Sony Unveils Latest AVCHD Camcorder Line

Sony Electronics has announced the introduction of a new family of AVCHD format products directed towards professional and “pro-sumer” users. The new line has been dubbed “NXCAM” and the first product out of the gates is a camcorder built around Sony’s Exmor CMOS sensor array.

“Building on our success with file-based solid-state technology, the time is right to bring to market a memory-based camcorder using the latest AVCHD technology with low-cost memory cards,” said Tatsuro Kurachi, group marketing manager of Sony’s broadcast and professional audio/video group. “Coupled with the latest innovations in lens and sensor design, this new family will offer outstanding picture performance for professional applications such as event videography, commercial or corporate video production.”

The new NXCAM camcorder delivers 1920x1080 HD resolution and can operate in both interlaced and progressive scanning modes. It also supports 1080/24p, 720/60p and MPEG-2 SD recording and offers two channels of linear PCM audio.
