The camera’s Super35 4K sensor offers shallow depth of field looks, high sensitivity with minimal noise, and more accurate colors. It supports a massive 17 stops of dynamic range, ideal for handling the lighting contrasts of concerts, sporting events, and other live productions in SDR or HDR. The ARRI Look Library is built into the ALEXA 35 Live, providing 87 cinematic looks in a choice of three intensities plus several multicam presets for quickly assigning a look to live productions like talk shows, sports, or theatrical events.

The ALEXA 35 Live supports uncompressed 4K60 video at distances up to 1.2 miles using a hybrid fiber cable or up to 6.2 miles via tactical fiber cable. A second set of fiber and Ethernet tunnels are built into the system to provide the flexibility for additional video, audio, or control signals. The base station supports future-proof SMPTE ST2110 IP video and offers a SMPTE 2022-7 redundant network for reliability. You can easily set up and configure the ALEXA 35 Live using the Skaarhoj RCP, ARRI Webremote, or FCA/FBS or Skaarhoj Reactor web interfaces.
