The Vitec Group at Inter BEE
The Vitec Group will show highlights from its range of products and services for broadcast, film, and photographic professionals. Inter BEE 2017 visitors will see Gemini, the new Litepanels 2×1 soft panel, the multi-award-winning Intelligent Prompting from Autoscript, the μVRC (micro VRC) robotic head controller from Vinten; and the IBC2017 triple-award-winning flowtech 75 tripod – the newest joint venture between Sachtler and Vinten.
Litepanels: All-New Gemini
At Inter BEE 2017, the Vitec Group’s Litepanels brand will showcase Gemini, the industry’s most accurate and agile softlight. Recently launched at IBC2017, Gemini is an all-new, 2×1 RGB-WW soft panel that combines daylight, tungsten, and red-green-blue LEDs with flexible, precise colour adjustment for the industry’s most accurate full-spectrum white light. Adding daylight and tungsten means lighting professionals can reliably achieve exceptional colour and realistic skin tones – eliminating the need for colour correction and saving postproduction time and money.
Astra 3X/6X and Sola 4+/6+ LED Lighting
Litepanels’ next-generation Astra 3X and 6X LED lights will also be on display. Building on the quality and popularity of the innovative Astra 1×1 panel, the next-generation panels now feature a 50 percent increase in output with reduced power consumption for longer battery run time. This means the new Astra 6X is six times brighter than the original 1×1 version, while the Astra 3X is three times brighter. Litepanels will also showcase its daylight-balanced Sola 4+ and Sola 6+ Fresnel lights. The Sola range of LEDs provides cool daylight illumination with the unique ability to control both focus and intensity via standard DMX 512 protocol and without the heat generation of a traditional Fresnel.
Sachtler and Vinten: flowtech 75 and flowtech Carbon-Fiber Tripod Technology
With three award wins at IBC2017, there is much interest in flowtech 75, a new tripod that simplifies and accelerates camera operators’ workflows with instant setup, height range, and torsional stiffness. Compatible with all major 75mm fluid heads, flowtech 75 tripods offer a set of two-stage, carbon-fibre legs with an easy-to-remove midlevel spreader, rubber feet, and a payload capacity of 20 kilograms. Unique, quick-release brakes at the top of the tripod make it possible to deploy all legs simultaneously and adjust them to the ground’s surface automatically, eliminating the need for operators to bend over or manually adjust multiple brakes on each leg.
Lightweight and easy to transport, flowtech 75 is designed to be carried comfortably on the camera operator’s shoulder, with magnetic locks that ensure the tripod legs remain stable during transport. The flowtech 75 can be deployed as low as 26cm and as high as 153cm without the detachable spreader, and between 63cm and 157cm with the spreader.
Autoscript: Intelligent Prompting
Fresh off a BIRTV 2017 Outstanding Product award win, Autoscript’s Intelligent Prompting will be on display at Inter BEE 2017. Intelligent Prompting also received a 2017 NAB Best of Show award in Las Vegas following its April launch. As the broadcast industry’s first completely IP-enabled, end-to-end teleprompting solution, Intelligent Prompting reinvents prompting workflows so that devices can be located anywhere, delivering ease-of-use and foolproof redundancy. The inclusion of video outputs/inputs allows users to transition to IP at their own pace, while significant hardware improvements further enhance the solution. Since Intelligent Prompting units require no counterbalance in most situations, they are up to 50 percent lighter than prompting solutions that do require counterbalance. Combined with increased stability, this weight reduction eases payload issues for camera supports and makes the on-camera teleprompters ideal for robotic installations.
Vinten: Vantage and μVRC Controller
Vinten’s Vantage is a compact and lightweight robotic camera head that offers unmatched flexibility and broadcast-quality movement and control at the same price point as a traditional pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) camera head. Vantage enables customers to choose the camera and lens that meet their requirements, supporting a wide range of pro-video camcorders from a variety of manufacturers, including Canon and Sony, as well as both full-servo and manual lens types.
As the first controller of its kind, the μVRC is the perfect companion to the Vantage, giving the camera head even greater versatility and flexibility for enterprise video capture. The μVRC controller allows studios and venues of any size to control high-end robotics and third-party PTZs. When paired with the Vantage, the μVRC offers users a complete robotic solution that suits most any budget.
