  D1 (Sony) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
D1 stored uncompressed digitized component video, encoded at Y'CbCr 4:2:2 using the CCIR 601 raster format, along with PCM audio tracks as well as timecode on a 19 mm (3/4") cassette tape.
D1 was notoriously expensive and the equipment required very large infrastructure changes in facilities which upgraded to this format.
Early D1 operations were plagued with difficulties, though the format quickly stabilized and was renowned for its superlative image quality.

 RW Online - Product Evaluation
But now, like a shooting star, Sony has entered the fray with a compelling new pro field recorder that defies conventional expectations and seems destined to be a classic.
Its integrated stereo X-Y microphone configuration is nice, with Sony claiming the D1's condenser pair has a nearly 30 kHz frequency response and results in a sensitivity of nearly 6 dB superior to that of a standard outboard stereo microphone.
The good news is that Sony or a third party could build a one-piece battery cartridge that would pop in and out of the D1 in lieu of the AA battery tray.

 Sony PCM-D1 Portable Linear PCM Recorder Review - Futuremusic Presents ::: TestDrive Product Reviews
When Sony first showcased the PCM-D1 at the AES trade show, I got a severe case of technolust.
Sony went to great lengths to control noise on the PCM-D1 and several tricks of the trade are utilized to give the unit an extremely low noise floor.
Kudos to Sony for using a standard format and not forcing the consumer to purchase several proprietary rechargeable batteries for backup.

Sony's "D1" format was the first major push towards fully digital videotape operations.
D1 is still in some usage as of 2003 2003, and many of the technologies introduced with this format are still common to more recent digital videotape formats.

 Sony PCM-D1 Recorder (Sale Price: $1,799.99) : Gigasonic.com
One caveat, which Sony mentions in the manual, is that there is a fair amount of handling noise from the thin titanium case.
In the case of our VPR reporter, he became aware of it quickly, and was able to compensate by holding the unit near the bottom and not rubbing his fingers on it, but I wouldn't guarantee that every reporter would be so motivated or careful.
In fairness, the Sony rep at NAB2006 said that the unit wasn't specifically designed for hand held use — but I would venture that using a small pistol grip camera mount would probably solve that problem nicely.

 Hands-On: D1 Grand Prix for PS2 on Gamepro.com.
In D1 GP, you'll take part in a multitude of modes, which include entering in past D1 competitions from 2001 to 2005 in the D1 Series mode, or taking part in Time Attack, Battle, or a mini-game mode called X-treme mode.
D1 GP also allows you to pick your own car, select graphics, rims, and a spoiler, and tune it.
Instead of trying to place in the top 3 in a race, D1 tasks you to earn drift points by entering into drifts at high speed, maintaining speed during a drift, maintaining optimum angles (drift line) of turning within a drift, and cutting into an opponent vehicle's inside line during a simultaneous drift.

Ok, so Sony's image was dented quite a bit because of that whole DRM software/rootkit business but to compensate for all the sorrow, they have designed something that looks to be a cross-breed between the Terminator and some BattleStar Galactica-kind of brain surgery tool.
The Sony PCM-D1 measures 0.422(h) x 0.157(w) x 0.072(d) cubits, and weighs 1050 Chinese Imperial fen.
Somewhat surprised that Sony would not put an XLR mic connector on such a high-end component, but the right cord will solve that problem.

 Radio Magazine | Sony PCM-D1
Weighing just over a pound (18.2 ounces with batteries), thinner and half again as long (2.5" × 6.75" × 1.3") as the venerable Sony TCD-8 portable DAT recorder many field recordists are accustomed to using, the PCM-D1 linear recorder is, at first glance, a work of engineering art.
In a rather radical departure for Sony, the unit records linear PCM WAV files that can be transferred from the unit via USB for immediate editing.
The Sony Super Bitmap scheme also lives on in the unit as a selectable parameter for recording.

 Nikon D1 Review: 1. Intro: Digital Photography Review
Nikon's D1 has been around for over a year now, first officially announced on 15th June 1999, though we'd seen plenty of "behind glass" prototypes before then.
The D1 features a 2.74 megapixel 23.7 mm x 16.7 mm CCD which outputs 2.62 million pixels (2000 x 1312).
This means that, like other digital SLR's the D1 features a focal length multiplier of 1.5x, thus a 28 mm lens on a D1 has an equiv.

The Sony quickly landed on my radar as not only the most feature rich product available, but also the coolest looking.
The Sony is lightweight (18.2) ounces and takes up about as much room as two packs of cigarettes placed end to end.
Other than a two-gig file size limitation and an inability to seamlessly switch between the internal memory and proprietary Sony Memory Stick Pro, the PCM-D1 is a nearly perfect field recorder.

Since one microphone is totally amateur-hour, the Sony model sports two angled, high-sensitivity condenser mics along with a five-line LCD for displaying recording and playback info, and two analog level meters.
Well, this recorder from M audio looks like it easily beats the Sony in the specs department, except for the mics of course.
The problem with the Sony of course is you have to use their memory sticks AND I bet you won't be able to do simple drop and drag copying of files.

 Portable Audio Recorders
But the launch of recording portable DAT players in the 1990s opened the possibility for true professional-quality field recordings, and early machines such as Sony's TCD-D3 were hugely popular with live music fans capturing their favorite performers.
It seemed, however, that miniaturizing the helical-scan technology of video recorders into a palm-sized device (which is what the portable DATs did) was a bridge too far in portable electronics, and the DAT recorders were plagued with short lifespans and chewed-up tapes.
As it happened, Sony was launching their new solid-state recorder, the PCM-D1 (not to be confused with the PCM-D1, Sony's 1977 original Digital Audio add-on to the then-nascent VCRs).
