PMW-EX1 XDCAM EX Camcorder XDCAM HD Disc-based Production with Powerful New Features Sony introduced XDCAM HD in response to rapidly growing expectations for a wider choice of high definition (HD) video production tools. Since launch, XDCAM HD camcorders and decks have been widely adopted around the world by cinematographers, production facilities, broadcasters and video professionals. XDCAM HD not only offers breathtaking HD picture quality, but also enables advanced non-linear recording onto “Professional Disc” - an optical disc media based on blue-violet laser technology. Users have been quick to benefit from the many great features of disc-based operation, including instant random access to recorded material and network capability. Sony has evolved its XDCAM HD family by introducing two new camcorders, the PDW-F355 and PDW-F335, and a new deck, the PDW-F75, to provide much greater operational flexibility. One of the most significant benefits of the new line-up is a longer recording time of approximately 4.5 hours of 1080i HD video. This is achieved by the use of a newly developed Dual Layer Professional Disc, the PFD50DLA, which has a large storage capacity of 50GB*. The full line-up now comprises two 1/2-inch three-CCD camcorders, the new PDW-F355 and PDW-F335, plus two decks, the new PDW-F75 and the PDW-F30. The addition of the new PDW-U1 drive unit, which offers compact, mobile, and low cost operation puts the power of XDCAM onto the desktop. It serves as an external PC drive, connected via the Hi-Speed USB (USB 2.0) interface, and allows users to instantly view material recorded to Professional Disc media on their PC. It can also be used as a source feeder to non-linear editing systems. With greater system flexibility and powerful new features, the enhanced line-up of Sony XDCAM HD products further expands the world of HD for all types of production. * The PFD50DLA disc cannot be used in the PDW-F30 deck. 3 XDCAM HD Versatile, Disc-based HD Recording System XDCAM HD is a highly versatile production system from Sony that offers flexible recording features including a choice of video frame rates, interlace and progressive scanning, selectable recording data rates and both SD* and HD operation. * Selectable between 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios. High Quality Uncompressed Audio Recording In addition to HD video recording, high quality audio is an equally significant feature of the XDCAM HD system. XDCAM HD products can record four-channel, 16-bit, 48-kHz uncompressed audio. HD/SD Switchable Recording and Up/Down Conversion HD 1080 Recording using “MPEG HD” Compression XDCAM HD products record 1080-line high definition video using “MPEG HD” encoding that uses industry-standard MPEG-2 compression. The use of MPEG-2 compression ensures compatibility with many other devices such as non-linear editing systems and servers. XDCAM HD camcorders and the PDW-F75 deck* can record in DVCAM™ format in NTSC/PAL and in 16:9 and 4:3, as well as in the MPEG HD format. In addition, both the XDCAM HD camcorders and decks incorporate a down-converter that allows material recorded in HD to be converted to SD and output via the SD video output connectors (including SD composite and i.LINK™** ). This enables users to view the material on an SD monitor or transfer it to other SD-based equipment such as a VTR or editor. The PDW-F75 and PDW-F30 decks also feature an up-converter, which allows material recorded in the DVCAM format to be converted to HD and output via the HD-SDI*** or HD analogue component connectors. These features allow users to easily integrate XDCAM HD into their current infrastructure and to migrate to HD at their own pace. Selectable Bit Rates Choosing the highest bit rate of 35 Mb/s results in the highest-quality pictures and a recording time of up to 150 minutes*. Choosing the 18 Mb/s bit rate provides a longer recording time of up to 265 minutes*. *Approximate time in two-channel audio recording mode with the PFD50DLA (50 GB disc). Wide Choice of Video Format – Interlace and Progressive Including Native “23.98P”Mode XDCAM HD products offer a choice of video formats for both frame rates and scanning mode. These include 1080/59.94i, 50i, 29.97P, 25P, and native 23.98P. * The PDW-F75 deck provides DVCAM recording via the SD-SDI or SD analogue composite interfaces, which require the optional PDBK-104. ** i.LINK is a Sony trademark used only to designate that a product is equipped with an IEEE1394 connector. Not all products with an i.LINK connector are guaranteed to communicate with each other. Please refer to the documentation that comes with any device having an i.LINK connector for information on compatibility, operating conditions, and proper connection. *** HD-SDI output is only available on the PDW-F75.

