Sony to unveil HD version of Anycast Station
At NAB2007, Sony will introduce an HD version of the Anycast Station system, a portable all-in-one studio for live content creation.
The AWS-G500HD HD-only version of the system retains the original multifunctionality of its SD predecessor. It combines into one package the capability of a six-input video switcher and six-stereo channel audio mixer; special effects generator; LCD screen for GUI control and preview/program monitor; control of Sony PTZ robotic cameras; RGB connection for PC and projector display; and an encoder and Web server for delivering streaming media. It also includes a still store, character generator, scale converter and frame synchronizer.
The new system comes preconfigured with an HD analog component interface module (BKAW-560) and an HD-SDI interface module (BKAW-590).
