Uncompromising, Full-HD performance from compact camera

There is increasing demand for small "Box"-type or "Point-Of -View" cameras with the flexibility to shoot from almost anywhere while still delivering highest quality full-HD pictures for use standalone or in seamless integration with content from full-size cameras. The HDC-P1 delivers unprecedented picture quality thanks to its full use of the technologies from Sony's flagship HDC Series studio cameras. Three 2.2-million pixel 2/3"-inch type Power HAD FX CCDs and a 14bit A/D converter offer a sensitivity of F11 at 1080/50i or F10 at 1080/59.94i. A wide range of recording formats are supported, including 1080/50i, 59.94i and 720/50P, 59.94P, with 23.98PsF, 24PsF, 25PsF, and 29.97PsF capabilities available via optional software upgrades (due Summer 2010). 

It is also the first camera of its class to feature dual ND/CC filters, both of which are servo controlled, and its ultra-narrow, 86mm body makes it ideal for applications such as 3D. Other applications include a range of unmanned and point-of-view HD applications, such as stadiums, conference rooms and schools. It can also be used as a "companion" camera in automated broadcast studios.

  • Compromise-free HD Picture Quality

    Despite its diminutive dimensions, the HDC-P1 delivers outstanding quality, full-HD images. Three 2/3-inch type 2.2-mega pixel full HD "Power HAD FX" CCDs offer a sensitivity of F11 at 1080/50i and a high signal-to-noise ratio of 55 dB.

  • Shoot Anywhere

    Compact and lightweight, the HDC-P1 is ideal for capturing HD-quality images in locations and from angles where bulky production HD cameras cannot be installed. Weighing only 1.7 kg (3 lb 12 oz)enables easy installation in space-constrained and awkward areas such as on a crane head or helicopter. The supplied tally unit can be easily detached from the camera body, minimising the camera size to be fitted in, for example, a pan/tilt head or an underwater housing.

  • Future-proof flexible operation

    The HDC-P1 is designed to accommodate all current and proposed formats. In addition to 1080/50i and 720/50P operation, an optional software upgrade, due in Summer 2010, will enable 1080/25P capability.

  • Easily integrated with your existing systems

    The HDC-P1 camera is fully compatible with Sony's current master set-up units (MSU) and remote control panels (RCP). This flexibility makes it easy to integrate with everything from extensive multi-camera systems or simple point-to-point systems.

Key Features

  • 2/3" full HD "Power HAD FX" CCDs and 14-bit A/D converter

    The camera has a 14-bit A/D converter with a sensitivity of F11 at 1080/50i. It supports a range of recording formats including 1080/50i, 59.94i and 720/50P and 59.94P. 23.98PsF, 24PsF, 25PsF, and 29.97PsF capabilities will be available via optional software due in Summer 2010.

  • Compact and Lightweight Design

    The HDC-P1 weighs only 1.7 kg (3 lb 12 oz) and its dimensions are a compact 86mm(W) x 130mm(H) x 189mm(D), allowing easy installation in space-constrained and awkward areas such as on a crane head or helicopter.

  • Two remote control optical filters

    The HDC-P1 is the first camera of its type with two optical filters - Neutral Density (ND) and Colour Correction (CC) - to provide more flexibility under changing lighting conditions and easier picture matching with full size system cameras. Both filters are servo driven so they can easily be controlled remotely.

  • Equivalent picture quality and control system as standard Sony HD camera system

    The HDC-P1 camera not only delivers comparable picture quality to a full-size Sony system camera, it is also fully compatible with Sony's current Master Set-up Units (MSU) and Remote Control Panels (RCP) using 700 Protocol - the same control system as HDC Series Cameras. This flexibility allows for comprehensive camera systems or simple point-to-point systems.
