The Sony HVR-V1U HDV camcorder, the world's first 1080p24 HDV acquisition tool. The HVR-V1U camcorder, along with the optional companion HVR-DR60 HDV Hard Drive Recorder represents the latest addition to Sony's tremendously popular line of professional HDV products, & does NOT replace any of the existing camcorders.
The HVR-V1U camcorder provides affordable HD acquisition by offering true 1080p image capture in a small camcorder form factor. Three ClearVid CMOS Sensors, combined with Sony's 14-bit Enhanced Image Processor, create an exceptional camcorder capable of capturing images at 1080p24, 1080p30, & 1080 60i.
All video is processed at 1920x1080 at 60p in full 4:2: 2, for optimum picture quality. In the 1080 24p mode, the images are scanned at the full 1080 lines, & 2:3 pull down is added and recorded to the 60i HDV tape.
From SD to HD, & 24p to 60i, Sony's HVR-V1U & HVR-DR60 offer an extremely versatile, high-quality production package for video professionals. Combining affordable & reliable tape archiving with file-based, edit-friendly clip recording in the field, the HVR-V1U & HVR-DR60 come together to provide a truly practical solution for independent cinematographers, corporate producers, educational users, small-market broadcasters, & wedding videographers, to name just a few.
