HD Camera System
Sony introduces the new HDC-1700 Dual-fomat HD Camera System equipped with sophisticated three-chip 2/3-inch CCD image sensors and the latest 16-bit A/D converter to provide superior picture quality. The HDC-1700 supports HD and SD signal formats including 1080/50i, 1080/59.54i, 720/50p, and 720/59.94p. For flexibility, there are many HDC Series accessories that can be utilized, such as optional HD viewfinders and large lens adaptors. And the HDC-1700 is a truly cost-effective camera that also delivers genuine user-friendness.
Upgrade program for 4K
With the optional HKCU-2020 4K/HDR Processor Board and HZC-PVR20 Signal Format Software, the HDC-1700 can be upgraded for 4K resolution content creation as well as 4K Live HDR (High Dynamic Range).
Superb Image Quality with Cutting-edge Technologies
With 2/3-inch CCD image sensors, the newly developed digital signal processor (DSP) LSI provides superior S/N levels as well as better functionality. Also, a 16-bit A/D converter produces optimal visual imagery and enhanced black reproduction.
Adaptive Matrix Function
With the Adaptive Matrix function, images with well-balanced details can be reproduced even in strong monochromatic light conditions, such as at stage events.
Options Expand Usage
There are many optional accessories for the HDC-1700, including the HKC-DF20 Dual Optical Filter Unit, HZC-PSF20 Signal Format Software (1080/23.98p, 24p, 25p, 29.97p), and HZC-PRV20 Signal Format Software (1080/50p, 59.94p). These options support a range of different shooting scenes and requirements.
Auto Lens Chromatic Aberration Compensation (ALAC-2)
Alongside the advanced DSP LSI, the ALAC-2 function automatically compensates for lens chromatic aberration*. ALAC-2 works in both horizontal and vertical directions.
*Lenses need to be corresponded to ALAC feature.
Optical Fiber Transmission
The HDC-1700 is capable of long-distance signal transmission up to 2,000 meters (6,562 feet) with the HDCU-1700 Camera Control Unit,and up to 4,000 meters (13,123 feet) with the HDCU-2000. The HDC-1700 is interchangable with the HDC-2000 Series in a system.
HDLA Large Lens Adaptor Maximizes Operability
HDLA-1500, HDLA-1505, and HDLA-1507 adaptors maximise the operability of the HDC-1700. These optional adapters provide flexibility when applications require a large studio lens, and camera operators want to maintain hard camera control. They facilitate simple connectivity without time-consuming wiring and adjustments.
With the MEMS-Acceleration Sensor, the horizontal level can be displayed on the viewfinder screen, which helps particularly with wide-angle shooting.
