Sony HVR-M15E


HVR-M15E Compact HDV VTR


The most compact HDV capable VTR in the Sony range

In addition to providing HDV1080i recording and playback, the HVR-M15E also supports both DVCAM and DV formats providing users the ability to work with both standard definition and high definition content. The HVR-M15E is also compatible with standard size cassettes. The DigitalMaster ™ cassette can provide over 4 hours recording of HDV content - the ideal choice when longer recording times are required.

The compact dimensions of the HVR-M15E means that it can be positioned either horizontally or vertically depending on individual needs, whilst its simple design makes it very easy to use.As with all HDV products, the HVR-M15E has the added benefit of 2 year Silver Support warranty - providing additional piece of mind.


HDV/DVCAM/DV Compatible
The HVR-M15E can switch between HDV 1080i, DVCAM and DV recording and play back, providing full flexibility to record and play back either Standard or High Definition depending on production needs.

Dual-size Cassette Mechanism
The HVR-M15E accepts both standard and mini size HDV, DVCAM, and DV cassettes without using any special adaptor. It allows for HDV recording for up to 276 minutes with a DigitalMaster™ Cassette - ideal when longer recoding times are required.

Down-conversion Capabilities
The HVR-M15E allows down conversion from HDV1080i format. Analogue outputs (component/S-Video/Composite) and the i.LINK interface can provide a standard definition signal in either DVCAM or DV if required.

50/60Hz Switchable
The HVR-M15E is compatible with both 50 and 60 Hz use - providing greater user flexibility to make and edit productions on a worldwide basis.

Compact & Simple Design
The compact dimensions of the HVR-M15E mean that it can be used even when workspace is at a premium, and its simple layout means that it is easy to use.

The HVR-M15E is equipped with HDV/DV IN TC, enabling time code synchronization with external equipment - ideal when dubbing tapes or recording to tapes with material edited by nonlinear editing systems.

Menu button
The HVR-M15E offers a menu button. This enables quick menu access without the need of a remote control.

Auto Repeat
The HVR-M15E has an Auto Repeat function that enables it to repeatedly play back a program. Just after the HVR-M15E reaches the end of the tape, it automatically rewinds the tape and repeats the playback.

TC Reset
The HVR-M15E can reset the time code value to 00:00:00:00 via either menu or wireless remote control.


An affordable way to enjoy High Definition
Through the HDV format Sony's HVR-M15E allows you to playback and record High Definition pictures on a standard DV format cassette - providing both a highly cost effective format and full 1080 line resolution.

Not just for HDV
With the Sony HVR-M15E, you are able to switch between DV, DVCAM and HDV recording and playback giving you full flexibility to record and review in either Standard or High Definition depending on your chosen footage.

Portable and Compact
The clever design of the HVR-M15E means that users can position the VTR either vertically or horizontally depending on individual needs

Easy integration to the way you already work
Continuity of Workflow can be very important. Enjoying the benefits of the HVR-M10E does not mean that you need to change the way you work. Like DVCAM VTR's, a full range of connectivity is available for external devices including Composite In/Out, S-video In/Out, Component Out and i.LINK (IEEE1394). In addition, you can choose to convert your HDV footage with the in-built down-converter to output in Standard Definition if required.

A comprehensive support service
Just like the rest of the HDV range, the HVR-M15E benefits from two years Silver Support warranty as standard providing a unique after-sales care programme offering enhanced support and service.
