This is preliminary information prepared for NAB 2011. All features
and specifications are subject to change without notice.
Dual 3-chip 1/2-inch Type
Exmor Full-HD CMOS Sensors
The dual 3-chip Exmor CMOS image sensors provide high-quality 3D
images with an excellent sensitivity, as well as 1920 x 1080
resolution - meeting the industry standard for broadcast cameras.
The 1/2-inch sensor size helps achieve an ideal balance between
high quality and compact design - the camcorder body is of similar
size to current 2D models.
Dual Lens System
The newly developed dual lens system allows fully synchronized
operation between left and right lenses with high accuracy - in
focus, zoom, and iris adjustments. With the minimized 45 mm IAD
(Inter-Axial Distance) of the dual lens system, this camcorder
offers a wide shooting zone to capture good 3D images - especially
for near-side shooting, with its support for a 1.2 m minimum
XDCAM EX Recording
The recording format is identical to that of the highly successful
PMW-EX1R, PMW-EX3, and PMW-350/320 Series. The proven, high-speed,
and intuitive XDCAM EX workflow offers seamless integration with
leading non-linear editing software.
SxS Card Slots
Left and right images are recorded on each SxS card separately, in
synchronization. As the camcorder features two SxS card slots (one
each for the left and right), it offers a long recording duration
of over six hours in 3D (with four 64-GB cards).
A 2D shooting mode is available for additional production
flexibility. With a single SxS card, the camcorder is able to shoot
images only through the left lens. In addition, parallel recording
onto the left and right cards is useful as a method of redundant
shooting in 2D operation. (Images recorded on the left and right
cards are slightly different, because different lenses are
