upgradeable open-platform hardware

The OCTOPUS CAMERA uses the compact Intel® NUC as the processing board. Components can be removed and upgraded including the board itself when newer boards are available.

interchangeable specialist image sensors

XIMEA provide a range of high-performance imaging modules which can be interchanged allowing the OCTOPUS CAMERA to have a fully upgradable image sensor.

Specialist sensors available include specifications such as full-frame 35mm, Global Shutter, native Monochrome and more.

open standard formats and technologies

Out of the box, the OCTOPUS CAMERA records losslessly compressed 4K RAW into CinemaDNG format. For longer record times, the camera also records high bitrate 10-bit HEVC.

Additional recording formats can be added with our SDK through Libavcodec or 3rd party libraries.
