Three 2/3-inch type PowerHAD FX Full HD CCD sensors offer high sensitivity and improved S/N ratio
The PXW-X500 is equipped with three 2/3-inch type Full HD CCD sensors. Based on the latest on-chip lens structure, this type of CCD offers a high sensitivity of F12 at 50i (F11 at 60i) and improved S/N ratio of 60 dB (with NS on) with a typical CCD's characteristics of no jello effects and no flashband symptom. This new CCS sensors can work in 50p/60p system operation at 1080x1920, and realize the high frame rate recording upto 120psf.
High quality XAVC Intra and XAVC Log GOP recordings
The PXW-X500 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 frame and XAVC Long GOP codecs. The camera records a wide variety of frame rates including 1080 XAVC Intra frame 59.94p*, 50p*, 59.94i, 50i, 23.97p, 25p and 23.98p, as well as 1080 XAVC Long GOP 59.94p, 50p, 59.94i, 29.97p, 25p and 23.98p. 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 and simpler handling in the post process, 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.
* Requires firmware version 4.0.
Powerful choice of multi codec 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 MPEG SStP 422 Lite (HDCAM SR), as well as SD MPEG IMX and DVCAM at 25 Mbps in MXF file format. 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-X500 ideal for a wide range of different applications, including newsgathering and documentary production.
Direct open workflows with Avid DNxHD codec and Apple ProRes codec recording options (Not Included)
In addition to MPEG SStP, XAVC, MPEG codes, recording directly in Apple ProRes codec and Avid DNxHD codec are available by license key options.* The DNxHD or ProRes files can stored in the easy-to-manage MXF OP-1a or Quicktime wrapper, and recorded onboard to Sony’s SxS PRO+, SxS-1, or XQD G/S Series memory card.
