Affordable migration to High Definition

Providing HDV with the 1080i Standard and joining the existing DVCAM range, the HVR-Z1E offers users an affordable migration path from Standard Definition whilst retaining the popular DVCAM benefits such as ease of use and i.LINK (IEEE1394) connectivity. In additionto its compact size, the HVR-Z1E boasts a number of features over consumer-oriented products making it ideal for the professional user.

This product comes with the full PrimeSupport package. That’s fast, hassle-free repairs, a helpline offering expert technical advice, and a free loan unit while yours is repaired. Plus the peace of mind that Sony is looking after your equipment – and your business.

  • An affordable way to enjoy High Definition

    Through the HDV format Sony's HVR-Z1E allows you to capture High Definition pictures on a standard DV format cassette - providing both a highly cost effective format and full 1080 line resolution.

  • The ability to choose the most appropriate recording format for your production

    With the Sony HVR-Z1E, you are able to switch between HDV, DVCAM and DV recording giving you full flexibility to record in either Standard or High Definition depending on your production needs.

  • Designed for Professional Use

    As a professional product, Sony recognises that your needs are different to that of a consumer. As a result the HVR-Z1E incorporates more than 40 extra functions over the consumer camcorder HDR-FX1E to help support you and your production needs.

  • Easy integration to the way you already work - convert from HDV to Standard Definition if required.

    Continuity of Workflow can be very important. Enjoying the benefits of the HVR-Z1E does not mean that you need to change the way you work. Like DVCAM, i.LINK (IEEE1394) provides connectivity to PC based editing systems. In addition, you can choose to shoot in HDV and use the in-built down-converter to output in DVCAM allowing editing and final production to be carried out in Standard Definition in the usual way.

  • Cinema-look Shooting

    The HVR-Z1E offers the capability to provide a cinema-look to your production images using Cineframe™ 25 Mode (25 frame progressive-look effect) and 2-mode Cinematone Gamma™.

  • AC Adaptor/Charger included as standard

    AC Adaptor/Charger AC-VQ850 is supplied as standard with the HVR-Z1E providing great value for money
