Don’t get left behind. Tell your story as it’s happening with XDCAM air — the cloud-based workflow service for news production that’s made to satisfy today’s Internet-first audiences.
XDCAM air is the flexible bridge between field-based camcorders and your studio infrastructure, orchestrating the seamless exchange of live video, media files, and project metadata. So you can focus on your story, save precious time, and cut costs.
Sony’s XDCAM air Professional Cloud Service for News Production delivers live streaming and/or file transfer directly from the field and combines this with advanced cloud-based tools to instantly connect your news production team with the day’s hot stories.
XDCAM Pocket turns your phone into a cloud-ready XDCAM camcorder. This intuitive mobile app streams content shot with smartphones back to base, using sophisticated QoS technology for better-looking pictures and fewer dropouts over cellular LTE networks.
Utilize the transmission method that’s best suited to your environment: wireless, cellular, dual-link cellular, AVC (H.264), and HEVC (H.265*). XDCAM air supports point-to-point and multi-point live streaming, file transfer, as well as live streaming or file transfer directly to social media.
Stay ahead of the game. XDCAM air sends story information and planning metadata from your Newsroom Computer System straight to compatible Sony cameras out in the field.
After shooting, everything’s ingested automatically to your Media Asset Management (MAM) system. So you can save time, manual effort—and money—to build stories faster and more efficiently than ever before.
Use XDCAM air through its own web interfaces — or integrate via open API into your existing production environment.
XDCAM air offers a fully open API that supports interfaces with commonly used News Room Computer Systems, News Production Systems and Ingest Systems.
We also offer full panel integration of our CMS with Adobe Premiere Pro so that you can browse and select content from XDCAM air directly from the editing software.
Sony’s XDCAM air Professional Cloud Service harnesses the best of cloud and wireless streaming technologies to improve your operations, maximizing your production productivity to let you start telling your stories as they’re happening.
The XDCAM air Metadata license cuts down on search times by pushing NRCS planning data directly to the camera. Captured footage is subsequently tagged in the camera with relevant metadata for easy search and find.
XDCAM air’s Content Management System (CMS) sits in the cloud facilitating search, browse, logging, storyboard creation, and publishing to social media from anywhere — whether you’re in the field, in a hotel room, or at the station.
