Adobe previews the world’s first cloud camera integration with RED and Fujifilm
Adobe previewed the world’s first cloud-camera integration with RED and Fujifilm. The new Camera to Cloud integrations built into RED Digital Cinema V-RAPTOR and V-RAPTOR XL camera systems and Fujifilm X-H2S Digital mirrorless cameras allow production teams to automatically transfer media from the production set to the cloud, allowing the post-production team to immediately begin working on the footage.
Recently announced Adobe Camera to Cloud integrations streamline the process by moving media directly from cameras into organized Frame.io folder structures, without the need for intermediate devices, saving both production costs and time. time. According to Adobe, the new evolution of the camera should become a standard within the next decade.
RED and Adobe have teamed up to introduce this technology so users can directly send RAW and proxy files to edit via the cloud.
Since their launch, the RED V-Raptor and V-Raptor XL have been C2C compatible thanks to the use of the Teradek CUBE 655. With this new update which will be available at the end of 2022, the RED V-Raptor and V-Raptor XL
be able to upload 8K REDCODE RAW files directly to the cloud from the camera. While this currently requires access to a high-bandwidth network (wireless or Ethernet), it represents the next tangible step into the future of cloud-based RAW workflows. Productions will be able to deliver original camera files (OCF) directly to the post office as they are filmed. Virtual productions or complex visual effects can send OCF directly to the VFX house and ProRes files can be automatically delivered directly to production
offices for immediate assembly. For productions that want the highest
Quality dailies, RAW video and audio files can be synced, color-corrected and transcoded in the cloud thanks to our integration with Colorfront.
This new update will also enable a native ProRes proxy workflow that contains every ounce of asset metadata available in camera. ProRes files are supported for playback on Frame.io, so these high-quality files can be viewed, shared, and edited without requiring additional transcoding. This means that you will be able to shoot in 8K RAW with a
Frame-accurate ProRes proxy and download 8K RAW, proxy (or both) as fast as your internet allows. It also accurately captures off-speed recordings.
The FUJIFILM X-H2S is the world’s first digital camera to natively integrate with Frame.io Camera to Cloud. When paired with the FT-XH file transfer attachment to establish an internet connection, photography workflows will be completely cloud-based, with Frame.io supporting high-resolution RAW files with tools for magnifier, navigation and annotation.
The X-H2S can download ProRes and proxy video files. You can share files or publish them without ever having to swap out a drive or camera card or any other type of physical media. The expected firmware release date for the X-H2S and FT-XH is Spring 2023.
