ARRI ALEXA XT Seminar with Guenter Noesner

We had a close look at one of the most popular digital cinematography acquisition tools available today. ARRI's Guenter Nosener presented an overview of the ALEXA XT. An ALEXA XT was on hand with the newly- introduced WCU-4 wireless lens control system.

The presentation focused on the new capabilities of the ALEXA XT, including:

4:3 sensor configurations
Internal full spectrum IRND filtration
Internal uncompressed ARRIRAW recording up to 120fps
ARRIRAW workflow options with CODEX download options
New wireless lens & camera remote control WCU-4 with metadata implementation
New ground breaking MASTER ANAMORPHIC lenses
