About Sony HVR-S270

• The Sony HVR-S270U is an HDV camcorder designed for ENG applications, while still being highly cost-effective. Incorporating all the benefits of HDV technology, the camera can also take avantage of stardard-size DV tapes for increased run-times.

Additionally, the HVR-S270U can also record directly to compact flash cards, via the camera's supplied memory recording unit. Combined with Sony's entire family of HDV products, the HVR-S270U is a great camcorder for almost any production, including documentaries, news, low-budget movies, music videos and industrials.

HVR-S270U can switch between 1080p, 1080i in the HDV format, DVCAM and DV recording and can down-convert material from HD to SD and output the video signals through its i.LINK interface and other SD output connectors. The HVR-S270U is available with HD-SDI or SD-SDI connectivity and also supports embedded audio and timecode.

Sony HVR-S270 Features

  • ClearVID 3CMOS Technology: Sony's ClearVID sensors are positioned at a 45° angle. Since each pixel is positioned at this angle the result is far clearer diagonal lines. Images will appear crisper, without the apparent "jaggies" that often plague video signals
  • Record to Compact Flash: The camera comes with an attachable recording unit, allowing users to record HDV and DV to CompactFlash cards. With cards getting larger and larger in capacity, the ability to take advantage of tapeless workflow while still using cheap media is a welcome addition
  • High Definition on MiniDV Tapes with HDV: The HDV format, used in the HVR-S270U allows high definition recording on standard MiniDV tapes. This is accomplished by using the very popular MPEG-2 compression technique used in many applications, including DVDs and satellite television
  • 24p Capability: In 24p mode, images from the CMOS can be 2:3 pulldown-converted and recorded onto tape in the standard 60i HDV format. The tape can then be played back or edited using an ordinary HDV system. True 24p editing can be achieved by uploading 2:3 pulldown-converted images
  • HDMI Output: Many consumer products are adopting High Definition Media Interface (HDMI) connections for transmitting uncompressed digital HD video signals
  • High Definition LCD: When shooting HD footage, standard LCD screens can be very deceiving; what looked perfect amidst a full-day video shoot can sometimes prove very soft or out of focus while in post-production
