Mons, Belgium ― 14 March, 2016
I-MOVIX has launched INFINITE, a radically different new ultra-slow motion camera system that combines extreme scalability with trigger-less operation, and 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.
Based on Vision Research’s Phantom® Flex4K camera and the I-MOVIX X10 platform, INFINITE can be operated in a range of modes to meet the most challenging production constraints, either technical or 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 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.
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.
“Scalability and adaptability are the key benefits with INFINITE,” said Laurent Renard, I-MOVIX CEO. “The ability to operate without a server is a breakthrough with far-reaching consequences for production, and the combination of all the features means that INFINITE is far more adaptable to any production workflow than previous ultra motion solutions.”
INFINITE also has the capability to be used for remote/IP operation, and in wireless configuration. The remote production capability also has potential applications in sports refereeing, allowing the same referee to provide ultra-slow motion adjudication of several sport events at the same time, from a unique location.
INFINITE will be shown at NAB 2016 (Booth C8626) and is available for immediate delivery.
