An interview from the 2017 National Association of Broadcasters Convention in Las Vegas with Tom Dickinson of Bexel Global Broadcast Solutions. Bexel is the leading global provider of broadcast services, offering an extensive rental inventory of video and audio equipment, and designing unique solutions for fiber optic management, flypacks, RF intercom, 4K and specialty cameras, systems integration, workflow solutions, and new and used product sales. In this interview Tom talks with us about their new solution for High-Speed Cameras, the Clarity Camera.
Bexel's brand-new Clarity 800 camera, was developed in direct response to customer demand for a high-speed, POV camera with HFR and the real-time processing needed for live sports. As a part of their specialty camera initiative, Bexel announced the launch of Clarity 800, a custom-built camera that is the world’s first miniature, high-frame-rate (HFR) point-of view camera for live production.
Building on Bexel and Camera Corps’ unrivaled experience of using specialty cameras in live broadcast, the company developed the standard-setting Clarity 800 camera system to meet sports and event producers’ increasing demand for high-quality, real-time HFR video. The Clarity 800 offers HFR in HD up to 8x (480 fps), and 1080p processing for superior quality, capable of all video formats including 1080i and 720p. The camera delivers complete camera functionality in a form factor that is only 4.7 inches high, 2.56 inches wide, and 1 inch thick. The Clarity 800 easily integrates into a live event ecosystem, operating as a broadcast camera system with real-time processing via fiber optics and integration with industry-standard video servers. Key features include a full-function camera remote control panel (RCP) for paint control of the camera and a positive-lock lens mount with lens control of focus, iris, and zoom motors.
The Clarity 800 is the first model in Bexel’s new family of cameras targeting the POV market. Future camera models for both HD and 4K (UHD), using the same system design, will be introduced later in 2017.
