Sony PXW-X500//U (PXWX500//U, PXW/X500//U, pxw-x500//u) B4 mount Professional XDCAM Camcorder
The PXW-X500 is the successor to the very successful PMW-500 XDCAM. Much like its predecessor, the new PXW-X500 is equipped with three 2/3-inch type Full HD CCD sensors employing the latest CCD technology providing a high sensitivity of F12 at 50i (F11 at 60i) and improved S/N ratio of 60 dB (with NS on). The camcorder also offers minimum illumination of 0.003 lx (typical) in 1080/59.94i mode +42 dB gain, with 16-frame accumulation.
The PXW-X500 offers the latest XAVC Intra and Long GOP recording implementation, while still offering legacy codecs such as MPEG IMX, DVCAM and MPEG HD 422. The PXW-X500 is the preferred choice for the working broadcast camera professional thanks to the flexibility of modern codec choices that ensure that your investment is futureproof for the forseable future.
Records a wide variety of HD and SD formats, including XAVC
XAVC Intra and XAVC Long GOP, MPEG SStP 422 Lite (HDCAM SR), MPEG HD 422 and MPEG HD 420, as well as MPEG IMX and DVCAM.
Direct compatibility with NLEs
Options allow the camcorder to record directly in Avid DNxHD and Apple ProRes.
Slow & Quick Motion options
Up to 30 fps for MPEG HD 422 (as standard) and up to 120 fps for XAVC (as an option).
Includes wireless operation, picture cache recording, built-in GPS, Digital Extender, variable ND filter control, HyperGamma, and more.
High quality XAVC Intra and XAVC Log GOP recordings
The PXW-X500 supports not only MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps in MXF (Material eXchange Format), which is widely accepted by major broadcasters worldwide, but also XAVC Intra and XAVC Long GOP codecs. XAVC technology is based on the H.264 standard, which provides an exceptional performance compression technology. XAVC Intra (frame) compression means that every frame is encoded independent of the other frames – providing a better quality picture, without compromises. With a Long GOP codec, only certain frames are encoded individually.
This allows the codec to squeeze the video into a much smaller bitrate than Intra technology. The main benefit is faster ingest and editing. XAVC Long GOP files also require less storage space than XAVC Intra files, providing budget savings on recording media. The XAVC codec adopts 10 bit sampling for high definition recording with rich tonal expression. The bite rate of XAVC recording is 111 or 112 Mbps at 1080/59.94i or 50i and 89, or 112 Mbps at 1080/23.98P or 25p. The high bit rate gives a better quality picture.
Switchable recordings for greater flexibility
As well as shooting at XAVC HD, MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps and MPEG HD 420 35 Mbps, the camcorder also supports MPEG SStP 422 Lite (HDCAM SR), as well as SD MPEG IMX and DVCAM at 25 Mbps in MXF file format. High-quality MPEG HD422 50 Mbps is fully compliant with the latest EBU recommendations for long-form broadcast production and is widely accepted in broadcasting stations and production houses. This recording capability makes the PXW-X500 ideal for a wide range of different applications, including newsgathering and documentary production.
