Sony’s four new live production system cameras further expand and evolve Sony’s HDC family, which is widely used by broadcasters and media companies across the globe. The next generation of system cameras (HDC-P50, HDC-3500) feature the world’s first 2/3-inch 4K global shutter three CMOS sensor system, and the newly developed global shutter HD HDR optical block (HDC-3100/HDC-3170). The new cameras offer content creators unprecedented flexibility and Sony’s legendary reliability, in addition to the uncompromised, premium picture quality producers expect from Sony solutions.
The new family of system cameras include the HDC-P50 Point of View (POV) system camera, the portable system camera HDC-3500, as well as the affordable Fiber and Triax system cameras, HDC-3100 and HDC-3170. Additionally, Sony has introduced a new Triax Camera Control Unit (CCU), the HDCU-3170, which inherits all the capabilities of the HDCU-3100, launched earlier this year.
“With the launch of our new family of live system cameras, we are providing superb image quality with our new optical system, high mobility through the new POV camera and efficient operation with a rich selection of options to further sustain mainstream HD and 4K live production. Based on customer feedback, we have strengthened our HDC range for HD, 4K and HDR production at multiple production costs, and with choices of infrastructure,” explained Rob Willox, Director of Marketing, Sony Professional Solutions Americas. “We also offer our customers backward compatibility with previous generation fiber systems, while offering new capabilities, such as IP with SMPTE ST2110, 4K and HD HDR to their toolsets.”
The full line up of new system cameras and solutions includes:
All new system cameras also provide “SR Live” HDR workflow to enable simultaneous production of HDR and SDR with one production team. The fiber systems are backwards compatible with the current HDC-2000 infrastructure, which allows users to easily add the new models alongside their current cameras and CCUs.
The new systems announced strengthens and streamlines customers’ operations, keeping Sony’s leading build quality & design philosophy:
All HDC-3000 series cameras and the new HDCU-3170 are planned to be available in October 2018. The HDC-P50 POV system camera is planned to be available in February 2019. To see them live, please visit Sony at IBC in the Elicium Hall, RAI Amsterdam at stand 13.A10.
