Both films are captured by cinematographers Fabian Wagner and Korsshan Schlauer, using Canon Cinema EOS cameras, lenses and monitors on-set. “Our partnership with Lammas Park is a chance for Canon to directly engage with up-and-coming filmmakers,” added Aron Randhawa, European product marketing specialist, Canon Europe. “Our ambition is that this will pave the way to removing barriers people face in the early stages of their careers.” The two short films are slated to air at festivals next year. ray of sunshine Megapixel VR is launching its Helios LED Processing Platform software release, v22.11, making it the first in the industry to support SMPTE ST 2110 standards for real-time production. Standards include video, sync and metadata streams over IP for real- time production, playout and other professional media applications. It can support up to four simultaneous ST 2110 inputs for stitched canvases. This means users have flexibility for signal distribution and routing with a complete IP workflow, eliminating need for dedicated signal conversion gear and legacy video signals with cable length restrictions. “Along with new workflows, we’re excited to be launching our Megapixel Cloud platform that enables seamless monitoring and operation of display systems from anywhere in the world,” said Megapixel CEO, Jeremy Hochman. A new service, Megapixel Cloud, allows full remote access to display systems via the cloud, for central maintenance and support of retail deployments, architectural spectaculars and time-sensitive live events or broadcasts.

ALL IN ONE Power a high-voltage cine cam and Teradek MAX transmitter with just one cell


The Teradek Bolt LT TX only accepts up to 28v, meaning high-voltage camera build scenarios become a challenge when high-voltage packs require more energy. With the Helix caddy, the TX is provided with a DC 12v 2-pin Lemo connection to safely power the Teradek TX while powering the camera with high voltage. A 1/4in-20 on the bottom of the unit secures the TX in place, while side openings provide full access to I/O ports as well as full view of the TX’s LCD and buttons/switches. Both products can be pre-ordered now.

Batteries and charging solutions specialist Core SWX has introduced Helix retrofit plates for Teradek MAX transmitters and the Helix caddy for Teradek Bolt LT transmitters. These provide a solder-less, interconnected solution to exchange the current V or G plates for Helix V, Helix G or B-Mount battery mount plates. Specially designed to provide a safe and secure power pass through to high- voltage-compliant cameras, the plates provide a DC 12v 2-pin connection to power the Teradek MAX transmitter without compromising safety.
