|High picture quality
The Sony PXW-X320 incorporates three 1/2-inch-type Full HD Exmor CMOS sensors (1920 x 1080) to achieve high resolution, high sensitivity (F11 at 59.94 Hz / F12 at 50 Hz), low noise (60 dB),
and a wide dynamic range to give more freedom of expression for creative shooting.
Three-dimensional noise reducer
In addition to existing noise reduction features, the Sony PXW-X320 also includes a three-dimensional noise reducer. This not only
detects vertical and horizontal direction in a frame picture but also noise components in a time axis, utilising correlation characteristics between video frames. Using this feature, the S/N
ratio is improved to 60 dB, which is the highest level of noise reduction in a 1/2-inch-type Full HD shoulder camcorder.
Selectable format and bit rates
The Sony PXW-X320 incorporates XAVC in the HD domain at a 100 Mbps data rate, enabling the creation of rich content with 10-bit quality. It is
capable of recording XVAC Intra at 1920 x 1080 Full HD 59.94i, 50i, 29.97p, 25p and 23.98p, or 1280 x 720 HD 59.94p and 50p. The camcorder can also record Full HD video (1920 x 1080) at up to 50
Mbps using XAVC Long and MPEG HD422, as well as MPEG HD at 35 Mbps / 25 Mbps, MPEG IMX at 50 Mbps, and DVCAM at 25 Mbps in MXF file, as standard supported formats.
High resolution 3.5-inch colour LCD viewfinder
With a large, easy-to-read 3.5-inch QHD colour LCD viewfinder as a standard accessory, the PXW-X320 offers outstanding resolution of
960 x 540 pixels, strongly supporting critical focus control during HD shooting. The viewfinder cover can be flipped up to enhance visibility when the camera is set on a tripod.
Wireless adaptor increases operational flexibility
The Sony PXW-X320 is designed to support wireless operation using an optional wireless adapter, the CBK-WA101, which can be attached
without any additional cables. Using this adapter, you can stream out pictures for live shooting via an IP network. After shooting, you can select a recorded proxy or high resolution* file from the
list and upload it to an on-premises server or to a cloud service via a mobile Wireless LAN router or 3G/4G/LTE device. The adapter also provides live monitoring and remote control of the Sony
PXW-X320 by mobile tablet or smartphone with mobile application software.
* A USB connection is required.
Enhanced flash band reducer
Incorporating a newly developed algorithm, the Sony PXW-X320 detects and processes flash
banding inside its hardware before recording begins. This provides greater flexibility in reducing flash banding across different shooting environments. This feature can be disabled from the menu
if you want to use Content Browser for flash band reduction after shooting. You are free to choose to reduce flash band before or after shooting, depending on each shooting circumstance.
The Sony PXW-X320 has a User Menu feature that is typically associated only with high-end camcorders. This feature allows you to pick and organize frequently used menu
items much in the same way as the bookmark feature of a web browser. By using this feature, you can save a lot of time - you won't have to repeatedly search for specific menu items - and
experience more efficient operation.
Variety of interfaces including SD / HD-SDI and i.Link
Two lines of SDI output connection are provided by
the Sony PXW-X320. This enables, for example, the director and camera operator to concurrently check shot content via two separate monitors. Also, for monitoring purposes this camcorder can be
connected via HDMI to professional displays as well as domestic-use TVs with an HDMI connector. The i.LINK connector can be used for HDV when SP 1440 (FAT) mode is selected and for DV when DVCAM (FAT)
mode is selected, for both input and output signal flows.
Supplied with 1/2-inch 16x HD zoom lens
With a 1/2-inch type bayonet lens mount, the Sony PXW-X320 is supplied with a 16x high definition auto-focus optical zoom lens.
Low power consumption
The lightweight Sony PXW-X320 has a low power consumption of 25W (with viewfinder, lens and microphone while recording).
