Straight to air

Don’t get left behind. Tell your story as it’s happening with XDCAM air – the cloud-based workflow service for news production that’s made to satisfy today’s Internet-first audiences.

XDCAM Air is the flexible bridge between field-based camcorders and your studio infrastructure, orchestrating the seamless exchange of live video, media files and project metadata. So you can focus on your story, save precious time and cut costs.

What’s the story?

XDCAM air opens up a world of exciting new production possibilities, enabling a secure, seamless wireless workflow from shooting to studio. Build stories fast, with direct access from the studio to files on camcorders or smartphones out in the field. Use XDCAM air as a standalone system – or integrate it seamlessly with your studio-based workflows to create compelling content, quicker and more cost efficiently than ever before.

Share content fast

XDCAM air automatically uploads proxy footage to the cloud from multiple camera operators in the field, so editing can start immediately. Uploaded content can be accessed securely from any location. News teams can even start logging clips while shooting’s still going on, saving even more valuable time when a story’s breaking.

News in your pocket

XDCAM Pocket turns your phone into a cloud-ready XDCAM camcorder. This intuitive mobile app streams content shot with smartphones back to base, using sophisticated QoS technology for better-looking pictures and fewer dropouts over cellular LTE networks.

Get to air even faster

Stay ahead of the game. XDCAM air sends story information and planning metadata from your Newsroom Computer System straight to compatible Sony cameras out in the field. After shooting, everything’s ingested automatically to your Media Asset Management (MAM) system. So you can save time, manual effort – and money – to build stories faster and more efficiently than ever before.

Open for business

Use XDCAM air through its own web interfaces – or integrate via open API into your existing production environment.
