ARRI has announced the launch of the CCM-1, a 7” onboard monitor that provides full camera control and menu access for the ALEXA 35 and ALEXA Mini LF.
The monitor has been developed in response to feedback from camera operators who prefer to judge framing and exposure with an onboard monitor rather than a viewfinder, and has been developed in collaboration with SmallHD.
The CCM-1 has a 7” IPS LCD HD display which is “easily viewable in daylight from a range of viewing angles” and connects via the camera’s VF connector, leaving both SDI outputs free for other uses. VF cables of up to 10m in length are supported, while the CCM-1 can alternatively be connected via SDI like a normal onboard monitor, “allowing application of ALF-2 and ALF-4 look files, full access to the SmallHD toolset, and use with third-party cameras. Multiple other connection options facilitate different camera configurations and use cases.”
ARRI stated that the CCM-1 is available to order now and will be supported in the upcoming ALEXA 35 SUP 1.2 and ALEXA Mini LF SUP 7.3 software update packages.
