"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-X160, 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.
The bite rate of XAVC recording is 111 or 112 Mbps at 1080/59.94i or 50i and 89, or 112 Mbps at 1080/23.98P or 25p. 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 AVCHD in MTS file format, which is compatible with NXCAM camcorders.
MPEG HD 422 gives a high quality image with more detailed colour reproduction, as well as being ideal for chromakeying.
Variable dual ND filter control mechanism The PXW-X160 is equipped with a variable ND Filter function, allowing you to choose either four conventional mechanical ND filter positions or the linear control dial.
The optical filter changes the density electrically, allowing the light amount to be reduced more conveniently. Different from conventional optical ND filters, the ND filter on the PXW-X160 can be controlled from 1/4ND to 1/128ND linearly.
XAVC technology is based on the H.264 standard, which provides an exceptional performance compression technology.
The Rec Trigger signal can be sent through SDI and HDMI to link an external recording device.
