SONY DVW A510P / TTV3453
Used Sony DVW-A510P (DVWA510P) Digital Betacam edit player with RS-422 control and analogue betacam playback

To provide a smooth transition from analog operations to those based on digital technology, Sony developed the DVW-A510P Player, one of a range of Digital BETACAM VTRs. The DVW-A510P inherits the Betacam concept of an affordable workhorse format, but adds many advantages made possible by the use of innovative digital technologies.

The DVW-A510P provides the superb picture quality and multi-generation performance of component digital recording in a compact VTR, with cassette tapes which are the same size as those of analog Betacam machines. Integrating this digital technology into the post-production process at the same time as providing compatibility with existing component analog camcorders and tape archives, gives users a significant return on investment.

With outstanding performance and a whole host of functions, the DVW-A510P offers real advantages to satisfy the needs of the television and associated industries.
