Gekko to Introduce Lenslite D-SLR Mount at IBC2011‏

Gekko Technology will introduce a new D-SLR mount for its lenslite LED-based ring light at IBC. The D-SLR mount attaches the lenslite lamphead to Canon 5D, 7D and Nikon D3 cameras. Fixing directly to the base of the camera via the tripod screw, the mount secures 15 millimeter bars, which hold the lamphead on axis around the lens. The base of the mount has an additional fixing so the camera/lenslite combination can still be mounted on a tripod, but with the center of gravity moved forward for stability.

“D-SLR cameras such as the Canon 5D have become very popular tools for video content acquisition and look likely to remain so given their versatility,” said Gekko Technology founder and managing director David Amphlett. “The new lenslite D-SLR mount provides all the benefits of a high-quality solid-state fixture that was once only the domain of much larger professional cameras.”

Designed for studio or location production, and with a color temperature of 5600 Kelvin, lenslite delivers 260 foot candles of intensity at a distance of 3 feet. Being a ring-light, it is ideal both as a primary light source or as soft fill. It can be operated via any 12 volt to 40 volt power source. Accessories include filter stages, gel holder, gel cutting template, adjustable French flag, wireless or cabled dimmers and a remote DMX interface.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

1
Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
