Evertz and I-MOVIX Collaborate to Offer Integrated Ultra Motion Solutions
DreamCatcher provides enhanced story-telling capabilities that enable the production team to capture the event from all angles, while never missing a moment of the action. These captured events can instantly be replayed to reinforce the narrative or packaged after to re-tell and relive the moments of the event. The continuous ultra-motion recording capability of I-MOVIX X10 systems combined with the DreamCatcher platform is a powerful addition to the producer’s story-telling toolkit.
“Our collaboration with Evertz makes all X10 systems fully compatible with the popular DreamCatcher, meaning that Evertz customers can easily specify I-MOVIX technology as part of their preferred production setup,” said Laurent Renard, CEO of I-MOVIX.
The X10 range includes X10 UHD, which supports operation in a range of HD or 4K modes to meet differing production requirements. For very high-frame rate ultra-slow motion in 4K sports coverage, the system operates in USM mode to deliver instant replays of up to 1,000fps. For continuous non-stop recording, SSM mode delivers up to 120fps at 4Kp60. When operating in HD resolutions (1080p or 1080i) X10 UHD offers up to 600fps in continuous SSM mode, and up to 2,000fps in USM mode. The system can also complement these specialized applications by performing in a conventional live camera role.
