Sonnet will showcase new Thunderbolt(TM) 3 editions of its Echo(TM) Express SEL and Echo Express SE I Thunderbolt-to-PCI Express(R) (PCIe(R)) expansion systems. The compact and lightweight SEL and SE I chassis harness Thunderbolt 3 to enable data transfers up to 2,750 MB/s for both Mac(R) and Windows(R) computers, supporting a wide variety of high-performance PCIe cards. Differing only in size, the single-slot SEL and SE I systems are ideal for use in situations in which users only need to connect a single PCIe card. With the new interface, both systems enable users of computers equipped with 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports, such as the new MacBook Pro(R) and iMac(R) to take advantage of Thunderbolt 3's 2,750 MB/s of PCIe bandwidth to support the most demanding, highest-performance adapter cards.

Hayslett Takes Sachtler Ace M on Tour with MUSE Posted: 15/11/2013
Hayslett Takes Sachtler Ace M on Tour with MUSE
For alternative rock band MUSEs 2nd Law World Tour, cinematographer Matt Hayslett needed to choose his equipment carefully in order to keep up with fast-paced life on the road. The Grammy-winning group, which has played for packed houses in its native England and throughout Europe, is currently touring North America. Some of MUSEs most recent hits include Survival, the theme song for the London Summer Games, and Madness, the theme song for TBS/TNTs March Madness, for which the group broke the record for Billboards longest #1 alternative airplay song. For its latest endeavor, MUSE selected Hayslett to film a documentary about life on tour. The band really wanted to invite fans behind the scenes for the first time, at the height of their career, Hayslett explains. Since Id shot the trailer and video material for their album release, with the blessing of Warner Bros. Records, they brought me in to do just that. For the world tour, I needed a tripod that could support a wide range of camera rigs and be able to keep up with our busy schedule. The Sachtler Ace M fluid head and tripod fit the bill, he says. Sachtler is part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company. In addition to capturing the behind-the-scenes footage, Hayslett shot the live visuals that the audience watches at the show. There is nothing like seeing your videos on the big screen with an amazing performance and incredible lighting, he comments.

Timeless on the Mediterranean with the Sachtler Video 15 Posted: 12/09/2013
Timeless on the Mediterranean with the Sachtler Video 15
When time begins to pass more slowly and the viewer is immersed in the sounds of the sea and the visually overwhelming images of the endless ocean, filmmaker Hans Leysieffer translates his motto into action: The world slows down, and it is time to watch. Slow motion and time lapse are his preferred stylistic devices to capture the fascination of the Mediterranean. In the nature documentary Mediterranean Magical Moments, it's not just about the beauty of the image for Leysieffer: To meet his expectations of visualizing the eternity of the ocean, he relies on the extremely robust and durable Video 15 fluid head by Sachtler, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.

Papert Chooses OConnor for the Sketch Comedy Key and Peele

Comedy Centrals sketch comedy Key and Peele might be shot with a limited crew, camera and gear package, on a mandated short shooting schedule, but that doesnt bother cinematographer Charles Papert. Achieving a high-end look simply requires a lot of creative corner-cutting and strong support, he says. So he uses his favorite heads from OConnor, part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.
