Convergent Design Titan
Many cameras can shoot in 4K today, but most clients still want HD. How can a 4K camera become an enhanced HD device? Introducing Titan.
Titan is the latest option for the Odyssey & Apollo monitor/recorders. Titan uses one 4K camera to create three HD video signals. One frame is a SuperSample of the full image area and two are windows selected from within the original input. These windows can be panned smoothly through the 4K field and the three angles can be Live-Switched. All four HD signals can be recorded simultaneously in Apple ProRes with matching timecode and file names.
• Shoot a two-subject interview using one camera and Titan and record a Live-Switch of a two-shot plus separate close-ups.
• Record a panel presentation with a wide master plus a single on the moderator and another of the panel, all from one camera.
• Cover a House of Worship service with a shot of the clergyman, another of the chorus, and a wide view of them all – done with the modest investment of one camera and Titan.
• With Titan and a single installed camera capture an entire football field from the 50 yard line, plus follow a player as he runs the course of the field.
Eliminate the render time of reframing in post. Deliver edited content as well as the complete separate angles to your client at the end of the shoot. Shoot a multi-cam job with a kit you can fit in a single backpack.
Titan accepts 4K video signals over HDMI and SDI (original Odyssey7Q limited to 3G-SDI). Titan also accepts 4K RAW data from the Sony FS5, FS7 & FS700 cameras. Live-Switching is available as cuts and dissolves, and an Edit Decision List is generated as an .EDL file for conforming an edit in post. (Read More..)
The Cinematic VariCam Look in Your Hands
The VariCam LT features outstanding image quality that allows you to achieve your “VISION”. The advanced grading tools, in-camera dailies and proxy recording capabilities that are built into the VariCam LT are a “REVOLUTION” in streamlining workflow
Compact Size, Light Weight and Top Cinema Quality – The VariCam LT!
The VariCam LT has a compact and lightweight magnesium body and offers same picture quality specifications as the larger VariCam 35 cinema camera. The super 35mm image sensor, which is the same imager as VariCam 35, features wide dynamic range, an expansive color gamut, and high sensitivity for 4K image acquisition. It has dual native ISO settings of 800 and 5000. The native 5000 ISO allows for clean shooting in very low light situations. Its size and design facilitate a wide array of shooting styles including comfortable ergonomic shoulder mounted operation or use on gimbals and drones.
The Cinematic VariCam Look, Stunning Image Quality Same Imager as VariCam 35
The VariCam LT is equipped with the super 35mm single-chip MOS sensor developed especially for the VariCam 35. It offers 4K (4096 x 2160) and UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution, and boasts high sensitivity, low noise, wide dynamic range and cinematic depth of field. This sensor received The Hollywood Post Alliance Engineering Excellence Award 2015.
14+ Stops of Wide Latitude
The camera has a dynamic range of 14+ stops. This wide dynamic range assures accurate image rendering over the entire image, from dark areas to highlights. Even in very dimly lit scenes, which are particularly important in movie production, the VariCam LT provides low-noise images without any compromise in picture quality. “V-Log” is capable of creating the 14+ stops of dynamic range offered by the VariCam LT image sensor, greatly enhancing look creation capability.
Dual Native ISO of 800/5000
The VariCam LT has two native ISO settings: 800 and 5000. This means the VariCam LT achieves very high sensitivity while maintaining a low noise level at 5000 ISO. The noise level at 5000 ISO is nearly identical to that seen at 800 ISO. In order to achieve this function two dedicated analog circuits are implemented on every pixel of the imager of the the VariCam LT for each native ISO before gain processing. This allows the camera to achieve much higher sensitivity without increased noise. Normally noise is introduced in the gain process of rating ISO in digital cameras. This functionality is revolutionary for low light scene shooting. Especially this ISO 5000 enable to capture under the natural light keeping the mood making more realistic. (Read More..)

What’s New? Something different beyond Sony HXR-NX5
Film-makers and Videographers are looking forward to the replacement of the Sony HXR-NX5 HD Camcorder. NX5 is an affordable HD Camcorder based on AVCHD technology with Three 1/3 – inch Exmore CMOS sensors capturing chip and SDI out exclusively for demanding professionals. It’s been more than a year that Sony put an end to NX5, To get the nearest SDI output camcorder from Sony, users are forced to adapt the XDCAM series, PXW-X160 ( without GPS featrures ) or PXW-X180. However there are two concerns over this choice, the SXS card is costy, and the cameras are even higher by at least USD 600. The only advantage of the XDCAM camcorders are they are having zoom power more than 20x.
Sony is expanding its NXCAM line of professional HD camcorders with the new HXR-NX5R professional compact camcorder, delivering a range of enhancements over its predecessor models. The new camcorder offers upgraded network functions and a choice of advanced XAVC-S 50Mbps or established AVCHD/DV recording formats to help users meet diverse workflows and client requirements.
The addition of a 3G-SDI terminal supports Full HD 60p output, and the HXR-NX5R features easy-to-use direct functions and a responsive joystick, making it easier to access key camera functions without entering the menu, combined with a wide viewing angle and high contrast OLED viewfinder for image monitoring.
