Mons, Belgium ― 9 March, 2015 ― I-MOVIX is launching the X10 UHD RF Ultra Motion system at NAB 2015 (booth C8525), completing the X10 range of class-leading ultra motion systems.
X10 UHD RF extends the operational flexibility of the X10 technology by supporting wireless shooting in HD productions where being close to the action is important. For very high-frame rate ultra-slow motion in HD sports coverage, X10 UHD RF operates in USM (Ultra Slow Motion) mode to deliver instant replays of up to 3,000 FPS in 720p or up to 2,000 FPS in 1080i.
The system is available with a choice of wireless cameraback solutions, including Vislink’s Clip-On 4 or L1700. Control can be from the OB (mobile) truck using the OCP and JOG remotes, or when a data channel is unavailable the camera operator can control the system in standalone mode to send replays to the truck over a single wireless link.
“Vislink wireless camera solutions provide the ultimate flexibility for capturing live sporting events worldwide, including the World Cup, Olympics and the Super Bowl,” commented Ashley Dove, VP of Solutions at Vislink. “The untethered nature of cameraback RF transmission allows broadcasters to collect unique angles from the field and deliver them to the fans at home, for a more complete live event experience. The L1700 is lightweight, compact, and transmits in high-quality HD, making it the perfect compliment to the I-MOVIX range of products.”
“With its wireless capability the X10 UHD RF is clearly the most advanced ultra slow motion camera for HD sports broadcasting,” said Laurent Renard, CEO of I-MOVIX. “The ability to take the camera close to the action and into any corner of the arena gives production teams a new freedom to uncover detail and sporting drama that has never been seen before.”
X10 UHD RF is the latest version of the X10 product line and combines the unique advanced features of the X10 technology with the ultra HD image resolution and the RF transmission capability. X10 UHD RF integrates the Vision Research’s Flex 4K high-speed camera, and is fully integrated with industry-leading production servers.
