MAVO Edge, a brand-new large-format 8K cine camera, 8K 75P CMOS imaging sensor and cutting-edge image processing engine with whole-new carbon fiber camera body, allowing cinematographers to create without boundaries, no matter for feature movies, production with VFX, high-end TV commercial and series, even wild-life documentaries.
Featuring internal motorized full-spectrum e-ND, more industry-standard ports and dual SSD media slots, Kinefinity brings Apple ProRes RAW to the MAVO Edge as an in-camera codec to make the RAW workflow easier. MAVO Edge also provides dual 1.5G/3G SDI outputs with metadata and audio transmission, to enhance the compatibility with third-party accessories like external recorders and 1.5G monitors.
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. Additionally, 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.
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. In addition, Kinefinity integrates the motorized full-spectrum e-ND system inside the camera for the first time. Switching between clear glass and e-ND filter is motorized and built-in as expected; the e-ND filter can cover the wide range from 2 stops to 7 stops with continuous adjustment at high precision.
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. The dual slots design allows for two KineMAG Nanos to record the same clips simultaneously and form an extra RAID1 backup. 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.
Comprehensive Power Solution
- An innovative hybrid battery plate: it 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.
- 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.
- Specialized UPS power contacts at the bottom of MAVO Edge: Movcam brings dedicated KineKIT for MAVO Edge, especially the innovative 15mm baseplate with UPS function powered by two NP-F550 type batteries. The contacts can also work as UPS power source to supply uninterrupted power to the camera when replacing V-mount batteries or BP-U30 type batteries.
MAVO Edge is a brand-new large-format 8K cine camera with unprecedented 45 million pixels and state-of-art image quality in ProRes RAW, making every single frame comparable to those captured by high-end SLR cameras. All these cutting-edge technologies not only ease story-tellers, documentary makers and video-content creators to capture incredibly pleasing images, but offer a future-proof creative tool to keep innovating, keep moving forward.
