Sony: Creator of the World's First 1080i HDV
Camcorder
In 2003, Sony in conjunction with JVC, Canon and Sharp combined
their talents to create a system that would finally allow both profession-
als and consumers access to true High Definition acquisition at Stan-
dard Definition prices. Sony's first professional HDV camcorder, the
HVRZ1U, entered the market as the first 1080i HDV camcorder avail-
able and changed the way the world looked at High Definition forever.
Starin Marketing assembled this HDV guide to make you aware of the

without needing any knee compression. This allows the DXP
image processor to intelligently create the best possible HD
image
