By PVC News Staff | July 02, 2009
The ARRILASER 2 represents the next generation of a film recorder that has established itself as an integral component of DI workflows all over the world. For 10 years the ARRILASER has set the standard in image quality and maintained an unrivalled level of performance. With over 250 units in almost constant operation worldwide, it is the backbone of the film recording industry.
Supporting a 16-bit image path and recording speeds that double those of previous models, the ARRILASER 2 will transform the DI capabilities of any facility where it is installed. In an industry defined by deadlines, recording speeds of 0.9 sec./frame in 2K and 1.5 sec./frame in 4K allow the ARRILASER 2 to meet the uncompromising needs of film-out clients by vastly improving turnaround times.
Utilizing a Linux-based software package, the ARRILASER 2 features a newly designed GUI that gives a constant overview of recording jobs in progress. The new software offers unprecedented flexibility of operation and speeds up daily operations considerably.
The main advantage of the new software is its ability to control and operate multiple lasers with the ease of just one application. The new client-server architecture permits all ARRILASER software applications to be accessed from anywhere in the network.
The ARRILASER 2 has a range of upgrades, allowing the functionality to expand in line with the needs of individual businesses.
