Sony will use this years Broadcast Video Expo (BVE 2014) as an opportunity to showcase its latest tools for 4K production, with the PXW-Z100, NEX-FS700R and NEX-FS700RH* - which bring 4K production capability to a wide range of production professionals - on show for the first time in the UK. The show will also mark the UK debut of Sonys ground-breaking cloud production system, Ci, as well as the latest technologies in audio, display, and HD acquisition.
4K a reality for all productions
Following its launch at IFA 2013, visitors to the Sony stand at BVE 2014 (F32) will be able to get up close and personal with the PXW-Z100, which is bringing 4K shooting within reach of a much wider audience. With low price points, these new cameras democratise 4K acquisition and ensure that more people can enjoy beautiful 4K images. Alongside these cameras, the NEX-FS700R and FS700RH also add 4K acquisition capability to the hugely popular NEX-FS700, the camera of choice for many production professionals due to its excellent slow motion shooting capability. Sonys F-series large sensor cameras - the PMW-F5 and PMW-F55 4K digital cameras - will also be at the show.
Sonys latest 4K solutions bring high resolution beauty to productions of all sizes. Our range of 4K cameras mean that 4K is now a reality for everyone, from one-man shooting teams to Hollywood blockbusters. AtBVE, visitors will be able to see for themselves the products set to transform the future of production, and we welcome people to come and feel the beauty of 4K first-hand, said David Cheesman, Sales Manager North for Sonys media products.
