The PMW-EX30 expands the XDCAM EX product range by offering a compact recorder which in many ways operates in the same way as a traditional tape-based VTR, with many analogue and digital video interfaces along with the newer IT based interfaces such as USB and i.LINK. The product therefore can operate in either video or IT mode depending the customer's requirements.
The deck also offers a wide array of recording formats for multiple content creation applications. Recording mode is switchable between 1920 x 1080, 1280 x 720, and 1440 x 1080 resolutions. Frame rate is also selectable from interlace and progressive - 59.94i, 50i and native 23.98P*.
In addition, 59.94P and 50P progressive recording is available in 1280 x 720 mode. The SxS PRO memory card can simultaneously hold multiple files of any of these recording formats, allowing for flexible use of the memory card.
*In 1440 x 1080/23.98P (SP) mode, images are handled as 23.98P and recorded as 59.94i signals through means of 2-3 pull-down.
