4K/HD Baseband Processor Unit for IP Network

Model: BPU4500
  • An advanced baseband processor unit with IP interfaces
  • The BPU-4500 is equipped with the IP interfaces as standard (three outputs with individual redundant outputs), which enables the IP live production for 4K/HD in combination with the PWS-4500 4K/HD XAVC server.
  • It can handle broadcast quality HD and 4K video, audio, synchronization signals and control data across the IP network, which increases operational efficiency.
  • While the IP signals are output, the SDI signals can be output from the BPU-4500 simultaneously in order to integrate the BPU-4500 seamlessly with your existing SDI infrastructure.
  • Routes 4K signals from HDC-4300 camera, PMW-F55 camera fitted with CA-4000 or F65 camera fitted with SKC-4065

Product Info
Tech Specs
The BPU-4500 works with 4K/HD cameras such as HDC-4300 or PMW-F55 with CA-4000 to route 4K signals while supporting IP network or enabling long-distance transmission using standard SMPTE fiber cables or single mode fiber solution.
The BPU-4500 is a baseband processor unit equipped with IP interfaces as standard, which enables IP live production for 4K/HD in combination with devices like the PWS-4500 4K/HD XAVC server.
The BPU-4500 generates 4K and HD signals at a similar color matrix to match to the current Sony HD camera system. Working in combination with the HDCU-2000/2500 Camera Control Units permits the same system operation as the current HDC camera system, including Genlock, Return Video signal, Tally, Intercom and Sony RCPs/MSUs, which provides a future-proofed migration path for customers.

    • The BPU-4500 works with the HDC-4300 three 2/3-inch 4K imagers camera, or the CA-4000 attached to the PMW-F55 Super 35 mm 4K CMOS sensor camera, or the SKC-4065 attached to the F65 Super 35 mm 8K CMOS sensor SRMASTER camera to route 4K signals.
    • The BPU-4500 generates 4K and HD signals at the same color reproduction to match to the current Sony HD camera system.
    • 4K and HD signal outputs simultaneously, supporting ITU-R BT.2020.
  • 4K fiber transmission up to 1.24 mi as standard, with extension possible up to 3.11 mi
    • The 4K Live system works across standard SMPTE fiber cables for distances up to 1.24 mi.
    • By using the single mode fiber solution-which consists of HDCE-100 extension adaptor for the camera, HKCU-SM100 extension adaptor for the camera control unit
    • Single mode fiber cable-a maximum distance of 3.11 mi between a camera and the BPU-4500 is achieved.
  • High Frame Rate signal processing to a maximum 4K 100/120P, HD 400/480P (Optional software: SZC-4002)
    • The camera allows High Frame Rate (HFR) capturing up to 100/120 frames per second at 1080/50P and 1080/60P in 4K resolution (3840 x 2160).
    • Signals are processed in the BPU-4500 and passed to the PWS-4500 4K/HD server to replay them as super slow-motion.
  • HD cut out functionality (Optional software: SZC-2001)
    • It is possible to cut out a Full HD image from the 4K picture in real-time, allowing, for example, for the camera to be in a fixed camera position and operator free giving a wide view of the action, an area of which can be selected by the director.
  • Can operate without HDCU-2000/2500 CCU
    • The BPU-4500 works without the HDCU-2000/2500 CCU by supplying power to the PMW-F55 and CA-4000 side locally.
    • Alternatively, supplying power to the BPU-4500 through the HDCE-100 is possible.
    • The BPU-4500 has Reference signal and Return signal inputs and supports RCP control.
