Technical information sheet of Sony HVR-A1E
Sony HVR-A1E

The Sony HVR-A1E HDV PAL Camcorder is the entry level HDV camcorder that records

high definition video as well as DVCAM and DV standard-definition video. The camera uses a

single 3-megapixel CMOS chip to capture images. The use of a CMOS (Complementary Metal

Oxide Semiconductor) chip allows the camera to capture amazing high quality images while

consuming less battery power and making the camera smaller overall. The Enhanced Imaging

Processor (EIP), a Sony created technology, enables the camcorder to capture and process high-

definition video and high resolution still images with the highest levels of contrast and detail.

This model is specifically for PAL system video applications.

See the Most with CMOS


The HVR-A1E realizes new levels of compact design and efficiency with a single 3

megapixel CMOS imaging chip. Compared to a CCD (Charged Coupled Device), a

CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) works more efficiently and burns

less battery power. It uses both positive and negative polarity circuits, only one at any

given time.


Professional Audio Inputs

As with its big brother the HVR-Z1 3-CCD camcorder, this single chip camera offers

professional shooters balanced XLR audio inputs with phantom power and attenuation

options. A shotgun microphone can be mounted on top the camcorder as a large,

shoulder-mount ENG style camera would.


Zeiss Lens

The professional video and filmmaker will not be disappointed with the quality of glass at the front of the A1U camera. Sony has engineered the camera around a Carl Zeiss Vario-

Sonnar T* lens for the latest in anti-reflective coatings and new levels of HDTV-quality

resolving power in a compact design. This camera's a 10x zoom lens has a maximum

wide angle of 5.1 mm which will show a 50° horizontal angle of view.


1080 Lines Resolution


The HVR-A1E is a tiny camera capable of recording in several frame rates including

NTSC. When it is set up to record standard definition video this camera is an PAL device


that stripes the tape at 30 interlace frames per second. When it is selected to record in

HDV it can record 50, 25 frames per second. Its widescreen chip captures over 1000

horizontal lines and 1440 vertical lines no matter what you dial in for record format.
