We have just invested in two of these amazing video production cameras offering a unique combination of professional HD imaging, compact design and lens versatility, the user-friendly C100 is ideally configured for single person use.
Taking surgical recordings to a new action-packed level is the latest addition to our inventory of high definition equipment.
Besides the capture of medical imaging systems with video capture units and the use of shoulder and jib-mounted video cameras there are times when you really need to get a surgeon's eye view of the procedure. Our Panasonic 4K cameras allow even the longest of procedures to be captured in amazing quality, this added to the use of industry standard high fidelity lavalier and shotgun microphones makes for an immersive experience for your viewers.
So if you have a procedure that you want to record then contact us for a discussion.
I am increasingly being asked to capture video output from a range of devices be they high-end cameras or advanced medical imaging systems.
To meet this demand I have a range of video capture units including Epiphan AV.io units that can capture video from a range of feeds including HDMI, HD-SDI, DVI and VGA. These units then feed video, in a similar fashion to a webcam, into one of my Mac workstations. This video stream can then be recorded for post-event editing or streamed live to an exclusive audience or even worldwide using the likes of YouTube Live, GoToMeeting, FaceBook Live or even Skype.
Below is quick example of capture from a Philips Medical Imaging System but could just as easily have been an X-Ray or Endoscopy unit. Recently I used my kit to enable Histopathology Workshops at the London Dermatopathology Symposium to be presented to dozens of delegates (plus be recorded for inclusion in HD screencast) rather than have numbers restricted to the number of seats on the microscope multi-head unit.
The cornerstone of our inventory of AV equipment has to be our Canon XF100 and XF105 1080p Professional Digital Video Cameras.
The unique XF105 is Canon’s smallest camcorder to include an MPEG-2, 50Mbps, 4:2:2 Full HD codec. Studio connectivity, professional audio and extensive customisation provides exceptional versatility. What this means is that we can capture full HD video footage all day long with high fidelity audio from our CatchBox, lavalier and shotgun microphones being overlaid via its two XLR inputs. The resulting video can then be streamed via its SDI and HDMI ports back to one of our Macs for live stream casting to a worldwide audience using a range of services from YouTube and Facebook Live to GoToMeeting.
The cameras can be powered by batteries or mains power making day-long operation a breeze. Its industry standard fittings allow attachment of the camera to any of our range of tripods from ultra-lightweight flight ready models through 2.5m tall Manfrottos with fluid heads for smooth pan and tilt operation onto our top of the range Jib Rigs for use in difficult and exciting settings such as operating theatres and confined spaces.
I have four of these beauties, one CatchBox Pro and three CatchBox Lite.
I first saw a piece about up and coming tech in the AV sector on the BBC website and just knew I had to get one. So PayPal account in virtual hand I managed to get a one on eBay as they weren't shipping to UK at that time. Once it arrived then fun began.
Clients, first of all, say "gimmick" but within 5 minutes they all LOVE it and so it is now a permanent feature of my Go Bag.
