Super slow motion camera showcase F Innovative rental options for SCRATCH and SCRATCH Lab A SSIMILATE  the leading global provider of DI and dailies tools for digital cinema, episodic television, commercials and spot workflows, have announced that the ASSIMILATE Store now provides on-set professionals and DI artists the option to rent its SCRATCH and SCRATCH Lab software for as little as a day, or as long as three months. These new rental options allow artists to pay for SCRATCH and Lab only when they need it- offering incredible financial flexibility as they face constantly evolving production and post- production landscapes. The ASSIMILATE Store is a unique on-line marketplace to discover, evaluate, and purchase SCRATCH, SCRATCH Lab, third-party software and selected hardware accessories.  SCRATCH Lab drove innovation into the production dailies world because it was the first product that delivered all the power and flexibility of a world-class dailies system at a price on-set professionals could afford, said Steve Bannerman, VP of Marketing at ASSIMILATE. And today were raising the bar yet again. SCRATCH Lab is the first production dailies product to offer true pay-as-you-use rental options that are available online anytime, anywhere. It can’t just be about product speeds and feeds anymore. It has to be about fitting the new way on- set professionals work- making them more productive and helping them make money. www.assimilateinc.com Compact router for newsgathering truck OR-A Company Limited, a leading manufacturer of video and audio systems for the broadcast and professional video industries, displayed the FT-ONE full 4K high resolution variable frame rate camera at Band Pro Film & Digitals annual One World Open House recently. The award-winning FT-ONE has received a lot of attention since its introduction earlier this year at Cine Gear Expo. Harnessing the power of FOR-A’s originally developed, state-of-the-art high- sensitivity CMOS color sensor FT1-CMOS, the FT-ONE records and plays back full 4K film look imagery.  To achieve its full 4K super slow motion capabilities, the FT-ONE has the ability to record up to 900 frames per second. One output channel can provide full 4K (four 1080p HD-SDI) outputs, while the other output channel provides down-converted HD-SDI for live viewing and play back. The FT-ONE captures images as uncompressed raw data on the systems internal memory, which has a recording capacity of 9.4 seconds. This data is then stored on one of two hot-swappable SSD cartridges, each of which is capable of storing 84 seconds of full 4K resolution images. www.for-a.com Utah Scientific, a worldwide leader in routing and master control switchers, have announced that Yemen TODAY, a private broadcaster in Yemen, has purchased a UTAH-100 HD compact router for its satellite newsgathering (SNG) truck.

This enables the vehicles to be used in the MENOS network operated by the Arab States Broadcasting Union (ASBU) on Arabsat satellite capacity. www.utahscientific.com 14 | TV-BAY MAGAZINE TV-BA073JAN13.indd 14 11/01/2013 14:17
