  • 16:9/4:3 Switchable The DNW-9WS is equipped with 2/3-inch 520K Widescreen Power Had 1000 IT CCDs. It gives superior quality digital recording in both aspect ratios.
  • Low Acoustic Noise A sophisticated noise barrier is incorporated in the VTR section to make camcorder operators more comfortable, and to prevent transport noise pickup by the onboard microphone during shooting.
  • Diagnostic Information for Easy Maintenance The DNW-9WS incorporates a sophisticated diagnostic system to detect malfunctions within the camcorder. Digital signal processing improves the ability to specify the precise location and nature of a fault: camera faults are indicated by warning lights in
  • Redesigned Cassette Compartment The cassette compartment does not pop up during cassette loading or ejecting, which helps to prevent damage to the cassette compartment mechanism. Cassettes are loaded vertically through a narrower entry that helps to keep out dust particles. The window o
  • New Betacam SX Tape or Current Metal Particle Tape Can Be Used Conventional Betacam SP metal particle tape (type BCT-MA or UVWT) can be used in the DNW-9WS, so tape is always readily available and, with the DNW-9WS, recording time is double the stated duration of the type BCT-MA and UVWT tapes. To achieve even higher
  • Turbo Gain: High Sensitivity The Turbo Gain function of the DNW-9WS instantly raises the gain of the camera to +42dB at the touch of a button on the side of the camcorder, allowing immediate adaptation to extremely low light shooting conditions. By combining DPR Plus (Dual Pixel Read
  • Auto Tracing White Balance (ATW) The DNW-9WS camcorder is equipped with Auto Tracing White Balance (ATW) capability which enables automatic adjustment of white balance according to the overall scene lighting conditions. When lighting conditions change quickly -- for example, moving from
  • TruEyeâ„¢ Process In conventional RGB analog digital processing, some non-linear signal processing occurs after gamma correction, such as knee and white clip, and this can result in hue errors -- a phenomenon that is particularly obvious in extreme highlight conditions. Th
  • DynaLatitudeâ„¢ Based on the TruEye system, the DNW-9WS further offers a unique new feature called DynaLatitude Function which adaptively manages the contrast of each pixel according to a histogram of video signal level distribution. DynaLatitude brings a new dimension t
  • Optional Color Viewfinder The DNW-9WS is equipped with a lightweight 2-inch monochrome viewfinder, the BVF-V20W, as a supplied accessory. It allows easy focusing even in 16:9 widescreen mode. There is also an optional 1.35-inch color viewfinder available, the BVF-VC10W, which allo
  • Color Playback without an External Adaptor The DNW-9WS allows color playback together with two audio channels without an external adaptor, making it easy to verify recording results and send recordings to the studio via microwave transmission. Recordings can also be reviewed in the camcorder viewf
  • Variable Speed Electronic Shutter In order to capture clear images of high-speed moving subjects without motion blur, the DNW-9WS has several shutter speeds available: 1/100, 1/125, 1/250, 1/500, 1/1000, and 1/2000 of a second.
  • Comprehensive Menu Control Setup parameters are well organized in a two-layer menu system, categorized as User Menus and Engineer Menus. User Menus allow access to only the standard setup functions needed by operators. Engineer Menus allow access to all camcorder setup functions. M
  • Setup Card for Uniform Camcorder Settings The Betacam SX camcorder family allows all of the setup parameters for one complete camera setup to be stored on a removable Setup Card. These setup cards allow operators to set up this camcorder quickly, easily and accurately in the field. Several differ
  • Comprehensive LCD Display The extensive LCD display on the DNW-9WS provides critical information on VTR operating status. Time Code, CTL and User-bit data, Tape Remaining and Battery Capacity are displayed via a bargraph meter. A digital audio peak meter allows precise adjustment
  • Superimposed Camera ID on Color Bars For easy confirmation of which camcorder was used for an individual recording, a camera ID can also be superimposed on color bars. The camera ID is set using the system control menu.
  • Fail-Safe Audio Recording Through the VTR menu, four channels of audio can be assigned according to the user's needs. When Parallel mode is selected, the same signals are recorded by CH-1/CH-3 and CH-2/CH-4. In Separate mode, CH-3 automatically records the front microphone and CH-
  • Precision Audio Level Adjustment The audio level of the front microphone can be easily and precisely adjusted by using the rotary switch located under the lens converter of the camcorder. Positioning the rotary switch in this location helps to prevent an operator's hands from accidentall
  • Stereo Audio Line Output (5-pin XLR) The 5-pin XLR connector on the DNW-9WS carries two audio output channels. Either CH-1/2 or CH-3/4 can be selected through the VTR menu.
  • User-Friendly Controls The DNW-9WS is carefully designed for simple operation. Switches are located in similar positions on both Betacam SX and Betacam SP camcorders, so operators accustomed to suing Sony analog equipment will immediately find these new digital camcorders to be
  • Lithium-Ion Battery Lithium-ion batteries provide higher capacity in a smaller, lighter size than the previously available battery technologies. The DNW-9WS will operate for more than 165 minutes using a fully charged BP-L90 Lithium-ion Battery. If the smaller BP-L60 Lithium
  • New AC Adaptor The optional new AC-DN1 ACC Adaptor attaches directly to the DNW-9WS to provide uninterrupted power to shoot special events or extended conference sessions. The AC-DN1 can also be used to slow charge the lithium-ion batteries in an emergency.
  • Test Output The DNW-9WS incorporates a test output port, providing composite video, red, green or blue signals for camera testing.
  • Shot Data and Shot Markers The DNW-9WS allows the operator to record shooting data on tape. Data such as Date, Time, Camera ID, Cassette Number and Shot Number can all be recorded during the shooting process. Shot Data can be used to quickly retrieve materials during editing. Furth
  • Multiple Tally Functions In addition to tally functions on the front and back of the camcorder, the DNW-9WS has a camera tally on the viewfinder at the side of the eyepad, so the operator can see if the tally is on even when looking into the viewfinder from a distance.
  • PC Setup and Remote Control For GUI-based remote control of camcorder setup, the BZP-100 Camera Setup Unit can be connected to the DNW-9WS via the 6-pin remote interface. The Sony Interactive Status Reporting (ISR) feature is also incorporated into the BZP-100. Furthermore, by conne
