|Excellent picture quality for High Definition production over optical fibre
The Sony HSC-100RF incorporates 1.5 Gbps optical fibre technology
and is equipped with sophisticated 16-bit A/D conversion circuitry as well as superb three 2/3-inch CCDs to bring out a high level of picture quality for signal transmission over a long distance.
Sony HSC-100RF Camera also has a built-in high-quality down-converter for superior SD images, as standard.
Features of HSC-100RFMulti-format operation
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 HSC Series 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 HSC Series 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 optimize lens performance to provide stunning picture quality.
Digital Extender function
The Sony HSC-100RF 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.
In order to survive the stresses of professional use, the main
chassis of the HSC Series is made of a magnesium-alloy casting. This rigid body makes the camera highly durable and helps to protect its lightweight precision components such as the integrated optical and electronics.
Position-adjustable shoulder pad
The position of the shoulder pad can be adjusted - either forwards or backwards - to provide users with the optimum weight balance.
This is particularly useful when the camera is docked with any type of lens or camera adaptor. In addition, no tool is required for this adjustment.
HD to SD down-converter
The 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 skilful 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.
Hyper-Gamma is a set of new transfer functions designed to provide powerful contrast handling by making maximum use of the capacity and wide dynamic range of the CCD sensor. These functions are
quickly accessed via the set-up menu, and camera operators can select one curve from a choice of four that best suits their needs and conditions. For example, they can select to enhance natural
reproduction in low-key areas to achieve greater flexibility in wide dynamic scenes.
The multi-matrix function of the HSC Series cameras allows colour adjustments to be applied over the colour range specified by the
operator. The colour spectrum is divided into 16 areas of adjustment, where the hue and/or saturation of each area can be modified. This function is especially useful when only the hue of
certain colour's needs to be adjusted for special-effects work. Multi-matrix is extremely effective for capturing images with similar colour tone in a system configured with existing SD cameras
or other models of camera. This function enables the picture from another model of camera to be easily matched.
This enables ideal colour conversion for shooting even under excessively strong ambient lighting conditions such as live
shooting under bright monochromatic blue light. These conditions would typically cause a conventional matrix function to exceed the colour conversion range.
Master White Gain function
The Master White Gain function of the Sony HSC-100RF Series of cameras enables step-less adjustment of gain levels. This makes it
possible to adjust the gain level more precisely compared to conventional stepwise adjustment.
