Pictorvision Introduces Eclipse Multicam Array for Aerial VFX Plate Shots


LR-Panocam CU_LRPictorvision announced the launch of its new Eclipse gyro-stabilized Multicam Array, designed to capture the high-resolution panoramic VFX plate shots from a helicopter.

The Multicam Array relies on six off-the-shelf 5K Red Epics (recording to RedMags) in an array three across by two rows high. A seventh Epic is used in the cockpit as Master Controller. All six shooting cameras can be monitored live on one screen or isolated individually. When all six images are stitched together, the result is a seamless 12K (46 Megapixel) image with a 140 degrees horizontal, 60 degrees vertical view.

The company is offering a set of six Canon EF 24mm f1.4L II USM lenses and filter kits or Canon lens mounts to accommodate customer-supplied lenses. In addition to aerial use, the Eclipse Multicam Array can be used on the ground with small cranes via a Mitchell-mount adapter.

Productions can use the same Eclipse system for either intensive single camera shooting, or to capture seamless plate shots using the new Multicam Array. The time to change between them is 4 hours.
