The Sony HSC-100R Digital Triax Broadcast Camera is an HD/SD camera with a digital triax CCU input. The triax system integrates into conventional triax-based infrastructures, allowing upgrades from existing systems, and supports cable runs up to 3,937 ft to an optional CCU. The camera features a 2/3″ type CCD sensor offering F10 sensitivity for 19.94 and F11 for 1080i50, with -60dB signal-to-noise ratio. It also records in 720p and 1080PsF and down-converts to high-quality SD. An optional HZC-PSF3 software is required for 1080/29.97PsF/25PsF. The lens mount is Sony Bayonet. Inputs/outputs include XLR audio, XLR mic, HD/SD-SDI output, VF signal, return signal, SDI prompter output/genlock input/return input, and XLR intercom. An electronic color correction filter and four ND filters are built in.
A 16-bit A/D converter processes images with very high color precision. A Digital Extender function expands an image by a factor of two in the center of the sensor’s captured image without any decrease in sensitivity. Auto Lens Aberration Compensation 2 automatically reduces chromatic aberration by horizontal and vertical compensation when using lenses that support this function. Seven standard-gamma and four hyper-gamma tables are available for use in adjusting contrast. A Multi-Matrix function applies color adjustments over a user-specified color range, and Adaptive-Matrix enables color conversion even when shooting under excessively strong ambient light. Master White Gain allows step-less gain level adjustments. Two types of focus assist are available — Viewfinder Detail adds dedicated edge signals to the viewfinder, allowing easy recognition of a focusing point, and Focus Assist Indicator displays an indicator for adjustment at the bottom or elsewhere within the viewfinder frame.
The main chassis is made of durable magnesium-alloy casting. An integrated shoulder pad is adjustable back and forth without any tools. A protrusion on the front of the carrying handle allows added stability while shooting, and a non-slip structure on the handle’s lower surface provides better grasp. Assignable switches are available on the side and rear panels and assignable buttons on the handle.
