The firmware update will facilitate a collaborative cloud-based workflow in a variety of production environments.
Canon U.S.A., Inc., has announced a firmware update for the Canon EOS C300 Mark III and EOS C500 Mark II digital-cinema cameras that will enable Frame.io Camera to Cloud compatibility, facilitating a collaborative cloud-based workflow in a variety of production environments.
The C2C workflow sends secure, high-quality, low-bandwidth H.264 proxies, 4K 10bit 4:2:2 H.265 (HEVC) files and uncompressed audio files with matching timecode and filenames to the Frame.io cloud platform. (Frame.io is now an Adobe company.)
Using a third-party WiFi, 5G or LTE streaming encoder connected to the camera output, the Frame.io C2C workflow can automatically distribute clips to editors (and others) the moment the director calls, “Cut.” This enables an immediate review of footage on any authorized user’s device on or off set anywhere in the world.
The firmware update for the C300 and C500 Mark II will be available later this month.
