An interview from the 2024 NAB Show in Las Vegas with Randy Wedick of Band Pro Film & Digital. Founded in 1984 by President & CEO Amnon Band, Band Pro specializes in high end cine cameras & lenses; and is the preferred partner for production companies, rental houses, and owner-operators worldwide. In this interview Randy talks with us about the Sony Venice 2 with Rialto 2 System that was on display.

The Optimo Ultra Compact 21-56mm Zoom Lens Full Pack from Angenieux pairs the PL-mount 21 to 56mm zoom lens with both the U35/OG (Ultra 35/Open Gate) and FF/VV (full-frame/VistaVision) IRO (interchangeable rear optics), providing compatibility with a wide range of cine-style cameras. This lens features consistent image quality across focal ranges and distances and boasts a fast maximum aperture of T2.2 in U35 and T2.9 in FF/VV. Its look is consistent with the resolution and balanced contrast found across the Angenieux Optimo series.

Designed for flexibility, the UMS Sandwich Plate provides a quick and easy power solution for any device with a compatible 14V Gold Mount battery plate. Use it to power a monitor and other additional equipment, such as video receivers and remote focus units, reliably from a single power source. The Sandwich Plate is the central part of their Unified Mounting System, supported by a range of UMS accessories that let you attach video transmitters, a Preston MDR 4, Velcro plates, and more.

Capturing lens data is an important component to unlock the full potential of virtual production. The new wireless LDT-V2 gives a camera operator or a Steadicam operator the freedom to work without the limitation of a wired connection, whilst ensuring the VFX teams are getting the data they need in the virtual production. The LDT-V2 takes raw motor information from a lens control system, a smart lens or DCS lens encoder LDT-E2, and translates it into human-readable lens data. The LDT-V2 offers virtual production studios the opportunity to wirelessly deliver accurate lens information in real time, from the action to the engine.
