HDW-750
1/2-Inch Platform Advances to Greater Heights
2
Since introducing its first models, Sony has continually enhanced the
BETACAM™ Series of products, each offering the highest possible performance
and always preserving a consistent half-inch platform. The excellence of the
analog BETACAM™/BETACAM SP™ formats introduced an entirely new set of
opportunities to ENG and EFP, while the use of digital processing in the Digital
BETACAM™, BETACAM SX™, and MPEG IMX™ formats brought standardized
4:2:2 digital recording into both news gathering and field production. Today,
each format is in service in a multiplicity of programming applications, offering
the pinnacle of reliability and performance that only BETACAM technology
provides.
In 1997 Sony revolutionized HDTV program origination with the introduction of
the 1/2-inch camcorder the HDW-700. This was soon followed by the
HDW-700A camcorder, which operates according to the updated 1080/60i
production standard. This camcorder, in association with its editing VTR the
HDW-500, extended the BETACAM format tradition into the realm of mobile HD
program creation. In 1999 the HDCAM™ format was dramatically broadened to
include the new multi-frame rate camcorder the HDW-F900 and its companion
VTR the HDW-F500 – both responding to the breakthrough new ITU 709 global
standard for international HD program origination. The pivotal inclusion of the
new 24-frame progressive format in this standard constituted a central design
imperative for the HDW-F900/F500 system and introduced to the world the first
digital 24-frame motion picture capture system.
With the HDW-F900/HDW-F500 Series squarely addressing the needs of
movie-making and high-end prime time television program and commercial
production, Sony returned to the central agenda of a mainstream HD capture
system in support of the emerging broader DTV broadcasting agendas around the
world. This is based upon the SMPTE 274M HD production standard.
A second generation 1080/60i camcorder and VTR system has been developed
which is intended as a more cost-effective and feature enhanced system
specifically designed to streamline the migration to DTV. A central design strategy
was to more firmly incorporate this new HDCAM system into the totality of
Sony’s 1/2-inch acquisition and editing platform. Accordingly, the new
HDW-2000 Series VTR offers full HDCAM record and editing facilities, but also
includes both the all-important legacy playback of all standard definition
BETACAM formats and internal up-conversion of that playback to the 1920 x
1080 digital sampling format for playout in the HDTV format. The legacy
playback includes analog BETACAM/SP, Digital BETACAM, BETACAM SX and the
MPEG IMX 1/2-inch tape recordings. Thus a crucial bridge between SDTV
libraries (and ongoing SDTV digital origination) has been realized. Recognizing
the inevitable two-way flow of program material between SDTV and HDTV, the
new HDW-2000 Series VTR also includes digital down-conversion as a standard
feature, thus allowing the creation of “Super-sampled” digital 4:2:2 SDTV
program material.
The HDW-2000 Series also provides the same reliability and operability inherited
from the long-established BETACAM Series offering a powerful workhorse solution
to HDTV environments as well as to current SDTV systems.
The HDW-750 camcorder is extremely compact and lightweight while
maintaining the robust and reliable construction for which BETACAM technology
is world-renowned.
Some innovative new functions are added to meet various requirements in the
field. The latest addition to the HDCAM Series, with its high quality, superb
operability and added reliability is an economically well-balanced solution for
next generation ENG and EFP programming.
*As for HDCAM tape cassettes, HDW-2000 Series is applicable for 50i and 59.94i operation only.

Technical Innovations –
Enhance Shooting
in the Field
The compact and stylish body of the HDW-750
contains many technological innovations. They
are brought together to enable the creation of
some of the most versatile and outstanding
in-the-field visual experiences of the new century,
while ensuring durability and ease of use for the
challenging conditions of field shooting.
HAD Sensor Technology
The well-established innovations of CCD technology already
incorporated in Sony’s HDC-900 Series cameras and
HDW-F900 camcorders are also used in the new HDW-750
camcorder. Inheriting Sony HAD sensor technology and
on-chip lens structure of the latest Power HAD™ sensors,
this imaging device is based on the 1920 x 1080 CIF
(Common Image Format). With its light collecting capability
dramatically improved, this 2/3-format, 2.2 million-pixel FIT
CCD, boosts the sensitivity to an industry-leading f10 at
2,000 Lux, thus enabling image capture in extremely low
light conditions. The
signal-to-noise ratio is
54 dB and vertical
smear is less
than -135 dB*.
*Typical numbers.

