Image of the following product: HXCU-FB80


HD Studio Camera System with 4K Upscale and HD HDR Capability

The HXC-FB80* is a cost-effective high-performance HD portable camera with three Sony 2/3-inch Exmor™ CMOS sensors and a 3G-SDI platform capable of 1080/50p and 59.94p signal processing while achieving low power consumption. In combination with the HXC-FB80 HD Camera, HXCU-FB80* CCU offers user-beneficial expandability including 4K upscale and HD HDR support (HLG, Hybrid Log-Gamma)** for a future-proof solution. The optional PC-based HZC-RCP5 Remote Control Panel is available for a simpler application system.

*HXCU-FB80N CCU model and HXC-FB80N camera model both equipped with Neutrik connector interface.
*HXCU-FB80L CCU model and HXC-FB80N camera model both equipped with Lemo connector interface.
** Requires firmware upgrade available in 2018.

Model Variations


The N suffix indicates a Neutrik connector; the L suffix indicates a LEMO connector.

*Not available in the USA or Canada


3G-SDI Platform Capable of 1080/50p and 59.94p

The camera head and CCU can comfortably output 3G-SDI signals including 1080/50p and 59.94p. The new processor can also support 1080/23.98 PsF on top of 25 PsF and 29.97 PsF.

Future-Proof 4K Upscalable and HD HDR Support with CCU

Combined with the HXCU-FB80 CCU, the HXC-FB80 camera’s output is 4K upscalable and yet HD HDR-capable supporting HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma).* For 4K signal output, the HXCU-FB80 is equipped with a 12G-SDI interface with quad 3G-SDI.

* Requires firmware upgrade available in 2018..


In addition to hardware-based remote control units, PC software-based HZC-RCP5 Remote Control is also available.

MCS (Multi Camera System) capabilities

The HXCU-FB80 CCU provides support for up to 24 units, forming a complete MCS system.

Long Cable Extension and Choice of Fiber Interface

Using a hybrid cable with a power supply, the distance between the camera head and CCU can be extended up to 600 m. In case of the combination with HXC-P70, it can extend up to 1,000 m. In addition to the Neutrik connector interface, a LEMO connector interface is also available for the camera head and CCU.

Long-distance transmission up to 10km with single-mode fiber cable In the case of connection with a single-mode fiber cable (SMF), transmission can extend up to 10km using a local power supply.

HD Video Trunk and HD Prompter

In addition to the camera captured 1080 50i/59.94i video signal, another video signal can be passed through the same fiber connection line to the CCU side because of the 3G-SDI platform. Further to the traditional analog composite prompter support, the HD-SDI signal can be supplied from the CCU side.
