ARRI recently announced a new version of its AMIRA camera: the AMIRA Live. Designed specifically for multi-camera live broadcasts, it eliminates external cabling between the camera body and the fibre adapter, resulting in a cleaner and more reliable configuration for live productions. Along with a new, feature-rich software update and the Viewfinder Multicam Monitor VMM-1, AMIRA Live offers a unique combination of system camera efficiencies and truly cinematic images.
SUP 6.1 for AMIRA Live
AMIRA Live comes with the latest software update package, SUP 6.1, which adds enhanced Multicam functionality. Among its many refinements are improved noise reduction, increased sharpness settings range, improved defect pixel correction, and faster boot-up. The update adds a green tally display to the viewfinder image and allows intercom talkback via the VTR or user button, facilitating easier communications when operating the camera from the shoulder.
AMIRA Live in action
Go behind the scenes of the famous Ehrlich Brothers German magic show: director Rolf Sturm and cinematographers Thomas Gerdon, Guido Aras, and Sabine Blasczyk share their experiences of working with the ARRI Multicam System and its new, purpose-designed camera – the AMIRA Live. They describe the look, colour science, and workflows, as well as the creative opportunities they never had with classical broadcast cameras.
