Sony HDC-2000W (HDC2000W, HDC/2000W, hdc-2000w) 3G Double-Speed Multi-Format HD Studio System Camera - White

Comes with 2 Years Sony Prime Support Warranty - Beware of grey imports.

The HDC-2000 3G double-speed multi format studio system camera incorporates Sony’s advanced technologies for studio cameras. Threehigh end 2/3-inch Progressive IT CCDs and Digital Signal Processing (DSP) LSI with 16 bit A/D converter provides amazing picture quality with very little noise and high dynamic range.

3G capable, 3D and double speed slow motion capture

  • The HDC-2000 features 3G transmission and has multi-format capability, from 1080/100i and 720/100p (double speed slow motion) to 1080/50p, as well as a wide range of other HD formats including 1080/50i, 720/50p,1080/25p and 1080/24p. The camera also provides 3D production capabilities with dual camera transmission via a single hybrid fibre cable.

High picture quality and high performance

  • The HDC-2000 features a 2/3-type wide Progressive IT CCD for 2,200,000 pixels and a signal processing LSI, both newly developed to help achieve a high level of image quality via improved S/N, high resolution, and low smear compared to previous models. A 16-bit AD converter allows for optimal picture quality and enhanced black reproduction.

Slow motion via 2x speed recording

  • 1080/50i-59.94i and 720/50P-59.94P formats are supported, as well as 1080/23.98PsF-24PsF-25PsF-29.97PsF and 1080/ 50P-59.94P progressive formats, and 1080/100i-119.88i and 720/100P-119.88P slow-motion 2x speed recording formats.

Standard 3G optical digital transmission unit

  • 3G optical digital transmission of signals between the camera and camera control unit (CCU) is included and allows the following kinds of video signal transmission and system configurations:

1080/50P-60P progressive video signal transmission

  • Transmission of 2Å~ speed recording signals such as 1080/100i-119.88i for production of slow-motion video
  • Transmission of HD prompter, HD TRUNK, and network TRUNK signals that utilize empty bands during 1080/50i-60i and 720/50P-60P operation
  • Dual camera system for transmitting video signals from a second HD camera to two CCUs using just one optical fibre/multi-cable
  • Sub-camera system for transmitting video signals from both an HDC2000 and another sub-camera—such as the HDCP1— using just one optical fibre/multi-cable and outputting their signals from one CCU

Adaptive-matrix colour-reproduction function

  • This function accurately controls calculation factors for performing accurate colour conversion when shooting. This makes precise colour conversion possible even when shooting under conditions that would otherwise exceed the colour conversion range of traditional matrix functions, such as under strong monochromatic blue light sources.
  • Multi-matrix colour correction for matching multiple cameras
  • In addition to the standard 6-axis matrix function, the camera has a multi-matrix function that permits you to adjust the hue and chroma for colour components in 16-axis directions independently. This is quite useful in colour matching among multiple cameras.
  • Knee and low-key saturation for strong and low-key lighting
  • Change of hue and decrease in chroma that occur in highlighted areas can be compensated. This enables reproduction of natural skin tones under strong lighting. Saturation in low-key zones can be compensated. Thus, compensation for colour reproduction in all zones is enabled in combination with matrix colour compensation and knee saturation functions.

Selection of multiple gamma tables

  • Seven types of standard and 4 types of hyper gamma tables are provided with this camera. The hyper gamma values enable cinema-like image creations with wide dynamic range, which are different from those achieved with conventional video gamma. Gamma tables created with CvpFileEditor™ can be saved to a “Memory Stick”, or registered to HDC-2000 from the MSU-1000/1500 or RCP-1500 series.

Versatile detail control functions

  • A skin-tone detail function/Natural skin detail function allows control (emphasis or suppression) of the detail level for specific hues or chroma areas in the image by creating a detail gate signal from colour components of your specified hue, such as skin tones. The detail levels of three kinds of hues can be adjusted independently at the same time. The HDC-2000 also features the natural skin detail function, which allows for adjustment of the detail gate signal, allowing even more vivid distinction of areas like skin that you want to make smooth while selectively keeping areas like eyebrows that don’t require smoothing.

Numerous viewfinder functions

  • Along with items such as operation messages, a zebra pattern, a safety-zone marker, and a centre marker, camera settings may also be displayed on the viewfinder screen. Furthermore, there are other indicators arranged above and below the viewfinder, such as a tally lampand a warning indicator to tell you that one or more settings are other than standard. Selections and settings for viewfinder display items, a safety-zone marker or centre marker, screen size marker, etc. can be made quickly and easily using setup menus displayed on the viewfinder screen or an external monitor. Assignable switches for operating the viewfinder are located on the rear panel of the camera. These switches are linked to viewfinder assignable switches, such as those featured on HDVF-EL70, and allow for using the camera’s buttons to perform functions like image zooming within the viewfinder.

Wide variety of input/output interfaces

  • In addition to 3G/HD/SD-SDI output and HD/SD-SDI input, the HDC-2000 features a wide variety of input/output interfaces, including Network TRUNK function, HD TRUNK function and HD prompter function.

User-friendly operation

  • Featuring a stylish exterior with a low overall height, the viewfinder’s position is kept as low as possible, bringing it closer to the optical axis of the lens. The camera also has a switch to which various functions can be assigned on the rear panel. You can activate your desired function, such as electronic colour-temperature conversion, instantly when shooting by assigning it to the switch in advance.

USB connector

  • Connect a USB drive to the USB connector to save and load setup menu setting data.

Function for prevention of electrical shock

  • When the power connection is unsafe, this shuts off the power supply from the connected Camera Control Unit.
