The PXW-X200 new features include wireless/NFC (Near Field Communication) functions via an included wireless module, live streaming audio and video, simultaneous recording to two SxS media card slots, a Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe, and GPS data recording 



Three 1/2-inch type Exmor™ CMOS Full HD sensors offer superb picture quality

The PXW-X200 incorporates three 1/2-inch type Full-HD Exmor™ CMOS sensors to achieve high resolution, high sensitivity, low noise, and wide dynamic range. With these image sensors, the PXW-X200 achieves a high sensitivity of F12 at 1080/59.94i and F13 at 1080/50i – essential levels for professionals shooting under challenging lighting conditions.


17x professional HD zoom lens with three independent rings with end-stop and large focal length

The PXW-X200 is equipped with a 17x Fujinon professional HD zoom lens able to zoom from 29.3mm to 499mm (35mm equivalent). The 1/2-inch type lens has three independent control rings with end-stop, which allows manual control of focus, zoom and iris, making for better and faster adjustment.


High quality XAVC Intra and XAVC Log GOP recordings

The PXW-X200 supports not only MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps in MXF (Material eXchange Format), which is widely accepted by major broadcasters worldwide, but also XAVC Intra and XAVC Long GOP codecs. XAVC technology is based on the H.264 standard, which provides an exceptional performance compression technology. XAVC Intra (frame) compression means that every frame is encoded independent of the other frames – providing a better quality picture, without compromises. With a Long GOP codec, only certain frames are encoded individually. This allows the codec to squeeze the video into a much smaller bitrate than Intra technology. The main benefit is faster ingest and editing. XAVC Long GOP files also require less storage space than XAVC Intra files, providing budget savings on recording media. The XAVC codec adopts 10-bit sampling for high definition recording with rich tonal expression.


Switchable recordings for greater flexibility

As well as shooting at XAVC HD, MPEG HD 422 50 Mbps and MPEG HD 420 35 Mbps, the camcorder also supports DVCAM at 25 Mbps in MXF file format and MPEG IMX at 50 Mbps in UDF mode. MPEG HD 422 gives a high quality image with more detailed colour reproduction, as well as being ideal for chromakeying. High-quality MPEG HD422 50 Mbps is fully compliant with the latest EBU recommendations for long-form broadcast production and is widely accepted in broadcasting stations and production houses. This recording capability makes the PXW-X200 ideal for a wide range of broadcast applications, including newsgathering and documentary production.


Dual SxS media slots, “Simul”* or “Relay” recording, and independent record control

The PXW-X200 is equipped with two SxS memory card slots. The camcorder is compatible with SxS PRO+ and SxS-1 memory cards, XQD, SDXC and SDHC cards can be also used with an appropriate card adaptor. 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-X200, one on the grip and one on the camcorder body, to independently start and stop recording on different memory cards while recording in Simul mode.
* Simul recording mode requires firmware upgrade.


Cache recording

Once activated, the PXW-X200 continuously streams audio and video into its internal memory. When the REC START/STOP button is pressed, content buffered in the camcorder’s memory is recorded onto the memory card at the start of the recording clip. The caching period can be set at up to 15 seconds. This function is useful when shooting a developing situation such as during news gathering, so as not to miss a critical moment.


Wireless file transfer and streaming*

Users can simply attach the supplied Wireless LAN module to activate the wireless function on the PXW-X200. And by connecting with separately sold internet routers, proxy or high-resolution files can be transferred to a cloud server, and the editing process can be started while location shooting continues. The PXW-X200 also has a streaming capability. By attaching a separately sold LTE USB module**, live video and audio can be streamed, watched, and recorded at a remote location.
* A firmware version upgrade is required to activate this function.
** This function works only with compatible modules.


Near Field Communication* (NFC) function with Content Browser Mobile™

A Near Field Communication (NFC) function allows easy, one-touch wireless LAN connection to a smartphone or tablet device without manual setting of the network parameters. A Content Browser Mobile** application enables users to monitor the currently shot video and to wirelessly control camcorder settings such as focus, zoom, iris, white balance, REC START/STOP, and more.
* NFC allows close-range wireless communication between the PXW-X200 and an NFC-equipped smartphone or tablet device.
** This application can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or App Store.


Proxy recording on SD card

The PXW-X200 can record proxy video H.264 on an SD card. The resolution and bitrate of proxy video can be changed for a more flexible workflow. The proxy files are recorded in MP4 format for better compatibility with broadcast systems. The lightweight proxy video files are generated separately from the main line recording and recorded to SD cards for quick sharing of content over low-bandwidth mobile networks.


Multi Interface Shoe* (MI Shoe) for flexible connection without XLR cable

The PXW-X200 is equipped with a Multi Interface Shoe (MI Shoe) that has an electric interface in its mechanical attachment allowing the camcorder to communicate with an attached accessory. Accessories attached to the MI Shoe can be controlled by the camcorder. Using an MI Shoe connection, the audio signal from a UWP-D11 or UWP-D12 wireless microphone package can be input from the wireless microphone receiver to the PXW-X200 without an XLR cable. The power can be supplied from the PXW-X200 to the receiver and a battery is not required for the receiver operation. So, for example, if the HVL-LBPC video light is attached to the MI Shoe, video light power can be switched on and off from the camcorder.
*MI Show will be activated by a firmware version upgrade, scheduled in Spring 2015.


3.5 inch-type QHD (960x540) colour LCD panel

The PXW-X200 is equipped with a large, easy-to-read, 3.5 inch-type QHD colour LCD panel, which helps to achieve precise focus control. This LCD panel also displays a range of information in support of shooting operations.


0.45-type LCD viewfinder

The PXW-X200 has the 0.45-type 1.23M pixels (852 x 480) LCD viewfinder (16:9).


Slow & Quick motion

A Slow & Quick Motion function is available on the PXW-X200. The recording frame rate can be selected from 1 frame per second (fps) to 60 fps both in 1080P and 720P format to create high-quality slow motion or quick motion images. The selectable frame rate depends on the CODEC selected in the camera.


ND filters

The PXW-X200 is equipped with a three position ND filter. Clear, 1/8ND or 1/64ND can be chosen.


Picture Profile

The PXW-X200/X280 has Picture Profile function. The settings can be saved on a SxS memory card and shared with the other PXW-X200 camcorders.


Wide choice of connections

The camcorder offers numerous connections to suit the broadcast workflow, including 3G HD-SDI, HDMI®, USB, composite output, timecode input/output and genlock input. The 3G-SDI connector is able to output the 1080/59.94P or 50P signal. Down-conversion output from HD to SD is also possible. The i.LINK connector can be used for HDV when SP 1440 (FAT) mode is selected and for DV when DVCAM (FAT) mode is selected. Simultaneous output from both SDI and HDMI is possible. The Rec Trigger signal can be sent through SDI and HDMI to link an external recording device.


Timecode and Genlock

The PXW-X200 is equipped with timecode input/output (selectable) and genlock input interfaces. These interfaces are useful when shooting with multiple camcorders. The video signal timing and the timecode can be synchronized among the camcorders, and this helps when assembling video clips from multiple camcorders in the editing process.


GPS functionality*

The PXW-X200 is equipped with a GPS device. The GPS data is automatically recorded in two file locations.
* This function requires a firmware upgrade.
