Launch of “XDCAM” HD and Next-Generation Switcher
Sony Corporation today announced the launch of new product line-ups for the growing market of HD content creation at Inter BEE 2005 in Chiba, Japan. The new products include the “XDCAM” HD series and the “IXS-6000” series.
The “XDCAM” HD series, which represents the HD-ready solutions within the “XDCAM” product category, is a large capacity and “professional disc”-based video system, enabling speedy HD content creation. The “IXS-6000 series,” the next-generation “Integrated Rooting Switcher System,” will offer an advanced environment for content creation.
Sony will also showcase the newly developed “HD super slow motion camera system” at this year's Inter BEE exhibition. This camera system can capture full-resolution HD images three times faster than previously possible.
With the development of wider product line-ups and technologies, Sony is presenting various solutions and supports content creation workflow for the expanding the digital terrestrial broadcasting market.
Furthermore, the multi-format camera system “HDC-1000” series, launched in September this year, received wide acclaim among broadcasters as well as the content creation industry.
As a result, shortly after market introduction, some 22 broadcast stations in Japan have already adopted many of the products introduced as part of the “HDC-1000” lineup.