10-bit A/D and Advanced Digital Signal
Processor
The new HDW-750 uses the proven 10-bit A/D converter and
Advanced Digital Signal Processing (ADSP) presently used in
the HDW-700A. They ensure low-power operation and superb
picture quality. A 600 % wide dynamic range and excellent
tonal reproduction, combine with creative manipulation of
picture parameters for “in-camera effects”, which were
pioneered by Sony and are now widely accepted among
Digital Cinematographers. The well known Memory Stick™
setup system allows five alternative camera setups to be
stored and recalled whenever they are required. These include
all factors relating to colorimetry and tonal reproduction
adjustment, so that at any time (such as a scene re-shoot)
these settings can always be readily accessible.
To help maximize the camera image-making capabilities,
special attention has been paid to the careful design of the
camera menus so that access to certain image parameters is
user-friendly and intuitive.
New Ergonomics
Sony has been continually improving camcorder body design
over many years, always trying to make them more user
friendly and practical as well as stylish and appealing.
Another important factor, especially for the challenging
conditions of ENG shooting, is the attention to physical
robustness as well as maintaining a compact and lightweight
camcorder. To meet these conditions, the body design of the
HDW-750 is totally new, but all switches, meters and
indicators are in the most logical places and are positioned
for optimum functionality and ease of use. This has been
achieved through meticulous consideration of the human
physiology and the application of fundamental ergonomic
principles. The operation of every single switch and button
reflects our thorough understanding of the operator’s needs
and working practices. Sony has been making professional
cameras for over 20 years, and during that time we have
listened very carefully to suggestions that users have
contributed to ongoing refinements to camera body design.
The superb weight distribution and balance combined with a
low optical axis make the HDW-750 particularly suitable for
hand-held shots. It also sits comfortably on the shoulder and
can be easily carried with minimum fatigue. Even with the
viewfinder, battery, cassette, microphone, the total weight is
only 5.4 kilograms (less than 12 pounds). This astonishingly
compact and lightweight camera opens new possibilities for
handheld creative camera work while delivering
uncompromising picture quality. This new, compact and
stylish body of the HDW-750 houses some very highly
innovative technologies.
5
Dual Optical Filter Wheels
For the optical picture treatment, two independent filter
wheels, one is for Neutral Density (ND) and the other
is Color Correction (CC), are installed. An optional
servo filter drive unit, the BKDW-701, can also be
fitted allowing filter settings to be changed with the
RM-B150 Remote Control Unit.
Two Assignable Buttons
You can assign two required functions to these switches,
functions which are frequently used in the field, for
instance to be operated with a single action of touching
a button, such as Viewfinder Return, Record etc.
Dual Earphone Output
The HDW-750 is equipped with two earphone outputs,
one is output from the front side of the camcorder
body, and the other is from rear side. These two
outputs can be used simultaneously.

