Sony’s HDC-F5500 acquire Its First Trial For Live Broadcast


On April 23rd, Sony’s HDC-F5500 live system camera will be put through its paces for the first time when Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte fight at Wembley Stadium.

Sony, EMG Group, and BT Sport have teamed together to host Fury’s WBC heavyweight championship defence. In comparison to earlier Sony cameras, the HDC-F5500 has a slew of new features and enhancements that streamline the shooting process. Here’s the official website’s description of the game. Every situation from broad beauty shots to tight close-ups may be captured with the HDC-F5500 due to the camera’s Super 35mm 4K CMOS sensor. The most demanding live entertainment events, including sports, music, and drama, benefit from a wide range of workflow advances, including IP networking, remote multi-camera control, and in-CCU recording.”

Since its debut in December 2021, the new camera has been making waves in the broadcast industry, and Tyson vs Whyte is no exception. For sports events, we’re continuously striving to try out the newest technology to improve on our current processes and create a world-class watching experience, says BT Sport head engineer Andy Beale, as reported by Broadcast Now. A high-profile bout like Tyson Fury vs. Dillian Whyte is an ideal opportunity to test out new cameras in real time.


For Norbert Paquet, Sony’s head of live production solutions, the event was a “great opportunity to showcase our newest technologies in action,” he said. To ensure compatibility with current Live Production workflows and operations, but also to ensure the long-term sustainability of HDC cameras, the HDC-F5500 has been created in a spirit of innovation and sustainability.

The Sony HDC-official F5500’s website has further information. The fight between Tyson and Whyte will be shown live on Fox Sports and ESPN Plus for a fee.
