Sony introduces compact HD POV camera

At the 2010 NAB Show, Sony introduced the HDC-P1 POV camera with the flexibility to shoot from almost anywhere while delivering high-quality HD pictures.

The camera can be used stand-alone or seamlessly integrated with content from full-size cameras, Sony said. The HDC-P1 delivers high picture quality thanks to its use of the same technologies borrowed from Sony’s larger HDC Series studio cameras.

Three 2.2-million pixel, 2/3in Power HAD FX CCDs and a 14-bit A/D converter offer a sensitivity of F11 at 1080/50i. A wide range of recording formats are supported, including 1080/50i, 59.94i, 720/50p and 59.94p, with 23.98PsF, 24PsF, 25PsF and 29.97PsF capabilities available via optional software upgrades (due this summer).

It is also features dual ND/CC filters, both of which are servo controlled, and its ultra-narrow, 86mm body makes it ideal for applications such as 3-D. Other applications include a range of unmanned and POV HD applications, such as stadiums, conference rooms and schools. It can also be used as a “companion” camera in automated broadcast studios.

Weighing less than 4lbs, the HDC-P1 enables easy installation in space-constrained and awkward areas such as on a crane head or helicopter. The supplied tally unit can be easily detached from the camera body, minimizing the camera size to be fitted in, for example, a pan/tilt head or an underwater housing.

The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
