4K RAW recording interface for the NEX-FS700E S ony is at an advanced stage of developing the HXR-IFR5 interface unit, allowing the Full-HD Super Slow Motion NEX-FS700E camcorder to capture stunning 4K RAW movie footage with the AXS-R5 RAW recorder. David Dettmann Photography Pixled LED for Royal Premiere X L Video, commissioned by Limited Edition Events, recently supplied 300 tiles of their bright and vibrant Pixled F-12 LED for the Royal Premiere of the new James Bond film, Skyfall.  After attendees arrived on the red carpet and ascended the stairs towards the Royal Albert Hall they were met with the sight of the classic Aston Martin DB5 with a backdrop of 75 tiles of Pixled F-12. The NEX-FS700E camcorder features a state of the art 4K Super 35 Exmor CMOS sensor (total 11.6 million pixels). With an optional firmware upgrade, the NEX- FS700E will output 4K bitstream data over 3G HD-SDI. The HXR-IFR5 interface unit has a 3G HD-SDI input and will transfer the 4K RAW data to record onto the Access Memory Card in the AXS-R5 Recorder. The 4K RAW format output by the NEX-FS700E is 4096 x 2160 pixel resolution and the available frame rates are 23.98p, 25p, 29.97p, 50p and 59.94p. After recording the 4K RAW data onto the Access Memory Card, the workflow will be the same as the newly announced PMW-F5. The HXR-IFR5 and the NEX-FS700Es optional firmware upgrade are planned to be available between April and June 2013 and will bring the possibility of 4K RAW acquisition to a wider range of users than ever before.  www.sony.co.uk To the right and left of the stage two additional tall LED displays, each with 141 tiles of Pixled F-12 displayed pre-programmed content including movie logo animations, and photos of the films characters.
