ARRI Features ALEXA XT Studio at IBC2013

At IBC2013, Amsterdam, Netherlands, HDPROGUIDE Magazine stopped by the ARRI booth, which featured the ALEXA XT Studio in action. The live demos were accompanied by lively dancers, streaming simultaneously from the above monitors. At the pinnacle of the range is the ALEXA XT Studio (XT = Xtended Technology), featuring a quiet, adjustable mirror shutter and an optical viewfinder that provides a real-time, high contrast image with true colors. The Studio is a direct response to cinematographers requests for a camera that perfectly combines cutting edge digital image-making with traditional elements of the film cameras they have known and trusted for generations.


Like the ALEXA XT Plus, the ALEXA XT Studio has an integrated wireless receiver for camera and lens remote control, built-in tilt and roll sensors and additional connectors for camera and lens control, signal output and accessory power supply. Like all ALEXA XT cameras it has in-camera ARRIRAW recording, a 4:3 Super 35 sensor, LDS PL mount, included anamorphic de-squeeze and high speed licenses as well as a new, super silent fan. Additionally, the ALEXA XT Studio also has an internal motorized ND filter and a DNxHD license (DNxHD recording not possible with SUP 8.0, planned for SUP 9.0).
