Since bringing the world's first CCD video camera to market, Sony has continued to develop and introduce new digital imaging products, including Handycam and Cyber-shot. It has accumulated extensive experience and a range of technologies to achive high picture quality, which it has applied to the development of CMOS sensor technology and CMOS sensor camera systems. One of the successes to emerge from this work is the CMOS sensor that was used in the DCR-PC1000, launched in 2004 as the world's first consumer digital video camera featuring three CMOS sensors. In 2005 Sony's CMOS sensor was also used as the image sensor in the HDR-HC1 Digital HD "Handycam". The superb images produced by these cameras are proof that despite its compact size, Sony's CMOS sensor yields excellent imaging performance. CMOS sensors made compact HD video cameras a reality.
