The Sony HDC-X310 incorporates three 1/2-inch type 1.5-mega pixel HD CCDs which offer high resolution, high sensitivity, and high signal-to-noise characteristics. Packing this performance into an extremely compact chassis the HDC-X310 offers advanced features such as progressive scan modes, slow shutter, and exceptional interface and operational flexibility through its associated HFU-X310 interface unit, connected via a fiber optical cable. The HFU-X310 interface unit hosts up to two optional interface boards to cover a range of output signals, including HD-SDI, SD-SDI, and HDV through the i.LINK interface , as well as computer XGA output.

HD-SDI Output
The HDC-X310 has connectors for analog and digital outputs including uncompressed HD-SDI through a single BNC connector. This connector allows for ultimate fidelity in image transfer and detailed monitoring.
Small Size and Giant Performance
Although the HDC-X310 offers high quality HD images, it is designed to be as compact as possible. This enables it to be installed discretely in many locations such as houses of worship, reception halls, and conference rooms. The camera can also integrate into remote controlled pan/tilt/zoom systems and conventional production environments. The progressive scan image capture function makes the camera useful in scientific and microscopy applications.
Low Light Shooting
The HDC-X310 offers two convenient functions for capturing clear images in low-light environments, a Slow Shutter mode and a Gain function, which can be used separately or together. The Slow Shutter mode allows the charge accumulation period of the CCD (typically 1/60TH or 1/50TH second) to be extended up to approximately two seconds (64 frames). The Gain function allows the camera gain to be boosted to +48 dB. When these functions are used together, the camera offers a minimum illumination of 0.003 Lux.
Flexible Image Controls
The HDC-X310 provides highly advanced image-control functions such as matrix, a TruEye feature, skin-tone detail, and color temperature controls. These functions - previously available only on high end studio cameras or camcorders allow creative images to be produced with high clarity.
Optical and Electronic Lighting Controls
Optimum light and color control is easily achieved using the built-in optical Neutral Density filter wheel and electronic Color Correction (CC) function. The HDC-X310 uses electronic color correction to eliminate the need for optical color correction filters. This allows all filters on the filter wheel to be ND types, providing the operator with greater flexibility in depth of field and exposure control.
Optional HFU-X310 Control Unit
The beauty of the HDC-X310 camera is that it can be connected to the HFU-X310 control unit which adds digital connections including FireWire, HDV, and even standard definition SDI. Digital data including external sync, bi-directional RS-232C Pan and Tilt and camera control signals can be transmitted between the box and the camera via optical fiber cable. The cable can be up to 1000 meters (3280 feet) long. The HFU-X310 control box accepts several option boards for specific output needs including HD-SDI, SD-SDI, XGA computer output and iLink for FireWire and HDV signals.
Optional HKC-SV1 Servo Filter Unit
The camera can accept a special remote ND filter controller. The HDC-SV1 is a servo unit that allows the optical ND filters of the HDC-X310 to be control remotely from the RM-B750/B150 Remote Control Unit, the RCP-700 series Remote Control Panel or the MSU-900/950 Master Set-Up Unit.
