Camera Corps Qx High Quality Robotic Camera Debuts at 2018 NAB Show

Camera Corps Qx High Quality Robotic Camera Debuts at 2018 NAB Show
Camera Corps will debut a major addition to its range of miniature robotic camera systems at the April 9-12 NAB Show in Las Vegas. The new Qx is a compact weatherproof head with integral pan/tilt/zoom/focus drives. Delivering high video quality, it offers producers the freedom to cut and mix with video feeds from full-size studio and outside-broadcast cameras. Black-finished and just 125 mm in diameter, the Qx is unobtrusive enough to be operated within view of other cameras both for studio productions and in OB coverage of live events. It can also be used as part of a commentator camera setup.
Previewed at NAB New York in October and now available for purchase or rental, the Qx incorporates a high-specification 1/3-inch CMOS Full HD sensor delivering 1080p60, 1080p50, 1080i and 720p. The camera comes complete with an integral 18x zoom lens, automatic exposure, auto white balance, colour correction, edge enhancement, noise reduction and gamma control. Genlock allows easy synchronisation with other equipment. Among new capabilities are 3D noise reduction and shading correction. A shutter with a speed range of 1/4 to 1/8,000 second is incorporated. Imaging sensitivity is F5.6 at 2000 lux and minimum illumination level at F1.6 is 1.5 lux. Enhanced IR capability allows live video capture in zero visible light conditions using infra-red illumination.
The Qx incorporates a fully motorised drive giving smooth on-air control of pan, tilt, zoom and focus. Up to 96 Qx heads can be operated from a single joystick panel. The high precision motor system enables remote operators to match the precise acceleration and deceleration of much larger robotic heads when tracking moving performers on-air. Turning speed is adjustable from 4 seconds to an ultra-slow 90 minutes per 360 degree cycle with no restriction on the number of horizontal rotations.
Fully compatible with all existing Camera Corps control systems, the Qx can be rigged with just a single cable carrying power, control signals, video and audio. Control can be performed live or pre-programmed by the operator. Combining the Qx with Camera Corps' optical fibre transportation devices such as the new SIMPLY SMPTE MAX allows secure operation over distances of up to five miles.
Camera Corps staff on the Vitec Group exhibit (C6025) at the April 2018 NAB Show will include Phil Beckett, Barry Parker, Neil Ashworth and David Sisson.

DPA Captures Sound for Netflix Original Film Posted: 21/10/2021
DPA Captures Sound for Netflix Original Film: Oxyg and egrave;ne

When it came time to record the Netflix original French-language film, Oxygène (Oxygen in English), the audio team had quite the challenge in front of them. The premise of the scientific horror film focuses on a scientist, played by French Actress Melanie Laurent, who has lost her memory, awakens, trapped in a medical pod and must find her way out before the oxygen levels diminish. Given the setting, the pod is used for 90 percent of the film and, with its tight quarters, Production Sound Mixer Ken Yasumoto and Boom Operator Josselin Panchout knew they needed a reliable and unobtrusive microphone solution, which they found in DPA Microphones.
