The PWS-4500PAC Replay System Bundle from Sony comprises of the PWS-4500 Multi Port AV Storage Unit, the PWSK-4403 USB Control Device, and the PWS-100PR1 Production Control Station. This bundle can be used with the PWS-100MG1 Media Gateway Station (available separately) as replay server in a live server system.

The PWS-4500 multi-channel recorder supports 4K to HD resolutions and is capable of recording images in XAVC recording format. It offers high-frame-rate video recording and instant slow-motion replay. The PWS-4500 unit comes equipped with 2TB internal solid-state storage, enabling six-hour recording in 4K (600 Mb/s) and 24-hour recording in HD (100 Mb/s). It can simultaneously create and record HD files from a 4K camera feed, and these HD files can be used as proxy material. It comes with a redundant power supply for assured reliability of operation.

The PWSK-4403 USB Control Device features a jog dial, a fader lever, and an industry-standard button layout. The PWS-100PR1 Production Control Station comes pre-installed with the PWA-PRC1 Production Control Software. The USB control panel and production control station together provide an intuitive GUI for slow-motion replay control and high-light editing on the PWS-4500 system, along with a touch-panel capability.

  • PWS-4500 Multi-Port AV Storage System

    Capable of recording images in the XAVC recording format, the PWS-4500 Multi-Port AV Storage System from Sony offers flexible I/O configurations, high-frame-rate (HFR) recording, and an intuitive user interface designed for professional operators. It creates a multi-port slow-replay server system for live sports production in both 4K and HD infrastructures.

    The connectivity with Sony’s IP-based infrastructure is assured by a Networked Media Interface, while enhanced system efficiency and flexibility are provided by a Share Play file sharing feature. To establish the PWS-4500 System as the replay server in a live server system, you need three additional units including the PWSK-4403 Control Panel, the PWS-100PR1 Production Control Station, and the PWS-100MG1 Media Gateway Station.

    XAVC Format
    • Capable of recording up to four 4K video signals/six HD video signals and 16 audio channels (uncompressed, 24-bit, 48 KHz) using the XAVC recording format
    • In a 4K workflow, a single XAVC file is created and recorded to the PWS-4500 System, which is easily handled by non-linear editing systems in the post production stage
    • The system records 4K/HD XAVC intra frames between 600 Mb/s (4K 50p/59.94p) and 100 Mb/s (1080, 50i/50.94i) in HD
    • XAVC fits into the growing 4K live production environment and you can explore creative possibilities in both 4K and HD live production
    • With the optional PWSL-DH45 codec, the PWS-4500 System can also record files as Avid DNxHD 220x/145/45, which is an ideal fit for the Avid DNxHD post production environment
    Flexible configuration for 4K and HD
    • PWS-4500 System can be configured flexibly using various option boards and software
    • From a 4-channel HD production recorder with a basic configuration, you can expand to a 4-channel 4K recorder/HD 8-channel recorder solution with a Networked Media Interface
    4K/HD HFR Recording and Replay
    • System records camera feeds captured at a high frame rate with Sony’s live camera systems, and can instantaneously replay them in very smooth slow motion at HD 2x and 3x as standard
    • You can also achieve HD 4x, 6x, and 8x, and 4K 2x slow-motion replay by using either of the optional software: HD 4x, 6x, and 8x: PWSL-HF45 HFR / 4K 2x: PWSL-HR45 4K/HD Cut Out Software and PWSL-HF45 HFR (High-frame rate) software
    • The intuitive operability of the PWS-4403 Control Panel helps you to control slow-motion replay and making full use of its jog dial, fader lever, and industry standard button layout
    Large-Capacity Memory Storage
    • Large 2TB memory enables 6 hours of recording in 4K and 24-hour recording in HD
    • Memory expandable up to 8TB
    HD Cut Out from 4K
    • By installing the PWSL-HR45 4K/HD Cut Out software, a full HD picture can be cut out from up to 3 recorded 4K sources
    • Each cut out sequence uses key frames referenced to timecode, position & zoom level for fast, intuitive, and creative operation
    • You can also select Live Zoom mode
    4K/HD Simultaneous Recording
    • PWS-4500 System can simultaneously create and record HD files from a 4K camera feed, and you can use those HD files as proxy material
    Redundant Power Supply
    • To assure high reliability, the PWS-4500 System comes with a redundant power supply unit as standard
    Connectivity with Next-Generation IP-Based Infrastructure
    • Networked Media Interface lets you connect with any IP live production environment simply by adding the optional PWSK-4506F Networked Media Interface Board, allowing video and audio signals to be received and transmitted over an IP network.
    Efficient file sharing via 10 GbE IP Networking
    • Once clips have been recorded by a PWS-4500 Server connected to a dedicated 10 GbE IP network, the new Share Play feature enables these clips to be shared among all connected PWS-4500 Servers to deliver a more efficient workflow
    • Eliminates the need to push or pull clips between different servers
    Multi Port AV Storage Unit
    • PWS-4500 System can be used as a multi-channel recorder using the XAVC recording format
    • Supports 4K to HD resolutions
