HD Portable Digital Video Recorder
HD Video Processor
RGB Field Production
CineAlta products are Sonys response and commitment to the ITU 709 global standard, specifically intended for international high-definition (HD) program origination. Globally, HD programming is becoming far more mainstream, and the HDCAM format has become a very popular format supporting it. This popularity has escalated the demand for even greater picture quality and storage capacity to support extremely high-integrity digital production and multi-channel audio mastering. Responding to these demands, Sony has introduced a new state-of-the-art format that provides a platform with greater storage capacity, higher data-transfer rates, and more audio channels than current HDCAM models. This format is HDCAM-SR. The Sony SRW-1 HD Portable Digital Video Recorder and SRPC-1 HD Video Processor in combination form a full-bandwidth 4:4:4 (RGB) portable VTR system that adopts this HDCAM-SR format. It offers visually lossless 1080-line high-definition recordings at multiple frame rates on HDCAM-SR tape media, and greatly enhances shooting operations in field production applications due to its stunning picture quality and portable size. The SRW-1/SRPC-1 portable VTR system can connect to a variety of cameras including the F35 and the F23 film-style digital cinematography cameras, HDC1500 Series and the HDW-F900R CineAlta camcorder. When used with the F35/F23 camera, the SRW-1 can be directly docked onto this camera, establishing a cable-free and portable full-bandwidth 4:4:4 capturing system. The SRPC-1 processor unit, specially designed for the SRW-1, provides a variety of video-processing functions and houses an array of input and output connectors, including HD/SD signals, 12 channels of digital audio, and 4 channels of analog audio. Its processing functions include the easy handling of 2-3 pull-down insertions, down conversion, and RGB 4:4:4 to Y/ Cb/Cr 4:2:2 color-space conversion. Furthermore, with the addition of the optional HKSR-102 board, the SRW-1/SRPC-1 provides a powerful new feature called SR Motion, which includes various distinctive recording modes such as Select FPS and Interval Frames. Another powerful option for the SRW-1 is HKSR-103 board, which further adds RGB 4:4:4, 1 to 60 frames per second (fps) recording to the Select FPS function. Offering unprecedented HD image quality, excellent operability, and powerful interfacing capabilities, the SRW-1/SRPC-1 is an ideal HD portable VTR system for movie-making, commercial production, and high-end television production applications.
Features and Benefits
High-quality HD Field Recording
Connecting with its companion cameras, the SRW-1/SRPC-1 creates the highest-quality and most faithful portable HD image-capturing system ever seen. With full-bandwidth HD RGB 4:4:4 and top-quality 4:2:2 Y/Cb/Cr 10-bit recording capabilities, achieved by the new HDCAM-SR format, the SRW-1/SRPC-1 offers unprecedented picture quality meeting the needs of even the most demanding customers in movie-making, commercial production, and high-end television production industries, as well as the requirements of digital-content mastering. In addition, the SRW-1/SRPC-1 offers up to 12 channels of 24-bit audio at 48 kHz.
Multi-frame-rate 1080 HD Recording and Playback
The SRW-1/SRPC-1 supports both multi-frame-rate recording and playback using 1920 (H) x 1080 (V) active pixels as specified by the industry-standard ITU Common Image Format (CIF). This fulfills a wide range of needs such as digital cinematography, commercial, and high-end television program productions. The following range of both progressive and interlaced frame rates can either be recorded or played back: Progressive: 23.98PsF, 24PsF, 25PsF, 29.97PsF, 50P , 59.94P Interlace: 50i, 59.94i
720P Recording and Playback
In standard configuration, the SRW-1 also records in 4:2:2 720/59.94P format. This format can be used for North American DTV programming and transmission applications. As with the 1080 format, users still have up to 12 channels of 24-bit audio available when operating in 720P format.
