SprintCam Vvs HD, X10 and X10+ : Ready for purchase through the I-MOVIX distribution network
(Phantom Powered) is the ultra-slow-motion system for live HD broadcast production developed by I-MOVIX. Featuring the outstanding quality, performance, and usability of SprintCam technology, SprintCam Vvs HD operates at frame rates up to 2,600 fps in 1080i50 or up to 5,600 fps in 720p60 (more than 100 times slower than live action) and provides instant replay at native high-definition resolution and image quality.
The added-value of SprintCam Vvs HD :
The SprintCam Vvs HD system comprises : the latest generation of Vision Research high-speed HD camera ; an operational control panel providing real broadcast quality color matrix and control of frame rate choice ; a slow-motion remote allowing the user to select a video sequence and instantly replay it with an HD-SDI output for live broadcast or storage on any HD-SDI recorder for a later use ; and the camera control unit, providing control of the slow-motion instant replay, camera control, and data interface between camera and SDI recorder.
(Phantom Powered) is a unique and brand-new broadcast-integrated system that delivers groundbreaking up-to-10-times real-time super slow motion in full HD, combined with the EVS XT3 live production server.
Developed in partnership with EVS, the X10 system, associated with the EVS XT3 production server under LSM control, smashes the performance ceiling of existing super slow motion systems, which are restricted to three times slower than real time or 75 fps.
X10 delivers an unprecedented level of convenience and creativity in ultra-slow-motion action. Aside from providing frame-rate speeds far in excess of other slow-motion systems, X10 also offers superior flexibility and integration into broadcast operations, with a range of features and ease of use optimized for the rigors of demanding broadcast schedules.
The X10 system is a fully broadcast-integrated solution, and includes the latest generation Vision Research high-speed HD camera, a camera control unit, and an operational control panel. X10 is used with the industry standard EVS XT3 production server, using multiple inputs on this server. As it is the case for other solutions developed by I-MOVIX, the camera is connected to the camera control unit (CCU) thanks to an SMPTE hybrid fiber, enabling a long-distance optical fiber transmission.
Allying superior performance, clever design, and breathtaking image quality, X10+ extends the range of ultra motion broadcast applications.
X10+ is the two-in-one ultra motion system optimized for the rigors of demanding broadcast schedules. This new I-MOVIX solution provides the relevant answer for sports productions requiring a speed capture higher than 250 frames per second in full HD. Indeed, in addition to the unique features provided by the X10 camera, X10+ can also operate on an extreme slow motion mode at frame rates up to 2,600 fps in 1080i50 or up to 5,600 fps in 720p60 (100 times slower than live action) with instant replay.
The X10+ system is a fully broadcast-integrated solution, and includes the latest generation Vision Research high-speed HD camera, a camera control unit, an operational control panel, and a slow-motion remote panel (for use in ultra-slow motion replay mode). As it is the case for the other solutions developed by I-MOVIX, the camera is connected to the camera control unit (CCU) thanks to an SMPTE hybrid fiber, enabling a long-distance optical fiber transmission.
Postioned as the ultra slow motion systems supplier for broadcast, I-MOVIX develops and brings to the broadcast market fully integrated extreme slow motion solutions. With major references and sports events attendance, the Belgian company is the leader in the new market of slow motion at very high speed (from 75 to over 5,000 frames per second).

REDSEE Underwater Housing
The REDSEE underwater housing was developed by award winning underwater cameraman Hugh Fairs for Filmways Ltd to take the Phantom Gold camera for the first time into the underwater realm. The REDSEE is a robust deepwater housing tried and tested on several Discovery Shark Week assignments in the US, Mexico, South Africa and the Bahamas.
Multiple configuration options, using the CineMag on board, allow both free diving up to 150 feet deep for wildlife assignments or complete laptop control via an underwater Ethernet cable for Feature Film or Commercial projects in more controlled situations. Using Cooke Prime lenses, the images produced are nothing less than spectacular.
Run times of 90 minutes are possible while diving completely untethered, and up to three hour run times can be achieved using custom built underwater block batteries.
The housing is available worldwide with its builder and operator Hugh Fairs or for dry hire with a trained technician.
