Beta test - live images and recording

Today more testing was completed with the AXIOM beta camera.

As mentioned this was the very first beta version shipped anywhere, and so we are testing from the very base point of the product. As you can see from the photo below it is without any casing and is very much at the beginning of the journey.

Since the delivery I have spent this last week testing, getting the camera up and running, getting a live image from the HDMI output, recording the output and making sure the clips recorded could be played back and transcoded.

At the end of today I did get to that final point, I have a .MOV ProRes 422 HQ clip recorded at 1080 30P from the sensor via HDMI and I have completed all the initial testing.

The camera works and I will go over the steps taken to get to that final point today in the next few posts.
