The compact design makes the J-30 ideal for personal, desk-top use. It has all the features required for viewing, logging and feeding material to a non-linear editing system. The J-30 Compact Player can replay Digital Betacam, MPEG IMX, Betacam SX, Betacam SP and Betacam tapes and has i-Link, analogue composite and component, S-VHS and analogue audio outputs.
This machine is the first in a line-up to improve the flexibility, and seriously reduce the cost, of transferring your HDCAM rushes to your on line suite. This is achieved by a unique combination of small size (same as J series) combined with every useful connection from downconverted SDI, analogue standard definition to i-Link. A downconverter is included as standard, and it can handle both large and small HDCAM cassettes at 24PsF, 25PsF or 29.97PsF. 24PsF recorded tapes can also be played back at 25P with time code conversion.
