SONY VENICE Extension Unit
CBK-3610XS VENICE Extension System
Unparalleled flexibility with uncompromised image quality
The VENICE Extension System (CBK-3610XS) enables cabled separation of the VENICE camera body and image sensor block by up to 5.5m with no degradation in image quality.
The kit consists of a front panel cover, image sensor block case and a 2.7m (9 ft) cable with an additional 2.7m (9 ft) extension cable. (VENICE camera is not included.)
The Extension System also has an HD-SDI output and a 24V output for powering accessories such as lens servo motors and monitoring. Multiple screw holes on all surfaces make it easy to affix additional accessories and fit with a wide variety of rigs. The Extension System is fully compatible with all existing and future VENICE cameras upgraded to V3 or higher firmware.
Availability of the VENICE Extension System and Version 3.0 Firmware is scheduled for early 2019.
Enhanced mobility and maneuverability
Separation of the camera body and image sensor block by up to 5.5m enables exceptional flexibility when filming with gimbals, handheld, in helicopter/underwater housings, with custom rigs such as for 3D/VR contents and shooting scenes in confined spaces such as vehicles. The separated image block is just 1.9 kg (4lb) with PL mount and 1.4kg (3lb) with E-mount for the utmost shooting flexibility.
Uncompromised image quality
When shooting with CBK-3610XS there’s no degradation in image quality. Whether shooting with a standard 2.7m separation or using the extension cable for a maximum 5.5m separation, you can be sure the image quality is the same as shooting with VENICE in standard configuration.
CBK-3610XS preserves full use of the advanced features VENICE offers such as its built-in 8-step glass ND filter system, Dual Base ISO and more.
