configured flexibly, using various optional accessories, allowing it to be used as a highly cost-effective plain HD production recorder with less I/Os, or as a full-featured slow replay server supporting both 4K and HD formats, and both SDI and IP interfaces, depending on users requirements.
The PWS-4500 system consists of 4 products â€“ the PWS-4500 Multi Port AV Storage Unit (as a recording deck), the PWSK-4403 USB Control Device (as a control panel with a jog shuttle and a fader lever), the PWS-100PR1 Production Control Station (Workstation that runs production application software) and the PWS-100MG1 Media Gateway Station (Workstation that transfers files). In addition, there are several option boards and software that need to be installed per usersâ€™ requirements.
Moreover, the associated Windowâ€™s 8 PC running application software, the PWA-RCT1 Recording Control Software, which can trigger rec/stop/play/file transfer from a PC, adds operational flexibility to the PWS-4500 so that it can be used as an easy-to-use multi-port 4K/HD production recorder for a wider variety of production usages.

Efficient XAVC video format and Avid DNxHD® codec option*
The server supports the very efficient XAVC codec. In 4K workflows, the unit generates a 4K XAVC MXF file that can be handled easily in non-linear editing systems (NLE).
An advanced 4K/HD XAVC server with IP interfaces
The PWS-4500 is a 4K/HD XAVC server with IP interfaces (PWSK-4506F Networked Media Interface Board is required), which enables IP live production for 4K/HD in combination with BPU-4500 Baseband Processor Unit.
File sharing function via 10G networking (Share Play)
Files can be viewed and shared among servers (PWS-4500) using a 10G network, without having to push/pull files among servers, which leads to more effective workflow.
Easy transcoding between XAVC and XDCAM MPEG2 MXF files
The PWS-4500 working with the PWS-100MG1 Media Gateway Workstation allows you to transcode XAVC MXF to and from XDCAM MPEG2 MXF for accessing media stored on USB Hard Drive, Optical Disc Archive and SxS cards.
The PWA-MGW1B Video Transcode software is required.
HFR support HD 8x slow motion and 4K 2x slow motion
HFR (High Frame Rate) recordings in HD at 3x or 8x slow motion and in 4K 2x with the HDC-4300 system camera, HD 4x or 6x with the PMW-F55 and 4K 2x with the F65.
The PWSL-HF45 HFR software is required to perform 4x/6x/8x slow motion recording.
