FOR-A, a leading manufacturer of video and audio systems for the broadcast and professional video industries, was awarded a Government Video Salute for its new VFC-7000 HD Variable Frame Rate (Super Slow Motion) Camera by Government Video magazine at the Government Video Expo in Washington, D.C. The camera offers high-speed playout and recording in full frame HD (720/59.94p or 720/50p) at up to 700 fps, with variable recording speed from 125 fps to 700 fps.
The VFC-7000 was designed to make it easy for anyone to capture high-speed action in uncompressed HD, said Hiro Tanoue, president, FOR-A Corporation of America. Super slow motion is an essential element of many educational, scientific, and creative video projects for government agencies. We are extremely proud to have been recognized by Government Video for our camera.
With its high-sensitivity CMOS color sensor, the VFC-7000 features an electronic high-speed shutter that can operate as fast as 1/200,000 second for filming fast moving events and subjects without blur. The lightweight camera comes complete with camera head, main body, F lens mount, recording component, and carrying handle in one integrated package.
Unlike competitive products, the VFC-7000 comes standard with a touch panel operation unit, controlling play, record, and all camera functions.
Included internal memory can record up to 9 seconds of HD recording. Plus, the VFC-7000 includes two channels of HD-SDI output, which provides a live video output while simultaneously outputting recorded video stored in the camera in parallel.
