For Immediate Release
FUJIFILM INTRODUCES NEW IS-TOWER IMAGING SYSTEM AT NAB 2014
New software and hardware designed for multiple camera broadcasts
VALHALLA, N.Y., March 18, 2014 – Adding to its acclaimed Image Processing System line up, FUJIFILM North America Corporation’s Imaging Division will demonstrate prototypes of its IS-Tower Imaging System at the National Association of Broadcasters show at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Booth #C7025 Center Hall, from April 7-10, 2014.
The system includes the FUJIFILM IS-Tower Software, which, when used along with the IS-100 processor, provides an extremely fast and easy way to apply looks to any number of chosen cameras in an instant, or to quickly create and save new looks on the fly. Designed for multiple camera broadcasts by way of ACES color management, the IS-Tower App will be demonstrated with live feeds from a mixture of digital cinema and broadcast cameras on the show floor.
Fujifilm will also showcase the newly-developed IS-Tower hardware, a small rack-mounted unit with multiple camera inputs and outputs for easy connection to the IS-100 on-set live color grading system. The IS-Tower hardware, which will be a made to order item, features a fan-less design with eight 3G HD-SDI ins and outs, eight Ethernet ports, and redundant internal power supply for reliability in a 19 x 3.5 x 14 inch case. IS-Tower is usable in 4K workflows as well. As part of a soft introduction, the IS-Tower system has recently been successfully field tested on more than six live television broadcasts in Japan and the United States, and was developed in cooperation with WOWOW, Inc., a major Japanese broadcaster.
In addition to the IS-Tower Image Processing System, and the IS-100 on-set live color grading system, Fujifilm will also feature the IS-mini portable digital color adjustment device.
The IS-mini is a small hardware device that takes incoming HD-SDI digital camera moving picture video and converts the color information via two sets of 1D LUTs and 3D LUTs to outputs of both HD-SDI and HDMI connections – all in record time while still delivering high quality imaging. This highly popular product will be shown with an improved software package for more calibration functionality and third-party LUT compatibility. 4K monitor calibration is made possible through multiple IS-mini units feeding 4 inputs.
Fujifilm will also demonstrate the recent integration of the IS-mini with Pomfort’s Live Grade Pro grading software, allowing digital imaging technicians and cinematographers to achieve full control of live HD-SDI signals from digital cameras by way of this commonly available application.
The Fujifilm IS-Tower software will be available in summer 2014.
