CODEC Quality Chart

In reviewing an XDCAM CODEC technology white paper from Sony, we decided to overlay the 100 Mbps 4:2:2 full-raster CODEC onto the quality comparison chart created by the CTO of Sony Broadcast. This seems like a very fair comparison, since we're using the same exact Sony CODEC technology in our Flash XDR and nanoFlash.

Take a look at the attached chart. It seems we are clearly above HDCAM and just below HDCAM SR.

The full white paper can be downloaded here: http://pro.sony.com/bbsc/ssr/mkt-bro...urce.solutions

Updated Chart

Here's the updated chart, a little easier to read. You can see that the 100 Mbps 4:2:2 Long-GOP is clearly above HDCAM quality.
