From Canon: Free Canon firmware upgrades for Cinema EOS System cameras deliver improved basic performance, including support for ITU-R BT.2020 color space
Tokyo, September 4, 2014 - Canon Inc. and Canon Marketing Japan Inc. announced today in Japan that the company will make available in November 2014 free firmware upgrades for four Cinema EOS System cameras, as well as Cinema RAW Development 1.3, an updated version of Canon’s Cinema RAW Development software, for the EOS C500 and EOS C500 PL digital cinema cameras.
Canon’s Cinema EOS System lineup of digital cinematography cameras and lenses has earned the praises of a wide range of professionals working in Hollywood and elsewhere within the motion picture production industry. The new firmware upgrades, which will deliver enhanced basic performance to effectively respond to the advanced needs of various users, are being offered for the EOS C500, EOS C500 PL, EOS C300 and EOS C300 PL cameras while the updated development software for 4K Cinema RAW footage targets the EOS C500 and EOS C500 PL models.© Support for ITU-R BT.2020 next-generation broadcast standard color space (For EOS C500 and EOS C500 PL)
Offering compliance with the ITU-R BT.2020 color space employed in the 4K TV broadcasting tests carried out earlier this year in Japan, the firmware upgrade for the EOS C500 and EOS C500 PL facilitates the capture of high-resolution video supporting the color space employed in the next-generation broadcast standard. When used in combination2 with Canon’s DP-V3010 professional-use 4K display (released in January 2014), the system effectively responds to input and output needs within the realms of next-generation motion-picture production and broadcasting.

The upgraded Cinema RAW Development software features the addition of 3D-LUT for converting from Cinema Gamut/DCI-P3+ to such highly versatile color space standards as ITU-R BT.709 and DCI-P3, enabling efficient video editing while maintaining low-chroma color reproduction and high-chroma color gradation. Additionally, support for EDLs (edit decision lists)3 enables only necessary time code-designated segments to be converted to the DPX and ProRes formats suitable for editing, effectively doing away with the need to process unnecessary files. Also, when using a PC equipped with Intel Iris Pro graphics, Cinema RAW Development 1.3 makes possible faster development of 4K Cinema RAW data.4 Improved operability when setting color temperature of white balance (For EOS C500, EOS C500 PL, EOS C300 and EOS C300 PL)
The new firmware upgrades contribute to improved operability by allowing users to easily set color temperature values using the camera’s FUNC button.
Canon plans to exhibit products supporting the ITU-R BT.2020 color space at the company’s booth during the IBC2014 broadcast technology tradeshow, to be held in the Netherlands from September 12 to 16. B&H
