KineOS 6.0 for MAVO

MAVO is shiped with new KineOS6.0, an elegant and powerful firmware.

1. Whole-new Modern UI

UI is the interface between the camera and the cinematographer. Based on physical buttons, KineOS 6.0 is designed with simplified UI system, and facilitate the cinematographers in operation greatly. The new UI features new layout of key parameters, optimizes the main interface, improves a lot on readability and the configuration menu for easier use and better interaction. 

2. Compressed RAW (CinemaDNG) 3:1/5:1

This is a test version for compressed RAW(CinemaDNG). MAVO can record in-camera compressed RAW with CinemaDNG format, and the compression ratio is configurable, from 3:1 to 5:1! Da Vinci Resolve natively supports CinemaDNG, so that you can directly import, edit and grade the CinemaDNG footage in Da Vinci Resolve! No matter 3:1 or 5:1, every format can provide super high image quality and room for post-production.

Note: KineLOG is burned into CinemaDNG, but the color of CinemaDNG is very different from ProRes due to the processing of Da Vinci Resolve.

Note: When play back, CinemaDNG footage is very slow for current firmware. Playback will be improved in future by new firmware.

Note: Since CinemaDNG in Da Vinci Resolve has different workflow compared to ProRes, you can not load the LUT into cinemaDNG footages to restore what you see when shooting.

3. Oversampling

Oversampling can use all the pixels of the CMOS imaging sensor, and then output 4K/3K HD footages after internal delicate processing. The reduced size is very effective for fast production.

4. Anamorphic and Open Gate

Anamorphic was a technical choice for filming, but now an aesthetic preference. As more affordable anamorphic lenses, MAVO supports S35 anamorphic shooting will bring more filmic visual creations.

  • 4:3 anamorphic: 5376×3984; with 2x anamorphic lens, the desqueezed resolution is 10752×3984;
  • 6:5 anamorphic: 4864×3984; with 2x anamorphic lens, the desqueezed resolution is 9728×3984;
  • Open Gate: 6016×3984, all pixels of the CMOS imaging sensor are captured, leave maximum room for post processing.

Stability of this version: Evaluation.