The SRW-1/SRPC-1 is equipped with a unique double-data-rate recording capability, which doubles the drum rotation and tape speed and thus achieves an amazing data transfer rate of 880 Mbps (standard quality is 440 Mbps)*. This extremely high-speed data transfer rate provides three selectable recording modes for different purposes. The High-Quality (HQ) mode** is used to record highest-quality RGB 4:4:4 HD images. This is the ideal mode for applications where the highest possible picture quality is a top priority. The 1080/60P recording mode provides recording capability in 1080/50P or 59.94P format. It is also used to achieve a slow-motion effect when playing back recordings in 1080/30P format. The Dual Stream mode enhances flexibility and creative versatility. This mode allows the SRW-1/SRPC-1 to record the images of two cameras simultaneously making it possible for users to shoot two different scenes simultaneously or achieve 3D stereo shooting. * Recording time will be half that of the standard recording mode. ** The content recorded by the high-quality mode cannot be played
back by the SRW-5000/5500 VTR.
Long Recording Time
The SRW-1/SRPC-1 is capable of recording up to 50 minutes at 1080/23.98P and up to 40 minutes at 1080/59.94i or 720/59.94P on a single S-sized HDCAM-SR cassette. For even longer recording time, two SRW-1/SRPC-1 units can be cascaded to double the recording capacity.
Single Fiber Connection
Despite its outstanding HD image-capturing capability, the cable connections of the SRW-1/SRPC-1 remain extremely simple and clean. This is due to the implementation of an all-digital transmission system incorporating the latest optical technology. The result is a single-cable transmission system that carries all required lossless RGB signals from the F35/ F23* camera to the SRPC-1 processor and then records them to the docked SRW-1 VTR**. *The optional CA-F101 Optical Fiber
Adaptor (planned to be available in autumn 2008) required for the F35/F23. **The optional HKSR-101 Optical Interface Board required.

Operational and Creative Versatilities
RS-422 Interface for Server Connection
The industry-standard RS-422 Sony 9-pin interface allows editors to control the SRW-1/SRPC-1 remotely. Connecting to the server via a HD-SDI dual-link connection, the SRW-1/SRPC-1 acts as an on-line feeder, smoothly transferring the recorded material to the subsequent post-production operation.
F35/F23 in this mode, the cameras variable frame rate capability allows for both camera and recorder to operate at the same frame rate to provide the same motion effect and exposure capabilities as in film cameras. When recording in Select FPS mode, time code commensurate with the target playback speed is recoded to the variable frame rate recording at 24, 25 or 30 fps, yielding a comprehensive recording that is ready for post-production. In addition, a Speed Ramp function is supported which enables users to change frame rates while recording. This function allows for a preset ramp to be triggered at will, to smoothly and precisely affect frame rate changes in real time from one frame rate to another over a set period of time. The Select FPS function is further enhanced when the optional new HKSR-103 RGB 60P Processor board is added to the system. This makes it possible to record the full range of 1 to 60 fps* in RGB 4:4:4 a powerful capability that has never before been possible with any VTR. *Up to 50 fps with the F35. Interval Frames This mode can also be used to create over-cranking or under-cranking effects with any progressive camera. The Interval Frames function intermittently records signals onto a tape at intervals predetermined by the user. To achieve this, the SRW-1/SRPC-1 holds all the frames captured by the camera in the optional HKSR-102 frame buffer memory, and then records only those frames that occur at each interval to tape at standard frame rates with commensurate time code. The Speed Ramp function is also supported in this mode while camera frame rates remain constant (i.e 30 or 60 fps). Control over interval recordings is possible in MANUAL, AUTO and USER PROGRAM modes, allowing frame-rate setting changes during recording. The Timer Rec function enables time-lapse recording over longer periods by manual take or at predetermined intervals from 1 second up to 30 hours.
Detachable Control Panel
A detachable control panel provides operators with a comfortable VTR operating environment. When the control panel is detached, the supplied extension cable allows operators to control the SRW-1/SRPC-1 remotely.
