HBO Camera Assessment Series - Season Five


HBO Camera Assessment Series - Season Five

Map Pointer Icon Auditorium
16 Sep 2017
In its fifth season, HBO’s Camera Assessment Series continues the long-standing tradition of bringing state-of-the-art imaging technology into the ultimate testing environment to produce the most thorough production technology documentary of its kind. Cameras being assessed this year include the ARRI Alexa 65, RED EPIC-W 8K S35, Panavision Millennium DXL, Canon EOS C700, Panasonic Varicam PURE and the BlackMagic Ursa Mini. Each camera was subject to the same set of rigorous photographic scenarios including, Dynamic Range, Mixed Color Lighting, Motion, Wardrobe Color & Patterns, Skin Tone and Available Light.

Making full use of the Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos theatrical installation at the IBC Big Screen, the 60-minute documentary provides insight into the imaging capabilities of each camera while also offering some commentary from Directors of Photography, Producers and HBO Executives about how these types of tools are currently being used. The project is intended for a wide television and feature production audience. Deep technical knowledge is not required - anyone can derive value.

The screening is followed by a panel of the key representatives of this fascinating project.
