Deep-dive into TECHNOVISION 1.5X and Evolution 2X Anamorphics

Nov 9th, 6pm (GMT)

Cinematographers who seek the classic look of the iconic TECHNOVISION lenses from the 1970s can now achieve that look with the new TECHNOVISION 1.5X series currently consisting of five primes (40, 50, 75, 100 and 135mm) and two anamorphic zooms (40-70mm and 70-200mm).

The EVOLUTION 2X are built on the success of the legendary and nowadays rare frontanamorphic Kowas. The original set consists of 4 focal lengths (40, 50, 75, 100) and was extended by a new developed 32mm and 135mm. The lenses are the smallest, most compact cine anamorphics on the market today performing magnificently on S35 cameras and from the 75mm on up to Full Format (36 x 24mm).

Light Widow

Filter Reading Matte Box Demo + Q&A

Nov. 10th, 5pm (GMT) | Nov. 11th, 1am (GMT)

The Light Widow FRS-Light is a first of its kind filter reading matte box. The filter reading system allows users to easily swap filters in and out without having to go through the process of adding and removing filter tags to the side of the matte box. Using small RFID, the FRS-Light detects the type and position of each inserted filter and displays the information so that the cam op and AC can easily keep track of what is in the matte box. On top of that, the FRS-Light logs the filter information to a removable SD card. Using timecode, the matte box filter data can easily be referenced for each take after shooting. In the future, filter info also will be sent directly to the camera metadata for easy accessibility during post-production.

We will dive into all the features of our new FRS-Light filter reading matte box, including mechanical functionality, workflow, and integration.

Mo-Sys Engineering

Focus pulls between real and virtual in an LED volume

Nov 11th, 5pm (GMT)

Mo-Sys has now added the ability to seamlessly pull focus between the real and virtual scene, whilst continually monitoring the camera’s position relative to the LED wall. The feature is called Cinematic XR Focus. Using Preston wireless lens controllers, focus pullers are now able to set up for the specific lens mounted on the camera. The Mo-Sys solution takes the control signals from the Preston and allows it to move both the real and virtual focus plane up to the LED wall, then it seamlessly shifts to controlling just the virtual focus plane in the virtual graphics scene. This is possible even with a moving camera.

Join us for a demonstration of this innovative new feature.
