Records and Plays Standard DV and Mini-DV Tapes, and Plays DVCAM Tapes
The AG-DV2500 records and plays both standard DV and Mini-DV cassettes. It can
record for up to 276 minutes on a standard DV cassette (AY-DV276MQ).
DV (IEEE1394) Digital Input/Output
The AG-DV2500 is equipped with an IEEE1394-compliant 4-pin DV terminal. This
makes a host of operations possible, including synchronized recording with a
DV camera-recorder, digital dubbing with a DV recorder, uploading to the PC
in a nonlinear editing system, and downloading after editing.
The AG-DV2500 is equipped with a 9-Pin RS-422A interface. This lets you operate
the AG-DV2500 using an RS-422A remote controller such as the AJ-A95 or an editing
controller such as the AG-A850.
Compatible with Both NTSC and PAL
The AG-DV2500 automatically detects and plays DV footage recorded in NTSC or
PAL, making it easy to upload footage to a nonlinear editing system. The AG-DV2500
can also record in either NTSC or PAL mode; simply set the switch on the rear
panel to the mode desired. Recording onto standard DV and Mini-DV cassettes
is possible in both formats.
