SONY HDC-1700 Multi format HD portable System camera

Portable system camera with 16-bit A/D conversion and fibre transmission
The HDC-1700 dual-format HD system camera is equipped with sophisticated three-chip 2/3-inch Power HAD FX CCD image sensors and the latest 16-bit A/D converter to provide superior picture quality. The HDC-1700 supports HD and SD signal formats including 1080/50i, 1080/59.94i, 720/50p, and 720/59.94p. For flexibility, there are many HDC Series accessories that can be utilised, such as optional HD viewfinders and large lens adaptors. The HDC-1700 is a truly cost-effective camera that also delivers genuine user-friendliness.

  • Superb image quality with cutting-edge technologies

    With three high resolution 2/3-inch Power HAD FX CCD image sensors, and the advanced digital signal processor (DSP) LSI provides superior S/N levels as well as better functionality. Also, a 16-bit A/D converter produces optimal visual imagery and enhanced black reproduction.

  • Adaptive Matrix function

    With the Adaptive Matrix function, images with well-balanced details can be reproduced even in strong monochromatic light conditions, such as at stage events.

  • Auto Lens Chromatic Aberration Compensation (ALAC-2)

    Alongside the advanced DSP LSI, the ALAC-2 function automatically compensates for lens chromatic aberration*. ALAC-2 works in both horizontal and vertical directions.
    *Lenses need to be corresponded to ALAC feature.

  • Optional accessories expand usage

    There are many optional accessories for the HDC-1700, including the HKC-DF20 Dual Optical Filter Unit and HZC-PSF20 Signal Format Software (1080/23.98p, 24p, 25p, 29.97p). These options support a range of different shooting scenes and requirements.

  • Spirit level

    With the MEMS-Acceleration Sensor, the horizontal level can be displayed on the viewfinder screen, which helps particularly with wide-angle shooting.

  • HDLA large lens adaptor maximises operability

    HDLA-1500, HDLA-1505, and HDLA-1507 adaptors maximise the operability of the HDC-1700. These optional adapters provide flexibility when applications require a large studio lens, and camera operators want to maintain hard camera control. They facilitate simple connectivity without time-consuming wiring and adjustments.

  • 1.5 Gbps Optical fibre transmission

    The HDC-1700 is capable of long-distance signal transmission up to 2,000 metres with the HDCU-1700 Camera Control Unit (CCU).*
    * The HDC-1700 is only used in combination with the HDCU-1700.

  • HDCU-1700 Camera Control Unit (CCU)

    The HDC-1700 can be configured with the HDCU-1700 dedicated Camera Control Unit (CCU), which is a 19-inch half-rack size portable CCU for fibre cable connection. The HDCU-1700 CCU can control camera menu settings and display fibre condition on the front panel. It has an expansion slot for the four HD/SD SDI outputs board; and the option board slot is used for HKCU option cards to expand the CCUs output capability to include VBS out, PIX out, WFM out, and component video out.
