Therefore, even when playing back between shooting sessions, there is no danger of inadvertently overwriting the previous recording. • Immediately after recording, you can delete clips you decide not to keep, allowing efficient use of the available disc capacity. • During playback, you can check the recorded video and audio by viewing thumbnail images of clips on the disc and jumping instantly to the first frames of other clips. • The i.LINK 1) (FAM (File Access Mode)) function allows you to transfer clip files by connecting a computer, or by connecting the unit to a network with the CBK-NC01 Network Adaptor (option). 1) i.LINK is a trademark of Sony Corporation. Picture cache recording Video and audio for a maximum of 10 seconds is always held in memory, so that when you start recording, it is possible to record from just before the REC START button was pressed. Time-lapse video (intermittent recording) function You can record video intermittently, capturing any number of frames at any desired time interval. Proxy AV data • Proxy AV data is low-resolution data with a video bandwidth of 1.5 Mbps and an audio bandwidth of 64 Kbps per channel. This unit records proxy AV data on the Professional Disc whenever MPEG IMX or DVCAM format data is recorded on the main channel. • Proxy AV data is much smaller in size than the full resolution IMX or DVCAM data. It can be transferred quickly over computer networks, easily edited in the field with laptop computers, and readily used in a wide variety of applications, such as content management on small-scale servers. Wide range of metadata recording In addition to video and audio, various types of additional information can be recorded on the Professional Disc 1) as metadata. • Essence marks can be added to mark important locations in the video and audio data. Essence marks can be added manually at any frame by pressing the lens RET button or an assignable button. They can also be added automatically at locations where there is a sudden change in luminance or audio input above a specified threshold. • The supplied logging software can be used to add titles, comments, and other text data to clips. • Computer-readable text files can be recorded on the Professional Disc to enable systematic content management. The ability to search metadata for the required audio and video scenes brings greater efficiency to various stages of the video production process, such as editing, and archiving. 1) Professional Disc is a trademark of Sony Corporation. Thumbnail search Thumbnail images of the clips on the disc can be displayed on the LCD panel and in the viewfinder by pressing the THUMBNAIL button. They can also be shown in external video output. You can check the content of a clip simply by moving the cursor to its thumbnail and pressing the play button. Scene selection You can create and play back clip lists of selected clips from the disc, arranged in any order. One disc can store up to 99 clip lists. Clip lists make it simple to perform offline editing in the field for later use with full-scale nonlinear editing systems (XPRI 1), etc.). 1) XPRI is a trademark of Sony Corporation. High reliability under tough operating conditions With resistance to vibration and dust comparable to tape C based camcorders, this unit can be relied on just like a h a conventional unit. p t e r 1 O 1-1-4 Inputs and Outputs v e r v i e w Range of audio inputs and outputs • A super-cardioid directional monaural microphone with external power supply is supplied as standard equipment.

Formatting is completed and the message “COMPLETE” appears. 3-1-6 Handling of Discs When Recording Does Not End Normally (Salvage Function) Recording processing does not end normally if, for example, the battery pack is removed during recording, or if the power cord is disconnected during recording. Because the file system is not updated, video and audio data recorded in real time is not recognized as files and clip contents recorded up to that point are lost. 3-1 Handling Discs 47 However, this unit has a salvage function which can hold losses to the minimum by reconstructing clips on such discs. Note that no recorded clip contents are lost when the POWER switch is turned off and when battery exhaustion is detected, because the unit does not enter power saving mode until after the end of recording processing. Notes • Do not disconnect the battery pack or power cord until recording processing has finished and the ACCESS indicator has gone out. • This function salvages as much recorded material as C possible after an unforeseen accident, but 100% h a p restoration cannot be guaranteed. t e r • Even when this function is used, it is not possible to 3 R recover data from immediately before the interruption of e c recording. The amount of data lost is as follows. o r d i - Quick salvage: From 2 to 4 seconds of data before the n g a interruption of recording. n d - Full salvage: From 4 to 6 seconds of data before the P l a interruption of recording. y b a More data may be lost when functions such as Picture c k Cache and Interval Rec are being used. Quick salvage When the unit is powered on again after a recording interruption due to a power interruption, with the disc still loaded in the unit, clips are reconstructed on the basis of backup data stored in nonvolatile memory and markers recorded on the disc. Processing time is about 5 seconds. Full salvage When recording on an XDCAM device is interrupted because of a power interruption, and a disc is manually ejected from that device with the power off, clips are reconstructed on the basis of markers recorded on the disc when the disc is loaded in this unit. Therefore, processing takes longer than for a quick salvage (about 30 seconds, although it depends on the state of the disc). Proceed as follows to perform a full salvage. 1 Insert the disc on which recording did not end normally. The following salvage message appears. SALVAGE TO RECORD ON THE DISC, IT IS NECESSARY TO EXECUTE SALVAGE. SALVAGE OK? YES NO 48 3-1 Handling Discs 2 Turn the MENU knob to move the b mark to YES, then press the MENU knob. Salvage processing starts, and the message “EXECUTING.” appears. A results message appears when the processing finishes. • If the salvage succeeded, the message “COMPLETED.” appears. • If the salvage failed, the message “INCOMPLETED.” appears. Clips for which recording did not end normally are lost. To exit without salvaging Select NO in step 2 to exit without performing salvage processing. However, the status of the disc does not change. Salvage is still required to recover the clips for which recording did not end normally. The salvage message will appear again when that disc is inserted again, or when the camcorder is powered on again. Note If salvage processing is not done, sections which were recorded normally can be played back, but no new recording can be done on the disc. 3-2 Recording 3-2-1 Basic Procedures This section describes the basic procedures for shooting and recording. Before a shooting session, ensure that the camcorder is functioning properly. For details, see 10-1 “Testing the Camcorder Before Shooting” on page 181.

