Sony Will Raise CineAlta Bar at NAB2007 With New F23
3/1/2007

Sony Electronics is shooting for the peak of its CineAlta line of digital acquisition products with its new F23 camera, which will support 4:4:4 1920x1080 RGB imaging.

The system will join the HDC-F950 camera at the high end of the CineAlta line. It uses three 2.2 Megapixel, 2/3-inch type progressive CCD imagers and a 14-bit A/D converter. The system will support 1080/23.98p, 24p, 25p, 29.97p, 50p, 59.94p, 50i and 59.94i formats.

"With this new system, content creators and program producers will have one more extremely versatile high-end production tool in their arsenal," said Rob Willox, director of marketing for professional content creation at Sony Electronics.

When used with Sony's SRW-1 VTR, the new camera system can capture and record variable speed images from 1p to 60p (1P to 30 fps at 4:4:4 and 1p to 60 fps at 4:2:2) at the full HD resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. This allows for quick- or slow-motion functionality, (undercranking or overcranking) to produce special motion effects.

Sony will also unveil its next-generation HD studio camera, the dual-format HDC-1400, a follow-up to the HDC-1500 multiformat series of cams.

The new HDC-1400 camera system operates in either 1080/59.94i or 720/59.94p modes. It shares the vast majority of the image-making capabilities of the HDC-1500 system, including three-skin detail control, multimatrix color control and high-quality SD downconversion capability.

Sony will be in booth SU906.   Print Page
