Sony HDC-4300 To Broadcast Men's Clay COurt Championship

HOUSTON, April 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Wagner Media, Inc. (WM) today announced that four of their Sony HDC-4300 camera systems are being used to broadcast the Men's Clay Court Championships this week from River Oaks Country Club in Houston, Texas. The U.S. Men's Clay Court Championship, started in 1910, is the last remaining ATP Tour-level tournament in the United States to be played on clay courts.  The Tournament is being broadcast internationally April 4th through the 10th on Tennis Channel TV.

The Sony HDC-4300 camera system is being extensively adopted for professional sports coverage since its 2015 introduction.  Sports leagues including the NFL, MLB, PGA golf and NASCAR originally evaluated the camera system for its ability to shoot high frame rate video (slow motion).  However, the camera system's unique ability to simultaneously capture 4K and 3G-SDI HD video and produce multiple HD video cut-out windows enable it to deliver multiple video streams from a single camera and lens.
