NAB 2013: Vision Research's FLEX 4k High Speed And Slow Motion Camera

Vision Research's Flex 4K, launched yesterday.With all the attention being lavished on the Blackmagic announcements yesterday you would be forgiven for missing another 4k landmark, this time from slow motion experts Vision Research. They claim to re-define what’s possible when it comes to high-speed imaging and with the new Phantom Flex4K they maybe right. What strikes you immediately is how small the form factor is, 11.5 x 5.5 x 5.5in. It's only 12Ibs (5.5Kg). But it's what under the hood which is truly different.

Cobham is showing a new HD MPEG4 IP Encoder at NAB 2013.

The encoder provides even more bit rate efficiency with standard, low and ultra-low latency modes. Power consumption rated at 7-9 watts.

A control panel on the encoder enables a cameraman to select a range of different pre-sets directly from the box rather waste time connecting to and configuring via a laptop. It also offers the option of broadcast-standard IFB talkback, which takes advantage of in-built Bluetooth and WiFi for complete wireless connectivity.
