Open Gate ProRes 4K Cine
A camera format unique for SXT cameras; it not only provides the cine standard of 4096 pixels across, but allows for VFX markers or up/down repositioning in post through the extra height of 2636 pixels.
6:5 ProRes 2K Anamorphic
2K image quality with anamorphic lenses. The camera creates a ready-to-view ProRes file in the 2K DCI delivery format (2048 x 858), so no debayering, cropping, rescaling or de-squeezing is needed in post.
6:5 ProRes 4K Cine Anamorphic
4K image quality with anamorphic lenses. The camera creates a ready-to-view ProRes file in the 4K DCI delivery format (4096 x 1716), so no debayering, cropping, rescaling or de-squeezing is needed in post.
4:3 ProRes 2.8K
Popular for spherical 16:9 or 1.85:1 shows, this format provides extra height for VFX tracking markers and repositioning in post. It has the immediacy and speed of ProRes, plus a lower data rate than Open Gate and works with smaller image circle than Open Gate.
Open Gate ProRes 3.4K
Designed for those who want the maximum image area and pixel count from a Super 35 ALEXA (3424 x 2202) in combination with the immediacy and speed of ProRes.
16:9 ARRIRAW 3.2K
The largest number of pixels that can be processed at 120 fps (3168 x 1782). Use the full image area with ARRI Super 35 PL mount lenses, or gain extra room for repositioning, stabilizing and tracking when using lenses with an image circle covering a 2.8K image area.
Built-in Remote Control Features
With its built-in radio and lens motor electronics, this camera makes working on set faster and more efficient. Plug the ARRI lens motors directly into the camera, turn on the wireless hand unit (like the WCU-4) and off you go. Integrating the wireless and lens control infrastructure into the camera not only saves time, but also weight, as a setup with an ALEXA SXT EV and an external motor control box would be more cumbersome to cable and heavier in sum. Compatibility with the ARRI hand units, like the WCU-4, as well as with the cmotion hand units makes this a supremely flexible tool. SXT camera rental in Camaleon Rental.
Full Flexibility for Monitoring on set.
Also the Alexa SXT and SXR cameras features three totally independent HD SDI outputs. That makes possible, for instance to display the LUT to the director or client, while displaying the LogC on the DIT screen and show, let’s say, a REC709 with high peaking and status info to the focus puller.
New on board color management Alexa SXT cameras feature the beloved and outstanding ALEV III 3.4K sensor already featured in the other cameras of the ARRI cinema line up, but they add to it the cutting edge technology of the Alexa65. Those high performance electronic components mix the last generation of FPGA processors with a fast internal backplane and are the basis of a completely revisited image processing process that feature advanced pixel correction and optional noise reduction That gives as a result a global improvement of the image quality.

As for its “ancestors”, the Alexa SXT cameras feature the popular sensor modes such as Open Gate 4:3 and 16:9, being able to deliver both Arriraw or ProRes up to a 120 fps. The creation of on board LUTs has been made possible by using an advanced color management engine, originally developed for the Amira.
Single speed mode
Switching between normal and high speed mode is a thing of the past with ALEXA SXT cameras, as all frame rates can be chosen directly in one single speed mode.
Keep your look from prep to post
A new look management architecture has been incorporated to the ALEXA SXT, in order to make it easier and controlable, this new tool offers the control of the look from preproduction to postproduction. With the ARRI COLOR TOOL and ARRI Look File you can create new looks compatibles with ALEXA Mini and AMIRA. Having the possibility of storing the look information in the metadata of the recorded files makes easy live grading on set, as automated dailies and editing with looks.
New color management
By using the native color gammas of the ALEV III, this engine grants a totally new color control with at the end of the day means more creative freedom for filmmakers. Aside of that, the on set preview has been improved too by including the possibility to use the new Rec2020, so the creation of dailies and organizing of the footage can be even faster.
A new type of look file, the ALF-2 (Arri Look File 2) contains the ASC CDL (color decision list) as well as 3D LUTs. Alf-2 files are created by a new app Arri Look Creator, which can also import standard 3D LUTs. Alf-2 files are compatible between Alexa SXT camera, Amira camera and Alexa Mini camera. Once they are loaded on camera, CDL or 3D LUT settings can be applied to any of the HD SDI output and to the ProRes recording. So it is possible to match exactly the image with footage coming from “old” Alexa cameras, or find a totally new look.
SXT/SXR camera does support the same media used by Alexa XT camera, plus they are also compatible with new SXR high-speed and storage modules. Both the 1 Tb and the 2 TB SXR capture drives are capable of a stunning 20Gbit/second recording speed. To insure the best workflow and compatibility, every kind of media has is own adaptor available to be used on the SXT line up. SXT camera rental in Camaleon Rental.
