Sony - Archival XDCAM - PFD128QLW

Archival Grade

Available now, Sony has introduced the newest addition to their line of XDCAM discs, the PFD128QLW. Like the  PFD23A, and PFD50DLA, the Archival XDCAM reads and writes with Blue-Violet laser technology. The PFD128QLW is a quad-layer disc, and holds up to 240 minutes at 50 Mbps on it's 128GB of storage space. The PFD128QLW is write-once, which protects your archived data.

Same Flexible Platform

The XDCAM Professional Disc system is a very flexible platform on which an assortment of data in a variety of formats can reside. The use of optical disc technology eliminates the restrictions inherent in proprietary tape footprints, and allows a variety of different video formats to be recorded as 'data files', and is therefore extremely flexible as to what can be recorded to it. In addition to video and audio streams, you can record a variety of metadata, such as date/time information and comments indicating the material content. Furthermore, computer files created on Microsoft Word, PhotoShop, and other application software can also be stored on the XDCAM Professional Disc media*. *Up to 500 MB

High Transfer Rate 

The XDCAM Professional Disc's data transfer rate is 72 Mb/s from a single optical head unit and 144 Mb/s on a dual head deck, providing stable recording and playback of high bit rate data such as a 50 Mb/s MPEG IMX stream.

Quick Random Access

The nonlinear nature of the XDCAM Professional Disc media alone provides tremendous benefit when handling audio/video content. When a recording is played back from the disc, its physical location on the disc does not impact the time required to access it. Recordings can be accessed in a fraction of the equivalent time taken to access information on disc, making it much easier and faster to locate source material. This is the beauty of random access, and all Sony XDCAM products are equipped with powerful features-  delivering innovation to all your programming operations.

Highly Reliable and Durable Medium

XDCAM optical discs have a natural advantage since they suffer no mechanical contact during recording or playback, making the format ideal for continuous use. The XDCAM Professional Disc media is highly resistant to dust, shock, and scratches, and is packaged in a durable and dust-resistant cartridge. It is resistant to heat and humidity, and is X-ray resistant which allows for long media life and long-term storage.

    Stephen Mc:

    Great price for the amount of space you get.

    Does not even work in our XDCAM deck because there is a firmware update needed. According to Sony this firmware update will not be released for a while. So why sell me a product I can't even use.
