Australia’s transition from live High Definition to 4K production takes a huge step forward as NEP introduces Sony’s latest 4K broadcast cameras.
The HDC-4300s will feature in HD11, NEP Australia’s first full 4K supertruck, which launches next month.
Demonstrating NEP’s continued investment in the Australian production industry, the HDC-4300 cameras bring unprecedented performance and flexibility to live broadcasts:
• The world’s first three 2/3-inch camera with 4K sensors combine with traditional B4 broadcast lenses.
• High HD frame rates of 2x, 3x, 4x, 6x and 8x to capture all the intricacies of the fastest-moving action.
• Compatible with common Sony accessories including the HDCU-2000 series, viewfinders and RCPs.
NEP Australia’s Director of Technology, Marc Segar, says the new Sony cameras complement HD11’s launch beautifully.
“Our clients look to us for the latest technologies that capture the full impact of live fast-paced action, yet they also expect innovation to work alongside existing broadcast infrastructure. The Sony HDC-4300s fit that bill perfectly.
“We were fortunate to trial the HDC-4300 prototype during NEP’s recent 4K coverage of the Cricket World Cup. The pictures were truly amazing and comparable to the F55 live solution with the amazing convenience of using standard B4 mount broadcast lenses.
“This latest generation camera technology means we can offer native 4K, 4K zoom technology, and high speed acquisition on every camera. They will be a fantastic asset to all our clients as the trend towards live 4K production gathers pace.”
The Sony 4300s join NEP Australia’s recent investment in Sony MVS-8000X 4K switchers and PVM-X300 4K monitors, which will be deployed in HD11.
