ACID Cameras have been designed for maximum HD performance in
any studio production environment. They offer best-in-class resolution,
sensitivity and signal to noise ratio, plus unique UltrachromeHR
outputs for chroma key applications.
While there are many camera choices available today, none address
the fundamental quality problems that arise when combining live action
capture within virtual environments. Standard HD video has bandwidth
limited chroma content. When processing chroma keys for virtual
environments, band limited chroma contains insufficient information to
create a true high-resolution key signal from original content. As a
result, chroma key edge quality is always band limited, as you simply
cannot create edges with half the information ideally required.
The solution from Ross consists of a proprietary full bandwidth color
signal that is output from Ross ACID UCHR cameras. ACID Cameras provide
standard SMPTE 4:2:2 video outputs as well as adding a new, unique
output called UltraChromeHR This output signal contains full bandwidth
color information in a patent pending 0:4:4 coding format from the
camera image sensors. This signal contains full bandwidth color
information. The standard 4:2:2 and UltraChromeHR outputs are received
by the Carbonite UltraChromeHR chroma keying system
and internally combined to create beautiful keys from the resultant
4:4:4 signals, an so offer unprecedented performance when used as Chroma
Key sources for virtual productions.
However, even if you don’t use chroma keys, Ross ACID
cameras produce spectacular video images in normal studio production.
The ACID Cameras are full featured cameras that capture the very highest
quality images. They can be equipped with viewfinders, output adaptors,
and all the accessories necessary for full studio usage; and of course
fit incredibly well with Ross robotic systems.
