The Sony BPU-4000 is a baseband processing unit which supports simultaneous 4K and HD signal outputs from the Sony HDC-4300 and HDC-P43 cameras.
It enables parallel transmission to UHD and HD viewers of your live production.
Enabling High Frame Rate 4K live production
When utilised with the High Frame Rate (HFR) option activated, the BPU-4000 allows 2x slow motion in 4K, and 8x in HD, for the Sony HDC-4300 and Sony HDC-P43 4K cameras. And with an upgrade, you can utilise HD cut-out functionality. This allows you to produce real-time HD cut-outs from a 4K image. This is particularly useful when operating fixed camera positions.
The BPU-4000 is supplied as standard with our Sony HDC-4300 and HDC-P43 complete channels, or it can be hired individually. In each case, we can include the High Frame Rate option according to your requirements.
