The Sony HDC-5500 4K HDR System Camera brings new levels of image quality, portability and creative flexibility to live production environments. Enjoy premium 4K/HD/HDR picture quality – and anticipate tomorrow’s production needs while maintaining full compatibility with today’s workflows and system hardware.

A newly-developed 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. Thanks to an all-new 4K baseband transmission system, the compact camera is ideal for use in steadicam and wireless camera systems

Capture premium pictures with Sony’s advanced 2/3-inch 4K CMOS sensor with global shutter technology that eliminates the ‘jello effect’ and banding noise. This allows the HDC-5500 to capture pristine 4K images with exceptionally low noise (-62dB), impressive sensitivity (F10 at 1080/59.94p or F11 at 1080/50p) and high dynamic range, while achieving the ITU-R BT.2020 broadcast standard wide colour space. It’s teamed with a specially developed LSI Digital Signal Processor that fully realises the extraordinary imaging power of this new sensor.

Broaden your creative possibilities and achieve exactly the look you want in any shooting situation. Low-key Saturation ensures rich, vibrant colours in low-light areas. Powerful gamma functions give absolute control over fine-tuning tonal values, contrast and detail.

The HDC-5500 can capture High Dynamic Range images, supporting Sony’s SR Live workflow for simultaneous HDR/SDR production with reduced inventory requirements.

Key Features

  • Easy transmission change
    The HDC-5500 supports optical fibre transmission as standard, with a SMPTE-standard interface for connection with associated HDCU-3100/HDCU-2000 series Camera Control Units. It’s quick and easy to reconfigure the camera at any time for fibre, third-generation digital triax or wireless operation with a choice of optional outside panels.

  • Wider workflow options
    Combining exceptional lightness and strength, the magnesium alloy body is complemented by carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) outside panels. Sure, stable handling is enhanced by the camera’s low centre of gravity, easily adjustable shoulder pad and widened hand grip area. Also ideal for handheld operation, HDC series studio cameras offer exceptional user ergonomics in a wide range of studio and field-based production environments.

  • The go anywhere camera
    Combining exceptional lightness and strength, the magnesium alloy body is complemented by carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) outside panels. Sure, stable handling is enhanced by the camera’s low centre of gravity, easily adjustable shoulder pad and widened hand grip area. Also ideal for handheld operation, HDC series studio cameras offer exceptional user ergonomics in a wide range of studio and field-based production environments.

  • Seamless integration
    Backwards compatibility with Sony’s industry-acclaimed HDC-2000 series system cameras simplifies smooth integration with your current live production infrastructures, including cameras and CCUs.

  • Multi-speed slo-motion acquisition
    Adding an optional license enables high frame-rate (HFR) HD image capture at 8x, 6x, 4x, 3x, and 2x. Simultaneous capture of high dynamic range (HDR) images allows simultaneous production of HDR and SDR at an SR-Live event.

  • Display camera number and tally
    Assigned camera number is indicated on the camera body by a graphical electronic paper display. Displayed information is updated automatically to reflect system changes. There’s also an LED tally lamp beside the camera number display.

  • Rich focus assist functions
    The Viewfinder Detail function adds dedicated image-enhancing edge signals directly to the viewfinder, helping the operator to focus quickly and precisely in any shooting situation. It’s complemented by a Focus Assist Indicator and advanced Focus Position Meter function.

  • Servo controlled ND and CC filters
    Dual optical filter wheels for Neutral Density (ND) and Colour Correction (CC)* open up wider creative possibilities. Both filters can be controlled from a remote control panel, master setup unit, or directly from the camera head.

  • Network TRUNK
    Network TRUNK (via LAN port) allows high-speed data transmission between the camera and CCU at up to 1 Gbps to support configurability with IP-based products and systems.
