Sony 4K sensor for gorgeous, super-sampled HD, 2K and 4K

The PMW-F55 Live System combines the PMW-F55 4K Super 35mm single sensor camera together with the CA-4000 4K fibre transmission camera system adaptor and BPU-4000 baseband processor unit. It is ideal for any live production application, such as sports, concerts and events, or studio productions.

The PMW-F55 Live System provides cameramen with the same variety of components as any Sony HD system camera, including a wide choice of viewfinders with a unique Focus Assist function specially designed for 4K live operations, video returns, tally, intercom and zoom and focus controls. Video technicians ("aders") operate in the control room with traditional RCP/MSU control panels and keep all the standard operations as with any Sony HD studio camera. All parameters are remotely available to render the best picture in any environment.

With the variety of outputs on the BPU-4000 you can have a simultaneous 4K and HD live operation, matching Sony HDC Series cameras perfectly. The PMW-F55 Live System also offers the capability to create HD cut outs from the 4K resolution images (with the SZC-2001 licence option for the BPU-4000) or operate as a 4x or 6x speed HD slow-motion camera (with the SZC-2002 licence option for the BPU-4000).
