For-A To Show 4K Super Slow Motion at Cine Gear Expo
FOR-A Corporation of America plans to showcase its FT-ONE full 4K super slow motion camera at the upcoming Cine Gear Expo, taking place May 31-June 1 at The Studios at Paramount in Hollywood. FOR-A will be in Booth #S323, where they will also display the FT-1READ – a RAW data to DPX converter available with the FT-ONE camera.
First introduced at last year’s Cine Gear Expo, the award-winning FT-ONE is ideal for digital cinematography applications. The camera is the first of its kind to complete the 4K workflow by introducing the ability to simultaneously record and play back super slow motion images at full 4K resolution. The FT-ONE’s high-sensitivity CMOS color sensor, FT1-CMOS, enables high-speed recording at up to 900 frames per second (fps). The camera captures images as uncompressed raw data on the system’s internal memory, which has a recording capacity of 9.4 seconds. This data is then stored on one of two hot-swappable SSD cartridges, each of which is capable of storing 84 seconds of full 4K resolution images.
FOR-A will also be showing the FT-1READ, an option available with the FT-ONE for easy file conversion. The FT-1READ takes the RAW data from the SSD drives, imports all recorded info, and converts it to a DPX file.
“The FT-ONE has received many accolades for its innovative technology since the camera’s introduction,” says Hiro Tanoue, President for FOR-A Corporation of America. “Cine Gear Expo continually attracts many major players in high-end entertainment production, and FOR-A is looking forward to showcasing the camera and its stunning 4K capabilities again at this year’s show.”
The FT-ONE camera uses a PL mount lens and a global shutter system, which allows the camera to capture fast-moving subjects in crisp detail at 4K resolution. The FT-ONE is designed as a self-contained unit that is dependable and easy to use.
Cine Gear Expo is the premier film, video, and digital media expo for the entertainment industry, and is the largest event of its kind. 2013 marks the conference’s 17th year.
