Does anyone know if the Sony PDWF1600 XDCAM deck can do standards conversion from 50i to 59.94?
I know it can do up & down conversions from SD to HD to SD as well as cross conversions like 720 to 1080. But will it do PAL to essentially NTSC framerate conversions, 25P and 50i to 23.98, 29.97, & 59.94? I've been told that it cannot and I just want to be sure...

The HD1500 and F1600 decks will do 1080-720 cross conversion and HD/SD up/down conversion but will not do a 50-60/60-60 standards conversion. This usually requires a scan converter or other external box.
