SONY HXCU-100

Full HD digital transmission up to 1200m* using standard triax cable

Equipped with the latest Sony-developed digital transmission technology, the HXCU-100 Camera Control Unit (CCU) can transmit high-resolution pictures between the camera and CCU, supporting most live production applications. The HXCU-100 features flexible interfaces of selectable inputs/outputs between HD-SDI and SD-SDI.

* The maximum cable length depends on the camera system configuration, lens type, and the number of cable connections.

Simple studio system with optional remote control

The optional HKCU-FP1 CCU Front Control Panel is also available. When the blank front panel of the HXCU-100 is replaced with the HKCU-FP1, a simple remote control system can be configured. Many functions of the HXC-100 camera can be controlled by the control knobs and switches on the HKCU-FP1.

Highly compact design

The 1.5 RU-size HXCU-100 CCU creates a standardized 19-inch rack system that is ideal for space-limited production areas, such as small control rooms and OB vans.

Features

Digital Full HD transmission up to 1200m* using standard triax cable
The HXCU-100 Camera Control Unit (CCU) offers long cable runs of up to 1200m (3937 feet) via a ø14.5 mm triax cable between the camera and the CCU.

* The maximum cable length depends on the camera system configuration, lens type, and the number of cable connections.

Optional remote control panel to control HXC-100
The HXCU-100 is compatible with the RCP-100 family of remote control panels. In any case, the optional HKCU-FP1 CCU Front Control Panel can also be used instead of the RCP. When the blank front panel of the HXCU-100 is replaced with the HKCU-FP1, a simple remote control system can be configured. Many functions of the HXC-100 camera can be controlled by the control knobs and switches on the HKCU-FP1.
Multi-system input/output interfaces
The HXCU-100 features flexible interfaces of selectable inputs/outputs between HD-SDI and SD-SDI. Other interfaces include VBS in/out, HD/SD component video output, as well as sync out and mic and prompter inputs.
Built-in down converter maximise flexibility
The HXCU-100 includes a built down-converter to SD providing simultaneous HD and SD outputs.
Cross-compatibility with HSC-300 and HXC-D70 cameras
The HXCU-100 also provides cross compatibility with HSC-300 and HXC-D70 (working with the CA-TX70 digital triax adapter) cameras.
Control with Sony Remote Control Panel
The HXCU-100 can be controlled with RCP-700/900 Series Remote Control panels connected with CCA-5 cable.
Optional HZC-RCP5 camera remote control software
This optional software application allows the user to control most of the parameters of up to five HXC-100/HXCU-100 camera chains from a PC (Windows 7 English version, Service pack 1).
