At the upcoming NAB Show, FOR-A will debut the next generation high-speed full 4K camera in its FT-ONE series, the FT-ONE-LS-12G. Designed specifically for fast-paced sporting events, the FT-ONE-LS-12G offers high-quality image performance, even in low light conditions that are often found in sports stadium venues and can prove troublesome for most high-frame-rate cameras.
Also on the camera front, FOR-A will introduce the VFC-7000A variable frame rate HD camera at NAB. Additionally, the company will debut the RFC-ONE real-time flash corrector, VRCAM-NX sensor-less virtual studio/on-air graphics system, and MBP-1000VS-12G multi-channel video server in its NAB booth, #C5117.
The FT-ONE-LS-12G supports full 4K shooting in maximum 500 frames per second (fps) or up to 1,200 fps high frame rate shooting in full HD resolution. Ready for workflows of all kinds, the camera is equipped with a newly developed original sensor that enables noise reducing. This latest addition in the FT-ONE series produces high-quality images when shooting with a 2/3-inch mounted lens via B4-lens mount adapter, as well as PL lenses. While playing back super slow-motion coverage, the FT-ONE-LS-12G camera offers the ability to independently move the camera head around to capture the next crucial shot. The FT-ONE-LS-12G also features simultaneous output of live and super slow-motion video and is newly equipped with a 12G-SDI port for output, storage partitioning, and 24-axis color correction. The camera comes optional with FOR-A’s exclusive flicker corrector technology, eliminating concerns about the effects of low light when shooting high-speed during night games or in dome stadiums.
Other solutions being introduced in the camera stage area of FOR-A’s NAB booth include the RFC-ONE real time flash corrector and VFC-7000A variable frame rate camera. Ideal for news production, the RFC-ONE provides automatic real-time detection and correction of flash. The solution maintains a clear, natural appearance by reducing flash brightness. With 700 fps and internal recording up to 29 seconds, the VFC-7000A is a compact, lightweight, easy to operate variable frame rate camera that is capable of high-speed HD recordings in an all-in-one self-contained unit.
FOR-A will also debut the VRCAM-NX sensor-less virtual studio/on-air graphics system at the NAB show. Featuring an intuitive interface and full set of templates, the VRCAM-NX on-air graphics system solution offers many advantages in program production, including camera control functionality of up to four virtual cameras with 32 positions per camera, video effects including defocus control and animation effects, and one-touch operation playlist features that simply production operations.
Additionally, FOR-A will introduce the MBP-1000VS-12G multi-channel video server. Ideal for 4K editing environments, the MBP-1000VS-12G offers quad-channel XAVC codec support and dual-channel 12G-SDI input and output. The MBP-1000VS-12G allows simultaneous input/output with 4K UHD and HD. With the video server, users can choose from three SSD capacities to meet their system needs, and have the option to add an LTO option for immediate archiving of captured 4K material or extended recording. Offering a full range of playout and ingest system applications, the MBP-1000VS-12G is controllable from a variety of automated production control systems (APCs).