Built-in Tele-File Read/Write Capability
The SRW-1/SRPC-1 has a built-in Tele-File read/write capability. Because this VTR accommodates a wide range of recording formats, the Tele-File feature which allows auxiliary information to be stored on a tape label containing an IC chip is utilized to verify the proper format. Tele-File labels come as a standard feature on all HDCAM-SR tapes.
The SRW-1 offers a variety of recording features that deliver impressive motion effects and allow users to be more creative when shooting. Sony SR Motion feature offers two powerful functionalities _ namely, Select FPS and Interval Frames _ each of which leverages the advanced processing capabilities of the SRW-1 and the internal memory of the optional HKSR-102 board. What makes this SR Motion feature so useful is that only the desired frames are recorded to tape, eliminating the need for post-production processes to create the desired effect, and allowing immediate review of the end result. It is a powerful and compact tool that creates instant and spectacular results on set.
Select FPS _ 4:2:2 and 4:4:4, recording up to 60 fps The Select FPS recording function, which is commonly known as over-crank and under-crank, allows users to create very smooth and elegant slow-motion and quick-motion images. When directly docked with the Sony F35/F23 Cinematography camera, the SRW-1 with the optional HKSR-102 board provides 1 to 60 fps* recording for 4:2:2 signals, or 1 to 30 fps recording for 4:4:4 signals, in increments of one frame per second. Using the
Internal Format Conversion Capability
In addition to RGB 4:4:4 to Y/Cb/Cr 4:2:2 conversion, the SRW-1/SRPC-1 possesses a wide variety of format-conversion (including 2-3 pull-down) capabilities ranging from HD to HD and HD to SD, offering solutions for high-quality material monitoring and work-tape creation.

F23 Digital Cinema Camera
The CineAlta Revolution
After building the world's first high definition camcorder, Sony went on to create the world's first camcorder to combine the real-time immediacy of HD with the traditional look of 24 frames per second. This was the landmark HDW-F900 CineAlta camcorder, launched in 2000. Since that time, Sony CineAlta equipment has helped create more box office hits than any other digital system. CineAlta gear transformed moviemaking with real-time HD image evaluation on-set, instant replay of full-color high-resolution digital "takes," digital image optimization while shooting and 50-minute loads -- all with significant cost benefits. The CineAlta system also provides a seamless bridge from 24P digital capture to 24-frame film distribution, giving each HD frame a one-to-one correspondence to a frame of film. Over the years, Sony has enhanced the CineAlta line with the HDW-F900R. We've pursued full-bandwidth 4:4:4 image capture with the HDC-F950 camera and SRW-1 HDCAM SR field recorder. Now we've taken the next step with our first film-style camera, the F23.
F23. Digital Technology Meets Film Style
Decades of Sony leadership in digital cinematography have been leading up to this. We aspired to build a digital camera that met the highest expectations of film cinematographers. So we consulted with directors of photography, camera operators, camera assistants and digital imaging technicians, and we applied our latest and best technology to create something completely new. The F23 is the first Sony digital cinema camera with film-camera controls and ergonomics, plus a chassis that accepts traditional film camera accessories without modification.
The F23 is designed to dock to the SRW-1 HDCAM SR field recorder, which mounts to the top or the back of the camera for all-in-one cable-free operation. The camera/recorder combination enables over- and undercranking, time lapse and speed ramps. And you can view all of these effects directly on the set and confirm that you got the shot. In addition, the option of log or conventional gamma encoding provides a choice of shooting style and postproduction path.
Extraordinary Image Quality
The F23 has been designed from the ground up for superlative imagery. It starts with a new prism block that enables the camera to capture Sony's widest color gamut ever - closer to the gamut of motion picture film. The three 1080/60P image sensors exceed the specifications of broadcast HDTV. Sony's 14-bit analog-to-digital converters and signal processing of up to 36 bits help achieve unprecedented color gradation in a digital camera and more than 12 stops of exposure latitude. So you get gorgeous handling of everything from specular highlights to deep shadows.
