NEWS CAPTURE & PRODUCE Packaging Exhibiting for the first time at BVE 2016, MSA Foams brings a new dimension in stand design to Excel in February – a stand made entirely from foam! MSA Foams specialise in the design and manufacture of protective packaging solutions, ideal for delicate film equipment that requires safe transportation and protection. The stand (G16) showcases the MSA design team’s creativity with their foam products, demonstrating the product range, design service and manufacturing capabilities to exhibition visitors in a very tactile way. MSA will be demonstrating their portable scanning service which creates a 3D product model for precision foam fitting. It captures complex shapes with accurate measuring and products can be scanned on site if they are too large or sensitive to transport. MSA supplies customised foam inserts and a range of protective cases to suit all requirements and budgets. Custom foam offers optimum equipment protection, essential for fragile, expensive gear. The foam is extremely durable and ensures that the contents are well organised, secured in place and fully protected, making it the ideal choice for film and broadcast equipment. Lenses MTF are now UK distributor for Vedra lenses, a range of mini prime lenses designed for cameras such as Panasonic Lumix, JVC LS300, Blackmagic Studio and Sony FS5/FS7. These lenses are compact, beautifully engineered in aircraft grade aluminium and offer outstanding optical performance with uniform dimensions, 0.8 modulus gears, double focus and aperture scales. Available in focal lengths of 12mm, 16mm, 25mm, 35mm, 50mm, and an 85mm coming soon. Although initially available in Micro 4/3 mount, MTF working in conjunction with Veydra have designed a stainless steel E mount and a Sony FZ mount. At BVE MTF are also pleased to announce that they are now UK distributor for Brightcast lighting, a unique range of flexible LED light panels. These can be powered with either BPU style or V-lock batteries with a mains option available too. Extremely lightweight, water resistant and flexible with velcro backing, these light can literally go anywhere and available as either daylight or Bi-Colour panels, they offer incredible value for money Cameras JVC will be showing its range of 4kCAM and ProHD camcorders at the upcoming BVE and CABSAT events, including the latest firmware update for the GY-LS300 Super 35mm 4k camcorder, which adds a J-Log mode, Cinema 4k/2k recording and a rather clever prime zoom feature. The company’s smaller handheld 4k cameras, the GY-HM170 and GY-HM200, have also just had a free firmware upgrade, adding a 120fps slow motion recording mode for greater creativity. Live streaming is a key feature of many of JVC’s camcorders, including the handheld GY-HM650, the shoulder-mounted GY-HM850 and the GY-HM890 studio camera. In addition, the company’s collaboration with Streamstar means that remote control of JVC camcorder settings and zoom functions/presets is now available from within the Streamstar live production software; unique IP video stream inputs enable JVC streaming camcorders located anywhere in the world to be used in live production. JVC’s studio offerings have also increased thanks to its collaboration with Bradley. The JVC GY-HM890 will be featured in its full studio configuration, along with a number of Bradley products, including the fully-integrated HDC-160 PTZ camera, the U4_J remote head for the GY-HM600/650 camcorders and the Z-Head remote head for the GY-HM170/200 camcorders. JVC will also be demonstrating Bradley’s Multi-Function Controller and Remote Camera Panel Mk3, along with the RD_11 multi-channel radio data transceiver and RD_12 miniature wireless CCU controller. JVC has also launched the DT-N Series of studio monitors, offering professional connectivity and features.
