At IBC2015, both Transvideo and Aaton Digital will present new products incorporating latest technologies for the motion picture and broadcast industries, resulting from a collaboration with many cinematographers, camera and lens manufacturers and sound engineers.
Transvideo will demonstrate a strong line-up of StarliteHD monitors, including the special version StarliteHD5 ARRI to control the ARRI ALEXA Mini and the ARRI AMIRA. These monitors sport a superb practical display, claimed the company, and offer many analytical features, as well as inbuilt recording and playback capabilities.
New for IBC is Starlite RF, a 5inch OLED wireless monitor based on StarliteHD5 core technologies with a wireless receiver built in. For delivery in Q4, 2015, the small and lightweight unit works on the 5.8Ghz ISM band, has an antenna on top, and a Sony consumer battery connection at the back. The wireless video connectivity incorporated is without latency with low loss and no delay, over a range of 61m.
In situations where latency is unacceptable, like sport, Transvideo’s new Rainbow FHD is a new generation high-end monitor with ‘Immediate Display.’ That’s zero latency or image lag, according to the company, so there’s no delay for focus pullers or sports announcers. A screen Luminance of 1000 nits together with glass bonding ensures best quality in daylight, and it will be available in Q4, 2015.
A RainbowFHD+ will appear in Q1, 2016, with advanced functionalities including LensReader and CineMultiTrack functions and also some 3DView tools for stereographers.
Also new is CineMultiTrack, described as ‘a reliable focus-puller’s assistant’. It measures distance on set, consisting of a main display unit and three Tags to be concealed on the actors. Tags are small (51 x 51mm) concealable units which include the measurement system and a rechargeable LiPo battery via USB. CineMultiTrack tracks with an accuracy of about 10cm at 50m for up to three targets, each carrying a Tag. It’s available in Q4, 2015.
Aaton Digital will feature the production model of its new CantarX3 location 24 track digital audio recorder, aimed at professional sound recordists and for motion picture, location and orchestral recording.
Also on show will be new accessories, the Cantarem 2, a USB-connected mixer panel to add 12 more assignable mixer faders and four assignable buttons; the new Modular Bag, and the Sound Mixer Rain Poncho.
The connectivity of these products with latest technologies and cameras, remote wireless connections, and the ability to read and record metadata, image and sound have been on the agenda of the Transvideo and Aaton Digital teams for years, in order to develop high-performance solutions.
Jacques Delacoux, CEO, Transvideo, said, “We have worked hard to establish the position that both companies have achieved in the global marketplace. We are very aware of the strong loyalty of our customers and end-users and we value that greatly. We work constantly to provide them with the best, highest quality tools available to be at the top of their art.”
