FOR-A Showcases 2/3-inch, 1,000fps, 4K Ultra Slow-Motion Camera and New Stadium Solution
FOR-A Corporation of America showcased its unique approach to live sports a the SVG Summit with a demonstration of the world’s first 2/3-inch platform, 4K, 1,000fps Ultra Slow Motion camera and a new system for real-time video and graphic display on LED screens.
“We can’t wait to show this technology at this year’s SVG Summit,” says FOR-A Americas President Satoshi Kanemura. “Sports audiences are very demanding, and we’ve got two exceptional products to showcase. The FT-ONE-SS4K 4K ultra-high-speed camera uses new imaging system with market standard 2/3-inch B4 mount, not a single chip with a PL mount like competitive cameras. There’s absolutely no sacrifice on brightness. While a single sensor loses 2.5 stops brightness using a lens conversion adaptor, a 2/3-inch platform provides a deep depth of field, allowing the user to easily focus, even at over 100x zoom.”
The FT-ONE-SS4K is ideal for sports producers who need to offer simultaneous live 4K Ultra HD output and 4K Ultra HD (up to 1,000fps) super slow motion playback output -within a conventional studio camera workflow.
The Envivo Ribbon system is making its debut at the SVG Summit. Ribbon offers stadiums a new way to display content on LED screens, with advanced features, including as-run logs for commercial playout and scheduling and the use of real-time graphic overlays. Users can also control and display content to multiple displays at the same time, control multiple units and automatically map content to the right display resolution and size.
“The Envivo Ribbon system incorporates much of the feedback we’ve received from our live sports customers,” says Kanemura. “It’s extremely easy to use, reliable and provides a real-time, integrated ribbon that makes for incredibly detailed, dynamic presentations.”
