An optional software upgrade enables additional frame rates such as 1080PsF (24P, 25P, 30P), making the Sony HDC-1700 a highly flexible system camera.
The HDC-1700 is a cost-effective solution for a wide range of HD live production applications, including sports, live events and studio work.
Superior imaging capability
The Sony HDC-1700 utilises a 16-bit A/D converter and three-chip 2/3″ Power HAD FX CCD image sensor to deliver for superior picture quality. It features Auto Lens Chromatic Aberration Compensation (ALAC-2) to maintain image quality throughout the full extent of the image.
The HDC-1700 works with Sony’s HDLA range of large lens adaptors, making operation smoother for camera operators, and saving set-up time by removing the need for complex cabling. The camera is a B4 mount, as is standard in broadcast camera systems, so is also compatible with a wide range of HD broadcast lenses, including Fujinon lenses and Canon lenses.
For increased flexibility the Sony HDC -700 is fully compatible with Sony’s HDC-2500 and HDC-1500 cameras and accessories, and HDCU-1000/1500 and HDCU-2000/2500 CCUs. This allows you to integrate the HDC-1700 into a wide variety of workflows. It also offers the benefit of operational familiarity to camera operators and engineers alike.
