1/3-inch CMOS sensor HDV camcorder recording HD / SD

Sony's smallest, lightest yet professional HDV camcorder

Boasting an incredibly small size, and providing HDV with the 1080i standard, the HVR-A1E offers a host of advanced features for professional use. Using technology such as CMOS means the HVR-A1E is an ultra-compact camcorder capable of providing HDV in full 1080 line resolution.

Building on the affordability of HDV, the HVR-A1E provides users a migration path from Standard Definition whilst retaining the qualities of the popular DVCAM range such as ease of use and i.LINK (IEEE1394) connectivity.

Ideal for situations where space is at a premium, the HVR-A1E further broadens the range of HDV tools available to support professional users - it really delivers "HD for Everyone".

  • An affordable way to enjoy High Definition

    The HVR-A1E further supports that HD is for everyone. Through the HDV format Sony's HVR-A1E allows you to capture High Definition pictures on a standard DV format cassette - providing both a highly cost effective format and full 1080 line resolution.

  • The ability to choose the most appropriate recording format for your production

    With the Sony HVR-A1E, you are able to switch between HDV, DVCAM and DV recording giving you full flexibility to record in either Standard or High Definition depending on your requirements. Taking still images is also possible with the HVR-A1E.

  • Designed for professional use

    As a professional, Sony recognises that your needs are different to that of a consumer. As a result the HVR-A1E incorporates a number of specific features to support your needs.

  • Ultra-compact design

    Brings the realms of High definition to an even wider range of production needs. A lightweight and small design mean that HDV shots can be achieved even when space is at a premium.
