Ultimate palm-sized camcorder with XAVC 4K (QFHD)* and MPEG HD**
The popular PXW-X70 palm-sized camcorder continues to evolve with the addition of XAVC 4K (QFHD) 100Mbps* recordings at 30p/25p/24p, plus MPEG HD422 and MPEG HD420**, providing even more recording choices. It is possible to select an output from HDMI, SDI, and composite while recording QFHD, plus a salvage function for XAVC file is available***. The camcorder also records XAVC HD, AVCHD and DV with advanced network functions such as QoS Streaming in Network Client Mode and Ustream® direct streaming added via firmware version 3.0. The PXW-X70 gives users the ultimate balance between picture quality, advanced functionality and compact size.
Network functions including Ustream and QoS Streaming*
The PXW-X70 is packed with all the latest network functions, from QoS Streaming for high quality of transmission when streaming to the PWS-100RX1 in Network Client Mode, to direct streaming using Ustream, with no need for a separate PC setup when using version 3.0 or higher firmware. The camcorder also provides Wi-Fi/NFC (Near Field Communication) with Content Browser Mobile™ software.
1.0 type Exmor R CMOS sensor for a wide range of shooting conditions
The PXW-X70 incorporates a 1.0 type Exmor R CMOS sensor, which is approximately the same size as a Super 16mm film frame, to achieve high resolution, high sensitivity, low noise, and wide dynamic range. The sensor has 14.2 million effective pixels enhancing shooting under severe lighting conditions and providing more freedom of creative expression.
The palm-sized PXW-X70 is ergonomically designed to provide a lightweight and easy-to-use experience.
Direct streaming via Ustream*
The PXW-X70 is capable of direct streaming in real time using Ustream®. Ideal for small events that do not require multi-camera switcher operation, it is possible to share scenes as they happen with high quality picture and sound. Two resolution modes are available: 1280×720 (29.97p, 25p, 23.98p) or 640×360 (29.97p, 25p, 23.98p).
Wired LAN Connection*
This feature allows the PXW- X70 to be connected to the Internet over a wired connection via separately available USB adapter cable “VMC-UAM2” and Network adaptor kit “CBK-NA1”, allowing files to be streamed or transferred by FTP.
High sensitivity and high resolution
The PXW-X70 has higher resolution than any other camcorder in its price range. The 1.0 sensor is brighter and offers more bokeh with a shallow depth of field than 1/3-inch or 1/4.7-inch sensors.
Advanced BIONZ X image processing engine
An evolved BIONZ engine achieves more lifelike images, and enables the addition of new features that take advantage of faster processing.
This feature allows images to be streamed live from the camcorder for viewing at a remote location. Data transfer rate, specified by two image quality menu settings (1280x720p and 640x360p), can be selected to suit the network environment being used. HD recording on internal media is available at XAVC HD 422/10-bit, AVCHD and MPEG HD*. There is no need for separate PC set-up, everything can be set on the camcorder’s menu.
This feature supports FTP file transfers on the PXW-X70, allowing content files recorded with the XAVC Proxy Recording feature and other content files shot in XAVC (4K/HD), MPEG HD and AVCHD formats to be sent over the Internet for remote storage on an FTP server.
