The Sony SRW-1 HD Portable Digital Video Recorder and SRPC-1 HD Video Processor used together form a full-bandwidth 4:4:4 (RGB) portable VTR system that adopts the HDCAM-SR format. It offers visually lossless 1080-line high-definition recordings at multiple frame rates on HDCAM-SR tape media, and greatly enhances shooting operations in field production applications due to its stunning picture quality and portable size. The SRW-1/SRPC-1 portable VTR system can connect to a variety of cameras including the F5 and the F film-style digital cinematography cameras.

The SRPC-1 processor unit, specially designed for the SRW-1, provides a variety of video-processing functions and houses an array of input and output connectors, including HD/SD signals, 1 channel of digital audio, and 4 channels of analog audio. Its processing functions include the easy handling of pull-down insertions, down conversion, and RGB 4:4:4 to Y/Cb/Cr 4:: color-space conversion. Furthermore, with the addition of the optional HKSR-10 board, the SRW-1/SRPC-1 provides a powerful new feature called SR Motion™, which includes various distinctive recording modes such as Select FPS and Interval Frames.
