Spanish Broadcasting System standardizes on Sony XDCAM HD

When Spanish Broadcasting System (SBS) went on the air recently from its new studio, the Miami-based network did more than unveil a new look. It became one of the first Hispanic networks to implement full HD production, the network said.

SBS’ Mega TV network is broadcasting out of a newly redesigned, integrated studio. The heart of its new HD production capabilities is the Sony XDCAM HD system. The network has standardized its production and program delivery on the newest version of the Sony optical technology: the 2/3in PDW-700 camcorder and the PDW-HD1500 deck — as well as several PDW-U1 drives that will be used in editing stations throughout the facility.

The new studio also features eight Sony HDC-1400 studio cameras and two MVS-8000G switchers, with Sony’s BRC-H700 HD robotic cameras also used for POV studio shots.