If you stop recording within 2 seconds of starting, this results in a 2-second clip. If you stop recording and restart within 2 seconds of the original start, this creates a single continuous clip from the original start time. • The maximum number of clips that can be recorded on a single disc is 300. If an attempt is made to record more than 300 clips, the error message “DISC FULL!” appears, even if there is free capacity on the disc. Playback control buttons During recording, the playback control buttons (EJECT, F REV, F FWD, NEXT, PREV, PLAY/PAUSE, STOP) have no effect. 3-2-2 Deleting Clips With this camcorder you can delete clips one at a time, in sequence from the last recorded clip, or you can delete all clips in a single operation. You can use the THUMBNAIL menu to delete the selected clip or all clips. For details, see “Deleting clips” (page 75). To delete the last recorded clip Note If the clip is locked, it cannot be deleted. Proceed as follows. 1 Holding down the MENU knob, move the MENU ON/ OFF switch from OFF to ON.

Recording a SHOT MARK 1 essence mark Press the RET button once. “ShotMark1” appears on the viewfinder screen for about one second near the time code display. If SHOT MARK 1 recording has been assigned to one of the assignable switches, you can also use that switch to record a SHOT MARK 1 essence mark. See section 7-3-5 “Assigning Functions to ASSIGN 1/2/3/ 4 Switches” (page 142) for more information about how to make assignments. Recording a SHOT MARK 2 essence mark Press the RET button twice in quick succession during recording or playback. “ShotMark2” appears in the viewfinder screen for about one second near the time code display. If SHOT MARK 2 recording has been assigned to one of the assignable switches, you can also use that switch to record a SHOT MARK 2 essence mark. 3-2-4 Starting a Shoot With a Few Seconds of Pre-Stored Picture Data (Picture Cache Function) The camcorder has a large capacity internal memory, in which you can cache the last few seconds (maximum 12 seconds) of captured video and audio, so that recording starts from a point just before you press the REC START button or VTR button on the lens. Setting the Picture Cache time/Picture Cache mode To record in Picture Cache mode, you need to turn on Picture Cache mode and set the picture data storage time (Picture Cache time) using the USER menu. The Picture Cache time determines the number of seconds recorded from the Picture Cache, counting back from the time when you press the REC START button or the VTR button on the lens to start recording. However, the number of seconds actually recorded from the Picture Cache may be shorter immediately after the setting of the VDR SAVE/ STBY switch is changed, and in the special situations explained in the following notes. Notes • The contents of picture cache memory are unstable for a short time immediately after you select Picture Cache mode or change the Picture Cache time. Therefore, if you put the unit into recording mode by pressing the REC START button or the VTR button on the lens immediately after such operation, pictures just before such operation cannot be recorded. Also, a certain amount of time is required to actually start recording to a disc immediately after you insert a disc and when the VDR SAVE/STBY switch is set to SAVE. In these cases, the number of seconds that can actually be recorded from the picture cache may be fewer than the specified picture cache time. • During playback or recording review, no data is saved to the picture cache memory. Thus it is not possible to use this function to rerecord the last few seconds of material from playback or recording review. To turn Picture Cache mode on, proceed as follows. MENU knob MENU ON/OFF switch 1 Set the MENU ON/OFF switch to ON. The last accessed menu page appears on the screen.

