Sony has introduced a DVCAM camcorder targeted at the professional user and not the broadcaster.

The new DSR-PD150P is the first in a new line of camcorders for this fast growing market sector and incorporates many DVCAM format features. It builds on the quality of the DCR-VX1000E, which has been adopted by broadcasters, education facilities and the corporate market.

Although the DSR-PD150P is a DVCAM camcorder, it has DV (SP) recording and playback compatibility that enables emergency ‘long-time’ recording. At the heart of the DSR-PD150P is a new 1/3-inch three CCD camera system that, when compared with the DCR-VX1000E doubles the camcorder's light sensitivity, improves the S/N ratio, reduces smear levels and enhances low-light performance levels down to two lux.

Another new feature, ‘Super Steadyshot’, detects and compensates for any horizontal or vertical movement.

Meanwhile, Sony has also introduced the DCR-VX2000E DV camcorder for the domestic market. However the DSR-PD150P is optimised especially for professional usage and enables a new generation of professional video shooting.

Additional features not found on the DCR-VX2000E, including Time Code preset, Audio XLR input and Logo Auto insert, make it possible.
