Brief Overview:

A feature rich HDV VTR for professionals

The HVR-M25E supports HDV1080i, DVCAM and DV recording and playback - providing users the ability to work with both standard definition and high definition content. The HVR-M25E is also compatible with standard size cassettes. The DigitalMaster?cassette can provide over 4 hours recording of HDV content - the ideal choice when longer recording times are required.

The HVR-M25E is designed for professional use - and includes a convenient, integrated 16:9 LCD screen for content monitoring, and HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) for simple connectivity to HD consumer displays for added flexibility.


HDV/DVCAM/DV Compatible

The HVR-M25E can switch between HDV 1080i, DVCAM and DV recording and play back, providing full flexibility to record and play back either Standard or High Definition depending on production needs.

Dual-size Cassette Mechanism

The HVR-M25E accepts both standard and mini size HDV, DVCAM, and DV cassettes without using any special adaptor. It allows for HDV recording for up to 276 minutes with a DigitalMaster?Cassette - ideal when longer recoding times are required.

Down-conversion Capabilities

The HVR-M25E allows down conversion from HDV1080i format. Analogue outputs (component/S-Video/Composite) and the i.LINK interface can provide a standard definition signal in either DVCAM or DV if required.

50/60Hz Switchable

The HVR-M25E is compatible with both 50 and 60 Hz use - providing greater user flexibility to make and edit productions on a worldwide basis.


The HVR-M25E is equipped with HDV/DV IN TC, enabling time code synchronization with external equipment - ideal when dubbing tapes or recording to tapes with material edited by nonlinear editing systems.

2.7" 16:9 LCD Monitor

The HVR-M25E has a 2.7" wide LCD panel enabling operators to check 16:9 aspect pictures images, audio level meter and set-up menu. The newly developed "Clear Photo LCD plus" further improves the visibility of previous LCDs, offering more detailed and colorful photography of objects in dark or bright places.

HDMI Output

HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a specification for the input-output interface of uncompressed HD digital video and multi-channel audio, and has become the standard for HDTV and other CE devices. As such the HVR-M25E can be easily connected to such devices for added user flexibility.

Duplicate Plus

The Duplicate Plus is a dubbing function that can duplicate the tape with timecodes via an i.LINK interface. By using the Duplicate Plus button it helps to make a work tape, which contains the exact timecode that the original source tape contains.

Edge Crop Adjust

The HVR-M25E is able to adjust the edge crop position when down converting from HD (16:9 aspect ratio) to SD (4:3 aspect ratio). By displaying the edge crop marker on the monitor, you can check the crop position on the LCD monitor before down converting.

Custom Repeat

The HVR-M25E has an Auto Repeat function that enables it to repeatedly play back a program. In addition, the HVR-M25E has a Custom Repeat function that allows operators to set a repeat number of times, a repeat interval, and a start time of repeat.

Time code settings

The time code can be preset using any number in H/M/S/F (hours/minutes/seconds/frames), for accurate tape-position information.

Assign Buttons

Other than the default functions, frequently used functions can be assigned for convenient and customized operation.


An affordable way to enjoy High Definition

Through the HDV format Sony's HVR-M25E allows you to playback and record High Definition pictures on a standard DV format cassette - providing both a highly cost effective format and full 1080 line resolution.

Not just for HDV

With the Sony HVR-M25E, you are able to switch between DV, DVCAM and HDV recording and playback giving you full flexibility to record and review in either Standard or High Definition depending on your chosen footage.

See as you work

The high resolution integrated 16:9 LCD monitor can be used on the HVR-M25E to view the images as they are recorded or to check the playback picture - ideal as a quick reference tool.

Easy integration to the way you already work

Continuity of Workflow can be very important. Enjoying the benefits of the HVR-M25E does not mean that you need to change the way you work. Like DVCAM VTR's, a full range of connectivity is available for external devices including Composite In/Out, S-video In/Out, Component Out and i.LINK (IEEE1394). In addition, you can choose to convert your HDV footage with the in-built down-converter to output in Standard Definition if required.
