Heralding a New Era of HD Production

Pursuing the ultimate HD system for today and for tomorrow, Sony sets another milestone in the history of multi-format HD camera systems - the HDC-1550R - offering a broader choice of interlace and progressive formats, much greater picture quality, and enhanced operational flexibility.

The HDC-1550R 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 popular interlace and progressive scan formats including 1080/50, 1080/24P as well as the highest-quality 720/50P images.

The HDC-1550R includes a triax cable interface, which permits simple integration with existing studio or outside broadcast infrastructure. At the base station, a triax-to-fibre convertor, the HDFX-100, allows connection to a standard HDCU-1000 or HDCU-1500 fibre optic base station.

  • New CCD and DSP provides even greater picture performance

    The use of a new, state-of-the-art CCD sensor ensures high quality images even at low light level. The high sensitivity of F11 at 2000 lux, together with a signal to noise ratio of 56 dB combine to deliver unprecedented picture quality.

  • Multi-format operation

    The HDC-1550R can operate in a wide variety of capturing modes, including 1080 50/60i, 1080 24/25/30P. Furthermore, the CCD can capture 1080 50/60P images, which can be down sampled to deliver the highest quality 720 50/60P pictures.

  • Ergonomic Design

    The design of the HDC-1550R is based on over two decades of Sony experience in manufacturing broadcast video cameras and camcorders, and provides a high level of operability. All control switches and connectors are in the most logical places and are positioned for optimum functionality and ease of use. The HDC-1550R's low centre of gravity design allows the operator to carry the camera comfortably on the shoulder. In addition, the shoulder pad of the HDC-1550R can be adjusted either forwards or backwards without using a screwdriver, so the camera can easily be moved to a well-balanced position.

  • Sophisticated large lens adaptor design with one-touch, cable-free docking

    The HDLA-1500 large lens adaptor includes a unique mechanism which allows the HDC-1550R to be quickly and easily attached and detached without removing the large lens. No additional cable connections are necessary between the camera and adaptor, thanks to a novel "hot shoe" system.


  • Power HAD FX CCD for high sensitivity

    The HDC-1550R is equipped with a newly developed three 2/3-inch type 2.2-megapixel HD CCD. Based on Sony HAD sensor technology and the latest on-chip lens structure, this new CCD offers a high sensitivity of F11 at 2000 lx. In addition to this performance, a wide variety of capturing modes including 1080/50i, 60i, 1080/24P, and 1080/25P, 30P are available. What's more, this CCD can capture top-quality 1080/50P, 60P images - a capability that also offers highest-quality 720/50P, 60P image acquisition for today's operations.

  • 14-bit A/D (Analogue to Digital) conversion

    The HDC-1550R utilises a 14-bit A/D convertor, which enables images captured by the high-performance CCDs to be processed with maximum precision. In particular, this high-resolution A/D conversion allows the gradation in mid-to-dark-tone areas of the picture to be faithfully reproduced. Thanks to this 14-bit A/D convertor, pre-knee signal compression at highlight areas can be eliminated and the camera can clearly reproduce a high-luminance subject at a 600% dynamic range.

  • Improved S/N ratio

    At the heart of the outstanding picture performance of the HDC-1550R camera is a newly developed 2/3-inch type 2.2-megapixel full HD progressive CCD. Based on Sony's HAD sensor technology and the latest on-chip lens structure, this CCD offers a high sensitivity of F10 or F11 at 2,000 lx and an excellent signal-to-noise ratio of 56 dB (typical).

    Together with a unique "Noise Suppression" function, which reduces the high-frequency noise elements in video signals by using Sony's advanced digital signal processing technology, a 64dB S/N ratio can be achieved.

  • Newly added Focus Assist Functions

    For easier focusing through the viewfinder, two types of focus assist functions are newly incorporated to the HDC-1550R: Viewfinder Detail and Focus Assist Indicator. To intuitively recognize a focusing point, users of the camera can add dedicated image-enhancing edge signals directly to the viewfinder as "Viewfinder Detail". The "Focus Assist Indicator" is a helpful tool for manual focus adjustments, especially when shooting wide-angle views. An indicator is displayed at the bottom or other positions of the viewfinder frame, enabling users to make more accurate and fine focus adjustments.

  • Low profile chassis design

    The HDC-1550R portable camera is designed to be very compact and lightweight for a high level of mobility in the field. The HDC-1550R camera weighs approximately 4.9 kg ensuring comfortable operation either on the shoulder or on a tripod.
