Stunning 8K 75P Imaging Sensor
The new 8K imaging sensor on the MAVO Edge is an amazing canvas with 45 million pixels on a 36x24mm full-frame CMOS sensor featuring 800/3200 dual native ISO, 8K Wide up to 75fps and latitude up to 14+ stops. Even at open gate 3:2 , surprisingly this beast can still deliver a gorgeous image of 45 million pixels at up to 48 frames per second. All of these features allow cinematographers to create without boundaries, no matter for feature movies, production with VFX, high-end TV commercial and series, even wild-life documentaries. Not just getting highest resolution for motion pictures, MAVO Edge ensures natural color, pleasing skin tones, low noise, high dynamic range and stunning details in organic and delicate way, cinematically. Benefiting from a greatly upgraded, cutting-edge image processing platform, MAVO Edge can capture images as 100fps at 6K Wide or 160fps at 4K Wide. At the same time, MAVO Edge also supports oversampling in Full Frame mode to output 6K or 4K resolutions which will result in more details and latitude with the same optical format.
Powerful 8K ProRes RAW
MAVO Edge can directly record Apple’s newest ProRes RAW codec which has been highly expected by the video industry from 2018 NAB. From the capture of its 8K CMOS image over the delicate color processing to the 8K ProRes RAW encoding and storage, these complex processes and the ultra-high bandwidth bitrate processing all happen within the compact MAVO Edge body. Aside from this, MAVO Edge also supports in-camera ProRes4444/XQ, ProRes422HQ, and H264 proxy. Based on the efficient ProRes codec system recognized by Hollywood’s filmmaking industry, Apple Inc. introduced a universal RAW codec which supports the recording of RAW footage, delivers the flexibility of RAW video with the incredible performance of ProRes in a format ideal for high-dynamic-range (HDR) content creation. For now, ProRes RAW can be edited and graded in Apple Final Cut Pro X, Assimilate SCRATCH, Filmlight Baselight and so on. Adobe software is also expected to support ProRes RAW natively this year.
Newly Designed Carbon Fiber Body
MAVO Edge utilizes an integrated body design with a new internal architecture. The integrated functions and interfaces of every module are redesigned or optimized to allow the MAVO Edge possess more industry standard interfaces in an effort to increase compatibility with third-party accessories. Thanks to the carbon fiber materials, this big guy with numerous industry-standard interfaces and complete functions weighs only 1.2kg, thus helping filmmakers get the job done in a more flexible and efficient way.
Significant Improvement on Record Media
To process 8K and offer more freedom in encoding, KineMAG is upgraded from SATA 3.0 SSD to NVMe M.2 SSD. MAVO Edge now features PCle 3.0 protocol which allows the whole-new KineMAG Nano to record footages at lightning speed of 10Gb/s, unhindered support of 8K 60fps ProRes RAW and even 8K ProRes444. Thanks to smaller form factor of KineMAG Nano, MAVO Edge adopts the dual media slot design like KineRAW-S35, first-generation cine camera introduced in 2012. The dual slots design allows for two KineMAG Nanos to record the same clips simultaneously and form an extra RAID1 backup to avoid missing clips. Furthermore, two cards can record the main codec and H264 proxies separately, to make the post-editing workflow much easier. Additionally, Kinefinity also offers KineMAG Nano enclosures so users could purchase and install third-party NVMe M.2 SSD on their own to save the cost for storage media.
Comprehensive Power Solution
An innovative hybrid battery plate is introduced to MAVO Edge, to meet power demands of the camera and accessories in different shooting scenarios. The integrated combined battery plate can work with 14.8V broadcast V-mount batteries like KineBAT PD 75/150. When handheld or gimbal way, the camera can be powered directly by compatible BP-U30 type batteries like GripBAT 4S, so the operator could work in a cord-free and smooth way, thanks to a reduced payload and no extra power cord. MAVO Edge’s body offers standard a D-Tap port, 12V RS port and Lens port (12V) to power the third-party accessories like wireless video transmitter and wireless lens motor directly. These ports eliminate the need for extra batteries or power converters thus streamlining the
camera setup and improving the system stability. In addition, Movcam brings dedicated KineKIT for MAVO Edge, especially the innovative 15mm baseplate with UPS function powered by two NP-F550 type batteries, due to specialized UPS power contacts at the bottom of MAVO Edge. The creative power solution can not only power the MAVO Edge independently, allowing for an efficient kit space utilization, but also work as UPS power source to supply uninterrupted power to the camera when replacing V-mount batteries or BP-U30 type batteries.