Technical Innovations – Enhance Shooting in the Field
Turbo Gain
The inherent sensitivity of the HDW-750 is high
enough to capture images under various low light
conditions, but in some situations it is necessary to
image in unusually low light conditions. The Turbo
Gain function immediately boosts up the gain level to
an incredible +42 dB at the touch of the button.
Thanks to this function, it is possible to capture critical
scenes down to around 0.15 lux of incident scene
illumination – somewhat exceeding the color sight
capability of the human eye.
Slot-in Wireless Microphone Receiver
(Built-in UHF Synthesizer Receiver Unit)
The optional WRR-855A Wireless Microphone
Receiver can be fitted directly to the HDW-750
camcorder using a slot-in mechanism that gives a cable
less interface between the camcorder and
the receiver. This system increases
mobility by maintaining
compact overall dimensions
even when the receiver is
attached to the camcorder.
*WRR-855A is an option.
LCD Status Panel and
Diagnostic System
All the main operational controls
and switches are located on the
left-hand side of the camcorder.
The LCD panel is on the same side,
and shows a wide range of status
and diagnostic displays such as
Tape Remaining, Battery Level,
Audio Levels, etc.
Stereo Audio Output
Tally Lamp
Newly added is the Bottom Tally light located in the
connector panel section of the rear of the camcorder body.
A stereo audio line output is available from the 5-pin
XLR connector on the rear of the camcorder. This
provides two analog audio output channels, which can
be selected to be either Channel-1/2 or Channel-3/4.
7
HD SDI Output for Field Monitoring
The HDW-750 directly provides an HD-SDI output
with four channels of embedded digital audio. You can
monitor all image capture in the field as high quality
HD images without any adapter.
Extended Clear Scan
The Extended Clear Scan function is particularly useful
when shooting scenes that contain computer or TV
screens as it minimizes the horizontal bars that can
appear. The ECS shutter speed is continuously variable.
Cassette Loading
The cassette loading is fast, simple and reliable. It takes
less than 5 seconds* for a cassette change. This ease of
change and long recording runs (40 minutes) offer new
levels of efficiency on location. The loading
mechanism is robust and designed to be dust and drip
proof. The vertical cassette loading helps to minimize
the risk of anything unwanted getting into the tape
mechanism. It also reduces the unwanted sound of a
fast rotating VTR drum to be captured via an on-board
microphone of the camcorder.
*Sony measurement.

Technical Innovations – Enhance Shooting in the Field
Electronic Shutter
The electronic shutter helps in capturing clear images
of fast-moving objects by selectively minimizing
motion blur.
Safe Area Markers
To allow for individual production requirements, the
HDW-750 provides safe-area markers for any aspect
ratio.
Intelligent Light Shoe
The HDW-750 HDCAM camcorder incorporates an
intelligent light shoe on the upper part of the carrying
handle. An Anton/Bauer standard two-pin socket
provides up to 50 watts of power from the attached
lithium-ion battery. The power can be switched on and
off manually or, when in Auto
mode, it can be set to be
synchronized with the operation
of the REC button. A switch on
the side of the camcorder
selects Manual or Auto mode.
*Anton/Bauer products may not be available in
some countries.
Lens Mount
The B-4 mount ring of the HDW-750 is strong enough
to support the heaviest of lenses. Same as other Sony
HD cameras/camcorders, conventional lenses for NTSC
and PAL systems can also be attached to these
camcorders.

