HYBRID solution for media, format and workflow

In HYBRID operation, with the optional HVR-MRC1K Memory Recording Unit, you can simultaneously record video footage and audio to tape and to a standard CompactFlash (CF) card. This will allow an operator to shoot HD on tape and CF card, SD on tape and CF card or HD on tape and SD on CF card - depending on their requirements.
