Power HAD technology
All models employ Power HAD CCDs. Building on the Hyper HAD system, with the On-Chip-Lens layer that brought major improvements to camera performance; further technological improvements have been incorporated to implement Power HAD technology. Power HAD sensors further reduce vertical smear, allowing total freedom of picture content. They are also more sensitive, enabling production in low light conditions and contributing significantly to outstanding signal to noise ratio performance.
The DVW-790WS has a sensitivity of F9.0 at 2000 lux (equivalent to 500 ISO or more).
Advanced Digital Signal Processing
The very sophisticated 12-bit A/D Converter and the Advanced Digital Signal Processing (ADSP) used by the Digital Betacam camcorders ensure not only superb picture quality with a wide dynamic range (600%) and enhanced tonal reproduction, but also offers enhanced operational features when setting camera parameters. These camcorders have an improved, menu-driven set up that allows a very high level of user customization.
Cassette loading
Vertical cassette loading minimizes the risk of exposure of the tape mechanism to the elements. The robust cassette compartment is dust and drip proof, and minimizes acoustic noise.
Stereo audio line output
A stereo audio line output is available from the 5-pin XLR connector on the rear of the camcorder. This provides two analog audio output channels, which can be selected to be either CH-1/2 or CH-3/4.
Internal light system
All Digital Betacam camcorder models incorporate an internal light power supply system. An Anton Bauer standard 2-pin socket can supply up to 50 W from the camcorder's lithium-ion battery. The light can be switched on and off manually or, in Auto mode, is switched on at record start and off when recording stops to maximize battery life. A switch on the side of the camcorders selects Manual or Auto mode.
Turbo gain - high sensitivity
Although nominal sensitivity of all models is high, in some situations it is necessary to shoot in extremely low light. The Turbo Gain feature raises the gain level to an incredible +48 dB. Thanks to this feature, it is possible to record critical scenes down to around 0.2 lux - exceeding the color sight capability of the human eye.
LCD status panel and diagnostic system
All the main operational switches are in their familiar place on the side of the camera. The LCD panel is on the same side, showing a wide range of status and diagnostic displays. The VTR set-up menu is now displayed in the viewfinder.
Clear Scan
The Clear Scan function is available to minimize the horizontal bars that can appear when shooting computer CRT displays. The DVW-790WS FIT Camcorder provides Extended Clear Scan, which allows electronic shutter, speeds to be set below 50 Hz.