The z mark changes to a b mark and the ? mark changes to a z mark. 12To end the menu operation, set the MENU ON/OFF switch to OFF. 54 3-2 Recording The menu disappears, and the display indicating the current status of the camcorder appears along the top and bottom of the screen. Settings made in Picture Cache mode are maintained until changed. You can turn Picture Cache mode on and off by assigning the Picture Cache ON/OFF function to one of the assignable switches (ASSIGN 1/2/3/4 and TURBO GAIN buttons), and pressing the switch. For detailed information on the ASSIGN 1/2/3/4 switches, see 7-3-5 “Assigning Functions to ASSIGN 1/2/3/4 Switches” on page 142. Notes • You can change the Picture Cache mode menu settings while recording; any changes that you make, however, do not take effect until after the recording operation is completed. • In Picture Cache mode, the internal time code generator operating mode is always F-RUN regardless of the setting of the F-RUN/SET/R-RUN switch. Camcorder operations in Picture Cache mode The recording procedure in Picture Cache time is basically the same as that for normal recording. However, note the following differences. • When you record in Picture Cache mode, the picture you are shooting now is recorded to disc after the picture data stored in memory (equal to the Picture Cache time) is recorded to disc. For this reason, disc access may continue for a short time after you press the REC START button to stop recording. During this time, the playback control buttons are disabled, as in recording mode. Also, if you press the REC START button or the VTR button on the lens to restart recording during this time, a separate clip is recorded. • When you press the REC START button or the VTR button on the lens to restart recording during disc access, the start point of the recorded clip may be later than the Picture Cache time, especially when there are a large number of clips recorded on the disc. In Picture Cache mode, you should avoid stop and start recording operations in quick succession. • The time disc access stops after the REC START button is pressed equals the Picture Cache time. However, if you start recording within the Picture Cache time immediately after selecting Picture Cache mode, changing the Picture Cache time or performing playback or recording review, the picture data for the duration of the Picture Cache time will not be stored in memory. Thus, the time disc access stops after the STOP button is pressed becomes shorter than the Picture Cache time. • In Picture Cache mode, you cannot set the F-RUN/SET/ R-RUN switch to SET to make time code settings. To make time code settings, first exit Picture Cache mode. When power is lost during recording • When the power is turned off during recording, the camcorder will switch itself off after disc access has continued for a few seconds to record the picture in the instant of power off. • If you remove the battery, pull out the DC cable, or cut power to the AC adaptor during recording, video and audio stored in memory will be lost without being recorded to the disc. For this reason, make sure you do not change the battery while recording. 3-2-5 Time-Lapse Video (Interval Rec Function) Using the memory in the camcorder, you can capture time lapse video. There are two modes for this function, which is known as “Interval Rec.” • Auto Interval Rec mode In Auto Interval Rec mode, pictures are automatically shot a frame at a time at the specified interval and stored in memory. To use this function you must set the total time for shooting (TAKE TOTAL TIME) and the length of time for recording on the disc (REC TIME). • Manual Interval Rec mode A specified number of frames (NUMBER OF FRAME) is recorded when you press the REC START button or the lens VTR button. There are two Manual Interval Rec modes: a single shot mode in which recording is done once with each press of the button, and a consecutive mode in which recording is done repeatedly at a specified interval after the button is pressed. A pre-lighting function is available in Auto Interval Rec mode and the consecutive mode of Manual Interval Rec mode. This function automatically turns on the light before recording starts, which allows you to record pictures under stable light and color temperature conditions. Note The camcorder cannot be put into Interval Rec mode when the scanning mode is 24P (with the CBK-FC01 expansion board (see page 147) installed). Auto Interval Rec mode settings and shooting To make settings before shooting To record in Auto Interval Rec mode, you need to turn on Auto Interval Rec and set the total time from start to finish of shooting (TAKE TOTAL TIME) and the length of time for recording on the disc (REC TIME), using the USER menu. Notes • To make settings for Auto Interval Rec mode, set “TAKE TOTAL TIME” first, then “REC TIME”. • To turn on the light automatically before starting to record, set the LIGHT switch to AUTO. To turn on Auto Interval Rec mode, proceed as follows.

