Sony HVR-MRC1 User Manual

Sony ericsson computer drive user manual.

 
Using the Sony HVR-MRC1 Compact Flash memory
recorder
This guide is designed for users and potential users of the HVR-MRC1 with HDV
cameras. A lot of this information will also be useful to HVR-DR60 users, although
that is not covered in detail here. Likewise, some information relating to using the
memory recorder with DVCAM cameras is included, but these are not fully discussed
here. This document is not designed to replace the product manuals, as only the key
features and settings are covered, so it is also likely to be useful to have the user
manuals for the HVR-MRC1 and the relevant camera to hand.
The level of integration between the memory recorder and the camera will largely
depend on when the camera was introduced. Older cameras were designed without
knowledge of the memory recorder. Newer cameras integrate more tightly and will
include more features directly relevant to the memory recorder, such as a dedicated
status display screen.
Connecting the HVR-MRC1 to the camera
The HVR-Z5E, HVR-Z7E and HVR-S270E all feature direct connections for the
memory recorder. The memory recorder can be clipped directly to these cameras with
no need for cables or batteries. The memory recorder will use an internal i.LINK
connection to the camera, so while the memory recorder is connected the main
i.LINK connection cannot be used.

of the HVR-S270E (right)
For all other cameras, the memory recorder needs to be connected to the included
i.LINK cradle, and an L-series battery (same as HVR-Z1E battery) or DC power

    (b) Follow the record trigger button on the camera The next thing that needs to be decided is whether you would like the memory recorder to start and stop recording by following the record trigger button on the camera. The alternative is for the recorder to operate independently from the camera. The setting that relates to this is called CAM LINK, and this is controlled by a button on the memory recorder (see number 2 on Figure 4).

    SYNCHRONOUS – This will enable recording to both tape and compact flash. The camera will still start recording if one media type is missing. RELAY – Will record only to tape until there is less than 5 minutes remaining on the tape.

    (b) File structure The camera will create a folder named ‘VIDEO’ in the root directory of the compact flash card. It will also create an ‘HVR’ folder within the ‘VIDEO’ folder and it is in this folder that the video content will be stored. The file names will match the following convention:- XX_CCCC_YYYY-MM-DD_hhmmss.ext where...
