VariCam LT Ver. 6.0 CineLive Workflows

VariCam LT Ver. 6.0 gives you two new ways to shoot.

Live Broadcast
  • Cover sports, concerts and more
  • Control multiple VariCam LTs and shade color remotely
  • Run silent with live-mode fan setting
  • Output dual live signals: one clean for broadcast and recording; one for status check, markers and menus
  • Output via fiber using third-party transport systems (DTS, ERECA, Multidyne, Telecast and more)
  • Record live performances (theater, sitcoms, concerts, stand-up, fashion) that aren't broadcast live
  • Shade color and switch live between multiple VariCam LTs
  • Stream live, color-shaded footage to projectors and displays in the venue
  • Record in 4K or HD 4:4:4 in AVC-Ultra or ProRes internally on each VariCam LT and match back to the live switch

CineLive Color Management

VariCam LT Ver. 6.0 supports two color workflows: broadcast color shading and cinematic color grading.

Broadcast color shading uses paint settings (black, white, chromas, iris, gain, etc.) to ensure the picture stays consistent across multiple cameras.

Color grading uses LUTs (Look Up Tables) and CDLs (Color Decision Lists) to manage color in-camera and create a precise color palette across all the shots that go into a feature.


VariCam LT Ver. 6.0 supports both. Shade live streams via remote control, capture V-Log in-camera, and grade color live in-camera and via PC — all at the same time.
