All the forecasts about 4K solutions were realized, from the main camera brands, through transcoding, monitoring and file management and distribution solutions that respond to this new technology.
Even some of these solutions, especially in relation to cameras, presented really aggressive prices, which brings this type of productions even closer and encourages even more.
Black Magic Design introduced a new line of cameras that include 4.6K sensors and that allow capturing in 4K, such as the Micro Studio Camera, starting at $ 1,300.
AHA For its part, it also showed itself with aggressive solutions sustained in 4K, from its Cion camera to transcoding solutions, and down conversion to facilitate file management. They did the same Ikegami, JVC Y Panasonic, all targeting specific markets, but with the sole intention of producing in 4K.
Although the capture with this resolution has already been carried out since last year, in 2015 different peripherals that help the 4k workflow could be seen, especially fiber transport solutions.
4k multiplatform at Grupo Televisa
Among the reports made by Prensario at the NAB, Elías Rodríguez, director of engineering and operations of Grupo Televisa, commented that they will focus their 4k work on multiplatform transmission. As they do not have televisions for DTT, they will do so for satellite TV, cable TV and for cinemas, but mainly for all mobile platforms and SmarTVs.
They have already bought a large mobile unit with 10 cameras and a studio has been equipped to make 4K novels, which will begin production in May. The idea is to start creating content like when they started with HD: it does not matter if it is only for the web. What they are looking for is a very flexible IP solution that defines the start of production for multiscreens.
