Sony technology brings the canonization of Blessed John XXIII and John Paul II in 4K

The ceremony to mark the canonization of Blessed John XXIII and John Paul II will take place on 27 April in St Peter's Square, Vatican City, and will be broadcast in 4K Ultra HD using Sony PMW-F55 cameras in a studio set-up. The occasion presents a new and important opportunity to put the revolutionary characteristics of 4K to the test, not only in terms of production but also in terms of enriching the quality of archived content. The event will be produced by the Vatican Television Centre (CTV) in partnership with Sony and Sky Italia, and with technological support from DBW Communication and Eutelsat. The event will be broadcast live in 4K at the Paul VI Audience Hall in the Vatican. Thanks to our partner, Prevost Srl, there will also be a live 3D broadcast of the event in Sotto il Monte Giovanni XXIII, the birthplace of Pope John XXIII, using a Sony SRX-R515P projector. As a result of collaboration between Sony, Sky Italia and Eutelsat, spectators will be able to experience the moment in 3D and feel as if they were in St Peter's Square.

Short film Earth, Air, Fire, Water shows off stunning high frame rate capability of Sonys PMW-F55 camera Posted: 26/09/2013
Short film Earth, Air, Fire, Water shows off stunning high frame rate capability of Sonys PMW-F55 camera

Steve Lawes, the first person in Europe to use Sonys F55 when it launched, commented: Having put the F55 through its paces before, I was delighted to find that the firmware upgrade hasnt affected the cameras usability at all. The most pleasing thing to see was that the camera still shoots full sensor, so the image isnt cropped in any way and the shot we were getting didnt change at all when we switched the frame rate up. This is incredibly useful for filmmakers, as it means theres no need to change the lens or perspective, and you can continue shooting as normal.
