PDW-850 (without optical)

PDW-850

New product

The reference acquisition tool for broadcast production is lighter, with less power requirements, and perfect for easy field operations and affordable live production

The PDW-850 is equipped with the latest Power HAD FX CCD sensors and records HD and SD formats including MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps on to ready-to-archive and robust Professional Disc media with a high sensitivity of F12 at 50i and an excellent signal-to-noise ratio of 62dB. The PDW-850 features a high quality colour QHD 960 x 540 LCD side monitor, while also providing an HDVF interface to allow the latest optional colour and monochrome viewfinders to be attached. The ergonomically well balanced camcorder now fully supports the CBK-WA100 wireless adapter, enabling proxy recording and proxy/high resolution content transfer via Wi-Fi/3G/4G/LTE, as well as Planning Metadata management (with a future upgrade). Ethernet, USB interfaces and GPS are included. The camcorder weighs only 4.2 kg (body only), lighter than the PDW-700, and has lower power consumption compared to its predecessors. The PDW-850 can also be configured in a live production system by docking the CA-FB70 fibre adapter or CA-TX70 digital triax adapter CA-TX70 to the standard 50-pin interface.
