Overview
Features
The CA-TX70 HD Camera Adaptor is a
camera adaptor that allows for long
distance transmission of input and
output signals via a triax cable, and
power supply to the connected camera
or camcorder. Combined with the
HXCU-100 HD Camera Control Unit
(CCU), the adaptor allows you live
broadcast operation.
Cable-free connection to camera/
camcorder
Can be installed on the following
camera/camcorder
•
•
•
•
HXC-D70 series
PMW-500 series 1)
PMW-350 series 2)
PMW-320 series 2)
1) An optional CBK-HD02 SDI/
COMPOSITE Input and 50 Pin Interface
is required.
2) An optional CBK-CE01 50 Pin Interface
and Digital Extender is required.
The adaptor can be installed on the
attachment shoe of a camera/
camcorder, allowing for connection of
input and output signals or power
supplies via the 50 pin interface and
BATT interface. As no cables are
necessary for attachment, the adaptor
offers a solution for solid camerasystem configuration.
Digital triax transmission
The CCU and camera are connected
using the industry-standard doubleshielded triaxial camera cable
(commonly referred to as triax). The
latest Sony-developed digital
transmission technology, which is
incorporated in the adaptor and CCU,
transmits high-resolution pictures
between the adaptor and CCU,
regardless of the cable length.
Support for live camera system
operation
The adaptor is equipped with the
following features and input/output
connectors to allow for live
broadcasting, not only with the HXCD70 but with standalone camcorders.
• Intercom feature (2 switchable lines;
engineer or producer line)
• Tally lamp (red and green)
• Call feature
• Return signal feature (up to
selectable 4 lines)
• Prompter output

• The adaptor can control one PGM (program audio) system.
An audio signal that is input to the PGM1 of CCU is transmitted.
16
Preparation and Setting
Note
When the PMW-500/350/320 Solid-State Memory Camcorder is connected, the
microphone input settings for the intercom headset will be fixed at the following
(factory default) values:
Dynamic / -60dB / Unbalanced
For information on connection to an intercom system and configuration of the
settings, contact your Sony dealer.
Starting the System
1 Attach the adaptor to the camera/camcorder, then connect the adaptor to the CCU
using a triax cable.
2 Set the POWER switch of the adaptor and camera/camcorder to ON, then set the
POWER switch of the CCU to ON. Power will be supplied to the adaptor from the
CCU and the adaptor turns on. The adaptor then supplies power to the camera/
camcorder, which turns on.
While the system is starting up, the POWER lamp (green) blinks at 0.5 Hz. When the
communication for certification between the adaptor and camera/camcorder
completes, the POWER lamp (green) lights.
Note
When the POWER switch of the connected camera/camcorder is set to OFF, or when
the camera/camcorder does not start normally, the POWER lamp (green) keeps
blinking at 0.5 Hz.
Setting the System Format
To record/output with the system, it is necessary to set the video format for the
camera/camcorder, adaptor and CCU.
The adaptor supports the following video formats.
• 1920×1080/59.94i
• 1280×720/59.94P
• 1920×1080/50i
• 1280×720/50P
The video format setting of the adaptor is synchronized with that of the CCU.
Preparation and Setting
17
1 When connected to the HXC-D70 HD Color Camera
Both the video format setting of the adaptor and HXC-D70 are synchronized with that
of the CCU (HXCU-100).
2 When connected to the PMW-500/350/320 Solid-State
Memory Camcorder
As PMW-500/350/320 supports video formats that the adaptor and CCU do not, the
video format setting of the camcorder is not synchronized with those of the CCU. Set
the video format of the camcorder according to the video format setting of the CCU.
The video format can be confirmed in the viewfinder.
If video formats (recording format or system frequency) are inconsistent between the
adaptor and camcorder, the POWER lamp (green) of the adaptor blinks at 2 Hz. For
details, see “Error Messages” on page 19.
Note
As the adaptor supports bidirectional transmission of HD digital signals, the adaptor
will not operate properly if the camcorder is in the SD mode. Also, when an
unsupported video format for the adaptor and CCU is selected or the SDI OUTPUT
setting is set to SD in the camcorder, the adaptor will not operate. For information on
the mode setting of the camcorder, refer to the operating instructions of the
camcorder.

Error Messages
When an error is detected, an error message shown in the below table appears.

Important Notes
on Operation
solvents such as thinners, alcohol,
benzene, and insecticides. They may
damage the surface finish or cause it to
peel off.
When connecting to the HXC-D70
HD Color Camera
Use and storage locations
Store in a level, ventilated place. Avoid
using or storing the adaptor in the
following places.
• In excessive heat or cold. Operating
temperature range is –10°C to + 45°C
(14°F to 113°F). When connected to
the camcorder, the operating
temperature range is 0°C to 40°C
(32°F to 104°F).
• Remember that in summer in warm
climates the temperature inside a car
with the windows closed can easily
exceed 50°C (122°F).
• In damp or dusty locations
• Locations where the adaptor may be
exposed to rain
• Locations subject to violent vibration
• Near strong magnetic fields
• Close to radio or TV transmitters
producing strong electromagnetic
fields.
• In direct sunlight or close to heaters
for extended periods
Do not subject to strong shocks
Do not drop the adaptor or subject it to
strong shocks. The adaptor may be
damaged.
Do not wrap in a cloth or other
covering during operation
Internal temperatures may rise, causing
malfunctions.
Maintenance
Clean the cabinet and panels by wiping
lightly with a soft, dry cloth. If they are
very dirty, use a cloth dampened with a
small amount of neutral detergent, then
wipe dry. Avoid the use of volatile

About Digital Triax
Transmission
Digital triax transmission between
cameras and CCU is protected by
powerful error detection and correction.
However, error may occur from
extraneous noise during long distance
transmission. In this case, image may
be interpolated using the previous
displayed image.
The following transmission delays may
occur during digital triax transmission.
• Between the camera and CCU, a
transmission delay of about 9 msec to
12 msec.
• When the main program’s image is
sent from the CCU to cameras as
return signal, a 1-frame delay occurs
in the viewfinder.
• For the prompter image, a 5-frames
delay can occur in the normal mode.
(In the CCU, you can select the
normal mode or low latency mode
with low resolution images.)
• The MIC 1 and MIC 2 sound signals
from the CCU are synchronized with
the video signal delay.
• It takes time to stabilize video signal
transmission between the camera
and CCU after the system is turned
on. This is not a malfunction.
About Triax Transmission
Distance
The longest and shortest transmission
distance for triax connection is shown in
the following table. However,
transmission distance can vary
depending on conditions such as cable
degradation, etc.
Possible transmission range when
using a triax cable with an attenuation
characteristic of 3.8 dB to 45.6 dB at