Established Post Path
The F23 leverages the spectacular quality of fullbandwidth, 4:4:4 HDCAM SR recording -- the system that's already widely accepted by leading post houses, digital intermediate houses and movie studios. The HDCAM SR format enables simple delivery of cassette tapes into postproduction -- and simple duplication of original camera master tapes for archival and insurance backup. Thanks to these advantages, the F23 offers a powerful combination: the advantages of digital with the operating style of film.
4:4:4 RGB Image Capture
The F23 was designed from the outset to preserve all the detail, contrast and color that the image sensors can capture. Most digital HD acquisition works within the ITU-R BT.709 standard, which specifies 4:2:2 sampling and Y/Cb/Cr encoding. The F23 exceeds this with full 4:4:4 RGB image capture and output. As a result, you get natural skin tones, rich color and exceptional resolution. The robust 4:4:4 signal is ideal for the most exacting green-screen compositing, aggressive color correction, and other image manipulations in post. The 4:4:4 signal excels in demanding feature film, commercial and episodic TV productions. For other projects, the F23 also supports high-quality 4:2:2 Y/Cb/Cr.
1080/60P Image Sensors
Because the F23 uses three separate image sensors for Red, Green, and Blue, there is no need for Bayer color filter arrays. And color values are never "interpolated" from neighboring pixels. You get the full resolution of 1920 (H) x 1080 (V) images at picture rates of up to 60 progressive frames per second. Even in deep shadows, image noise is remarkably low. And sensitivity is an ample T10 (in 23.98P mode).
Wider Color Gamut
Most HD cameras are limited to the ITU 709 high definition color gamut. Thanks to an improved prism block and digital signal processing of up to 36 bits, the F23 can go beyond ITU color, ideal for projects destined for theatrical release. Of course, ITU 709 color is always available for projects that require it.
Over 12 Stops of Exposure Latitude
Many HD cameras are limited to 9 stops of exposure latitude, forcing cinematographers to compromise between blown-out highlights or crushed blacks. Thanks to a revolutionary CCD design and 14-bit analog-todigital conversion, the F23 achieves more than 12 stops of exposure latitude. This enables you to shoot challenging, high-contrast scenes, and create images that stand up better through vigorous post manipulation.
Multiple Frame Rates
The F23 captures the Common Image Format (CIF): 1920 (H) x 1080 (V). To support a full range of cinema, episodic and commercial productions, the camera offers a choice of frame rates from 1 to 60 frames per second in 4:4:4 RGB or 4:2:2 Y/Cb/Cr. All of these frame rates can be recorded on the docking SRW-1 HDCAM SR field recorder. (For the SRW-1,Sony plans to support frame rates of 1 fps to 60 fps in 4:4:4 mode with the introduction of an additional HKSR-103 RGB 60P processor board.)
Developed expressly for cinematographers, the F23 offers a compact, rugged design familiar to film camera operators. The F23 body weighs just 5 kg (11 lbs.) without viewfinder. Hard mounting points on the top as well as the bottom maximize camera mounting options, such as Steadycam low mode.
Docked or Tethered Shooting
The F23 camera docks to the companion SRW-1 HDCAM SR recorder, forming a combination that is self-contained, cable-free and highly portable. The recorder can dock to the top or back of the camera. Top mounting is ideal for cranes, jibs and dollies, while back mounting maintains a low profile for Steadycam shots. For helicopter gimbals, car interiors and other setups where space is limited, you can also separate the camera and recorder by up to 100 meters of Dual-Link HD-SDI cabling. (The SRPC-1 processor is required for tethered operation.)
