NEW GENERATION HD CAMCORDERS
The tapeless workflow revolution is no secret within broadcast and professional circles. A continuously evolving range of HD Tapeless camcorders has brought previously unimaginable levels of picture quality and functionality to prosumer and entry-level film makers.
As registered Sony Professional dealers, Gearhouse Broadcast offer the Sony HDV range of Camcorders that bring HD Picture quality and professional functionality within reach of film makers on a limited budget.
Solid State memory cards are a feature of Sony’s HDV range as well as Panasonic’s AVC & P2 Ranges and JVC’s HDV and Tapeless Ranges. Memory cards allow for smooth HDV/DVCAM/DV workflow without the expense of proprietary video decks or having to wait for real-time video transfers.
With prices starting at around £1500, this latest generation of HD camcorders is proving hugely popular with independent film-makers, wedding photographers and educational and academic institutions looking for professional look and feel on a tight budget.
These are no less exiting times for the already established broadcast professional.
The Sony NXCAM camcorders signal a major step forward in affordability and technology for those looking to switch away from tape to solid-state recording via the cost effective AVC HD format, while Sony’s XDCAM & XDCAM EX ranges continuously push the boundaries of tapeless acquisition, bringing a whole raft of advantages, including faster than real time workflow, lossless copying, proxy files and metadata.
At the very top end of the market, Sony’s HDCAM SRW-9000 or HDW-F900R are the aristocracy of HD camcorders, offering ultimate picture quality and detail allied to creative freedom to the dedicated film-maker.
