Model Description:
HD Portable Camera

Model Details

The HDC-1450 portable camera utilises advanced HD Digital Signal Processing with 14 bit A/D converters. It also incorporates a newly developed CCD imager that creates images in 720 50 frame progressive or 1080 50 field interlace frame rates, depending on desired final system output. The new CCD and DSP LSI are key devices that allow stunning image capture.

The HDC-1450 includes a triax cable interface, which permits simple integration with existing studio or outside broadcast infrastructure. At the base station, a triax-to-fibre convertor, HDFX-100, allows connection to a standard HDCU-1000 or HDCU-1500 fibre optic base station.


New DSP delivers standards of picture quality and performance

The newly developed DSP (Digital Signal Processing) LSI "Visual Image Processor" is the heart of the image-processing device for the HDC-1450, maximising the high-clarity images captured by the CCD. In addition, white balance, white shading, and flare are digitally corrected, allowing for stable image correction.

  • Power HAD EX CCD for high sensitivity, low noise

    The HDC-1450 camera is equipped with a newly developed three 2/3-inch type 2.2-megapixel HD CCD. Based on Sony HAD sensor technology and the latest on-chip lens structure, this new CCD offers a high sensitivity of F11 at 2000 lx and an excellent signal-to-noise ratio of 54 dB (typical).

  • 14 bit A/D conversion

    The HDC-1450 utilises a 14-bit A/D converter, that enables images captured by the high-performance CCDs to be processed with maximum precision. In particular, this high-resolution A/D conversion allows the gradation in mid-to-dark-tone areas of the picture to be faithfully reproduced. Thanks to the 14-bit A/D converter, pre-knee signal compression at highlight areas can be eliminated and the camera can clearly reproduce a high-luminance subject at a 600% dynamic range.

  • Low profile chassis design

    Ensures comfortable operation either on the shoulder or on a tripod.

  • Super-sampled 720P operation

    The use of a 1080 line HD imager which can operate at up to 50 progressive frames per second allows the camera system to output a very high quality 720/50P output. Digital filtering is employed to ensure higher resolution and lower aliasing to be achieved than would be possible with a 720P native image sensor.
