Your Audience Awaits
Capturing your musical creations in high-quality sound and HD Video is no longer a privilege exclusive to professional musicians with bottomless budgets. Now at the single click of a button, you can record your next jam session with CD-quality audio in uncompressed Linear PCM or versatile, Internet-ready AAC with the new Music Video Recorder from Sony. And sound is only half the story: with a 120° wide-angle lens and an advanced low light sensor, Music Video Recorder is the perfect way to capture the entire essence of every performance.
Powerful Recording Versatility
Enjoy the flexibility of recording in either uncompressed Linear PCM (LPCM) or Internet-ready AAC sound. LPCM (44.1kHz, 16 bit) gives you the rich, high-resolution CD-quality sound with lifelike depth and tone, while AAC (48kHz, 128kbps) is the ideal digital format for sharing your music across mobile devices and the Internet.
Realistic Stereo Sound
Record stunning stereo sound through Music Video Recorder's innovative 120° dual wide-angle microphone array. Cover the left, right and center of a performance from one point for truly realistic stereo sound that microphones on smartphones and conventional camcorders can't begin to match.
Record Stunning Videos in Low Light Situations
Capture clear facial expressions and dynamic action without excessive lighting disrupting the ambiance of an intimate performance thanks to Sony's Exmor R® CMOS sensor. Improved sensor technology receives incoming light more efficiently to take bright, beautiful images even in dark studios, dim cafes, grand stages or almost anywhere else the music moves you. Then share every second of the glorious high-quality 1920x1080/30p HD video with your PC, Mac® computer, or on the Internet through the convenient MP4 file format.
Shoot Big Scenes in Small Places
Get the entire band and stage in the shot from close distances without having to step back via the 120° wide angle professional-quality Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar® lens. Whether it's a large group in a small room, a confined recording studio, or an expansive outdoor scene, everyone will get their time in the spotlight in high-quality resolution, contrast and color coverage.
Power Your Performance
Charge your camera and view your footage simultaneously when you connect your Music Video Recorder to a computer through the handy double-duty USB port. Not only that, with an optional AC adapter (AC-UD11) you can keep shooting while the supplied battery replenishes itself to ensure that you never miss that critical shot or note.
Polished Playback Every Time
Eliminate the lag between audio and video with Audio Lip Sync. Harmonize audio and video tracks during editing and postproduction when you view on other devices to produce that professional look and sound that the music world loves.
