According to Weisscam “SOHA“ will be introduced at NAB 2012 and offers an advanced technology platform and total scalability through its unique flexibility along with the T-CAM. Professional digital film camera customers can be assured that the “SOHA” platform will greatly extend the life cycle of the camera while significantly improving their return on investment.
After more than two years of in-house development, WEISSCAM and the “SOHA” platform are set to change the professional camera market. Going forward every “T-CAM“ will be equipped with this exciting new “SOHA” hardware.
As Weisscam DoP and CEO, Stefan Weiss comments: “We always wanted to develop a platform that outlasts the short product cycles that are current within the industry. With our new “SOHA” platform we can build cameras that are long lasting, extendable, flexible and always easy to use.”

To achieve this innovative objective, WEISSCAM created the “SOHA” platform with the following design concepts:
Interchangeable sensor board (2/3”; Super16 and Super35 format).
High performance interface (up to 1.200MByte/s) for industry standard recorders.
Uncompressed RAW and HD output.
Modular software architecture.
The core architecture of the “SOHA“ platform provides customers with major operational and financial benefits. Sensor boards can be changed to cover all formats or to upgrade the hardware to the latest sensor design without the need to buy a new camera.
Although “SOHA” delivers a highly complex technological solution, the intuitive user-friendly interface allows operators to seamlessly use the camera under all shooting conditions and environments which was a major design requirement of the platform design for DoP/CEO Stefan Weiss:
“We see it as our responsibility to simplify the application of high technology so that even first time users find our products completely intuitive. The “T-CAM“ with “SOHA“ is the embodiment of this concept and completely empowers the creative process enabling film makers to maintain total focus and immersion in their passion – making films!”
