Latest version of FOR-A's 4K variable frame rate camera to premiere at NAB
[permalink] 24.03.2015

FOR-A FT-ONE-S VFR 4K camera photo During the NAB 2015 Show next month, one highlight of FOR-A's booth (C5117) will be the newest version of its 4K variable frame rate camera, the FT-ONE-S. Allowing for greater mobility, the camera is smaller and lighter than previous versions of the camera. The FT-ONE-S made its world debut at last November's Inter BEE Show in Japan, and will be shown for the first time in America at NAB, which runs April 13-16 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The FT-ONE-S allows users to separate the camera head from the body, enabling unprecedented shooting positions and angles for sports production and other live events. The camera links operators optically and via an intercom system, so that users can shoot from the field with up to one km distance between the unit and base station. Featuring a Super 35mm sensor and enhanced resistance to dust and water, the new model also includes the ability to color correct video output live using its 12-axis system, which is particularly useful for on-site color-matching between scenes, or when ensuring color consistency with video shot from other cameras. Previous versions of the camera - the original award-winning FT-ONE, as well as the FT-ONE-OPT, which also features optical cable to allow shooting in the field with ease - will also be on display in FOR-A's booth at the NAB Show. Both versions feature the ability to record 4K video at up to 900 fps. [source]

Free iZotope Ozone 6.1 update
[permalink] 23.03.2015

iZotope Ozone 6.1video With the free Ozone 6.1 update, iZotope is including powerful processing features and bringing back a popular feature from Ozone 5. New Ozone 6.1 features include Tube Limiting and Adaptive Release modes. Users can add an analog-type sound with the Maximizer's new Tube Limiting mode, which combines the warmth of final stage limiting with the ease and precision of digital maximizing. The resulting audio has a tube warmth while remaining competitively loud and appropriate for modern mastering. With a new algorithm inspired by tube hardware limiters like the Fairchild 670, the Tube Limiter adds a vintage sonic character to Ozone's maximizing algorithm. Adaptive Release helps users produce louder, clearer, and fuller masters. This mode for Ozone's Dynamics module intelligently automates the difficult task of finding the right release times. Based on customer feedback, iZotope has also brought back Module Presets, a highly requested feature from customers who owned previous versions of Ozone. Module Presets help users to experiment with different module settings. Users can more easily load and save settings for individual modules without affecting the settings of other modules. Other additions and enhancements to Ozone 6.1 include selectable segmentation loops, automatic track numbers on export, and sound quality improvements. The Ozone 6.1 update is free for existing Ozone 6 customers. For those who don't yet own Ozone, Ozone 6, Ozone 6 Advanced, and upgrades are on sale through April 9. [source]

ARRI announces new ALEXA SXT cameras, Master Anamorphic Flare Sets
[permalink] 23.03.2015

ARRI ALEXA camera film HD 2K 4KARRI's new ALEXA SXT (Super Xtended Technology) cameras represent the next step in the continuing evolution of the ALEXA family. Retaining the rock-solid foundation on which ALEXA is built, ALEXA SXT cameras additionally offer ProRes 4K recording, improved image quality, powerful color management and three fully independent HD-SDI outputs. With in-camera recording of ProRes 4K UHD (3840 x 2160 pixels) and ProRes 4K Cine (4096 x 2637 pixels), ALEXA SXT cameras are the ideal choice for productions that need 4K UHD TV or 4K DCI cinema deliverables, so filmmakers can continue using the ARRI ALEXA platform they know and love. ALEXA SXT cameras keep the acclaimed 3.4K ALEV III sensor of previous ALEXAs and add the state-of-the-art electronics of ARRI's ALEXA 65 camera. These high-performance electronics combine the latest generation of FPGA processors with a lightning-fast internal backplane and form the basis of a completely overhauled image processing chain, advanced pixel correction and optional noise reduction. This results in a further improvement in overall image quality. Like their XT predecessors, ALEXA SXT cameras retain the unique and popular Open Gate, 4:3 and 16:9 sensor modes, which can be recorded in ARRIRAW or ProRes. The first ALEXA SXT cameras are planned for release around mid-2015; the full range will comprise ALEXA SXT EV, SXT Plus and SXT Studio models, replacing current ALEXA XT cameras (the ALEXA Classic EV model will remain in the line-up). ALEXA XT cameras (except ALEXA XT M cameras) shipped between 1st Jan. 2015 and the first shipment of SXT cameras will be eligible for a full SXT upgrade, free of charge. ARRI also announced Master Anamorphic Flare Sets, highly versatile and economical accessories for the ARRI/ZEISS Master Anamorphic lens series. [source]
