Sony returns to NAB2017
Cementing its commitment to help its customers deliver the highest quality images to their audiences, Sony will also be showcasing its full range of 4K and High Dynamic Range (HDR) technologies that are ready for every application. Its wide range of large sensor cameras will be on display at the stand, as well as industry-leading 4K live production cameras systems with Share Play operation and Slow Motion Replay, making them ideal for live sports.
“This will be my first NAB in my new role as Head of Media Solutions and I’m excited to be here at the biggest industry event of the year showcasing what Sony can offer our customers,” said Richard Scott, Head of Media Solutions, Sony Professional Solutions Europe. “From acquisition to archive Sony is delivering innovations that help customers overcome their challenges and meet their strategic goals. NAB Show is a great opportunity to both showcase our solutions, but also to meet and understand our customers evolving needs, so we can ensure we remain at the forefront of addressing them”.
In an era of increasing pressure to provide a greater amount of stunning live content in ever-higher resolution, IP Live is moving from a promising breakthrough on the horizon to a reality. Sony will be showcasing its complete IP Live solution at NAB 2017, that’s designed to be ready today and open for tomorrow. As well as a number of new features Sony will also be announcing further steps to ensure its IP Live solution is as open as possible, including interoperability with a number of new manufacturers and the adoption of new industry standards.
Sony will also be showcasing a number of solutions to help streamline workflows. With newscasters under increasing pressure to get their content to air, or online, as quickly as possible Sony’s XDCAM camcorders enable streaming from the field directly to the station and/or the cloud for playback or editing. And its Media Backbone Hive end-to-end, cloud native, highly scalable unified content production platform supports the fast, efficient creation of content for traditional broadcast applications, Internet, mobile and social alike. At IBC 2016 Media Backbone Hive received The International Association of Broadcast manufacturers (IABM) Peter Wayne Award for Design and Innovation.
Sony’s Media Backbone NavigatorX, a powerful but affordable workflow and content management solution for small and medium-sized broadcast environments, will also be showcased on the stand.
