usual production staff
Ultra High Frame Rate recording and playback for live sports has always placed big demands on production resources for broadcasters and programme makers. And the technical challenges are multiplied in today’s 4K world.
Now there’s an all-in one solution for UHFR recording and playback that’s quick and simple to deploy – allowing your usual production personnel to deliver even more amazing images.
With the BPU-4800, one server operator can handle super slo-mo and normal speed highlights. Enjoy long record times and real-time file transfers, with no need for an additional UHFR data transfer operator.
Super 35mm imager
The camera’s large Super 35mm CMOS sensor lets the HDC-4800 take full advantage of PL mount lenses, plus support for B4 lenses via an optional adaptor for HD production. You’ll enjoy stunning 4K images that capture fast-moving sports with incredible definition. For extra operational convenience, there’s a motorised dual ND/CC filter that can be operated remotely for variable exposure control.
More colour, wider dynamics, greater realism
The newly developed Super 35mm CMOS sensor and advanced optical system of the HDC-4800 supports the next-generation ITU-R BT.2020 colour gamut. Far wider than the range of colours displayed in traditional TV broadcasts, this expanded gamut gives directors a dramatically broadened tonal palette in live broadcasts.
What’s more, the HDC-4800 can capture content in HDR (High Dynamic Range), with an expanded range of brightness levels bringing new levels of impact and realism to live sports footage.
You’ll instantly see the difference with vibrant, true-to-life Ultra High Frame Rate images, drawing TV viewers right into the colourful heart of the action by the goalmouth or at the finishing line.
Ultra High Frame Rate BPU and replay server
A perfect complement for the HDC-4800, the BPU-4800 combines Baseband Processing and UHFR server functions in a single, compact rack-mounting unit.
The BPU-4800 handles recording and playback of all your UHFR content, with no need for a separate server dedicated for ultra slo-mo, giving up to four hours 4K UHFR storage.
Integration with the PWS-4500 through the real-time SharePlay network also allows fast, seamless highlight editing.
Getting closer to the action at Super Bowl 50
With technical support from broadcast services specialist provider NEP, CBS Sports successfully trialled the HDC-4800 to capture sparkling 4K UHFR (8x) images at the 50th NFL Super Bowl. The camera’s HD cutout capability allowed a server operator to zoom in and instantly create high-definition close-ups from 4K footage.
“This cam and replay are really awesome” comments Ken Aagaard, Senior Vice President, CBS Sports. “Basically so good it just looks like it was shot by an intuitive cam op!"
