OUTLINE
The DFW-SX900/X700 is a C-mounted color digital video camera utilizing a 1/2-type PS IT CCD. The IEEE1394-1995 digital
interface realizes a transfer speed of 400M bps and outputs of SXGA (1,280 × 960)/YUV (4 : 2 : 2)/7.5 fps with the DFW-SX900,
XGA (1,024 × 768)/YUV (4 : 2 : 2)/15 fps with the DFW-X700. In addition, the DFW-SX900/X700 also adopts a primary color
filter CCD to realize good color reproductivity, as well as a square pixel CCD to eliminate the need for aspect ratio conversion in
the image processor.

FUNCTIONS
The DFW-SX900/X700 differs from the conventional analog camera in that no video signals will be output by just supplying
power. It will start operating when designated commands are written in the CSR (Control & Status Register) specified in the
1394-based Digital Camera Specification Ver.1.30. For details on the steps to video signal output and details of CSR, refer to
“SETTINGS OF CAMERA CONTROL AND STATUS REGISTER” on page 20 and “COMMAND SENDING PROCEDURE
UNTIL IMAGES ARE DISPLAYED” on page 33.
This chapter describes the functions of the camera which can be set using the CSR.

FUNCTIONS
Gain
Used for setting the gain of the video signal amplifier. The gain can be set to 180 steps between the standard gain and
maximum +18 dB. (1 step is not 0.1 dB.)
By setting AUTO to ON, the gain will be automatically adjusted to the appropriate exposure. The range of operations is 0 to
+18 dB.
Shutter
The CCD exposure time can be set between the maximum 2 seconds and minimum 1/20,000 seconds. By setting AUTO to
ON, the exposure time will be automatically adjusted to the appropriate exposure.
Auto Exposure
Used for setting the exposure compensation for when Gain or Shutter or both are operating in the AUTO mode. When both
Gain and Shutter are set to Manual, the Auto Exposure setting will be invalid. The range of operations is about –1EV to
+0.5EV.
If both Gain and Shutter are operated in the AUTO mode by Auto Exposure, the ranges of operations of both are as follows.
(However, these values are approximate values and may differ according to the adjusted and operating states of the camera.)

EV10
AGC
EV17* (SX900)
CCD IRIS
* EV16 for X700
Brightness
The brightness of images can be controlled by changing the black level setting. Adjust the brightness if the appropriate
gradation cannot be obtained due to the blurring of the black portions of the image.
The range of settings is about 0 to 75 (when gamma is ON (1) in full range 255).

DFW-SX900
DFW-X700
FUNCTIONS
Gamma
Used for setting gamma compensation to OFF, ON (1), or ON (2).
OFF : Outputs CCD signals for image processing linearly.
ON (1) : For obtaining natural gradation taking into account the characteristics of the monitor.
ON (2) : For obtaining three-dimensional images with a subject that has a small luminance dynamic range.

Concept of Gamma Characteristics
Sharpness
Used for adjusting sharpness of the image.
The sharpness can be changed by about more than 200% from the factory setting.
White Balance
Used for adjusting white balance by adjusting R-gain and B-gain. White subjects can be shot in white by setting the white
balance according to the color temperature of the luminance light. The White Balance operation mode can be selected from
three modes – Manual, One Push, and ATW. The range of operations of each mode is as follows.
Manual : 2,400 to 10,000 K or more
One Push : 2,400 to 10,000 K or more
ATW
: 2,650 to 6,000 K or more (Excluding fluorescent light)
Color Temperature
This function was originally intended for selecting the optical filter. However with the DFW-SX900/X700, the R-gain and Bgain are set to the appropriate White Balance when color temperatures 3,200 K and 5,600 K light sources are used.
Hue
Used for adjusting the hue of the image.
The hue can be changed by about more than ±15 degrees from the rotary angle of the NTSC Vector Scope luminance scope
based on the factory setting.
11
DFW-SX900
DFW-X700
FUNCTIONS
Saturation
Used for adjusting the saturation of the image.
The saturation can be changed by about more than 150% from the factory setting.
Isochronous Start/Stop
Used for turning ON/OFF the output of IEEE1394 isochronous transmitted images. When image output is set to ON, the LED
in front of the camera will light up in orange.
One Shot
Used for outputting only one image data (one frame) in the Isochronous OFF state. The difference between this function and
Trigger described on the next section is that image input is started by the IEEE1394 command instead of external trigger
signals. The timing at which exposure starts is also undefined (within 133.3 ms after the command is received with
DFW-SX900 and within 66.7 ms with DFW-X700).
The LED in front of the camera lights up in orange when image data is isochronously transmitted by the One Shot function.
Trigger
Used for setting the external trigger mode to ON or OFF. No moving image signals are output in this mode.
Isochronous output is stopped at the point Trigger ON is set even in the Isochronous Start state. When external trigger pulses
(TTL level, negative polarity, pulse width above 1 ms) are input, one image (one frame) exposed for the specified time
(specified at the shutter) will be output from that instant. The time to the start of image data output after the external trigger
pulse is input can be changed according to the exposure time.
Paint
Used for changing the R-gain and B-gain by only the values specified at R-offset and B-offset respectively in the use of One
Push White Balance. Use of this function is recommended when not adjusting White Balance to white. For example, when
viewing a subject on the white 6,800 K monitor using a 3,200 K light source, this function can be used to adjust colors on the
monitor to the same state as viewing a subject with the naked eye using a 3,200 K light source.
Y/Cr/Cb → R/G/B conversion
The DFW-SX900/X700 outputs Y/Cr/Cb signals as digital image signals.
The equations for converting these signals to R/G/B signals are as follows.
R ≈ 1.4022Cr + Y
B ≈ 1.7710Cb + Y
G ≈ Y – 0.7144Cr – 0.3457Cb

