The camera has so many features, and its Generation 5 Color Science gives us amazing images,” he continued.

This includes Smart Videohub 40×40 and Smart Videohub 12×12 routers, HyperDeck Studio 4K Pro and HyperDeck Studio HD Pro broadcast decks, Video Assist monitor/recorders and a variety of Micro Converters.
