I-MOVIX has extended the performance of its X10 UHD, dubbed as the industry’s first 4K ultra-slow motion system to support both continuous super slow motion (SSM) and ultra slow motion (USM) at frame rates of up to 1,000fps.
Combining the core X10 ultra-motion technology with Vision Research’s Phantom Flex4K camera, X10 UHD supports operation in a range of modes to meet differing production requirements, and can be instantly re-configured for new 4K or HD shooting scenarios.
The X10 UHD now has an increased dynamic range, further boosting the versatility of the camera in widely differing lighting conditions, and increasing its performance when lighting is poor. Featuring the best image sensor available in the market, and with reduced noise levels to provide even sharper images, the X10 UHD now supports higher frame rates in SSM mode (continuous mode), further extending the performance advantage over other slow motion cameras.
For very high-frame rate ultra-slow motion in 4K sports coverage, the system operates in USM mode to deliver instant replays of up to 1,000fps, while preserving a continuous live feed. For continuous non-stop recording, SSM mode delivers up to 120fps at 4Kp60. When operating in HD resolutions (1080p or 1080i) X10 UHD offers up to 600fps in continuous SSM mode, and up to 2,000fps in USM Live and Replay mode. The system can also complement these specialised applications by performing in a conventional live camera role.
X10 UHD’s frames-per-second performance and operational flexibility in a variety of production situations far outstrips the capabilities of other systems on the market today.
“Feedback from customers in Europe and in the US, has been exceptionally positive,” said Laurent Renard, CEO of I-MOVIX. “People are astounded by the image quality in HD and UHD, delighted by the system’s versatility for different types of production, and by its familiar standard EVS workflow, with higher frame rate levels to meet every broadcast situation.”
