Panavision, the motion picture industry’s most respected designer, manufacturer and provider of state-of-the-art cinema lenses, high-precision camera systems and innovative post production technologies, will showcase its Millennium DXL2 8K camera at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show, which runs April 7-12 in Las Vegas. Technology leaders from Panavision and its subsidiary Light Iron will also share their vision and expertise during panel discussions throughout the conference. The DXL2 is the evolution of a unique camera ecosystem, built by Panavision based on the input of cinematographers whose feedback contributed to the DXL2’s many significant advances. Introduced in February, the DXL2 features a RED MONSTRO 8K VV sensor with 16-plus stops of dynamic range, improvements in image quality and shadow detail, a native ISO setting of 1600, and ProRes 4K up to 60 fps. Images are presented on the camera in log format using new Light Iron Color 2 science (LiColor2), which streamlines the 8K pipeline and provides quick access to high-quality RAW images. Additional features to the DXL2 include a custom-made, integrated PX-Pro color spectrum filter offering a significant increase in color separation and dramatically higher color precision to the image; a built-in Preston MDR; 24v power; and expanded direct-to-edit features. Hands-on demonstrations of the DXL2 will take place at the Vitec booth (C6025) and at Vitec Creative Solutions (C9544). NAB attendees also have a chance to hear directly from the experts and designers behind Panavision’s cameras and lenses, and post production innovator Light Iron.
