If AXIOM Beta has the processing power, can you make HDR mode? I know it's already a lot of Dynamic Range (max. 15 stops) but adding 2 more stops in Binning 2K so the maximum is 17 stops or more? It would beat a lot of competitors. If it has the processing power, what about debayering binned 2K in-camera than shoot in 3 times the framerate, using processor power again to get 19 stops of Dynamic Range, debayered, Uncompressed RGB 4:4:4 (no chroma-subsampling), 2K Anamorphic.
Regarding your question:
The CMV12000 has a native dynamic range of 10 f-stops and by tweaking the piecewise linear response mode parameters of the sensor (https://wiki.apertus.org/index.php/PLR) you can trade noise levels and light sensitivity for additional dynamic range in the highlights. The option of having even and odd columns with different exposure times also exists as sensor feature but leaves you with motion differences and the challenge how to combine the two different exposure frames back together. We did not follow this approach so far but of course the Beta does support it.
Capturing higher framerates and combining frames together is indeed something we want to try in the future.
Seeing this is more a question than a task I am closing this.
