NEWS CAPTURE & PRODUCE Recording monitors Video Devices has announced a firmware update for its PIX-E Series of 4k-compatible recording monitors that includes a anamorphic de-squeeze feature set, an LCD Orientation menu that allows for far greater positioning flexibility, and enhanced false colour capabilities. At the same time, 6G-SDI has been expanded to include support for 4k over a single SDI cable for ARRI AMIRA cameras. Previous firmware introduced this feature for Blackmagic URSA cameras. The ability to send timecode over SDI out has also been added. The version 1.30 update is applicable to the entire PIX-E Series, including the PIX-E7, PIX-E5, and PIX-E5H. videodevices.com Slo-mo I-MOVIX will demonstrate a ‘scalable’ ultra-slow motion system at NAB that it promises will be adaptable to any workflow and production requirement. Based on Vision Research’s Phantom Flex4k camera and the I-MOVIX X10 platform, Infinite can be operated in a range of modes. The debut version, capable of recording over an hour of continuous non-stop ultra motion in HD without a server, will be shown in Las Vegas. Also on show will be the X10 UHD RF. This system can be used in wireless mode for very high-frame rate ultra slow motion in HD sports productions, enabling live and replay operation with standard RF equipment. It is available with a choice of wireless camera- backs, including Vislink’s Clip-On 4 or the L1700. i-movix.com Camera support Tiffen International used BVE to show off its Steadicam Pilot 2 and Steadimate gimbal adapter products. The Pilot 2 is a Steadicam camera stabiliser that can be purchased as the sled alone, or with two Arm and Vest options for varying classes of camera weight. With the SOLO Arm and Vest option it has a payload capacity of 4.5kg, or with the Zephyr Arm and Vest option it has a payload capacity of 8.5kg. It is offered with or without a 1000 nit HD Monitor and comes with a D-Tap power port on the stage for camera and accessory power. Also on show was the Steadimate arm and vest adapter for use with gimbals such as the DJI Ronin. This takes the load off the operators’ arms allowing for longer operation time. tiffen.com 12 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 111 MARCH 2016 TV-BAY111MARCH_Book.indb 12 11/03/2016 17:16
