Sony HDC-5500 Three 2/3-inch 4K CMOS sensor portable system camera.
- A new benchmark in creative flexibility
The HDC-5500 system camera brings new levels of image quality, portability, and creative flexibility to live production environments. Enjoy premium 4K/HD/HDR picture quality – and anticipate tomorrow’s production needs while maintaining full compatibility with today’s workflows and system hardware.
- Direct 4K output
A newly-developed onboard signal processor allows the HDC-5500 to output 4K signals directly without the addition of a dedicated external baseband processor unit, saving rack space in the confines of an OB vehicle or studio environment. It can also output 4K signals directly via 12G-SDI. Thanks to an all-new 4K baseband transmission system, the compact camera is ideal for use in Steadicam and wireless camera systems
- Impressive sensitivity and colour reproduction
Capture premium pictures with Sony’s advanced 2/3-inch 4K CMOS sensor with global shutter technology that eliminates the ‘jello effect’ and banding noise. This allows the HDC-5500 to capture pristine 4K images with exceptionally low noise (-62dB), impressive sensitivity (F10 at 1080/59.94p or F11 at 1080/50p), and high dynamic range while achieving the ITU-R BT.2020 broadcast standard wide colour space. It’s teamed with a specially developed LSI Digital Signal Processor that fully realizes the extraordinary imaging power of this new sensor.
- Get the look
Broaden your creative possibilities and achieve exactly the look you want in any shooting situation. Low-key Saturation ensures rich, vibrant colours in low-light areas. Powerful gamma functions give absolute control over fine-tuning tonal values, contrast, and detail.
- Simultaneous HDR and SDR production
The HDC-5500 can capture High Dynamic Range images, supporting Sony’s SR Live workflow for simultaneous HDR/SDR production with reduced inventory requirements.