This brings significant benefits including instant random access and IT connectivity. Powerful Non-linear Recording onto Professional Disc Media XDCAM HD products use a large capacity non-linear optical disc for recording. This Professional Disc media has been developed by Sony specifically for professional recording applications. The PFD50DLA and PFD23A are 12 cm, reusable optical discs. The PFD50DLA is a Dual Layer Disc with a capacity of 50GB and the PFD23A is a Single Layer, 23 GB disc. The large capacity of the PFD50DLA makes it possible to record up to 265 minutes* of HD material. Professional Disc media is highly reliable and durable because it experiences no mechanical contact during recording or playback, and is packaged into an extremely durable and dust-resistant disc cartridge. The non-contact recording and playback also makes it an ideal media for long-term storage of AV assets. State of the Art Dual Layer Recording The development of the new Dual Layer Professional Disc, PFD50DLA brings a much longer recording time to the XDCAM HD system. This large capacity disc and compatible disc drive, is based on four new technologies: 1 > Increased recording density and the Dual Layer Disc structure offer more than twice the capacity of the Single Layer Disc. 2 > The new substrate and production method enhance the stable reflection and transmission of the laser. 3 > The new pickup uses much higher laser power - enough to record on a Dual Layer Disc, while maintaining a long life equivalent to the pickup used for Single Layer Disc recording. 4 > The newly developed servo-control mechanism - which is resistant to the noises that occur at laser reflections and transmissions at each layer - ensures fewer access errors, even in unstable situations. In addition to these new technologies, the Dual Layer Disc provides the same exceptional robustness and reliability as the Single Layer Disc. *This figure is approximate. The precise recording duration will depend on the bit rate selected. PFD50DLA Professional Disc Single Layer Disc Disc Substrate Recording Layer Cover Layer One Reflection Dual Layer Disc Disc Substrate Recording Layer 0 Space Layer (25μm) Recording Layer 1 Cover Layer (75μm) One Reflection and Two Transmissions Require More Laser Power 5 File-based Disc Recording IT/Network Friendly Scene Selection Function Sony XDCAM HD products record material as data files using the industry-standard MXF (Material eXchange Format) file format. This allows material to be handled with great flexibility in an IT-based environment - easily available for copying, transferring, sharing and archiving. These operations are accomplished without the need for “digitising”. File-based data copying allows for degradation-free dubbing of AV content, which can be performed easily on a PC. The file-based recording system also allows material to be viewed directly on a PC, simply by linking it to the XDCAM unit via an i.LINK or Hi-Speed USB (USB 2.0) connection*. This works in the same way as a PC reading files on an external drive. The Scene Selection function allows simple cuts-only editing* to be performed within the camcorder or deck. The result of the edit can be saved as an XDCAM EDL (known as a “Clip List”), which can be written back to the original disc to stay with the material. The disc can then be replayed according to the Clip List so that only selected portions are played out in the required order. The Scene Selection function presents dramatic improvements over conventional workflows, especially when transferring material to a non-linear editor or server, or when searching for material or edit points in linear editing systems. When GUI-based operation is preferred, the Scene Selection operation can also be performed on a PC running the PDZ-1 Proxy Browsing Software. This is supplied with all XDCAM products, providing a visually familiar working environment. XDCAM HD camcorders and decks are equipped with IT-friendly, PC-based interfaces. These include an i.LINK interface supporting DV OUT and File Access Mode as standard, and a Gigabit Ethernet interface available on the PDW-F75 and PDW-F30 decks as an option. Connecting the XDCAM HD system to an Ethernet network offers users a new style of network-based operation that can dramatically improve the efficiency