Description

Explanation of the video output signal standards of the XH G1S and XH A1S

Solution

The standard of the video signal output from the HD/SD SDI ( only), HD/SD COMPONENT OUT and HDV/DV terminals depends on the standard used for recording (or the standard of the recording on the tape being played back) and on various menu settings. Video output from the VIEWFINDER/COMPONENT OUT, A/V1, or VIDEO 2 terminal will always be in 480/60i standard. Standard of Video Output while Recording

While recording in high definition, video output from the HD/SD SDI terminal will be an uncompressed HD, YPbPr signal. You can down-convert the video output with the respective menu settings.

Standard of Video Output during Playback

When playing back a tape recorded in HDV standard, video output from the HD/SD SDI terminal will be a signal modified from the HDV video. You can down-convert the video output with the respective menu settings.
