    image

    DJI, the world's leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, unveiled new technology and tools to customize its enterprise drone platforms for specialized tasks such as infrastructure inspection, precision agriculture, firefighting and search and rescue.

    The new Zenmuse XT2 thermal imaging camera, created in partnership with FLIR Systems, is a critical tool for drone operators to capture heat signatures invisible to the naked eye. Its side-by-side visual and thermal imaging sensors provide unparalleled data capture and situational awareness during emergency services, disaster recovery and industrial inspection uses. DJI's powerful new Payload Software Development Kit (SDK) allows innovative drone startups, developers, and sensor and device manufacturers to easily integrate custom cameras, sensors and other types of payloads onto DJI drones, unlocking the true potential of drone technology for businesses, governments and researchers around the world.

    "The Zenmuse XT2 continues our longstanding partnership with FLIR to create the most powerful thermal imaging solution available on a drone today. This is a significant advancement for public safety professionals who are using drones to save lives and creating new industrial applications across different verticals," said Jan Gasparic, Head of Enterprise Partnerships at DJI. "Our new Payload SDK makes it possible for any manufacturer to create a payload specific to their customers' needs that will work seamlessly with DJI's aircraft. We believe these two advances will not only strengthen DJI's leadership in the commercial drone industry, but will also provide a powerful, flexible and standardized platform which customers from different industries can build upon."

    Intelligent Thermal Data for Critical Missions

    The Zenmuse XT2 is a powerful thermal imaging camera that transforms data into actionable insights. Its gimbal-stabilized, dual-sensor design combines an advanced FLIR® radiometric thermal imager and a 4K visual camera to allow drone operators to view thermal and visual data while in flight, delivering an unmatched level of versatility and image detail for high-performance uses from industrial inspections to public safety operations.

    Professional drone operators can use on-board intelligent features like FLIR MSX® technology to combine visual and temperature data into one image, allowing operators to easily identify objects of concern. DJI's unique Spotlight Pro features let operators focus on safe flight operations and data interpretation while the camera automatically tracks an object through two intelligent flight modes: QuickTrack centers the camera on the selected area while HeatTrack automatically tracks the hottest object in view. The Temp Alarm feature interprets thermal data in real-time and alerts drone operators when an object's temperature exceeds critical thresholds.

    "We are excited to continue our collaboration with DJI to develop sensors for their industry leading drone platforms," said Frank Pennisi, President of the Industrial Business Unit at FLIR Systems. "The Zenmuse XT2 uses a radiometric thermal imaging camera core to capture accurate temperature data for every pixel, ensuring that drone operators have access to as much information as possible during critical and often lifesaving missions."

    The Zenmuse XT2 is compatible with DJI's Matrice 200 Series and Matrice 600 Pro enterprise drones. It will be first available for the DJI Pilot mobile app for Android and later for the DJI XT Pro mobile app for iOS devices. Its rugged design and IP44 ingress protection rating gives it versatility to be flown in a wide variety of conditions including rain, snow, smoke and fog[1]. With a 12-megapixel visual camera, it is available in two thermal sensor resolutions of 640 x 512 or 336 x 256, with 9mm, 13mm, 19mm, and 25mm lenses.

  • Ikan STRATUS Line of Camera Cages

    image

    HOUSTON, Texas (March 27, 2018) - Ikan announces the release of four new camera cage rigs, including a follow focus accessories and lens support systems. The latest cages in the STRATUS line form to the Sony a6500, a7II, a7III series camera bodies, as well as the Panasonic GH4 and GH5 camera bodies. Ikan created the line with universality in mind, while maintaining high quality at a mid-level price range.

    Each camera cage in the STRATUS line uses NATO rails for the top handles, which fit Ikan grips. ARCA-Swiss quick release plates make these cages as universal as possible, or the cages can be attached to most photo tripods in place of the ARCA-Swiss plate. The design on each cage includes cut outs for AV ports, access buttons and battery access.

    "The release of the STRATUS line comes in response to a lack of high quality Sony a7III camera rigs at the mid-level price range," says Product Manager Jeffrey Lowe Lochmann. "As we began work on this cage, we saw other opportunities for developing cages in new directions."

    To complete the most common accessories used in camera rig cages, Ikan developed follow focus and lens supports. The follow focus includes hard stops, blue and red bands to distinguish stopping points, and reusable lens gear. Ikan's static lens support adjusts vertically and mounts to 15 mm rods. The dynamic lens support grips the lens for a custom fit and includes rollers that allow the lens to rotate while mounted. The STRATUS line is great for camera operators or indie filmmakers using Sony a6500, a7II, a7III, or Panasonic GH4/5 series camera bodies.

    Ikan will showcase the new STRATUS camera cage line at the NAB show in Las Vegas, NV from April 9-12, 2018. To test our latest technology, visit booth C10919.

    The Live Production Center facilitates video and audio creation where a limited number of operators are available, such as university sports, webcasting, live streaming and live event video production. The Center makes one-person operation possible for remote camera shooting to streaming transmission.

    NDI, or Network Device Interface, a technology of NewTek Inc. is an advanced video over IP production workflow, allowing distribution of video across network infrastructure rather than specialized video hardware. The AV-HLC100 acts as a hybrid device, bridging baseband (SDI and HDMI) inputs and outputs, with NDI inputs and outputs allowing users to easily transition to the world of IP.

