Sony HDC-5500 Three 2/3-inch 4K CMOS Sensor Portable System Camera

This product is a 4K/HD Ultra High Bitrate Portable Studio Camera head with SMPTE Fibre Interface.  An on-board signal processor allows the HDC-5500 to output 4K signals directly without the addition of a dedicated external baseband processor unit, saving rack space in the confines of an OB vehicle or studio environment. It can also output 4K signals directly via 12G-SDI.
