Sony announced at IBC 2013 a new set of HD live production solutions consisting of four new studio cameras, the HSC-300R/300RF and HSC-100R/100RF plus the MVS-3000A multi-format switcher, at IBC2013.
The new additions build on the strengths of Sonys existing HSC-300 and HXC-100 system cameras, incorporating the latest generation of 2/3-inch Power HAD FX CCDs for high quality image capture with minimal noise. The HSC-300R/RF models are compatible with the HDLA series of large lens adapters and equipped with Neutral Density (ND) and Colour Correction (CC) dual optical servo-controlled filter wheels. This makes them ideal for customers who produce live broadcasts operated via outside broadcast (OB) vans. The HSC-100R/RF models are compatible with a portable lens and perfect for studio use. To better meet operational requirements across different venues, the new system cameras are equipped for digital triax (HSC-300R and HSC-100R) or optical fibre (HSC-300RF and HSC-100RF) transmissions. The MVS-3000A switcher supports Digital Multi Effects (DME) as well as a wide choice of control panel configurations and broadcast performance features as standard.
