Sony F35 och HDCAM SR uppgraderas
Sony planerar också att senare i år göra det möjligt att spela in 12 bitar på HDCAM SR. Det inkluderar också 2K recording (2048×1080). HDCAM SR är också ett filbaserat inspelningsformat som kan spela in 4K som DPX-filer.
Sony planerar att också göra en Solid State Recorder med en ”on-board recorder” och 1 TB minneskort.
Sony Continues to Enhance Performance of F35 Camera
Enhanced Capabilities Deliver 640 to 1000 Exposure Index and 12-bit Production Workflow
Since its introduction, Sony Electronics’ F35 camera, with its full RGB 4:4:4 capability from image capture to recording has become widely accepted for its high picture quality. The wide dynamic range of the F35 enables scene luminance exposures with a superior Signal to Noise performance, and an 800 Exposure Index can effectively be achieved using S-Log to ensure capturing 12 stops of dynamic range.
The F35 is being enhanced this summer to deliver a more effective exposure index workflow at ratings from 640 to 1000, making it ideal for the demanding lighting conditions of motion picture, episodic television and 3D productions. In order to make the best use of the camera’s superb image quality, Sony also plans to upgrade the F35 to real time 12-bit RGB workflow capabilities later this year with its next-generation HDCAM-SR recoding technology.
“The F35 was designed to grow and adapt with the changing demands of high end production,” said Satoshi Kanemura, vice president, Beyond HD Production Solutions for Sony Electronics. “The enhanced tonal reproduction capabilities of the F35 will help to preserve its place as an industry leader.”
In addition to enhancing the capabilities of the F35, Sony has been actively participating in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Image Interchange Framework (IIF) Project for next generation motion picture workflows and will be supporting IIF and the Academy Color Encoding Specification (ACES).
The F35 has been used on several high-profile motion pictures, and numerous episodic television programs.
SONY UNVEILS NEXT GENERATION OF HDCAM-SR PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGY
Sony Electronics is unveiling the next generation of its HDCAM-SRTM production technology, with new products and planned upgrades ranging from acquisition and storage to archive and production efficiency.
In addition to the recent announcement of the new SRW-9000 HDCAM-SR camcorder, at NAB Sony will announce the SRW-9000PL, a 35mm imager and PL mount version that offers shooters more image creation options. Both cameras will also adapt to future file-based production with the planned delivery of new SR memory solid- state media.
“HDCAM-SR technology now meets the current and future needs of high-end cinematic and TV broadcast production,” said Chris Marchitelli, senior manager for CineAlta and Production Systems for Sony Electronics. “SR is already file-based, and can support data recording in resolutions up to 4K as DPX today. The benefits of non- linear acquisition are now a production requirement. The addition of solid-state media enhances the format’s inherent file-based design and brings SR’s proven quality to an even wider audience.
Both camcorders combine the SR format’s image quality with the versatility of a one-piece camcorder. The SRW-9000 has full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution 2/3-inch CCDs with a 14-bit A/D converter and digital signal processing to capture up to 1080/60P images.
