Introduction
Debut of the First NXCAM Camcorder HXR-NX5U
– Heralding New Standards in Contents Creation
The new HXR-NX5U camcorder is the first product of the NXCAM generation from Sony, and
a new category of tapeless memory camcorder, providing an ideal balance of power and
performance in the digital age.
Utilizing the revolutionary AVCHD format, this camcorder offers long duration recording – with
dual memory slots – on affordable consumer memory cards. As it facilitates a totally IT-based
workflow, the HXR-NX5U has the potential to profoundly change the way content is created.
Simultaneous hybrid recording is available in HD(High Definition) and SD(Standard Definition)
formats using an optional HXR-FMU128 memory unit.
In any format, breathtaking picture quality is assured with proven features from Sony such as
a state-of-the-art "G Lens" and three Exmor CMOS sensors with a ClearVid array. Professionals
around the world expect this standard of picture quality from Sony…and accept nothing less.

Main Features
Format
G Lens
"G Lens", the lens featured in other successful Sony camcorders,
already enjoys an excellent industry reputation. In the HXR-NX5U,
this sophisticated lens is optimized to complement the camcorder’s
advanced image sensor and image-processing technology.
Three "Exmor" CMOS sensors with a ClearVid array comprise
a state-of-the-art sensor system from Sony which realizes high
resolution, high sensitivity, a wide dynamic range, and excellent
color reproduction, regardless of the codec.

Memory Recording and HYBRID
Memory recording on affordable consumer memory cards offers
workflow efficiency at both the shooting and editing stages.
Combined with hybrid recording, using an optional HXR-FMU128,
the user achieves a totally IT-based workflow, with the added
bonus of instant data backup.

GPS
A built-in global positioning system (GPS) locator allows satellite
navigation data to be recorded directly onto footage for
reference or posting on popular internet mapping systems.
GPS data can be invaluable when searching for footage or to
provide evidence of where and when footage was recorded.
Active SteadyShot
Active SteadyShot is a new, enhanced image stabilization
system that provides a powerful shake-reduction capability,
vital for handheld usage. Additional stabilization is provided by
the increased optical lens coverage area and by improved
detection with state-of-the-art compensation algorithms.
The revolutionar y AVCHD recording format, which utilizes
the MPEG-4, AVC/H.264 video codec, allows users to record
HD video footage onto random access media. Its intelligent
and sophisticated algorithm makes AVCHD a highly efficient
compression format ideal for memory recording and IT-based
editing.

Advanced Camera Features
Sony-exclusive
High-performance “G Lens”
The "G Lens" provides great picture quality and versatility with a wide angle
of 29.5 mm (equivalent to 35 mm film) and a 20x high quality zoom. Two ED
(extra-low dispersion) glass elements reduce chromatic aberrations caused
by differences in light refraction to minimize color fringing. The advanced
10-group, 15-element lens structure also includes a compound aspheric lens
for images that are crisp and clear, even when shooting videos at a high
zooming ratio.

color reproduction. The quality of this imaging system has earned an excellent
reputation in the industry, and is of course fully realized in the new HXR-NX5U.

Cutting-edge Technologies
Location Simplification with
Cutting-edge GPS Technology
The HXR-NX5U is the world’s first AVCHD professional camcorder with an
internal GPS. This important new feature enables users to find the same shooting
location when, for example, they need to revisit a location for extra shots that
must match existing footage. GPS data is embedded in AVCHD video data
files. Mapping data can be created using bundled Content Management
Utility software. Also GPS data can be extracted from video files, using
Content Management Utility software, in a commonly used latitude/longitude
NMEA data format. This GPS information can be used in several applications.

Shoot and Walk with the New
Active SteadyShot
A new feature of the HXR-NX5U is Active SteadyShot. This useful feature
effectively reduces hand-held camera shake. The improvement is particularly
noticeable when using wide-angle framing. It is an essential feature when
holding the camcorder by hand, and especially for projects that are
recorded mainly in the field. It is also ideal when the subject is moving and
must be followed, for example in news gathering or at weddings. Shooting
from inside a moving vehicle is another useful application for the Active
SteadyShot feature. It significantly reduces the need for external stabilization
systems. Improved stabilization allows the user to concentrate more on
composition and shot transition, rather than worry about how to stabilize the
camera. Depending on the shooting environment, users can select normal
SteadyShot or Active SteadyShot for hand-held applications. When not in use,
the stabilization feature can be easily switched off.

between the dual memory slots. When using two, 32-GB memory
cards, six hours of continuous HD footage can be recorded. If
a longer continuous recording time is required, the user simply

Three Major Advantages of Memory Recording
1. Easy Viewing of Recorded Footage
The major benefit of this memory recording system is its instant search

much happier and far more efficient.

2. Fast Ingestion to Computer
extending continuous recording for a sufficiently long time.
Users can simply pop out a memory card and plug it into any
computer’s memory card reader slot (or use a USB2.0-type memory
card reader) to upload files. This is likely to take less time than the
actual length of recorded footage, so more time can be spent
shooting. Users are secure in the knowledge that editing deadlines
will be met, thanks to this efficient new approach to digital video
production.
*The uploading time will depend on the computer's specification
3. Easy Playback
Affordable consumer memory media are already used in many
consumer electronic devices, and more are to come. Recorded
footage can be instantly played back using these devices.

Simple Data Transfer and Input
Simple connection to a computer via a USB slot means there’s no
need for an external power supply. Once the HXR-NX5U is linked
to a PC via a USB2.0 cable, files can be
uploaded directly. This allows fast file
transfer to popular NLE systems, and
saves valuable time.
*Notes on HXR-FMU128
- HXR-FMU128 formatted by a 60i (50i) camcorder cannot be used by a 50i (60i) camcorder.
- Rebooting of the camcorder is needed when HXR-FMU128 is attached while the
camcorder power is ON.

Recording Format
and Editing Workflow
The Revolutionary
AVCHD Format
AVCHD is an efficient data compression method which greatly reduces
memory requirements. The new format allows tapeless recording with high
image quality in a small file size. This is made possible by the revolutionary
MPEG4 AVC/H.264 codec. In addition, the AVCHD file format is spreading
rapidly into the market. Many consumer electronic devices already support
AVCHD playback, and there are more to come. Major NLE software already
supports AVCHD ingestion and editing. The market is starting to recognize
AVCHD as a standard file format for video.
Loss-less Audio Recording Capability
The audio recording format on HXR-NX5U can be selected from either
Dolby Digital stereo or Linear PCM stereo. LPCM audio recording provides
uncompressed audio quality. Customers who needs high quality audio, such
as in music videos will be able to acquire CD quality audio data.
MPEG-2 for SD(Standard Definition)
Recording Format
SD format recording is available in addition to HD format recording. The SD
recording format uses MPEG-2 which is the same compression codec as
standard DVD-VIDEO Discs. Customers who make delivery in DVD-VIDEOs will
be able to obtain video data in sufficient SD quality using this format.
