SONY hírek NAB 2013

Las Vegas, April 7, 2013: Sony today announced at NAB 2013 Anycast Touch, an ultra-portable and easy to use all-in-one live production solution. With no previous live production experience required, Anycast Touch is an affordable broadcasting/webcasting solution suitable for a wide range of educational and government institutions, corporate organisations and event management companies.

The AWS-750 Anycast Touch is an evolution of Sony’s popular Anycast AWS-G500, launched back in 2005. Enhancing the core values of portability, flexibility and scalability, Anycast Touch offers incredible picture quality for live production. Its innovative design uses sliding double touch screen to create an intuitive interface similar to that of a tablet. Developed as an all-in-one solution, Anycast Touch eliminates the need for any of the hardware typically required for professional live streaming such as video switchers, streaming encoders, recorders, audio mixers, titlers and remote camera controllers.

Capable of 10 bit processing with an output of Full-HD (1920x1080), Anycast Touch offers clearer, more detailed pictures than similar products on the market, either in SD, HD or a mix of both. Its tilt screen function enables users to use two dual screens whereby video and audio controls are split. Anycast Touch also allows video sources to be conveniently stored in scene folders with settings including titles, logos and effects. Operator can recall the next video source just by touching its thumbnail picture. Content can be easily streamed live over the internet, LAN or other dedicated lines.

“Anycast Touch draws from the best of Sony’s innovation and heritage in live production and switcher technology,” said Claus Pfeifer, Strategic Marketing Manager, Sony Europe. “Its compact and easy to use design means it is ideal for organisations that have considered broadcasting or webcasting their events but lacked the technical expertise to do so. With its low price point, Anycast Touch can also deliver cost savings for companies that currently hire rental companies for live streaming, as only one non-technical in-house person is required.”

Anycast Touch will be available in September 2013.
