Stand C4644, NAB 2012
At the 2012 NAB Show, I-MOVIX will launch X10, the industry’s first continuously streaming ultra-slow motion system. Pioneering a new kind of “always-on” live ultra-slow motion, the X10 delivers groundbreaking 300 frames-per-second real-time continuous streaming in 1080i (600 FPS at 720p), with the familiarity and flexibility of a traditional broadcast camera.
Designed to be used in conjunction with the EVS XT3 live production server, the X10 greatly outstrips the performance of existing continuous slow-motion systems, which are restricted to three times slower than real time, or 75 FPS. Setting a new standard for performance and versatility in a variety of live broadcasting situations, the X10 gives producers access to continuous extreme slow motion with images of extraordinary quality.
“Over the past few years, ultra motion shots have raised sports coverage to a higher level of quality, and provided some of the most breathtaking moments for the audience,” said I-MOVIX CEO Laurent Renard. “Now, having continuous streaming means that a producer need never miss any of the action — everything can be replayed in extreme slow motion. This extends the potential for creativity, and it increases the value of the content produced at an event where the X10 system is used.”
Capable of up to 18 hours of continuous ultra motion on the EVS XT3 live production server, the X10 system is a fully broadcast-integrated solution and includes the latest high-speed lightweight portable HD camera, a camera control unit, and an operational control panel. The X10 is used with the industry-standard EVS XT3 production server and LSM remote control. The camera connects to the camera control unit (CCU) via a SMPTE hybrid fiber cable, enabling long-distance optical fiber transmission and control through a single connection.
In keeping with the I-MOVIX philosophy of making extreme slow motion systems that are ready to use by any broadcast production team, the X10 is supplied as a turnkey solution that requires little or no training, with all the principle controls and workflow being familiar to experienced crews. The system is readily integrated with mobile trucks, fully compatible with the typical mobile setup, and capable of use in 3D production.
I-MOVIX X10 will be available at the 2012 NAB Show, booth C4644.
