TUESDAY TECH TIP:
Recently a new software upgrade for the ARRI Amira camera has come onto the market. This upgrade allows filmmakers to record 4K footage. Though 4K in broadcasting is still relatively uncommon, cinematographers who haveused the 4K format have found its versatility to be greater than 1080p.
Markus Duerr, ARRI’s Product Manager has said, “Already acclaimed for its phenomenal image quality, ease of use and versatility, the new ProRes UHD output will take these benefits even further, adding value for customers in areas like China, where 4K is a major focus of industry attention.”
A majority of cinema cameras are now delivering 4K formats. The Amira workflow presents an alternative workflow that is more cost-efficient than the RED 4K workflow.
