HDCAM has become the format of choice around the world for high quality HD programming across a wide range of production genres. Since launch over 43,000 HDCAM camcorders and VTRs have been purchased, and year-by-year Sony has continued to strengthen the line-up to offer new creative opportunities to the user.

The HDW-650P incorporates the latest developments in acquisition technology to capture breathtaking HD images. It can record pictures in 1080/50i and 59.94i interlace mode, as well as in 1080/25P where a natural 'film look' is required.

The camcorder features three newly developed 2/3-inch type Power HAD FX CCDs, a 14-bit A/D converter, and a state-of-the-art DSP LSI signal processing. This provides extremely wide tonal reproduction, as well as a high sensitivity of F12 at 50 Hz. A signal-to-noise ratio of up to 59dB is realised using a newly developed noise-suppression function.

The HDW-650P is equipped with many useful features as standard - including a 3.5-inch colour LCD screen located on the inside panel - all packaged into a well-balanced, reliable chassis.

Other benefits include two HD-SDI outputs, a down-converted SD output, selectable gamma characteristics (HyperGamma), interval recording, picture cache recording, and a slow shutter function - all provided as standard. Addition of an optional colour or monochrome viewfinder and an optional ECM series microphone completes the feature set.
