F65 4K and HD Live Production Kit
F65 top-end Motion Picture 4K camera with 8K sensor combines with the SKC-4065, CA-4000 and BPU-4000 as a live production system camera suitable for 4K and HD productions
The F65 Live System combines the F65 top-end 8K Super 35mm single sensor Motion Picture camera together with the SKC-4065 4K live camera adaptor, CA-4000 4K fibre transmission camera system adaptor and BPU-4000 baseband processor unit. The F65 Live System provides cameramen with the same variety of components as any Sony HD system camera, including a wide choice of viewfinders with a unique Focus Assist function specially designed for 4K live operations, video returns, tally, intercom and zoom and focus controls. Video technicians (“shaders”) operate in the control room with traditional RCP/MSU control panels and keep all the standard operations as with any Sony HD studio camera. All parameters are remotely available to render the best picture in any environment. With the variety of outputs on the BPU-4000 you can have a simultaneous 4K and HD live operation, matching Sony HDC Series cameras perfectly. The F65 Live System also offers the capability to create very high quality HD cut outs from the 8K resolution images (with the SZC-2001 licence option for the BPU-4000) or operate as a 2x speed 4K slow-motion camera (with the SZC-2002 licence option for the BPU-4000).
Hailed for its 8K sensor resolution, wide colour space, high sensitivity and ultra low noise, the Sony F65 is the reference for top end digital Motion Picture cameras. Using the CA-4000 camera adaptor thanks to the SKC-4065 and BPU-4000 baseband processor, the F65 connects to Sony's principal HD camera control units, remote control panels and master set-up units.
As the RAW interface of the F65 is different from the PMW-F55, the SKC-4065 enables the CA-4000 to fit onto the camera body. It also interfaces the main commands with the camera itself, including multi-format, shutter, ND filter and gain.
This effectively converts the F65 to a live system camera, with a SMPTE fibre interface and a full set of connections for audio, tally, prompter and more. The SKC-PB40 power booster option for the CA-4000 is mandatory to use with the F65.
This vital link “debayers” the RAW signal from the F65 into 4K baseband video and also down-converts 4K to HD, performs HD cut-outs (with the SZC-2001 license option) and enables 2x speed 4K slow-motion (with the SZC-2002 license option). For traditional multi-camera shading and control, the BPU-4000 can connect to Sony HDCU-2000/2500 Camera Control Units, RCP-1000 series remote control panels and MSU-1000/1500 master setup units.
