Sony HVR-M35U COMPACT HDV - Videocassette Recorder
The HVR-M35U supports Sony's new Native Progressive format recording. The HVR-M35U records and plays back HDV 1080i60, 1080i50, 1080p30, 1080p25, 1080p24, and DV/DVCAM 480i60, 576i50. Like the HVR-M25U, the new HVR-M35U is NTSC / PAL switchable. The HVR-M35U also offers 4CH audio recording and playback, and can record HDV 4CH audio signals from the i.LINK input. Additionally, the HVR-M35U offers an integral monaural speaker for convenient audio monitoring, capable of playing back a mixed audio signal. The HVR-M35U also offers various digital interfaces which include i.LINK for DV/DVCAM and HDV I/O, a dual function HD/SD SDI output connector, as well as AES/EBU BNC connectors. TC OUT is also supplied via a BNC connector. In addition to it's compact design, other features this new deck shares with the HVR-M25U is a ClearPhoto LCD plus 2.7-inch (viewable area, measured diagonally) 16:9 panel for video monitoring, as well as support of both mini and standard size video tape cassettes. The HVR-M35U also incorporates the Duplicate Plus feature for operational convenience similar to that offered in the HVR-M25U, with the added integration of the new Native Progressive recording formats. Like the HVR-M25U, the new HVR-M35U also offers 1080i to 720p conversion capabilities (through the analog component and SDI outputs only), as well as HD to SD downconversion.
The deck is capable of playing back DV, DVCAM and HDV signals for added versatility. It can convert a 1080i signal to 720p for broadcast delivery along with down conversion to standard definition. Options for down conversion include edge-cropping, digitally stretching the image, or letterbox adjustments.
Footage can be viewed directly with the HVR-M35U's on board LCD screen which doubles as an on-board menu system. The high contrast 2.7" panel is located directly below the tape transport for easy access and monitoring.
Extended Record Times
The deck can support standard size cassettes for extended record times. Archiving and long run time projects can be recorded with ease. Record up to 276 minutes of HDV or DV footage and up to 184 of DVCAM footage on one tape.
The VTR can move between recording NTSC and PAL standard definition signals. This added flexibility can be important when mastering for different regions.
Presentations will benefit from the auto-repeat function. The deck will automatically start a video over again when this option is on. Simply set the deck up and let it do the rest.
Downconvert over Multiple Outputs
The HVR-M35U can down-convert HDV to standard definition a variety of different ways, including i.LINK, SD-SDI, component, S-Video and composite outputs.
