Floatcam Dolly/Crane wins at NAB! Posted: 24/05/2011
Floatcam Dolly/Crane wins at NAB! The new Dolly/Crane from Floatcam won two awards at NAB for outstanding technical innovation. The awards add to the glowing reviews that the DC has been getting across Europe and the US.
 
The Dolly/Crane is a unique and innovative camera tracking system that utilises a variable sliding counterweight, enabling the camera to be tracked up to 1.6m effortlessly. As it is counterweighted, it can also be used at almost any angle including vertically, enabling shots simply not possible with other
linear sliders. And not only that, you can change the configuration to use it as a jib or mini-crane as well. And all for under £3000!
 
The Dolly/Crane will accommodate cameras up to 10kg, so is ideal for broadcast, ENG and EFP shoots whether you are shooting on an EX1, a RED, a DSLR or a full size HDcam or P2 camera.
 
The Floatcam Dolly/Crane is available in the UK exclusively from Floatcam UK.

Hamlet innovative approach to quality control wins award at NAB2011 Posted: 24/05/2011
ds900 Recognising its innovative new approach to quality control, Hamlet was honoured with a STAR (Superior Technology Award Recipient) Award at NAB2011 for its DS900. The STAR Awards are presented by the editorial staff of TV Technology magazine.
 
The DS900 allows the engineer to monitor multiple simultaneous tests on up to four signals on the same display, a winning combination of enhanced capabilities and highly cost effective price point. It uses a new version of Hamlet’s bespoke digital modular test and measurement platform, designed to deliver more processing power while at the same time reducing the cost of the individual input modules. It can include a built-in test signal generator and space for up to four input modules which can be of mixed formats: analogue and digital, composite and component, standard definition and HD, mono, stereo and surround sound. For each input the user can select up to four test set displays, and the built-in multi-viewer presents for instance all four 3G inputs simultaneously with up to 16 windows on a suitable monitor (DVI or XVGA).

HotCams review of NAB 2011 Posted: 10/05/2011
HotCams review of NAB 2011 HotCams Technical Supervisor Daniel Farmer went to NAB to check on new camera developments, and found that higher resolution camera bodies and external recorders are the way forward.

SONY F65

Sony started by releasing their new cinema camera, the F65.  This camera boasts an 8k sensor that currently records at 4k to the rear mounted SR-R1 solid state HDCAM SR recorder.

As far as the compression goes there were some mixed voices. The camera will output 16 bit RAW but all I specifically got out of their Engineer (who only spoke Japanese) was that the recordings are visually lossless which probably means 4k resolution at 880mb SR compression.
