Polecam to demo new ultra-compact
The IndiePOV, billed as “a major advance in ultra-compact cameras”, will be introduced on the Polecam stand. Designed and built by Vienna-based Indiecam GmbH, the IndiePOV incorporates a high-grade 2/3 inch CMOS imager and delivers 1080p HDTV at up to 30 frames per second in 10 bit uncompressed 4:2:2 or RAW modes. The camera measures only 40 x 40 x 100 millimetres and weighs just 170 grammes.
“The IndiePOV is one of the finest miniature cameras ever brought to market and is ideal for use across our entire range of portable support systems,” comments Polecam Managing Director Steffan Hewitt. “It is also the perfect complement to the Polecam Wide and Narrow motorised pan/tilt heads which we will also be launching at IBC.
“The excellent picture quality of the IndiePOV makes it ideal for programme-makers at a time when broadcasters are becoming increasingly keen to deliver the best possible images to HDTV audiences. It can be used in single-camera, 3D and multi-camera modes. The build quality is also superb and the value for money nothing short of breathtaking. If you are coming to IBC to see the latest cameras, this is one to put at the head of your list.”
“With a native 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution and 5 micron pixel size, the IndiePOV can be configured to output at 23.98, 24, 24.98, 25, 29.97 or 30 frames per second, progressive scan,” details Polecam Sales & Marketing Manager Jeremy Curtis. “The standard model has a C-mount 25 millimetre lens attachment with adjustable back-focus. We can also supply a PL-mounting version if required. The camera head includes tri-level sync input, 3G-SDI, and RS-484 optical-isolated digital in/out. No external control unit is required. Power consumption is 2.7 watts average from a 7 to 24 volt direct-current source. A universal mains adapter is included.”
