LMC takes ultra slo-mo down into the POV arena
The Antelope PICO is the newest member of LMC´s Antelope camera family and is being billed as the world´s first ‘POV-style’ Ultra Slow Motion System. According to LMC it is based on a state-of-the-art 2/3-in CMOS chip providing 2k capabilities, a global shutter and extreme photo-sensitivity at 600ISO 0dB. The camera head measures a minuscule 29x29x50mm and therefore looks set to fit in surroundings where no other slo mo unit has gone before. And yes, that is a €1 coin in the picture.
The integrated frame buffer records up to 330 frames/second (660fps in extended mode) in native HD1080i. Sequences of max. 30 seconds @ 330 fps are possible using 32GB memory storage. A permanent LIVE HD SDI output is available also during replay, while both software based and RS232 serial controls are available.
LMC has designed special broadcast OCP and RCP to integrate the Antelope PICO in professional broadcast environment, with the idea being to use only one RCP and one OCP for up to four cameras. Wireless and Fibre solutions will both be available, and the unit will be available for sale, lease or rent right after NAB 2012.