2/3-Inch Cine Lenses
Thanks to the boom in digital HD production, some of today's best cinematography lenses are available specifically for the 2/3-inch B4 mount. Zeiss, Canon, Fujinon and others have applied their expertise to produce exceptionally fast lenses to use with the F-23. Many are engineered to maintain full MTF performance when wide open. In this way, cinematographers can enjoy the best of both worlds: controlled depth of focus from lenses that are also fast, small and light. To accommodate the cinematic shooting style, these lenses are calibrated in T-stops instead of F-stops and have cinema-style focus rings and gear teeth for follow focus kits.
Ruggedized B4 Lens Mount
To better accommodate the weight of prime lenses, the F23 incorporates an extremely durable B4 lens mount. The mount's rigid material resists flexing and galling, to stand up to frequent lens changes. The B4 mount also offers high thermal stability for consistent back focus.
Film Camera Accessories
Without modification to the camera, the F23 accommodates film camera bridge plates, follow focus units, lens focus/zoom/iris servo controls and more.
Whether your background is film or digital, the F23 works the way you do, with a choice of "Cine Mode" and "Custom Mode" operation. Cine Mode preserves maximum latitude by applying S-LOG Gamma. Menus are strictly limited, as is incamera signal processing. Cine Mode is ideal for productions where the look will largely be established in the color correction suite. If you prefer more hands-on operation, Custom Mode enables you to fine-tune camera parameters to produce your desired look on the set. Even the shutter accommodates film or digitalstyle operating, with a choice of control by seconds or angle.
Supplied Assistant Panel
For operating in tight spaces where access to the camera body is limited, the F23 includes an Assistant Panel wired remote control. This duplicates the camera body's buttons and Electro-Luminescent display, making it easy to set frame rates, shutter angle and gain and to roll tape from a distance of up to two meters (six feet).
HDCAM SR 4:4:4 Recording
A Proven Recording System
The F23 docks directly to the SRW-1 recorder to deliver the proven performance of Sony's HDCAM SR system. The recorder can also be dismounted from the camera and connected by up to 100 meters of Dual-Link HD-SDI cabling. Launched in 2003 as the pinnacle of tapebased production, the HDCAM SR system has already delivered spectacular results for a wide range of cinematographers. The system also features affordable media, and rugged reliability.
A Proven Postproduction Path
Unlike some systems, the SRW-1 records onto compact, convenient, removable cassettes. Generating backup or archival copies of your original camera master is as simple dubbing a cassette in real time. HDCAM SR material also plays back in real time without the need for de-mosaicing or PC-based decompression. And HDCAM SR material is readily accepted by leading post, effects, and digital intermediate houses.
10-bit, 4:4:4 Recording
The HDCAM SR format is Sony's finest recording system. While most HD acquisition uses 8-bit recording, with less than 4:2:2 color, the HDCAM SR system uses 10-bit, 4:4:4 recording. The difference is profound, especially for projects that require highly precise green screen compositing, aggressive color correction and visual effects. The HDCAM SR system features full-bandwidth, 4:4:4 RGB color sampling. So not only do the camera's three image sensors capture every pixel as independent Red, Green and Blue samples; but every one of these samples is also recorded. In addition, the system's 10 bit quantization achieves superb tonal gradation. Of course, the SRW-1 also supports 4:2:2 Y/Cb/Cr recording, which is well suited to television projects.
Over- and Undercranking
The F23 camera and SRW-1 recorder put you in command of time itself with overcranking, undercranking and variable speed ramp effects. The SRW-1 can play these effects in the field, so you can confirm that you've got exactly the shot you want before you strike the set. There are no "pad frames," no sacrifice in picture quality, no external processing and no external hardware required.
Overcranking and undercranking require the optional HKSR-102 picture cache board. This enables variable frame rates from 1 fps to 60 fps in 4:2:2 mode, or 1 fps to 30 fps in 4:4:4 mode. Sony will support frame rates of 1 fps to 60 fps in 4:4:4 mode planned for the winter of 2007 with the additional HKSR-103 RGB 60P processor board.
SRW-1 shown with optional SRPC-1 processor.
