These new technologies connect people across locations to support new remote and real-time realities.

Sony is offering a series of new upgrades and innovations across the full range of its professional media products and solutions aligned with leading industry trends focused on Internet Protocol (IP), Cloud and Imaging. The market transformation is fueled by the need to produce high quality content from any location, through scalable and efficient workflows.

For the last year, in the face of unprecedented circumstances, Sony has been working tirelessly to match the changes in market needs with useful and pragmatic innovations, said Theresa Alesso, Pro Division President, Sony Electronics Inc. As remote, distributed production coupled with efficient workflows become the standard way of working, we will continue to introduce technology based around IP, Cloud, AI, and Imaging quality that enables customers to transform their business.

Sony, a pioneer in IP, has delivered IP Live production systems to more than 120 facilities and outside broadcasting (OB) trucks worldwide as of April 2021, including customers such as Polsat and University of Alabama. Over the last year, there has been an increased demand for a more holistic, end-to-end IP approach. In parallel, the appetite for workflow efficiency is also pushing many broadcasters and production companies to mandate an IP infrastructure for their productions.

With this in mind, Sony is announcing two compact IP extension adapters, the HDCE-TX50 and the HDCE-RX50 which will provide the current HDC camera line-up with IP capability in 4K. With their HFR features allowing up to 6x slow motion in HD, when using with HDC-5500 system camera and an optional license, HZC-HFR50, these adapters are expected to be indispensable for efficient resource and asset sharing for existing HDC users. Both models are planned to be available in December 2021.

To respond to the demand for IP beyond 4K, Sony is also announcing a new 8K ST 2110 Interface option board and SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) Agent Software, both expected to be available in October 2021. Adding to the CCU of the UHC-8300 8K camera system, the new Interface board, UKCU-8001, enables IP operation for the 8K system. Combined with SNMP Agent Software, UZCU-SNMP80, IP operation status monitoring and remote settings for this option board will also be possible. This new option board has already been adopted by China Central Television, to respond to the increasing demand for 8K in China.

For customers looking to take advantage of IP technology to transform their production, Sony's IP Live production platform, which now includes Nevion's orchestration and SDN control software, VideoIPath, provides the means to create reliable, scalable and flexible IP systems for convergent LAN/WAN infrastructures. The new version 3.0 firmware update of Sony's IP Live System Manager (LSM), planned for May 2021, includes a south-bound interface to VideoIPath, thereby augmenting its existing broadcast control capabilities with VideoIPath's network orchestration. Sony's NXLK-IP50Y and NXLK-IP51Y SDI-IP converter boards, which enables SDI devices to connect to IP networks, are expected to be updated in September 2021 to support NMOS (Networked Media Open Specifications), enabling them to be controlled by VideoIPath. Both enhancements will allow customers to build more robust IP systems with an optimized cost.

All of the above new offerings support worldwide standards and specifications including SMPTE ST 2110 and AMWA NMOS.

Expansion of Remote Production

Sony recently expanded the XVS series of switchers with the introduction of the XVS-G1, a 4K-ready, company, entry-level option. Now, the rest of the line-up (XVS-9000, XVS-8000, XVS-7000 and XVS-6000) is enhancing its functionality through a new firmware update. Version 3.6, which is planned to be available in June 2021, provides an Inter-Group Connection function that will connect multiple switcher control stations, making it particularly beneficial for users needing scalable and flexible systems in multi-studios and remote setups. It also includes HDR conversion on 12G-SDI input through an optional license.

In order to meet the accelerated demand for remote environments, the BRC-X400, SRG-X400, SRG-X120 cameras will support the SRT protocol, bringing high quality video transmission with low latency, with firmware version 3.0, expected in June 2021. Sony's unique Adaptive Rate Control functi
