Sony debuts high-definition recorder for medical use

Sony Electronics on November 17 introduced an optical high-definition (HD) recorder to capture and store HD video of medical procedures in 1,440x1,080i resolution.

The device can record and store up to two hours on a 23GB PFD-23 XDCAM disc, which is sealed to help prevent scratches and preserve data with minimal degradation for more than 50 years, based on Sony's accelerated testing.

The PDW-70MD XDCAM HD recorder integrates a 3.5-inch color LCD screen that allows users to view thumbnail-sized stills of footage accessible through RAM.
