Innovative HD shooting solution using 8K camera technology

Key features

Up to 4 independent HD footage can be cropped from a single 8K camera, and each cropped image can be panned/tiled/zoomed individually
8K high-definition/wide-angle image realizes high quality cropping in a wider area
Automatic wide-angle lens distortion correction achieves natural-looking cropped image from anywhere within a whole image
A single operator can produce multiple footage by the linked operation of multiple frames/cameras
Virtual multiple-camera system allows space-saving, easier setup

The 8K ROI (Region Of Interest) system allows a single operator to produce up to 5 independent HD footage with a single 8K camera. Pan, tilt and zoom operations can be used on each crop area, so a single 8K ROI camera serves as four HD cameras. It improves acquisition efficiency in live and sports application, by contributing to the reduction of camera setup, relocation and transport costs. It also eliminates the need to take up audience seats for the setup of multiple cameras.


Application example of the 8K ROI camera system (1 camera, live stage recording)

The 8K Multi-Purpose Camera is set up in a fixed position. The four crop areas, 1 to 4, can be individually controlled for pan, tilt and zoom. Moreover, for example, crop 1 (long shot) and crop 2 (close-up) can be linked in operation.


Linked operation of multiple-frames/multiple-cameras

Several 8K Multi-Purpose Camera units (maximum of 8) can be connected and operated as one integrated system. By setting one crop area in the main frame and linking it to other crop areas, pan, tilt and zoom on the multiple crop images operate in link with the panning, tilting and zooming on the main frame. This allows improving operational efficiency in multi-camera/multi-angle recording or broadcasting. Multiple frames can be controlled using Framing Control Software*

Natural cropped image from anywhere within a whole image

Automatic Real-Time correction of wide-angle lens distortion cropped from the image periphery away from the center image. This results in natural-looking videos as if the camera images were individually panned or tilted.

Continuous evolution of software to enhance functionality is planned for the future

Future release* of Framing Control Software for longer distance shooting and Auto Framing Software for automatic object recognition

*Tentative scheduled for release in Winter 2020


Thanks to Newly-Developed 35mm Full-Frame Image Sensor Effective pixels: Approx. 33M), 8K realizes wider-angle image compared to 4K with the same picture quality.
Even more realistic and exciting image thanks to HDR(HLG) & BT.2020 Support
EF lens-mount opens up a wide range of lens choices for each shooting environment


A single camera can produce footage corresponding to 4 traditional cameras, resulting in increased productivity with limited resources and reduced number of cameras installed in a venue
