As June 20th approaches Sony Venice Firmware update V4.0 gets ever closer. There tends to be a little confusion between V4.0 and High Frame Rates. You need V4.0 on the camera to be able to purchase the HFR options, it isn’t part of it.
Here are the key points for V4.0 and the HFR options:
A new Imager Mode 4K 2.39:1
HFR Modes in Select FPS
4K 2.39:1 120FPS
4K 17.9 110FPS
4K 4:3 72FPS
6K 3:2 60FPS
If not wanting to purchase a permanent license for HFR, it can be purchased weekly for around £160.00
Ability to control the camera including paint from a Sony RCP.
This is interesting because it enables the Venice to be used in Multi Cam environments with 3rd Part Fibre/Control Adaptors. Yes we have been asked!
Clean Progressive Monitor output in 25P & 29.98P
New Line and Mask Frame Lines
There is a need for existing Venice to be upgraded to V4.0 by us at Top-Teks, this is a free of charge service and can be organised to suit.
