The PWS-4400 is a cost effective, next-generation solution for 4K live production, HFR (High Frame Rate) HD and Slow-Motion replay.
Suitable for both 4K and HD production, this unit can record 4K and HD video using as many as four 4K channels using the very efficient XAVC video format. In 4K workflow, a 4K XAVC file is generated and is easily handled in non-linear editing systems (NLE). A smooth and intuitive user interface is provided by the PWA-PRC1 Production Control software along with touch panel operation and a dedicated controller. 4K and HD video clips can be transferred directly to/from external recording media using the PWA-MGW1 Media Gateway application.

4K Stitch support
With a single PWS-4400 it is possible to record and playback two 4K signals. This makes it perfect for the Sony PWA-4KS 4K Stitch application. 4K Stitch combines the output of two 4K cameras to create an 8K x 2K video canvas. Up to three virtual HD cameras can be derived using this technology with full Pan, Scan, and Zoom capabilities.
