The HDC-1500R incorporates a newly developed 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*.

Such high image quality is supported by the camera’s convenient peripherals, which make installation and operation of an HDC-1000R system very smooth.

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


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.

For broadcasters wishing to migrate to 1080/50p transmission in the future, Sony offers the HDC-1500R as future proof 1080p ready camera.

The Sony HDCU-1500 Portable Camera Control Unit, with its range of built-in interfaces, is designed for use with the HDC-1500 and HDC-1000 series of cameras. Capable of both HD- and SD-SDI output, HD/SD return input, and with two expansion slots for additional interface cards, the HDCU-1500 also includes a built-in downconverter for analog composite output. An Ethernet interface–which allows control over a network–plus the unit’s compact 3RU size make it a superb choice for OB van applications.

The HDCU-1500 is a compact 3U half-rack unit, for a compact system solution.
The HDCU-1500 provides 3 SDI outputs, assignable as either HD or SD. Character display and other system information can be superimposed on one of the outputs for monitoring purposes. A downconverted VBS (composite analog) output is also available for picture monitoring.
