CineMultiTrack is a new distance measurement system that can measure multiple objects, in association with Transvideo’s existing LensReader. The system can measure simultaneously the position of several tags and provides the data to the focus puller on the scale of the lens reader. The system can also deliver the information to Preston FI+Z lens controls to help focus in difficult conditions.
Also new is the VirtualHorizon3, which is claimed to be ‘the first wireless digital leveller with motion compensation and shock filtering’ – for remote heads. It is essentially a remote electronic ‘bubble level’ with a Bluetooth link, and works with Transvideo’s CineMonitorHD family. It could be used attached to the post of a user’s body rig, the top of a Steadicam, or on top of a remote camera. Horizon and level are displayed on the CineMonitorHD. Power comes from an internal battery, and there’s also a small connector for external power.
There are also enhancements for the CineMonitorHD multi-format field monitor, including a new release of LensReader, which displays graphic data (focus with depth of field and hyperfocal point, iris, zoom) in realtime from intelligent lenses – Arri/Zeiss LDS Master Prime, Ultra Prime and Master Anamorphic, Arri/Fujinon Alura Lightweight zooms, Angenieux /i zooms, Cooke and Fujinon Cabrio lenses.
