Recording and Playback Formats

The BR-HD50U can record HDV format 720/30p/25p/24p, 480/60p or 576/50p video. It is also compatible with the DV format 480/60i and 480/24p video. The tape mechanism accommodates both Standard DV and Mini DV format cassettes without any adapter.

The deck has a FireWire connection that will output both standard and high definition video without signal degradation and a almost universal NLE interface. A HDMI connector can be used for connecting to a HD projector or flat-screen monitor.

Analog Connections

In addition to the FireWire output the BR-HD50 is equipped with analog component (3-BNC) output connectors for HD and SD. Y/C input/output connectors and composite input/output connectors are also available for standard definition modes.

When a camcorder is connected to the BR-HD50 via the FireWire connector the BR-HD50 will start recording 5 minutes before the tape in the camcorder ends. This enables continuous shooting for extended periods with no breaks in the recording.
