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