i-movix: New Products and Features on Display at the 2011 NAB Show
SprintCam Vvs HD is optimized for shoulder-mounted portable shooting, providing an unprecedented level of convenience and creativity in ultra-slow-motion action.
In addition to a dual output that allows a camera operator to shoot and record at the same time, segmented memory, ramping of speed within a replay, and integration of both live- and replay-view on the viewfinder, new features include a totally new operational control panel (OCP) with a more user-friendly design and extra functionalities. The 3D slow-motion capture option also is available on demand.
"I-MOVIX has established itself as the standard for ultra slow motion, with SprintCam systems contributing to some real breakthrough broadcasting during 2010 — such as the first 3D ultra-slow-motion coverage. In 2011 we'll be introducing further product developments to broaden the range of our solutions for ultra slow motion in all applications, together with new partnerships that will help make SprintCam even more widely available," explained Laurent Renard, CEO of I-MOVIX.
The SprintCam Vvs HD system comprises the latest generation Vision Research high-speed HD camera; an operational control panel that provides broadcast-quality color matrix and control of frame rate choice; a slow-motion remote that allows the user to select a video sequence and instantly replay it with an HD-SDI output for live broadcast or storage on any HD-SDI recorder for a later use; and the camera control unit, which provides control of the slow-motion instant replay, camera control, and data interface between the camera, EVS server, or SDI recorder.
