Vitec Group Highlights
For New York
A

t this year's NAB Show New
York, the Vitec Group will show
highlights from its extensive range
of premium-branded products and
services.
Visitors to the booth will see Gemini,
the new 2x1 softlight from Litepanels;
the
award-winning
Intelligent
Prompting from Autoscript; the μVRC
robotic head controller from Vinten;
and
the
award-winning
flowtech 75 tripod, a
joint venture between
Sachtler and Vinten.
Vitec
Group's
Litepanels
brand
will
showcase
Gemini, an accurate
and agile softlight.
First introduced at
IBC2017, Gemini is an
all-new, 2x1 RGB-WW soft
panel that combines daylight,
Astra 3X and 6X LED lights

tungsten, and red-green-blue LEDs
with flexible, precise colour adjustment
for full-spectrum white light that's the
most accurate in the industry. Adding
daylight and tungsten means lighting
professionals can reliably achieve
exceptional colour and realistic skin
tones - eliminating the need for colour
correction and saving postproduction
t i m e and money.
Litepanels'
nextgeneration Astra 3X and 6X
LED lights will also be on
display. Building on the
quality and popularity
of the innovative
Astra 1x1 panel, the
next-generation
panels now feature
a 50% increase in
output, with reduced
power consumption
for longer battery run
time. This means the new Astra
6X is six times brighter than the

original 1x1 version,
while the Astra 3X is
three times brighter. Litepanels will
also showcase its daylight-balanced
Sola 4+ and Sola 6+ Fresnel lights.
The Sachtler Vinten flowtech 75
is a revolutionary new tripod that
simplifies and accelerates camera
operators' workflows with instant and
easy setup, versatile height range, and
exceptional torsional stiffness. It is
compatible with all major 75mm fluid
heads, flowtech 75 tripods offer a set
of two-stage, carbon-fibre legs with
an easy-to-remove midlevel spreader,
rubber feet, and a payload capacity
of 20 kilograms (44 pounds).
Unique quick-release brakes at
the top of the tripod make it
possible to deploy all legs
simultaneously and adjust
them to the ground surface.
Autoscript's
Intelligent
Prompting will also be on display
in New York. Intelligent Prompting

is the broadcast industry's first
completely
IPenabled,
end-toend teleprompting
solution.
On display at the
2017 NAB Show
New York will be
Vinten's
Hexagon
Tracks.
Powered
by Tecnopoint, the original
manufacturer of dolly systems,
Hexagon Tracks is an advanced
robotic camera dolly and track
system that can be assembled
quickly and easily with no cables
outside of the track.
The μVRC is the perfect
companion to the Vantage, giving
the camera head even greater
versatility and flexibility for
enterprise video capture. The
μVRC controller allows studios
and venues of
any size to
control highend robotics
and
thirdparty PTZs.

Shulkind To Present
Keynote At SMPTE 2017
T

echnologist,
Director
of
Photography, and award-winning
Cinematographer, Andrew Shulkind
will present the keynote at the SMPTE
2017 Annual Technical Conference &
Exhibition (SMPTE 2017), which will
take place October 23 to 26 at the
Hollywood & Highland Center in Los
Angeles.
A co-founder of HeadcaseVR and
sought-after expert on virtual reality,
augmented reality, and mixed reality
(VR, AR, and MR) content capture
and creation, Shulkind will share
his experiences in developing and
using the latest immersive media
technologies and techniques in his
keynote, The Immersive Future:
Broaden Your Horizons.
"Long known for his artistry with
visual effects and lighting, Andrew has
more recently turned his natural ease
with innovative technologies toward
the field of VR, AR, and mixed reality,"
said Richard Welsh, SMPTE Education

Vice President and CEO of Sundog
Media Toolkit.
"His keynote address will bring a
fresh perspective to SMPTE 2017 on
the state of immersive technology and
its application in creating uniquely
engaging content."
Shulkind's keynote will provide
attendees with perspective on the
impending media disruption, which
promises exponential growth in
everything from field-of-view to
storage requirements, compression
demands to distribution networks.
The takeaway for attendees will be
a clearer sense of what immersive
content is, and what we can gain from
shaping its successful implementation.
"Capturing and delivering content
in 360 degrees is expanding the
window that has framed our previous
entertainment
experiences.
This
ultimate field of view is the next
natural step in a progression of
immersive storytelling that is meant

to maximise viewer engagement,"
said Shulkind. "The challenges and
advantages of capturing immersive
elements are evolving for this kind of
experiential delivery, and how the art
form of traditional content coexists
and overlaps with interactivity,
artificial intelligence, and gamification
of entertainment. We now have the
opportunity and responsibility to
sustain the quality of narrative legacy
and premium human craft of the best
television, advertising, and movies of
our past in the interactive, data-driven
future."
Prior to co-founding HeadcaseVR in
2014, Shulkind worked in feature films
and broadcast advertising for clients
such as Paramount, DreamWorks,
Sony Pictures, Apple, Adidas, AT&T,
Budweiser, Google, Old Spice, and
Samsung.
He received the International
Cinematographer's
Guild
(ICG)
Emerging Cinematographer Award

SMPTE Keynote:
Andrew Shulkind

in 2013, Studio Daily Prime Award in
2014, and Studio Daily Top 50 Award
for Creativity and Innovation in 2016.
With his move into VR, Shulkind
leveraged his experience working
with 3D images, miniatures, and
visual effects (VFX) to design a 32K
RAW, 360-degree VR camera rig that
today remains the industry's highestresolution
professional-grade
VR
acquisition device.
The keynote will be among dozens of
presentations offered by subject matter
experts over the course of SMPTE 2017
at the Hollywood & Highland Center.
