3G Digital Optical Transfer
HDC-2000 supports standard 3G digital optical transfer via optical fiber cable between the camera and camera control unit.

2× Slow Motion Recording
1080/50i (×2)-59.94i (×2) and 720/50P (×2)-59.94P (×2) 2× slow-motion recording are supported standard on HDC-2000.

Multi-Matrix and Adaptive Matrix
In addition to the 6-axis matrix function, the camera has a multi-matrix function that permits to adjust the hue and chroma for colour components in 16-axis directions independently.

Skin-Tone Detail
This function allows adjustment (emphasis or suppression) of the detail level for a specific hue or chroma area in the image, such as human skin tones.

Selection of Multiple Gamma Tables
Seven types of standard and four types of hyper gamma table are featured. The hyper gamma values enable cinema-like image creation with wide dynamic range.

Knee Saturation
Hue and chroma in highlighted areas can be adjusted to reproduce natural human skin tones under strong lighting.

Low Key Saturation
Saturation in low-key zones can be compensated.

Position-Adjustable Shoulder Pad
The position of the shoulder pad can be adjusted for stable shooting according to the build of the camera operator.

Auto Lens Aberration Compensation
The Auto Lens H and V Aberration Compensation (ALAC) function automatically reduces chromatic aberration of magnification when a lens that supports auto aberration compensation is attached.

Focus Assist Functions
Various functions are provided for the VF detail signal, which can be added only on images on the viewfinder screen, in order to facilitate focusing, as follows: - Colouring the VF detail signal- Thickening the VF detail signal - Automatically compensating for the VF detail level according to zoom position - Focus assist indicator. The focusing level indicator in the viewfinder provides a guide for focusing. The best focus setting can be easily obtained.

Function for Prevention of Electrical Shock
When the power connection is unsafe, this shuts off the power supply from the connected Camera Control Unit.

Versatile Detail Control Functions
A skin-tone detail function/Natural skin detail function allows control (emphasis or suppression) of the detail level for specific hues or chroma areas in the image by creating a detail gate signal from colour components of your specified hue, such as skin tones. The detail levels of three kinds of hues can be adjusted independently at the same time.

User-Friendly Operation
Featuring a stylish exterior with a low overall height, the viewfinder’s position is kept as low as possible, bringing it closer to the optical axis of the lens. The camera also has a switch to which various functions can be assigned on the rear panel. You can activate your desired function, such as electronic colour-temperature conversion, instantly when shooting by assigning it to the switch in advance.

Standard 3G Optical Digital Transmission Unit
3G optical digital transmission of signals between the camera and camera control unit (CCU) is included and allows the following kinds of video signal transmission and system configurations: 

  • 1080/50P-60P progressive video signal transmission
  • Transmission of 2Å~ speed recording signals such as 1080/100i-119.88i for production of slow-motion video
  • Transmission of HD prompter, HD TRUNK, and network TRUNK signals that utilize empty bands during 1080/50i-60i and 720/50P-60P operation
  • Dual camera system for transmitting video signals from a second HD camera to two CCUs using just one optical fibre/multi-cable
  • Sub-camera system for transmitting video signals from both an HDC2000 and another sub-camera—such as the HDCP1— using just one optical fibre/multi-cable and outputting their signals from one CCU