    The HLC100 supports a wide range of both NTSC and PAL video formats* including 3G-SDI video in1080/59.94p and 1080/50p, and enables cross-conversation on inputs. Eight total inputs are available with the choice of SDI or HDMI for input 1, SDI for inputs 2-4, and NDI for input 5-8. Alternatively, one can utilize NDI for up to all eight inputs so that a system can be configured to match the production environment. There are two SDI outputs, with associated NDI outputs; Output 1 is the program output. Output 2 can be assigned to program, preview or to an AUX bus. The AUX bus is useful as an independent secondary output for clean recording or alternate feed.

    The HLC100 Center works directly with Panasonic PTZ and systems cameras, discovering and deploying them automatically using IP video transport (although SDI may be used as well). It will work with all NDI and NDI|HX capable video sources. Compatible cameras include: the new AW-HN38, AW-HN40, AW-UN70, and AW-HN130 integrated PTZs with NDI|HX, and the AW-HE38, AW-HE40, AW-UE70, AW-HE130 PTZ cameras with available upgrade to NDI|HX. Fully integrated support of NDI|HX, NDI High Efficiency Mode, allows for built-in support of NDI by Panasonic professional PTZ cameras, linking them directly to an NDI network, with automatic detection by the AV-HLC100 Live Production Center, as well as seamlessly integrating them with the hundreds of other NDI-capable products in the marketplace.

    “With the HLC100, high-performance professional operation can be realized even in production environments with few operators, limited space and gear, and no expert staff,” said Delix Alex, Product Manager, PSSNA. “As part of Panasonic’s NDI family of products, the HLC100 contributes to an end-to-end IP workflow with single cable connectivity to NDI|HX-capable PTZ camera models, with ultra low latency video, power, audio/video and tally all over one cable. Users can significantly cut install and setup time and yet continue to deliver high quality production.”

    For remote camera operation, the HLC100’s connection and settings can be easily executed using the Easy IP connection function (fully automatic if the connection is to an NDI-enabled camera), and pan, tilt, zoom, and focus operations can be performed with one hand using the large joystick or two hands in combination with dedicated zoom lever and focus/iris knobs. Up to 100 camera presets can be executed from the hardware panel or on the user interface. Commonly accessed camera control functions such as white balance are available for quick access. For advanced settings, a quick short-cut to the camera web interface is provided, allowing access of almost any setting in a Panasonic PTZ camera.

    The HLC100 also supports RTMP (Real-Time Messaging Protocol), enabling footage to be directly uploaded simultaneously to multiple live streaming services such as YouTube Live and Facebook Live. Most common streaming destinations are pre-configured in a simple menu, with many customization options. Streamed footage can be streamed and recorded at the same time for easy archiving.

    A wide range of video effects is available for quick and easy live production work, including a title function with a design template, a clip player in which video and still image data can be used as materials, still image storage, PinP, and more than 190 transition patterns including 3D-DVE patterns. The built-in titling/CG includes the ability to load built-in preset looks and styles, the easy manipulation of title components, and eight preset slots to quickly move between looks. Skype TX, a specialized video production version of Skype, can be used for remote interviews, providing an effective technique for live events, webinars, lectures and presentations.

    The audio mixer functionality is characterized by a maximum of nine inputs, which can be assigned as a combination of embedded audio on SDI or NDI and mic/line inputs. Each input features a seven-band equalizer, compressor and delay control. The visual mixer interface provides the ability to mix and monitor audio levels and adjust quickly and precisely.

    The highly user-friendly panel includes buttons for various functions including camera control and switching, along with audio mixing. Up to eight video systems can be freely assigned to the crosspoint buttons, enabling them to be selected easily. With the capability to handle IP input and output, the HLC100 also allows for live streaming and recording, all over IP. This hardware panel for camera control and switching is complemented with a newly-designed software user interface that enables Multiview monitoring, graphics overlay insertions, media players, audio mixers and much more. This user interface focuses on simplicity and quick and easy operation of advanced settings.

    The AV-HLC100 Live Production Center is available this month with a suggested list price of $13,999.

    Ronkonkoma, NY – April 5, 2018 – The Sigma Corporation today announced the newest accessory for its Cine High Speed 14mm T2 FF Prime Lens – the Clamp-On Ring 162mm COR-11, which extends the front diameter of the lens to 162mm. When attached to a wide-angle matte box compatible with 6.6″ x 6.6″ square type filters such as the ARRI LMB-6 (2-stage), the setup allows cinematographers to film on full-frame cameras without undesired vignetting. The Sigma COR-11 is also compatible with SF Ex-tender SF-E1 (optional) and other third-party accessories. Sigma continues to expand its Cine offering by providing solutions to the increasing demand for cine lenses compatible with digital cinema cameras with large format sensors.

    The Clamp-On Ring 162mm COR-11, along with Sigma Cine lens lines – High Speed S35 Zoom, FF Zoom and FF High Speed Prime, will be on display at the 2018 NAB Show in Las Vegas from April 9th through April 12th in booth C10308.
