Sony’s playbook for next-generation broadcasting

Punch your ticket for the new era in sports broadcasting. Get 16x Super Slow Motion in HD and 8x 4K with full-quality color shading. Record at 10-bit quality for spectacular High Dynamic Range. Empower a single operator to control up to twelve IP networked instant replay servers. And achieve entirely new switching configurations with IP Live. For 4K, High Frame Rate, Wide Color Gamut, High Dynamic Range, and IP Live production at every level of the game, put Sony on your team.

4K. Not Faux K.

The world’s first 2/3-inch three-chip camera with true 4K image sensors, Sony’s HDC-4300 revolutionized sports broadcasting.
And we didn’t stop there. The new HDC-P43 encapsulates this performance in a compact, pan/tilt-ready chassis, while the
HDC-4800 goes even further with up to 16x Super Slow Motion
in HD and up to 8x in 4K.

High Dynamic Range

With High Dynamic Range (HDR) broadcasting, you’ll finally be able to capture the brilliant sunlight of day games without losing detail in the stadium shadows. You’ll handle specular reflections on water or glass without clipping. And your television audiences will feel that much closer to the action. Sony enables you to achieve HDR – and its companion Wide Color Gamut – in game-changing cameras, 10-bit recording servers, switchers and monitors.

The Share Play advantage

Sony’s Share Play enables a single operator to view, play back and output clips recorded on up to twelve PWS-4500 servers. With Sony’s IP Live networking, these clips play directly from the local server without the need to transfer content between servers. It’s a cost effective way to share content and expand your super slow motion coverage. And there are no laborious file transfers, just smooth, instant, unified control!

Switch to Sony

HD or 4K? Ready! SDI or IP? Ready! While Sony’s XVS Series switchers are thoroughly grounded in the HD-SDI broadcast infrastructure of today, they’re also ready for the IP Live infrastructure of tomorrow. Operating in 4K, you still get up to 5 Mix/Effect banks, 40 inputs, 12 assignable outputs and 20 keyers.
