At IBC last fall, Sony showed of its new RX0 action camera. The 4K-capable, $700 rugged camera sports a 1.0-inch 15.6MP stacked image sensor, compared to 1/2.3-inch for the GoPro Hero5 Black, and has a fixed Zeiss 24mm F4 wide-angle lens.
But, it also came equipped with some interesting features for multi-cam setups. At launch, users could wirelessly trigger up to five RX0s at once using the PlayMemories app on any paired device.
Now, Sony has announced its Accessory Camera Control Box, which allows users to connect and sync up to 100 RX0 cameras at once.
Sony also displayed the Rx0 in both a six-unit array and a 22-unit array, showcasing the potential this new feature holds for immersive video.
The control box offers PC control via web browser with a wired IP connection and allows the user to adjust the settings of all connected cameras, as well as begin and end recording.
Sony also updated its PlayMemories app to offer more multi-camera control capabilities, including connecting and controlling up to 50 RX0 cameras via an access point.
The new camera control box will cost $700 and is expected to ship next month.
