T 2K and 4K RAW
S ony has launched its HXR-IFR5 interface unit, enabling connection between
the NEX-FS700 and Sony’s new AXS-R5 RAW recording system, creating a
powerful combination that takes full advantage of the camcorders 4K imager.
The HXR-IFR5 interface receives the uncompressed bit-stream carrying RAW
sensor data, metadata, time code and start/stop commands from the NEX-
FS700E via 3G-SDI. The FS700 RAW files are recorded to the AXS memory
cards in the AXS-R5 RAW recorder, where they can be screened and converted
using Sony’s free RAW Viewer software.
The unit has an LCD panel for status indication, including record mode, frame
rate, time code, battery and media remaining time. Large tactile buttons control
basic operations, menus and media management. When attached to the
HXR-IFR5, the AXS-R5 can also act as a stand-alone playback unit for reliable
monitoring and review through an on-board HD-SDI 422 output.

With the HXR-IFR5 and firmware upgrade to the NEX-FS700, users can perform
continuous 120/240 fps HFR recording in 2K and 120 fps four-second burst
recording in 4K. The NEX-FS700 even goes beyond 120 frames per second
to 240 fps. Playing back at 240 fps yields compelling slow motion at 1/5 or
1/10 normal speed. Users can also choose 480 and 960 fps burst recording
(at reduced resolution) for even more creative possibilities. HFR is also now
available with S-Log2 gamma (1300% dynamic range) and 709 (800% dynamic
range). The HXR-IFR5 also allows the use of compatible media, file naming conventions,
metadata and RAW workflow used by Sonys PMW-F55 and PMW-F5 CineAlta
The HXR-IFR5 2K/4K RAW interface unit will be available in June for a
suggested list price of 2500 Euros.
