Element Technica Quasar 3-D camera rigs ready for production

Element Technica, whose Technica 3-D rigs precisely position a pair of cameras to achieve realistic stereoscopic digital video for broadcast and cinema, is now delivering the first new Quasar 3-D rigs.

The Quasar is designed to accommodate full-size digital cinema cameras like the Sony F23 and F35, RED ONE, Panavision Genesis as well as full-body and box-type digital broadcast cameras like the Sony F950 and 1500, Grass Valley LDK cameras and others. The Quasar is a platform for matching zoom or prime lenses to accommodate any shooting style or format.

Prior to introduction of the Technica 3-D rigs, 3-D production typically used heavy equipment requiring specialized tools and a dedicated crew. The Technica 3-D series overcomes these stumbling blocks by providing 3-D systems that are lighter in weight and less costly, bringing 3-D acquisition down to the simplicity of traditional 2-D production.

Technica 3-D rigs require only a set of Allen wrenches and a mirror gauge for complete camera/lens installation and precise alignment, which can be completed in less than 15 minutes as opposed to the hours required with other professional 3-D systems.

Technica 3-D systems will soon be available in three different sizes. The largest system, Quasar, and the midsized Pulsar mount box-style digital cinema cameras such as the Scarlet, Epic and the SI-2K. The ultra-small Neutron is designed for the tiny 2/3in or 1/3in imager cameras using C-mount lenses such as the SI-2K Mini and the Iconix. All three Technica 3-D systems can convert from parallel to beam-splitter configuration and back, depending on the application.

WMUR-TV Says FAA Drone Rules Preclude ENG
The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
