IP PRODUCTION CAMERAS Panavision used the Camerimage International Film Festival in Poland to showcase its Millennium DXL 8k Camera and the T Series anamorphic lenses. Unveiled earlier this year, Millennium DXL makes use of large-format optics and modular accessories from Panavision, an 8k sensor from Red Digital Cinema and colour science and optimised workflow from Light Iron. The camera is expected to be available in early 2017 for rent exclusively through Panavision facilities worldwide. The T Series anamorphic lenses are available in focal lengths of 35mm, 60mm, 100mm, 135mm and 150mm. The line-up will be bolstered with 50mm, 75mm and 180mm versions in the coming months. Also on show was Outpost by Panavision, a mobile post-production system for on-set or near-set workflows. Suitcase TV showcased its Iphrame real-time production system at NAB in New York. The Iphrame can work with a combination of IP, ASI and SDI signals as both inputs and outputs and enables users to make a staggered transition to IP-based production. Suitcase TV vice president of products Ed Calverley said: “Iphrame is another good reason, as if another was needed, for broadcasters to transition to IP, either in whole or in part. It’s easy, inexpensive, and offers the ability to generate more high quality content without the complicated logistics that plague traditional methods.” Iphrame offers the chance to do centralised production during outside broadcasts and other live events by handling video, audio, and graphics with software on standard IT hardware or virtual machines. suitcasetv.com panavision.com EDUCATION The ITTP (Institute for Training in Television Production) have announced their 3rd annual conference will be held at Pinewood Studios on 31st January 2017.
