Broadcast RF, specialist rental equipment provider of radio cameras for live broadcast, has announced the first ever UHD radio camera system packaged for hire, and available now.
The 4KRF system comprises of a Sony F55 camera to which Broadcast RF has added a full transmit and receive system for professional live broadcast. It is offered with technical support if required for live events.
Scoring another first, it has also used the 4KRF system on a live helicopter downlink, working with Aerial Camera Systems (ACS) to obtain the world’s first live 4K video from the air.
Broadcast RF tested the 4KRF system from a helicopter circling over London to obtain the world’s first live aerial video in 4K. Footage from the tests is available to view at IBC, along with the Sony F55 4KRF handheld camera system.
Chris Brandrick, sales director at Broadcast RF, commented: “We are a hire company so we have to be at the forefront of any technology that manufacturers are bringing out, so we can integrate that into a workable solution that can be used in live OBs. That is what we have done with 4KRF.”
