Digital HD Video Camera Recorder HVR-V1E Downloaded From CamcorderManual.com Sony Manuals Adding 1080-25p Image Capture to the Sony HDV Family of Camcorders – the HVR-V1E HDV Camcorder Since their sensational debut in 2004, Sony HDVTM products adopting the HDV 1080i specification have continued to exploit new possibilities in cost-effective HD program production. With high picture performance and superb functionality, they are trusted around the world for a wide range of HD applications. In line with its commitment to the HDV format, Sony introduces the HVR-V1E – a stunning new model that extends the HDV agenda into the world of drama productions. The HVR-V1E offers 25p progressive scanning, in addition to 50i Interlaced. The images captured at 25p are recorded on tape at a 50i field rate by dividing each frame into two fields. Using a compatible nonlinear editor*1, these are reverted back to their original progressive frames, allowing precise 25p editing of the HDV material. This approach also allows the progressive images of the HVR-V1E to be easily integrated into existing HDV systems operating in 50i mode. In its compact, lightweight, and ergonomically designed chassis, the HVR-V1E camcorder integrates advanced technologies such as the newly developed 3 ClearVid CMOS Sensor imaging system – which is only made possible by Sony’s industry-leading semiconductor technology – and a stunning optical 20x Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* ® zoom lens. Such features ensure operators can make the most of the HDV format quality with an extreme level of mobility, ease of use, and operational comfort suited for any shooting scenario. In addition to HDV 1080i recording and playback, the camcorder also offers DVCAMTM/DV recording and playback capabilities, as well as down-conversion of recordings made in HDV 1080i. These bridges between HD and SD allow the camcorder to be used in any DV-based system, whether it uses the HDV, DVCAM, or DV format. And for even greater power, the optional HVR-DR60 Hard Disk Recording Unit – which is optimized for use on the HVR-V1E camcorder – streamlines the subsequent editing and archiving processes. Adding this unit allows images captured by the camcorder to be simultaneously recorded to tape and hard disk. After a shoot is complete, simply connecting the HVR-DR60 to a compatible nonlinear editing system provides quick access to files from the editing software and completely eliminates the time-consuming digitizing process. In addition to a maximum recording time of 4.5 hours on the HVR-DR60, this hybrid tape and hard disk recording system offers a multitude of benefits for shooting, editing, and archiving operations. Available at a price comparable to Sony DVCAM handheld camcorders, the HVR-V1E offers new creative shooting opportunities to both the HD and SD worlds. *1 Please contact your nearest Sony office or authorized dealer for compatible nonlinear editors. Downloaded From CamcorderManual.com Sony Manuals 2 Images Simulated Downloaded From CamcorderManual.com Sony Manuals 3 HDV FORMAT From the outset, the HDV 1080i specification of the HDV*2 format has been developed to record stunning HD images with 1080 active scanning lines on DV-specification cassette tapes. It adopts the MPEG-2 compression format, using 8-bit digital component recording at approximately 25 Mb/s, which is the same data rate as the DVCAM/DV format, enabling a long recording time on compact DV cassettes. For example, more than 60 minutes of high-quality HD images can be recorded on a mini DV cassette. As with the DVCAM and DV formats, the HDV format allows an i.LINK connection to compatible nonlinear editors, enabling a cost-effective HD production system. The sheer volume of HDV 1080i professional and consumer equipment used around the world is a clear indication that HDV 1080i has become one of the most popular HD formats. *2 Although not used in Sony HDV products, the HDV format also defines the HDV 720p specification, which features 720 effective scanning lines (progressive scanning system). Long Recording Time The HVR-V1E uses mini cassette tapes and provides a maximum recording time of 63 minutes with the PHDVM-63DM. INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES 3 ClearVid CMOS Sensor Imaging System Enhanced Imaging Processor (EIP) The ClearVid CMOS Sensor has been developed using the most advanced technologies in the semiconductor industry. Thanks to the unique grid arrangement of the photo diode sensors, in which each is rotated by 45 degrees, sensor resolution has been optimized and the photosensitive surface area has been maximized. The EIP is a newly developed imaging processor that brings out the full power of the 3 ClearVid CMOS Sensor imaging system. It handles video data in 1920 x 1080p and 4:2:2 color space for high-quality signal processing before recording it to tape in the HDV format*3. Combined use of the EIP and 3 ClearVid CMOS Sensor imaging system allows the camcorder to provide extremely high image quality with a high level of gradation and detailed image reproduction. TM The HVR-V1E employs a 3-chip ClearVid CMOS Sensor imaging system, which produces high-resolution (1920 x 1080) images with rich and natural colors. The combined use of the 3 ClearVid CMOS Sensor imaging system and the Enhanced Imaging ProcessorTM has enabled a most precise interpolation scheme, which concludes within each R, G, and B channel. This allows a higher resolution for each R, G, and B channel than is offered by equivalent-class camcorders that resort to spatial offset techniques to improve resolution. Unlike CCD sensors, there is no vertical smear in the ClearVid CMOS Sensor when shooting high-intensity subjects, further reducing shooting-condition constraints. *3 The HDV recording is in 1440 x 1080i and 4:2:0 color space. Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T * Lens The HVR-V1E is equipped with a high-quality Carl Zeiss VarioSonnar T * lens. Thanks to its multi-layer coating and extra-low dispersion glass, this lens offers excellent spectral characteristics, which result in virtually negligible chromatic aberrations. Optical 20x Lens and Optional 0.8x Wide Conversion Lens The Vario-Sonnar T * lens of the HVR-V1E features a 20x zoom function. Moreover, the built-in digital extender*4 increases the zoom ratio to approximately 30x. The optional VCL-HG0868K 0.8x wide conversion lens uses the bayonet mount system for instant attachment or detachment. Combining these lens features, operators can effortlessly capture close-up or wide-angle shots as their video production requires. ClearVid CMOS Sensor . Larger pixel size . Unique 45º angle pixel layout *4 The digital extender is not available in progressive scan mode. Super SteadyShot (Optical) The HVR-V1E employs the Super SteadyShotTM system, which has sensors that detect horizontal and vertical movements independently. It uses a prism system located behind the lens to adjust and optically compensate for unsteady camera handling.

