New flexibility, new features, new opportunities

The HVR-M35E is the flagship of our compact HDV VTR range with unrivalled production flexibility due to its support for a huge range of HDV/DVCAM/DV formats - making it ideal for inclusion in any workflow based on these formats. Whatever your requirements today or tomorrow, the HVR-M35E is designed to be your perfect partner.

A key feature of the HVR-M35E is its compatibility with HDV native progressive recording on the new HVR-Z7E and HVR-S270E camcorders. It also supports playback of 720P HDV material and provides an HD/SD-SDI output with embedded audio and TC data. A high resolution LCD screen in the front panel provides for easy monitoring whatever your production set-up.

The HVR-M35E is the ultimate in workflow flexibility for both HDV and DVCAM users.

As with all HDV products, the HVR-M35E has the added benefit of 2 year Silver Support warranty - providing additional piece of mind.
