Mons, Belgium ― 26 March, 2014 ― I-MOVIX has announced the debut at NAB of X10 UHD, the industry’s first 4K ultra-slow motion system to support both continuous super slow motion (SSM) and ultra slow motion (USM) at frame rates of up to 1000fps.
Combining the core X10 ultra-motion technology with Vision Research’s Phantom® Flex4K camera, X10 UHD supports operation in a range of modes to meet differing production requirements, and can be instantly re-configured for new 4K or HD shooting scenarios.
For very high-frame rate ultra-slow motion in 4K sports coverage, the system operates in USM mode to deliver instant replays of up to 1,000fps. For continuous non-stop recording, SSM mode delivers up to 120fps at 4Kp60. When operating in HD resolutions (1080p or 1080i) X10 UHD offers up to 600fps in continuous SSM mode, and up to 2,000fps in USM mode. The system can also complement these specialized applications by performing in a conventional live camera role.
X10 UHD’s frames-per-second performance and operational flexibility in a variety of production situations far outstrips the capabilities of other systems on the market today.
“Versatility, quality and performance are equally important for a leading-edge 4K ultra-motion system,” said Laurent Renard, CEO of I-MOVIX. “Thanks to the very fruitful relationship we have with Vision Research, we are able to offer broadcasters a system that outstrips the competition in every respect, with better ROI because of the many different ways in which it can be used.”
X10 UHD delivers all the usability and image quality benefits for which I-MOVIX systems have become renowned. Fully integrated for live broadcast production and easy to operate by any broadcast camera crew, X10 UHD is compatible with Grass Valley sleds, easily portable, and can be specified in an RF version. Optimized for quick setup and efficient operation in exacting production situations, X10 UHD is the most advanced solution with 4K and HD SSM capabilities available for multi-role shooting.
