The PWS-4500 ISO Record Bundle from Sony includes PWS-4500 Multi-Port AV Storage System and PWA-RCT1 Record Control Software for PWS-4400. Capable of recording images in the XAVC recording format, the PWS-4500 Multi-Port AV Storage System 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 the Networked Media Interface, while enhanced system efficiency and flexibility are provided by the 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 (none included).

The PWA-RCT1 is a running application software (requires Windows 8 or higher) that provides another method to control each port on multiple units of the PWS-4400 Multi Port AV Storage unit. The software can be used for triggering rec/stop/play/file transfer from a single PC with an intuitively operational GUI. The PWA-RCT1 adds increased operational flexibility to the PWS-4400 so that it could be offered as an easy-to-use multi-port 4K/HD production recorder for a wider variety of production usages.

WS-4500 Multi-Port AV Storage System
  • Capable of recording up to four 4K video signals/six HD video signals and 16 audio channels (uncompressed, 24-bit, 48 KHz) using the very efficient 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
  • 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
  • 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 2TB memory enables 6 hours of recording in 4K and 24-hour recording in HD
  • Memory expandable up to 8TB
  • 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
  • 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
  • To assure high reliability, the PWS-4500 System comes with a redundant power supply unit as standard
  • 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
  • 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
  • PWS-4500 System can be used as a multi-channel recorder using the XAVC recording format
  • Supports 4K to HD resolutions
  • The unit features high-speed & high-capacity memory storage and supports transfers over IP, so it fits well into the network infrastructure
Record Control Software
  • Supports XAVC codec 4K XAVC-I (600 Mbps @ 60p) and HD XAVC-I (100 Mbps @ 60i)
  • Supports LPCM 24-bit 16-channels for audio
  • 4K recording at 60 fps with PMW-F55 and 120 fps with F65
  • HD cut-out mode allows the operator to generate HD output from a 4K image
  • Supports a touch-based interface with variable zoom and key frames
  • Two GbE ports
  • Supports RS-422 control Sony VTR/Disk, VDCP and Odetics protocols
  • Includes 2TB internal storage
  • 4K Stitch support
  • With a single PWS-4400 it is possible to record and playback two 4K signals
  • This makes it suitable for the Sony PWA-4KS 4K Stitch application
  • 4K Stitch combines the output of two 4K cameras to create an 8K x 2K video canvas
  • Up to three virtual HD cameras can be derived using this technology with full Pan, Scan, and Zoom capabilities
