An interview from the 2014 International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam with Vojtech Pokorny of Band Pro Film & Digital. Band Pro Film & Digital, Inc. specializes in products and solutions for professional filmmakers and videographers. From their offices in Burbank, Atlanta, New York City, Munich, Tel Aviv, and the newly introduced Berlin Divison, Band Pro offers the highest level of knowledge and expertise along with the finest equipment and accessories available. The company’s research and development protocol allows product lines to expand toward the newest technologies so clients can focus on the art and craft of cinematography. In this interview Vojtech talks with us about the NiPros LS-750GT 4K+X Optical Fiber Camera Adapter, the Fill-Lite 200, and the opening of the Band Pro Berlin office.
Nipros is a company that has jumped into the 4K cinema camera-to-television business headfirst. Their LS 4K system basically turns a freestanding 4K digital cinema camera, like a RED, ARRI ALEXA, Sony F55 or Canon EOS C500, into a fully integrated live television camera. Nipros is expanding its line of professional fiber optic technologies with the new high power LS-750GT/850GT and the LS-750/-850 4K fiber optic systems. The fiber optic system expands 4K capabilities to new markets and applications beyond the digital motion picture- from high-end television production and live events to houses of worship, education, corporate, and more. Professionals will gain even greater flexibility with a fiber optic system that is compatible with nearly any 4K camera from any major manufacturer. The Nipros “4K+X” fiber optic systems offer professionals more creative options for acquisition and production and supports major video formats such as 4K (4096 x 2160), QFHD (3840 x 2160), and HD.
The foundation of the Fill-Lite product line, the 24 x 27 inch Fill-Lite 200, is the breakthrough for end users in the digital era and an excellent soft light for location or studio use with low power requirements. It starts with a single square light source on a yoke, and incorporates all electronics onboard. These include options such as manual dimming, daisy chaining to link fixtures, battery or universal power, DMX 512 for studio, and an iPAD app for wireless operation. The Fill-Lite 200 utilizes a baby receiver for hanging or mounting on a stand. The LED’s are selected for color and performance consistency making this light the softest, most natural light source on the market today.
