This model utilizes a 3-CMOS chip array. Each is a 1/4” Sony ClearVID CMOS, with 1.2 million gross pixels (1.03 million effective pixels in HDV)
Sony engineers brought 24p into the equation with an effective solution, too, where the vertical resolution is a full 1080p raster, while the sensors pick up 960 horizontal pixels, and this data is then interpolated to the full 1920 resolution in a 4:2:2 color space. The video is then compressed into the normal HDV format at 1440x1080/60i with a 3:2 pulldown, giving the footage the ability to be played back in any Sony HDV gear. Neat trick.
