FOR-A FT-ONE-SS4K Ultra High-Speed Cameras Capture and nbsp;4K Footage at 1,000 fps for Live Production

As audience appetites for sports coverage continue to increase, FOR-A Corporation of America offers a range of FT-ONE variable frame rate cameras to deliver the action in super slow motion. Recent advances now allow playback of 4K video at up to 1,000 frames per second to provide incredible detail for live broadcast applications.

“Sports continue to be a driving factor in the need for high frame rate cameras, and nobody delivers instant replays like FOR-A,” explained Ken Truong, President of FOR-A Corporation of America. “Our FT-ONE special purpose cameras are designed for super-slo-mo 4K acquisition of sports and other live event footage, and can be combined with other FOR-A tools to deliver unprecedented replay flexibility.”

For example, several FT-ONE-SS4K cameras were used for critical ultra-slo-mo replays during the live broadcast of the 2019 Champions League final in Madrid, as well as other high-profile live sports event across the world. The exceptional feature of the FT-ONE-SS4K is “brightness.” When equipped with a B4 bayonet lens, the camera shoots footage up to four times brighter than models with a PL lens. Plus, the FT-ONE-SS4K shoots up to 1,000 fps in 4K, offers simultaneous record and playback with internal memory, and features independent real-time 4K or HD output. Other features include 24-axis color correction and compatibility with Canon’s OLED viewfinder.

BEHIND THE SCENES OF A SUPER SLO-MO VIDEO SHOOT Posted: 20/12/2010
BEHIND THE SCENES OF A SUPER SLO-MO VIDEO SHOOT Ever wonder how those astounding slo-mo shots that make a broadcast or big-screen production jump off the screen are created? “That’s the million dollar question,” says Joel Holland, founder and CEO of Footage Firm. “The short answer is a lot of time, money, and expertise, matched with a bit of luck and plenty of fun.”

“Well, without geeking out too much, basically, you need to have a special camera, lights, and extensive staging setups,” Luke Miller, independent Director of Photography, elaborates. “For this particular collection we used Vision Research’s Phantom HD Gold camera; this allowed us to shoot 1920x1080 sized-frames at rates up to 1052 per second (fps), which gave us a lotof visual information.”
