Sony HDC-P1 Wireless Camera Control
The HDC-P1 is the smallest, lightest camera in the Sony HDC range . This camera does away with handles, viewfinders and fibre interfaces making it the perfect camera head for Steadicam operation on live TV. With the 2/3-inch type 2.2-mega pixel full HD “Power HAD FX” CCD there is no compromise on picture quality, the HDC-P1 features all the control that is available on the other cameras in the HDC range. For these reasons the HDC-P1 has become commonplace on TV shows all over the world and a firm favourite with Steadicam operators.
The Maxwell z24 system supports wireless control over the HDC-P1 camera using Sony control panels including the RCP-1500. It has been tried and tested on numerous live shows alongside this camera. Bidirectional control means that all features can be controlled and camera parameters viewed in real time. Why settle for anything less than full control? There are no licensing requirements for the radio operation as it utilises robust Frequency Hopping technology in the 2.4GHz ISM band. Red and Green Tally signals are supported on the camera and the control panel as standard.
