Sony Rialto VENICE Extension System (CBK-3610XS)

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.

Unprecedented shooting flexibility with the addition of the extension system and Version 3.0 firmware. The Extension System is fully compatible with all existing and future VENICE cameras upgraded to V3 or higher firmware. 

Sony Rialto is a lightweight and easy to use tethered extension system allows the camera body to detach from the image sensor block with no degradation in image quality. The image sensor block weighs 4 lbs with PL mount and 3 lbs using the native E-mount, and the cable system can extend from 9 or 18 feet, offering a highly configurable, flexible and portable method of operation.

The new Extension System is compatible with existing and new VENICE cameras. A user can quickly configure and freely use VENICE’s image sensor
block to capture uncompromising imagery, customizing the camera for specific scenarios in under 3 minutes with one 3mm Allen Wrench allowing for ultimate flexibility onset.

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.

As shooting environments and requirements become more advanced and demanding, VENICE users can expect the same image quality and integrity when
using the robust Extension System, which enables VENICE to become highly mobile and discreet for many mounting setups and filming scenarios including use with gimbals, handheld stabilizers, underwater and helicopter housings, and 3D/VR rigs, as well as in tight and unconventional spaces, such as in vehicles, on cranes or Russian arms. Developed for filmmakers, by filmmakers who sought out the ergonomics, small footprint and agile form factor the Extension System offers, while taking advantage of VENICE’s features including built-in 8-step mechanical Optical ND filter system and Dual Base ISO (ISO500/2500). 

The Sony VENICE camera body plate has a 24V DC input connector (Fischer 3pin). This makes it possible to provide 24V DC output at the camera head using a Fischer 3pin cable. When 12V DC output is required, the Hirose 4pin connector on the VENICE camera can be utilized by using Hirose 4pin to Fischer 3pin cable. The addition of the Extension System adds an HD-SDI output, a 12V or 24V output for powering accessories such as lens servo motors and monitoring. CBK-3610XS also comes with multiple mounting points on all surfaces to enable various rigs and accessories attachment.

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.

Advanced Features
