The MSW-M2000/M2000P and MSW-A2000/A2000P MPEG IMX recorders have an SDTI-CP interface in addition to conventional digital and analog inputs/outputs. SDTI-CP is an industry standardized, open, interoperable interface that is defined by SMPTE 326M. With SDTI-CP I/O, the MPEG Elementary Stream can be interfaced to compatible products from several different manufacturers without the need of decoding/encoding. There are a number of SDTI-CP equipped non-linear editors and servers available from leading manufactures, including Sony, to give you the best possible choice. With MPEG IMX equipment, there is no barrier keeping you in a closed world. Rather, you can enjoy the unlimited open MPEG World, and its freedom to choose equipment from world-leading manufacturers.
