Hi Phil,
like the interview - especially you are very true with your last comments about the Internet...
Indeed it is a great chance bringing people and communities together (like on this forum) and meeting real faces at NAB instead of just know an e-mail adress is for sure exiting...
I always enjoy such meetings during NAB and IBC for seeing people. (although I wasn'y at NAB this year)

So IBC will be next occasion...

Archiving

Dear Phil,

I work with a large broadcaster, that edits on Avid Symphony. They ingest tapes 1/50th of the quality and then do a conform at the end. Is there anyway this can be done with XDCAM? I called the machine room and they say that tapeless systems are really complicated and so they'll continue only working on tape for the time being. Archiving to Blu-ray or XDCAM doesn't work for them.

I'd love to buy the camera, but can't see how I can get the work-flow to work. Any suggestions would be warmly welcomed.

All the best.

JJB

not with the ex1 i dont think as there are no proxies, unless you ingest real time through hd sdi. The f355 and f350 have proxies which can be edited with like this

low size Proxies are "automatic" with XDcam HD, when working with blueray recorders.
You will not have any other solution than recording the SD quality out of the camera or re-compress you HD footage to something smaller, which could be time and computer ressources consuming.
Maybe you should use the componant output connected to a DV recorder and send them the tape so they can work in their 10 years old editing solution :)
by the way, importing your footage in final cut server and creting a proxy should do the trick but I don't know if they have the same thing in Avid. Pretty sure they do have the same thing :)

My love affair with my EX1 has hit a large snag

Basically my beloved camera with serial number 3 has been lost after it was being sent in for repair.

UPS picked it up, it got lost. Sony say I need proof that UPS picked it up. The tracking number says it was picked up but that isn't enough for UPS incredibly!!!

Not very nice really!

Don't you have a hard copy receipt from UPS?
Did you insure it?
Tracking number should track whether it's delivered or not.
If not, UPS is responsible but they only cover the insured amount.

I always insure, always get paper receipt, always ship some method which requires proof of delivery (in other words I don't ship ground).

Basically if you UPS doesn't show it as delivered it's their responsibility, if they do, it's Sony's.

If UPS shows the pickup, and you are insured, it is there issue, hands down.

Been through this a few times. They have always reimbursed.

Indeed looks great for the price. Please keep us informed how it performs!

Judging from the pictures, the camera tends to aim downwards a bit - and I can't see any adjustment for the tilt angle...

If you've got a receipt of pick-up, you'll be fine! It's just a hassle to deal with this kind of madness. Follow the paper work!
