gopro&  sennheiser

An exciting advancement comes from Sennheiser, who are talking about developing a new action camera microphone which will allow GoPro users to finally match their breathtaking footage captured at the extremes with high-quality audio.

Sennheiser’s product, on show in the Future Zone, is a mini external microphone that the company claimed is waterproof and nearly immune against snow, ice, and wind. Based on a lavalier design, it features an internal protective device, the Umbrella Diaphragm, which is located above the acoustically active membrane. A windshield made of a special foam material ensures that the mic can even be used for water sports while fully retaining its wind protection properties.According to Sennheiser, the microphone’s windshield is being fine-tuned. It needs to protect the mic reliably against wind noise and must retain this quality even when completely immersed in water. A classic hairy windshield or a classic foam windshield could not do the job – if they get wet, quality sound has a hard time travelling through it.

We can’t wait to see the finished product!

SmallHD has announced two new 13” production monitors. The first is called the 1303 HDR , which features a bright 1500 nit display (viewable in full sunlight), and provides HDR (high dynamic range) viewing capabilities. The second is the 1303 Studio, designed for use in more controlled lighting environments. The 1303 Studio features a 400-nit display and provides the same feature set, minus the high brightness and HDR capabilities of the 1303 HDR.

According to SmallHD the 1303 HDR and Studio feature an extremely wide viewing angle with little to no visible color shift. The 1303 HDR also utilizes an optically bonded glass screen with an anti-reflective coating for added protection while eliminating glare.

The 1303 HDR builds on the HDR technology that SmallHD developed for its 17”, 24” and 32” Production Monitors, but in a much smaller package. The 1303 HDR looks to be a good field monitor for small crews, who don’t require a large monitor, but need something bigger than your typical 5/7″ on camera display.

The new monitors can display a 1920×1080 image on 10bit IPS LCD panels, with a 4-up signal view. The 1303 HDR offers a high color range, capable of reproducing the P3 color gamut. Plus it provides an HDR Preview function with built-in tools for real-time monitoring and customizable camera gamma settings.

Both 1303 HDR and Studio can support any 3D LUTs using SmallHD’s ColorFlow technology. Previously created look-up tables can be used on-set, or LUTS can be loaded via the monitor’s full-size SD card slot.

The new monitors can be fed via either HDMI or SDI inputs and can output to either format as well. Cross conversion takes place in a mere single frame.

Like the rest of the SmallHD Production and Studio monitors, the 13” versions are extremely rugged—built with a solid, milled aluminum chassis. To deal with on-set realities, even the 3mm thick screen impact protector can be replaced in seconds.

For quick deployment the monitors can be used at home on a rack, table-top, arm, C-stand or cart. The feature numerous ¼-20 mounting options all around the frames, plus the RapidRail system that can provide quick mounting of various accessories like wireless receivers and focus systems.

Power is via 12VDC through a 4-pin XLR connector. An optional onboard Anton/Bauer Gold mount or V-mount battery plate with a 4-pin XLR connector can be attached. A video receiver (Teradek, Paralinx, etc) can be mounted to the RapidRail system and powered by the LEMO accessory connection on the back of the monitor or D-TAP through the battery bracket.

Both monitors will be available on SmallHD.com and through SmallHD authorized resellers in Fall 2016. For more information visit: smallhd.com.

Sphere

Any Rig in Any Environment
Compatible with any HDMI or HD-SDI camera, the Sphere is the most flexible 360º monitoring and streaming solution for 4-camera VR rigs. Its 4 USB ports offer an integrated power solution for GoPro rigs and its stereo analog audio input allows you to embed the output of your soundboard right into the live feed.

Sphere also includes twin Lemo connectors for redundant power and dual 10/100 Ethernet ports for Internet connectivity and attaching a second Sphere unit.

Sphere Stitching Engine
Sphere is unique in that it doesn’t require a PC to stitch panoramic footage into a 360º format. Instead, the stitching engine is iOS based and offers real-time compositing of up to 8 1080p camera feeds, allowing you and your crew to be more mobile than ever before.

Color Calibration Settings
Users can calibrate each camera’s white balance, tint, and color profile right from the Sphere application. If you need a quick calibration, the application can color match across all video feeds at the same time to provide a balanced image instantly.

In-App Recording
The Sphere iOS application allows you to save individual 360º snapshots and your stitched video footage directly to your iPad’s hard drive in MP4 format.

Wireless and Internet Connectivity
Sphere connects to wireless access points and the Internet via a 10/100 Ethernet jack. To enhance the wireless range of your Sphere stream, we recommend connecting the device to a Ubiquiti access point for a robust WiFi signal up to several thousand feet.

Support for up to 8 Cameras
Should you need more than 4 cameras for your 360º production, a second Sphere can be daisy-chained using the device’s 10/100 Ethernet port.
