Thomson Grass Valley makes Infinity widely available from North American dealer network
Thomson Grass Valley’s Infinity digital media camcorder is now widely available from its certified broadcast equipment dealers and system integrators across North America.
The Infinity complements all types of file-based workflows and uses full 1920 x 1080, 2/3in Xensium CMOS imagers, REV PRO removable media and industry-standard CompactFlash, in a variety of capacities and features. It is switchable between HD and SD and supports formats including 1080i, 720p, PAL and NTSC.
Many Infinity dealers worldwide have already begun to give clients hands-on demonstrations that focus on the advantages of its inherent file-based workflow. Clients who sign up for personal demo sessions with their local dealer receive special consideration, in terms of equipment availability and on-site training.
At NAB2008, Thomson introduced the new Infinity DMC 1000/20, a high-performance camcorder for ENG and EFP applications, which offers expanded recording capacity and improved performance over the previous generation via Thomson’s new REV PRO XP and ER disks. Other new additions to the Infinity product family include the new Infinity digital media recorder (DMR) that records and plays back material shot with the Infinity DMC 1000/20 and stored on REV PRO XP and ER disks. The Infinity DMR will also record and play back material from other external sources including cameras and nonlinear editors (NLEs) such as the Thomson Grass Valley EDIUS and Aurora NLE tools.
