Vigits intros “Stopbox” iris control

February 13, 2005

Vigits has introduced Stopbox, an iris control system that adjusts cine-style lenses on HD and SD video production cameras.

Designed by HD production engineers Barry Minnerly and Abby Levine, the compact and lightweight unit enables remote iris adjustment from the video camera controller and makes it easy for DPs and lighting directors to match multiple cameras on the sets of sitcoms and other TV programming.

Levine and Minnerly have a history of developing notable products. In 1984, they developed the Log-It 100 software package for video and film logging applications. At New York City’s Rebo High Definition Studio, they launched ReStore, the first HD Macintosh-based frame buffer, and ReScan, an HD downconverter. Stopbox includes a motor-control cable.
