Sony has introduced a number of new IP Live production solutions, including two new IP extension adapters – one for cameras and another for camera control units (CCU).
The company has launched two new remote-control panels for Live Element Orchestrator, as well as an SMPTE ST 2110 interface board for its PWS-4500 4K/HD live production server.
The new IP extension adapters are one third of the standard width and allow advanced IP Live Remote Production and Resource sharing, implementing new workflow patterns for the existing HDC system camera series.
The HDCE-TX30 enables direct remote production capability for any of the HDC-2500, HDC-3100 and HDC-3500 camera heads, by offering instant SMPTE ST2110 IP Live Network connectivity, including all necessary production functions, such as IP Tally and remote-control capability.
HDCE-RX30 is a complementary solution to HDCE-TX30, offers native SMPTE ST2110 IP Live Network connectivity. It allows users to route any camera head to any HDCU-2500, HDCU-3100 or HDCU-3500 CCU. It also provides SDI and IP mixed system configurations as well as 4K/HD, HDR/SDR mixed operation based in SDI.
Sony has also introduced a new optional interface board titled PWSK-4509. It offers SMPTE ST 2110 support for the 4K/HD live production server PWS-4500. The addition of the interface board allows the server to connect with an IP live production environment and enables it to receive and transmit multiple video and audio signals with 25 GbE (SFP28) via an IP network.
