Open Source

We are adopting a new open source policy for our rental division, making 4K cinema fully open and available to all who wish to access the camera, workflow and processing. Open means full details on all parts of the process is free and information such as the true sensor characteristics, debayer paths used, workflow solutions and more will be open for all to see. Exciting prospects ahead.
