The Sony Xperia PRO is a 5G smartphone that will incorporate camera and display capabilities from the Xperia 1 II. Xperia PRO will also support an HDMI 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.

Sony Announces 5G mmWave Compatible Device “Xperia PRO” 

Sony also today announced plans to develop a 5G mmWave compatible Xperia PRO device designed for professional solutions, such as broadcast video production (footnote 1). The device will include camera and display capabilities from 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 (footnote 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.
