New Features For ARRI ALEXA FRO

News Image
ARRI recently employed its Fiber Remote Option (FRO) for ALEXA on a new concert film for Coldplay and a televised recording session with Robbie Williams.
New features include a new Fiber Remote box design and monitor mount, designed to allow flexibility to position the camera monitor and optimal ergonomics for the operator.
New software versions have been released: ALEXA SUP 7.1 (for ALEXA FRO only) and firmware v1.3 for the Copperhead CHCRP-2050. These updates allow synchronising genlock with the HD-SDI return signal for integration into typical broadcast environments, as well as adjusting sensitivity of the master pedestal for sensitive operation.
Increased flexibility with adjusting White Balance is possible now by manually selecting the Kelvin colour temperature value directly on the remote control panel. In addition, a new colour saturation setting is available in the RCP menu.
The ALEXA Fiber Remote Option is a certified setup that includes CopperHead from Telecast Fiber Systems, allowing ALEXA and ALEXA Plus models to be connected through SMPTE 311M fiber and remote controlled for live painting of the image. The shallow depth of field and colour rendition achieves high production value for telenovelas, soaps, sitcoms, events, music concerts, talk shows, magazines, sport specials and more.
