Tory Burch and Sony Bring Innovative 4K Imaging Technology to Fashion Industry
Tory Burch Spring 2014 Collection to be the First-Ever Runway Show Captured in 4 Times High Definition
PARK RIDGE, N.J, Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sony Electronics and Tory Burch LLC are partnering to bring a world's first to the fashion industry: a 4K Runway Show. When the Tory Burch Spring 2014 Collection is unveiled at Lincoln Center in New York City on September 10, Sony F55 professional 4K cameras will capture every step, turn and photo opp in stunning 4K resolution, an innovative new imaging technology that offers more than four times the detail and clarity of high definition video. The footage will be used to promote the collection in select venues.
Said Miki Berardelli, Chief Marketing Officer at Tory Burch, "We're always looking for innovative technology that elevates our brand. With 4K viewing, our customers will be able to experience the collection in extraordinary detail."
"The unique immersive nature of 4K eliminates any viewing restrictions," said John Studdert, vice president, strategic sales, at Sony Electronics. "Watching 4K is a similar experience to viewing a painting in a museum. You can get as close as you want to see every detail. Sony 4K imaging has re-defined the viewing and entertainment experience in the movie theater and the home theater. Now, Sony 4K technology can bring that same level of critical evaluation and consumer entertainment to the fashion world."
