Sony's PMW-PZ1 4K SxS Memory Player makes playing back 4K footage as easy as inserting your SxS card and pressing play. It features a single SxS card slot, HDMI output, 4 x 3G/HD-SDI outputs, analog audio output, and a 3.5-inch LCD. This combination enables the seamless playback, copying, and monitoring of 4K and HD video across a diverse range of applications not only for video production but also for development of 4K equipment and 4K video walls at events, exhibitions, museums, and other venues.

The player supports XAVC Intra and XAVC Long at frame rates up to 59.94p, with planned future updates to expand the formats the unit supports. You can connect an optional USB drive and copy directly from an SxS card to the USB, choosing the level of data verification you wish. The built-in 3.5" LCD monitor lets you watch playback without requiring any additional hardware. The VTR-style buttons allow you to control playback without engaging a menu system.

Direct Playback and Viewing

You can playback footage from SxS memory cards or from an external USB storage device (real time playback from external drives not guaranteed). Please use appropriate media depending on bit rate of the data. (Sony recommends SSD or RAID-type HDD)

Simple Copy and Back-Up

The USB interface is designed for connection to an external USB storage device. This enables users to copy data in SxS media directly to external storage without the need for other devices. The PMW-PZ1 creates a copy log (csv format) in the external USB storage device, which helps users to easily check the file names of copied files. For greater accuracy in the copy process, users can activate a verify function before copying to avoid any copy errors.

Versatile Control

Interface

The PMW-PZ1 incorporates a host of versatile input and output interfaces, including a HDMI port and four 3G/HD-SDI outputs. The HDMI port allows you to connect to professional monitors and projectors, or even consumer TVs. Independent analog audio output are built into the unit, for independent monitoring or connection to speakers. Two USB interfaces, one for connection to external USB storage and the other to a mouse device for the user to control the PMW-PZ1, provide access and control over an optional external drive.

question

I have Sony FS5. May I use SxS to SDXC adapter to play footage on this device?
Asked by: Alexander
We are unable to test so it is our opinion that since the PMW-PZ1 can read the formats that you can record on the SDXC card, it should work. However, possible performance issues may occur.
