Sony 4K XAVC Recorder. Internal 2TB SSD with two SxS memory slots

Superb 4K picture quality and enhanced workflow efficiency
The PZW-4000 4K XAVC Recorder supports XAVC-L422 QFHD 200 (200Mbps for QFHD @60fps) recording/playback as well as XAVC-I QFHD 300 (Intra XAVC for QFHD @ 600 Mbps), which is widely adopted in today’s 4K/UHD productions.

Long GOP compression technology at 200Mbps reduces video bit rates by 1/3 at 59.94p and 2/5 at 50p compared with the XAVC Intra codec while maintaining superb 4K image quality.

This combination of picture quality and lower data rate significantly improves workflow efficiency, especially with projects involving longer recording/playback time and faster transferring/copying of files.

The internal 2TB SSD allows approximately 20 hours of recording/playback in XAVC-L422 QFHD 200Mbps, with faster than real-time transfer through the GbE network interface.

On-the-fly playout from SxS memory
Dual slots for professional SxS memory cards enable on-the-fly playout without ingesting media into the recorder’s internal SSD. It also enables simultaneous recording(*1) to internal SSD and SxS, allowing content to be used both for backup and ‘to-go’ for editorial purposes. This allows production crews to carry out off-loading/backup operations as soon as shooting is completed.

Support for XAVC-L422 QFHD 200Mbps
The PZW-4000 supports the latest and most advanced XAVC family codec, XAVC-L422 QFHD 200, along with XAVC-I QFHD 300. It can compress QFHD/UHD images efficiently while maintaining high image quality. Excellent broadcast picture quality is ensured by 10-bit quantisation and 4:2:2 colour sampling, ideal for today’s rapidly growing HDR productions.

The PZW-4000 uses the same highly efficient encoding process as introduced with the PWS-4500 server. This ensures the highest picture quality in both SDR and HDR at an easy-to-handle 200Mbps data rate.
