Spectacular 4K quality made brilliantly accessible
The HDC-3200 system camera brings pristine 4K image quality and impressive versatility to every live production. Sharing many operational features with Sony’s acclaimed HDC Series of cameras, the HDC-3200 features a highly sensitive 4K 3CMOS sensor with Global Shutter Technology, delivering sparkling picture quality with extremely low noise – even in dimly lit studios.
Start with less investment, upgrade in future
The HDC-3200 has flexible upgradability. You can start with less investment for HD shooting and can upgrade to 4K(2000TVL) as future proof without any hardware change. Also, adding the optional HDCE-TX30 IP camera extension adaptor allows the HDC-3200 to output ST 2110 signals directly without requiring a separate CCU (camera control unit), simplifying connection to an IP-based remote production system.
Sensitive 2/3-inch 4K CMOS imager with global shutter
The high-performance 2/3-inch 4K CMOS image sensor at the heart of the HDC-3200 achieves extremely high sensitivity with an impressive signal-to-noise ratio. Sony’s class-leading Global Shutter Technology eliminates the ‘jello effect’ and banding noise, allowing the HDC-3200 to capture stable, precise 4K (UHD) images even with fast-moving subjects. Whether you’re shooting in news studios with LED walls or live entertainment venues, viewers will appreciate premium pictures with exquisite 4K detail and high dynamic range, with support for the ITU-R BT.2020 wide colour space.
Quick conversion from handheld to large lens operation
Compatibility with Sony’s new HDLA-3505 and HDLA-3501 large lens adaptors gives even more flexibility in live production environments. Unlike traditional ‘build-up’ kits, the adaptor allows fast one-touch mounting of the camera head without the need for time-consuming wiring and adjustments. As a further time-saving feature the HDC-3200 can be undocked from the adaptor without needing to remove the lens.

Optical Low-Pass FilterIn cases where a HDC-3200’s Series camera’s built-in Filter does not fully reduce the moire caused by some LED walls, the optional Optical Low Pass Filter (OLP) will help further reduce the moire effect (Part number; 1-856-731-31).
