Supports multiple SD and HD codecs including XAVC*

Supports multiple SD and HD codecs including XAVC* The PMW-400K is an affordable 3x 2/3-inch CMOS high quality sensor broadcast camcorder that, like the PMW-500, supports all SD / HD 422 broadcast workflows using MXF or XDCAM EX workflows using MP4 and AVI files. It also supports XAVC 10-bit HD 4:2:2 MXF file recordings.

XAVC 10-bit HD 422 and MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps recordings ideal for a wide range of shooting conditions

PMW-400 is able to record XAVC 10-bit HD422 recordings, including XAVC Intra frame 10-bit HD 422 100 Mbps and XAVC Long GOP 10-bit HD 422 (low bit rate)*. It also records 50Mbps HD material in MPEG-2 HD422, meeting broadcast standards around the world, including the European Broadcasting Union’s (EBU) requirements on HD broadcast acquisition for long form programme making. Standard Definition recording includes DVCAM format and MPEG IMX SD up to 50Mbps. MPEG IMX format offers exceptional visual quality for SD recording that is comparable to Digital Betacam broadcast standard. The high bit rate ensures excellent capture of fast moving objects, while its chroma subsampling feature is perfect for a wide range of video encoding areas such as VFX and green screen applications. The camcorder can also support Sony’s revolutionary XAVC codec, extending the lifecycle of the product to ensure maximum return on investment*. * Free firmware upgrade for XAVC Long GoP from October 2014
