The new Sony NXCAM AVCHD camcorder, planned for an early 2010 introduction, will record to Memory Stick PRO Duo media or an optional 128GB flash memory unit.

Sony Electronics is introducing a new family of professional video products that supports the AVCHD format. Designed to bring seamless, easy-to-use, solid-state production capabilities to professionals and “prosumers,” the new NXCAM family combines image quality and performance.

The first model in this series will be a professional camcorder featuring Sony’s Exmor CMOS sensor with ClearVid array to deliver HD resolution and low-light sensitivity with low noise.

The camcorder, which uses the same G lens as Sony’s HVR-Z5U camcorder, will record AVCHD up to 24Mb/s, delivering 1920 x 1080 HD images with both interlace and progressive modes along with native 1080/24p, 720/60p and MPEG-2 SD recording. The camcorder will include both HD-SDI and HDMI outputs, as well as two-channel linear PCM audio capabilities.
