Sony adds new XDCAM HD422 camcorder and deck

Sony is featuring its expanded XDCAM HD422 series with the new PDW-F800 CineAlta camcorder and PDW-F1600 deck at the NAB Show.

Both offer a frame rate of 23.98p natively in 1080 mode and multiformat recording flexibility as standard, including SD recording to support legacy formats such as MPEG IMX, DVCAM and 4:2:0 HD content. The pair also provides multiformat (1080i/720p) recording as well as HD/SD conversion and crossconversion during playback between 1080i and 720p.

Users can record HD content (about 95 minutes at 50Mb/s) to the dual-layer 50GB version of Sony's optical Professional Disc media, model PFD50DLA. The camera and deck can also handle content on PFD-23A single-layer discs.

The PDW-F800 adds variable frame-rate recording for slow- and quick-motion capabilities, also commonly known as "over-cranking" and "under-cranking." The camcorder uses three of Sony's new 2/3in Power HAD FX progressive CCDs that can produce a resolution of 1920 x 1080 effective pixels.
