Sony to Showcase XDCAM HD
The next generation of the XDCAM Professional Disc system will be among the highlights at the Sony booth at NAB.

"The introduction of a high-definition version of our XDCAM system marks the continuing evolution of optical technology as users shift from standard definition production," said Alec Shapiro, senior vice president of Sony Electronics' Broadcast and Production Systems Division. "This new XDCAM line-up rounds out Sony's range of HD production tools, filling an important niche between Sony's entry-level and high-end formats."

The new cameras, models PDW-F330 and PDW-F350, can record in true 24p with SD or HD resolution and feature interval recording and slow shutter functionalities. The PDW-F350 also offers users variable frame rate recording capabilities for overcranking and undercranking effects. The camcorder can record at rates of from four fps to 60 fps.

Two new XDCAM decks provide high-speed data transfer between compatible nonlinear devices. Both the PDW-F70 and PDW-F30 provide upconversion of XDCAM SD content to 1080i.

Sony's blue laser-based XDCAM media provides up to 120 minutes or more of HD content at 18 Mbps. The media is reusable up to 1,000 times. The new XDCAM HD products are marketed under Sony's CineAlta brand.

Sony will be in Booths SU107 and CW10300.
