Building an open source digital cinema camera

Functional Prototype Presentation

Lecturers:    Herbert Pötzl, Axiom Technical Lead
Sebastian Pichelhofer, Project Lead, Software Development

The goal of the community driven apertus° project is to create a variety of powerful, free (in terms of liberty) and open cinema tools that we as filmmakers love to use. The idea of building an open cinema camera using an Elphel camera for this particular purpose was born in 2006, found many followers over the years and ultimately resulted in this project entitled "apertus" (word definition).

apertus°' latest efforts are to build the first ever open hardware and free software digital cinema camera from scratch: apertus° Axiom. The prototype camera is now being presented to the public for the first time in Austria.

Lightning Talks

Lightning Talks are an entertaining format of short lectures presenting current ideas, ongoing projects and particularly work-in-progress. The length of a talk is strictly limited to 5 minutes.

You're invited to add your lightning talk below. Don't hesitate to apply even if you feel your presentation isn't perfectly formulated, this isn't expected for such rather spontaneous talks. Chronological order subject to change:

Who? What? Beamer? record?
* You: your talk
* You: your talk


Buffet, Wine und Ambient/Downtempo Chillout Musik

Kay tossed in this shouldn't be called afterparty b/c a party might scare people away to join in. Don't expect a "party party" (thank godness!) or drunk ppl, rather 'socializing', often with very nice chit-chat . Don't expect a sophisticated cold buffet and what not (sorry) rather spreads on sandwiches/dark bread with some veggies, mingling & nibbles. Good against premature drop outs of starving visitors. Provision of background music depends solely on the attendance of the one member that owns a transportable music playing device with a 3.5mm jack and who knows how to connect it to the PA. We normally have some bottles of excellent wine but usually lack adequate intact glasses. In light of the many risks and uncertainties you should understand that we cannot assure you that the forward-looking statements contained in this wiki page will be realized.
