TNDV Invests In Sony 4K/HD Cameras

News Image
TNDV has made its second large capital investment in Sony 4K/HD cameras to support increased demand for Sony-driven 4K workflows. With its recent purchase of 20 Sony HDC-4300L camera systems, TNDV’s Sony camera inventory increases to 28 units.

Four of the newly acquired HDC-4300Ls have been placed on Exclamation, TNDV's flagship 4K/HD mobile unit, bringing that truck’s camera complement to 12. The other 16 cameras have been split between Collaboration—TNDV's newest truck, which rolled out on February 22—and Aspiration, another popular mainstay of TNDV’s mobile production fleet.

"The Sony brand is highly respected for high-end 4K video acquisition, and especially revered for live, large-scale entertainment event productions," said TNDV President Rob Devlin. "The 4K image quality these cameras capture is impressive, even when displayed on massive LED screens in large arenas. With 12 cameras on Exclamation, we can easily handle large, 12-camera shows, or multi-camera shows that require ample backup cameras."

While Exclamation typically focuses on the biggest shows and events, Collaboration and Aspiration can now offer this same Sony 4K image quality on smaller entertainment event shoots. Professional cameras previously housed on those trucks have rippled down to smaller trucks in the fleet, such as Inspiration, as well as custom-configured flypacks.

The Sony HDC-4300L camera system features three 2/3-inch 4K imagers and supports wide color gamut for precise color reproduction when shooting live. It enables 4K capture for multiple 4K and HD outputs and super slow motion, among other capabilities, while integrating seamlessly within Sony 4K live production workflows.
