Sony introduces HVR-V1U 24p HDV camcorder

September 22, 2006

Sony has expanded its line-up of HDV products for professionals with the HVR-V1U HDV compact camcorder.

The new model delivers true 24p progressive scan capture and uses three of Sony’s ClearVid CMOS Sensor chips combined with Sony's Enhanced Imaging Processor technology to provide greater sensitivity, higher resolution, lower noise and a wider dynamic range.

The camcorder enables simultaneous recording to both an optional attachable hard-disk recording unit (model HVR-DR60) and to the videotape used in the camcorder.

The HVR-V1U’s ClearVid CMOS Sensor system natively captures progressive images at 24p, 30p or 60p, while maintaining full 1080 HDV resolution. Footage shot using the progressive scan feature can be played back on any of Sony’s HDV professional camcorders and VTRs, and be easily edited with compatible non-linear editing systems.
