Sony PXW-X200 Features
Three 1/2-inch type Exmor™ CMOS Full HD sensors offer superb picture quality
The PXW-X200 incorporates three 1/2-inch type Full-HD Exmor™ CMOS sensors to achieve high
resolution, high sensitivity, low noise, and wide dynamic range. With these image sensors, the PXW-X200
achieves a high sensitivity of F12 at 1080/59.94i and F13 at 1080/50i – essential levels for professionals
shooting under challenging lighting conditions.
17x professional HD zoom lens with three independent rings with end-stop and large focal length
The PXWX200 is equipped with a 17x Fujinon professional HD zoom lens able to zoom from 29.3mm to
499mm (35mm equivalent). The 1/2-inch type lens has three independent control rings with end-stop,
which allows manual control of focus, zoom and iris, making for better and faster adjustment.
High quality XAVC Intra and XAVC Log GOP recordings
The PXW X200 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
adopts 10-bit sampling for high definition recording with rich tonal expression.
