Frame.io Camera to Cloud
Frame.io launched a new major service designed to further integrate the film production set with the Cloud. With Camera to Cloud users can send proxies with synced audio and timecode from compliant professional cameras to the cloud instantly. This can be done either via current 4G and future 5G networks or Wi-Fi. Frame.io partnered with Teradek, Sound Devices and Colorfront to provide an end-to-end pipeline with certified equipment. At launch compatible cameras include RED DSMC2, ARRI ALEXA and AMIRA with more to follow. The service is currently in beta and will be available at no additional cost to users with paid Pro and Team Frame.io accounts as well as Enterprise accounts on a project by project basis.
SmallHD Focus Pro OLED
SmallHD has released a new version of one of their latest on-camera monitors. The new Focus Pro OLED Limited Edition comes in White to match the latest RED Komodo Stormtrooper cameras, however thanks to its SDI functionality it can be used with other professional cameras. The Focus Pro OLED has a full set of professional monitoring tools including custom 3D LUT support, and features a bright, 1080 touch screen display with a RED Komodo Camera Control License included.

Sony has launched the Technicolor Look Collection with 22 LUTs for the Sony VENICE. These new looks can be used for both on-set monitoring and post-production. When used in-camera for monitoring purposes, the VENICE supported the new .art format available since the launch of firmware v6.0. This LOOK Library has been specifically developed for the VENICE colour science and leverages Technicolors legendary expertise in the field. Each look includes a .art file for improved in-camera monitoring, as well as SDR and HDR .cube files for post-production and delivery.
