Leyard & Planar 8K video wall signal. The Quad SDI connections even allow inputs from cameras with 1.5, 3, 6 or 12G SDI outputs without the need for a converter. If I have done my sums correctly it will be available in the third quarter of 2016 for £1665 (not including VAT). Size isn’t everything, so they tell me, but when it comes to video walls, you could not help but be impressed by the scale of the display on the Leyard and Planar booth. It had an enormous TW Series LED video wall measuring more than 31 feet wide by 18 feet tall (9.5 meters by 5.5 meters) that consisted of 64 TWA1.2 LED displays with a 1.2 millimetre pixel pitch. Together it provided a 7680 x 4320 resolution image. Yes, that’s 8k people. And you thought 4k was the next big thing! Shame on you. If you stand in the correct place – roughly 9 to 12 feet from the video wall - the pixels are undetectable. I can vouch for that. SHOTOVER U1 As you might expect, with the worldwide market for camera drones anticipated to reach $21.5 billion by 2022, there were some significant UAV debuts at NAB. Atomos Shogun Inferno Atomos are a cool company that makes cool kit. Their big NAB launch was another all-in-one monitor-recorder: the 10-bit, HDR-capable Shogun Inferno. With 1500nit of brightness in the monitor, and the ability to record 4Kp60 over Quad-SDI, it is an essential tool that allows shooters to see on screen exactly what they are shooting and then record, play back and edit (within reason). It has 10 stops of dynamic range with AtomHDR and records to ProRes and DNxHR from either a video or Raw ‘So I can now buy Storage Solutions from Screen?’ DJI launched a six-rotor drone that can carry a Red Epic camera for up to 16 minutes while New Zealand-based Shotover displayed the U1, a device that it describes as “the world’s first professional grade UAV for the broadcast, motion picture, surveillance and industrial survey markets.” It has redundant flight control and battery systems, a customised downlink with two HD video feeds and, from the demo I saw, remarkable stability even at full zoom. Uniquely, the boom beneath the drone is S-shaped, not straight. This allows the camera to shoot up as well as down. The U1 is the brainchild of the late Alan Purwin, a helicopter pilot and aerial filming specialist, who died in a helicopter crash in 2015. Through this invention, his legacy lives on.
