A landmark in broadcasting in 8K
The world’s first 8K television channel is already on air in Japan. And Sony is proud to be supporting this broadcasting landmark with the UHC-8300 system camera that enables an entire 8K Ultra HD workflow – from image capture to storage, editing, display and playout.
Perfection in every detail Sony 8K 3CMOS camera
At the heart of the Sony 8K 3CMOS camera UHC-8300 is the world’s first 1.25-type 8K 3CMOS sensor, capturing pristine images with a resolution of 7680×4320 pixels and a signal to noise ratio of -62dB (at 1080/59.94i). It realizes the 8K picture capturing at high speed of 120p HDR. Along with this new generation sensor, the newly developed F1.6 prism system is capable to support the BT.2020 wide colour space, allowing content creators to realise 8K images with unprecedented clarity, colour and realism.
8K adding more value to 4K
This allows content creators to add value to every production, ensuring that premium footage captured in 8K can be enjoyed by consumers on today’s 4K HDR televisions and display devices. 8K images captured with the UHC-8300 can be enjoyed with native 7680×4320 pixel resolution on Sony’s Crystal LED large-scale display system.
Advanced 8K interface Sony 8K 3CMOS camera
Weighing just 7kg (approx.), the compact Sony 8K 3CMOS UHC-8300 camera head connects via a SMPTE fibre connection to the UHCU-8300 Camera Control Unit. The CCU outputs 8K 120p baseband signals over octal 12G-SDI based on SMPTE ST.2082-12. In parallel, simultaneous 4K and HD outputs are available over 12G/3G-SDI.
Made for tomorrow’s workflows
You’re covered for today’s production workflows as well as tomorrows. 8K Ultra HD images captured with the UHC-8300 can be stored and replayed as XAVC files using Sony’s PWS-4500 live server. And with a growing choice of third-party display, switching and editing solutions already available from Sony and other manufacturers, the 8K Ultra HD ecosystem is growing fast.
Simultaneous 8K/4K/HD production in HDR and SDR with Sony 8K 3CMOS camera
Teamed with the UHCU-8300 Camera Control Unit, the UHC-8300 enables HDR production workflows with a choice of S-Log3, HLG Live and HLG BT.2100. Broadcasters can also enjoy the benefits of Sony’s SR Live, with simultaneous output of 8K, 4K and HD signals in HDR and SDR to suit a wide range of live production requirements.
New 8K lens mount Sony 8K 3CMOS camera
A new 1.25-type lens mount system offers direct compatibility with specially developed 8K lenses from lens vendors. Current 4K lenses can also be used with a 1.25-type B4 lens mount adaptor.
Real-time 4K cutout by Sony 8K
The extraordinary resolution of 8K UHD allows production teams to select a 4K cutout from a portion of images captured with the UHC-8300. Displayed on a 4K monitor, this allows critical inspection and confirmation of focus.
