Sony: Leading with 1080 HDV
In 2003, Sony in conjunction with JVC,
Canon and Sharp collected their efforts
to develop a system that would finally
allow both professionals and consumers
access to true High Definition acquisition
at Standard Definition prices. Sony’s
first professional HDV camcorder, the
HVRZ1U, entered the market as the first
1080i HDV camcorder available and
changed the way the world looked at
High Definition forever. Starin assembled
this HDV guide to make you aware of the
significant advantages of Sony’s HDV
equipment.
What is “HDV”?
• HDV is a video format for the
user, regardless of their shooting
environment or workflow, recording
High Definition Video on standard DV
tape, hard drive or compact flash.
• HDV is a cost-effective step up to
the benefits of HD for videographers,
independent film-makers, corporate
and other professional users.
• HDV allows users to begin the move
to HD as their workflow allows.
• HDV offers easy connectivity via
i.LINK/Firewire, and fits perfectly in
existing DV based Non Linear Editing
(NLE) systems available from Sony
and other vendors.
• HDV uses industry standard MPEG 2
coding at a data rate of 25 Mb/s, the
same rate as DV and DVCAM.

Interchangeable Lens System
Various video lenses can be attached to the HVR-S270U and HVR-Z7U, which are both equipped
with a universal standard 1/3-inch bayonet mount mechanism for quick changing of lenses.
Interchangable Lens A high-quality, multi-purpose Carl Zeiss lens for HD video
comes as standard with the HVR-Z7U. Stunning resolution and contrast is
achieved thanks to the Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar™ T* coating, which suppresses
unwanted reflections. A specially designed wide-angle lens is also available as an
option, to suit a diverse range of shooting requirements.
Natural-touch Lens Operation
Focus The newly designed focus ring offers two types of manual focus, plus an
auto focus mode that can be easily switched by sliding the focus ring forward
or backward. When the focus ring is in the front position, the lens works in the
same way as the HVR-Z1U, HVR-V1U and DSR-PD170. In this case, either
manual or auto focus mode can be selected by the assignable button on the
lens. On the other hand, when the focus ring is set to the rear position, the focus
ring has a physical stop at infinity and works in the same way as a professional
interchangeable lens, with fixed-focus-position and distance indicators.
Zoom Fast, intuitive manual-zoom response is provided by an internal gearwheel mechanism that provides accurate
zoom positioning. A high-quality servo-motor provides the smooth zooming performance that industry professionals
have come to rely on.
Iris The iris ring encircles the lens barrel. Manual iris adjustment is possible
with an ENG-type ring system that allows fine exposure control for challenging
lighting situations
Wide Range of Lenses The flexible bayonet lens attachment system
allows you to use a wide range of lenses. Standard 1/3-inch HD
video lenses, from manufacturers such as Fujinon and Canon, can
be attached directly to the HVR-Z7U. If you’d like to attach a 2/3-inch
or 1/2-inch HD video lens, it is possible to do so by adding a standard
lens adaptor from the lens manufacturer. The HVR-Z7U has12-pin
lens connectors allowing compatibility with professional ENG lenses.
This feature is very useful not only for those who already have these
professional HD video lenses, but also for those who prefer to use HD
digital cinema lenses for their unique contrast, color, and atmosphere.
Lens Compatibility With a special adaptor from Sony, it is also
possible to use the
lens series designed for Sony Digital SLR still
cameras. By using
lenses in various configurations, creative effects
can be achieved. This pproach is ideal for filmmakers on a budget or
those who already own lenses.

well as tapeless recording capability through an optional CompactFlash™ adapter.
Enhanced Image Capture Sony’s ClearVid™ 1/3-inch CMOS sensor chips are designed to provide high sensitivity, deep
resolution, highspeed reading, low noise and a wider dynamic range. The CMOS sensors capture full HD 1920 x 1080
resolution, resulting in better picture quality when recorded onto miniDV tape in the HDV format (1440 pixels x 1080 lines).
The Exmor™ technology features a unique column-parallel analog-to-digital conversion technique and dual noise
canceling, resulting in digital signals with extremely low noise. The technologies combine to allow the new camcorders to
perform significantly better in low-light environments with sensitivity of 1.5 lux.
XtraFine LCD™ (3.2-inch, 921,000 dots) and XtraFine electronic viewfinder (0.45-inch, 1,227,000 dots (852 x 3 [RGB] x
480)) for high resolution and high-contrast images with remarkable color reproduction are used.
Ideal For Independent Cinematographers Feature progressive scan at 1080/24p and 30p, the results
are video productions with a film-like look. Using a 2:3 pull down, the 24P scanned image is converted to 60i
for easy editing with user’s existing software applications. CinemaTone Gamma™ and CinemaTone Color™ settings
complement the 24P capabilities.
Equipped with a refined level of optical performance, there is a Sony G lens with a 29.5mm wide-end viewing angle,
extra-low dispersion glass and 20x optical zoom. The fixed lens is optimized to perfectly complement the camcorder’s
advanced image sensor and image-processing technology.
Define your own manual settings for iris, gain, white balance, shutter speed and focus for increased creativity and
control. Use of any of the three manual rings for adjustments to zoom, focus and iris provides even more flexibility.

What is HDV?
Sony developed the HDV2 format which features 1,080 effective scanning lines, using the
interlaced scanning system, and 1,440 horizontal pixels. By using industry standard MPEG2 compression (MP@H-14 for video), High Definition image data is processed into an 8 bit,
4:2:0 data stream at a data rate of 25 Mb/s. The HDV standard uses MPEG-1 Audio Layer
II as an audio compression format at a sample rate of 48kHz and 16 bit resolution. The
other HDV standard, (HDV1) is 1280 x 720 at 30 progressive frames / sec, which sacrifices
overall static resolution to increase dynamic resolution.
Sony has long been the leader in 1080i production systems through their HDCAM and new
HDCAM SR equipment. HDCAM has been used for feature film production and episodic TV
programming for years, and is a world standard for high end production. Operating at a data
rate of over 140 Mb/s, HDCAM certainly puts a lot more data on tape than HDV, but that
doesn’t mean that there is a huge difference in recorded image quality. HDV, at 25 Mb/s,
uses an efficient interframe MPEG 2 coding process that preserves high image quality by
reducing the redundant or unchanging image data from frame to frame.
While it seems that 25 Mb/s is a low rate for High Definition video, keep in mind that terrestrial
DTV HD broadcast is running at a maximum of 19 Mb/s. Satellite and cable HD channels
and the proposed HD-DVD standards all use data rates between 6 and 20 Mb/s. The old
mindset that compression is always a bad thing, or that less compression always means
higher quality simply isn’t true.
Since their sensational debut in 2004, Sony HDV products adopting the HDV 1080i
specification have provided and continue to provide 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.
Select camcorders offer 1080/24p and 30p progressive scanning, in addition to 60i interlaced.
The images captured at 24p are recorded on tape at a 60i field rate through means of 2-3
pull-down. Using a compatible nonlinear editor, this 2-3 sequence is recognized, allowing
precise 24p editing of the HDV material. The 2-3 pull-down approach easily integrate into
existing HDV systems operating in 60i mode.
