Sony is announcing five key additions to its line up of 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) production equipment for content and live production.
The expanded line includes a new system 4K 8x High Speed camera, the HDC-4800, three new switchers, the XVS-6000, XVS-7000, XVS-8000, and a new client monitor, the PVM-X550. Further enhancements have also been made to the feature set of the HDC-4300 camera system, introduced at NAB last year as the world’s first camera to use three 2/3-inch 4K image sensors, which is also HDR-capable and fully compatible with a wide range of existing products and production workflows. Sony will demonstrate these new 4K HDR solutions as part of its exhibit setup at NAB 2016.
Sony’s HDC-4800 is planned to be available in August 2016. The PVM-X550 is planned to be available in summer 2016 and the XVS-6000 and XVS-7000 are expected in fall 2016. The XVS-8000 is planned to be available in May 2016.