Processing Innovations –
Enhance Creative Image
Capture
Menu-driven set up that enables creative image making in
the studio or field has been widely accepted. To help this
creative process, we have made it very easy to customize the
settings of many image parameters, and then digitally save
these settings. A simple and intuitive menu driven set up has
freed camera adjustments from being a purely engineering
exercise into a uniquely creative process. Up to five versions
of camera set up parameters can be stored, and can then be
transferred between camcorders via the Memory Stick storage
medium. This capability represents a major advance in
operational and creative versatility. The design of the menu
“page layout” for the HDW-750 is inherited from HDW-F900
multi-format HD camcorder*, –an easy and intuitive
camcorder set up system. “Page customization” is also
inherited to speed up the operation by allowing relevant
parameters to be grouped together to allow operators fast
access to the adjustment required for a given production.
Some of the most
important operational
adjustments are
described below.
*Set up data is not compatible between
HDW-F900 and HDW-750.
10
Colorimetry
The HDW-750 produces pictures with astonishing color
reproduction capability and offers controls that offer further
creative color manipulation.
Multi Matrix
Multi Matrix offers unique possibilities for creative control by
allowing selective color enhancement or alteration. It allows
a particular color to be selected and its hue changed over a
range of approximately 22.5 degrees. The level of saturation
can also be modified. This control allows very interesting “in
camera” effects – similar to the secondary color correction
normally reserved for post production special effects work –
and is performed at the full bit depth.
Multi Matrix ON
Color Balance
Consistent scene-by-scene color balance is widely accepted
as one of the key settings during production. There are a
number of ways of setting this when working with an
HDW-750 camcorder. By using Auto White (and Black)
balance, the HDW-750 gives an accurate overall color
balance. A Menu “Paint” functions allow color levels to be
adjusted on-set according to creative needs. For this
operation, the RM-B150 paint controller can be connected
and paint parameters can be remotely adjusted.
3,200K
Auto Tracing White Balance
This function allows automatic tracing of white balance in
situations where overall color temperature of the lighting
fluctuates. This is particularly useful for continuous shooting
that requires a subject to be followed from outside to inside
(i.e. from daylight to tungsten lighting) with no opportunity
to re-set the color balance of the camera.
5,500K
Color Temperature Control
Digital Color Temperature Control makes it possible to dial in
the required color temperature of the camera. In addition,
this function can be used creatively. The overall color
balance of the picture can be changed to make it ‘warmer’
or ‘colder’. On the other hand, for Optical Color
Temperature treatment, four types of color filters are
equipped as standard. The BKDW-701 optional Servo Filter
Drive Unit can also be attached to the camera, allowing CC
filters to be remotely controlled.
8,024K
11
Contrast Range
The HDW-750 can handle a very wide contrast range. A
number of useful features are readily available to aid the
operator to more precisely reproduce any given scene.
Creative possibilities are offered by modifying “gamma
settings”, offering a great advantage to achieving a desired
‘look’.
Selectable Gamma Curves
A vital factor in achieving an appropriate contrast range is
the gamma curve. Gamma determines the transfer
characteristic of a normal exposed scene. For Sony’s digital
camcorders, gamma curves are readily adjustable on
location. The overall (Master) gamma curve of the HDW-750
offers a very natural overall tonal reproduction because of
the 10-bit A/D converter and ADSP (Advanced Digital Signal
Processing) providing multiple gamma points. While the
master gamma can be changed between two calculating
patterns, several fixed master gamma curves are available
per each pattern. These are all accessible and
interchangeable via the set-up menus.
Normal
Gamma Calculating Pattern A
No.1: SMPTE 240M (Initial Gain 4.0)
No.2: ITU-R.BT709 (Initial Gain 4.5)
No.3: BBC Gamma setting (Initial gain 5.0)
Gamma Calculating Pattern B
No.1: Sensitivity is equivalent to 50 ISO
No.2: Sensitivity is equivalent to 100 ISO
No.3: Sensitivity is equivalent to 200 ISO
Red Channel Enhancement
RGB Gamma Balance
By changing the RGB gamma balance it is possible to
change the color balance of the mid-tones without affecting
black or white balance.
Variable Black Gamma Range
Variable Black Gamma Range function allows fine
adjustment of tonal reproduction in the shadow area. This
feature can help to bring out details from the dark parts of
the picture without affecting mid-tones while maintaining
absolute black level. The variable range is LOW, MID and
HIGH.
Normal
Black Stretch
When Variable Black Gamma Range function is performed, it
can be limited to picture luminance without affecting any
other factors of the video signal. It is particularly helpful for
dark scenes when the black has to stay black, but there is a
requirement to pull out more detail.

Processing Innovations – Enhance Creative Image Capture
Highlight Handling
Sony Advanced TruEye™ processing allows much improved
highlight handling, with faithful color reproduction.
Adaptive Highlight Control (Auto Knee mode)
The Sony ADSP system intelligently monitors the brightness
of all areas of the picture and automatically adapts the knee
point/slope for optimum reproduction within given areas of
the scene area. A typical example is the ability to shoot an
interior scene which includes a sunlit exterior seen through a
window.
Normal
Knee Saturation Function ON
(Adaptive Highlight Control)
Knee Saturation Function
The Sony TruEye processor is one of the most innovative
features of Sony’s ADSP development, makes it possible to
reproduce very natural colors in a high contrast scene
content. Without TruEye, when only knee correction is
applied to the RGB channels, a color distortion in highlight
areas will occur. A typical example is human skin tones
which tend to take on a yellow tone in highlights. Knee
Saturation processing automatically retains accurate color in
highlight areas and maintains color saturation in picture
areas compensated by the TruEye processor.

