London – Sony is filming part of this year’s Wimbledon Tennis Championships in 4K. It is the first time that action from Wimbledon has been captured in the Ultra HD format.
The footage will be shot on Centre Court and Court Number One during the first round of the competition on Sony’s F55 and NEX-FS700 4K cameras.
Sony Europe director of marketing David Bush commented: “Over the past two years, Sony and the All England Lawn Tennis Club have continued to push the production boundaries at Wimbledon and are excited to be able to raise the bar even further this year. Sony’s new 4K cameras allow us to shoot the tennis in fantastic detail and produce images that draw the viewer closer into the action on court more than ever before.”
