Panavision bringing 8K Millennium DXL2 camera to NAB

WOODLAND HILLS, CA — Panavision will showcase its Millennium DXL2 8K ( camera at the National Association of Broadcasters Show, which runs April 7th through the 12th in Las Vegas. Technology leaders from Panavision and its subsidiary Light Iron will also share their vision and expertise during panel discussions throughout the conference.
The DXL2 is the evolution of a camera ecosystem built by Panavision based on the input of cinematographers. Introduced in February, the DXL2 features a Red Monstro 8K VV sensor with 16-plus stops of dynamic range, improvements in image quality and shadow detail, a native ISO setting of 1600, and ProRes 4K up to 60fps. Images are presented on the camera in log format using new Light Iron Color 2 science (LiColor2), which streamlines the 8K pipeline and provides quick access to high-quality RAW images. Additional features to the DXL2 include a custom-made, integrated PX-Pro color spectrum filter offering a significant increase in color separation and dramatically higher color precision to the image; a built-in Preston MDR; 24v power; and expanded direct-to-edit features.
Panavision is working with partners to host hands-on demonstrations of the DXL2. NAB attendees can visit the Vitec booth (C6025) and Vitec Creative Solutions (C9544) to see it first hand. Attendees also have a chance to hear directly from members of the Panavision and Light Iron team as they participate in several discussions at the show.
