Sony HDR-MV1 Music Video Recorder shoots every performance with crisp punchy pictures and studio-quality sound
The new HDR-MV1 Music Video Recorder from Sony lets you shoot and share every performance with crisp, punchy pictures and studio-quality sound to match. Ideal for band rehearsals, practice sessions and live gigs, the slim, portable HDR-MV1 makes a great partner for recording groups, solo voices and instruments. Capturing Full HD video and uncompressed hi-fi stereo digital audio, it’s a huge step up from grabbing muffled, murky clips on your camera phone. The Sony HDR-MV1 with high quality 120-degree X-Y stereo microphone stands proud of the recorder body, guaranteeing superb depth and separation. An on-screen meter allows easy checking and adjustment of mic levels for clear, undistorted recordings. The on-board limiter guards against signal clipping when volume levels start climbing. You can plug in an external microphone or connect instruments directly to capture a totally pure performance.
Vibrant, dynamic sound is matched by pristine video quality to match. From cramped rehearsals to expansive stages: the wide-angle 120-degree Carl Zeiss lens sees the whole scene, so no-one in the band gets left out of the action. The back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor grabs detail-packed Full HD video with extremely low noise.Audio lip sync makes sure that music stays precisely matched to the live view image, with no irritating lag.
Linear PCM recording assures pure, uncompressed sound that’s even better than CD – making the HDR-MV1 ideal as a ‘standalone’ audio recorder even when you don’t need to shoot video. Or if you prefer, switch to web-friendly AAC format that’s great for speedy Internet uploads. There’s also a handy speaker on-board for checking recordings instantly. Built-in Wi-Fi connects the HDR-MV1 with smartphone or tablet for easy wireless uploads of your clips with no PC needed. Just touch the recorder against your NFC-equipped Android device for one-touch sharing (movie only). Even use your mobile as a handy remote to start recording and check camera angles on screen. The new HDR-MV1 Music Video Recorder from Sony will be available in Europe from the end of November 2013.
