Sony Unveils Live Production System with Features and Performance to Meet the Requirements of HD Video Production

Date: 10/09/2012

Sony Unveils Live Production System with Features and Performance to Meet the Requirements of HD Video Production

Sony has unveiled new HD live production products, including dual-format cameras, CCUs and switchers, with features and performance that fully satisfy the demanding requirements of HD video production. The new offerings make up a powerful live production system that is ideal for broadcasters, cable TV networks, production houses or OB service providers that are looking for a small-to-mid-sized system which incorporates future-proof, state-of-the-art technology.

 This new system expands Sonys lineup of live production systems, which are already in use by broadcast stations all over the world, affording users considerable choices in configuring systems to meet their needs. This new range of live production solutions offer a variety of key functionalities, while maintaining the concept and reliability of Sonys flagship models such as the HDC-2000 studio camera series and the MVS-8000 switcher series.

 The new live production products include the HDC-1700 dual-format HD camera series, HDCU-1700 camera control unit and the MVS-6530/6520 multi-format switchers. These new solutions feature compact form factors and deliver high productivity in supporting live high-definition or standard-definition signals. It is the perfect system for live events, multi-camera production and green screen compositing. Ease of installation and operation also enhance the quality of this system.

Live production has never been more fast-paced and dynamic than in recent times. Broadcast studios, newsrooms and OB platforms are demanding live production solutions that work reliably and efficiently while supporting a variety of production and format requirements, said Claus Pfeifer, Strategic Marketing Manager, Sony Europe. We have designed our new live production system to be a worthwhile investment for our customers one that they can trust and will address issues of operational ease, space and cost. We are confident that our solutions will help ensure the sustained success of our customers live production projects.

HDC-1700 Dual-Format HD Camera Series

 The HDC-1700 dual-format HD camera series offers a broader choice of interlaces and progressive formats, much greater picture quality and enhanced operational flexibility. The cameras are equipped with sophisticated three-chip 2/3-inch CCDs and the latest DSP with 16-bit A/D converters to provide superior picture quality required by broadcast stations. They are also incredibly sensitive and enable operators to produce high picture quality and details unlike any other system cameras in the market. The CCD used can accommodate the popular interlace and progressive scan formats for mainstream broadcast productions including 1080/50i/59.94i as well as 720/50P/59.94P images. Numerous accessories available to the HDC-2000/1000 series can also be utilised such as HD viewfinders and large lens adaptors.

 The HDC-1700 camera series provides digital transmission using SMPTE standard fibre optic cable to transmit high-quality digital data over long distances. The cameras also provide HD SDI outputs and digitally down-converted SDI or analogue composite output. In addition, viewfinder signals with characters can be output from the SDI output connector, granting camera operators additional convenience.

An included digital spirit level measures the tilt angle and displays it on the viewfinder and monitor, so operators can easily keep their cameras horizontal while shooting. In addition, the sturdy magnesium die-cast body of the HDC-1700 camera means it readily withstands intense movement, even under the toughest shooting conditions.

HDCU-1700 Camera Control Unit

The HDCU-1700 camera control unit is a compact 3U half-rack control unit designed for use with the HDC-1700 camera series. The HDCU-1700 is equipped with a range of built-in interfaces such as HD-SDI/SD-SDI outputs, HD/SD return inputs, and a down-converted analogue composite monitor output. The digital optical fibre transmission system used in the unit maintains the high picture quality of the camera across single cable runs of up to 2000 metres.

MVS-6530/6520 Multi-Format Switchers

The new MVS-6530/6520 switchers inherit an array of features and technologies from the renowned MVS switcher series, leveraging years of industry experience at the highest levels. The MVS-6530/6520 models are available in 3 and 2 M/E configurations and are ideal for live production at broadcasting studios and relay vehicles.

The new models offer the perfect balance between size and specification with chroma-key functionality, resizers and colour correction. They cater for production needs starting at 32 inputs / 16 outputs 2ME (MVS-6520) and up to 48 inputs / 32 outputs 3ME (MVS-6530). The MVS-6530 is equipped with 16 keyers, while the MVS-6520 is equipped with 8 keyers, allowing sophisticated layering from each M/E.

Separate from the main fader, each keyer has its own auto-transition controls, which allow users to insert or remove keys on an individual basis with independent wipes, DME wipes, and dissolves. For further flexibility, each keyer in every M/E also offers chroma-keying and colour vector keying, eliminating restrictions of selectable key types. These fully-featured M/Es allow total interoperability of effects on all M/Es.

The resizer function allows superb simple 2.5D DME effects to be supported through 8 out of 16 keyers of the MVS-6530, and 4 out of 8 keyers of the MVS-6520. A variety of effects such as Mosaic and Defocus can be applied to resized images. All these effects can be created without the use of an external DME, bringing great advantages for both simple operation and minimised system cost.

The MVS-6530/6520 switchers possess a rich feature set including a two-channel multiviewer output, with a choice of 10 or 4-way split display, saving space on additional monitoring plus offering an easier set-up and overall cost reduction. Other features include an AUX transition capability that allows users to mix transitions using AUX output, and newly designed ICP-6530/6520 control panels which include colour cross-point patterns ideal for grouping and high-visibility OLED source-name displays. These help the operator to stay informed at all times of cross-point, button assignments and source type group.

The new products will be available from September (HDC-1700) and October 2012 (MVS-6530/6520).

Sony will be exhibiting at IBC2012 in Hall 12, stand number 12.A10. For more information, please go to the Sony IBC2012 website www.pro.sony.eu/ibc
