New ARRI ALEXA Mini software and hardware
[permalink] 26.04.2017

ARRI ALEXA Mini photoARRI's digital film camera ALEXA Mini has an update coming this May, called ALEXA Mini Software Update Package (SUP) 5. In addition to the ARRI Look Library (offering 87 looks in three intensities, more here), one of the key advances of the SUP 5.0 is enhanced integration with the ARRI WCU-4, a comfortable and ruggedly built 3-axis wireless control unit. Already widely used on ALEXA Mini sets, the WCU-4 will become an even more ideal companion with the new camera control features being introduced as part of SUP 5.0, including the wireless lens file transfer, playback control, and wireless user setups. Another new feature of SUP 5.0 is an EXT Sync function that allows the sensors and operational parameters of up to 15 ALEXA Mini cameras to be synchronized to a master ALEXA Mini. Slaves can assume parameters like the frame rate, shutter angle, or ND setup of the master camera, which also provides a status summary of all cameras. ARRI has also developed a new studio set for the ALEXA Mini, comprising four accessories. At the core of the new system is the ARRI Compact Bridge Plate CBP- 1, a base plate with integrated sliding bridge plate and shoulder pad, followed by the Rear Accessory Bracket RAB-1 offering flexible attachment options for the Power Splitting Box Mk II, a power distribution unit available in Gold Mount and V-Mount versions, while the Side Accessory Bracket SAB-1 provides a simple interface for mounting accessories towards the rear of the camera.
