Sony Unveils 8% More Efficient PS4, 1TB Ultimate Player Edition

Sony announced that PS4 Slim, its latest console has been on the market for 19 months now, and it’s time to roll out a new model with some efficiency and cost savings built-in. The new PS4 is model CUH-1200, and there are three significant changes to the hardware. The first is an 8% power saving when in use compared to the existing model. The second is a 10% reduction in the weight of the console. And the third, and most noticeable change, is the hard drive cover section of the casing. It now matches the matte finish of the rest of the case. The reduction in weight suggests Sony has managed to combine some of the hardware components the PS4 uses, and therefore shrink them in size and weight. This would also explain the power savings, as smaller, more efficient parts require less power and probably less cooling, too (another weight saver). The change in the finish of the hard drive cover will surely be welcome to a lot of gamers. Sony has announced the 1TB PS4 Ultimate Player Edition. Unusually, Sony has decided to only announce it for Europe and PAL territories for now, with a release date of July 15, 2015.

Sony Announces Launch of Fully Automated Spectral Cell Analyzer

Sony announced the launch of a fully automated spectral cell analyzer equipped with a newly developed autosampler that employs 3-dimensional drive, which simplifies operation and enables rapid analysis of large numbers of samples. A flow cytometer is a device that irradiates cells stained with a fluorescent reagent with a laser and analyzes the types and properties of the cells by measuring fluorescence and scattered light. Flow cytometers are widely used in cellular research fields such as immunology, oncology, and regenerative medicine, as well as in drug discovery. Particularly in realms like drug discovery and biomarker discovery, which require analysis of many types of cells, there is a real need for the capacity to analyze large numbers of specimen rapidly, efficiently, and accurately. With conventional autosamplers, the well plate moves horizontally, while the sample suction probe moves vertically to collect the samples. The consequence of this is that the sample must traverse a relatively long distance before reaching the measuring unit, and this can cause issues with processing speed and carryover ratio (the rate of cross contamination between samples). The SA3800's newly developed autosampler employs a stationary sample suction probe and a well plate that moves in three dimensions (X, Y, Z axes), thus speeding the sample acquisition and analysis process. Additionally, the probe has a built-in self-washing function that further reduces the carryover ratio to 0.1% or less. These capabilities enable the SA3800 to realize stable yet high-speed sample collection, which is a much sought after feature for the analysis of large numbers of samples.

Sony Announces Two Versatile Cyber-Shot Cameras the Compact RX100 IV (Model DSC-RX100M4) and High-Zoom RX10 II (Model DSC-RX10M2) Cameras

Sony announced two of the most advanced, versatile Cyber-shot cameras ever to come to market, the compact RX100 IV (model DSC-RX100M4) and high-zoom RX10 II (model DSC-RX10M2) cameras. The two new models both feature the world's first 1.0 type stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor with advanced signal processing and an attached DRAM memory chip. The high speed signal processing and DRAM memory chip work together to enable more than 5x faster readout of image data and are responsible for a variety of standout features that have previously been available in only a select few professional-level video cameras. These impressive capabilities include 40x super slow motion video capture at up to 960 fps, an ultra-fast Anti-Distortion Shutter with a maximum speed of 1/32000 second, high resolution 4K movie shooting and more. A first for Sony consumer cameras, the new RX100 IV and RX10 II both have the ability to record super slow-motion video at up to 40x slower than the standard rate, allowing users to capture and replay fleeting moments of action with incredible detail, resolution and clarity. Prior to shooting, users will have the ability to choose among 960fps, 480fps and 240 fps frame rates and among 60p, 30p and 24p playback formats to optimize the recording to fit the speed of the moving subject, with the option to use the movie record button as a 'start trigger' to begin recording once button is pressed or 'end trigger' to record footage up until the button is pressed. The 'end trigger' mode lets shooting begin 2 to 4 seconds before the movie button is pressed, enabling shooters to capture the decisive moment with much more consistency and accuracy. The impressive speed and power of the 1.0 type stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor with an attached DRAM chip allows the new RX100 IV and RX10 II to perform exceptionally well while capturing fast-moving subjects. Specifically, it's fast processing capability results in continuous speeds at up to 16 fps on the RX100 IV and up to 14 fps on the RX10 II for an extended period of time. Additionally, the ultra-fast readout of the image sensor is responsible for the high speed Anti-Distortion Shutter (maximum speed of 1/32000 second), which allow the new cameras to capture sharp, crystal clear images with a wide open aperture at brightness levels up to EV19. It also minimizes the 'rolling shutter' effect commonly experienced with fast moving subjects. This allows photographers and videographers to capture beautiful content with sharply focused subjects and defocused backgrounds under some of the most difficult, bright lighting conditions. The new RX100 IV and RX10 II models are the first Cyber-shot cameras to offer the advantages of 4K (QFHD 3840x2160) movie recording. The cameras utilize full pixel readout without pixel binning to ensure that all the finer details of 4K video are captured with minimal moire and 'jaggies'. These high-quality results are achieved through use of the XAVC S codec, which records video at a high data rate of 100 Mbps during 4K recording and 50 Mbps during full HD shooting. The new RX100 IV maintains the compact, pocket-sized design of the RX100 family, and has a ZEISS Vario-Sonnar 24-70mm (35mm equivalent) F1.8-F2.8 lens, while the new RX10 II maintains the same body design as the original RX10 and has a Vario-Sonnar T 24-200mm (35mm equivalent) F2.8 lens. Each of the cameras is equipped with a new high-contrast XGA OLED Tru-Finder, with approximately 2.35 million dots of resolution, ensuring true-to-life image preview and playback functionality. The RX100 IV maintains the convenient retractable EVF with ZEISS coating from the RX100 III model that debuted last year.
