SONY 4K MEMORY PLAYER
Sony has announced its new 4K SxS memory player, the PMW-PZ1, will be available from June this year. The device features playback capability for 4K (24p to 60p) and HD video, and supports formats including XAVC Intra, XAVC Long, MPEG HD422 and MPEG HD.
“Despite the rapid growth of 4K shooting and editing, the playback of 4K video clips generally still requires costly high-powered computers or servers operated by users from technical backgrounds,” says Sony Australia senior product manager Anthony Kable.
“The PMW-PZ1 addresses the market need for an affordable, simple-to-use and compact 4K playback solution. It is compatible with a variety of formats, possesses a host of practical inputs/outputs for easy connections, and offers an intuitive interface readily operated by all users.”
The player is equipped with an SxS card slot, HDMI output, four 3G/HD-SDI outputs, an audio output and LCD colour monitor, a combination of interfaces that allows seamless playback, copying and monitoring of 4K and HD video across applications including video production, equipment development and displays at exhibitions, venues and events.
During field or location shoots, 4K images captured by Sony’s PMW-F55 camera can be checked immediately on the PMW-PZ1, or output to a professional monitor or consumer TV via HDMI. At event venues, 4K video can be output to digital signage or projectors. It can also be used to copy data from SxS media directly to external storage without employing other devices.
