ALEXA Fiber Remote Option Brings The Cinematic To Broadcast


Last Updated: September 11, 2012 4:13 am GMT
(Amsterdam IBC, Netherlands--September 11, 2012) Now the breathtaking images seen in blockbuster and critically acclaimed Hollywood films are obtainable for the broadcast world through the ALEXA Fiber Remote Option. With a high sensitivity over two stops more compared to typical 2/3’ camera systems, the image quality and dynamic range of ALEXA (progressive and interlaced mode, up to 1080/60) can be applied to typical multi-camera broadcast studio or OB van productions. The shallow depth of field and excellent color rendition achieves higher production value for telenovelas, soaps, sitcoms, events, music concerts, talk shows, magazines, sport specials and more.

Using a certified system that includes CopperHead from Telecast Fiber Systems, ALEXA and ALEXA Plus models can be connected through a SMPTE 311M fiber connection and remote controlled for live painting of the image. Besides the Telecast CopperHead components and the ARRI Fiber Remote Box mounted on top of the ALEXA body, a monitor is also required for typical pedestal use. The Fiber Remote Option is available in configurations as an upgrade to existing ALEXAs, or as complete camera sets from the ARRI dealer network. Telecast components and viewfinder monitor are separate items for purchase.
