Introducing the FS RAW Interface Upgrade License for the PXW-FS5/FS5K

4K RAW output

  • The CBKZ-FS5RIF FS RAW I/F Upgrade License allows the PXW-FS5 and PXW-FS5K camcorders to output 4K (4096x2160) RAW at 23.98p, 25p, 29.97p, 50p, and 59.94p, recording to the AXS-R5 external recorder equipped with the HXR-IFR5 interface unit (both sold separately), or other compatible external recorders available from 3rd party vendors.

4K burst RAW output

  • Approximately 4 seconds of cached 4K RAW at 100 or 120 fps can be output as 23.98p, 25p, 29.97p, 50p, or 59.94p.

Continuous high speed 2K RAW output

  • You can output continuous 2K RAW at 100, 120, 200 or 240 fps as 23.98p, 25p, 29.97p or 59.94p.

Simultaneous XAVC HD internal recording (1920 x 1080)

  • While outputting 4K/2K RAW to the AXS-R5, it is possible to simultaneously record XAVC HD on SD memory card in the camcorder's internal media slot. One application of this could be that the RAW recording is used for production and XAVC HD for on-set review.
This option will be activated by a license key which will be purchased and installed by the end-user. Requires PXW-FS5/FS5K V2.0 or above firmware upgrade. Non-cancellable purchase, one way upgrade, and cannot be uninstalled.

The detailed upgrade instructions are provided within the CBKZ-FS5RIF package.
