Enables cost-effective HD productions

The HVR-M35N is an affordable yet high-performance HD recording system incorporating the HDV™ 1080i specification that offers the HDV format to a wide range of professional videographers.

Users can record and play back video in a choice of HDV 1080i, DVCAM™ and DV formats. The HVR-M35N also features the HDV native progressive format capability, which provides stunning 1080p images at 24, 25 or 30 frames per second*.

Among the many essential features of the HVR-M35N are its compatibility with standard cassettes in addition to mini cassettes to provide extended recording time of up to 276 minutes. Optimised for use with nonlinear editing systems thanks to its highly compact size and ease of operation, the HVR-M35N offers plenty of other useful features, which include a built-in 2.7-inch* *-type, 16:9 LCD monitor and an HD-SDI or HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) output for more demanding production environments.

The HVR-M35N is a powerful, cost-effective tool for nonlinear editing systems that will serve production needs well into the future.
