Playback capability of DV(25 Mb/s) format recorded tapes
The DSR-2000AP has an excellent playback compatibility with all DV family formats (25 Mbps) including consumer DV-LP. This includes DVCPRO. Tapes of all these formats can be played back in the DSR-2000AP without any special mechanical adapter or menu selection.

Excellent Digital Slow Motion
The DSR-2000AP boasts excellent, noiseless, slow motion within the range of ?E to +1 times normal playback speed, in increments of 1%. This range is effective for all DV formats (25Mbps) - DV, DV-LP, DVCAM and DVCPRO.

Excellent Digital Jog Sound
The DSR-2000AP offers excellently smooth and clear performance of jog sound within the range of ?E to +1 times normal playback speed, just like an analogue VTR. This allows easier searching for editing points especially within interviews. This is available for all DV formats (25Mbps) - DV, DV-LP, DVCAM and DVCPRO.

Improvement of multi-generation dubbing quality
Due to a newly developed filter colour blurring during baseband dubbing (e.g. SDI or analogue component) has been significantly reduced.

16:9 Aspect Ratio
Pictures recorded in a 16:9 aspect ratio include a wide aspect ID located in the VITC. The DSR-2000AP can record or erase this ID. For example, if you don?t want this ID signal to appear on a TV display, this ID can be erased. If the video signal passes through an editing or effects system this ID signal is often removed. The DSR-2000AP can re-record it.

Timecode
The DSR-2000AP supports not only LTC timecode conforming to the EBU format but also Vertical Interval Time Code (VITC) through all video signal interfaces. VITC enables video and timecode signals to be copied with just a single BNC cable via either the composite or SDI interfaces. It also allows users to record other timecode data in the auxiliary data area of the VITC which is especially helpful for off-line editing.

VTR-to-VTR Editing with Jog/Shuttle Dial
The DSR-2000AP incorporates a built-in Jog/Shuttle dial in its front panel, which allows direct two machine editing (without remote controller) to make 'cut' editing more convenient.

ClipLink
The DSR-2000AP supports the ClipLink function. Being integrated into a NLE system with Sony EditStations, the DSR-2000AP plays an active role by sending the ClipLink information data onto the EditStations to provide great efficiency through the whole editing process. Also, the DSR-2000AP has a capability of full tape dubbing with ClipLink Log Data either through i.LINK or a combination of SDTI (QSDI) + RS-422A.

Internal Signal Generator
The DSR-2000AP incorporates an internal signal generator. This generates either colour bars (100% or 75%) or black /burst signals for video and a 1 kHz tone or silence for audio. This function is convenient for recording a pre-striped tape prior to editing.

Reduction of mosaic noise in panning pictures
By improving the DCT motion detector, the DSR-2000AP offers improvements in the picture quality especially when viewing panning pictures.

Picture quality in Slow motion
Employing the same Y-Add filter as that been used in Digital Betacam or Betacam SX VTRs, the DSR-2000AP offers smooth digital slow motion picture by greatly reducing vertical jitter. This ability of the DSR-2000AP is particularly apparent in the range of less than 1times normal speed.

Automatic DV format change
The DSR-2000AP automatically detects DV, DVCAM and DVCPRO tape formats.

Playback of three sizes of DV, DVCAM and DVCPRO cassettes
The DV formats include not only DVCAM and DV but also the DVCPRO format. Three cassette sizes utilised for these formats. All these tapes can be played back in the DSR-2000AP without any special mechanical adapter.

No need to dub up to other higher formats, which is often required on other DV VTRs
The editing functions such as digital slow motion, jog audio and DMC are all available for all DV tape formats. Superb jog audio lets you easily handle all the DV tape formats as direct editing sources. This means that, even when using DV or DVCPRO recorded tapes as editing sources, there is no need to dub to other, higher, formats.

Highly durable playback performance for all DV (25 Mbps) recorded tapes
The DSR-2000AP plays all DV (25 Mbps) recorded tapes including DV in long play mode (DV-LP). No other DV VTR provides DV-LP playback compatibility. The DSR-2000AP does by virtue of its ability to read data from tapes without having to maintain tracking. This function is also excellent for rescuing badly recorded DV, DVCAM and DVCPRO tapes. In this sense, the DSR-2000AP is the most reliable VTR for all DV recorded tapes.

The wide aspect ID (16:9) can be recorded or erased
Pictures recorded in a 16:9 aspect ratio include a wide aspect ID located in the VITC. The DSR-2000AP can record or erase this ID. For example, if you don?t want this ID signal to appear on a TV display, this ID can be erased. If the video signal passes through an editing or effects system this ID signal is often removed. The DSR-2000AP can re-record it.

Minimised video degradation
Due to a newly developed filter colour blurring during baseband dubbing (e.g. SDI or analogue component) has been significantly reduced.

Save editing time
Until now frame delays in all DV VTRs have made audio dubbing very difficult. However, due to newly developed digital processing and pre-read technology the DSR-2000AP has achieved the perfect synchronisation of video and audio.

No Generator required to record a pre-striped tape
The DSR-2000AP incorporates an internal signal generator. This generates either colour bars (100% or 75%) or black /burst signals for video and a 1 kHz tone or silence for audio. This function is convenient for recording a pre-striped tape prior to editing.

Easy to locate target point
The DSR-2000AP incorporates a built-in Jog/Shuttle dial on its front panel. This enables highly responsive operation, especially when searching for editing points.

Channel condition indicator gives you piece of mind
For ensuring reliable editing conditions, the DSR-2000AP is equipped with a channel condition monitoring function. Three levels of error rate are indicated with a tri-colour (G/Y/R) indicator. This is effective for all DV formats (25Mbps).
