As part of the continuing quest to create the most flexible and complete 3D Camera System for the professional market, Meduza Systems, the London based developer of the TITAN 3D professional camera system, gave a sneak preview of their NAB surprises at the 3D Creative Summit in London. The two most significant new additions to the modular camera system are the new Mirror Module and the Mobile Multi Camera System.
The Mirror Module is a simple but robust clip on light weight attachment for the TITAN which creates the ability for the camera to deliver the complete range of interaxial control between 0mm and 110mm. The design created by Al Mayer, Meduza’s Chief Engineer, includes an additional single optic that works with either the left or right optic in the side by side set up. The complete switch from side by side to Mirror Module takes only a few minutes.
“Since the outset we have always intended that the Meduza would be much more that a camera, that it should be a complete modular system that will provide the flexibility to film quality profession S3D in any and all environments. The Mirror Module is the next big step to being a solution for every shooting situation,” says Chris Cary, CEO of Meduza Systems. All of the functions remain fully motorised and have wireless control.
The Mobile Multi Camera System has been designed to replace the necessity for using a complete 3D mobile truck when a smaller system would be more than adequate.
“At the moment the major field sports are receiving plenty of coverage because they have the audience and the budgets,” says Cary, “what our system is designed to do is to make 3D accessible to other sports like boxing and snooker where camera space and budgets need to be more flexible.”
The multi Camera System is modular so can use two or more cameras. All of the controls and data run to and from the camera through an onboard control box and then via fibre back to our own flight case interface. The interface is designed to work with different existing controllers like Grass Valley, where existing 2D controls are reassigned to 3D functions.
Meduza will also be showing the TITAN mounted inside the MK-V Nexus Revolution system providing the highest level of stabilization and all fully remote controlled.
