HDCU-5500

IP-ready Camera Control Unit (CCU) for HDC-5500 4K/HD system camera
Image of the following product: HDCU-5500

Overview

The HDCU-5500 Camera Control Unit is designed for operation with the Sony HDC-5500 4K/HD system camera. It provides interfaces to external equipment and power supply to the camera in a compact, portable half rack width 3U form factor, which is ideal for OB production environments.

Offering a 12G-SDI and 4K output interface as standard, the CCU also provides a pathway for IP and 12G-SDI capabilities as an option, including IP on HDC Series optical fiber studio cameras.

Combined with the HDC-5500 camera, the HDCU-5500 enables two 4K signal lines of ultra-high bit-rate (UHB) optical fiber transmission, supporting shooting in various capture formats with an additional 4K video trunk line.

IP Tally support (TSL UMD v5.0) is featured as standard, while CCU menu settings can be conveniently adjusted remotely via a network.

Features

Compact body, powerful capability

This CCU realizes 4K and IP in a half-rack size compact body.

Ready for IP

The optional HKCU-SFP50 IP Interface Kit adds ST 2110 4K/HD IP video/audio and IP intercam capabilities.

High-quality long-distance signal transmission

Combined with the optional HKCU-SM50 interface kit, the compact HDCU-5500 can be directly connected using 3G Single Mode Fiber (SMF) for long distance transmission up to 6.21 mi, making it ideal for space-limited operations such as OB trucks.

Ultra-High Bitrate transmission

Newly developed UHB (Ultra-High Bitrate) transmission realizes outstanding 4K picture quality and 4K TRUNK/4K PROMPTER transmission in a single hybrid fiber cable. This allows the 4K system to be expanded in a simple system configuration.

MENU setting from web browser

The CCU supports menu control from a web browser. The status monitoring of multiple CCUs, setting file import/export and remote firmware updates enhance the efficiency and convenience of the operation.

Recording and real-time network transfer

With the recording option HKCU-REC55, the HDCU-5500 can record the live feed inside CCU. The file can be transferred to USB SSD or network storage in real-time during recording. Therefore, when the shooting operation is finished, the file is already transferred to a portable SSD or NAS.
