What will you learn

You will learn how to operate, support and troubleshoot the HDC-P1 high definition digital camera. The course will also show you how to set up a camera system based on an HDC-P1 and compatible Sony Master Setup Unit and Remote Control Panel (MSU/RCP). By the end of this course you will be able to keep an HDC-P1 based camera system going on a day-to-day basis and solve basic faults and problems. You will also understand system signal flow be able to diagnose possible problem in the system and its basic components

Who should attend

This course is designed for those with a good knowledge of television engineering and production processes with some knowledge or experience of cameras, wishing to support, troubleshoot or maintain the HDC-P1 camera chain. 

Course contents

Camera theory and principles

This part of the course describes the principle of CCD sensors, how the image is sensed read from the sensor and processed into the final video signal.

HD Principles

This part of the course briefly covers the principles of high definition television, including the various standards and modes supported by this camera.

An overview of the system

This part of the course describes the interconnection of the camera system, the different options and configurations. This will include the MSU/RCP and the CNU camera network system and the use of Ethernet to form a camera network.

Basic operation

This part of the course explains how to correctly operate the controls.

RCP operation

A comprehensive description of RCP operation and menus and how they are used for both engineering adjustment and aesthetic control is covered in this section.

MSU Operation

The MSU is used to both adjust the look of the picture and configure the system. Much of the control is similar to RCP control so this section focuses on the difference in menu structure and those facilities not available from the RCP.

Camera System Alignment

This part of the course explains how to align the HDC-P1 camera, including principles and various tips.

Signal flow and board functionality

This part of the course explains the signal flow from CCD to the output, and the entire control chain from MSU and RCP to the camera.
