Product Details

Overview
Sony HDC-3500 4K Portable System Camera with Three 2/3-inch 4K CMOS Sensors. A new benchmark in creative flexibility:
The HDC-3500 system camera brings new levels of image quality, portability and creative flexibility to live production environments. Enjoy premium 4K/HD/HDR picture quality – and anticipate tomorrow’s production needs while maintaining full compatibility with today’s workflows and system hardware.
Imaging power unleashed:
Capture premium pictures with the world’s first 2/3-inch 4K CMOS sensor with global shutter technology that eliminates the ‘jello effect’ and banding noise. This allows the HDC-3500 to capture pristine 4K images with exceptionally low noise (-62dB), impressive sensitivity (F10 at 1080/59.94p or F11 at 1080/50p) and high dynamic range, while achieving the ITU-R BT.2020 broadcast standard wide colour space. It’s teamed with a specially developed LSI Digital Signal Processor that fully realises the extraordinary imaging power of this new sensor.

Easy transmission change:

The HDC-3500 supports optical fibre transmission as standard, with a SMPTE-standard interface for connection with associated HDCU-3100/HDCU-2000 series Camera Control Units. It’s quick and easy to reconfigure the camera at any time for fibre, third-generation digital triax or wireless operation with a choice of optional outside panels.

Wider workflow options:

Support for Sony’s SR Live for HDR workflow allows simultaneous 4K HDR and HD SDR production by a single team – reducing hardware and personnel costs for multi-format productions. In addition, the HDC-3500 can be upgraded by the optional software licenses to add functions to capture progressive signals, progressive segmented frame (PsF) signals, or double-speed acquisition for exquisite slow motion.

The go anywhere camera:

Combining exceptional lightness and strength, the magnesium alloy body is complemented by carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) outside panels. 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.

Seamless integration:

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.

Smooth slow motion:

The HDC-3500 offers a double-speed acquisition function, transmitting high-quality Full HD images to the HDCU-3100 or HDCU-2500 Camera Control Unit (CCU).

Display camera number and tally:

Assigned camera number is indicated on the camera body by a graphical electronic paper display. Displayed information is updated automatically to reflect system changes. There’s also an LED tally lamp beside the camera number display.

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.

Servo controlled ND and CC filters:

Dual optical filter wheels for Neutral Density (ND) and Colour Correction (CC)* open up wider creative possibilities. Both filters can be controlled from a remote control panel, master setup unit, or directly from the camera head.

Network TRUNK:

Network TRUNK (via LAN port) allows high-speed data transmission between the camera and CCU at up to 1 Gbps to support configurability* with IP-based products and systems.* Camera operating in fibre configuration.
