Sony PXW-X180 Features
Three 1/3-inch type Exmor™ CMOS Full HD sensors for a wide range of shooting conditions
The PXW-X180 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 zoom lens with three independent rings with end-stop and large focal length
The PXWX180 is equipped with a G Series fixed 25x 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.
High quality XAVC Intra and XAVC Log GOP recordings
The PXW X180 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
frames – 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 a
dopts 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.
Switchable recordings for greater flexibility
As well as shooting at XAVC HD, MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps and MPEG HD 420 35 Mbps, the camcorder
also supports DVCAM at 25 Mbps in MXF file format and AVCHD in MTS file format, which is compatible
with NXCAM camcorders. MPEG HD 422 gives a high quality image with more detailed colour
reproduction, as well as being ideal for chromakeying. It is also compatible with other XDCAM HD 422 and
NXCAM camcorders, including the PMW-500, the PMW-200, HXR-NX3/VG1 and many others,
which streamlines workflow and reduces time in the edit. High-quality MPEG HD422 50 Mbps is fully
compliant with the latest EBU recommendations for long-form broadcast production and is widely accepted
in broadcasting stations and production houses. This recording capability makes the PXW-X180 ideal for
a wide range of different applications, including newsgathering and documentary production.
