Sony BPU-4500A (BPU_4500A, BPU/4500A, BPU_4500A) 4K/HD baseband processor unit for IP network production

An ideal partner for the PWS-4500 4K/HD multi-port live server, the BPU-4500A baseband processor routes 4K/HD signals from camera systems such as the HDC-4300, allowing long-distance signal transmission using standard SMPTE fibre cables or a single mode fibre solution.

If IP transmission is required, the BPU-4500A can easily be upgraded with a choice of optional boards according to the desired IP standard. Depending on production requirements, the BPU-4500A can be equipped with Sony’s Networked Media Interface by installing an optional SKC-IP45AF Networked Media Interface kit. It can also be made compliant with SMPTE ST 2110 standard by adding the optional SKC-4001 Interface kit. 

Two configurable output slots satisfy the needs of any production format, be it HD or 4K/UHD, SDR or HDR (S-LOG3 and HLG OETF), ITU-709R or BT2020 colour space. 

The BPU-4500A can handle 12G-SDI signals as standard, allowing easy integration of 4K/UHD signals into an existing SDI infrastructure without any additional hardware costs. It can also connect to an HDCU-2000 Series or HDCU-3100 Series Camera Control Unit to form a 4K multi-camera system, supplying power to the camera and transferring various signals (intercom, tally, prompter, audio, etc). 

The BPU-4500A generates 4K and HD signals at a similar colour matrix to match to the current Sony HD camera system. Working with the HDCU-2000/2500 Camera Control Units permits the same system operation as the current HDC camera system, including Genlock, Return Video signal, Tally, Intercom and Sony RCPs/MSUs, which provides a future-proofed migration path for customers. 

A slo-mo output is available for 4K/UHD signals or HD-HFR signals (up to 8x speed in HD: 480p frames/sec).
