level called SR-Lite (220 Mbps at 1080/59i) to serve HDTV programme production. Up to 16 channels of uncompressed audio tracks and associated metadata can be recorded, all wrapped in an industry-standard MXF wrapper.
The SRMemory card has a powerful built-in data salvage system which means that precious images and data can be retrieved in the event of memory chip failure caused, for example, by power loss.*
* In some instances, it may not be possible to restore images recorded just before an accident. No warranty is given on always achieving content restoration.
MPEG-4 Simple Studio Profile
The SR-R1000 offers outstanding picture quality by incorporating Sony's industry-standard HDCAM-SR codec, the MPEG-4 Simple Studio Profile (SStP). A variety of operating levels are supported from SR-Lite (220 Mbps), and SR-SQ (440 Mbps), up to SR-HQ (880 Mbps). Both 4:2:2 (10-bit) and RGB 4:4:4 (10-bit and 12-bit) recording are supported.
4 x Dual-stream Channels
The SR-R1000 comes as standard in a 1-Out configuration, and can be expanded to handle up to four channels in flexible configurations – 3-In/1-Out, 2-In/2-Out, 1-In/3-Out, or 4-Out – by installing optional SRK-R201 or SRK-R202 Input/Output boards.Each A/V channel of the SR-R1000 is designed to handle up to dual-stream video, which allows users to record and playback one pair of 3D stereoscopic signals or key/fill signals just with one A/V channel.All four A/V channels can be operated simultaneously, thanks to high-speed SRMemory cards. This increases productivity during live operation and post-production.
Powerful Stereoscopic 3D Operation – 1080P 3D
The SR-R1000 brings a new 3D production level to live operation and post-production. Each A/V channel of the SR-R1000 comes equipped with a dual-link 3G-SDI interface, making 3D stereoscopic production easier and more affordable. The SR-R1000 can handle up to four channels of 1080p 3D signals, or RGB 4:4:4 3D signals.
Multi-format - 1280x720, 1920x1080, 2048x1080/1556
Building on the extraordinary multi-format recording capability of HDCAM-SR VTRs, the SR-R1000 supports the following formats: 1280x720/4:2:2, 1920x1080/4:2:2, 1920x1080/4:4:4 and 2048x1080/4:4:4.
When configured to handle four streams of HD/2K signal, the SR-R1000 can record and playback 4K images (3840x2160, 4096x2160) over quad HD-SDI or quad 3G-SDI. Playback while recording is supported even in 4K operation.
Each A/V channel supports 16-channel uncompressed digital audio (24-bit, 48 kHz/96 kHz*), along with a split-edit capability for audio and video.
* Supports 8-channel audio in case of 96kHz.
4TB Removable Storage
The SR-R1000 has four slots for removable SRMemory cards. Each slot can be loaded with a 256 GB, 512 GB, or 1 TB memory card, providing up to 4 TB of storage capacity. As soon as, for example, a live event finishes, you can instantly eject the SRMemory cards to take to the postproduction facility - no more wasting time waiting for data to off-load.
The SR-R1000 has a network file transfer capability over two Gigabit Ethernet ports (GbE), and supports FTP-protocol file transfer in the MXF (MPEG4 SStP) format. 10GbE option is also available.
Versatile Control Protocol
The SR-R1000 can be fully controlled by switcher and slow-motion controllers, separately for each A/V channel. The system is compatible with the most popular control protocols such as Sony's VTR/Disc protocol and VDCP . When working in a live operation or post-production environment with MVS switchers, the SR-R1000 can be used as a 2D/3D clip feeder, synchronized key/fill source, graphics feeder, or temporary buffer for compositing.
