ALEXA M – the new capturing device for the OmniCam
The Alexa camera gained an overwhelming reputation in motion picture and broadcast productions for its outstanding quality and ease of operation. The OmniCam would greatly benefit from the quality of this device; but a much smaller form factor is required. Hence we reduced weight and size of the Alexa camera. The first working prototypes of Alexa M were presented at IBC 2011. In this modular camera version the sensor head is separated form the electronics back end, connected through an ultra fast fibre connection. The sensor head will be integrated into the next generation of the OmniCam for even more fascinating and immersive panoramic pictures.
