Offers 3G 1080/50P transmission as standard
The HDC-2400 system camera is part of the HDC-2500 Series - successor to the HDC-1500R Series - and incorporates Sony’s advanced technologies for studio cameras. A 2/3-inch CCD and the Digital Signal Processing (DSP) with 16 bit A/D converter provides amazing picture quality with minimal noise and high dynamic range.
Extra functions and enhanced body design
The HDC-2400 has a camera body designed for exceptional robustness and operational efficiency. The HDC-2400 also provides more flexibility on transmission due to its side panel that can be easily replaced for HD Wireless (3rd Party) or Triax transmission (availability TBC) systems.
The HDC-2400 is 3G and a multi-format product (1080/50i,59.94i and 720/50p,59.94p). It can be fully updated to the HDC-2500 by adding option keys (23.97p/25p, 50p/59.94p, 100i/119.88i).

Newly developed CCD and DSP
The CCD and DSP provides incomparable picture quality due to the new 2/3-inch CCD & 16bit A/D converter, improved S/N Ratio, better low light and highlights handling. This enables more creative capabilities from variety shows to DMC productions and more realistic rendering of sport events.
1080/50P and 3G single link
The HDC-2400 offers 3G capability and Beyond 1080/50P,59.94P format using the extra bandwidth: RGB 12bit output for creative shootings, 3D Transmission on one cable, extra fibre length up to 4km, double speed acquisition, gigabit Ethernet Trunk line, and more.
High reliability and operational efficiency
The HDC-2400 has been designed for being more robust than ever for all kind of shooting conditions of Outside Broadcasters. It new carbon fibre body provides a more solid camera body for less weight and environmental footprint.
Compatibility with HDC-1500R Series accessories
As the HDC-2400 is fully compatible with HDC-1500R Series cameras, it inherits their very wide choice of peripherals such as viewfinders (HDVF), Remote Control Panels (RCP) and the Sony unique Large Lens Adapters (HDLA) system.
