I-MOVIX, a Belgian company focused on extreme slow motion, plans to show a new version of SprintCam Vvs high definition (HD)—its ultra-slow-motion system for live HD broadcast production—at the NAB Show 2011, the company says in a written statement.
Featuring the outstanding quality, performance, and usability of SprintCam technology, SprintCam Vvs HD now operates at frame rates up to 2,700 fps in 1080i50 or up to 5,800 fps in 720p60 (more than 200 times slower than live action) and provides instant replay at native HD resolution and image quality, I-MOVIX says.
SprintCam Vvs HD is optimized for shoulder-mounted portable shooting, providing an unprecedented level of convenience and creativity in ultra-slow-motion action, the company says.
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, I-MOVIX says.
The 3D slow-motion capture option also is available on demand. 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.
