HD Multi Purpose Camera (without lens)
Weighing just 1.3 kg (camera head only), this mul-
tipurpose camera delivers crisp, clear pictures with
true 1080-line resolution in interlaced or progressive
modes. Its compact dimensions and auto-focus lens
make it an ideal choice for a range of point of view
applications, including mounting on robotic platforms
or in a helicopter.
It's also the perfect low-cost solution for providing
wide-area coverage at large-scale live events where a
large number of cameras are required but resources
are limited. Linked over a distance of up to 1000m via
a single optical connection, the HFU-X310 signal inter-
face unit adds a comprehensive range of output
format options including HD-SDI, computer XGA and,
soon to be available, i.LINK (HDV).
Incorporating Sony's innovative Advanced Frame Ac-
cumulation (AFA) technology, the HDC-X310 can out-
put progressive HD signals (25PsF/29.97PsF), 2-3 pull
down-converted signal from 23.976PsF (59.94i) in ad-
dition to interlaced HD signals (50i/59.94i). Interlace
and progressive modes can be easily selected from
the camera set-up menu. o 50i output mode: 50i or
25PsF selectable o 59.94i output mode: 59.94i/
29.97PsF/23.976PsF (with built-in 2-3 pull-down func-
Flexible Image Controls
The HDC-X310 provides highly advanced image-con-
trol functions such as a TruEye feature, skin-tone de-
tail, and colour temperature controls. These functions
- previously available only on high-end studio
cameras or camcorders - allow creative images to be
produced with high clarity.
Two types of trigger modes are available with the
HDC-X310, allowing synchronized operation with ex-
ternal equipment. The flash trigger input mode allows
the camera to capture a high-quality still image when
synchronized with an external flash - a function suited
for photo-booth or document-stand applications.
Another trigger mode is the 23.976PsF frame lock
mode. When the HDC-X310 is set to 23.976PsF pro-
gressive mode, the camera outputs a 2-3 pull-down
trigger signal for frame locking to other HDC-X300
Remote Control Capability
The HDC-X310 is compatible with the RM-B150/B750
Remote Control Unit, RCP-700 Series Remote Control
Panel and MSU-900/950 Master Set-up Unit. These
remote controllers cover the complete range of con-
trol parameters that the HDC-X310K provides, from
basic camera control to sophisticated operations.
Optical ND Filter and Electronic CC Function
Optimum light and colour control is easily achieved
using the built-in optical Neutral Density (ND) filter
wheel and electronic Colour Correction (CC) function.
The HDC-X310 uses electronic colour correction to
eliminate the need for optical colour correction filters.
This allows all filters on the filter wheel to be ND
types, providing the operator with greater flexibility in
depth of field and exposure control.
HKC-SV1 Servo Filter Unit (Option)
The HKC-SV1 is a servo unit that allows the optical
ND filters of the HDC-X310 to be controlled remotely
from the RM-B750/B150 Remote Control Unit,
RCP-700 Series Remote Control Panel, or MSU-900/
950 Master Set-up Unit.
