As part of Digital Cinema Society’s annual coverage of the events happening around Cine Gear Expo, we visited the West Coast headquarters of Vitec’s Creative Solutions group on September 23rd 2021. We interviewed Colin McDonald about SmallHD and Teradek‘s latest products, Holly Rusk covered everything new from Wooden Camera, and we were lucky to catch up with Frame.io’s Michael Cioni who gave us an update on their Camera-2-Cloud initiative which includes Teradek as a technology partner.
Creative Solutions Product Manager for Teradek and SmallHD, Colin McDonald details the latest products from both brands including the 4K Cine 13 Monitor with 1300 to 1 contrast ratio, 15 nits of brightness, and 10 bit color depth in a very compact form factor which is designed with the Focus Puller in mind. He also shows off the Cine 24, a 24″ ultra-bright, color accurate monitor created with video village in mind, and an OLED 22” designed for high-end post production applications with a full 100% of P3 color space. Coming soon will be the SmallHD Vision Series which will feature HDR.
Colin also goes through their many Bolt wireless products including the Bolt 4K family which features a Monitor Module capable of wireless touch screen camera control. He also presented the Bolt 4K LT, which is a more cost effective model that is very capable, but smaller, lighter, and doesn’t have all the features of their top-of-the-line models. https://vimeo.com/614007677
