Some information needs to be updated, we will do it soon.

Please accept our apologies for not having up-to-date information about this topic.

Nevertheless, we keep offering repair services for this type of damaged footage — with same level of quality as ever — and we will continue to do so in the future.

HDCAM-SR is a HDTV broadcast codec that has transitioned from tape to file-based workflow.
With HDCAM-SR, Sony also introduces HQ 4:4:4 mode for maximum quality, and 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 detects and previews HDCAM-SR recorded by those cameras.

Note that those cameras are also capable of recording in other formats like Sony RAW or MPEG2 HD422 and also work with ProRes recorders through HDMI and 3G HD-SDI output.
