SONY PXW-X160

Ideal for professional broadcast, documentary or live event video applications, the PXW-X160 XDCAM HD422 camcorder offers a 25x HD zoom lens, three 1/3"-type Exmor CMOS sensors for high resolution, low noise and wide dynamic range, and a variable Neutral Density filter which provides more flexibility in density control and a broader range of shooting techniques

The camcorder has a new type of Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe where compatible accessories attached to the MI shoe can be controlled from the PXW-X160. The new HVL-LBPC video LED light can be attached which enables controlling the light ON and OFF syncing with recording START and STOP. Also, if an optional UWP-D wireless microphone receiver is connected with use of the adapter, power supply and cable-free audio signal input are possible, minimizing the need for extra batteries and removing the need for additional cabling.

HIGHLIGHTS
  • Three 1/3"-type Full HD Exmor CMOS sensors
  • Sony G Lens with 25x Optical Zoom.
  • Variable ND filter manually control mechanism
  • Auto ND Filter enables to adjust the density of the variable ND filter automatically.
  • High quality XAVC Intra and XAVC Log GOP recordings
  • 59.94p / 50p recording at Full HD 1920 x 180
  • Switchable recordings for MPEG-2 HD422, AVCHD, and DVCAM
  • Dual SxS media slot for simultaneous recording, relay recording, and independent recording control.
  • Multi Interface Hot-Shoe (MI Shoe) for flexible connection
  • OLED color viewfinder
  • 3G HD-SDI and HDMI supports up to 60p full HD uncompressed signal
  • Remote control (partialy compatible with LANC)

    Features Benefits:
    Three 1/3-inch type Exmor CMOS Full HD sensors for a wide range of shooting conditions The PXW-X160 incorporates three 1/3-inch type Full-HD Exmor CMOS sensors to achieve high resolution, high sensitivity, low noise, and wide dynamic range. The sensor has 2 million effective pixels and achieves full HD 1920 x 1080 shooting without pixel interpolation, enhancing shooting under severe lighting conditions and providing more freedom of creative expression.
    25x professional HD optical zoom lens with three independent rings with end-stop and large focal length The PXW-X160 is equipped with a G Series fixed 25x optical zoom lens with 26mm wide-angle. Due to a quick electric zoom function, the change of shooting from wide-angle to tele-angle can be made quickly. The lens has three independent control rings with end-stop, which means focus, zoom and iris can be manually controlled, making for better and faster adjustment.
    Variable ND filter with both auto and manual control mechanism The PXW-X180 is equipped with a variable ND Filter function, allowing you to choose either four conventional mechanical ND filter positions or the linear control dial, or automatically adjust the proper level of density(*1). The optical filter changes the density electrically, allowing the light amount to be reduced more conveniently. The density can be changed gradually and fluidly. Different from conventional optical ND filters, the ND filter on the PXW-X180 can be controlled from 1/4ND to 1/128ND linearly. By choosing the density value properly, the iris control has more flexibility.

    (*1) A firmware version 3.00 or later is required to activate this function.
    High quality XAVC Intra and XAVC Log GOP recordings The PXW-X160 supports not only MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps in MXF (Material eXchange Format), which is widely accepted by major broadcasters worldwide, but also XAVC Intra and XAVC Long GOP codecs. XAVC technology is based on the H.264 standard, which provides an exceptional performance compression technology. XAVC Intra (frame) compression means that every frame is encoded independent of the other framesz providing a better quality picture, without compromises. With a Long GOP codec, only certain frames are encoded individually. This allows the codec to squeeze the video into a much smaller bitrate than Intra technology. The main benefit is faster ingest and editing. XAVC Long GOP files also require less storage space than XAVC Intra files, providing budget savings on recording media. The XAVC codec adopts 10 bit sampling for high definition recording with rich tonal expression. The bite rate of XAVC recording is 111 or 112 Mbps at 1080/59.94i or 50i and 89, or 112 Mbps at 1080/23.98P or 25p. The high bit rate gives a better quality picture.
    Dual SxS media slots, “Simultaneous” or “Relay” recording, and independent record control The PXW-X160 is equipped with two SxS memory card slots. The camcorder is compatible with SxS PRO+ and SxS-1(*2) memory cards. XQD card can also be used with the adaptor QDA-EX1. Two media slots can record in either “Simultaneous” or “Relay” mode. “Simultaneous” mode permits simultaneous recording to two memory cards, while “Relay” mode automatically switches recording from the first to the second memory card when the first is full. The user can set up the two Start/Stop buttons on the PXW-X160, one on the grip and one on the camcorder body, to independently start and stop recording on different memory cards while recording in Simultaneous mode.

    (*2) Some selected recording mode is not supported.
    OLED Viewfinder and 3.5” type LCD Panel This 0.5" type OLED viewfinder has the incredible clarity of 1024 x 768 pixels, plus superb OLED brightness, contrast and response. The high resolution of the viewfinder allows better precision of manual focus operations and eliminates any colour-breaking phenomenon. The 3.5” type QHD LCD panel provides easy viewing in a wide range of lightning conditions.
    Wide choice of connections The camcorder offers numerous connections to suit the broadcast workflow, including 3G HD-SDI, HDMI, USB, composite output, timecode input/output and genlock input. The 3G-SDI connector is able to output the 1080/59.94P or 50P signal. Down-conversion output from HD to SD is also possible. Simultaneous output from both SDI and HDMI is possible. The recording trigger signal can be sent through SDI and HDMI to link an external recording device.
    Multi Interface Shoe (MI Shoe) for flexible connection without XLR cable The PXW-X160 is equipped with a Multi Interface Shoe (MI Shoe) that has an electric interface in its mechanical attachment allowing the camcorder to communicate with an attached accessory. For example, the audio signal from a UWP-D11 or UWP-D12 wireless microphone package can be input from the wireless microphone receiver to the PXW-X160 without an XLR cable. The power can be supplied from the PXW-X160 to the receiver and a battery is not required for the receiver operation.
