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.

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.
