When Ultra Slow Motion Becomes Mainstream  with I-MOVIX INFINITE

When Ultra Slow Motion Becomes Mainstream with I-MOVIX INFINITE

Mons, Belgium23 August, 2016 – At NAB 2016, I-MOVIX has launched the debut version of INFINITE, a radically new innovative ultra-slow motion camera that combines high scalability with trigger-less operation.

Based on Vision Research’s Phantom® Flex4K camera and the I-MOVIX X10 platform, INFINITE is the first to provide continuous on-board loop recording of more than one hour of high frame rate in HD and frame-accurate ramping of speed without compensation and interpolation, and has many distinctive advantages that make this new technology the frontline ultra motion camera.

On the one hand, the trigger-less workflow at the heart of the INFINITE ultra motion technology empowers production teams to review and save ample content for the live show, for post-game analysis and for marketing – all of which dramatically reduces the per-minute cost of this unique technology. 

On the other hand, INFINITE can be operated in a range of modes to meet the most challenging production constraints, both technical and financial. INFINITE helps streamline production logistics when used either in standalone mode without a server, or in conjunction with a server, where it only requires a single channel, saving cost and space in the OB van. INFINITE offers full compatibility with the other technologies used in the production chain, and in particular with the major production servers brands to which the camera might be connected.

Moreover, the system captures more than one hour of continuous action in high speed and in high resolution, allowing an entire sports event to be recorded non-stop. INFINITE’s ability to provide trigger-less coverage means a dedicated operator is not required, the camera workflow is greatly simplified, and the production team never risks missing anything.

INFINITE has the capability to be used for remote/IP operation, and in a wireless setup. The configuration based on the Phantom v642 is now also available.

INFINITE will be shown at IBC 2016 (Booth 12.A37) and is available for immediate delivery.

Based on Vision Research's Phantom Flex 4K camera and the I-MOVIX X10 platform, INFINITE combines extreme scalability with trigger-less operation, and is the first camera to provide continuous on-board loop recording of an hour of high frame rate in HD and frame-accurate ramping of speed without compensation and interpolation. INFINITE helps streamline production logistics when used either in standalone mode without a server, or in conjunction with a server, where it only requires a single channel, saving cost and space in the mobile truck. The trigger-less workflow empowers production teams to review and save ample content for the live show, for post-game analysis and for marketing – all of which dramatically reduces the per-minute cost of this unique technology.

By being in high speed imaging business for well over a decade I have seen the development of these cameras and the change in the ways they are being used in different fields from industrial applications to broadcasting and cinema. The new INFINITE system is combining the best of Phantom high speed cameras and I-MOVIX broadcasting systems. INFINITE will expand the possibilities in sports broadcasting and offers the audience completely new views into the sports. Citius Imaging wants to be in frontline offering this system to those broadcasting companies who want to offer their audience something truly amazing - something they really deserve to see when watching sports", said Mikko Granberg, High Speed Imaging Specialist and Managing Director of Citius Imaging Ltd.

Longines Masters Premieres I-MOVIX’s New INFINITE Ultra Motion System

Longines Masters Premieres I-MOVIX’s New INFINITE Ultra Motion System

One of the world’s most prestigious sports series, the Longines Masters, has premiered INFINITE, the new ultra motion system from I-MOVIX.

EEM, founder and organizer of the Show Jumping events, included INFINITE in its production at the Parisian Leg in December, using it to capture the entire event in a continuous shot at 500fps in 1080p HD – a broadcast first. The ground-breaking INFINITE system was featured again in the coverage of February’s Longines Masters in Hong Kong.

The ability of the system to operate in standalone mode, recording more than one hour’s action on board without requiring a production server, simplified the setup and workflow for the production. By shooting the entire event continuously the production team had every moment of the action available for instant ultra-slow motion replay, and were able to feature beautifully detailed imagery to highlight moments of drama.
