Over in the consumer electronics world, television manufacturers have been pushing for the adoption of 4K TVs to help drive sluggish product sales.
The Specs: FOR-A says the new camera offers fiber I/O connections built directly into the unit to facilitate its use in the field, and the camera also incorporates a high-sensitivity CMOS color sensor to help the camera produce detailed 4,096 x 2,160 images.
“FOR-A is excited to showcase this new version of the FT-ONE camera and debut our ZE-ONE 4K extraction system at NAB,” says Hiro Tanoue, president of FOR-A Corporation of America. “We are now offering the FT-ONE with fiber connections built into the unit, making it easier when the production calls for the camera to be used a far distance away from the base station.”
The new camera also includes the ability to output a channel in QFHD configuration (four 1080p 3G-SDI) outputs, while its other channel outputs a down-converted HD-SDI for live viewing and playback. FOR-A adds that the camera captures images as uncompressed data on the product’s internal memory, which has a capacity of 9.4 seconds, and it stores this data on hot-swappable SSD cartridges, each of which is capable of storing 84 seconds of 4K content at 900fps.
Solutions: The new FT-ONE 4K camera can be used for live events such as sports and digital cinematography applications.
