1. A signal recording apparatus for recording an AV signal containing at least one of video or audio, comprising:
a camera configured to form an object image to provide a video signal of the object image and setting information of the camera;
a metadata generator configured to generate recorded metadata which is metadata recorded with the AV signal;
a classification determinator configured to determine, upon receipt of the recorded metadata, which playlist a portion of the AV signal corresponding to the recorded metadata is classified into by referring to a classification database storing a classification rule and to output classification information indicating a determination result, the classification rule being a rule used for determining the classification information based on the recorded metadata;
a playlist generator configured to generate, according to the classification information, a playlist for the AV signal; and
a recorder configured to record the AV signal, the recorded metadata, and the playlist on at least one recording medium,
wherein the metadata generator generates the recorded metadata using the setting information of the camera,
the classification rule includes a plurality of classification conditions and a plurality of classification information items, the plurality of classification conditions each corresponding to one of the plurality of classification information items, the plurality of classification information items each including an identifier of a different playlist,
the plurality of classification conditions include a classification condition using the setting information of the camera, and
the classification determinator outputs as the classification information, the classification information item corresponding to a first classification condition among the plurality of classification conditions when the recorded metadata satisfies the first classification condition while not satisfying another of the plurality of classification conditions.
