Sony has launched the 4K-ready PXW-X70, the first compact XDCAM professional camcorder ever produced. Expanding the popular file-based XDCAM family to a new smaller form factor and lower price point, picture quality, speed of shooting and robust performance are combined into a package which is ideal for a wide range of applications from news gathering and documentary to events work.

The camcorder features a sensor more than eight times the size of conventional 1/3 single chip sensor, and features a 1.0 type Exmor R CMOS sensor with a resolution of 20 megapixels. The sensor, which is even larger than the Super 16mm film frame, delivers high resolution, low light performance, and more depth of field control.

The PXW-X70 also has the ability to record High Definition in XAVC Long GOP, enabling 422 10-bit sampling at 50 Mbit/s to support a broadcast-quality workflow.

Vivian Saldanha, business head - content creation, Sony Professional Solutions Middle East and Africa says:
“Over the past couple of years we’ve seen the broadcast industry embrace the picture quality benefits associated with large sensors; the one-inch sensor at the heart of the PXW-X70 sets a new standard for colour, depth and texture in a professional compact camcorder. Coupled with the ability to upgrade to 4K, this represents a multipurpose, future-proof option for customers looking for a tough camcorder which doesn’t compromise on image.”

The PXW-X70 is the first professional compact camcorder from Sony to include Wi-Fi-enabled control via smartphone or tablet. An upcoming release will also provide upgrades to record in 4K Ultra High Definition, with file transferring and live video streaming capabilities.
