PXW-X160
Three 1/3-inch type Exmor™ CMOS Full HD sensor XDCAM camcorder with 25x zoom lens and XAVC
recordings
Overview
Full HD XAVC Intra and XAVC Long GOP recordings and MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps offer budget savings and workflow
flexibility for broadcast and professional applications
The PXW-X160 three 1/3-inch type Exmor™ CMOS sensors camcorder records Full HD XAVC Intra and XAVC Long
GOP, as well as MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps MPEG HD 420 35 Mbps, AVCHD and DV, making it ideal for a wide range of
applications from education/videography to broadcast. As the successor of HVR-Z7 and HXR-NX5, the PXW-X160
has a lot of attractive features, including dual SxS memory card slots, a G Series fixed 25x HD zoom lens with 26mm
wide angle and variable ND filter, that provides four conventional mechanical 4 ND filter positions or a linear switch
dial for more control in changing light conditions.
•
Three 1/3-inch type Exmor™ CMOS Full HD sensors
High resolution, high sensitivity, low noise, and wide dynamic range for enhanced shooting under severe
lighting conditions and more creative freedom.
•
G Series fixed 25x professional HD zoom lens
26mm wide angle zoom with three independent rings with end-stop and large focal length.
•
High quality XAVC Intra and XAVC Long GOP recordings on SxS memory cards
Supports XAVC Intra and Long GOP codecs, as well as MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps, the widely-accepted
broadcast standard compliant with the latest EBU recommendations. The PXW-X160 also records in MPEG
HD 420 35 Mbps, AVCHD and DV, offering flexibility and budget savings on recording media.
•
Dual ND filter control mechanism for more flexibility
The PXW-X160 is equipped with a variable ND Filter function. Users can chose either four conventional
PXW-X160
1
mechanical ND filter positions or the linear control dial, allowing you to quickly and smoothly adapt to
different conditions of shooting.

Features
•
Three 1/3-inch type Exmor™ CMOS Full HD sensors for a wide range of shooting conditions
The PXW-X160 incorporates three 1/3-inch type Full-HD Exmor™ CMOS sensors to achieve high resolution,
high sensitivity, low noise, and wide dynamic range. The sensor has 2 million effective pixels and achieves full
HD 1920 x 1080 shooting without pixel interpolation, enhancing shooting under severe lighting conditions
and providing more freedom of creative expression.
•
25x professional HD zoom lens with three independent rings with end-stop and large focal length
The PXW-X160 is equipped with a G Series fixed 25x zoom lens with 26mm wide-angle. Due to a quick electric
zoom function, the change of shooting from wide-angle to tele-angle can be made quickly. The lens has
three independent control rings with end-stop, which means focus, zoom and iris can be manually
controlled, making for better and faster adjustment.
•
High quality XAVC Intra and XAVC Log GOP recordings
The PXW-X160 supports not only MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps in MXF (Material eXchange Format), which is widely
accepted by major broadcasters worldwide, but also XAVC Intra and XAVC Long GOP codecs. XAVC
technology is based on the H.264 standard, which provides an exceptional performance compression
technology. XAVC Intra (frame) compression means that every frame is encoded independent of the other
frames – providing a better quality picture, without compromises. With a Long GOP codec, only certain
frames are encoded individually. This allows the codec to squeeze the video into a much smaller bitrate
than Intra technology. The main benefit is faster ingest and editing. XAVC Long GOP files also require less
storage space than XAVC Intra files, providing budget savings on recording media. The XAVC codec
adopts 10 bit sampling for high definition recording with rich tonal expression. The bite rate of XAVC
recording is 111 or 112 Mbps at 1080/59.94i or 50i and 89, or 112 Mbps at 1080/23.98P or 25p. The high bit rate
gives a better quality picture.
•
Switchable recordings for greater flexibility
As well as shooting at XAVC HD, MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps and MPEG HD 420 35 Mbps, the camcorder also
supports DVCAM at 25 Mbps in MXF file format and AVCHD in MTS file format, which is compatible with
NXCAM camcorders. MPEG HD 422 gives a high quality image with more detailed colour reproduction, as
well as being ideal for chromakeying. It is also compatible with other XDCAM HD 422 and NXCAM
camcorders, including the PMW-500, the PMW-200, HXR-NX3/VG1 and many others, which streamlines
workflow and reduces time in the edit. High-quality MPEG HD422 50 Mbps is fully compliant with the latest EBU
recommendations for long-form broadcast production and is widely accepted in broadcasting stations and
production houses. This recording capability makes the PXW-X160 ideal for a wide range of different
applications, including newsgathering and documentary production.
•
Dual SxS media slots, “Simul” or “Relay” recording, and independent record control
The PXW-X160 is equipped with two SxS memory card slots. The camcorder is compatible with SxS PRO+ and
SxS-1 memory cards, XQD, SDXC and SDHC cards can be also used with an appropriate card adaptor. Two
media slots can record in either “Simul” or “Relay” mode. “Simul” mode permits simultaneous recording to
two memory cards, while “Relay” mode automatically switches recording from the first to the second
memory card when the first is full. The user can set up the two Start/Stop buttons on the PXW-X160, one on
the grip and one on the camcorder body, to independently start and stop recording on different memory
cards while recording in Simul mode.
•
Variable dual ND filter control mechanism
The PXW-X160 is equipped with a variable ND Filter function, allowing you to choose either four conventional
mechanical ND filter positions or the linear control dial. The optical filter changes the density electrically,
allowing the light amount to be reduced more conveniently. The density can be changed gradually and
fluidly. Different from conventional optical ND filters, the ND filter on the PXW-X160 can be controlled from
PXW-X160
3
1/4ND to 1/128ND linearly. By choosing the density value properly, the iris control has more flexibility.
•
Multi Interface Shoe (MI Shoe) for flexible connection without XLR cable
The PXW-X160 is equipped with a Multi Interface Shoe (MI Shoe) that has an electric interface in its
mechanical attachment allowing the camcorder to communicate with an attached accessory. Accessories
attached to the MI Shoe can be controlled by the camcorder. Using an MI Shoe connection, the audio
signal from a UWP-D11 or UWP-D12 wireless microphone package can be input from the wireless
microphone receiver to the PXW-X160 without an XLR cable. The power can be supplied from the PXW-X160
to the receiver and a battery is not required for the receiver operation. So, for example, if the HVL-LBPC
video light is attached to the MI Shoe, video light power can be switched on and off from the camcorder.
•
Viewfinder includes amazing OLED technology
This 0.5-inch OLED viewfinder has the incredible clarity of 1024 x 768 High Definition, plus superb OLED
brightness, contrast and response. The high resolution of the viewfinder allows better precision of manual
focus operations and eliminates any colour-breaking phenomenon.
•
Wide choice of connections
The camcorder offers numerous connections to suit the broadcast workflow, including 3G HD-SDI, HDMI®,
USB, composite output, timecode input/output and genlock input. The 3G-SDI connector is able to output
the 1080/59.94P or 50P signal. Down-conversion output from HD to SD is also possible. Simultaneous output
from both SDI and HDMI is possible. The Rec Trigger signal can be sent through SDI and HDMI to link an
external recording device.
•
Lens Remote (LANC)
The PXW-X160 has a LANC interface. Using a LANC remote controller such as the RM-1BP and the VCTPG11RMB, the focus, zoom, rec start/stop and rec review can be controlled remotely.
