Sony Performs 4K Live Production Trials

Sony has announced that it performed further 4K live production trials during 'El Clásico' at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid on Sunday, 23 March.
This was in partnership with the technical services supplier MediaPro, which produced and distributed the content internationally.
Two Sony PMW-F55 35mm 4K cameras, each capable of capturing more than eight million pixels, were used to film the beauty of the game between the two Spanish giants live. The 4K images were viewed on two Sony PVM-X300 4K monitors in full resolution, receiving extremely positive feedback from the technical team on the ground.
This successful 4K trial opens the door to making the LFP (Liga de Fútbol Profesional) Spanish football league the first league in the world to bring regular 4K broadcasts to the 2014-2015 season, enhancing the experience of live sport for both broadcasters and sports fans. 4K provides four times the resolution of HD and is already widely used in the cinema production industry and among cinemas equipped with Sony 4K Digital Cinema projectors.
Sony is committed to driving 4K workflow solutions to the forefront of professional and consumer applications. Sony has already successfully conducted 4K live production trials in a joint project with FIFA TV at the FIFA Confederations Cup 2013 last June, as well as during the Wimbledon Championships in 2013.
