Cartoni, Vocas and more at Cine Gear Expo

Manios Digital & Film will showcase new camera accessories from Cartoni, Vocas, Kinotehnik and Hawk-Woods at Cine Gear Expo 2017, in Hollywood.

Attendees of the event at Paramount Studios will have a chance to inspect, up close, newly-developed fluid heads, tripods, specialty rigs, matte boxes, lights and power systems, and have their questions answered by Manios Digital & Film camera professionals.

The company will be showing several new products from Italian camera support manufacturer Cartoni developed for film production. They include Total Dutch, a revolutionary head design for Dutch angle compositions, which ProVideo Coalition featured recently. Based on Cartoni’s famed Dutch head, Total Dutch expands the canted angle to full 360-degree rotation. The Total Dutch head can be mounted on any heavy-duty pan-and-tilt head and provides nodal settings to any camera package up to 25 kg.

“We look forward to Cine Gear every year because it’s an opportunity to talk one-on-one with the cinematographers and camera operators who use our products in the field,” said Manios Digital & Film president Steve Manios Jr. “We are particularly excited this year as we have several great new products that directly address situations pros face in the field every day.”

RED takes Guardians of the Galaxy to Cine Gear Expo

Two panels featuring Henry Braham, BSC, Dean Devlin and Red Bull Media House will star on the cultural side of RED’s presence at Cine Gear Expo 2017.

Cine Gear Expo 2017 visitors will have a chance to interact with a range of DSMC2 cameras, including SCARLET-W, RED EPIC-W, WEAPON 8K S35 and WEAPON 8K VV. Additionally, RED will be demonstrating the latest workflow options – covering their new image processing pipeline (IPP2) announced March this year, HDR, and 8K.

RED’s new image processing pipeline (IPP2), which is available for download, offers a completely overhauled workflow experience, from image capture through post production. RED cameras with the HELIUM 8K S35 sensor can now monitor and control the new image pipeline in-camera, while all other camera owners benefit from the new image pipeline in post through the latest beta REDCINE-X PRO upgrade. Those who prefer RED’s original color science workflow have the option to toggle between IPP2 and the legacy workflow both in-camera as well as in REDCINE-X PRO.

RED will be joined in their booth by a wide variety of manufacturers of lenses, camera modules and accessories, including RT Motion, Kippertie, foolcontrol, and Offhollywood, as the Paramount Studios space returns to life with another edition of Cine Gear Expo.

RED will also take attendees behind the scenes with two panels in Paramount’s Sherry Lansing Theater, with the first happening June 2 at 12:45pm. Director Nicholas Schrunk and key members of Red Bull Media House’s production team will discuss the making of the feature documentary Blood Road.

Blood Road follows the journey of ultra-endurance mountain bike athlete Rebecca Rusch and her Vietnamese riding partner, Huyen Nguyen, as they pedal 1,200 miles along the infamous Ho Chi Minh Trail. Their purpose was to reach the crash site and → continue…

Timecode Systems takes VR to Cine Gear Expo 2017

The modular, multicamera VR rig launched in April by Timecode Systems and 360RIZE will be on display at Cine Gear Expo 2017, along with other solutions for VR production and postproduction.

NAB 2017 is over, but Cine Gear Expo 2017 is round the corner. During the 22nd Annual Cine Gear Expo, which returns to the landmark Paramount Studios on June 1-4, 2017, attendees will have the opportunity to explore and compare the latest tools and services in filmmaking technology in a relaxed Hollywood studio environment. Among the 300 exhibits expected at the event, Timecode Systems will be showcasing not only a new, cost-effective way to streamline multicamera production workflows using the UltraSync ONE, but also demonstrating how its system can now be configured to offer efficiency benefits to professional VR workflows.

According to Timecode Systems, UltraSync ONE redefines industry expectations of small, budget-friendly sync boxes. The company adds that “size and price are important factors when it comes to timecode solutions, but not at the cost of the quality of the sync and the confidence that battery life will last an entire day of filming.”

Measuring 55mm x 44mm x 17mm, weighing only 39g, offering a battery life of more than 25 hours and priced at just $299, UltraSync ONE is, claims the company, “the smallest, most cost-effective generator and transceiver on the market to provide timecode, genlock for camera sync, and word clock for sound, all synchronized wirelessly and with sub-line sync accuracy over bi-directional BLINK RF. These combine to provide synchronization to such a high degree of accuracy that it’s suitable for even genlock-synchronized 360-degree VR arrays.”

In April Timecode Systems and 360RIZE launched a modular, multicamera VR rig designed to house GoPro HERO4 cameras with → continue…
