News Image
Sony has announced news that a new addition to its XDCAM Series is in development and is set to be made available this year. The new model has today been publicly previewed for the first time, with delegates able to see the camera at BroadcastAsia, taking place in Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.

The new XDCAM camcorder features a 20M pixel 1.0-type Exmor R CMOS Sensor and the ability to record in XAVC Long GOP, enabling 422 10-bit sampling for HD recording with rich tonal expression. The camcorder is aimed at supporting broadcasters and AV professionals as they modernise workflows with a focus on increased data transfer speeds.
The new camcorder is to become Sony's most compact XAVC-capable XDCAM camera to date, well suited to field operations for a broad range of professional applications.
"Following the recent announcements of the PXW-X180 and the PXW-X160 camcorders, we're excited to see the momentum which exists across the industry in adopting the XAVC recording format," said Robbie Fleming, Product Marketing Manager, at Sony Professional Solutions Europe. "This new compact addition to the XDCAM line-up will bring the benefits of XAVC to an even broader audience, whether it's in education, videography or news and broadcast production."
