Sony introduces SRW-9000 HDCAM SR camcorder

Sony unveiled the SRW-9000 HDCAM SR one-piece camcorder designed for TV, commercial and motion picture production at the NAB Show.

The full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution camcorder uses 2/3in CCDs with a 14-bit A/D converter and digital signal processing to capture up to 1080/60p images with a high level of detail. In standard configuration, the camcorder is capable of 4:2:2 10-bit recording at 1080/23.98p, 24p, 25p, 29.97p and 1080/50i/59.94i. It can also record 4:2:2 1080/50P/59.94p.

A range of option cards are available for additional performance and features. The HKSR-9001 option board adds dual-link HD-SDI outputs and an extra aux input port for connectivity to an external audio multiplexing device.

A picture cache board will allow the camcorder to capture and record images with variable speed (SR Motion capability) from 1fps to 60fps. It also allows the camcorder to record up to three seconds of video continuously while the camcorder is in stand-by mode.
