At SMPTE 2011 Sony will hold its Australian launch of reference and production monitoring
products, expanded workflows, 4K production tools and 3D for the field.
Sony will also show camcorder, system camera and production products in conjunction with dealer partners Videocraft and Lemac, plus give a demonstration of Sony’s capabilities in Gearhouse Broadcast’s HD1 outside broadcast vehicle.
The HXC-D70 camera, a more affordable option for live HD production systems, has a 2/3-inch full HD Exmor 3 CMOS image sensor for low-light shooting. It has a focus assist function with a range of parameters. The compact MCS-8M vision switcher has been released with it. The PMW-F3 Super 35mm camcorde is another new large sensor model from Sony. New functions are an option for RGB 4:4:4 and S-LOG output, a 3D-link capability, and both wide angle and high power zoom lenses. The camcorder is also suited for use in 3D rigs able to support the camera’s size.
