At NAB2002 Thomson multimedia will debut its Viper FilmStream camera, which it hopes will set new standards for pure cinematography.
The Viper is designed to provide Technicolor-certified, extremely high-quality colorimetry. It uses a 9.2-mega pixel TrueProgressive frame CCD sensor and aspect ratios from HDTV to wide screen.
The camera delivers 4:4:4 RGB color sampling. The 12-bit linear signal passes to digital output uncompressed and unfiltered. The data is then converted to a 10-bit log and leaves the camera via the FilmStream transport layer.
