QVC To Install Sony Optical Decks

QVC will install Sony’s XDCAM HD422 PDW-HD1500 optical decks in its control room as part of its upgrade to tapeless HD production.

The multimedia retailer will use the decks to enhance control-room operations, primarily for production of its live broadcast.

QVC says the PDW-HD1500 decks will allow its 50 operators to seamlessly transition from the remaining Digital Betacam equipment currently in use at its Studio Park headquarters in West Chester, Pa.

Sony technology currently in use at QVC includes HDC-1500 HD multiformat studio cameras, an MVS-8000A production switcher, and XDCAM HD camcorders in its mobile-production vehicle.
