Public Croatian broadcaster HRT has bought 44 Sony PMW-400 XDCAM camcorders on which to standardise its news production in HD. Signing the deal at IBC, CTO Dusko Zimonja said: “HRT is committed to moving towards HD content production and this agreement represents the realisation of our plan to move our news production to deliver outstanding HD news-broadcasts to viewers.
By combining the high quality needed for HD broadcast within an efficient, established workflow, the PMW-400 gives us a powerful combination of price and performance that will underpin our transition to HD.”
The investment also included two channel digital wireless audio with each camera equipped with Sony’s DWX wireless microphone package. Delivery was confirmed at the show through local Sony Partner Audio Video Consulting (AVC). Pictured: Dusko Zimonja and Koki Kato, senior manager, product planning and marketing development, Sony.
