Schneider Optics earns 2012 Technical Emmy Award

Schneider Optics will receive a Technology and Engineering Emmy Award for its IRND (Infrared Neutral Density) filter technology, from The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) on 10 January, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. “In keeping with our ongoing goal of providing cinematographers with the imaging tools they need, our engineering team crafted a solution by designing the Platinum Series IRND filters. These provide the proper balance of light striking the camera’s CCD or CMOS imager throughout the spectrum,” said Dwight Lindsey, CEO of Schneider Optics. Platinum Series IRND filters are free of off-axis colour shift regardless of the focal length and can be stacked without introducing reflections. They can also be used as a standard ND filter with all HD video and film cameras. Schneider offers these filters in all standard video and cine sizes, including: 4×4, 4×5.65, 5×5, 5.65×5.65, 6.6×6.6 sizes plus rounds in 138mm, 4.5-inch and Series 9. Platinum Series IRND filters are available in 0.3, 0.6, 0.9, 1.2, 1.5, 1.8, and 2.1
