The EOS C500 offers two forms of 4K origination. You can dynamically select DCI (SMPTE 2048-1:2011 standard) or the alternative television- centric Quad-HD (SMPTE 2036-1:2009 and ITU-R BT.1769 standards) source image formats, and output a selection of 4K, 2K and HD digital sampling formats.
Canon collaborates with some of the most respected names in the industry to ensure seamless integration with third-party systems and accessories. The dual 3G SDI terminals provide 4K/2K output to external digital recording units, portable and master monitors, and color grading systems affording maximum flexibility to production and post-production teams.
For 4K and 2K recording, uncompressed output is delivered to external recording systems via built-in dual 3G SDI ports. Dual HD-SDI monitor outputs support external live monitoring. Simultaneously, HD content can be written to dual onboard CF cards to provide proxy video for offline NLE systems.
