The future of HD film-making is on the way. Silicon Imaging and Cineform, together with our company, Atomic-VFX and Inspired Minority Pictures, are busy at the moment shooting a feature film, entitled Spoon, on a HD camera that is implementing a system never before used. The SI-1920HDVR combines a digital cinema class 1920x1080P camera with CineForm’s revolutionary Visually PerfectCineForm RAWcodec in an embedded PC architecture under Microsoft Windows XP. The camera is connected directly to the computer, so expensive tape stock is no longer an issue. It is also possible to attach a 160GB notebook hard drive to the camera for up to 4 hours of free-roaming shooting. The camera uses modern cinema PL mount lenses, as well as affordable F and compact C mount lenses that is connected to a single large format 2/3 CMOS sensor with an on-chip 12-bit A/D converter. This is then fed through wire into a ‘wafian’ box and into the PC. Originally developed for the independent film maker the camera provides superb image quality at a low cost. With release during the third quarter of the year the camera is costing in the area of only $20 000. Still in the Beta phase of development, but already exceeding everyones expectations, the SI-1920HDVR is the camera for the future of HD filming.
