  • Dual-format (1080/50i/59.94i and 720/50P/59.94P) as standard (Multi-format upgrade option).
  • New designed DSP LSI with ALAC-2 function automatically compensates for lens chromatic aberration.
  • Long-distance signal transmission capability up to 2,000 meters with the HDCU-1700 Camera Control Unit.
  • Fully compatible with HDC-2000/1000 Series cameras and inherits their very wide choice of peripherals such as HDVF, RCP, HDLA.
  • State-of-the-art sensor 2/3-inch CCD sensor & 16bit A/D converter provides incomparable picture quality with excellent S/N Ratio, better low light and highlights handling.

Superb Image Quality with Cutting-Edge Technologies
With three high resolution 2/3-inch Power HAD FX CCD image sensors, and the advanced digital signal processor (DSP) LSI provides superior S/N levels as well as better functionality. Also, a 16-bit A/D converter produces optimal visual imagery and enhanced black reproduction.

Adaptive Matrix Function
With the Adaptive Matrix function, images with well-balanced details can be reproduced even in strong monochromatic light conditions, such as at stage events.

Auto Lens Chromatic Aberration Compensation (ALAC-2)
Alongside the advanced DSP LSI, the ALAC-2 function automatically compensates for lens chromatic aberration*. ALAC-2 works in both horizontal and vertical directions. (*Lenses need to be corresponded to ALAC feature.)

Optional Accessories Expand Usage
There are many optional accessories for the HDC-1700, including the HKC-DF20 Dual Optical Filter Unit and HZC-PSF20 Signal Format Software (1080/23.98p, 24p, 25p, 29.97p). These options support a range of different shooting scenes and requirements.

Spirit Level
With the MEMS-Acceleration Sensor, the horizontal level can be displayed on the viewfinder screen, which helps particularly with wide-angle shooting.

HDLA Large Lens Adaptor Maximises Operability
HDLA-1500, HDLA-1505, and HDLA-1507 adaptors maximise the operability of the HDC-1700. These optional adapters provide flexibility when applications require a large studio lens, and camera operators want to maintain hard camera control. They facilitate simple connectivity without time-consuming wiring and adjustments.

1.5 Gbps Optical Fibre Transmission
The HDC-1700 is capable of long-distance signal transmission up to 2,000 metres with the HDCU-1700 Camera Control Unit (CCU)*. (*The HDC-1700 is only used in combination with the HDCU-1700.)

HDCU-1700 Camera Control Unit (CCU)
The HDC-1700 can be configured with the HDCU-1700 dedicated Camera Control Unit (CCU), which is a 19-inch half-rack size portable CCU for fibre cable connection. The HDCU-1700 CCU can control camera menu settings and display fibre condition on the front panel. It has an expansion slot for the four HD/SD SDI outputs board; and the option board slot is used for HKCU option cards to expand the CCUs output capability to include VBS out, PIX out, WFM out, and component video out.
