As video and sound gear has become smaller and of better quality, the LAC has been able to increase its resources. This page is reserved for those items many volunteers may not know much about and the special characteristics of each. This page will also give some insight on some of the lesser known editing techniques and the special features of software applications like Adobe Creative Suite.

Sony HXCD70H Studio Camera

The HXC-D70 is an HD color video camera equipped with three-chip 2/3-type CMOS image sensors yielding approximately 2.07 million effective pixels for full HD resolution (1920 × 1080). This advanced image sensor technology coupled with the latest digital processing circuitry enables the capture of very high-quality HD images, with a sensitivity of F12 (59.94i) / F13(50i) and an SN ratio of 56 dB (w/o Noise Suppression (NS)mode). Multi-core transmission technology comes standard with the HXC-D70 camera system. But now there are two different signal transmission options for system flexibility – optical fiber and digital triax transmission technologies. For the optical fiber transmission option, the HXC-D70 camera head is mechanically docked with the CA-FB70 camera adaptor that allows the camera to transmit the signals via optical fiber cable to the HXCU-FB70 camera control unit. For the digital triax transmission option, the HXC-D70 camera head is mechanically docked with the CA-TX70 camera adaptor that allows the camera to transmit the signals to the HXCU-100 camera control unit via triax cable. Note: HXC-D70H is camera head only


Highlights:

  • The HXC-D70 camera system offers flexibility and provides an ideal solution for migration from SD to HD (Inherited basic user interface from DXC SERIES camera system)
  • Offering Excellent Picture Quality through the use of Sony's advanced technologies for 2/3" Exmor C-MOS sensor and a high performance digital signal processing including wide-band down converter both in camera and CCU
  • Variety of picture adjustment functions including, Skin-tone detail, Selection of Multiple Gamma+Hyper-gamma, Knee-Saturation, Adaptive Matrix, Color Saturation, Low Key saturation, Lens aberration compensation, 2x digital video extender. Auto Focus (Fujinon 16x lens), Focus assist functions
