The PWS-4500 is capable of recoding up to four 4K video signals/eight HD video signals and 16 audio channels. It can simultaneously create and record HD files from a 4K camera and with additional software. A full HD picture can be cut out from up to 3 recorded 4K sources.
A great choice for live sports production, the PWS-4500 supports all High Frame Rate standards, from 3x up to the new 8x speed and 4K 2x. So now you can record HFR feeds from our live camera systems, for instantaneous replay in silk-smooth slow motion.
Records 4K HDR or HD content using the ultra-efficient XAVC codec, delivering supreme picture quality with smaller file sizes. In 4K workflows, the server generates a single 4K XAVC MXF file that’s easily handled by today’s non-linear editing systems. And for extra flexibility in HD production there are Avid DNxHD® and Apple ProRes codec options, too.
Clips recorded on the PWS-4500 can be shared with up to ten connected servers over a 10 GbE network using the new Share Play feature – with no need to push or pull clips between different servers. For example, a PWS-4500 server operator can directly view other network servers’ clips, and playback and output any of these clips from their own local server.
Add the PWS-110MG1 Media Gateway to create workflows for archiving files recorded on the PWS-4500 to networked storage, removable media such as USB HDD or Sony’s Optical Disc Archive. Three 4K streams can be backed up over a 10GbE network in real time. There’s also an option to transcode from and to multiple formats such as XAVC HD MXF, XDCAM MPEG or Avid DNxHD® while archiving and retrieving files.
IP Live meshes smoothly with existing SDI-based production infrastructures, carrying 4K video, audio, reference signals and control data with low latency over a single network cable. Adding an optional Networked Media Interface board allows the PWS-4500 to integrate seamlessly with today’s IP Live production environments, enabling smart new workflow options plus significantly reduced operational costs.
This system is flexible and versatile and with additional software it can enhance the PWS ecosystem.
The PWS-110PR1 allows you to make clips and highlights, the PWA-RCT1 allows you to control recording operations, and the PWS-110MG1 server can integrate with external storage and third-party systems.
With our PWS-110PR1 production control workstation, you can make a clip or a highlight; of course, the video effect and audio editing features are supported. The PWS-110PR1 has a simple, intuitive GUI, and touch-panel operation is also fully supported. With the 4K/HD cutout operation you can choose specific HD areas from 4K content and add metadata.
The PWS-110MG1 Media Gateway Workstation can send the contents of the PWS-4500 to a Sony external storage device or other 3rd systems.
ISO-rec operation, which can export the contents while recording, is available. Simultaneous editing by non-linear system is also available with the PWS-110MG1. Transcoding operation is supported.
With the PWA-RCT1 Record Control Software, cost-effective and easy-to-use 4K and HD production is within reach. The software can start and stop recording from a PC (Windows 10 or 8), as well as playing out, and it can also transfer content to external devices.
