IP video specialists Teradek are discovering new ways to incorporate their ability to stream video from cameras with a bundled product seen at a London trade show last week called Case. This new turnkey video assist system uses their original product, the Cube's wireless encoding technology to transmit video with almost instant multi-user wireless access and remote iPad monitoring. Prices start at a £2,495 + VAT.
The new digital motion picture camera A-cam dII from Swedish camera manufacturer Ikonoskop features the Interchangeable Mount System PS-IMS from P+S Technik for ultimate lens interoperability. With the open industry standard PS-IMS, users can choose from different lens mount adapters like PL, C-mount Leica M, Canon, Nikon etc to capture cinematic moments in a digital world. The PS-IMS adapters are interchangeable, so different mounts can be used on one camera.
Seen at the recent BVE show on the Canford stand was this wireless viewfinder and remote control for up to four DSLR cameras. The new Aputure Gigtube II can be used remotely up to 100 metres over a 2.4GHz link for both stills photography and video capture. According to how remote control features in your life the £150 price tag is either good value or puts the Gigtube way down your priority list.
The HPX250 records 100Mbs AVC-Intra, carries a full complement of HD-SDI ports and XLR inputs for 16 bit 4 channel audio, as well as dual P2 slots enabling hot-swap recording. Its 22x zoom lens, in conjunction with 2.2m pixel 3MOS sensors and a 20 bit digital signal processor, delivers enough image quality to warrant a place in the approved BBC camera list.

The offer is available through authorised resellers until 19th March 2012. The offer is subject to availability and credit approval. Full terms are available online.
