Overview

Simultaneous real-time 4K* HDR and HD SDR streams for SR Live for HDR workflows
The HDRC-4000 HDR production converter unit provides simultaneous real-time streams for multi-purpose 4K HDR (High Dynamic Range) live production as part of powerful Sony SR Live for HDR workflows. The unit can output a variety of video signals, including 4K HDR (S-Log3, BT.2020), HD HDR, 4K SDR and HD SDR, without loss. The compact 1.5RU chassis is ideal for operation in an outside broadcast environment. The AIR (Artistic Intent Rendering) Matching function faithfully retains the producer’s artistic intent to any distribution format while achieving greater workflow efficiency. The unit can also be controlled by the MSU-1000/1500 and RCP-1500 series remote controllers.

* 4K QFHD (3840 x 2160) 59.94p/50p supported by Version 1.0 software. Other 4K formats supported in future software updates.
Real-time conversion of both 4K HDR and HD HDR
Simultaneous output of 4K HDR (S-Log3, BT.2020), HD HDR, 4K SDR and HD SDR.
AIR Matching function to retain artistic intent across distribution platforms
AIR (Artistic Intent Rendering) Matching function retains the producer’s artistic intent while converting the intermediate production format to any desired distribution format.
Enables powerful SR Live for HDR workflows
Compact unit forms part of Sony’s powerful SR Live for HDR production environment controllable with existing MSU-1000/1500 and RCP-1500 series remote controllers.

Features

Real-time conversion of both 4K HDR and HD HDR
The HDRC-4000 offers multiple signal conversion capabilities to accommodate various distribution standards – spatial conversion, HDR/SDR conversion, color space conversion, and OETF (opto-electronic transfer function) conversion. The unit supports HD (1920 x 1080) 59.94p/50p/59.94i/50i and 4K (3840 x 2160) 59.94p/50p input formats with Version 1.0 software. Other 4K formats will be supported in future software updates.
AIR Matching function to retain artistic intent across distribution platforms
AIR (Artistic Intent Rendering) Matching function enables conversion of the intermediate production master (Sony recommends using 4K UHD resolution, S-Log3 OETF and BT.2020 color space for HDR production) to any desired distribution format, such as HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma), PQ (Perceptual Quantizer), or SDR on an “as-seen” basis. With this feature turned on, the HDRC-4000 faithfully retains the producer’s creative/artistic intent – in other words, the final look and feel of the picture – onto the master monitor in the OB truck/master control room in the process of converting the intermediate production master to any desired distribution master format for broadcast.
Compact design ideal for outside broadcast operations
The compact 1.5RU chassis provides four 3G-SDI inputs/outputs, switchable either to 4K or HD, as well as supporting 16-channel embedded audio.
