Camera Corps Clarity Makes NAB NY Debut

News Image
At the recent NAB Show New York, Camera Corps demonstrated Clarity, which delivers real-time output and high frame rate SDI for use with slow motion replay servers.

Measuring 2.6 x 1 x 4.7 inches, the Clarity head is practically invisible to other cameras covering a scene. Image capture is via a 7-megapixel micro four thirds sensor, custom designed to operate at high frame rates. The camera can also be genlocked and has a wide temperature tolerance, from -13 to +122 degrees Fahrenheit, allowing outdoor use, from winter sports to mid-summer events.

Completing the Clarity system is a full-functioned remote control panel with paint, focus, iris and zoom control. Optical fibre cabling enables easy setup and long-distance signal transport. Additional features include a positive-lock lens mount plus a global shutter with speeds of 1/60, 1/125, 1/500 and 1/1000 second. Sensitivity is 2000 lux at F11 aperture. Video can be output in 1080p, 1080i and 720 formats at 50 or 59.94 Hz.

Barry Parker, Commercial Manager, Camera Corps, said: "The Clarity is far smaller than traditional high speed broadcast camera heads yet can capture high quality HD at up to 480 frames per second, eight times real-time at 50p or 60p frame rate. Weighing just 12 ounces, it greatly extends the opportunities available to producers seeking to deliver slow motion imagery from practically any outdoor or indoor location. With its ultra-compact dimensions, the camera head can easily be positioned right in the middle of the action. The Clarity is also ideal for fixed locked-off shots or use on a jib, Polecam or lightweight robotic pedestal where movement is required. A UHD version operating at two times real-time is also available."
