Excellent picture quality for High Definition production over digital triax.
The HSC-300R incorporates digital triax technology and is equipped with sophisticated 16-bit A/D conversion circuitry as well as superb three 2/3-inch CCDs to bring out a high level of picture quality over conventional digital triax infrastructures. The camera also has a built-in high-quality down-convertor for superior SD images, as standard. It also incorporates Neutral Density (ND) and Colour Correction (CC) optical servo filter units.
A wide range of capturing modes are available including 1080/29.97PsF* and 1080/25PsF*1 as well as 1080/50i, 1080/59.94i, 720/50p, 720/59.94p, 576/50i, and 480/59.94i.
* Optional HZC-PSF3 software is required.
The HSC Series camera is equipped with field-proven 2/3-inch type full-resolution 1920 x 1080 CCDs. Due to Sony’s advanced sensor technologies, the CCD imager offers a high sensitivity of F10 for 59.94 Hz and F11 for 50 Hz with a remarkable signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) of -60 dB (HD) for high-quality pictures in all kinds of demanding shooting environments.
The HSC Series camera incorporates a high-performance 16-bit A/D converter with the latest technologies that enables captured images to be processed with maximum precision. Also, the Auto Lens Aberration Compensation function can optimise lens performance to provide stunning picture quality.
Digital Extender function expands the size of the image by a factor of 2 in the centre of captured images by the image sensor. This function works without decrease in sensitivity, such as F-number drop, which occurs by the use of conventional optical extender functions.
The HSC-300R utilises a very high-quality digital triax system that expands its operability in field applications, as well as for studio production. This digital triax system can be integrated into conventional triax-based infrastructures, enabling an easy upgrade from existing systems. The latest digital triax transmission system offers long cable runs of up to 1800 m (5904 feet)* via ø14.5 mm cable between the camera and the HSCU-300R.
* The maximum cable length depends on the camera system configuration, lens type, and the number of cable connections.
The highly versatile HDLA-1500, HDLA-1505, and HDLA-1507 Large Lens Adaptors are also available for the HSC-300R. These adaptors allow the camera to be used for many different production applications and for users to choose the optimum viewfinder for the shooting condition. This capability makes the HSC-300R the most flexible portable camera in its class. Installing the HDLA-1500/1505/1507 Large Lens Adaptor is very simple and eliminates time-consuming adjustments such as lens centring or additional wiring.