Time Lapse with Speed Ramps
To make the clouds race by or the sun set in an instant, the F23 and SRW-1 also provide Interval Recording, the electronic name for time lapse photography. You get gorgeous effects from 60 fps to 1 fps. Three automatic speed ramp modes plus manual speed ramp enable you to vary the effect at will. Time lapse requires the HKSR-102 picture cache board.
A single BCT-40SR tape can hold up to 50 minutes of content (at 24P in Normal Quality 4:2:2 mode) or up to 25 minutes in high quality 4:4:4 mode. Using two SRW-1 recorders in tandem and the SRPC-1 processor, you can also record without time limits.
In-Camera Sound Recording
When docked to the F23, the SRW-1 also captures two channels of digital audio with superb 24-bit quantization and 48 kHz sampling.
Supplied Interface Module
The interface module for the F-23 attaches to the camera for flexible connections to the outside world. Two HD-SDI outputs support dual- or single-link connection to a detached SRW-1 or other recorder. Two-channel analog audio inputs enable audio capture to tape. The interface module also supports the optional BP-GL95 battery pack with the BKP-L551 battery adaptor.
You can monitor the F23 on a standard definition display, thanks to built-in downconversion and an analog composite video output.
12 V and 24 V DC Accessory Power
Following traditional filmmaking conventions, the F23 can provide DC power directly to lens servos and other accessories through 12 V and 24 V DC power connections. (24 V power requires a dual-voltage battery that can supply both 12 V and 24 V DC simultaneously.)
Twin Viewfinder Outputs
When several crew members need to see the viewfinder, the F23 shines. The camera supports simultaneous access to two viewfinders. For example, you can connect both the HDVF-C35W 3.5-inch viewfinder (viewable area, measured diagonally) and the HDVF-C950W 9.5-inch viewfinder (viewable area, measured diagonally).
Memory Stick PRO Media for Setups
Take your hard-won setups from camera to camera and shoot to shoot via Memory Stick PRO media cards. Save and recall scene files, reference files and lens files. These can include camera parameters for individual scenes, custom gamma curves from CVPFileEditor software, plus your own personal camera setup preferences, such as viewfinder indicator settings. (The F23 is compatible with Memory Stick PRO media up to 2GB capacity. Operation is not guaranteed for every type of Memory Stick media.)
For instant access to the functions you use most, the F23 enables you to assign functions to three pushbuttons and one switch.
Versatile Gamma Settings
In addition to lighting techniques in front of the lens, in-camera gamma settings can play an important role in handling contrast range and producing a specific "look." The F23 expands the options of gamma handling for total flexibility.
This setting takes advantage of the full latitude of high-contrast scenes, from the deepest shadows to the brightest specular highlights. S-LOG Gamma retains the full dynamic range of the CCD (700%). The setting also mimics the tonal response of a film negative, so you retain full flexibility in color correction and a seamless workflow with postproduction facilities geared toward LOG encoded material.
The F23 also enables you to customize gamma curves with supplied Windows PC software. An easy graphic user interface enables you to change the shape of the gamma curve, then load your curve into the camera via Memory Stick PRO media.
Like previous CineAlta camcorders, the F23 offers four preset HyperGamma curves. HyperGamma 1 and 3 enhance natural tonal reproduction in lowkey areas, while HyperGamma 2 and 4 are suitable for scenes with a wide range of light intensity, such as exterior day.
If you prefer to refine the "look" of a scene incamera, the F23 empowers you with adjustments similar to secondary color correction. Multi-Matrix control adjusts the hue and saturation of 16 individual color ranges, each roughly 20 degrees on the vector scope. These adjustments are performed at full bit depth.

HDVF-C35W LCD Color Viewfinder
The HDVF-C35W viewfinder incorporates a highresolution 3.5-inch LCD screen (viewable area, measured diagonally). The eyepiece adjusts to a full range of positions and angles, while an aspherical lens reduces aberration in the image corners. When several people need to see, you can also remove the eyepiece and view the LCD screen directly.
