Featured Interview: Q&A with AbelCine
Check out the new Phantom Miro M-Series!
Recently, we had a chance to catch up with Moe Shore, Phantom Product Line Manager for AbelCine to discuss some new additions to the Phantom high-speed digital camera line from Vision Research.
Q: What new developments can we expect from the Phantom line at NAB?
A: This year Vision Research is launching the Miro M-series – the most accessible line of Phantom high-speed cameras ever. With an extremely compact, lightweight body and an affordable price-point, the Miro M-series offers an entry into professional high-speed digital imaging and is ideal for handheld work. The flagship of the line is the Miro M320S.
Q: What are the key specifications of the Miro M320S?
A: The Miro M320S has a sensor size near that of 35mm film and can record 1920x1080 up to 1,500 fps with an ISO of 1,100. Its maximum RAM size is 12GB. Data is transferred from RAM to an onboard CineFlash drive. An HD-SDI output is also available on this model.
Q: What is the Miro's image quality like?
A: When shooting high frame rates, one of the critical issues is light sensitivity, because the exposures are so quick. The new Miro cameras are rated at 1100 ISO, which is very fast, very sensitive. This means the image is well exposed without the need for massive amounts of light. Combined with Miro's high resolution and advanced colorimetry, this makes for truly cinematic quality images when using the RAW files, as well as superb quality television when recording the HD-SDI signal.

Featured Interview: Q&A with Location Sound Corp
Q: What are you most excited to see while at NAB 2012?
A: We are hoping to see any new and innovative solutions to capturing audio in the field, and what the future might be for the recording media currently in use.
Q: What trends in technology do you see on the horizon?
A: For the television and broadcast markets, the trend has long been away from the cart-based recording of audio in feature-film-like production, to reality TV-style production where your gear is all in a bag, and you are running all day. More and more channels of wireless audio in an ever smaller, lighter package is the way things are headed. And those solutions that best meet these needs are going to define what production audio looks like over the next few years.
