Sony is enhancing its HDR offer to live productions.

At NAB, Sony has announced a new XAVC recording mode that optimises encoding for HDR into its PWS-4500 4K/HD live server, available to users through a software upgrade.

This new recording mode improves HDR image quality in XAVC with detailed complexity, bright skin tone, colour reproduction and more. It enables the PWS-4500 to record and replay superior HDR images at the same time maintaining the smooth XAVC file workflow that is already well known in the production industry. 

The announcement is part of a major focus on HDR by Sony at the NAB show in Las Vegas

The PWS-4500 version 2.3 software is planned for release in June, 2017.
