DSR-11 DVCAM Digital Videocassette Recorder, with
its unique design and small footprint, can be
easily integrated into your existing nonlinear
editing system. Providing basic VTR features,
along with an i.LINK interface and NTSC/PAL
compatibility, this VTR provides a highly
powerful, yet cost-effective option for nonlinear
The DSR-11 uses the DVCAM format, the professional extension of the worldwide standard DV format. The DVCAM format uses 8-bit digital component recording with a 5:1 compression ratio and a sampling rate of 4:1:1 (for NTSC) / 4:2:0 (for PAL). The unique compression algorithm provides excellent picture quality and superb multi-generation performance. It also offers superior digital audio performance, providing a wide dynamic range and excellent signal-to-noise ratio that are comparable to CD quality. Alternative audio channel modes can be selected: a two-channel mode with 48 kHz/16-bit recording or a four-channel mode with 32 kHz/12-bit recording.
DVCAM cassette tapes are available in two sizes: standard and mini. The standard-size DVCAM cassette provides a recording time of up to 184 minutes, while the mini-size cassette provides up to 40 minutes.
The DSR-11 is capable of recording and playing back DV format tapes (SP mode only). The standard-size cassette can record for up to 270 minutes, while the mini-size cassette records for 60 minutes.
The DSR-11 has the unique feature of being NTSC/PAL compatible. It can record and playback tapes with either color system. The DSR-11 does not convert signals from NTSC to PAL, or vice versa. When recording through the analog input, the switch on the rear panel must be manually set to the color system of the original source.
The DSR-11 is equipped with a 4-pin i.LINK connection. This connection allows easy duplication of entire tapes as well as one-cable digital transfer of audio, video and command signals to a connected VTR or PC. When downloading video via the i.LINK connection, you can also copy the timecode from a non-VTR source, such as video that has been edited on a PC.
Signals from analog input can be converted into digital signals, and can be simultaneously output from the i.LINK connector.
The DSR-11 has a unique design. With its small footprint, you can unobtrusively add the DSR-11 to your existing work environment - placing it either horizontally or vertically.
When set to Auto Repeat, the DSR-11 can repeatedly play back a program. Just after the DSR-11 reaches the end of the tape, the first complete blank portion, or the first index point, it automatically rewinds and repeats playback of the segment.
