I-MOVIX, Vision Research Jointly Develop New High-Speed HD Camera System

I-MOVIX and Vision Research continue to collaborate on high-speed camera technologies, a move that has already produced the new SprintCam Vvs HD system, operating at frame rates from 25 to 2,700 fps in 1080i50 or from 25 to 5,800 fps in 720p60, and providing instant replay at native HD resolution and image quality.

“Working with I-MOVIX allows Vision Research to continue to focus on what we do best, building digital high-speed cameras,” says Rick Robinson, vice president of marketing, Vision Research. “Over the past few years, these cameras have seen growing use in ultra-slow-motion applications for broadcast. We’ve added some features to the cameras to make them more appealing in the broadcast market, but rely upon partners like I-MOVIX to help provide a true ‘broadcast ready’ solution.”

Specially designed for live broadcast use, SprintCam Vvs HD can be specified in a standard camera version or optimized for shoulder-mounted portable shooting, providing an outstanding level of convenience and creativity in ultra-slow-motion action.

New features include a dual output allowing the camera operator to shoot and record at the same time, segmented memory, a replay variable speed function (for setting up speed-ramps in playback to seamlessly transition from live action to super slow-motion and back), and integration of both live- and replay-view on the viewfinder.
