Capture the dynamic excitement of live sports in 4K ultra slo-mo with the HDC-4800 4K/HD Ultra High Frame Rate camera system, together with its dedicated 4K Baseband Processor BPU-4800. 4K Ultra HD images at up to 400P/480P (8x 50P/60P) or Full HD at 800P/960P (16x 50P/60P) to reveal split-second action. This all-in-one solution for UHFR recording and playback makes it easier for broadcast production personnel to deliver superb slo-mo coverage of sports and other live events that TV viewing audiences love.


Every split-second of sporting action, captured in 4K

Today’s TV sports fans demand better-looking pictures, revealing every instant of explosive on-pitch action with astonishing clarity, color, and contrast. And you need a high performance ultra slo-mo solution that helps directors and camera crews deliver bigger creative returns faster and more efficiently with fewer operational constraints. Stay ahead of the game with the HDC-4800 4K/HD Ultra High Frame Rate camera system. Teamed with the BPU-4800 4K UHFR Baseband Processor Unit, it’s a complete live solution for 4K Ultra High Frame Rate (UHFR) recording and playback. The HDC-4800 sets the pace in live TV sports production, delivering breathtaking 4K picture quality plus streamlined live operational workflow and familiar ergonomics.


Satisfy your need for speed

Higher frame rates mean smoother, more satisfying ultra slow-motion footage that viewing audiences love. But until now, 4K UHFR record and replay has presented some tough operational challenges in a live sports environment. The HDC-4800 captures flawless, full-resolution 4K UHD images at up to 400P/480P (8x 50P/60P) or Full HD at 800P/960P (16x 50P/60P). Teamed with the BPU-4800 Baseband Processor, it allows 4K HFR data and simultaneous high-quality XAVC recording*, with up to 4 hours record time and no need for a separate record/playback server.


Newly developed 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 motorized dual ND/CC filter that can be operated remotely for variable exposure control.


More color, wider dynamics, greater realism

The newly developed Super 35 mm CMOS sensor and advanced optical system of the HDC-4800 supports the next-generation ITU-R BT.2020 color gamut. Far wider than the range of colors 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 colorful heart of the action by the goal line or at the finishing line.
