Here's the lowdown on the deck Sony showed at the HPA Retreat:

It's called (for now) HD-Cam SR.  It records at 450 Mbits/sec, in MPEG-4
I-Frame-Only format.  It is basically a data recorder, with some big buffers
for off-speed stuff, so they could configure it pretty much however they
want to.  As shown, it included TWELVE audio tracks and I believe that it is
compatible with normal HD-Cam tapes.  So it could, concieveably, be a D5-HD
killer.  No mention of pricing or availability, as this was just a
technology showing.  Look for it at NAB.
