Posted on Jun 1, 2010 by Definition Magazine
S.TWO has announced their 3D capture and workflow support with the latest version of their OB-1 on-board recorder for digital cinematography. The new release has full 3D recording capability for 2 x digital cinematography cameras at 444 or ARRIRAW T-Link 3K.
The new system uses ‘quad link’ HD-SDI for two streams of uncompressed 444 recording and playback, combined with on-board monitoring, external timecode and remote start/stop capabilities.
Also announced is full portable 3D workflow with the latest version of S.two’s FlashDock transfer station. Featuring automated real time editorial dailies, databased redundant archive to optional built-in LTO drives, RS422 controlled dual link HD-SDI output, and lay-off to e-SATA hard drives.
“With the growing popularity of 3D productions, we have introduced quad link support for dual 444 cameras as a free upgrade for all OB-1 users,” states Steve Roach, Vice President of S.two. “Quad link also turns on 444 to 60P and vari-frame recording for ARRI D-21 cameras as well as 50FPS ARRIRAW, and positions OB-1 for full Alexa support.”