of their workflow. The PDW-U1** drive uses the common USB interface for easy connectivity and wide compatibility with most PCs. *Supported interfaces vary by products. **The initial version of the PDW-U1 is read-only, and cannot write files onto Professional Disc media. This capability will be available with a software upgrade targeted for release in Spring 2008. No Overwriting of Footage Instant recording with no overwriting of existing footage makes each new recording on an empty area of the disc. This prevents accidental recording over good takes and eliminates the need for searching for the correct position to start the next recording. In short, it means the camcorder is always ready for the next shot. *The video and audio of a clip cannot be edited independently. Selectable Modes of File Recording XDCAM HD camcorders and the PDW-F75 deck provide two modes for file recording. In standard operation, one clip file is created each time recording is started and stopped*. The other mode, called Clip Continuous REC mode, which is a feature of the PDW-F335, PDW-F355, and PDW-F75**, allows one clip file to be created containing a number of takes*. Although it is a single clip, Thumbnail searching and the Expand function are available as if individual clips had been created. Users can choose the most suitable mode depending on the type of application. *Each take needs to be longer than two seconds. **Available when recording is remotely controlled via an RS-442A or RS-232C interface, or during Trigger REC mode via an HD-SDI interface. Normal Mode REC START REC START Clip 1 Clip 2 REC START Take 1 REC START Take 2 Thumbnail Pictures for Instant Access to Files 6 Clip 3 Clip Continuous REC Mode Clip 1 With all XDCAM HD products, video and audio are recorded as a clip file each time a recording is started and stopped. During playback, cue-up to the next or previous clips is possible simply by pressing the ‘Next’ or ‘Previous’ button, as you would do on a CD or DVD player. Furthermore, thumbnails are automatically generated for each clip as a visual reference, allowing operators to cue-up to a desired scene simply by guiding the cursor to it. The ‘Expand’ function allows one selected clip in the Thumbnail display to be divided into 12 even-time intervals, each with their own thumbnail identifier. This is useful when searching for a specific scene within a lengthy clip. REC START Expand Function REC START Take 3 Other Features Proxy Data for Streamlined Workflow Metadata At the same time as recording high-resolution video and audio data, XDCAM HD also records a low-resolution version of this AV data on the disc. Called “Proxy Data”, this is much smaller in size than the high-resolution data (1.5 Mb/s for video and 0.5 Mb/s for audio), and its format is identical to that used in the standard definition XDCAM line-up. Because of its lower resolution, Proxy Data can be transferred to a standard computer at a much higher speed, and can be browsed and edited using the PDZ-1 Proxy Browsing Software (or other compatible editing software offered by many industryleading manufacturers). The PDZ-1 software can also convert the Proxy Data to ASF format for replay via Windows Media Player for widespread viewing on the desktop. Proxy Data can also be viewed directly on a PC without data transfer using an i.LINK (File Access Mode) connection, and can be transferred via a standard Ethernet network. The flexibility of Proxy Data means that it can be used for a variety of applications, such as immediate logging on location, off-line editing, client approvals and more. All XDCAM HD camcorders and decks can record metadata, as well as the video and audio essence. Information such as production dates, creator names and camera setup parameters can be stored together with the AV material on the disc using the supplied PDZ-1 software. This makes it possible to organize and search through all recordings effectively. One particular metadata, called EssenceMark™ (Shot Mark), is a convenient reference that can be added to selected frames for instant access during editing. Easy Integration into Editing Systems XDCAM HD products are equipped with both conventional AV and IT-based interfaces for integration into a wide array of editing environments. These interfaces* include HD-SDI, HD analogue component video, analogue/digital audio and RS-422A 9-pin remote control - for connection to a wide variety of VTRs, linear and non-linear editors and audio mixers. SD interfaces**, including SD-SDI and SD analogue composite, are also