This is ideal for recording subjects over long periods, such as the movement of clouds or the blossoming of flowers. The Shot TransitionTM function allows for smooth automatic scene transitions. After an operator has programmed a shot’s start and end settings (e.g., for zoom, focus, iris, gain, shutter speed, and white balance) and pressed the start button, it ensures a smooth transition takes place over the duration of the shot by automatically calculating intermediate setting values. This is very useful when complex camera settings are required during the scene transition – for example, when panning the camcorder from a distant subject to a close subject. Smooth Slow Rec The Smooth Slow Rec*8 function enables clean slow-motion playback by capturing images at four times faster than the normal field rate (200 fields/s). For example, when setting the function to Fine mode, quad-speed images are captured for three seconds, stored in the built-in buffer memory, and then recorded to tape (in either HDV, DVCAM, or DV format) as slow-motion pictures lasting 12 seconds. The Smooth Slow Rec function also supports Standard and Low modes, which can record high-speed images for 6 and 12 seconds, respectively.

OPERATIONAL VERSATILITY Picture ProfileTM Up to six different picture-tonal settings can be registered in the memory with desired names as picture profiles on the HVR-V1E and displayed on the LCD monitor at the touch of a button. This allows operators to easily call up customized picture-tonal settings to suit particular shooting conditions, rather than having to readjust the camera each time. The factory default setting includes six pre-loaded picture profiles for typical shooting conditions. Last Scene Review At the touch of a button, the video and audio of the last shot can be instantly played back on the LCD monitor. This is achieved without even having to switch from "Camera mode" to "VTR mode". After playback, the tape is automatically cued up to the end of the last shot to continue back space editing. These features allow operators to seamlessly shoot and review material. Playback Zoom Using the playback zoom function, a selected area of the recorded HD images can be enlarged and played back on the LCD monitor and viewfinder, allowing operators to check them for certain details. These enlarged images can also be output in SD format via the i.LINK and analog connectors, allowing operators to cut out parts of the HD image and use them as SD material. Downloaded From CamcorderManual.com Sony Manuals TC LINK Function for Multi-camera Operations Using the TC LINK function, the time code of the HVR-V1E can be synchronized with another camcorder such as an HVR-Z1E, a DSR-PD170P, or a second HVR-V1E. By connecting the HVR-V1E to the other camcorder via an i.LINK cable and activating this function, the HVR-V1E’s time code generator will switch to free-run mode and reset its time code to that provided from the connected camcorder. Once the time code of the HVR-V1E is synchronized*9, the i.LINK cable can be disconnected, and the next HVR-V1E that needs synchronized time code can be set up.

