HDCAM SR was introduced in 2003. It uses a higher density tape and is capable of recording in 10 bits 4:2:2 or 4:4:4 RGB with a video bitrate of 440 Mbit/s. The increased bitrate (over HDCAM) allows HDCAM SR to capture much more of the full bandwidth of the HDSDI signal (1920 x 1080). Some HDCAM SR VTRs can also use a 2x mode with an even higher video bitrate of 880 Mbit/s, allowing for a single 4:4:4 stream at a lower compression or two 4:2:2 video streams simultaneously.
Digitizing World has the high-end decks and VTRs to transfer your HDCAM SR tapes to the best quality Apple ProRes or mp4 files for hard drive storage. We can also produce DVDs or Blu-ray discs.
