Big Sky at 18K
Sphere Studios has introduced a groundbreaking cinema camera known as The Big Sky, featuring an impressive 18K by 18K custom image sensor. This innovative camera provides 40 times the resolution of traditional 4K cameras and is built to provide extraordinary image fidelity. The image sensor equates to 316 megapixels (MP), and the camera is capable of recording at an impressive 120 frames per second (FPS).
The camera's development is geared toward the upcoming Sphere Entertainment Co's Las Vegas facility, which will feature the world's largest LED display at 580,000 square feet. To cater to this immersive experience, the Big Sky camera has been designed with the world's sharpest cinematic lens and advanced recording hardware capable of storing up to 32 terabytes per media magazine. Additionally, it comes equipped with a heat dissipation system that allows the camera to function in extreme weather conditions and underwater. It can also operate independently up to a mile away from the recording technology.
The entire system, including its image processing software, was developed in-house by Sphere Studios. This novel camera system has evolved from an array of existing 8K cameras into a compact, efficient, and quiet single-lens camera, addressing stabilization challenges and promising to revolutionize aerial and chase scene footage.
