Panasonic Debuts Varicam Pure at IBC2016

Panasonic will introduce a new cinema-ready version of the VariCam 35 at IBC 2016, sporting a jointly developed Codex recorder capable of uncompressed, 4K RAW acquisition.

The VariCam Pure is a ‘co-production’ between Panasonic and Codex Digital, it couples the existing VariCam 35 camera head with a new CodexV-RAW 2.0 recorder, ideal for episodic television shows and features.

The V-RAW 2.0 recorder attaches directly to the back of the VariCam 35 camera head. As a result, the camera retains the same Super 35 sensor, 14+ stops of latitude and dual native ISO as the original VariCam 35 and weighs in at 5kg.

The new VariCam Pure camera system records pure, uncompressed RAW up to 120 fps on to the industry-standard Codex Capture Drive 2.0 media, which is already widely used by many camera systems, post facilities and studios.

Codex will provide the most efficient dailies and archiving workflow available through its Production Suite. In addition, the Codex Virtual File system means users can transfer many file formats including Panasonic VRAW, Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHR.

Using the Codex Capture Drive means a reliable workflow from digital capture to post production. Along with the original camera negative, frame-accurate metadata (such as lens and CDL data) can also be captured, streamlining production and post-production, and delivering time and cost savings.
