HDCAM-SR is a HDTV broadcast codec that has recently transitioned from tape to file-based workflow.
With HDCAM-SR, Sony also introduces new HQ 4:4:4 mode for maximum quality, and new SR Lite mode, a lower bandwidth variant.
Vendor: Sony Models: SRW-9000, CineAlta F23, CineAlta F35, PMW-F3, always with a HDCAM-SR recorder (portable or desktop) Status: Treasured version 3 detects and previews HDCAM-SR recorded by those cameras.
HDCAM-SR footage is stored in MXF files.
Treasured (since version 3) can detect HDCAM-SR footage in recovered files (regardless of extension), in cards and in hard disks.
For preview, please verify if you have installed the necessary software.
HDCAM-SR flavors supported as of 2014:
- HDCAM-SR 444 HQ
- HDCAM-SR 444
- HDCAM-SR 422
- HDCAM-SR 422 Lite
We have successfully repaired HDCAM-SR footage by developing specific Repair Kits:
- Repaired Videos have same quality as originally recorded
- Repaired Videos come in same MXF containers as normal footage, and are compatible with production workflow
HDCAM-SR repairs are available through our Production HQ plans.
