The Sony XDCAM HD system is a highly versatile production tool that offers flexible recording functions including a choice of video frame rates, interlace or progressive modes, recording data rates, and both HD and SD formats. The PDW-F355 XDCAM HD Camcorder features MPEG HD and DVCAM switchable recording with three 1/2-inch HD CCDs. It is capable of recording 1080 video lines of multiple frame rates at a high bit rate of up to 35 Mbps. It also provides four channels of high-quality uncompressed audio. This allows an SD to HD migration path to a complete HD-based environment. Down-conversion output to SD is a standard feature in this camera. Instant random access, replay of clips, IT network capability and the proxy data advantage provide for an exceptional workflow. The PDW-F355L provides excellent picture quality, adapting Power HAD HD CCDs (1440x1080). It offers HD recording in 1080/59.94i, 50i, 29.97P, 25P and native 23.98P and the operator can also select the desired bit rate to record it, either 35 Mbps, 25 Mbps and 18 Mbps depending on the desired picture quality and recording length. Being a dual format camcorder, it can also record in DVCAM mode at 25 Mbps. In addition to these impressive capabilities, PDW-F355L also provides numerous innovative features like Quick & Slow Motion, commonly known as overcranking and undercranking, Slow Shutter, Clear Scan, Interval Recording and Auto Focus Function. It also supports i.LINK interface for File Access Mode and DV stream output (including down-conversion from HD material).
