ACHTEL 9×7 Digital Cinema Camera Updated

Australian camera developer Achtel Pty Limited has announced an update 5.1 of firmware and workflow software for ACHTEL 9×7 Digital Cinema Camera.

The ACHTEL 9×7 Digital Cinema Camera is designed specifically for VFX, VR, Giant Screen and IMAX Cinema productions.

According to founder Pawel Achyel, “It’s not here to replace Sony, ARRI or RED cameras. It is designed to replace an array of ten of them.

“It is designed to deliver unprecedented levels of sharpness, not attainable with traditional digital cinema cameras in a small and manageable package. It features state-of-the-art Global Shutter, 4:3 aspect ratio, sensor featuring 65 Million photo-sites and delivers uncompressed 16-bit RAW footage up to 11 GB/s – approximately 30 times more than other high-end digital cinema cameras.”

Update 5.1 improvements include:

  • State-of-the-art highlight reconstruction algorithm leveraging linear uncompressed RAW format that the camera captures, which improves dynamic range from 13 stops up to 15 ~ 16 stops;
  • Flexible file name structure with ability to set templates; and
  • Camera Profile (IDT) to LUT (.cube) converter allowing non-linear IDT in Davinci Resolve (to overcome Resolve’s limitation to linear 3×3 matrix IDTs only).

Firmware 5.1 is available immediately and can be remotely updated for existing clients.
