Features

12.5k stitched resolution from four portrait orientated 6k sensors shooting open gate with high quality glass. Perfect for high-end VR headsets, giant screen projections or oversampling!

Meta Three camera can record footage in ProRes 422. That’s important, not just in pixel quality but in color detail.  You can also shoot in h.265 with high bitrate.

The Meta Three camera has full electronic focus and aperture control, featuring individual lens focus, plus reset to pre-set settings. The aperture is controllable between f3.5 to f22. The lenses are calibrated to default to infinity focus and if you shoot at f/5.6 no focus adjustment is necessary.

The Meta Three can live stream in 8k either through its ethernet port or HDMI ports using 3rd party software such as Voysys; locally for a ‘director’s view’ or online to YouTube, Facebook or private servers.

There is no better formation for getting four lenses close. They are so close in fact that they stitch beautifully. Also, as these lenses are so sharp all across the plane, they look fantastic wherever on the overlap you choose to stitch them.

The camera is built to work with V-Lock batteries – the industry standard for pro shooters. Simply plug in to our solid LEMO socket and get rolling.

4x CFast 2.0 slots

4x HDMI sockets, for uncompressed live 4k DCI output in beautiful 10bit 4:2:2 during recording.

4x USB C connectors for storage extension

1x Gigabit Ethernet port for wired camera control and live streaming.

1x Sync port to the camera, allowing you to connect another or multiple cameras. For example, this would be great for shooting from drones – having a fifth lens on top of the UAV.

1x mini XLR recording, in sync, directly to the cards. (The camera also has internal mics for ‘scratch’ / sync audio).

The camera records internally on 4 CFast cards. Choose high quality cards for high bitrate recordings. For external recording four SSD’s can be attached via USB-C.

There are no fans or moving parts in the camera that generate noise, heat is dissipated via the full aluminium chassis. This means it can be used with orchestras or other audio sensitive environments.

Story

We love the Meta One and the Meta Two, they both have perfect use cases and are well tried and tested workhorses. Sometimes though, you just need more RESOLUTION!

Looking at the new industry of virtual productions, projection domes, new VR headsets and an increase in shooting 360 for ‘overcapture’ (16×9 output)… We knew we needed more pixels.

The Meta Three not only has 12.5k resolution but it is SHARP, the detail from this camera is amazing. Also, it’s highly controllable – we can set the focus and aperture digitally and on the fly!
