The HDC-3170 system camera brings new levels of creative flexibility and portability to live production environments. Enjoy premium HD pictures plus the versatility of digital triax transmission. Capture premium pictures with the world’s first 2/3-inch HD CMOS sensor with global shutter technology that eliminates the ‘jello effect’ and banding noise. This allows the HDC-3170 to capture pristine images with low noise and excellent sensitivity (F12 at 1080/59.94i or F13 at 1080/50i). The HDC-3170 can output 3G-SDI signals in a range of formats right up to 1080/50p. So you can benefit from maximum production convenience – and your viewers can enjoy premium picture quality.
The HDC-3170 supports the latest third generation digital triax-based camera/CCU transmission system. This can carry high-quality Full HD images over distances up to 1,800m (with 14.5mm diameter triax cable - maximum transmission distance varies with camera system configuration) while integrating smoothly into current triax infrastructures.
Broaden your creative possibilities and achieve exactly the look you want in any shooting situation. Low-key Saturation ensures rich, vibrant colours in low-light areas. Powerful gamma functions give absolute control over fine-tuning tonal values, contrast and detail.

The go anywhere camera
The magnesium alloy body of the HDC-3170 offers exceptional lightness and strength. Sure, stable handling is enhanced by the camera’s low centre of gravity, easily adjustable shoulder pad and widened hand grip area. Also ideal for handheld operation, HDC series studio cameras offer exceptional user ergonomics in a wide range of studio and field-based production environments.
Backwards compatibility with Sony’s industry-acclaimed HDC-2000 series system cameras simplifies smooth integration with your current live production infrastructures, including cameras and CCUs.
Servo controlled ND filter
An optical Neutral Density (ND) filter wheel opens up wider creative possibilities. The filter can be controlled from a remote control panel, master setup unit, or directly from the camera head.
Rich focus assist functions
The Viewfinder Detail function adds dedicated image-enhancing edge signals directly to the viewfinder, helping the operator to focus quickly and precisely in any shooting situation. It’s complemented by a Focus Assist Indicator and advanced Focus Position Meter function.
