Broadcast Quality
 
The August 2004 issue of DigitalTV magazine, a publication targeting broadcasters of Digital Television had this to say about Sony and the PD150-170 cameras:

Editor's introduction:

"DVCam is the most popular tape format of all time."

"You can use a Sony PD-150 and PD-170 DVCAM camcorder on a network news show. . . regularly."

Article, " Analog rides the Digital Bus," is about the three buses ABC has outfit to cover the election.

"Field production is conducted on DVCAM with two Sony DSR-PD170 camcorders."

interestingly enough, one of the major national broadcasters here is running with the line ' small camera's big stories'. their promo features a variety of dv's (notably pd's and smaller canon's).

the doco's, those that i've seen are well produced and very interesting (which should be the two deciding factors in all productions - not what camera was it shot on!).

fact is, i' regularly shoot for tv here with my 170, and with a bit of basic lighting (i use 2 300w 'video lights' i found in a junk shop years ago), i can produce pretty damn good pics.

i come from 30+ years in the industry and having semi retired - am finding a new life and great demand with my 170 and vegas....

as i written, taught, preached for 30+ years (yes, i remember this when it was all green fields...), it's content that matters, not technicalities...

Amen to that, Leslie. Can't agree more!

That's not the point, the point is that the broadcast networks who eschewed digital and NLE until very lately, now field LOB cameras and run computer-based NLE.

The three main goals in video has always been content, content and content.
