Content Creation & Cinematography

Across the industry, content creators continue to look for ways to engage their specific audiences with incredible content that has more detail, colour and contrast. Together with Sony, customers can create stunning content in 4K, UHD and HDR. At IBC 2018, Sony will showcase its range of solutions across all touch points of the content creation workflow, from capture to archive including its range of camcorders, with updates and new announcements to follow. The 35mm PXW-FS5 II camcorder with its ability to shoot in 4K HDR, 120fps RAW and offer New Colour Science, will be on stand for visitors to discover.


Sony also continues to work closely with cinematographers to offer solutions that allow them to convey the emotion of movie magic in every single frame they shoot. Visitors will be able to see and experiment Sony's next-gen state of the art CineAlta VENICE with the V2.0 Firmware now available.
