The DSR-25 is a DVCAM Digital Videocassette Recorder especially designed for use in DV-based non-linear editing suites. It is an ideal tool for uploading and downloading video to and from i.LINK equipped non-linear editing systems.
With its 2-inch, built-in LCD, using the DSR-25 is easy because important information, such as the recorded image, audio level, set-up menu, and system status are vividly displayed.
In addition, the DSR-25 features easy one-touch duplication, the capability to preset user bits and time codes, a built-in tape counter, and a wireless remote.

Compact DVCAM VTR for a wide range of applications

DVCAM / DV(SP) recording & playback ensures perfect compatibility
While the DVCAM format delivers superior A/V performance and reliability for professional use, when you need to record and playback in DV(SP) format, the DSR-25 offers you this choice too.

625/525 switchable
To accommodate the growing needs for international program exchange, the DSR-25 is built with the flexibility for switchable operation in 625/525 environments. This feature is also ideal for multi-national operations that require dual compatibility.
You can record using either system as well. Simply slide a switch to select the incoming source.
Signal conversion
Analogue input signals can be converted to digital and simultaneously output from the i.LINK connector.
Also, it can convert i.LINK input signal to analogue signals.

DV format recording and playback
With your DSR-25 you can record and play back DV format tapes (SP mode only) as well as DVCAM format.
In DV format the DSR-25 offers 270 minutes of recording with a standard-size cassette.

Colour bar generator and Tape counter
The DSR-25 has a colour bar generator that can be activated from the set-up menu. In addition, the system comes with a digital tape counter on the front panel, which is convenient for performing relative time code data editing, and for monitoring the operation of the unit.

Wireless remote commander supplied
The DSR-25 comes with a wireless remote commander, RMT-DS5, which provides menu control for precise settings. Most of the VTRs functions can be controlled from the commander, making it ideal for use during presentations.

Supplied Accessories
AC Power Cord
Wireless Remote Commander RMT-DS5
2x AA batteries for Remote commander
Cleaning Cassette

LCD monitor lets you check as you go
You can use the high resolution built-in LCD colour monitor to view the image as they are recorded or to check the playback picture ‘On location’.
It also makes setting menus and audio recording levels easier.

Compact and lightweight
The DSR-25 is both compact and lightweight, weighing just 4.3kg. Only a half-rack wide, two units can be mounted side-by-side in a 19-inch equipment rack.

Using the integrated 4-pin i.LINK interface you can duplicate entire tapes and transfer audio, video and command signals to a PC.
Time code through i.LINK
The DSR-25 can copy time code from a non-tape source through i.LINK. This is useful when video edited on a PC or other NLE system has new time code.
iLINK interface
The integrated i.LINK interface allows you to transfer digital audio and video through a single-cable connection with virtually no loss in quality.
This provides an easy and convenient way to make back-up tapes.


Is an NTSC signal produced when playing back an NTSC recorded tape?Yes, the DSR-25 can playback NTSC recorded tape with an NTSC signal output. There is no video conversion to PAL signal from NTSC.
How can I make an NTSC recording?The DSR-25 can be switched between NTSC or PAL recording via a switch on the rear panel.
Is it possible to convert between Analogue and iLINK signals?Yes, you can convert from Analogue to i.LINK, and vice versa by using E-to-E mode.
Does the DSR-25 have an RS-232C control capability?No, only DSR-45P has this function.
Can the DSR-25 be powered from a DC power supply?No. However, the DSR-70AP and DSR-50P can be via the 4-pin type connector.
Does the DSR-25 have an internal signal generator?The unit has a colour bar signal generator, but does not have an audio signal generator such as 1KHz  reference signal.
Can the DSR-25 play back DVCPRO recorded tapes?No, only Master Series VTRs such as DSR-1500AP can play back DVCPRO tapes.
