Sony HDC-1500R HD Color Camera w/ 3G Upgrade- USED


USED Sony HDR-1500R HD Camera


The Sony HDC-1500R  incorporates a  CCD imager and DSP LSI – two key devices that allow it to achieve ultimate picture performance in a variety of scanning modes. The CCD used in this camera can accommodate all existing interlace and progressive scan formats ranging from 1080/50i and 1080/59.94i. It can also capture stunning 1080/59.94P* and 1080/50P* images – as well as delivering the highest-possible quality 720/50P image creation*.

The HDLA-1500/HDLA-1505 Large Lens Adaptor incorporates a totally unique interlocking mechanism, which allows a large lens to be attached/detached from the portable camera in just a matter of seconds – relieving operators from lengthy mechanical adjustments.

* 1080/59.94P and 1080/50P signals can be output only from the HDC-1500R in a stand-alone configuration.

1080/50p ready and 3G Transmission upgradable

The HDC-1500R can capture 1080/50p and output from camera head as dual link. Moreover, using a 3G migration kit, the HDC-1500R will be able to upgrade to a 3G transmission system.

New CCD and DSP provides even greater picture performance

The use of a new, state-of-the-art CCD sensor ensures high quality images even at low light level. The high sensitivity of F11 at 2000 lux, together with a signal to noise ratio of 56 dB combine to deliver unprecedented picture quality.

Multi-format operation

The HDC-1500R can operate in a wide variety of capturing modes, including 1080 50/60i, 1080 24/25/30P. Furthermore, the CCD can capture 1080 50/60P images, which can be down sampled to deliver the highest quality 720 50/60P pictures.

Ergonomic Design

The design of the HDC-1500R is based on over two decades of Sony experience in manufacturing broadcast video cameras and camcorders, and provides a high level of operability. All control switches and connectors are in the most logical places and are positioned for optimum functionality and ease of use. The HDC-1500R’s low centre of gravity design allows the operator to carry the camera comfortably on the shoulder. In addition, the shoulder pad of the HDC-1500R can be adjusted either forwards or backwards without using a screwdriver, so the camera can easily be moved to a well-balanced position.

Sophisticated large lens adaptor design with one-touch, cable-free docking

The HDLA-1500 large lens adaptor includes a unique mechanism which allows the HDC-1500R to be quickly and easily attached and detached without removing the large lens. No additional cable connections are necessary between the camera and adaptor, thanks to a novel “hot shoe” system.

Flexible selectable transmission system both digital fiber optic or analogue triax transmission

The HDC-1500R provides a fully digital transmission link to the base station. Using SMPTE standard hybrid fibre/copper cable, this allows completely transparent transmission of full bandwidth video and audio signals over cable length of up to 3000 metres. This ensures optimum quality HD signals can be delivered into any production environment. Moreover using the HDTX-100/HDFX-100 adaptor, the HDC-1500 can be used as triax transmission system

HKC-HB15 3G Upgrade

The HKC-HB15 Fibre Transmission Unit is an upgrade for the HDC1500/1500R camera that doubles the signal transmission bitrate to 3G (3 Gigabit/second). Cameras with this enhanced capability are able to work as a complete 1080/50p or 60p production system.
Upgraded cameras and CCUs will be ready for use in future 3G and 3D video environments.
Support 1080/50P, 60P signal output
3G High Bit Rate transmission between CAM-CCU to support 1080/50P, 60P signal output from CCU?with SMPTE425M Single Link option capability
Support RGB 444 signal ouput.
3G High Bit Rate transmission between CAM-CCU to support RGB 444 signal output from CCU (This function will be added this autumn.)
Trunk Line Operation
Trunk Line Operation provides Dual Camera System ?2CAM-2CCU? or Sub-Camera system ?2CAM- 1 CCU? operation, which can offer less cabling operation
Support HD SDI Prompter signal transmission
