Sony used this year’s IBC to unveil the UHC-8300, its first 8K camera system to include  three 8K sensors. Sony will be taking orders for the camera from October.

The camera is able to generate 8K, 4K and HD signal outputs simultaneously applying different colour spaces and OETF to each signal.  Simultaneous output of 8K HDR, 4K HDR and HD SDR signals is also possible. It can do real time cut outs from an 8K picture to a 4K image.

Accessories developed for the other HDC series cameras including viewfinders and remote-control panels will be compatible with the UHC-8300. The original lens mount is a 1.25-inch lens mount, but the UHC-8300 can also handle B4 mount 4K lenses with a lens adaptor. 

The 8K signal is transmitted via SDI, but the UHC-8300 also supports IP connectivity.  

Sony developed the camera system with customer input on the product specification given by NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation), Japan’s public broadcaster.
