Opening a New World of HD Production
Sony’s standard-definition (SD) and high-definition (HD) production cameras have been widely accepted by a great number of video professionals around the world, due to their excellent picture performance and system versatility. Also the Sony HXC-100 HD/SD System Camera equipped with digital triax technology, which allows systems to be configured with conventional triax. The HXC-100 camera supports versatile applications of HD with a high-quality output. That uses 14-bit A/D conversion circuit as well as the superb 2/3-inch Power HAD FX CCDs to bring out high picture quality.
Together with the highly compact 1.5 RU HXCU-100 Camera Control Unit and a remote control panel from Sony, the HXC-100 camera offers a fairly simple system. With a variety of beneficial functions packed into the camera, such as its Focus Assist function, the HXC-100 provides genuine user-friendliness.

Digital triax operation
The HXC-100 camera utilizes a very high-quality digital triax system that expands its operability in field applications, as well as for studio production. The HXC-100’s digital triax system can be integrated into conventional triax-based infrastructures, enabling an easy upgrade from existing systems.
This newly developed digital triax transmission system offers long cable runs of up to 1200 m (3937 feet)* via a ø14.5 mm 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.

Simple System Configuration
The HXC-100 camera offers flexible configuration with the highly compact 1.5 RU-size HXCU-100 Camera Control Unit, creating a standardized 19-inch rack system that is ideal for space-limited production areas. Combined with the HXCU-100, the HXC-100 can be configured as a simple studio system.
Equipped with the latest Sony-developed digital transmission technology, the HXCU-100 can transmit high-resolution pictures between the camera and CCU, regardless of the cable length. The HXCU-100 features flexible interfaces of selectable inputs/outputs between HD-SDI and SD-SDI.
What’s more, the optional HKCU-FP1 CCU Front Control Panel is also available. When the front panel of the HXCU-100 is replaced with the HKCU-FP1, a simple remote control system can be configured. Many functions of the camera can be controlled by the control knobs and switches on the HKCU-FP1.
