Sony to unveil new HD studio cameras
Sony Electronics will introduce a new line of HD studio cameras designed to make HD production more accessible without sacrificing quality.
The new HSC-300 and HXC-100 cameras use Sony’s digital triax transmission technology, which supports use of existing triax cable infrastructures.
The HSC-300 camera is compatible with Sony’s existing large lens adaptors and can be used with triax cable runs of up to .8mi. The HXC-100 model can be used for runs of up to .52mi. Both models feature a 2/3in Power HAD FX CCD with 2.2 million pixels and are switchable between 1080i and 720p 50/60Hz, with 525i and 625 SD modes available from the camera head and CCU. They offer comprehensive image controls with wide dynamic range and a 14-bit A/D.
