ARRI Unveils New Upgrade For The AMIRA

News Image
ARRI has unveiled a new upgrade for the AMIRA that will allow it to record ProRes UHD files and be adopted by productions requiring 4K quality, answering months of industry debate and discussion as to whether the company would eventually respond to the increasing demand for 4K.

The AMIRA will now offer the ability to record all ProRes codecs in Ultra High Definition 3840 x 2160 resolution directly onto the in-camera CFast 2.0 cards, at up to 60 fps. The feature is activated through an affordable software license (and a sensor calibration for existing AMIRAs) and follows feedback from AMIRA customers, some of whom have been quizzed about 4K deliverables by clients.
AMIRA's UHD output uses the same 1.2x up-sample filter that allows ALEXA's Open Gate mode to optimise the camera's image performance for 4K distribution, as well as the same sensor pixels. The up-sample to UHD happens in camera, and in real time.
The wide, 14+-stop dynamic range remains unaltered, as does the accurate colorimetry, natural skin tones and organic look and feel synonymous with the product.
The upgrade is expected to be available for purchase at the online ARRI License Shop by the end of 2014.
