The word 3CCD (Charge Coupled Device ) Camera really doesn't
tell you much. You can see it advertised on consumer cameras
in stores all around town. 3CCD technology is the latest in devices
that converts light in electronics digital impulses. Compared with
the old 1CCD device, the new 3CCD is based on 3 layers of image acquisition
cells, one for each color component of the white color. This way,
the new 3CCD chip is capable of a much increased noise to signal ratio,
allowing perfect shoots in a reduced light environment. Also the color
depth is more vivid and closer to reality. Of course, there's a lot
of settings in a professional 3CCD camera an operator should to do
in order to take advantage of its all 3CCD features and benefits.
But don't be fooled by the 3CCD logo on a camera or the size of it.
Only the DV tape-recording system can take full advantage of a 3CCD
element. A S-VHS camera can have a 3CCD head, but in this case the
quality that the head provide is too much degraded by the limitation
of the analog recording system like S-VHS, VHS or HI8. Putting a 3CCD
head on a S-VHS camera is like putting a Ferrari engine in a lawn
mower. No match! We at Golden West Digital have properly equipped
ourselves with the best technology available. We invite you once again
to take advantage of our top of the line system by entrusting us with
the video-recording of your once in a life time event.
