Silicon Imaging designs cameras with the needs of the independent filmmaker in mind. Our cameras encompass new paradigms in camera acquisition and recording architecture to help the filmmaker reach their creative potential. Using our ground-breaking new 2K Digital Cinema series cameras powered by direct-to-disk RAW acquisition, the choice between the portability of a highly compressed tape-based system versus the high image quality delivered by an uncompressed DDR is erased.
The SI-2K series cameras combine a DCI-spec 2K sensor with CineForm's revolutionary Visually Perfect® CineForm RAW™codec in an embedded Intel Core 2 Duo powered architecture. It delivers a direct-to-disk recording platform with unprecedented image quality, 11-F stops of dynamic range, an intuitive 7” LCD touchscreen interface, sharp OLED electronic viewfinder option, IT-friendly connectivity, battery powered operation, and up to 4-hours of continuous shooting on its hot-swap 160GB notebook hard drive.
The SI-2K series utilizes a single large format 2/3” CMOS sensor with an on-chip 12-bit A/D converter for a complete digital pathway from sensor to disk, minimizing noise and maximizing dynamic range. Its interchangeable optical assembly enables the use of high quality modern cinema PL mount lenses, as well as affordable and compact C mount lenses.