provided for down-converted SD outputs, allowing the XDCAM HD system to be integrated into conventional SD-based editing environments as well. XDCAM HD devices** also provide an i.LINK interface that supports DV OUT and File Access Mode. Recordings made in both MPEG HD and DVCAM formats can be output as DV files via the i.LINK port and for use in DV-based non-linear editing systems. The i.LINK (File Access Mode) allows not only SD (DVCAM) files but also HD (MPEG HD) files to be written (recorded) onto and read from Professional Disc media. This allows the user to implement an extremely compact and affordable HD non-linear editing system, using an XDCAM HD camcorder or deck and an i.LINK-compatible laptop PC. Another new, powerful, yet cost-effective option for desktop editing is the PDW-U1 drive unit. This can serve as an external drive of a PC via its USB interface, and performs high-speed transfer of material from Professional Disc media to a non-linear editing system***. EssenceMark (Shot Mark 1) Display Easy Maintenance and High Reliability Unlike tape-based systems, there is no mechanical contact between the equipment and recording media. This ensures a high level of durability, long media life and high resistance to shock and vibrations. *The supported interfaces vary by product. **Except on the PDW-U1. ***The initial version of the PDW-U1 is read-only, and cannot write files onto Professional Disc media. However, this capability will be available with a software upgrade targeted for release in Spring 2008. 7 XDCAM HD Camcorders PDW-F355/PDW-F335 Camcorder The PDW-F355 and PDW-F335 are highly versatile and cost-effective high definition camcorders. They are equipped with three 1/2-inch HD CCDs and record 1080/50i, 59.94i, 23.98P, 25P and 29.97P pictures. Both models can also record in DVCAM mode. The PDW-F355 and PDW-F335 are packed with features for creative shooting such as interval recording, slow-shutter operation and a selection of gamma curves for precise image control. In addition, the PDW-F355 provides a “Slow & Quick Motion” function, for film-like “over-cranking” and “under-cranking”. Disc recording provides a number of benefits that are especially useful during shooting. For example, because new footage is always recorded onto an empty area of the disc, there is no need to cue-up to the next recording position before shooting. This means that operators can start recording without the worry of accidentally recording over existing footage. In short, XDCAM HD camcorders are ideal for a broad range of applications, including news gathering, field production, event shooting, TV entertainment and documentaries. PDW-F335 PDW-F355 8 Product Features Three 1/2-inch Power HAD HD CCDs Slow & Quick Motion (PDW-F355) The PDW-335 and PDW-355 are equipped with three 1/2-inch HD Power HAD™ CCDs, each with a high density of approximately 1.56 megapixels (1440 x 1080). These extremely highperformance CCDs provide a sensitivity of F9 (at 2000 lx, 3200K), a signal-to-noise ratio of 54 dB, and a low vertical smear level of -120 dB. The PDW-F355 offers a powerful Slow & Quick Motion function. This enables users to create elegant fast- and slow-motion footage - commonly refered to as over- and under-cranking in the film world. The PDW-F355 can capture images at frame rates selectable from four fps (frame per second) to 60 fps in increments of 1 fps. For example,when viewed at 23.98P, images captured at four fps will appear six times faster than normal. Conversely, images captured at 60 fps will appear 2.5 times slower than normal. The quality of the slow- and fast-motion images created using the Sony PDW-F355 camcorder is extremely high. Users can see the results directly in the camcorder’s LCD screen. This ensures maximum creativity during the shooting process. 12-bit A/D Conversion XDCAM HD camcorders incorporate high-integrity 12-bit A/D converters which allow images captured by the Power HAD CCDs to be processed with great precision. This high-resolution A/D conversion allows the contrast to be reproduced faithfully in both mid-to-dark tone and bright areas of the picture. Advanced Digital Signal Processing (ADSP) A key to quality in Digital Signal Processing is how many bits are used in non-linear processes, such as gamma correction. The ADSP used in XDCAM HD uses more than 30 bits, minimising rounding errors to maintain a high quality image. The ADSP also provides highly sophisticated image controls, such as skin tone detail control and Dynamic Contrast Control. Multi-format Recording in HD/SD