DVCAM playback on TRV900? Is that possible?

-- Chiel Muller (coyote@euronet.nl), March 01, 1999


I don't think so. Only in the PD100....

IT's my understanding that current or relatively newer runs of Sony DV cameras and decks will play DVCAM back. Rich

That is correct: The VX1000 and the VX700 cannot playback Dvcam and neither can the XL1 but the current TRV900 etc all play back DVcam. John Ferrick

Nope. DVCAM plays both DVCAM and DV. A DV machine, however, can't playback DVCAM. This is beause the recording speed on a DVCAM machine is so much higher. Bottom line: DVCAM is backwards-compatible. DV is not frontwards- compatible, otherwise it'd actually *be* DVCAM, and not DV.

Of course it plays. I saw it by my eyes. I think all of new Sony's camcorders are able to play DVCAM format.
