The XDCA-FS7 Extension Unit offers multi-camera support for PXW-FS7 including Apple ProRes 422 encoding on the internal XQD cards as well as 4K Raw support for external recorders such as the Sony AXS-R5 and the Convergent Design Odyssey 7Q via 3G-SDI.

While the PXW-FS7 XDCAM camera comes with internal XAVC and MPEG-2 recording on XQD media you can attach the optional XDCA-FS7 Extension Unit. The box is attachable via a MultiPin connector so there are no hassles about cables.

The Extension Unit offers additional I/O connectors like Timecode and Genlock for multi-camera operation or the possibility to use common V-Mount batteries. It also allows RAW data output to record 12-bit RAW footage on the AXS-R5 (in combination with HXR-IFR5), or another third party RAW recorder via the FS RAW Interface. The XDCA-FS7 will encode the video stream into the Apple ProRes 422 codec, which is then recorded on to the internal XQD media.

Apple ProRes 422 recording - A built-in Full HD ProRes encoding function enables ProRes-format recording to an XQD card in the camera. Estimated * Firmware update, early 2015.
