Sony HDC-3500 System Camera
The HDC-3500 system camera brings new levels of image quality, portability and creative flexibility to live production environments. Enjoy premium 4K/HD/HDR picture quality – and anticipate tomorrow’s production needs while maintaining full compatibility with today’s workflows and system hardware.
Imaging power unleashed
Capture premium pictures with the world’s first 2/3-inch 4K CMOS sensor with global shutter technology that eliminates the ‘jello effect’ and banding noise. This allows the HDC-3500 to capture pristine images with 4K high resolution (2000TVL), exceptionally low noise (-62dB), impressive sensitivity (F10 at 1080/59.94p or F11 at 1080/50p) and high dynamic range, while achieving the ITU-R BT.2020 broadcast standard wide colour space. It’s teamed with a specially developed LSI Digital Signal Processor that fully realises the extraordinary imaging power of this new sensor.
More format flexibility (4K/HD)
The HDC-3500 can output 4K signals via the CCU’s 12G-SDI and Quad 3G-SDI interfaces and 3G-SDI signals in a range of formats right up to 1080/50p. So you can benefit from maximum production convenience – and your viewers can enjoy premium picture quality.
