Features

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
