Sony has announced the next two firmware updates for its Burano CineAlta digital cinema camera. The new firmware updates, BURANO Version 1.1 and Version 2.0, are planned to be released over the next year and will include additional recording formats, new de-squeeze options and monitoring updates as well as other features and requests from the cinematic community.

Planned for release in late June 2024, Burano Version 1.1 includes new features for live event production and the addition of a 1.5x de-squeeze display for anamorphic lenses. Version 1.1 will add S700 Protocol over Ethernet which enables remote control of a Burano using a remote control panel. Controllable settings include exposure, white balance, paint, and others (depending on the RCP model.) Version 1.1 also enables support for Multi Matrix Area Indication. This feature allows users to adjust targeted colours during Multi Matrix operation.

Planned to be released in March 2025 or later, Burano Version 2.0 will offer yet more new features and improvements, requested from the user community, including new recording formats, new 1.8x de-squeeze, and monitoring improvements.

Version 2.0 will include new recording formats including a new 3.8K Full Frame crop that leverages nearly the entire sensor and can shoot up to 120 fps. This new recording mode allows the filmmaker to prioritise faster sensor performance depending on the needs of their application.
BURANO Firmware Version 2.0 will also add 1.8x de-squeeze setting as well as additional high frame rate (S & Q) modes including 66, 72, 75, 88, 90, 96, 110 fps.

Version 2.0 also offers monitoring improvements, including standardised SDI video output for monitoring across X-OCN and XAVC and an improved on-screen display output which places camera status information outside of the image. Version 2.0 will also include View Finder Gamma Display Assist while using S-Log for monitoring.

BURANO Version 2.0 also includes additional exposure tools (High/Low Key) derived from the flagship VENICE camera system. Version 2.0 will also expand white balance memory presets from 3 to 8 and support Active/High Image Stabilization in Full-Frame 6K and Super 35 1.9K 16:9 imager modes.

Finally, Version 2.0 will add breathing compensation and image stabilization metadata in X-OCN.
