by Dhiram Shah


It is the World’s first HD Video Walkman with pro features. So the next time you wanna check out those cheesy shots you took with your HDV or DV camcorder, you know what to do. The HD Video Walkman is Sony’s portable solution for viewing HDV and DV tapes while you’re on the move. It features a high quality 7-inch (16:9) widescreen LCD with resolution of 1,152K (800x480x3[RGB]) and has versatile interfaces including i.LINK and HDMI out. The GV-HD700E plays back HDV as well as miniDV tapes (SP and LP). It can double up as a back-up deck for professional videographers because it can record HDV1080i/DV signals from an external source. It’s also the first Video Walkman supporting x.v.Colour. Any of the fourteen commonly used functions (including search, index mark and playback zoom) can be assigned to three function buttons.
