HDTVs high resolution necessitates large amounts of storage capacity. The MP2-HDs MPEG2 compression helps to preserve the video image quality while significantly reducing storage requirements. The MP2-HD is housed in a compact 3U chassis with up to two internal hard drives. It can store up to 192 minutes of high definition video at 100 Mbits/sec internally. The optional external drive unit adds practically unlimited storage capacity. The MP2-HD easily exceeds the storage capacity of HD tape recorders.
The MP2-HDs digital disk technology provides an ideal video source for the new high-resolution projectors and displays. Compared to tape based machines digital disk technology offers higher reliability and continuous playback of full-length features as well as instant locate and instant play capability. Video clips and play lists can be easily created with the MP2-HD.
The advanced recording capability of the MP2-HD makes it more than just a playback device. The MP2-HD records one channel of video, up to 8 channels of analog or AES/EBU audio and time code simultaneously. HDTV formats supported include 720p, 1080i, 1080 24p and 24sf. The MP2-HD can be controlled via its two RS-422 ports, 100BaseT Ethernet or its front panel, which includes a jog/shuttle wheel and an optional video monitoring display. Video inputs and outputs include analog Y Pb Pr video and optional high-definition serial digital video (HD-SDI).
