What is 4K?

Offering four times the resolution of Full HD (2160x3840 vs. 1080x1920), 4K delivers more detailed, more realistic, more engaging images. And Sony 4K dramatically reduces the gaps between pixels (called the screen door effect) and visible pixels (called jaggies). The result? The most immersive, hyper-real, breathtaking experience possible.

As AVCHD (popular in conventional camcorders) does not support 4K video recording, XAVC S was developed for consumer 4K and HD video recording based on the XAVC 4K and HD format. XAVC employs the Long GOP codec (H.264/AVC) for video file compression to extend 4K video capture capacity. Additionally, the MP4 container format simplifies the handling of 4K video. It also supports high-bitrate recording so you can capture high-resolution video even when shooting fast, action shots.
