Sony HSC-100RF HAD FX CCD Sensors Portable HD/SD Camera
The Sony HSC-100RF is HD studio and system camera system that is equipped with three 2/3″ CCD imagers and offers 1.5G optical fiber transmission at 1080 @ 59.94i/50i and 720 @ 59.94P/50P. Utilizing the new imagers, 16-bit A/D and DSP LSI, the picture performance of the camera system has greatly been improved from previous generation cameras.
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.
Sophisticated 2/3-inch CCDs
The Sony HSC-100RF 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.
High-quality 16-bit A/D conversion and DSP LSI
The Sony HSC-100RF 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
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.
Auto Lens Aberration Compensation 2 (ALAC2) function
The ALAC2 function automatically reduces lens chromatic aberration by both horizontal and vertical compensation when a lens supporting ALAC2 function is attached.
Versatile camera interfaces
The Sony HSC-100RF camera provides a wide range of inputs and outputs via the connector panel such as HD-SDI output, SD-SDI output, VF signal, return signal, and SDI Prompter signal. An intercom channel (ENG/PROD) is also provided.
1.5 Gbps optical fibre operation
The Sony HSC-100RF camera incorporates 1.5-Gbps high bitrate optical fibre transmission system, as standard, which enables signal transmission over a long distance. The developed optical fibre transmission system offers long cable runs of up to 2000 m (6562 feet)* between the camera and the HSCU-300RF.
* The maximum cable length depends on the camera system configuration, lens type, and the number of cable connections.
HD to SD down-converter
Sony HSC-100RF camera is equipped with a built-in high-quality down-converter for superior SD images, as standard.
Selection of multiple gamma tables
In addition to artistic and skillful lighting, in-camera gamma setting plays an important role in dealing with contrast range and giving a specific “look” to an image. In order to meet a broad array of customer demands, seven types of standard-gamma and four types of hyper-gamma tables are provided.
