ARRI Multicam is a simple-to-integrate fiber transmission system for multi-camera live broadcasts. The combination of ARRI cameras and the 1800 fiber system, controlled via an industry-standard RCP (Remote Control Panel), delivers a cinematic look with the efficiency of a live transmission system. Productions can record in-camera for post, finishing, or slow-motion, while simultaneously transmitting live HD or UHD signals to a broadcast facility, stage display, or social media channel using standard production environments like OB vans or studios.
A sensor mode defines an aspect ratio, which defines the area on the sensor that is being captured. A recording format define what is being recorded in-camera in the file. So while a sensor mode defines a certain number of photosites on the sensor, those may be recorded straight or up or down-sampled to create the pixels of the recording format. A distribution format defines how the final product is delivered to the consumer. The contents in the recording format is often up or down-sampled, cropped, repositioned or rotated in post before it becomes the final distribution format.An example: Choosing a 16:9 sensor mode on the camera allows the further choice of various recording formats. Choosing the 4K UHD recording format means that a 16:9 area from the sensor is read out, up-sampled in camera to a 4K UHD image and then recorded. In this case the recording format of 4K UHD is the same as the distribution format of 4K UHD. 2b1af7f3a8
