The Barber of Seville becomes the first opera to be filmed with Sonys 4K High Dynamic Range technology

After shooting the first real 4K HDR test at the 2015 TIM Cup final between Juventus and Lazio, Sony and DBW Communication have achieved another important technological first, this time in the context of opera music. Gioacchino Rossini's masterpiece, the comic opera "The Barber of Seville", has become the first opera in the world to be filmed in the 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) format. The production was staged last July at the Teatro Regio in Turin, among the world's most important opera houses and one of the largest and most historic in Italy. For the shoot, Sony's PMW-F55 cameras were used in live mode, positioned at eight filming points and all equipped with 4K Prime Lenses the same as the ones used by director Jacques Audiard for his most recent film "Dheepan", which won the Palme d'Or at the last Cannes Film Festival.

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.
