It's A Wrap - BSC Expo 2016 Report

cont'd...

GSS Systems' B520 gyro-stabilised gimbal system
Ovide Smart Assist 4 recorder

Cinezone allows production staff
to identify potential camera and
lighting setup issues that could result
in incorrectly exposed images. It uses
colour coding to indicate the position
and area of any signals likely to cause
concern, an easier process than trying
to gauge exposure purely from the
camera viewfinder or an attached
monitor. Cinelite allows on-screen
measurement of video levels in RGB
percentage, Y percentage and F-stop
readings.
Lee Filters showed a new range
of Zircon lighting filters specifically
designed for LED fittings. These are
available in a various strengths for
warming the look of an LED, removing
the green cast often associated with
LEDs and for soft-diffusions.
Miller Fluid Heads demonstrated
its Compass 23 fluid head and
Cineline 2090 camera support tripod. The Compass 23 is intended for
use with medium size large-sensor
cameras. It has three selectable drag
settings plus a zero position and four
counterbalance positions for payloads
between approximately 4kg and 14kg.
It also has a 120mm sliding camera
plate with 60mm travel for balancing.
The new fluid head comes with an

PAG PL16+
Gold Mount Charger

illuminated bubble level, pan/tilt locks
using disc brakes, and a replaceable
tilt end rosette. The Cineline 2090
range includes an HD Mitchell Base
alloy tripod and HD alloy ground
spreader for use with the Cineline 70
fluid head.
Mo-Sys Engineering promoted its
range of robotic camera mounting
heads for film and broadcast. These
include the dual-axis Mo-Sys L40 for
high-end cinematography, the tripleaxis gyro stabilised Mo-Sys G50 head
for telescopic cranes and the dual-axis
Mo-Sys B20 compact head.
Ncam demonstrated a camera
tracking system designed for virtual
and augmented graphics. Ncam
Live uses a stereo pair of cameras
to reconstruct the studio in three
dimensional space, combined with
multiple non-optical sensors to track
and predict motion. Because the
technology uses natural tracking
points from the environment, the
system requires no calibration and can
be ready for use very quickly.
Ovide showed its Smart Assist 4
recorder. Up to eight recorders can
be combined to capture content from
32 HD cameras. Using quad splits,
this can be extended to 128
cameras. Smart Assist 4 has
12 routed SDI outputs so the
operator can select between
12 independent video feeds
including multiviewers.
PAG promoted a new fourposition PL16+ simultaneous
charger which reduces the number
of chargers required to manage a
large PAGlink Gold Mount battery
inventory. Four PAGlink 94 Wh Li-Ion
batteries can be fully charged in less

than six hours, eight in less than 12
hours, and 16 in less than 24 hours.
It is possible to charge a maximum
of 32 batteries, eight linked on each
position, without user intervention.
Red exhibited its Scarlet-W camera
which can capture 5K 2.4:1 at up to
60fps or 5K full frame at 50fps. The
camera has 13.8 megapixel resolution
and features enhancements including
simultaneous Redcode RAW and Apple
ProRes recording.
Sony demonstrated its F55 digital
cine camera with new Version 7
software. In addition to the existing
colour spaces, Sony is implementing
the ITU-R BT. 2020 (Rec. 2020)
standard, the native colour space
of new generation 3840 x 2160
UHD. Sony is also implementing
simultaneous recording of MPEG2 50
megabit per second 4:2:2 and 10 bit
4:2:2 4K XAVC, in either 3840 x 2160
or 4096 x 2160 pixel resolution, to the
same SxS Pro+ card.
Tiffen demonstrated the M-1
Steadicam body worn camera rig,
the M standing for modular. Features
include centre drives for rigidity
plus optional vernier fingertip tilt
adjustment. The matching G-70x
Elastic Arm has a 30kg lifting capacity
and 73cm boom range.
Videosys showed its wireless camera
control system which enables control
of up to four cameras per channel.
The transmitter operates in the 403-

474 MHz UHF band. The camera unit
has the same form factor as Cobham's
H.264 transmitter. Using a separate
unit gives greater mounting flexibility
than systems where the camera
control receiver is integrated into the
video transmitter.
XD motion demonstrated aerial
camera stabilisers from GSS Systems.
Among these is the GSS C520 fiveaxis gyro-stabilised platform which
has a 20-inch diameter gimbal. The
platform was developed to integrate
the full-size and modular digital
cinema cameras with any long or short
lens option available on the market.
Cameras and lenses can be swapped
out in less than 30 minutes. Model
B520 was developed for broadcast
applications. A modified Sony HDC2500L camera fits within the B520,
eliminating the need for an HKC-T1500
adapter.
Last but not alphabetical, Panastore
promoted its ability to provide what
might loosely be termed 'everything
else': adhesive tape, transit cases,
clothing, light and colour meters, tools,
torches and, slightly more expensive,
GoPro cameras.
The dates for BSC 2017 will be
publicised in InBroadcast as soon as
announced.
Given the widely favourable reaction
to the new venue, my guess is that the
event will become firmly established
under its new wraps.
