Sony’s PMW-EX1 XDCAM and BVM-L230 LCD

Quality HD for the rest of us

Finally, a true 1920x1080 HD camera for less than $7,000! The catch...

It’s file-based.

On January 25 a large crowd convened at AlphaDogs in Burbank, to learn all about handling EX file ingest from SxS PRO memory cards and XDCAM Blu-ray optical discs, managing data workflows, and learning the tricks of editing XDCAM on Avid and Final Cut Pro systems. The event was a great chance to see how an affordable HD image can also be astonishingly good looking and actually useable in post.

As an added bonus, the folks from Sony showed-off their high-end LCD monitor, the BVM-L230. Learn more about it here.
