The CBK-WA100 adapter connects directly to a camera and allows XAVC proxy files to be created and then saved on an SD card in the adapter. Then the adapter is able to upload the proxy content and the original high-resolution content via 3G/4G/LTE/Wireless LAN* to a broadcast station, on premise server or to a cloud environment.
By supporting Wi-Fi connectivity, the CBK-WA100 allows tablets or smartphones to interact with it and control it via Sony’s Content Browser Mobile application. This connectivity for XDCAM camcorders allows users on their mobile device to remotely control the camera, logging metadata on set and reviewing content without having to connect a monitor to the camcorder.
* For wireless transmission, 3G/4G/LTE/Wireless LAN dongles are necessary. For Wireless LAN dongle, Sony’s “IFU-WLM3”, 2.4GHz USB dongle is supplied. As for the Modem dongle, recommended model differs country by country depending on carrier.
