The J-30SDI is a video tape player only for the entire range of Betacam-derived ½-inch formats. Those formats include Betacam, Beta SP, Beta SX, MPEG/IMX and Digital Betacam. The players work with both NTSC and PAL recorded elements. To fit into modern edit suites and production facilities, the unit outputs iLink which is Sony's version of FireWire, along with uncompressed SDI video for the highest quality standard definition video available.

Digital Video Outputs Even From Analog Source Material

Just because the production world has almost completely gone digital (film productions does still exist) doesn't mean that analog source video is obsolete. The J-30SDI takes Beta Oxide and SP analog recordings and outputs them via either FireWire or SDI, depending on what your NLE system can accept. The remaining Beta formats remain digital at all times. The machine also outputs time-code signals independently for the analog formats.

Audio Output

The J-30SDI can access all 4 channels of audio native to the 1/2-inch Beta family of professional formats. The user may select any 2 at one time, channel 1 or 2, and channel 3 or 4. These selections control the headphone output also
