Sony Announces 5G mmWave Compatible Device “Xperia PRO”

Sony today announced plans to develop a 5G mmWave compatible Xperia PRO device designed for professional solutions, such as broadcast video production(1). The device will include camera and display capabilities from Xperia 1 II (Learn more about Xperia 1 II), ensuring high-quality video viewing and photography.

Additionally, it will include Sony’s unique 4-way antenna technology and low- permittivity materials, increasing the sensitivity of 360-degree omnidirectional communication in the 5G mmWave band, where it is difficult to maintain stable communication, and realizes data transmission and reception at ultra-high speed. In addition, Xperia PRO has a unique monitor function that displays the connection direction of 5G mmWave and data transmission/reception speed on the screen. Xperia PRO supports professional broadcast video transmission workflows by visualizing and confirming communication status. 

Xperia PRO will also support an HDMI(2) connection , which allows the device to be connected to virtually any camera with an HDMI output. While using the camera as a monitor for interchangeable lens DSLR cameras or professional camcorders, it is possible to transmit broadcast video data during shooting to a server or cloud via 5G connection.
