I have been lucky (cursed?) to find that my employer purchased a PDW-F70 and PDW-U1 a few years ago. These are sitting in a closet and appear to have been used very lightly, if at all. We seem to have a few brand new blank single-layer Professional Discs but no XDCAM HD camcorders nor recorded discs. I would like to experiment with the PD workflow, even if just for curiosity sake. We are a small online media company that mostly uses DVCAM, so I don't even have a HDSDI source to use. I do however have some monitors with HDSDI inputs.
Are there any XDCAM HD users who could put together a sample disc of 35mbps XDCAM HD material for me so I can test and play with these two decks? I am willing to pay for the disc, shipping, and a small amount for your time. Thank you in advance.