When capturing the images at same time with several cameras
Inputting trigger and pulse conditions
<Inputting method>
Input external triggers to the “TRIG IN” connector on the rear panel of the camera using the 4-pin connector provided.
As shown in the figure, the pin 3 is the “Trigger Input” and the pin 2 is the “GND”. Design the cable accordingly.
<Pulse conditions>
The input pulse is a 5 V negative polarity pulse. Although the falling edge of the signal is detected as the start of trigger, the
pulse width must be set 1 ms or more.
The trigger can be also applied by setting the pin 3 “Trigger Input” to the pin 2 “GND”. (Take note of chattering at this time.)

FUNCTIONS
Internal operations of camera in trigger shutter operation mode
An about 3 µs width SUB pulse is generated immediately after trigger is input. Signals accumulated in the CCD sensor until
then are eliminated, after which exposure is started. After the exposure time based on the shutter speed set passes, VD is
generated inside the camera. (Specifically, VD is generated about 10 µs before exposure ends.)
After the A period passes from the falling edge of the VD, images are output during the B period.

FUNCTIONS
The trigger acceptance prohibition period continues until all of CCD image has been transferred out of the camera.
When the transfer frame rate is reduced (3.75 fps of DFW-SX900, 7.5 fps of DFW-X700), data will continue to be transferred
even after readout of image has been completed as shown in the figure below. The trigger prohibition period continues until
data transfer ends.
All trigger inputs to the camera during the “Trigger Acceptance Prohibition Period” will be ignored.
The following equation is one method of roughly calculating the acceptable trigger interval.

Partial Scan Mode
The partial scan mode is a function for outputting part of the full images a region of interest on the whole image.
When the screen size needs to be set to the full size (DFW-SX900: SXGA, DFW-X700: XGA), data volume and system load
can be decreased by setting the required screen size using the partial scan mode (Format_7).

Cutting by partial scan mode
Horizontal (Horizontal Direction)
Cutting size
Images can be cut only in rectangular shapes (including squares) and not with irregular features (convex and concave).
Minimum unit size is shown in the table below. Minimum unit sizes can be combined and cut out together. The position of
each unit can be specified but should not exceed the full size of the screen.
Note) This function can be used in both the normal mode and external trigger mode.
The frame rate is the same as the normal rate.

SETTINGS OF CAMERA CONTROL AND STATUS REGISTER
This chapter describes CSR addresses using the lower 32 bits of 64 bits. (CSR: Abbreviation of Control and Status Register)
The omitted upper 32 bits are ∗∗∗∗FFFFh. (∗∗∗∗ changes according to the connection of the IEEE1394 Serial Bus.)
Read/Write of the CSR is executed in units of Quadlet (4 bytes). The CSR address is the address of the leading byte of the
Quadlet.
When describing the 32-bit command set for CSR in Hex, bit 0 is described as MSB (Most Significant Bit).
Example :

COMMAND SETTING AND OPERATION TIMING
The DFW-SX900/X700 operates synchronously with internal pulses called VD. VDs are reference signals inside the camera and
cannot be observed from outside the camera.
Even if commands are set to the CSR of the camera, it does not mean that they become effective the instant they have been
written. They become effective after the VD period set to the CSR has been completed and the next VD pulse is generated as
shown in the following figure. The command settings are set for video signals by the Isochronous output after that. (The timing at
which the command settings become effective may delay according to the internal state of the camera.)
When operating at a low frame rate even if the transmission time of one frame exceeds one VD, and the CSR settings are changed
during transmission, the command settings will not be set to the video signals until the frame currently being output is complete.
Set command to CSR in this period

When low frame rate is selected, command

completion of isochronous output before setting
Isochronous Transmission Start/Stop command and actual operation timing
As shown in the following figure, it takes at least about 1 V for the actual isochronous transmission of image data to start or
stop after the Isochronous Start/Stop command (CSR F0F00614h: ISO_EN) has been set to the CSR of the camera. (VDs are
the reference signals inside the camera and cannot be observed from outside the camera.)
Isochronous transmission start/stop is executed in units of frames. Isochronous transmission will not start/stop before one
image output ends. This means that if a low frame rate at which the transmission of one image takes a long time is selected, the
time taken for executing Isochronous Stop will be long.

When the Trigger Mode (CSR F0F00830h) is set to ON, the camera will start exposure as shown in the following figure when
it detects the external trigger signal.
After the exposure time set by the Shutter command (CSR F0F0081Ch), VD pulses will be generated inside the camera.
Images will be isochronously output after the A period from the falling edge of the VD.
