Raising the standard in creative flexibility
The HDC-3100 system camera brings new levels of creative flexibility and portability to live production environments. Enjoy premium HD pictures plus the convenience of optical fiber transmission.
Capture premium pictures with the world’s first 2/3-inch CMOS sensor with global shutter technology that eliminates the “jello effect” and banding noise. This allows the HDC-3100 to capture pristine images with low noise and excellent sensitivity (F12 at 1080/59.94p or F13 at 1080/50p).
More format flexibility (4K/HD)
The HDC-3100 can output 3G-SDI signals in a range of formats right up to 1080/50p, with 4K available via the CCU’s 12G-SDI and Quad 3G-SDI interfaces. So you can benefit from maximum production convenience – and your viewers can enjoy premium picture quality.
Optical fiber transmission
The HDC-3100 supports optical fiber transmission as standard, with an SMPTE-standard interface for connection with associated HDCU-3100/HDCU-2000 series Camera Control Units.
Get the look
Broaden your creative possibilities and achieve exactly the look you want in any shooting situation. Low-key saturation ensures rich, vibrant colors in low-light areas. Powerful gamma functions give absolute control over fine-tuning tonal values, contrast and detail.
Simultaneous HDR and SDR production
The HDC-3100 can capture High Dynamic Range images, supporting Sony’s SR Live workflow for simultaneous HDR/SDR production with reduced inventory requirements.
This product contains pre-installed software and requires the purchase of license keys to activate some functions.
The go-anywhere camera
The magnesium alloy body of the HDC-3100 offers exceptional lightness and strength. Sure, stable handling is enhanced by the camera’s low center of gravity, easily adjustable shoulder pad and widened hand grip area. Also ideal for handheld operation, HDC series studio cameras offer exceptional user ergonomics in a wide range of studio and field-based production environments.
Simple solution for IP remote production
Adding the optional HDCE-TX30 IP camera extension adapter allows the HDC-3100 to output ST 2110 signals directly, without requiring a separate CCU (camera control unit), simplifying connection to an IP-based remote production system.
Remote control of ND/CC
Neutral density (ND) and color correction (CC) can be controlled from a remote-control panel (RCP), master setup unit (MSU), or directly from the camera head.
Backwards compatibility with Sony’s industry-acclaimed HDC-2000 series system cameras simplifies smooth integration with your current live production infrastructures, including cameras and CCUs.
Rich focus assist functions
The Viewfinder Detail function adds dedicated image-enhancing edge signals directly to the viewfinder, helping the operator to focus quickly and precisely in any shooting situation. It’s complemented by a Focus Assist Indicator and advanced Focus Position Meter function.
Servo-controlled ND filter
An optical Neutral Density (ND) filter wheel opens up wider creative possibilities. The filter can be controlled from a remote control panel, master setup unit, or directly from the camera head.
