Delivering uncompromised image quality, the HDC-4300 integrates seamlessly with HD infrastructures and accessories as well as the world’s most advanced 4K Live Production workflows. Optional software upgrades let you add amazing 4K 2x and HD 8x super slow motion and 4K image capture to standard HD outputs. All the flexibility and control you demand are right there in a single high-performance platform.
Seamless integration with existing workflows
The HDC-4300 joins Sony’s widely acclaimed HDC Series family of Live Production solutions. Operation is reassuringly familiar to operators and cameramen, so you’re up and running faster without expensive re-training.
The HDC-4300 is fully compatible with a wide range of existing products and workflows, including viewfinders, large lens adaptors and camera control units. There’s no need for investment in additional accessories, keeping costs and inventory down.
Amazing colour and imagery with next-generation innovation
Featured in the HDC-4300, cutting-edge Sony technological innovation and unparalleled hands-on Live Production experience are crystallised in the design of the world’s first three 2/3-inch 4K imaging device. This advanced optical system supports the next-generation ITU-R BT.2020 colour gamut, enabling more precise colour reproduction in live broadcasts. You’ll see the difference with vibrant, true-to-life images that make viewers feel as if they’re actually there.
Direct installation of B4-mount lenses
Thanks to the 2/3-inch camera mount, the HDC-4300 works directly with B4 lenses. The B4-mount supports both HD and 4K lenses, allowing you to use B4-mount high power large lenses to capture sports scenes with a deep depth of field.
Superb 4K capability with wide dynamic range and wide colour space
With optional software the HDC-4300 has the function of capturing 4K images. For the HDC-4300, Sony has brought together its leading-edge technologies and deep experience to design and build the world’s first three 2/3-inch 4K imagers with ultra-precision alignment technology used to mount the chips to a newly-developed prism. This new optical system supports the wide colour gamut of ITU-R BT.2020, enabling more precise colour reproduction in live broadcasts.
High Frame Rate capture for 4K 2x and HD 8x super slow motion
The HDC-4300’s real 4K imagers capture at four times the resolution of HD. In HD shooting, this can be used to achieve extreme high-speed image capture at a maximum of 479.52/400 fps with the optional software upgrade. The frame rates of 59.94/50, 119.88/100 and 179.82/150 fps are available as standard. In 4K shooting, a maximum of 119.88/100 fps can be achieved. The real-time full digital process is applied to each frame even at high frame rates in the BPU-4000/BPU-4500A, producing the same quality in the images as one at the normal speed. Captured images can be recorded to the PWS-4500 4K/HD multi-port AV storage unit for super slow motion replay*.
*Some third-party manufacturer servers may also be used.
For 4K 2x and HD 8x slow motion replay, the following condition is required:
- The PWS-4500 system with optional software PWSL-HF45
- The BPU-4000/BPU-4500A with optional software SZC-4002