About the automatic title generation 2 Load a clip list from the disc. • To create a new clip list, load a NEW FILE (empty) clip list. • To add clips to an existing clip list, load that clip list. Note Always load either a new or existing clip list from disc. function By default, clips on each disc are assigned names in the range C0001.MXF to C0300.MXF. For this reason, two discs can contain clips with the same names. The automatic title generation function allows you to assign titles to all of the clips on several discs, which facilitates clip management. For example, if the titles TITLE00001 to TITLE00020 are assigned to clips C0001.MXF to C0020.MXF on disc 1, then the titles TITLE00021 to 3-2 Recording 61 TITLE00037 are assigned to clips C0001.MXF to C0017.MXF on disc 2. Titles are made up of prefixes, up to 10 characters in length, and five-digit serial numbers such as TITLE 00001. C0020.MXF C0002.MXF C0001.MXF TITLE00020 C h TITLE00020 a p TITLE00001 t e r 3 Clips recorded on Disc 1 R e c o r d i n g a n d C0017.MXF P l a y C0002.MXF b a C0001.MXF c k TITLE00037 TITLE00022 TITLE00021 Clips recorded on Disc 2 Setting the title prefix You can assign title prefixes by choosing from a prefix list stored in internal memory, or by entering the prefix directly. However, to choose from a prefix list, you must create the list beforehand on a computer and transfer it to the unit’s internal memory with a “Memory Stick”. Setting the initial value of the serial number The initial value of the serial number can be set to 00001 (the default) or to any other number. The number is automatically incremented by 1 each time you record a clip. When it reaches 99999, it returns to 00001 for the next clip. Note Duplicate clip titles can be generated depending on the serial number setting, for example if you reset the serial number to the original value after recording several clips.

3-3 Checking Recording and Playback Disc playback start position Although this unit uses optical discs, it is designed to offer the most convenient features of tape playback by VTRs. One of these is the playback start position, which works in the same way as tape, as described below. After playback stop C The unit stops at the position where the STOP button was h a p pressed. t e r 3 Press the PLAY/PAUSE button to resume playback at the R stop position. e c o r d After recording i n g The unit stops at the position where recording ended. a n d To play back a clip, press the PREV button to move to the P l a start frame of any clip, or press the PREV button with the y b a PLAY/PAUSE button held down to move to any position. c k After disc insertion The unit stops at the position of the disc when it was most recently ejected. Press the PLAY/PAUSE button to resume playback at the most recent position. The playback position is saved to the disc when the disc is ejected, which allows playback to start at that position whenever it is loaded into any XDCAM player. Note The playback position is not recorded to the disc if the disc is set to REC INH. 3-3-1 Normal Playback By pressing the PLAY/PAUSE button, you can review any length of recording on the viewfinder screen in black and white or in color on the color LCD. There are two other ways to review the recording. • Recording review: You can view the last two seconds of the recording on the viewfinder screen in black and white or in color on the color LCD. • Color playback: You can see the recording in color on a color video monitor without the need for any external adaptor. You may also view the picture during a fast forward or reverse search. See 2-3 “Audio Functions” on page 24 for details about the switches and controls used to select the audio output signal and to adjust the audio level. 70 3-3 Checking Recording and Playback Deteriorating playback conditions Deteriorating playback may be due to the following causes. • Scratches and dust on the disc surface This includes fingerprints, dust from the air, tar from cigarette smoke, and so on. Scratches and soiling which occur before recording are not a problem because they are registered in advance as defects, and recording avoids them. However, scratches and soiling which occur after recording can lead to deteriorating playback conditions. • Aging of disc recording layers Over several decades, the recording layers of optical discs can age and cause deteriorating playback conditions. You can use this function to check archival discs and other discs which have been stored for extended periods, so that you can take action before the deterioration progresses further. • Deteriorating laser diodes performance The performance of the laser diodes used in optical heads can worsen with age, leading to deteriorating playback conditions. You can use the digital clock to check the total optical output time of optical heads. Refer to the Maintenance Manual for an approximate guide to when it is time to replace optical heads. To prevent playback conditions from deteriorating Pay attention to the following points when handling discs. • Do not open disc cartridges and touch discs directly with your hands. • Do not store for long periods in locations which are dusty or exposed to air circulated by fans. • Do not store for long periods under high temperatures or in locations exposed to direct sunlight. If playback conditions have deteriorated Read errors occur when playback conditions continue to deteriorate. When a read error occurs, the message “DISC DEFECT” appears, the video freezes, and audio is muted. If this happens, check the following points. Whether the disc displays the same playback condition on other XDCAM devices: If so, the surface of the disc may be dirty or scratched, or the performance of the recording layers on the disc may have worsened due to age. Do not use discs with these symptoms. Whether every disc inserted into an XDCAM device displays the same playback conditions: If so, the performance of the laser diodes may have deteriorated. Check the total optical output time. 3-3-2 Checking the Last Two Seconds of the Recording — Recording Review If you press the RET button on the lens while recording is paused, the last two seconds of the recording is played back on the viewfinder screen and the color LCD. Use this function to check whether recording went smoothly.