and Interlace/Progressive Users can record in either HD (MPEG HD) or SD (DVCAM) and in interlace (50i or 59.94i) or progressive (23.98P, 25P, 29.97P) mode. Creative Versatility for Movie Making The PDW-335 and PDW-355 , camcorders are part of Sony’s CineAlta family, and provide many creative features for movie production. Slow & Quick Motion (PDW-F355 only) provides stunningly impressive slow and fast motion images and Interval Recording can be used for “Time-Lapse” operation. Format Capturing 23.98P/29.97P 4P-60P in 1P increments 25P 4P-50P in 1P increments *When capturing at 31-60 fps (in 23.98P/29.97P mode)/26-50 fps (in 25P mode), the camcorders provide lower vertical resolution than in normal capturing mode. *This function is available when the recording mode is set to “MPEG HD”. Multi-camera operation in 23.98P Mode The PDW-F355 camcorder has a Genlock video input that can accept a 23.98PsF signal input. This allows multi-camera operations in 23.98P mode. The camcorder can also output 23.98PsF pictures as well as 2-3 pull-down converted images from the HD-SDI connector. Interval Recording Function XDCAM HD camcorders feature Interval Recording, which records pictures at pre-determined intervals. This is ideal for shooting over long periods of time and also when creating pictures with special effects such as fast motion “Time-Lapse”. Selectable Gamma Curves Operators can choose from five gamma curves (Standard, CINE 1, 2, 3 and 4). The CINE 1-4 gamma curves provide natural tonal reproductions for scenes with wide dynamic range. The CINE 1 and 2 curves are inherited from HyperGamma, which is available in the top-of-the-range HDCAM CineAlta camcorders. CINE 1 CINE 2 CINE 3 CINE 4 9 XDCAM HD Camcorders A Wide Choice of Lenses Picture Cache Recording A variety of 1/2-inch HD lenses are available from major manufacturers for use with XDCAM HD camcorders. A 2/3-inch lens* can also be used with an optional LO-32BMT lens adaptor. This allows users to choose from a broad range of lenses, including cinema-style lenses, according to their shooting requirements. Picture Cache Recording provides up to 12 seconds of loop recording using solid state memory. When the camcorder is in Standby mode and the REC button is pressed, everything that happened up to 12 seconds before that moment can be recorded to disc. Valuable shots, which would otherwise have been missed, can be captured. *In this configuration, the resulting focal length will be 1.37 times the actual focal length of the lens. Precise Image Control Advanced image control features such as Skin Tone Detail and Dynamic Contrast Control allow operators to create stunning images. High Quality Audio Four channels of uncompressed digital audio can be recorded at 16 bit resolution and 48kHz sampling. Compact and Lightweight LO-32BMT Low-Light Shooting With ‘Slow Shutter’ and ‘Turbo Gain’ A compact, lightweight and ergonomically well balanced design provides a high level of mobility and comfort in various shooting situations. The camcorders weigh only 5.5 kg (12 lb 2 oz) including viewfinder, microphone, disc, and BP-GL95 battery. XDCAM HD camcorders offer Slow Shutter and Turbo Gain for shooting in low-light conditions. These can be used separately or together depending on the shooting conditions or the operator’s preference. The Slow Shutter function allows shutter speeds longer than the frame rate to be used to intentionally blur images of moving objects. The Turbo Gain function allows the camera gain to be increased by up to +48 dB. Rugged, Reliable Operation Noise Reduction 3.5-inch* Colour LCD Screen XDCAM HD camcorders incorporate noise reduction to reproduce low-light scenes more clearly. A large, easy-to-view, colour LCD screen on the camcorder’s side panel enables operators to instantly review recorded footage, as well as access the camera’s set-up menus and view status information such as the audio meters and the remaining disc and battery time. It also enables advanced operations such as Thumbnail Search and Scene Selection. A number of unique design features are used to minimise errors caused by shock or by dust entering the disc drive. The disc drive entrance is concealed by two lids, helping to prevent dirt or moisture from entering the drive. In addition, four rubber dampers are used to hold the disc drive block in place and to absorb mechanical shocks. *Viewable area measured diagonally. 10 Product Features Wide Variety of Interfaces Other Camcorder Features XDCAM HD camcorders are equipped with a wide range of interfaces as standard.