Downloaded From CamcorderManual.com Sony Manuals 10 A Variety of Gamma Settings Cinematone Color The HVR-V1E offers a choice of various gamma setting functions, which makes it ideal for use in creative productions such as cinema films and drama programs. The Cinematone ColorTM function has been developed based on a thorough analysis of the color tone of cinema film, and the voices of colorists engaged in digital cinema productions. ❚ Cinematone Gamma The Cinematone Color function provides cinematic color for deep-color and high-contrast images approaching cinema film. In combined use with the Cinematone Gamma function, more cinema-quality images can be captured. The HVR-V1E provides a special gamma feature – the Cinematone GammaTM – which allows operators to quickly set up and load a gamma curve with similar contrast characteristics to a film gamma curve. Three gamma curves can be selected from “OFF” (normal gamma), “TYPE1”, or “TYPE2”. Output (%) Gamma Characteristics Cinematone Color “OFF” Cinematone Color “ON” 120 100 Easy Operation for Cinematographers 80 60 Normal 40 20 0 0 20 40 60 80 100 120 140 Input (%) ❚ Focal Length Display in Meters or Feet Normal Gamma Cinamatone Gamma Type1 The HVR-V1E can display setting values in a format that film camera operators are familiar with. TYPE1 Cinamatone Gamma Type2 The focal length can be displayed on the LCD monitor and viewfinder in either feet (ft) or meters (m). ❚ Shutter Speed Display in Units of Rotation Angles TYPE2 Shutter speeds can also be displayed on the LCD monitor and viewfinder in units of rotation angles converted from shutter speeds. ❚ Black Stretch and Black Compress Black Stretch: Enhances the video signal levels in dark picture areas for clear reproduction of dark contrast, without sacrificing highlight contrast of the same picture. Black Compress: Suppresses video signal levels in dark picture areas to emphasize the depth of dark picture tones. OTHER CONVENIENT FUNCTIONS ❚ Knee Correction The knee correction function compresses the wide dynamic range acquired by the CMOS sensors into the standard video-level range.

Long Recording Time of 4.5 Hours Via a simple i.LINK connection, the HVR-DR60 Hard Disk Recording Unit developed by Sony allows recording of HDV 1080i signals from an HDV camcorder, or DV signals from a DVCAM camcorder. The internal 1.8-inch hard disk drive (HDD) offers a large capacity of 60 GB, which translates into a long recording time of 4.5 hours (270 minutes ) for both formats. HDV 1080i signals are recorded as native HDV files (.m2t), while DVCAM or DV signals are recorded as DV-AVI (type1) or RAWDV files. Hybrid Operation for Reliable Recording and Archiving The HVR-DR60 offers a hybrid recording function, in which video and audio material is recorded simultaneously to the hard disk and tape, so important shots are always secured against loss or accidental deletion. This hybrid function also facilitates instant archiving of source footage – which in most cases does not allow for retakes. After a shoot, operators can immediately archive the source tape and use the HVR-DR60 material as work footage. This saves the time and effort required to copy the original data to a separate high-capacity medium.

This saves the time previously required for digitizing material from the tape to PC. Furthermore, video files stored on the HVR-DR60 can be transferred to a PC running compatible nonlinear editing software at a high speed of approximately 80 Mb/s (around three times faster than real time), which drastically reduces the time needed to copy source material to the editor’s local drive. These features allow operators to focus on more creative and productive editing tasks. Ideal Companion for the HVR-V1E The HVR-DR60 can be used with existing HDV/DVCAM camcorders equipped with an i.LINK interface such as the HVR-Z1E and DSR-PD170P. However, when used with the HVR-V1E, it offers some additional features only available in this combination. ❚ Checking the Operational Status on the HVR-V1E On the LCD monitor and viewfinder of the HVR-V1E, the operational status of the HVR-DR60 – such as connection, recording format, battery level, remaining recording time, recording folder name, etc. – can be checked. This keeps operators informed of both the camcorder and hard drive status, without taking their eyes away from what is being shot. HDD Smart Protection – Robust Recording and Shock Resistance Three advanced technologies are used to ensure the reliable recording performance of the HVR-DR60: Shock Absorbers 1) Rubber shock absorbers hold the HDD unit in place, preventing external shock from being transmitted when the HVR-DR60 chassis is subject to impact. 2) A 3G sensor detects gravitational acceleration in three dimensions, so however the HVR-DR60 may be oriented, the sensor can detect if it has been dropped. Should this occur, power to the HDD is shut off and the recording heads are retracted from the disk platter, 3G Sensor pausing read/write operations. This protects the HDD from being damaged when the unit is accidentally dropped and subject to strong impact. 3) A buffer memory can store approximately 14 seconds of video and audio footage. Recordings are made by first writing the data to the buffer, and then writing the buffer data to the disk platter. Consequently, if the 3G sensor temporarily interrupts disk writes, video footage is not lost. Thanks to such advanced technologies, the HVR-DR60 will continue to record stably even when dropped from as high as 100 cm (39 3/8 inches). Long Operating Hours Using Common Camcorder Batteries HVR-DR60 Status Check The HVR-DR60 uses the same infoLITHIUM L Series batteries as the HVR-V1E, HVR-Z1E, and DSR-PD170P camcorders. With the smallest capacity NP-F570 battery, the HVR-DR60 can run continuously for 5.5 hours (330 min), and with the largest capacity NP-F970, this increases to 18 hours (1080 min). Long operating hours are offered using such camcorder batteries that HDV operators already have at hand. ❚ Tapeless Recording To trigger recording of the HVR-DR60, most HDV camcorders require a tape to be loaded. However, this is not the case with the HVR-V1E. The HVR-V1E sends the same rec start/stop trigger that controls its tape transport to the HVR-DR60. This feature offers operators the choice of tapeless operation or hybrid operation.
