* Available for PDW-F800/700 and PMW-500 only
Print Clip Information
This feature enables export of list information about clips and clip lists stored in recording media or a folder.
As list information is exported in XML format, it is useful not only to display, but also to print using a web browser such as Internet Explorer (Windows) or Safari (Mac).
Acquisition Metadata Display
The latest major XDCAM camcorders have ability to store camera (lens) related metadata into SxS or Professional Disc in real-time (frame-by-frame).
This metadata is useful in post process to understand the various camera settings used in shooting — such as Zoom, Focus and Iris.
