Kanal D Romania selects Sony 4K camcorders

Kanal D, a nationwide television channel in Romania, has acquired 33 Sony PXW-Z280 and PXW-Z190 professional 4K handheld camcorders in a bid to further bolster its wireless news production capabilities. The new state-of-the-art camcorders have been acquired through Romanian supplier SPSS RomTek Electronics.

As part of Sony family of XDCAM camcorders, the PXW-Z280 and PXW-Z190 offer advanced wireless capabilities that provide broadcasters, like Kanal D, with easy and cost-effective solutions to bring content first to air or to their web presence. Since launching at NAB last year, news organisations across Europe have invested in Sony latest camcorders, including Scotland’s largest digital media brand STV, and broadcaster Bosnian-Herzegovinian Radio Television (BHRT).

“As wireless production is becoming increasingly prevalent within the broadcasting industry, we at Sony continue to work closely with our customers to offer solutions that meet the real-life needs of today’s broadcasters – like Kanal D – and help them cater to the demands of their audiences,” explained James Leach, European Product Marketing Manager, Sony Professional Solutions Europe. “Both the PXW-Z280 and PXW-Z190 offer broadcast professionals spectacular picture quality, multi-codec flexibility and streaming capabilities. It’s never been easier for them to record and share great-looking content with absolute confidence and reach more audiences, quicker.”

This acquisition completes Kanal D’s investment into its second high-end production studio which is already equipped with various Sony solutions, including the XVS-6000 video switchers, ten HSC-100R studio camera chains and LMD series monitors.

Kanal D is subsidiary of Dogan Sirketler Grubu Holding AŞ, company that holds TV (Kanal D), and radio (Radio Impuls) and online (,, and business operations in Romania.
