Details

The Sony 2/3” 4K HDR GS 3-CMOS Camera is a new multi-format live camera capable of direct 4K signal output in 12G-SDI, carrying the world’s first 2/3-inch 4K global  shutter three CMOS sensors that ensure superb image quality in HD, 4K and HDR live production. The Sony HDC-5500 Camera looks to be a good solution for broadcasters who want a high quality, shoulder mountable camera for sporting events and other live broadcasting applications.Optional software achieving high frame rate up to 4K 2x and HD 8x1 will be available.

The Sony HDC-5500 camera features a 2/3″ 3-CMOS 4K Image Sensors with Global Shutter. By using a powerful 4K video processor, 4K can be output directly from the camera head for live broadcast. The HDC-5500 supports optical fiber transmission as standard, with a SMPTE-standard interface for connection with associated HDCU-5500 series Camera Control Units. It’s quick and easy to reconfigure the camera at any time for fiber, third-generation digital triax or wireless operation with a choice of optional outside panels. Sony also says that the HDC-500 is capable of sending 4K wirelessly. The camera does have the ability to capture high frame rates in HD via an optional paid HD HFR license.

A new benchmark in creative flexibility

The HDC-5500 system camera brings new levels of image quality, portability and creative flexibility to live production environments. Enjoy premium 4K/HD/HDR picture quality – and anticipate tomorrow’s production needs while maintaining full compatibility with today’s workflows and system hardware.

Direct 4K output

A newly-developed on-board signal processor allows the HDC-5500 to output 4K signals directly without the addition of a dedicated external baseband processor unit, saving rack space in the confines of an OB vehicle or studio environment. It can also output 4K signals directly via 12G-SDI. Thanks to an all-new 4K baseband transmission system, the compact camera is ideal for use in steadicam and wireless camera systems

Impressive sensitivity and colour reproduction

Capture premium pictures with Sony’s advanced 2/3-inch 4K CMOS sensor with global shutter technology that eliminates the ‘jello effect’ and banding noise. This allows the HDC-5500 to capture pristine 4K images with exceptionally low noise (-62dB), impressive sensitivity (F10 at 1080/59.94p or F11 at 1080/50p) and high dynamic range, while achieving the ITU-R BT.2020 broadcast standard wide colour space. It’s teamed with a specially developed LSI Digital Signal Processor that fully realises the extraordinary imaging power of this new sensor.

Get the look

Broaden your creative possibilities and achieve exactly the look you want in any shooting situation. Low-key Saturation ensures rich, vibrant colours in low-light areas. Powerful gamma functions give absolute control over fine-tuning tonal values, contrast and detail.

Simultaneous HDR and SDR production

The HDC-5500 can capture High Dynamic Range images, supporting Sony’s SR Live workflow for simultaneous HDR/SDR production with reduced inventory requirements.
