Sony HD Demystified

VTR Demonstrations and Q&A

Sure, you can hit play — anyone can do that. But can you configure the deck to downconvert from 1080/23.98 to 30i with a 30-frame TC window and a 24-frame TC window? With a client watching and the session clock ticking? Do you know how to reset the deck to the proper HD format that your tapes were recoded at? Guests at the August 2006 Editors' Lounge do!

Not all were "doing HD" yet, but they expected to, so guests to this month's Editors' Lounge met the experts from Sony who showed them the ins and outs of their HD VTR5. Guests brought all their burning questions because this hands-on opportunity doesn't come around very often.
