Power HAD WS™ CCD.
The DSR-570WSP is equipped with three 2/3-inch Power HAD WS IT CCDs with a high density of 570,000 pixels. Since the CCDs are originally designed for the 16:9 aspect ratio, high quality images can be obtained in the 16:9 mode with virtually no image loss. With a high sensitivity of F11 (at 2000 lux, 3200 K), a remarkable signal-to-noise ratio of 61 dB and a low vertical smear level of -120 dB are achieved.

Advanced Encoding Circuit
The DSR-570WSP performs digital-to-analogue encoding in a wider signal bandwidth than the DSR-500WSP. This contributes to the high horizontal resolution of 850 TV lines (4:3 mode) and 800 TV lines (16:9 mode).

Hyper Gain (42 dB)
Hyper Gain is a useful function that allows shooting in the dark by boosting the electric gain to 36 dB. Using the viewfinder menu system, the gain level of Hyper Gain can be set to a maximum of 42 dB (DSR-570WSP only). This allows shooting in as low as 0.25 lx. Simply flipping the HYPER GAIN switch turns on this function.

Camera Setup Files
When the SETUP switch is set to FILE position, a total of eight Camera Setup Files can be viewed via the VF (View-finder) Menu system. Five files are factory preset to match the most common lighting conditions, including STANDARD, HIGH SATURATION, and FLUORESCENT. An additional three User Files allow the operator to customize the camera parameters to particular shooting situations. With the SetupNavi™ function, the User Files and Factory Preset Files can also be stored to the VAUX portion of a DVCAM tape.

Digital Output with i.LINK Interface
The DSR-570WSP adopts a 6-pin i.LINK interface for digital signal output. This enables a back-up recording onto DV and DVCAM VTRs with just one i.LINK cable. The i.LINK cable carries digital video/audio signals and control signals simultaneously. For instance, when the DSR-570WSP is connected to the Sony DVCAM Studio VTR, simple cut editing can be performed without signal deterioration.

Black Stretch and Compress
Contrast in the black area of an image can be easily adjusted using the Black Stretch/Compress control function. Black Stretch emphasises contrast in dark areas, while Black Compress enhances or deepens darkness.

Freeze Mix Function
The Freeze Mix function superimposes a previously recorded image on the view-finder, allowing the operator to easily frame or re-position a subject when a shot must be taken in the same framework as a previous take. Combined with the SetupLog™ function, a retake is a breeze.

Useful Features for Recording Operation
The DSR-570WSP has a variety of features to make recording easy : - 26-pin VTR interface to feed live camera output signals to an external recorder - 26-pin for studio operation control - Pool Feed operation - Optional DSBK-501 Analogue Composite Input Board allows the camcorder to serve as a VTR - Edit Search function for easy access to the edit point - SetupLog - Automatic recording of camera setting data for each shot onto the DVCAM tape.

1.5-inch black-and-white viewfinder (DXF-801CE)
