Outline of product

AA-4814-B is a customized model of Sharp's 8K camcorder 8C-B60A by Astrodesign.
While inheriting basic functions such as shooting, capturing, playing back, and line-out of 8K60p images, we improved usability to reflect on-site needs.


●Capture better high-definition images by adding hardware and software to improve image quality
●Modify the camera's side and front panels to improve the user interface.
 Change to button positions similar to existing video cameras to improve operability
●Compression rate setting for video recording was added to improve workflow for 8K video production.

Transfer Software (Astra) to Transfer Images from SSD Pack to Tamazone Workstation
(8K video file is AVI file of Grass Valley HQX Codec)

* When transferring data to Tamazone Workstation SSD, the data can be transferred in about half of the recording time.
* Materials can also be transferred on a laptop while traveling outside the home, etc.
