This format employs MPEG-4 video encoding at 1.5 Mbit/s (CIF resolution) with 64 kbit/s (8 k Hz A-law, ISDN-quality) for each audio channel.
A by big, we mean 1000 singles, couples and swingers all getting naked and having sex while others watch.
In 2008, Sony introduced a new recording medium to their XDCAM range – Sx S Pro (pronounced "S-by-S").
It is a solid-state memory card implemented as an Express Card module.
The discs are reliable and robust, suitable for field work (something which has previously been a problem with many disc-based systems).
Additionally, the cost of media is comparable to existing professional formats.
This unit is designed to have the same performance as the Sx S Pro card however its life expectancy is shorter at an estimated 5 years of life when used every day to the card's full capacity. These have a 1.2 Gbit/s read and write speed to support the PMW-F55 in storing 4K 60p acquisition.
