Sony is also introducing the HVR-M35 playback and recording deck.
These new products expand Sony’s line-up of HD production t
echnologies, which includes the recently introduced PMW-EX1 XDCAM EX™
solid-state memory camera and the soon-to-be-available HVR-HD1000
shoulder-mount HDV camcorder.
“These new tools enhance the versatility of our professional
HDV lineup, and open up a world of possibilities for HD digital video
production,” said Bob Ott, vice president of professional video and
audio products for Sony Electronics. “Sony’s new HDV camcorders and decks are
ideal for documentaries, electronic newsgathering,
independent production, music videos, web streaming, and more.”
The new camcorders use Sony’s 1/3-inch 3 ClearVid CMOS Sensor™ system enhanced
by Exmor™ technology. With a 45-degree rotated pixel layout, the 3 ClearVid CMOS
offers sufficient pixel surface area while maintaining high resolution. The
Exmor technology features a unique column-parallel analog-to-digital conversion
technique and dual noise canceling, resulting in high-quality digital signals
with extremely low noise, similar to the imaging technology used in the PMW-EX1
camera. The two new technologies combine to allow the new camcorders to perform
significantly better in low-light environments with sensitivity of 1.5 lux. *
This imaging technology is complemented by Sony’s Enhanced
Imaging Processor™ (EIP) system to achieve high resolution,
high sensitivity, wide dynamic range, and excellent color
Users can attach different lenses for extra
flexibility, and both models have a universal standard
1/3-inch bayonet mount mechanism for easier lens changes.
Each camcorder comes standard with a 12x high-quality,
multi-purpose Carl Zeiss lens for HD video, with a
Vario-Sonnar™ T* coating to reduce reflections. A specially
designed 8x wide-angle lens is also available as an option.
These new lenses give the camcorders the same functionality
as Sony’s popular fixed-lens camcorders like the HVR-Z1 and
HVR-V1, thanks to built-in features such as auto-focus,
optical stabilizer, and automatic back-focus
adjustment. Using a special adaptor, users can also attach
the α lens series designed for
Sony’s consumer digital SLR still cameras.
The camcorders offer 1080, 24p and 30p native progressive
recording. The 3 ClearVid CMOS Sensor system and EIP
technology create true 1080p images, which can then be
recorded as progressive signals by the HVR-Z7E and HVR-S270
camcorders in the HDV format. The progressive HDV streams
can be output from an i.LINK® interface and used for
progressive editing with compatible NLE software.
HVR-Z7E and HVR-S270 can switch between 1080p, 1080i in the
HDV format, DVCAM™, and DV recording, and both can
down-convert material from HD to SD, and output the video
signals through its i.LINK interface and other SD output
connectors. The HVR-Z7E has an HDMI output. The HVR-S270 is
available with HD-SDI or SD-SDI connectivity, and also
supports embedded audio and timecode.
The HVR-Z7E and
HVR-S270 use Sony’s XtraFine™ LCD and XtraFine electronic
viewfinder for high-resolution and high-contrast images with
remarkable color reproduction. The HVR-S270 features a new
LCD/EVF configuration named “Dual Finder,” where the LCD
located on the EVF enables multiple styles of operation.
The new camcorders offer the option of hybrid recording when
using a supplied memory-recording unit, which attaches
directly to the back of the HVR-Z7E or the side of the
HVR-S270 and eliminates the need for cables. The unit
automatically synchronizes with the recording action of the
camcorder and a special shoe connector inputs and outputs an
HDV/DV stream and supplies power to the unit.
captures the HDV1080i, DVCAM, or DV stream output from the
camcorder and can record HDV/DVCAM/DV files to a standard
CompactFlash® solid-state memory card, while users are
simultaneously recording to tape.
It will be compatible
with Sony’s Professional 306x CompactFlash card as well as
standard CompactFlash cards (2GB minimum capacity, 133x
minimum speed). The recording times on an 8 and 16 GB
CompactFlash card in HDV, DVCAM and DV format are
approximately 36 and 72 minutes**, respectively.
HVR-Z7E can deliver more than 60 minutes of recording time
on miniDV videotapes, and approximate recording times of 63
minutes with Sony’s DigitalMaster™ cassettes (PHDVM-63DM).
The HVR-S270 also accepts standard-size cassettes to provide
more than 4.5 hours of continuous recording, with
approximate recording times of 4 hours, 36 minutes** on Sony
