Sony introduces an ideal solution for 4K/HD live production, delivering efficient operation and expanding applications in the business and industry market in addition to the content creation applications for broadcast and production.
Enter the world of 4K and HD HDR live production with Sony’s affordable HXC-FB80 studio camera. Ideal for low light productions, with a longer cable extension and extra functionality like paint control.
The HXC-FB80 can be your low cost entry into 4K UHD video broadcast.
The new HXC-FB80 HD Portable Camera as well as the HXC-P70 Multi-Purpose Camera are equipped with three 2/3-inch full-HD ExmorTM CMOS sensors to provide excellent sensitivity – F13 in 50 Hz and F12 in 59.94 Hz in 1080 mode – with a typical signal-to-noise ratio of -60 dB. With sensors common to both the HXC-FB80 and HXC-P70, you can flexibly configure these cameras as required, and you can use a wide range of output formats.
The newly developed 3G platform enhances the HXC-FB80’s capabilities in 1080/50p and 59.94p signal processing while achieving low power consumption.
Furthermore, in combination with the HXCU-FB80 4K/HD Camera Control Unit, the HXC-FB80 offers useful expandability including 4K upscale and HD HDR support (HLG, Hybrid Log-Gamma)* for a future-proof solution. The optional PC-based HZC-RCP5 Remote Control Panel is also available for a simpler application system.
* Supported with the HXC-FB80 and HXCU-FB80. HD HDR support requires firmware upgrade.
The HXC-FB80 gives you a future proofed entry point to the benefits of 4K production. Teamed with the HXCU-FB80 Camera Control Unit, detail-packed 4K resolution (3840 x 2160) images are available – making the HXC-FB80 system ideal for creating content in Ultra HD.
The camera can comfortably output 3G-SDI signals including 1080/50p and 59.94p. The 3G processor can also support 1080/23.92PsF on top of 25PsF and 29.97PsF.
