Model Details

Sony has answered the demand for small "Box"-type or "Point-Of -View" cameras with the flexibility to shoot from almost anywhere while still delivering highest quality full-HD pictures for use standalone or in seamless integration with content from full-size cameras. The HDC-P1 delivers unprecedented picture quality thanks to its full use of the technologies from Sony's flagship HDC Series studio cameras. Three 2.2-million pixel 2/3"-inch type Power HAD FX CCDs and a 14bit A/D converter offer a sensitivity of F11 at 1080/50i. A wide range of recording formats are supported, including 1080/59.94i 1080/50i and 720/59.94P, 720/50P with 23.98PsF, 24PsF, 25PsF, and 29.97PsF capabilities available via optional software upgrade.

It is also the first camera of its class to feature dual servo controlled ND/CC filters and its ultra narrow 86mm body makes it ideal for 3D applications. Other applications include a range of roboitic and point-of-view HD applications, such as stadiums, conference rooms and schools. It can also be used as a "companion" camera in automated broadcast studios.


2/3" full HD "Power HAD FX" CCDs and 14-bit A/D converterThe camera has a 14-bit A/D converter with a sensitivity of F11 at 1080/50i. It supports a range of recording formats including 1080/50i, 59.94i and 720/50P and 59.94P. 23.98PsF, 24PsF, 25PsF, and 29.97PsF capabilities will be available via optional software due in Summer 2010.
Compact and Lightweight DesignThe HDC-P1 weighs only 1.7 kg (3 lb 12 oz) and its dimensions are a compact 86mm(W) x 130mm(H) x 189mm(D), allowing easy installation in space-constrained and awkward areas such as on a crane head or helicopter.
Two remote control optical filtersThe HDC-P1 is the first camera of its type with two optical filters - Neutral Density (ND) and Colour Correction (CC) - to provide more flexibility under changing lighting conditions and easier picture matching with full size system cameras. Both filters are servo driven so they can easily be controlled remotely.
Equivalent picture quality and control system as standard Sony HD camera systemThe HDC-P1 camera not only delivers comparable picture quality to a full-size Sony system camera, it is also fully compatible with Sony's current Master Set-up Units (MSU) and Remote Control Panels (RCP) using 700 Protocol - the same control system as HDC Series Cameras. This flexibility allows for comprehensive camera systems or simple point-to-point systems.
