Arri lanserer en update i slutten av 2014 til Amira som vil gjøre den istand til å skyte 4 K. Amira vil få et UHD update med 3840 x 2160 opp til 60 bps. Alexa XT har en løsning med «open gate» som ennå er i test fasen En slik software update er ikke lansert ennå for Alexa modellen men det kommer nok noe etterhvert, skjønt bedre pixler er ofte bedre enn flere pixler.

While widespread adoption of 4K or UHD for broadcast is still a long way off, an increasing number of content owners are becoming concerned that they ought to safeguard the longevity of their programs by ensuring that they will be suitable for UHD transmission, should that become a standard in the future.
For those productions that do need to generate UHD deliverables, AMIRA will now offer the ability to record all ProRes codecs in Ultra High Definition 3840 x 2160 resolution directly onto the in-camera CFast 2.0 cards, at up to 60 fps. This feature, activated through an affordable software license (and a sensor calibration for existing AMIRAs), comes in response to feedback from AMIRA customers, some of whom have been quizzed about 4K deliverables by clients. It is made possible by the camera’s exceptional image quality, its processing power, and its reprogrammable system architecture.
Whether a production is pursuing a UHD workflow all the way through to distribution, or simply wishes to archive in UHD in order to future-proof itself against industry developments, AMIRA now offers an easy solution that requires no additional processes in postproduction.
