Sony 4K technology performs tests at Wimbledon and Confederations Cup
Each step is a step forward in the future proliferation of 4K technology in everyday life. This time, Sony made recordings in the three games that were held in the stadium MineirÃ£o, during the Confederations Cup. In turn, during the English major tennis tournament, the brand used F55 cameras and NEX-FS700 to capture images in RAW 4K, which then would store AXS-R5 recorders, connected directly to the F55 interface or through the new HXR- IFR5 with the NEX-FS700.
At Wimbledon were collected some matches played in the Centre Court and Court Number One, thanks to the collaboration of the BBC and are being tested for the potential delivery HEVC codec in $ K image compression to bitrate around 20 Mbps As for this ‘experiment’ is important to note that for high definition is known today, it takes 12 Mbps, therefore, to have good results, with only twice the bitrate can be compressed a resolution that is four times higher than currently known.
Both exercises will not be available immediately to the public as it will be maintained within the test company.Tags: 4k, Confederations Cup, Copa Confederaciones, Full HD, Wimbledon
