With the XDCAM EX products, recordings are made as data files
in the “MP4” format, which is widely used in a number of recent
electronic portable devices and has been standardised by ISO.
The file-based recording allows material to be handled with
great flexibility in a commonly available IT-based environment
for copying, transferring, sharing, and archiving. All these
operations are accomplished lossless without any ”re-digitising”
process required. File-based data copying allows lossless dubbing of AV content, which can be performed easily on a PC.
The file-based recording system also allows for material to be
viewed directly on a PC – simply by inserting the SxS PRO memory card into the ExpressCard slot on a PC, or by linking a PC to
the XDCAM EX unit via a USB connection. This works in just the
same way as a PC reads files on an internal or external drives.
The high speed file-based operation and SxS PRO memory card
can dramatically improve the efficiency and quality of professional video applications.
* On the XDCAM EX camcorder, images are handled as 23.98P and recorded
as 59.94i signals via 2-3 pull-down in 1440 x 1080/23.98P (SP) mode.
** This capability is planned to be available with future software upgrade.
High-quality Uncompressed Audio Recording
In addition to HD video recording, high-quality audio is an
equally significant feature in the XDCAM EX products.

Instant-access Thumbnail Search
With “Expand” Function
Each time a recording is started and stopped on the XDCAM
EX products, the video and audio signals are recorded as one
clip. During playback, users can cue-up to the next or previous
clip 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 a thumbnail and pressing the ‘Play’ button. For
further convenience, 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 if an operator wanted to quickly
search for a particular scene within a
lengthy clip.
No Accidental Overwriting of Footage,
Immediate Recording Start
By virtue of recording on flash memory card, the XDCAM EX
products make each new recording on an empty area of the
card. This is extremely convenient, as camera operators do not
have to worry about accidentally recording over good takes,
and they don’t have to search through footage for the correct
position to start the next recording. In short, it means the camera is always ready for the next shot!
Metadata
The XDCAM EX products are capable of recording a variety of
metadata, which provides a huge advantage when searching for specific data after the initial recording has been made.
Information such as production dates, creator names, video
format, and camera settings can be saved together with the
AV material. This makes it possible to organise and search
through all recordings effectively. One particular metadata,
called Shot Mark, is a convenient reference that can be added
to desired frames to make them easy to recall in subsequent
editing process.

Unique Focus Operation
Unique Focus Operation
Professional Manual Focus and Auto Focus
AF Assist
The lens adopts a newly developed and unique focus ring
mechanism, which offers two types of manual focus, plus an
auto focus operation. The lens is equipped with two independent focus wheel mechanisms, which can be switched by
sliding the focus ring itself back and forth.
When the focus ring is in the front position, the lens works in the
same way as a typical auto focus lens on a handheld camcorder. In this case, either manual or auto focus mode can be
selected by the AF/MF switch on the lens. On the other hand,
when the focus ring is set to the back position, the lens has an
absolute focus position, and works in the same way as interchangeable-lens, which professional users are familiar with.

The AF (Auto Focus) Assist function of the XDCAM EX camcorders enables operators to manually change focus positions using
the focus ring during AF mode. This means that AF reference
focus positions can be positively shifted manually to a new
position.
MF Assist
The MF (Manual Focus) Assist function of the XDCAM EX camcorders helps to precisely focus on the target subject when
shooting in MF mode. When the MF Assist is enabled, the auto
focus is momentarily activated when the user stops adjusting
the focus ring. The camera will then finely focus on the subject
closest to the focal point of the lens at that time.

Slow & Quick Motion Function
The XDCAM EX camcorders offer a powerful Slow & Quick Motion function – commonly known as over-cranking and undercranking by filmmakers – that enables users to create unique
‘looks’ or slow- and fast-motion special effects. The XDCAM
EX camcorders can capture images at frame rates selectable
from 1 fps (frame per second) to 60 fps in 720P mode and from
1 fps to 30 fps in 1080P mode, in increments of 1 fps.
For example,when viewed at 23.98P, images captured at 60 fps
will appear 2.5 times slower than normal. Conversely, images
captured at four fps will appear six times faster than normal.
With the Slow & Quick Motion function of this camcorder,
images are recorded natively with no padded frames and at
full resolution. The obtained quality of the slow- and fast-motion images is extremely high from those created in the editing
process. In addition, these slow- and quick-motion images
can be played back immediately after shooting, without using
any converters or processing on non-linear editing systems.
