Sony X70 Features:
1.0 type Exmor R CMOS sensor for a wide range of shooting conditions
The PXW-X70 incorporates a 1.0 type Exmor R CMOS sensor, which is approximately the same size
as a Super 16mm film frame, to achieve high resolution, high sensitivity, low noise, and wide dynamic
range. The sensor has 14.2 million effective pixels enhancing shooting under severe lighting conditions
and providing more freedom of creative expression.

Advanced BIONZ X image processing engine
An evolved BIONZ engine achieves more lifelike images, and enables the addition of new features
that take advantage of faster processing.

QoS Streaming*
This feature allows images to be streamed live from the camcorder for viewing at a remote location.
Data transfer rate, specified by two image quality menu settings (1280x720p and 640x360p), can be
selected to suit the network environment being used. HD recording on internal media is available at
XAVC HD 422/10-bit, AVCHD and MPEG HD*. There is no need for separate PC set-up, everything
can be set on the camcorder’s menu.

Direct streaming via Ustream*
The PXW-X70 is capable of direct streaming in real time using Ustream®. Ideal for small events that do
not require multi-camera switcher operation, it is possible to share scenes as they happen with high
quality picture and sound. Two resolution modes are available: 1280x720 (29.97p, 25p, 23.98p) or
640x360 (29.97p, 25p, 23.98p).

FTP Transfer*
This feature supports FTP file transfers on the PXW-X70, allowing content files recorded with the XAVC
Proxy Recording feature and other content files shot in XAVC (4K/HD), MPEG HD and AVCHD formats
to be sent over the Internet for remote storage on an FTP server.
Wired LAN Connection*
This feature allows the PXW- X70 to be connected to the Internet over a wired connection via separately
available USB adapter cable “VMC-UAM2” and Network adaptor kit “CBK-NA1”, allowing files to be
streamed or transferred by FTP.

Wi-Fi/NFC (Near Field Communication) with Content Browser Mobile™
The PXW-X70 can be remotely controlled from a smartphone or tablet computer (iOS 4.3 through 7.0 or
Android 2.3 through 4.3) via a Wi-Fi connection. One-touch authentication is also possible with
smartphones that offer NFC connectivity*. The required Content Browser Mobile™ mobile smartphone
application can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or App Store.
* Wi-Fi operation cannot be guaranteed with all smartphones and tablet computers.

Dual media slots, Simul or Relay recording, and independent record control 
The PXW-X70 is equipped with two memory card slots. The camcorder is compatible with Memory Stick
PRO Duo (Mark 2), Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo, as well as SDXC and SDHC cards. Two media slots can
record in either Simul or Relay mode. Simul mode permits simultaneous recording to two memory cards,
while Relay mode automatically switches recording from the first to the second memory card when the
first is full. The user can set up the two Start/Stop buttons on the PXW-X70, one on the grip and one on t
he camcorder body, to independently start and stop recording on different memory cards while recording
in Simul mode.

ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens
The PXW-X70 is supplied with a fixed 29 mm wide-angle ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens. Ideal for capturing
grand landscapes, it also provides up to 12x optical zoom.

The camcorder offers numerous connections to suit the broadcast workflow, including 3G HD-SDI, HDMI®, 
USB and composite output. The Rec Trigger signal can be sent through SDI and HDMI to link an external
recording device. HDMI/SDI/composite output is possible during QFHD recording.
* Requires Version 3.0 or higher firmware.