Processing Innovations – Enhance Creative Image Capture
Definition – Picture Sharpness
The new HDW camcorder produces rich pictures having
natural sharpness with fine details. Each RGB 2.2-million
pixel CCD in combination with wideband digital recording
on the 1080-line HD format ensures faithful image capture.
The HDW-750 facilitates very precise control of picture
texture and image enhancement.
Three-channel Skin Tone Detail Correction
Skin Tone Detail Correction allows user control of the detail
level of objects with specific color tones. The HDW-750
allows detail correction to be set independently for each of
the three separate Skin Tone Detail channels. Control is not
limited to skin tone, detail level can be set for any color.
Detail within the chosen colors may be increased or
decreased relative to the overall detail level set on the
camcorder.

This function provides natural detail enhancement in extreme
highlights by automatically limiting the amplitude of edge
signals in high contrast area. Detail aliasing in these areas is
virtually eliminated.

Accessories
A full range of operational accessories is available
to take full advantage of the versatility and
features of the HDW-750. Many accessories
developed for HDW-700A and HDW-F900 are
also applicable to this new HDCAM camcorder.
Picture Cache Board (Optional)
The optional HKDW-703 Picture Cache Board provides up to
seven seconds of loop recording using solid state memory.
Thus, when the REC start button is pressed, everything that
happened up to seven seconds before that moment can be
recorded to tape. Just imagine – if something unexpected
happens in front of your camera, the operator will still have
up to seven seconds of that event stored in RAM before
being able to hit the
record button. There is
a choice of recording
for 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
seconds or Max (7
seconds).
15
Operational Accessories
HD-SDI Camera Adapter (Optional)
The HDCA-901 Camera Adapter provides an additional two
HD-SDI outputs and also enables access to all four audio
tracks provided by the HDCAM format. Tracks 1 and 2 are
accessed via the AUDIO IN Ch-1/Ch-2 connectors on the
camcorder, and tracks 3 and 4 are accessed via the AUDIO
IN Ch-3/Ch-4 connectors on the HDCA-901. A 5-pin stereo
XLR connector and a headphones output
connector (stereo phone jack) are also
incorporated. The HDCA-901 can be used to select the
monitoring signal to be
either from Ch-1/Ch-2
connectors on the
HDW-750 or the
Ch-3/Ch-4 connectors
on the HDCA-901.
Shot Mark Recording
(Optional “Tele-File™” Memory Label)
HDW-750 allows automatic (or manual) recording of shot
data. While recording, data such as Date, Time, Shot ID,
Cassette Number and Shot Number can all be recorded on an
intelligent cassette labels containing a memory IC. This
Memory Label, called Tele-File, can store this information via
contact-less induction-coil transmission. Information in the
Tele-File can be read out through an optional reader unit for
stand-alone use. Shot Marks, are recorded each time the
operator presses the REC button or RETURN button, can be
read by the HDW-M2000/M2100 and HDW-F500
recorders/players, simply by inserting the cassette into the
cassette compartment.
The entire Shot Mark
information is detected
via an internal contactless transmission system,
and the corresponding
time code information
are listed automatically.
Down Converter Board (Optional)
The optional Down Converter Board HKDW-702 enables
Standard Definition output with four channel audio
embedded. SD-SDI or analog composite can be selected via
camcorder’s set up menu.

Color Viewfinder (Optional)
Two types of LCD-based color viewfinders are available, the
BVF-VC10W 1.5-type SD viewfinder and the 6-type
HDVF-C750W HD viewfinder.
*The BVF-VC10W requires an optional down converter board HKDW-702.
*The liquid crystal display fitted to this unit is manufactured with high precision technology, giving a
functioning pixel ratio of at least 99.99 %. Thus a very small proportion of pixels (at most 0.01 %) may be
“stuck”, constantly on or constantly off. In addition, over a long period of use, because of the physical
characteristics of the liquid crystal display, such “stuck” pixels may appear spontaneously. These problems
have been kept to absolute minimum, but are an unavoidable characteristic of liquid crystal technology.
